JUSTICE for ALL

ya know it's sad when the Sheriff doesn't even stand behind his employees; didn't even support them in court. The justice system seriously failed them. Cannon Co didn't do enough to ensure they got the best representation they were only worried about the county and their precious unworthy sheriff. I hope these boys appeal the ruling, hire a private attorney (not one provided by the county) and win. To the County and Sheriff karma's a bitch and it always comes around. Cannon County definitely doesn't need someone in office that doesn't have the balls to back the men that he entrust the safety of his county to. I hope justice is served all the way around.

"Justice for all" I completely agree with you! For one I know both of these Officers and they represent law enforcement well and wouldn't have intentionally or maliciously taken someone's life unless without feeling in fear of their own life, two, God Bless his soul and family, Mr. Butcher was known to be an outlaw and did not like authority and had previous run ins and fights with the law and many people knew that including his family now that doesn't mean he deserved to die but if the officer said he felt threatened it should reasonably be believed, and finally three, if you trust to hire someone as a sworn officer of the law Mr. Sheriff and give them a badge and gun and trust them to uphold the law you should be willing to stand beside them in this time of adversity. If you can't do that with your own men who are to watch your back how can we trust your not out for yourself and not your community?

208 Deaths at the hands of Law Officers So Far This Year. These 2 Get Convicted? Sounds Like Nashville Style Justice.

Amen what can you do when faced with an idiot armed with a car. I'm proud of the officers and the fact that at the end of the day, they went home to their families. Was it Darrell Young that didn't support them?

F@$ k you and the horse you rode in on. If you don't want people responding to your post, then it's simple don't post. You are the idiot! I guess I know more about law enforcement than you ever will.(Third generation). Who do you think you're impressing by using leo. I will also have more college degrees than you can ever shake a stick at. Fortunately, I have never had to depend on public assistance. All you buttholes use that when you want to slam someone. That and telling people who are bilingual and take jobs that you feel are beneath you to go home. News Jack, home is where you hang your hat! Yes, even you. Furthermore, any moron knows to put an apostrophe in contractions. Only an idiot mixes upper case letters with lower case ones. It's a sure sign of low intelligence. You even misspelled misspelling! I don't guess I have to tell you to sign up for remedial adult classes. You have a blessed day, moron!
