Here is the way I look at it. If you get one dealer at all you have done something. Every dealer is another one off the street. If they arrested 42 drug dealers that were selling pills then that is 42 that has been caught. I would say it isn't over. You people gripe regardless who gets arrested. Ed Thornton and billy Mac was pushing 10,000 pills a month and they arrested them months ago and you were griping then too. So sheriff department don't listen to these idiots. Keep up the good work and hope to see a lot more in the future. Thanks.
get it right

My Point is that if you don't get the big one, they simply find more addicts to push the drugs. To me that's not good for anything but costing the county money to house and feed them, then a lawyer to defend them & they go to rehab for a few month & right back at it. If you get them major ones that are bringing all the drugs into town, it would make it harder on them.

But I will agree that pills seem to be a different animal than cocaine or pot. More people have the ability to get them to start dealing. All you have to do is fake pain & go to pain clinic.

The main dealers will never get arrested because they are protected.

I totally agree, if you arrest a junkie that goes and gets two pills and sells one to another junkie/snitch you are just supplying the money to make the real dealer richer. I am also confident that the iron fist will be a soft slap on the wrist come court time. I bet the jail is vibrating tonight since they filled it with addicts today.

Well, I am glad that they got the drug dealers around Newport. They are NOT the ones that have poisoned OUR COMMUNITY literally to DEATH I guess we can just wait for the ambulance to come get the next victim of the phantom drug dealers in Hartford and Grassy ! Oh well ! at least we are fixing our headlights and taillights and the tourists are dodging the speed trap.

Wow, the biggest drug bust in Cocke County History ? BS, it is amazing to see your sheriff piss down the neck of his disciples and tell them that is raining. Maybe His personal reporter should research the Plain Talk archives. Thanks for the exaggerated numbers. Why did they not show the thousands of pills and ounces of crack ? They could have spread them out for four blocks and posed for a picture.

it may not be the biggest, but its something. more than the last few combined. if you dont like armondo, tell him. i dare you. or you can shut up, quit whining, go to police academy, run for sheriff, and do a better job. or maybe just shut up and be glad we have someone doing something!!!
not what it seems

They picked them up. Big deal. Most probably bonded out and were back in business by lastnight. I know Doyle Waldrop was. They pick Sara Proctor up yet? NOOO, why? Because she is a snitching bitch. Her boyfriend will be the next they pick up and she will move on to another stupid victim.

Everyone is selling pills. It does not matter if they get one two or three at least they are trying to do something to help. Cocke county has always had a bad name and I now can actually go out of this town and be glad to say I'm from Cocke county. People surrounding this county praise our sheriff department and there is officers that want to actually come here and work now. Don't let a few people discourage you in your efforts to At least try to get these drug dealers. I will support you all to farthest. I pay city and county taxes and live in the city park community and have tried to get our police department to stop drugs on susong and since I tried for three years I decided to put a tip in at the sheriff department and was finally successful. Thanks guys and keep working.
