They tried to acknowledge it, but too many dumbasses began bitching.

He along with Chief Stovall are the reason that crime is so bad in Paragould. The "It's not a problem as long as we don't acknowledge it" approach has seriously backfired on them.

Yeah he's one hell of a good mayor. look at how violent Paragould has become. look at the crime rate and the criminals taking over with a solution of the gestapo street crimes unit talk. all talk from such a little hitler

He and the city council appproved a rate hike so Paragould City Light & Power could buy more trucks other than that not much. No wait he and the city council approved the purchase of somemore cop cars. Other than those two items haven't seen much except an increase in sales tax and higher water rates. Oh I'd be careful lots of cops out on HWY 49 south they do have a license to steal.

I like Mayor Gaskill as a person but the Police Department is not as proactive as they should be. The Sheriff's Department is making more arrests in the city than the Police Department. It's a problem and the fact that Paragould is in the top 10 most dangerous cities in Arkansas (which also includes big cities like W. Memphis, Little Rock and Pine Bluff) is a huge problem. That does not help new businesses want to put down roots here. It's time for someone to step in and make some changes so that Paragould is safe again. Heaven help us if David Carter is the best we've got. Time for the Mayor to retire and give someone else a chance to do what needs to be done. I will say that I think the Street Crimes Unit is the best thing that has happened to the Police Department in a long time. They need to add more people to that group and run the drug users out of this town. I never in my 47 years of life thought that Paragould would be one of the most dangerous cities in Arkansas to live in. That is embarrassing and a black eye to our community.

We are only in the top 10 due to the number of reports entered, but they have to do reports for every call they go on, whether it's a barking dog. Or someone mistaking a vehicle backfire for a gunshot. But to add to it the officers are under paid at 12.18 an hour starting when a cashier at a grocery store makes more, Mike could change that but chooses to turn a blind eye. All while he collecting a huge salary to sit on his ass.

The mayor's baby is the fire department. He treats the police like a red headed step-child. He's a piece of chit, sux
he lost his role on Fantasy Island. "The plane, the plane!"

I haven't seen him doing anything spectacular for Paragould. I think someone needs to run against him. I think it's time for someone new.
