Our "Taxes are being wasted in the Hands of Mayor Danny Carter ! The Police dept has no one with any real experience or police training. All our Mayor is doing is just ordering the men to write speeding tickets. And before you ask , No I have not had a ticket in years !! Let's just face the facts . Carter is not going to leave a chief alone. Every employee under Carter must present himself as "Fearing Carter " or feeling inferior to him. The Mayor is a control freak , and people who have known him for years know this !! He is abusing his power , and many of us are getting feed up. When the real Police work is needed , it is not going to be there. WE HAVE NO EXPERIENCE DETECTIVE to solve REAL Crimes. As a town WE ARE IN TROUBLE and falling deeper in every day under the leadership of a control freak !! The town should save our money and give the police dept over to the sheriff. Carter will never keep his hands off of it and allow the men to do their jobs !!

I think the Sheriff's Dept handles some of the criminal stuff in Pennington Gap anyways. At least the drug stuff. The Sheriff was over them before and from what I heard couldn't wait to turn it back over to the town. It was a headache for them and was a burden from their normal duties in running the County Sheriff's office. There are things that the town cops do that the county cops aren't use to doing. What the town of Pennington needs is an experienced Chief to run the police dept. Unfortunately you're gonna to deal with this situation until your mayor is gone or sanctioned where it comes to the police.

Did I read on one of the post on here that the Mayor was a prison guard at one time? Maybe that's why he is such a control freak. Have you ever seen a prison guard that wasn't. I can tell you from experience they are. They treat their family like prisoners or like they are in boot camp one. Then get out in public and act like they are the greatest man that ever walked the earth. Like they don't do no wrong. What a joke.

If the town paid the sheriff dept half the money its costing the city we would still come out ahead. Give the money to the sheriff dept. ; ( The officers state they can not do their job without the mayor harassing them. ) There will be another law suit before long. Even the town council as well as the mayor can be held accountable as individuals. Read the Topix in other locations and you will see how other towns are sued as well as council members. the council is allowing carter to run over them . They should make a stand against him.

As far as town police doing their job that is a complete JOKE! And no some are not even certified! I received a speeding ticket in the summer from a town officer; come to find out he wasn't even supposed to be using a radar! I live in town, and there has been more than one burglary in a month in the same area, they have shot lights out, tried to break into new peoples bank, and stolen out of the cars. I was one who got stolen from and it has happened 2 times now! Yes we turned it into the police and wrote a report, have they done anything about it? NO! They are to busy sitting at the gas station every night with those girls. They will do something about it when a house in the area gets broken into and someone is killed! The mayor is abusing every power he has and should Be concerned with more than just speeding tickets.
