Its funny how everything comes out after election! I seen on another forum topic that this girl had split him and wife up... What about the new employee he has. Hired someone that had got fired from Taft for beating an inmate...He is picking some good ones...Bledsoe will always be messed up..

well,lets see....sheriff has an affair,gets a divorce,his k-9 officer gets a divorce,his detective has how many women on his list,his process server was accused of doing something with a certain corrections officer.Is he running a jail or a brothel.The sheriff is supposed to set the standerd for how he wants and expects his deputies to act and so far they are following right in his foot steps even though they are not the right ones.Ithink that the state should step in and remove him.Now of course that would put Gary Johnson in charge until another sheriff could be appointed.WAKE UP BLEDSOE your sheriff doesn't give a damn about being sheriff he just wants the pay check.

I am the one that mentioned it on another forum that this girl had split him and his wife up. It was something told to me and I repeated it and it wasn't denied. I don't usually repeat rumors but in the heat of the moment I did and I am sorry. I don't know what happened between Jimmy and his wife or who, or if he was with someone else. I know nothing of how he runs the sheriff's office but have always thought he was a good man with a good family. I voted for him because he seemed very dedicated. I hope everything works out for Bledsoe.

Debbie Wooden, whoever you are, I apologized for the only thing I said to who I needed to say it to. I didn't start the rumor so You need to contact all the people who knew about it before me. I should have never said what I did without having seen it personally.

Morris does not do his job....period. He is an individual that has no ethics or moral fiber. As a matter of fact, his entire department is lacking in both. Chris Holland is a piece of work. Reed is a sexual deviant (ask a certain jailer). Brewer is a moron who hides behind his badge. The new deputy was fired from taft for assaulting an inmate (and guess what? Morris was in the area of that same assault)....I can go on an on but Bledsoe deserves these fine deputies and circus master Morris. As for Morris and his affair laden life....just ask his soon to be EX wife.

WELL I CANT BELIVE YOU WOULD TALK ABOUT THESE MEN LIKE THAT DO YOU EVEN KNOW THEM? SAYING THAT SOMEONE IS A SEXUAL DEVIANT OR A PIECE OF WORK OR SOMEONE HIDES BEHIND THEIR BADGE ARE YOU A COP? IF SO WHY DO YOU DOWN THESE PEOPLE LIKE THIS NO MATTER WHAT YOU KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT LAY OFF THESE GUYS THEY ARE GOOD PEOPLE WHAT GOOD IS THIS BASHING DOING? DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE A BIG MAN. YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE HIDING BEHIND A BADGE YOU ARE HIDING BEHIND A STUPID SCREEN NAME. I BET YOU DONT EVEN WORK YOU JUST SIT AROUND YOUR HOUSE LOOKING AT COMIC BOOKS AND LOOKING AT YOUR OLD YEAR BOOKS. THESE ARE GOOD PEOPLE GIVE THEM A BREAK.

Just curious as to why these gentlemen's personal lives are our concerns? As long as they are not breaking any laws is it our business? Do your jobs, take care of your children, and live your lives the way you want.....Personally, I think everyone should mind their own business...

Any time someone is elected to an office they are expected to hold themselves to a higher standard than others.They are put in these posistions to represent the county and when they can't control the employees under them or their personal lives it reflects on the county,so if this is the way that Bledsoe wants to be thought of then its the people of Bledsoe that have to live with it.Bledsoe is looked at as a county that has a sheriff that doesn't care about being a professional and his deputies are following in his foot steps.Look at any county around you and you will see deputies with better pay,better equipment and more professionalism than Bledsoe has ever seen.To say personal lives do not matter is only correct to an extent.If the sheriff had a drinking problem or a drug problem would that be something that the public shoud stay out of...NO...so when he has an affair and sneaks around on his wife it reflects his honesty and integrity,so it does matter to the public.

Why do you want to talk about them? Does it make you feel good about your low life self? I am sure they haven't ever done anything to you! Matter of fact why don't you go tell them to their face instead of writing it on here. Would you like someone writing crap about you on here? NO!

This is the problem,Bledsoe is to busy looking at other cities problems instead of looking at what is wrong with their own county.Its like another post said...you voted him back in so you have to deal with it.When the state has to step in and run the new jail because the current admin. screws it up maybe then people will see....then again i doubt it,seeing that they were dumb enough to re-elect him.

yes when bledsoe county,has large tax increases like seq,county has..and finds out the jail cost money to opearate..people will be pissed..and yes the sheriff will take the blame..maybe people should look at other countys..and see the truth about jails..hamiltion county was trying to dump state prisoners,while bledsoe county was claiming you could make money on them..hamiltion county even broke down the cost..so often you can learn by watching others..

another thing,the state does not step in and run jails,,they decertify them to hold state prisoners..a little research you will find other countys in tn. where they built new jails to hold state prisoners,,then shut them down due to cost,and moved back into there old jail..so maybe it pays to read the news from other countys..
