I am ashamed to say I am from such a corrupt little town. Recently a 77 year old woman was hit from behind by a 19 year old "boy" . The police reported him going 35 mph (in a 25 mph zone) and her 10 mph since she just turned onto the street. Not only did the police say SHE was at fault but they also fabricated an eye witness. Give me a break. Someone needs to clean up the town and start with City Hall.

I have heard about those coppers in Red Bay. I like how the Chief is leading the way by using city money to fund his own little getaway; to Montgomery, none the less! Here's to a little town with corruption running amuck!

Not only are the police corrupt but apparently the whole establishment. A few families try to control the town and even stop new industries from setting up shop there for fear of higher wages and losing their control. I was informed that drugs are available at will. I have never regretted packing my bags and moving on to a much better life elsewhere. The little town with it's backward mentality continues to bleed to death. That is evident each time I visit and see the area becoming a ghost town as the new bypass prepares its opening. It has gotten so bad New York is having their feces dumped in the town and surrounding areas.

Red Bay is filled with drugies and alot of it is the cops that we use to have around heres fault cause they were the ones that was crooks. We have some decent cops now. And at least you hear of a meth bust from time to time now. As far as our mayor we definitly need a new one, one that doesn't like the attention or should I say (DRAMA). And I am trying my best to raise my family in a christain home. Ya'll shouldn't be so judgemental towards the whole town there are some good people that still live here we just don't give up or run away from the problems.

I love the way people love to put our beautiful town down. Red Bay isn't corrupt, it just has a few corrupt people that live in it. I love how people, who don't live here and know what goes on love to put our town down. Red Bay has always had a few families trying to run the whole town. that goes with any small rural town. But to say the whole town is corrupt is just untrue. Drugts are available everywhere "at will" today, it doesn't matter where you are, or what town you are in. I don't want to see our town slip back to the era before Tommy Nelson. Whether you liked him or not, he cleaned our town up. That was the first time Red Bay had been clean since i can remember. Did I mention I've lived here all my life, except for the years I was in college. Further more, feces from New York are not being dumped in town, they are using them on the surrounding fields in our area, and Red Bay didn't have anything to do with the decision. That decision came from the environmental protection agency. As for the person who is glad they moved on to bigger and better things, those our the type of people our town doesn't need.

I agree...not everyone in Red Bay is corrupt...but there are quite a few!

As far as being cleaned up...even back when Tommy was mayor and even up til now...you can walk some streets and find hypodermic needles all around! Its crazy! You can go to other areas of the country and they will pull you over just because you are from Red Bay...there is a reputation.
There is a lot that goes on here that your average person does not even see or hear about.
Drugs are horrible and unless you have money here..you are nobody!
Experienced that first hand! You can't get a job unless you know someone. No not EVERY small rural town is this way...I have lived in other towns that were better...all do have their own things that are not so great...but over all Red Bay...is one of the worst ones...you pay 10 to 15 cents more for gas...and if you try to buy anything else you will pay way more than its worth! We need wal-mart so some of us lower income folks can get more for our money. I get more for my money in other communities around...even if I have to go to Fulton or Russellville.

I think we may need to start a forum about ole "Common Sense" before its over. None the less, what's up with the Chief of Police, the man that was called a, and I quote from Mr. Strawbridge from the City Council meeting, "Self Centered Wyatt Earp." Did he wreck a city car today or his own?

Ok, so I started this forum and there have been a lot of responses. Some crazy, some TRUE and some crazy. I went back to Red Bay to visit recently and witnessed two council meetings. I understand they were two of the best ones recently.(Pretty heated, repeated throughout the night, etc.) There are several issues facing Red Bay today, some new ones, but most have always been there and are getting worse. Yes, most small towns have their issues, but we are discussing Red Bay in this forum. To begin with, there are LAZY people in local government. The Mayor (appointed) and Police chief, number one, are out of shape. Great role models. Training for the police should include boot camp to get them into shape, off their computers and out of their cars that they apparently can't seem to get serviced regularly due to the fact they are too busy with their own agendas like planting evidence and writing up false reports. The council members themselves follow the "groupthink theory" of better yet the "I can't think for myself" theory. The only two council members worth keeping are BN and DM. The mayor needs to be taught some leadership principles. For example, don't chew gum on TV (you look like an idiot). Don't belittle people around you to try to further your own agenda, it just makes you look like a fool. And last but not least, if you are going to make comments on facts, make sure you check that you have true facts and not ones people just tell you are true.
My last issue for now is on the business leaders of Red Bay. Yes there are a couple of families that run the town. But why? Because they have been allowed to. Now, an election is coming up. Please use your mind and vote in a way that will make Red Bay better. Not in a way that the business leaders of Red Bay want you to, or pressure you to. Each person in Red Bay has value. You don't just have to go with the flow because your neighbor or coworker is. Nothing will change unless you step up and use your own mind.

Sorry PAO but this is too good to pass on. If in fact "MOB" and "Common Sense" are two different persons and not the same physical body just different personalities, then they need to get together and hang out. I suggest a nice quiet dinner by candle light with some soothing music to boot. Try the lamb, its scrumptious! Tell 'em the Mayor and the Police Chief sent y'all.

Hey there REAL ITALIAN, waitin' for you to come back and respond. I can not wait to see what will come from your fingertips next. If everyone else does not know, Common Sense/MOB has changed names to "Real Italian." This might just be ANOTHER personality coming out. Tick tock crazy person. LetÂ’s hear more about a knife and maybe tell the story where it is crammed up your ass. You wanna talk about the Dawson gang? Oh wait, who is that behind you? BOO! Keep lookin' cause they aint goin' away.

i wished people with no brains would keep on making conversations of this nature, i think if you would really get to checking on the facts!!!!! the red bay police dept is the best its ever been and as far as the chief- he's the best redbay's ever had and to be called wyatt earp i would take that as a compliment, redbay has needed one for a long time. as far as the corruption issue i think the fbi took care of that with the last police chief, but i guess thats why brainless people get on here and chat, yaw were probably friends of the exchief. thats the problem with society today people want to cowardly bitch in the background about stuff they dont have a clue about,get facts, and if their is so much corruption call the fbi, theirs a nice fbi office nearby in florence, but you brainless cowards probably didnt know that.

ok just so everybody knows..."COMMON SENSE OR MOB" is just a skitzophrenic guy who lives in red bay,al. he used to huff paint thinner and then he got on meth really bad. so now his brain is completely fried. if anyone who doesn't know that is reading this, please don't take to heart anything this poor crazy man says. he needs to take his meds.
also, if you are doing drugs, or are thinking about trying them...think long and hard about it, or you might end up like this guy....just say no!
