more corruption coming out of hawkins county.

First it was Jeff Thacker thinking he was above the law, refusing to take drug tests. Now Sarah Davis thinks she is the one giving orders rather than the one serving the public. Sarah Davis thinks she is better than everyone else, she thinks she can do whatever she pleases and everybody else in the world revolves around her. What an arrogant idiot.

This is why people hate government, their job is to sit behind their desks daydreaming, spending all your tax dollars, and dreaming up ways to make honest citizens miserable. Thacker, Davis, and the rest of these corrupt, nepotic knuckleheads are just like that POS in the white house. Thse people need to be thrown out.

So she refuses to comply with a judge, intentionally interferes with court business, thrown in jail then gets released on her own reconnaissance 40 minutes later??

Oh yeah, Hawkins county government takes care of their own, don't they?

Do you think if you interfered with court business, they'd let you out of jail 40 minutes later?? ummm, no.

Sarah Davis is like Hillary clinton, a master manipulator. I bet she provoked this judge to make a political statement. What's she running for next, President of the county??

This whole mess sounds like a bunch of wasteful spending, and politics..wth..I am not familiar with the way the court employment policies work, but wouldn't a write up, or just have the lady fired been more reasonable?? I sure would be scared to go to work every day, if I had to worry if I messed up I would be arrested..This doesn't make good sense to me...

Normally I would agree, but he asked her several times to comply and she refused. She was also given fair warning that she would be held in contempt. So, I think this is a fair punishment and like it was said earlier, she was out in less than an hour on her own recognance, that wouldn't have happened if someone off the street was held in contempt. I hope this brings her down a few notches.

Who ever released her , should be investigated. I agree, we wouldn't be released like that.

She's an elected official, I don't think she can be just fired. She should of responded to the judges request. It's just more embarrassment for the Hawkins Co. justice system. I hope she looked presentable for her mug shot.

Randall Collier, who is running for Sarah Davis's office, is big buddies with Judge Ross. Both the same age and both are from Mount Carmel. Obviously this is politically motivated. Now Mrs. Davis has this trumped up charge hanging over her head for most of the campaign season. I thought we just got rid of a crooked judge.

Somebody needs to take a look at Collier's personnel records from when he worked at the Mount Carmel Police Department. It would be very enlightening as to the sort of character who will now probably be our next clerk of courts.

Give me a break! Don't start that she done it to herself! Who cares about the past I'm sure we all including YOU have one! Let's talk about the kinda guy he is right now. He's done nothing but set good examples of himself while serving on the school board. He will do what's right and in the best interest of the citizens of hawkins county!

Don't wander off topic here. This is about an elected official's irresponsibility to the office. There seems to be no disagreement that it truly happened.

This isn't the first time Davis has shown disrespect to a county official. She openly disrespected commissioner vaughn when he questioned her need for increasing her budget at the taxpayers expense.

Who do you think they are imitating? This is just cookie cutter behavior. They have just watched how Hawkins Co does business and thought they wanted a piece of the pie too. Can you blame them. Look at the people who run this town and how they maintain their office and reward themselves, family members, and best buddies! Can't blame new manipulators from wanting in on the game. You sure can't beat them...so might as well join them! Nice try. Just wonder what the rest of the story is.

Let's see now...

Ms. Davis has, in the recent past, requested at least twice to the county commission to increase her funding in order to hire one more part time employee o assist with the increased work load in her office. Turned down by the county commission twice.

Judge Ross just requested a full time judge position for Juvenile Court due to the increased case load. He also mentioned that he has a full docket.

Seems to me that if the judicial workload has increased...additional employees might be needed to do the job. If not, some necessary things might get left undone...

This might be a way to bring this situation of possible inadequate numbers of employees to the forefront of the county's attention. May not have been the best way but it might work...
