I live in Hawkins County, near Church Hill. I am tired of all the jokes about the county. Rogersville makes us look bad with stories of Meth, Incest, Child Molesters etc. When will they clean up Rogersville.I went there regularly as a child, now I tell people to stay away, because of the crime. What kind of area do the youth have to live in after graduation. I bypass Rogersville, Do the fokes in Rogersville realize all the jokes made about them in Kingsport. We are the comedy page for the Kingsport Times. The Sheriff I believe is trying hard, maybe they could get the military to help. The good people of Rogersville should band together and get rid of the trash

The trash keeps the cops, public defenders, court appointed attorneys, jailers, probation officers, child welfare officers, judges and a good part of the emergency room personnel employed. Consider for a moment if there were a drastic reduction in crime. What would these non-trash people do for a living? You have to realize the trash exist for a reason. The people in power keep the trash around in order to profit.

Sorry my friend. I wish you were right but unfortunately you aren't. Tennessee is the number one meth state and hawkins co is the 2nd worse county in the state. If the citizens don't band together we will most certainly lose our beautiful county. It's time to do something.

Your ignorance is appalling, the sheriff runs the whole county and your end is just as bad. Rogersville as a whole does not have that much crime, most of it is in the county, and sheriff Lawson has done one hell of a job at knockin out the meth labs, I know a fellow that is now clean from the shit because it is not readily available anymore. If you want to pick on one section you can point towards Mooresburg and Lakeview area, but they have been cleaned up as well. "YOUR" end is where they found that big fancy house with the meth bein made in the basement......hmmmmm!!! Oh and yep, the kiddie porn guy is yours also, check Hawkins co. Detention and you will find many Church hillians in the pokey, so keep sittin up on that high horse and look down your nose toward Rville, we will survive!!!

Mooresburg is the worst area for drugs in the county. We need to put a lid on office help and salaries in other departments, especially school board, so more money can go to the drug war.

Very true as well as Surgoinsville area. I have lived in Surgoinsville for 18 years and it needs some cleaning up.

I meant the lower end of the county most with Rogersville addresses. I am not talking about lower level crime, I am talking about crimes that embarrass our area.Shooting at Walmart, dead infant, two cousins who are lovers fighting, man hit woman with ham, drunk teacher, DA charged 2nd time, Believe me I spend so much time trying to distance myself from Hawkins County. We all have loafers drawing checks, I will bet our area gets more government money than we pay in. Somethings got to change and It starts with the people helping the kids and helping your neighborhood. A few years ago Cherokee High had one of the 10 worst graduation rates in Tennessee, below 70 percent. How does that sound for our future? Based on the news in the area I would not start a business or buy a home in Rogersville.
