Drugs, Dealing and the police

BC, I understand what you are saying. I have videotaped things as well and the police are just not interested.

However, if you find someone a little bit drunk in public, or urinating on the sidewalk, or riding a skateboard in the wrong area, then the full force of the law comes down.

I have my own ideas about why things are this way, backed up by things I have been told by those in the know, but I'm not going to say publicly. Some of you know what I am talking about.

Contact the TBI, they may be able to help. If not, they can give you some ideas about what to do.

Well, I for one think their doing a pretty damn good job myself. It's a friggin' shame that these people leave home everyday, not knowing what may happen to them, for people that just put them down like their worthless. Well their not!!

I'd like to have a magic wand to wave around & make all the bad disappear in the world, including a bunch of morons that have nothing better to do than sit around typing about how many cops they saw talking on their cell phones or how long their cars were idling.

People just assume what they want, oh but I'm sure someone will tell me different...that they know..they don't assume anything. You're just as fried as the druggie you seem to know all about.

Who wouldn't like to see the drugs stop?? They can only do so much at a time. Just because you bring it up one day & it's not resolved by the next day..oh hell, watch out...those sorry a$$ cops aren't gonna do a thing about it.

Well, I beg to differ...I get to put a little 2 year old child to bed everynight, I get to read to him, I get to tell him that I love him everyday.....all because these guys that are put down so many times saved his life from a meth lab. Not only his, but my sister's too.

Believe it or not, they care! About 4 or 5am after the meth lab was found, my nephew was asleep in his car seat & one of the cops, I don't know which one, went to their car & got him a teddy bear out & laid it in there with him. You had to be in my shoes to know how much that meant to me.

So try your best to let your brain do the thinking before your fingers start typing!

Justice, are you one of the drug dealers? I can't imagine why you have so many problems with these discussions. You seem to be very fond of the status quo.

In another thread, it came up about all the drug dealing. People were attacked for discussing it, told they should not be allowed to talk about it, if they have a problem, report it to the police. Some of us HAVE reported these things to the police, year in and year out. Some of us have gathered evidence such as videotaping drug deals and other sorts of crimes. The result is always the same, the police are not doing their job.

Sorry you live in a fantasy world where there is no crime or drug dealing because the police are doing their job. Very interesting that the best response you can come up with is to say that those of us working to stop the problem are drug addicts ourselves. Lovely bit of namecalling there.

But again - I can't think of many reasons why this discussion is any of your business, unless you are one of the drug dealers, or one of the police that does business with them.

Which one is it?

"Which one is it?" Both

You can't think of any reason this is any of my business?? Well sorry Bubba, I can give you one...THIS IS A PUBLIC FORUM!

Now, I just answered a couple of your questions..you see it your way, I see it mine. What's left? Nothing.

Again I say knowing something and and proving it are two different things. I'm not saying the police can't be wrong, but the time you spent on here bitching and crying you could have done something usefull like either call or pay a visit to the District Attorneys office to ask why your tape wasn't good enough. Again I say get involved, and making smart a$$ comments about the police on Topix doesn't count. I know I will get some negative feed back for this, but I'm telling the truth. If your tape isn't good enough find out why, and what you can pay attention to to help prosecute them.

Well for one Waldo I was told it didnt matter,(PERIOD) what "my" tape showed. The reason why ,I was told on mine, was because they did not witness it so it was not able to be used at all..I am spending MY time on here bitching and crying because every door I have tried locally has been basically slammed in my face. I am on here bitching because "I" with my own 2 ears and eyes see when the cops do show up (not all but several) come out laughing and joking with my neighbors in question. I will say there are a few good officers but more that arent from the ones I have personally seen there and dealt with. The good ones I commend but the others are sorry excuse's behind a badge and too those when I have had the opportunity I personally told face to face to get their sorry ass's out of here and send someone that knows whats going on and what to do about it. Again I will say I am not speaking of all but some. Its a shame when people have to put up with this stuff going on, worring about your familys safety and your property. Most all the neighbors around feel the same. The system and the police seems to just add insult to injury to what we in our particular situation has gone thru. The neighbors I am refering too are well known by the city and county due to their constant trouble they have been in all their lives. We think they even have a reserved cell but they never keep them long mayby a week at most at a time. We dont understand how habitual offenders can do this. We also know what is going on for facts as I will say back in my youngers days in teen years we had our rounds with pot, drinking and the other things going around and going on. This was all back in the time when I was young and stupid myself but outgrew those things when married and kids of our own. I will also say if it was just pot it really wouldnt be that big of an issue, but it lots more. Major pills, meth, ect that we know for a fact and thru other sources. And after 20 years of thesee\ people we are wayyyyyyyyyy over it. I could go on and on.
Its just a shame you try to do the right things give the cops plain black and white evidence, and all you get from them is we know we know, we are working on it. This is the 2nd generation of a deadbeat family and even sadder they have a 3rd generation that will follow suite. Maybe a couple will get smarter and stray to a better path.
Not coming down on you Waldo for your opinion but kinda rubs me the wrong way when I hear that from someone especially when they arent living beside this bunch and been dealing with all this. I guess I was just in hopes there might be someone with a idea we may overlooked that would work or maybe some of the cops that get on here might take to heart what we are going thru and just maybe do the job they have better to help people out. I still have that worry with 1 having aids and 1 hepatitis that some innocent child could be majorly affected from this. Isn't that their job anyways is to help protect the innocent or was that just on dragnet instead.

I'm off my soap box now done bitching and crying and going to bed. If any typos sorry didnt spell check

BC- Question...do they have small children? If so, call DCS...be anonymous...tell them your concerns & they HAVE to go out & check.

Just a thought..

Forgot...tell them it may be safer for them to have an officer to go also.

If you've called & nothing came of it...call again & again & again.

yes they do, and as I said in a earlier post I have and nothing happened. Wasn't even annoymous, told them who I was but still no response, thats what I mean having tried everything we felt. Seems no one cares legal wise.

I'm sorry, it was late when I wrote that...too sleepy to reread everything :).

DCS didn't even go out?? That's just NOT right! About DCS, I can tell you that someone from Nashville told me yesterday, they were in the process of straighten them out. I sure hope so. A lot of people have been complaining to Nashville about them!!

I know you're upset about this & I'm not being a smarta$$, but have you spoken with David B. from the Sheriff's Dept.?

Thats ok Justice. I know your not being a smart a** or anything. I sincerely appreciate any and all suggestions. I sure hope the DCS gets in better shape around here. They have problems just as all govement operated services and systems do.
No I hadn't talked to David B. but its worth a shot. Actually its been a while now since talked to anyone anymore. Kinda got tired of wasting my time it seemed. I just keep watching the paper for a delinquent tax sale..LOL.
Guess its kinda like in another post, maybe if we clean out the offices of these elected officials and get some new fresh people in there some changes in our town and county might happen. WIshful thinking anyhow.

I agree with you..a lot of changes needs to be made with some of the "decision" makers..lol

Just give it a shot..go tell them you want to speak with David Benton & tell him all you know. He's a really nice person..you won't be going in there talking to a prick..lol. You know the kind, when you walk out you feel like, what the h3ll did I even come down here for..lol, well he's not like that.

Good luck!

My heart goes out to people like you, wanting to have crime stopped in your neighborhood and try as you may, you keep running into a wall. Sometimes when we fight for what we know is right it sems loke we are in the battle alone. Sweetie, I want you to know, your not alone and one day it will all come baxk on these people. Hang in there and keep the hope.

ya know ... a citizen can execute an arrest ... so if your " man " enuf, take your film and your friends ( S&W , colt etc )...film the transaction, block the vehicle and hold em...

police are historians ... dont expect pre-emptive action when their job is documentation of what happened, not the prevention of it.
