White County Voter

Searcy, AR

#1 Apr 1, 2010
OK well this is my gripe. I am a Citizen and voter of this county have lived here all my life. I am upset at the way things are going in White County. I am wondering why our former Sheriff hasn’t run again. Here why I say this. The way things are going know are ridiculous. We have a jail built for 330 beds, but a Sheriff that can only seem to hold 130 to a 165 prisoners at a time. We apparently have money because our former Sheriff Pat Garrett only made 52,000 a year and drove a broke down 96 caprice Chevy. Our Current Sheriff and his administration all drive new Chevy Tahoe’s & Suburban’s. They also have much larger salaries than our past administration did. Matter of fact our new Sheriff is currently earning 59,239. That’s a 7,239 dollar difference than our past Sheriff and were not getting near the work out of this administration. For prove you can visit the link below I have listed.

Our former Sheriff was extremely tough on our criminals in this county and now it seems as our new Sheriff isn’t. Our old Sheriff had a jail built for 54 and was housing 120 to 130 a night. Sounds to me he was pretty busy. His deputies were tough and worked hard and enforced our City, County, State laws. Our former Sheriff may have been tough, but got the job done. If you notice he was at every drug raid, worked the streets with his deputies and had an open door policy for his employees, and the citizens of this county. I can’t even get our new one on the phone. I have even been told by others that they have been pawned of on the Chief Deputy Jeremy Clark. These citizens don’t deserve that. Jeremy Clarks name wasn’t on the ballot and isn’t the Sheriff. We as the voters did not elect him. As far as the statistics go. I went and got my own copy’s to see what Ricky has done in his 6 years as our Sheriff, then compared it to what our former Sheriff Pat Garrett did. This administration hasn’t even come close. I urge you to go to the county court house request them yourself and see it in black and white. We are basically spending money in this county that could be spent on other things. This Sheriff’s administration hasn’t been near as tough on meth labs and hasn’t got near the recovery rate as Mr. Garrett’s administration did. On top of that everything they have to work with is practically brand new. For example new car, State of the art jail, and even a few more full time deputies and raises apparently for Ricky and his administration. I can’t speak for everyone but we need Pat Garrett back in office. He is a proven worker and the statistics in his six years show he can do the job. He says he don’t want to run again but if we go by his office and call his phone enough maybe he will. I have spoke to several deputy’s that work the patrol and they have told me things aren’t right. I wish I could name them but I don’t want them to be terminated.

White county voter your a stupid ass...you need to get the facts straight and learn to spell. Pat is a likable person yeah but he's no sheriff. Yeah he was on drug raids and crime scenes and junk like that but everything he touched turned to crap. His cronies were crooked and yeah you have a high recovery rate when you yourself have most of the stolen property. I would take you to the bank on a bet that the drug arrests prison time and seizures are way up from when idiots like Greg Williams and Preston Clark were in there are you kidding me? Well there are only a few people stupid enough to believe what you have written and even fewer who would write that horse shit so yeah way to go you must be one of ole pats boys huh.

My father and I are good men. We have never done anything wrong. I am not a wife/g/f beater and I have never known my dad to do that. The deputies and I were supper close and hung out with all the depuites and CID & Narcs we basically we were all a big family up there. I still talk to many of them. But as far as what I have done thats basically nothing. I work 9 to 5 at blue star and hang out with my friend Jordan Woods. I am not out breaking the law or beating no one. I'm sure its someone who dont even know me that would post it. Maybe my dad does need to run again. Seems like I great idea to me. I know Greg & Preston personally by the way an hate to tell ya but there good guys. My dad was an ex marine and a former Deputy/Constable/Sheriff so I was raised just right. If he was so bad why did we elect him for 3 terms. He saved our jail, got us a new one got us new cars. I have the facts I was at the Sheriffs office at least once a day if not more and have seen just about everything you cold see. So before everyone goes to spreading rumors come ask me and I will just tell you the truth. Gotta Get Back To Work!

If you have the facts and don't like gossip then is it true that you were accused of molesting your own cousin? Yeah sounds like you were raised right. And to reply to the earlier comment no pats chief never was out drinking etc but I seem to remember one of his administration having to resign or something because they got a dwi in a police car in Texas with pat at a law enforcement function. Yep let's bring back that kind of policing hahahahahahahaha

He wasnt in a police car. he was off the clock in another state. working for our privately owned company at a gunshow. the sheriffs office offer the deputy help and when he refused it they had no choice but to let him go. In case you didn't hear I was found not guilty everything was dropped cause it wasn't true. Ya happy did i clear it up for you?

I didn't say they that makes it ok to drink and drive. I am saying that it was in our company truck and on our company time in a diff state. He wasn't doing it in uniform or on duty or acting as a deputy sheriff for the citizens of white county. An yes I am innocent. Why doesn't anyone put there real name.LOL I mean thanks white county voter for having respect for my dad but I use my real name? its easy to lie and bash someone when you got no balls to say who you really are. But whatever... Hide behind it. Makes me laugh. It doesn't bother me. I'm use to the public scrutiny. My dad was constable & sheriff and not a day went by that someone didn't have something bad to say or negative or a rumor.

You and "White County Voter" write almost identically. Did you just give props to yourself 'o' ball-less one?

Ha yeah that's true they do write the same. And I have a job. I don't have to get on topics and proclaim what a wonderful stand up person I am. Mr. Garrett are you trying to convince us your a good person or yourself? And to reply to an earlier comment you made I knew several of the deputies and CID people that worked for your father and just to let you in on a little secret....they didnt like you then and don't like you now they only tolerated you because you were the sheriffs son and they were scared of what he'd do to them if they told you to go away.

I don't like to talk about things that I don't know, But I will say what I hear. I have not heard really anything good about what went on when Pat was sheriff. As everyone notice there are more people saying negative things about him than good. Why does people pay and new cars have to be a negative thing. Pay goes up every year in almost every job and the police need god cars and salary to keep people in their job. Police should be paid better than what they get know.Chris, you hang out with Jordan Woods, really. Anyone working for the sheriff department or for any police should have enough common sense not to drive while drinking. No excuse. I dont care what state you are in. I also heard that you had no charges becuase someone would not press charges, not becuase it didn't happen.

Whats wrong with Jordan Woods? Hes a hard working farmer in Augusta. Jordan & I get work all day get off the job and mind our own. Jordan & I never drink and drive. I am not saying I haven't but I am saying not in a long time. Everyone has herd wrong about me. I am sure its just another person trying to talk about something they no nothing about. I am not mad or negative about our deputy's getting a raise or new cars. In fact I'm glad. They need the tools to perform there job to the best of there ability. But I don't see near as much getting done as I use to.
