Why all the negativity?

We recently relocated to Seymour from Florida. Prior to our relocation, we searched for a site that would help us get to know our new community. It saddens me to have stumbled upon a site that gives new meaning to the phrase, "Small town gossip!" If you would take a few minutes of your time and reread each posting, objectively, you too can experience what a newcomer to Seymour, experiences. We moved here in December and the snow began. Being from Florida this became a huge problem. You might be asking why? I have two athletic sons that are used to being outside playing football, basketball or riding their dirt bike. It would have been nice to learn that there was a gym and an indoor track at the local church. Where we come from churches do not have gyms, our children didn't need indoor facilities to stay active. For those of you that continue to bash one person, I wish you had spent one ounce of that time giving positive information about our community. After all, you never know how the world, or a new neighbor will view this information. I would like to leave you with a few things to ponder. Do you really think that bashing someone on the Internet changes or has political pool with the people who read it? I sure hope not because that would mean a faceless being easily influences me.

I sure wish you'd have found the site: www.seviercorruption.com before you'd moved here. Corruption is the norm here. Who you know or what you know on them is the real currency here in Sevier County. Here's the continuing story of a good man ruined by a corrupt small town "Boss Hogg" system.
We at Seviercorruption.com as well as the voters of this county have heard the story of James Russell Kitts and are in disbelief. Kitts, a highly respected Seymour man and employee of UPS, was wrongfully arrested on felony drug trafficking charges by Low Sheriff Seals in a political move to brandish free attention. Steals hoped that the move would prove positive. In conjunction with the Fourth Judicial Drug Task Force which is comprised of some of Sheriff "I'll arrest anyone for a vote" Seals incompetent officers who answer to Attorney General Jimmy Dumb Done arrested the man and had the story all laid out to name him a Drug Kingpin before the August Election. Wonder what rather high profile citizen the Low Sheriff will drum UPS charges on now. Remember what he did to Vince Trotter in December? He was cleared of all wrongdoing but Hossie got his free publicity on that FALSE ARREST TOO!
This task force gained notoriety when one of their own, Mark Schultz, was charged with stealing money from their lock-up. Fine bunch there Hossie! Also, under the direction of Al "Your wife looks sooo good!" Schmutzer, Jr., the task force was headed up by John Evans whose son Matt was the coach at Gatlinburg-Pittman who was arrested on drug possession charges. General Dunn allowed the younger Evans to have a diversion rather than a trial and Dr. Jackie Parton transferred him to the Alternative Learning Center rather than fire him. Shortly thereafter, Evans left the task force, but where did ALL those guns go that were confiscated?? Did Sheriff "Love your gun" STeals get into the locker? Or were they a retirement present from Al "I never met a young woman I didn't like" Schmutzer?

This leads us to Kitts' attorney making the statement that "Sheriff Ron Seals was very instrumental" to the Mountain Press. How was he instrumental? Did the man not get locked up in Sheriff Homie Seals' Brokeback jail for twenty hours BY SEAL OWN PEOPLE?? Was Sheriff Sticky Fingers "instrumental" in getting him arrested or maybe not allowing his Homie helpers from sexually assaulting the man? Sheriff Fat Boy had nothing to do with some judge (who evidently heard through the grapevine that once again Seals' men had shown their incompetence) reducing the man's bond? Don't think so. Was Sheriff Homie Hoss "instrumental" in getting the charges dropped against Kitts FIVE DAYS LATER?? Guess General Jimmy Dumb Done was responsible for this one to try to help Waters and our fine Judges keep their pet Sheriff out of the paper. How did that work out for you General? Here Hossie, go FETCH!
You have definitely made your predecessor proud with your incompetence Steals. The General seems to be forgetting about Paul Lintner and his male rape of prisoners in Homie Hossies Hotel, and is harassing everyone in sight to make our Sheriff look like he is doing his job. Sorry.
To Seviercorruption.com , this case is eerily similar to a false arrest a few years ago in which a Sevier County resident also retained the services of Bryan Delius. The man watched as Delius was twice forced to subpoena false police reports from Ron "I arrest anyone" Seals and later told his client that he had "several officers worried about their jobs". As the man found out, Delius is an attorney for the Police Benevolent Association. PBA, who pays him to defend law enforcement officers who get into trouble. In a discussion with the attorney, the man recorded the conversation during which time Delius discussed the officers involved ( JJ Breeden, Kyle Loveday, Justin Clabo, Ray Davis and others) and told his client that the officers were "friggin" the two young ladies who had obtained a warrant from Magistrate Craig "Roll me one and I'll swear to anything" McCarter. A Knoxville private detective, Tom Ham, was hired by the client on Delius' insistence although his work was useless. The most interesting episode with Ham is the recording in which he calls the Sevier county sheriff's department, Judges, and District Attorney "crooked f__ckers". Recordings are priceless. Bryan Delius reported to his client that Bailiff and Sheriff's officer Paul Rolen had spread serious, untrue rumors about him within the court house. Delius refused to do anything about this and the man was able to get Rolen to admit he and TWRA Officer Curt Henderson had indeed spread the tales.
Cousin Judge County Attorney Jerry McCarter has said that it don't matter what people say about you, when your a pubic figure (and the fine Cuz says anyone who comes out of the house is a public figure) you can expect that public officials will make up lies on you or anyone if you try to stand up for evenhanded enforcement of the law.
During a hearing before Judge Rex "Have you seen my meds?" Ogle, former District Attorney Al "I'll run over anyone, leave the scene and get by with it" Schmutzer, Jr., along with ADA Jeremy Ball fabricated a witness against the man and were caught in their deceit. Delius had refused to investigate the witness and talked his client into a ten-day house arrest which he and Schmutzer allowed to continue for SEVENTY-FIVE DAYS at the man's expense. Part of Judge Stokes' private probation practices we're told. Stokes gets kickbacks and the more days the man is on house arrest the more the Judges private probation money grows. The accused later hired a competent private investigator and low and behold Schmutzer had LIED! Judge Ogle was notified in writing that his court had been lied to, but refused to take action. Wonder if that has resulted in any complaints being filed?

Judge Ogle was notified in writing that his court had been lied to, but refused to take action. Wonder if that has resulted in any complaints being filed?
The outcome of nearly three years fighting a case against liars, the man took a judicial diversion and was placed on two years un-supervised probation. The court also got a restraining order against the man for all Sevier county law enforcement officers and their families in order to keep officers from giving him information on Hossie's illegal activities to pass on to federal investigators. Imagine that, restrained from having contact with Hossie's idiot harassers? Peace at last.
The story ends with Tennessee Supreme Court Board of Professional Responsibility complaints against Delius, Schmutzer, and Ball. Delius, rather than face a hearing, took a diversion (probation) and was forced to complete additional ethics classes. The complaints against Schmutzer and Ball are still pending due to Judge Rex Ogle's refusal to act on the matter of their lies to his court. This has earned Ogle a complaint with the Court of the Judiciary and is now pending.
So beware. If you are falsely accused by the idiots within our justice system and are unable to spend your life-savings or not willing to expose their wrong-doings, you may be in jail for a long time. As for the man in the story, he is having the time of his life! How did that work out for you Hossie?? Do you still have Loveday and Clabo, or just the ulcers caused by your covering up for these incompetent officers? We LOVE politics, don't you Hossie?!

While I respect your thoughts, this site isn't designed specifically for people moving into the area. In fact, I'd say roughly 90% of the people that read and contribute to this Seymour page live here or have ties to the area. With that said, while we'd be happy to answer questions about gyms, places to live, cable providers, etc (and which if you'll read back farther, people have done regularly), we're not going to randomly post that kind of info, b/c like I said - we live here, we know. So, while I hate that your sons didn't have anywhere to play for a few days, I don't really see that as a reason to criticize an entire population, because after all, you didn't ask. Also, while I'm not entirely sure which person you're talking about as being bashed, I can narrow it down to a couple, and I assure you that Seymour - like any other town - has it's problems and its politics. And while such online rants may have no tangible end result, sometimes frustrated people simply need an outlet in which to vent and be heard by others with similar frustrations and concerns. Being assured you're not alone is one of the basic human needs, and somehow, this website has served to meet that purpose, so take it for what it is. As far as being faceless, you will learn quickly that for some, there could be serious repercussions for speaking their mind candidly with their name attached. It's a shame that it has to be that way, and that it's gotten so negative, but it's the people of Seymour speaking, so you can't really fault them for saying what they feel. And while you can't believe everything you read, the fact the MANY people feel the need to take the internet to rant and rave about the same 2 or 3 people in Seymour is a bit of advice to newcomers in itself. You have the advantage of knowing up front 2 or 3 people who will use and manipulate you if they get the chance, so you know who to watch out for. Oh, and since I know you're new, if case you like Japanese food, the steakhouse in the Kroger shopping center is delicious, and since you're sons are active, you might want to get them memberships to the Rush - it's open 24 hours and has all sorts of indoor fitness activities.(and as far as the last 3 posts, don't worry, no one actually reads or believes that site) Welcome to TN.

Your boys can take up jogging. You can have an affair. You have to be observant and pick your activities from those locally available.
My boys are into sports. My wife is into hiking. I'm into my new neighbor whos husband leaves her at home while he's out drinking at Daniels. She confessed to me she'd had her first orgasm last month at age 31. I'm just glad I could be a help.
