I agree, Sophia has never been this bad, people don't want to drive here in fear of making a simple mistake and getting a ticket for it. But in Sophia, all of you Reap what you sow, you keep putting Danny Barr in as mayor, so you get what you deserve.

If you don't have the brains to know when your rights are being violated and then sue the town of sophia for letting them do it; then you get what you deserve. If a cop pulls you over for no reason and asks you if he can search you or your car, and you say its ok, then he's perfectly within his right's. If he pulls you over for no reason and searches you or your car for no reason, and against your will continues the search without a warrant, then he's violating your right's and is violating the law and could,should and will be arrested and convicted if proven that he/she did this. It's real simple, if you are pulled over more than 2-3 days a month and you never get cited,arrested or...what ever; then you need a lawyer. NOW.... if you are pulled over and have;, no current registration, drivers license or insurance, warrants or vehicular violations ie...safety sticker bad, bald tires, tail light out, then you are in violation of the law and GUILTY. So.... which is it?

Are your right's being violated or are you a criminal? If your not a criminal, then I expect to hear Sophia is losing a police officer soon and will be paying out a big settlement for you!

Good luck !

If police would actually "protect and serve" the community, it would not be so bad. Sophia is doing nothing more than serving tickets for silly reasons. You cannot even blink an eye the wrong way while driving up Indy hill any more without them on your ass. If you were to call themm for a "real" reason, they would either not show up, or they could not handle a situation without county back-up!

Also, I have talked to 2 people that have said they have gotten speeding tickets and the officer will not let them see the radar. It is a LAW that WE as citizens have EVERY right to view the radar if we are caught speeding. I am not sure if they have the right to run a radar in Sophia, b/c and officer told me one time that a town MUST have over 5000 residents in order to run radar. I am not sure if this is true, but coming from an officer--maybe so. Does anyone else know anything about this???--Or where we could find out??

Yea it would be great if they were actually fighting crime, instead they are just writing tickets for nonsense kinda things, Sophia police quit picking on the tax paying citizens and work the actual streets of Sophia... These guys are not real cops, no training, no respect, hell they are barely out of high school... These so called "cops" will gets whats coming to them, just a matter of time now. Little do they know they themselves have bullseyes painted right on their chests!!! lol...

You fell for the biggest trick of the police, intimidation!!! they sucker you into agreeing to the search. JUST SAY NO!!!!!!!!!! And when they start using the "What, are you hiding something?" routine, then say, "No more than you" dare em to bring the dog over and have your car checked. If the dog does a false hit on the car and the cops find nothing, your the winner and every lawyer in town will take your case on consignment!!!: z)
STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHT'S ..........no one else will !
BOYCOTT SOPHIA BUSINESSES

Beckley, WV

#16 Dec 31, 2011
Thats right.. boycott them all, just like I have been doing for years.

I know how the Sophia cops aka pigs will get up on your bumper.. bright light you.. try to intimidate you into speeding. HAHAHAHA I remember SLAMMING my brakes one night on Tams Mt. and you could literally hear the shit squirting out of his ass. Squealing like a little pig. I'll bet you couldn't have got a sheet of paper between our bumpers. He didnt dare hit his blue lights cause he musta known I'd beat his ass right there, AND in court. Was I speeding? Hell no. Actually was 2mph UNDER the posted limit. Drunk? Never drink. Legal? Perfectly in all respects. Sophia cops/thugs suck.

Danny Barr and the rest of the Sophia mafia have ruined the town. NO ONE WANTS TO LIFE IN SOPHIA.

The house values have fallen. You can't sell, even if you try to give it away.. no one wants to live there.

The town voters get what they deserve. Get rid of this bunch of small town crooks. VOTE EM OUT.
Sophia has a reputation .. and its worse than a $2 whore.

These cops are not even trained properly. They have to work in sophia for a year before they go to the academy. They make many many many mistakes!
A ten cent lawyer could own the town if they wanted to. Luck for Sophia, nobody here that has been pulled over and harassed by the police here in Sophia and or illegally search, having their 4th amendment right stepped on; have enough brains to call a lawyer and OWN Sophia!
It would bankrupt the town and end the illegal tactics of these crooks!

I wish that the Sophia police would spend some time at the stop sign at the intersection of Independence road and Midway road. The people coming out of Independence road need to realize that they are supposed to stop. There is going to be a serious accident at that intersection.

There are alot more Sophia cops but they are not as bad as everyone is saying. I got pulled over bc my tail light was out and no i don't have a license (does not mean i am a criminal) for unpaid tickets never had one....the cop was pretty cool about it he could have arrested me but didn't. If you show them respect instead of being a smarta$$ like you run $hit then they are not bad. They know I drive for a reason to go to work or to the grocery or for my kids I don't disrespect them. I just don't have the money to pay my license after getting pulled over several times throughout the years with no license (9yrs) Never took my license serious until I moved to Beckley now its too high to get them but no means I am a criminal sometimes people just don't have the money to pay these crazy tickets they get.....that's poor not criminal buddy
