Did you people know that if the kids have been around someone smoking or making the stuff that the teachers at the school can smell this stuff? They are like Pigpen on Peanuts searies, it is like a cloud especially when the heat is on or if it is a hot day. I wonder if they document that and then pass on the info to the Sheriff? Aren't they supposed to report if they think a child is indanger? Go figure.

I dont know where you heard that but but that is perhaps the stupidest thing ive ever heard. Seriously ! Where the hell do you get this shit? PigPen from the Peanuts series ? HA thats HILARIOUS SIR !!!! Ok either you smoke a lot of weed and watch cartoons or youve been watching FOX news channel. Look around at the ignorance. Its all around us. Dont you know your going to ruin some poor kid who's family uses Kerosene heat to be temporarily removed from his or her parents into some unusually strict foster home pending an investigation by DCS. Meanwhile little jimmy is being fondled every night by a 300 pound black woman named Gertrude who cant stand little white kids who smell like kerosene. Mean while Mrs Gonce his first grade teacher can give her self a big old pat on the back for keeping little jimmy safe from the horrors of meth.

Why does it have to be a 300 pound black woman? Y'all are so simple! Let me guess ..Mrs. Gonce is a white woman? Could it be possible that it COULD be other way around?

I was one of those indicted on conspiracy to manufacture in this case. by the way its 13 now. Quite frankly it has been one big he said she said and there's actually no physical evidence what so ever. They say that we all conspired to make over 300 grams of meth but to this date they have never actually produced any of the 300 grams allegedly produced. Youd think out of all the people charged that at least one person would be found with some but no. Basically what happened is this one girl, i wont name names but you know who you are if youre reading this, got in trouble totally un drug related and was sentenced to do time and to try and get out early told a bunch of half truths and whole lies. The main one they were after she had actually never dealt with or even knew personally but had a lot of mutual friends. Aparently he thought she was a snitch and didnt want her at his house. Well he was right to think that because what she did was just take a little of what she heard from a few folks and threw it all together and basically i was indicted on hearsay which the investigator knew to be false any way. I have never purchased any pseudo ephedrine for the purpose of making drugs and i am totally innocent of these charges. I admit im by no means no angel and smoked my share of weed back iyn the day however i have never had any charges related to anything like this and before this have never even been charged with a felony or anything of that sort. TO this date i have still not even been arraigned in this case. You know i used to at least have some faith that if i was innocent of something surely they wouldnt pursue a conviction but now since i have spoken out against the Marion county justice system i have become as they say, one of three they want the most. There are more things that i could post on here that would shock and appal most of you people reading this but i just can't right now. They are trying to find every little reason to put most of us involved in this case in jail until they decide they have enough evidence to take it to trial. they have already taken down an earlier post on this thread that i posted so if by chance you caught it then you still dont even know the half of it. I swear i didnt think things like this could go on in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. i thought we had constitutional rights but apparently things work differently in this county. I must say though there is one judge and you know who you are whom i have tremendous respect for and feel that he is a very fair man. I would just like to say thank you to him for doing his job and upholding real justice in the face of such corruption and greed. There is something to be said about a county though when they have basically made an industry out of imprisoning its less fortunate and less intelligent residents. Please if anyone out there knows any way to help fight this corrupt system we have here please let me know. Just think. Next time it could be you or your wife or son or daughterbeing sucked into this trap of so called justice. I KNOW THAT EVERY ONE OF YOU HAVE BEEN OR KNOW SOMEBODY WHO'S RIGHTS HAVE BEEN VIOLATED JUST AS MINE HAS. HOPEFULLY THEY WONT TAKE THIS POST DOWN LIKE THE LAST ONE. IN THE FUTURE I WILL POST MORE BUT FOR NOW THIS IS AS MUCH AS I FEEL COMFORTABLE ACKNOWLEDGING.

I can see your intelligent, just enough to twist the truth. Children are not pulled from a home until they are proven in danger. Hair can really tell a story and a whiz test will too. If they are around it in any way it is absorbed into the body, so if you are really worried about the children, you should be worried about those exposed to this stuff. All you have to do is watch channel 9 news: it was after all, the smell that alerted a county cop this past week to a lab. You know it leads me think that with all the meth education the officers get today that those around here are either idiots, cowards or criminals. That's the only conclusion I can get for not busting more people, perhaps people like you. All drug pushers are not junkies, they know better. If that applies then, HA, if not Sorry, but not so much.

Please Ilikesit you are a complete moron! They would not just arrest you for a 20 month investigation if they did not have any thing on you. All drug addicts are delusional and you my friend certainly are, Tennessee is the #1 state in our nation that has an over abundance of Meth labs and with the help from the Tennessee Meth Lab Task Force they will bring you all down. so just quit with your self pitty ways and accept it ,your a drug addict and hopefully will spend some time in prison and think about it before you ruin some childs life in the future.

House From Hell: Buyers' Nightmare Homes

By JIM AVILA (@JimAvilaABC), ERIC M. STRAUSS (@ericmstrauss) and JENNIFER ABBEY
March 8, 2013

The Hankins family had been saving for five years when they saw a starter home for sale for only $35,000.
They jumped at the chance and purchased the home in the foothills of southern Oregon's Cascade Mountains.
"One of my favorite memories was painting Ezra's room green, and he wanted to help so he helped dad," Jonathan Hankins told ABC News. "This is our home, this is great. It seemed too good to be true."
The house was a foreclosure advertised "as is." The Hankinses took out a loan instead of a mortgage and had a carpenter friend check it out instead of spending money on an inspector.
"We knew there were a couple of broken windows. We knew the furnace was probably on its way out," Hankins said. "Overall, the house had great bones. Little did we know that those bones would be contaminated and poisonous."
After weeks of sanding, priming, plumbing and painting, Hankins started getting dry mouth, nose bleeds and sinus headaches, and the house had a strong urine odor. Their dream house appeared to be making them sick.
Turns out the little starter had a secret past. It was once used as a meth den, and all the dangerous chemicals had seeped into the floors and ceiling.
"We ordered a test kit which only cost us $50," Hankins said. "The results came back at nearly 80 times our state's lowest level of contamination."
It's been seen before on the AMC drama "Breaking Bad." The hit show follows meth dealers who use a super lab with ventilation. But in the real world, "home cooking" all those dangerous chemicals leaves behind such high levels of poison, you have to put on hazmat suits to conduct a standard test.
Months later, the meth residue was still there.
"Contractors that specialize in clandestine meth lab clean-up have quoted us costs that are more than what the house is even worth," Hankins said.
Lawyers told them to walk away quietly because it's only illegal to sell a house with a problem if you know there is a problem.
"It's horrifying," Hankins said. "It's like a nightmare, you know, a home buyer's nightmare."
The Hankinses said the seller, Freddie Mac, should have known about the danger and that meth residue should require a warning, like lead paint and asbestos.
"It's very easy for them to come in and say,'Well, we didn't live there, so we have no knowledge of it," Hankins said. "They didn't know some of those homes may be contaminated.
"The Hankins chose to forgo a home inspection or any other environmental test and bought the home in 'as is' condition," Freddie Mac said in a statement to ABC News. "We empathize with the Hankins [family] but neither we nor the listing agent had prior information about the home's history."
Real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran said buyers can't depend on the government, their leader or the seller to warn them.
"All Jonathan and Beth had to do was talk to the neighbor before they bought that house," she said. "Every neighbor who's next door to a meth house knows what's going on. They see the cops coming in. Or you could go the police station, talk to the police."
Freddie Mac may have not known what was in the house, but the local police department did. Officers went to the home 34 times while the previous owner lived there.
"We've been to this house several times," Chief Jim Hunter said. "We made undercover narcotics buys on at least three occasions.

Meth lab found, deputy went to wrong house

Posted: Feb 28, 2013 3:10 AM CST

ATHENS, Tenn.(AP)- A sheriff's deputy who went to the wrong house to settle a domestic dispute collared drug suspects instead.
The Daily Post Athenian reported the McMinn County officer answered a domestic call in Englewood but mistakenly went to a home four houses away.
Deputy Guy McGill said he caught a strong chemical smell as he got out of his car Saturday evening. Another deputy was sent to take the domestic report, and McGill searched the house where he went, finding an active methamphetamine lab in a bedroom.
Four adults and a 10-year-old boy were in the house.
The adults were charged with manufacturing meth and child endangerment.
