I really dont think that is a good idea. Rick taught my sons DARE class and told the student he would never write them a ticket. We need a sheriff that will show some authority. I hear on the scanner and he never does anything but say " I will be out at my 83." I think he is scared when it comes down to it. He might be a good teacher, but he is nocs City or St Joe he would be killed because he doesnt have authority. I would like to know the last time he issued a ticket to someone because all i hear is warnings on the radio.

If Rick Sons becomes Sheriff watch out because he will straight up lie to your face and have a smile doing it. He claims to be a good christian man what a joke!! He knows nothing about law enforcement and if you ever talk to him it wont take you long to realize that. So yes he is as stupid as he looks. We already have a Sheriff thats a spineless wonder so we dont need another one!
come on

I'm sure Rick knows nothing about law enforcement. Give me a break. The guy has been invovled in law enforcement for as long as I can remember. I am SURE he knows more than you. I love how somebody posts a situation that is rumored to happen, and the first thing you do is bash the current sheriff and the potential future sheriff. Dennis Martin is a very good person and cares for the community very much. You think yo can do a better job? Run against him...you obviously know more about law enforcement than Dennis or Rick.

Pretty good that you can anonymously call our police men sorry ass liars.. I bet you wouldn't have the guts to say it without the anonymity that your computer gives you.

I am also positive that IF you were in fact serious about your "running against them" that you would clear you schedule to MAKE time to do it and then people could bitch and back bite about YOU as well.

Your comment is vile and patheitc.

Well I for one have a hard time trusting our Sheriff's Office when one of the key narcotics player in the county was brought down then shortly after that his furniture shows up in the Chief Deputy's house, can someone explain that? Michele very well said as for Laughing it sounds like this person likes the fact that no law enforcement at the Sheriff's Office does a dam thing so they must be one of the countys shall we say less than desirable citizens.

Yea well Rick is always scared. Me and boyfriend got into a fight and he hit me. I called 911 and Rick showed up. I was crying and had marks on me but Rick let him go and my boy friend had been drinking too. Rick let him get in the car and leave. Wow

No, I do not work for the county/state/city/ or ANY part of municipal government, I am ONLY a lowly citizen like yourself, however I was raised with respect toward authority and because the CITIZENS ELECTED the current Sherriff into office I will uphold their decisions and keep my vile comments to myself while planning to vote them out of office in the next election. I see no reason to get on Topix and anonymously throw vile hurtful comments around.
Sure, I get pissed off at what is going on like the next guy, but WHAT is it going to help by me getting on here and bitching my head off?
If you (all of us) are so angry with the way things are going then WHY NOT vote them out of office instead of crying about them here?

I agree the best way to show your disapproval is to vote them out. Problem with that is... when was the last time there was a contested candidate even run for the office of Sheriff?

A voter is so right and I could'nt agree more. I'm not really sure of all the facts but the way I understood things was the Sheriff has said several times that he is going to retire and when he does then Sons will run for his spot. I certainly hope that a qualified Officer will step up and run against him. We need a fresh Sheriff's Office! The female Deputy is just too old to be on the street she could not protect herself not alone protect the citizens. This is not a bashing on her but to look at her she is way past her prime and needs to retire. The male Deputy seems to do what needs to be done and I think he does a fine job considering what he has to work with. As for Sons he needs to go out with the old.

The position of Sheriff is one that IS elected. One wishing to run must be a resident of the county, free from ANY felony convictions, resided in the county for at least 1 year, and be "capable of efficient law enforcement". They also must be P.O.S.T. certified currently, or must obtain certification within 6 months of employment.

Dennis Martin has been Sheriff for ages....

I may not agree with every decision that a Chief of Police or County Sheriff makes, but all I know is I would NEVER want their job. I have been training with a local county for a few months now and have seen a glimpse into the life of our sheriff....no sir. Respect them...whether you like them or not. And if you think you can do better...feel free to run for office. We need people who can do the best job possible....for the interest of the citizens.

Why would anyone start a topix by complaining he was pulled over twice by Rick Sons and was never ticketed? Personally if I was pulled over by the same officer twice and didn't get a ticket I do believe I would like the guy!
Rock Port Soldeier(BTW is spelled wrong)do you think you deserved a ticket from the officer each time you were pulled over? I am sure if you would post your real name Rick could accommodate you with a ticket the next time.
right on

I agree with the last few posts. While you may not agree with some actions or decisions made by the current officers, they definatley deserve our respect. They are in thankless positions and I for one do not envy them at all.

I haven't heard this rumor and as you say it may be just a rumor. But no matter, these guys are elected and if you have a gripe then don't vote for them.
And as far as being pulled over and no tickets I'd be thanking my lucky stars. I remember when I was a kid Rick's dad was also a police officer and he was very much respected. I see Rick being allot like his dad. He wasn't out to get you but to see to your safety and others.
