to begun with how can the boston butt sales go to help pay the officers utility bills? when that was suppost to be going into general funds? NOT to pay your officers utility bills and help them out financially!!! GEEEE....isn't that against the law? what about the GENERAL FUNDS? does the mayor know? are r u paying his bills to?.

I have ignored all the BS on this site until now. Now I would like to set a few things straight. First, Chris since there were only two people present when my daughter was conceived and you was not one of them and I assure you and everyone else that it did not happen that way. That sounds more like your style. For your information, my wife knew about my affair with Lana and the baby because I told her about it. And she was fine with it since she knew I wanted another child and she could not have one. Lana and Kathy were friends until she died. next, you say you were fired because of a dirty car that was not dirty. I guess the two trash bags of garbage remove from behind the front seat of your unit along with a package from the Health Department that had been there for over three months and an incident report that was never turned in is nothing. As for the BBQ money, do you remember the lap top computers, cameras in the units, camera in the offices, first aid kits in all the units, the food and Christmas gifts the Department delivered to over one hundred families to past two years, the travelers the Department has helped with gas, food and lodging, and the officers that have been helped with they needed it because they ran short and needed to keep their utilities on, have you forgotten that you were one of those officers. But I guess paying for your girlfriends divorce, you remember the one that booted you out and went back to her ex-husband even though you were making $24,500 here and driving truck but I quess model airplain, computer games and four wheeler are more important.
As for Layne Mathis, he was one of the best officers I have seen at finding dope. His techniques were too much for a small town like Tuckerman. In a larger city he would have done fine. As for why he was terminated, the council felt he made an error in judgement and they felt he was not the type officer that Tuckerman needed. As for anything else, no charges have been filed and I do not know if any will be.
As for John Davis, since his termination is under appeal, I will not comment. Once the appeal is over I will be glad to fill you in, either here or in person.
If all of you feel I have done such a bad job as chief, go to the Mayor or council and have me removed.

"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me."

Who ever came up with that slogan never dreamed of the internet and what could be said about them on a community blog. They're popping up all over the web and it seems people are flooding the net to post and read them, and some of the posts are down right cruel.

So what do you do when something terrible and untrue has been posted about you on a website?

Private attorney Bill Bristow says you may be able to take them to court.

"If you say something about somebody that is not true and it is damaging to them then they have a private cause of action to go before a jury and ask that a judgement be assessed against you. Because it is intentional and malicious, a jury could award punitive damages to punish that person for saying those things."

But the biggest problem many face when trying to file a lawsuit is the damaging words are posted by someone using anonymous as their username.

KAIT's Internet Producer, Stan Morris explains what happens when you post on a community blog.

"People who are making posts anonymously aren't really guaranteed that it's truly anonymous. The way it works, is that every time someone makes a post on any website it's coupled with a unique IP address, and that IP address is specifically linked to a person, an organization, or a business."

Many times the IP address will be listed on the blog posting. But if it isn't, you'll have to call the internet provider or the administrator to the blog.

"Somebody could require you to get a court order, but in most cases, people will cooperate with law-enforcement, the prosecutor's office, or the Attorney General's office."

And once you have the IP address, tracing it isn't that difficult.

"It's as easy as going to a search engine, typing in IP lookup and then putting in the IP number. When there is only one computer hooked up to a certain internet connection, then it is traced back to the individual."

An individual who thought they were anonymous.

Attorney Bill Bristow says it could mean jail time.

"You could be incarcerated for something you meant as a joke."

He explains that once you find out who posted the comments, there is a procedure to file the law suit, but it is expensive and time consuming.

"Doing something like this is considered intentional by nature, so it is not covered by insurance. Could you collect and the question of do those lawsuits ever get filed, but in theory it could be a substantial lawsuit."

So, if you find out who made the posts, are you willing to pay the money for attorney and court fees? And in the end, no matter how many lawsuits are filed, it appears these community blogs aren't going anywhere.

"It takes 5 seconds to make one, and a month to take it down, so they won't go away. But the best thing for people to do is to not visit these websites."

Something easier said than done.

If you have questions about your legal rights concerning community blogs, contact your attorney.

Ok. I have to respond to Don Blacks Commments since we are all on here having a little fun.
The police car I drove was driven earlier by a well respected officer. I asked if my car was dirty he stated it wasn't
I did how ever pay for a divorce and got screwed I admitt that. I also did drive a truck on my days off part time to pay for all of those things I have. It's called being responible. I also did borrow money. Don Black wrote the check from that illegal BBQ account he admitting to have...
I am human as I said before as for e the commment From Doyle well I know who you are. You really shouldn't be making comments like that should you..
Also there was a copy of a police report in my car that was used for court purpose only again it was a COPY! After all it is a police car it would probally have police related items in it.
As for the solution for the BAC in the car. The UPS driver left it in there. I had no idea it was in it. I exsplained this to Don. The only reason I didn't fight to keep my job was because I was tired of all the drama that was constantly in play at that department.
Now then, I will appolagize for saying what I said about Don and Lana's afair. Honestly it really isn't no ones business. Not even mine.
I now work at Newport PD and I am enjoying alot less drama but, keep in mind I still stand by all my opions about Tuckerman police department and it's chief. I will say something about the Christmas drive it was started by Don and I am grateful for that. But...all of the food and toy's are by donations not the BBQ sales. I am sure that there some of you on this site that has contributed to this Christmas drive. As far as the Lap tops computers, I believed all that was purchased with a block grant that the police department gets every 3 years.
Now then I will say it was nice having all that equipment. A police officer can really use all the extra equipment avalible. The Lap Tops, really served no purpose at the PD. I used my lap top for Internet Crimes Against Children. For real police work.
I promise you there is very few complaints against me at this PD, I feel like I was fired yes fired for some tromped up BS.
It is hard to come up with a bunch of crap on me when in reality I did nothing wrong. It won't take long for those things to come back and haunt you. If I wanted too I could easly sue Don Black, the former Mayor, City of Tuckerman and win. Attorney's don't call you to ask to represent you unless they know you will win.
So far I have not thought about it. Because I really do love this town and the people that are in it.

Um they can only find out who you are if you post from your residence,or if you own the conection. If you use a WiFi hot spot that ip comes from that WiFi spot. If it is tracked it will go right to that spot not your computer. So if you grab signal out of the air, it will only be tracked to where the signal came from.

Ok look Mrs moody no reason on getting worked up over it.
the reason noone puts their names is because they dont want to end up gettin into trouble over something.on here cause we all know the police check this site.

But i have one thing to say Dale Jackson he is an outstanding cop By far.He dont use aggretion when its not needed more than what can be said about most of the other police that was/is on the force.
j.R has an aggretion problem as well he cusses alot and even in Trick's or e-z mart. in front of children that's not settin a great example. I saw him buyin beer from ez-mart the other night i said hello and he just mean mugged me.

Don black he's a horrible chief and should be fired,He CUSSES WAY TO MUCH.He should most deff. grow up.Im not callin him names or anything but i have head him call teenagers names like pricks and shitheads. thats horrible.I myself have been in his office twice. of the times he threatened to take my friend out into a field a beat his ass. Which last time i checked thats threatening. but if we were to say anything to someone else what wouldve happened, nothing.you know why cause he's chief. Im not even goin to lie i do not like him. I have not seen any greatness while him being chief and i dont expect to either.

But the ppl callin the cop's name's. should stop. that will get you nowhere. But in my eyes dale jackson should become chief. I dont know to much about john wayne he seemed like a ok guy to me.

Do any of the police commissioners even have a clue? It seems a little odd that the commission is made of City Council members instead of citizens. The purpose of a " Police Commission " is to establish rules and policies for the Department and investigate complaints made against the Officers or the department in general. Without normal everyday citizens on the commission then the " Commission " should just be called the " City Council ". That would tend to help with the so called " Corruption " that goes along with knowing someone on the City Council or the " Police Commission". The Police Commission should be made up of normal everyday citizens that have nothing to do with the City Structure.

First of all let me tell you,THE REAL STORY! from the one it happenedd to!Hello Citizens it is John Wayne! did anyone read the newspaper? for the real story....it was a chicken breast not a wing. every day i had a chicken breast a roll and a fountain drink. the day at question i was off duty,when the owners daughter charged me $5.97,for my dinner. every day i had been eating the same thing for dinner and had been charged $2.97. when she charged me this $5.97 i asked her was that correct? she stated yes. I then told her I would not pay $5.97 for that again. i could buy a whole chicken for that amount.I said I wouldn't be back in there. Never did the owner say I was banned from the store. Never did I curse anyone. nor,did I ever say anything about persons race religon are creed. Who ever wrote the first comment about this story needs to have their facts straight. this is why all the rumors in Tuckerman, gets blowed out of proportion. my cheif and his wife exsploted me on a gay web site and our police commesioner Mr.Chuck Fortenberry, staited he was going to get to the bottom of the problem, instead he swept it under the carpet. the same way the incident with Beth Hunt. was swept under the carpet. and then, they threated her and fired her. this is what Tuckerman is known for. instead of taken care of the problems.
Lots of things get swept under the rug in this town. Like when Assistant Fire Chief Terry Adams beat up his wife a couple of years ago after the big Dept. party the last night of Hometown Days.
All of the city council people were led to believe that J.R. Moody was not allowed to be in a car by himself,(I guess the council was never in town at night or on the weekends) If the citizens of this town only knew the crap that is gotten away with, the whole city government and Dept. heads would be up on charges

I will not tolerate you trying to drag my name or my family down because of stupid remarks, None of this happened like the way you are spreading and if anyone believes these rumors which are strickly rumors and NOT the truth then so be it but if anyone wants to know the truth on anything I have done or said can come to me personnally and I will be glad to talk to them person to person. It is unreal how someone so low down won't post their real name like I have and defend mine and my family's name that all they want to do is spread dumb things that hasn't got a bit of truth. But thats ok because I know who you are, It's crazy because you want to be something that I am and can't be because of your lifestyle. Keep this up and I will file charges for slander I won't get anything but at least I will have the satisfaction of dragging you through court and then let's see who has done what. All I ask is leave mine and my families name off of this website please and there won't be anything else done or said. Thanks God Bless you and our Country

I don't think you can sue someone for slander if what they say is true. Can you?
