The fact if the matter is the police in TC are a joke. They along with the Cheif are currupt. This is what happens when you have people who are not qualified for the job and uneducated. They run things off the good ole boy system and and if your not one of the good ole boys like Russell Thornton then you are just screwed. The Cheif of police doesn't back his officers he allows the town and the city council to run his police department which all in all they are not qualified to make any decisions at all. Aslong as TC continues to not take care of their police officers y'all will always have different officers.

Lets talk about how many DUIs Russell Thornton is really suppose to have ? How did all that get swept under the rug. I wonder if the great mayor Greenway knows about all that I think he does and hasn't done anything about it. I wonder if he approves of this kind of behavior.

Well the reason they all left is cause the false promises of full time employment the crappy pay and the lack of equipment needed to do their job properly

my goodness! this is a big mess. TCPD really need to get their act together. but my question is this? why did it take an officer or city official to shoot the dog before the city would get them what they need. i mean seriously shouldnt the city have already got the officers and city officials the proper training and equipment needed to do their job. why wait until an animal is dead and for a video to leak out before you help the city..thought mayors were suppose to help the city and clean it up not cover up incidents and wait to do or say anything because there is a camera in your face!!

I want justice and I want these people to pay for the inhumane treatment of this puppy. I have written the dept. of Agriculture, senators and congressmen to investigate the actions of Twin city and the mayor. I will continue to write people concerning this matter until some justice is served. jail time, fines and termination. THERE WILL BE NO CHANGE UNTIL YOU MAKE IT HAPPEN.!

This is so true but the fact remains it takes more than one person to stand up these are the people the people of twin city elect. Lets look at past employees and citizens of the city who have been screwed over by the city.

I would hope that they are charged with animal cruelty, there was absolutely no reason to pepper spray a puppy and then shoot it while it was rubbing its face in the grass!!! I can tell you, if this is how they treat animals, people will look elsewhere to live and your city will just continue to go downhill.

Look at the uneducated, no common sense people that run the city. And what kills me is everybody complains about it but is not willing to do what it takes to make the change.
