WHO IS THE HONEST ONE

Rainbow City, AL

I've just been told that the Chief of Police is no longer employed with the city. Hobson City didn't want a Chief of Police, they wanted a Thief of Police. If they can't corrupt you they don't need you. It is a sad day for the honest citizen of the city. One have to wonder if it will always be this way. It is said they can't afford to pay the chief or anyone in the police department. I think that's a bunch of bull. If the clerk handles the money they should start with her. There is no reason for them to owe back taxes to the extent of not being able to operate the police department. Why is she not held accountable? They complaine about the crime rate in the city and get rid of the police officer. All the lies told why the two in the police department could'nt be paid will come back to haunt them. A LIAR CAN'T TARY IN THE LORDS EYESIGHT. They might play with GOD, but they will never play HIM. HE IS THE ULTIMATE PLAYER. Running to Church will not help. The devil goes to church every Sunday also. GOD WILL TAKE CARE OF THEM. This You Can Take To The Bank. The money might no make it to the bank, but you can believe GOD will.

It'sad that after all these years, Hobson City has resulted to what it is now. I hate the fact that there are no police there. I can't believe the laundrymat no longer exist. I had so much fun growing up there and now it brings tears to my eyes to see and hear what is going on there now. I understand the corruption in the Police dept started a long time ago. I can witness to some inappropriate behavior by a couple previous officer myself.

Hobson City is drug and hiv infested. People are selling drugs on Morgan St., Mcdaniel st., on "the ditch" know as wilkinson dr.,Jones hill and all over. Why haven't the sheriff done something? Its because they don't care. They are just waiting on all the black folks to kill themselves. I hate to seen my kids to the neighbor store by themselves. Not only is the store extremely high but the druggies are on every corner.

Drugs are on every corner. The old folks are scared to sit on their own porch. Although there is no police where is the Sheriff?

It is sad, this is a proud city with a great history. I know of a few good officers who have come through there and they all moved on because the city couldn't offer what other departments around could (insurance and retirement). I wish all of the citizens of this town the best. One of the best memories of my carrer in law enforcement was standing in the Calhoun County Courthouse a few months after I had left to go to a larger department. A citizen from Hobson City saw me outside the grand jury area and we spoke. She told me how things were going and said "We all miss you down there, when you were working we all knew we'd be safe. The drug dealers weren't standing in the streets blocking traffic and if we called the police we knew you'd come. It's not like that since your gone." She then gave me a hug and we went our own ways. I have often wished I had stuck it out in hopes things would get better for the officers and the citizens.

Wow everything is so true that everyone is saying. Allow me to introduce myself, some may remember me, I was the first female to join the HPD and boy was it quite an experience. Now I look back years later and when I visit the family members who reside in Anniston Al I always go and ride through the city and I'm not afraid to stop because most of them have not forgotten me, and I will never forget the citizens of Hobson City, sometimes they were my only backup. There were days when I was the only one on duty and my back up was a person who may have been on drugs but because I yet treated them with respect they didnt hesitate to say, "you alright you need some help, you know we got your back>" I was there when Mayor Snow God bless her, may she rest in peace stated, " there was no money and we would not be getting paid for all the overtime we had worked," smile sad time back then especially when we were only making 6.56 hour and having to support yourself and two children, but the whole experience made me stronger and wiser. I am still in Law Enforcement and I'm back in NC where I make a very Healthy salary per year and I owe most of my learning experience to Hobson City. I am also a Pastor of a small outreach ministry here in NC and my brother in law and my sister who lives in Anniston have an Outreach Ministry, one of my dreams is to come and do a street ministry in the City, and let them know there is yet HOPE, and I hope that dream comes true soon. If anyone who read this would like to contact me for any reason please feel free to email me at ormondbathsheba@yahoo.com And oh I use to alway ride by the church on the hill and I said one day I am gonna preach in that church so if anyone can help make that happen please contact me it would truly be a blessing smile God Bless You all and lets keep Praying for the Change
