It's West Frankfort. The truth will never come out. The council and police department are both masters of spin.

The City needs to hire someone from the outside the department. This department needs to be changed for the better.

I heard it was because he had the guts to stand up to the mayor about his brother in laws drunk driving. the mayors brother in law is always high or drunk when he drives. tharp was trying to save lives.

he was removed from the position because he was not a good leader. He didn't set a very good example to his department and he flaunted his personal business, that became disruptive to the department and the city
