You MUST be out of your Mind IF you think Lee Foster wont be re elected each & every time he puts his name on the ballet.He is a Great Sheriff & no matter who should decide to run agaist him would be wasting thier time !! He has My Vote !
The only reason Sheriff Lee Foster keeps getting reelected is because no one has run against him. Too bad there is not an alternative such as a vote of no confidence. I have found no one that thinks much of Sheriff Foster. Even the County Council will not give his department any more funds. Sheriff Foster is currently working out of a trailer because the residents have had it with him. They don't want to see any more of their money going to this glorified redeneck.

I am totally against police chases anywhere. The chase in Newberry came from Prosperity through Newberry's on Highway 76 which is the most busiest part of Newberry. I can not believe a law officer in his right mind would chase someone through that area. This area has children hanging out at the fast food businesses during that time.

Well said! Our so called sheriff has done some terrible things he wants to hide. So he tries to keep his name on TV so no one will remember.And WLTX knows no better. Just ask any county employee.
WHY can he not work in mold for 8 hours when there are families in this county that live in it 24 hours?
WHY does he let the Newberry Observer come in his office and look at the incident reports so they can put what ever they want in the news?

ABOUT LEE FOSTER

I just hope he has the balls to step down. Before everyone really gets to know him. He is not liked in this county aaanymore. Too money hungry. And no we don't vote him more money.

PLEASE SOMEONE ELSE RUN AGAINST HIM!

OK...let me get this straight...You are totally against police chases, but you aren't against IDIOTS driving like they have NO SENSE through a busy intersection....Wow, that is well thought out...
Police officers are only doing THEIR jobs to protect you AND others on the road....
And one more thing...I can honestly say I have NEVER seen anyone just hanging out in the MIDDLE of an INTERSECTION...maybe that's why they need to look both ways before crossing the road...Evidently the people who are driving like they have NO SENSE did not get the MEMO that there are children in that area, and are MORE ikely to cause an accident, because I am almost positive that they haven't completed a "how to lead a police officer SAFELY on a high speed chase without hurting anyone driving course" - Maybe the best thing for you to do is to put your brain into motion before typing something so ridiculous.
you aint never been through a black neighborhood have you they always in the dam road i think the parents teach this because when you have a hard time avoiding them they look at you all mean, and all they have to do is step over just a little but they want you to hit them so they can get another check.

OK. I KNOW YOU DID NOT GO THERE! Well said my A$$.
First of all - The sheriff keeps getting reelected because he does a DAMN GOOD JOB, and you can end your search for someone who "thinks much" of the sheriff right here. I PERSONALLY HAVE NOTHING BUT GREAT THINGS TO SAY ABOUT LEE FOSTER.
The sheriff doesn't bring attention to himself the CRIME COMMITING NUTS who live in Newberry County do that for him/us.
I have very close friends who work for the SHERIFF'S OFFICE and I hate to inform you, but THEY ARE ALL VERY HAPPY TO BE WORKING FOR SUCH A GREAT PERSON AND LEADER.
You ask WHY he can't work in MOLD for 8 hours...are you kidding me. Umm...maybe it isn't safe, and why should HE or ANY OF HIS EMPLOYEES and THIER FAMILIES BE SUBJECTED TO SOMETHING THAT IS BEYOND THEIR CONTROL. UMMM...DO YOUR RESEARCH THE SHERIFF DIDN'T BUILD THE "MOLD HOLE"...I do believe that would be someone who is NOW on the COUNTY COUNCIL...oops...
As far as the families who live in it 24 hours...it is simple...GET OFF YOUR A$$, FIND A JOB AND FIX IT...
FOR YOUR INFO - THE POLICE REPORTS FILED ARE ALL PUBLIC RECORD YOU IDIOT!
Would you care to talk about the smiley and frowny faces that were being put on tickets? SLED had the magistrates removed for reasonable cause. The Sheriff needs to be removed also. But, I guess it is that fraternal order of police thing gets the Sheriff's office conduct swept under the rug.

The Newberry County Sheriff's office could fall off the face of the earth and no one would notice the difference.

Mike Horne? You got to be kidding me. Why did he leave the patrol so quickly? If he really retired do we want a retired person to be our sheriff?

Last night Sheriff Foster came out to help at that wreck on I 26 and stayed out until the last emergency vehicle left.

Would Horne leave his lake house to be with his people and the other responders?

Sheriff Foster has great people that are dedicated and work hard. I think most people know that.

As far as them falling off the face of the earth, you probably would not miss them because it sounds like they either have caught you, fired you or know what you are up to. Or you have a political agenda. Or you would not qualify to work for their office.

Either way, you obviously hate someone that really cares about his job and the people of Newberry County.

You know there are people that want to control things and you must be one but don't have the fortitude or the drive to do it. So you tear up those that really have the ability and the desire to do the right thing.

I think I know this man and he does a good job of leading. What have you done for your fellow man lately besides sitting in front of a computer and spewing false statements and inuindo. You can certainly tell when it is political season and the hacks come crawling out.

Anyway, this was a topic about the chase. They did what they had to do to stop a maniac from killing someone. It is easy to second guess by listening to a scanner or listening to water cooler talk. Unless you have been there and done what the police officers do, then just keep your thoughts to yourself.

I suppose you know how to coach better than Spurrier or Bowden and can cure a disease or bring about world peace.

Come on now.
