Resigning does point the finger in his direction, But as you know there is always three sides to very story. His, Hers, and the Truth. He was probably told to resign but act like it was of his own free will. And as you know you can file harassment on someone for just complimenting them. itís a shame really but the truth.
Yes I agree Betty. If he truly did this then he needs to be reprimanded to the fullest extent of the law like anyone else. I myself believe the term *lead by example* therefore no one is beyond the arms of the law.

Would you resign if you were innocent??? Not just no but hell no. Hes guilty. Hes trying to keep from going to jail. Everyone knows he would never step down on his own. He likes it up there on his pedestal so much so he can look down on everyone else. Its about time he got knocked down a notch or two. I hope he thinks of everyone he hurt on his way down. He probably wont he has no conscience.

blount county says they dont have the money to fix the roads but yet they have the money to buy a dodge charger for lt.neil.now you tell me if thats fair.we paid for this car.we pay tax money everytime we buy something in this county or pay our bills so why do we not get to vote on how the money is spent.i take it personnel when stuff like this happens.i dont have the money to ride around in a brand new car,so why do they.i work everyday never miss not even if i am sick.i think more of us should rally together to get our sheriffs department cleaned out of the scum that is working there and using our tax money as a bank or atm.we dont get to but they do.

another thing i have some questions if anyone would care to answer them for me.1 how many officers at the jail could pass the physical required to be a correctional officer? 2 how is it some didnt have to pass this physical to become lts.? 3 why do some get new cars but some like captain kent does not,has he not been there years longer than lt.neil?4 how did she work herself up so fast,you know she cant pass any physical? 4 how many more people work there that are worse scum buckets than the sheriff was.lol so to all that have answers for this please feel free to respond.i am sick of people who are crooks always being on top when people like me have to actually get out and work for a living.this is unfair not only to me but all the other people in this county who have less than what i have i am very lucky to be married to a man who does help ,but some are not as lucky,so lets all stand as one on this and clean it out for good.tammy i really hope to see you at jacks drive thru working one day and soon,as for the rest over there your turn will be coming!

In this case there is 2 sides of the story ... His lying side ... her truthful side. He totally did this. When he was taking training class they thought he was doing some weird stuff in the bathroom ... no one could actually figure it out ... but he was acting very weird. I guess it all comes out in the wash.

You can order custom made bumper stickers on the Internet. Just Google it. I think losing his job was a pretty big punishment ... but he doesn't really mind that pension will take good care of him. Plus he can put in a phony disability claim like most cops due and really get paid.
