They already made a movie about it... it's called Walking Tall. The rest of the movie has yet to play out but just give Lance a four foot hickory club and you will have yourself a remake of that classic movie. Buford Pusser for Sheriff 2014...

Please can someone else run. I am tired of how you Wilson bandwagon people are trying to make him out like he is Jesus, who walks on water. He might be a great guy,but you people act like you are brainwashed like a Jim Jones supporter.

You're the only one on here constantly using the reference to Jesus when talking about Lance, this makes me think that you are taking the descriptions and opinions people provide of Lance and making the comparison in your own mind of Jesus and Lance... in short you must actually think of Lance as Jesus in your subconscious. Well enough psychology 101 and back to the issue at hand, this is a free country and with that being said you are more than free to throw your hat in the ring after all you are the one always crying for someone else to run so by all means be that someone. If you dont like the choices then go ahead and jump in the fire sparky.

I am not going to get into the whole bandwagon or Jim Jones comment as it does not warrant an intelligent response... I am pretty sure it would be wasted on you besides I have Kool Aid to mix... want some?

Ghost deputy why do you use the name deputy? You are not a deputy! you probably have either been fired by Jones, or have not ever been hired there, due to your low functioning intelligence. So go ahead and take that little fake plastic badge that you bought in the toy section of Walmart off, and quit trying to pretend to be something you are not, Sparky!

Hey want to make a bet about that. I find it ironic that you would accuse someone of having "low functioning intelligence" when all the comeback you have is to "attempt" to insult someone. The only reason you have a job is due to your lack of a gag reflex and the ability to cut others throats on the job without losing sleep... both are requirements to work for Jones and stay there. Some people have principles and integrity. I know that is a foreign concept to you but you will soon learn.

I'll tell you what... I will give you my fake plastic toy shop badge to play with as you walk out the door for the last time. I even have some stickers that say Jr. Police you can have.

Blacklog you still shooting off at the mouth I see. I guess that jealousy over lance is enough to make you put up with your current boss. I can understand though as you have invested a tremendous amount of butt licking in with jones. Maybe when sheriff jim jones gets beaten like a dog in the election you and the other mental midgets will all do us a favor and have a going away party with some of his special kool aid.

It's a free election system, maybe you should run. One thing about Lance is the fact they are no skeletons in the closet he has to defend unlike the incumbent.. For Lance not to have officially announced yet I am amazed by the amount of support behind him already including businesses, churches and even current CCSD staff..gonna be interesting.:)

I would love to see change happen there, but with the voter base we have here I really don't think it will happen. Don't get me wrong I'm not trying to rain on your parade in any way but after the last primary with all that Brackett brought to the table I just couldn't believe he was defeated so soundly. I hate it but it kind of looks like we are stuck with Jones as long as he wants the job. Sometimes I think the IQ of most voters in this county is in the single digits.

I agree, it will not be an easy feat. The voter base here tends to be less informed than most. They tend to vote based on party lines and name recognition. Turn out is very low as well in off year election cycles, last time less than 6000 votes were cast in the primary. I think more people are aware of issues this time however translating that into votes is still a challenge.

Yeah boy, that didn't cost the taxpayers of this county but a couple million the last time it was done and you can look at what we got now and see just how good it worked.

It may have cost us a lot of money but that time it was for the wrong reasons and the people that were put in place were worse than the ones they replaced. We have to clean house, we have no other option. Its like a cancer, if you dont remove all of it then it will continue to sicken that department and basically undermine any good done by a new Sheriff. I know it will cost money but I think it will be a good investment as opposed to keeping the tainted officers and little by little costing us money as they do now. Maybe some of the ones that have only recently came there and those that have tried to stay low can be kept, they may not be tainted.

That was exactly what I was referring to before one of the topix troll squad reared it's ugly head. When Roger Hutchings was defeated by Gary Clark in 2002 he did away with almost all of the officers that held any rank and a whole lot of deputy's that held hardly any rank at all and almost all of the ones he kept were stripped of whatever rank they has and their salary reduced accordingly. That was the start of this current administration. I can't remember the exact figure but it cost well over a million dollars in severance pay. The Sheriffs department has never fully recovered from this and in opinion doing the same thing again and expecting different results would be a very foolish move. Until you take away the Sheriffs option to fire a deputy without cause you are always going to have these same problems there. There is no recourse for an officer except to do whatever the Sheriff wants done or lose his job no reason has to be given as he serves at the discretion of the Sheriff he has the same powers as a dictator or a king. No law enforcement agency should ever be set up this way period. It breeds paranoia and distrust between employees living in a constant fear of losing their jobs for little or no reason at all. The last thing they want to do is "rock the boat" or call into question if what they are told to do is the right way or the best way to handle any task they preform. I am not trying to argue with you I am just expressing my heart felt opinions on this.

I hope the Sheriff in Alexander County comes to visit you. Yeah Jeff we will just elect a couple dozen Sheriffs over here to help protect spoon, dont worry. Btw do you think spoon knows where to find the number 11 on the phone so she can dial 911.
