I have read that last line OVER & OVER..w/ pay!!! Now that is some bullshit!! Getting caught w/ pills & still getting paid...& he's the sheriff's deputy!!
That's wrong!! Maybe he's getting paid UNTIL they find him guilty then he will no longer be paid. OR maybe he will be paid to sit in jail. It is Rowan County!! Glad I no longer live there!!
I agree that the system is wrong but it is the law in most states not just the Comm of Ky. Unless he quits or is found guilty he will continue to draw his pay...funny thing is that he can not be fired until he is found guilty, innocent or the charges are dropped.

Now that would piss me off BUT you are probably right. Him running around the jail being a trustee, I kinda doubt it since the Marshals are involved. The ppl holding him don't want to appear like they are giving him special privileges do they???
Are Marshalls involved I thought it was the atf and state police.

Honestly if he had not been arrested Jack would have retired is my opinion. Then Roger would have this terms next sheriff. how embarassing would that have been?

for those of you that think jack had anything to do with or knew about what his deputy did are really reaching for something that just isn't there jack or nobody else in the sheriff's office are or were involved with that moron deputy consider how long jack has been sheriff and look at his record and if you have any intelligence you will not be sucked in by this stupid stumppy fuck and you will see jack for the stand up down to earth friendly person that he is

all stumpy and most of the others are wanting is a change. i talked with stumpy and he never said jack or any of those folks were involved. he only stated to us that its time for him to step down. 90% of the county realizes this as well, there is nothing wrong with people thinking it went higher up because it does look bad to some because of holbrook. many dont feel like his the best person for the job due to his age, sickness, and overlooking roger because of being friends.

stumpy even stated that jack had a good run so if you think people are falling for a stumpy THANG your nuts. people thought and were making these comments the day after the bust and elections were not even going on then. hire you someone to out and about undercover LOL and ask the publics view on what they think. they are intitled to an opinion and have their minds as to what they think that does not mean they are correct nor does it mean they are wrong. stumpy never started the rumours and it would have never been a rumour had holbrook never done what he did.
