What is the world is on Desoto County Sheriff Rasco mind, rocks! I cannot believe Rasco had the nerve to say, " this has nothing to do with politics". Excuse me, I may have been born at night but not last night, just how green and stupid do you think we are Rasco? Rasco was hired in 2007, right after he throws his hat into the ring to run again for the office of Sheriff, he decides to hire Dick Hackett for a part time media director. I guess it has taken from 2007 to sweep all the dirt under the rug. You sure don't want to make the Sheriffs Department to transparent to soon!

What are we paying this part time media director? What type of salary does this position warrent, for what hours and days?

I have known Dick Hackett for many years, sinve the early 1980's in Memphis, I always thought of him to be a very honest man, I just wonder how long he will last in Rasco's court, those Good Ole Mississppi Boys can sure cover their tracks and sing a sweet tune of lies. I just hope that Dick catches on sooner than later and that he does not fall prey to all the lies and de seat within the Sheriff Rasco camp!

Think about it, you will realize I am right!

What in the world was going on in the Hernando area Tuesday evening around 6pm? Seven Desoto County Sheriff cruisers were driving at extreme high speeds traveling east on Byhalia; one after the other. We live on Foxwood Circle and were nearly ran off the road and almost hit head on coming out of our neighborhood. Please advise as to the emergency...nothing has been posted in the news or in the papers.

the right man for the job is james riley; he did more the county than any other sheriff. now i know he was not perfect but 100% better than rasco. at lest my nighbor hood was being patroled and not harressed. instead all i see are deputies parking on the interstate talking. i have not seen a deputy patrol my airea in ?? well you get the point.i think everyone should vote riley back in when nov. comes. people thought the grass was greener on the other side but it was not.

Preacher, I am sorry but I must disagree with you, Riley has out lived his ability to be sheriff, fact of the matter is it has been said that Riley only wants the job so he can let his nephew or some other relative run the sheriff's dept. It is time for Desoto County to step away from the "Good Ole Boy" system and start fresh with new faces, new ideas, honesty, a fresh new look at what needs to be done to improve our county sheriff's dept. Rasco and Riley have both had more than enough chances to prove themselves and they did not......So let's move on to a new and better man for the job, ELECT RONNIE POLLARD FOR DESOTO COUNTY SHERIFF!
wow

Ronnie Pollard is certainly NOT the man that desoto county needs not the and damn sure not naow.GO RILEY..He was the best and still is the best.What nephew do you speak of?And anybody running the dept is better than who is in there now and def.better than Pollard who most people dont even know.

OK, if most people don't know Ronnie Pollard, do you know Ronnie, why are you so sure that he is not the man for the Sheriff's job? Do you not think that the citizens of Desoto County deserve to see what a new man can do in the Sheriff's position? Rasco and Riley both just need to retire!!!!! They have worn out their welcome in the Sheriff's seat!

I tell ya what we'll see what the citizens want in nov but I just dont see it going Pollards way.That is just the opinion of a life long citizen myself .I think former sheriff Riley is most definitely gonna pull it off.We will have to see.

I think the citizens need experience back in the dept.I think Riley did a great job in the 24 years he was there.Rasco lol that was a mistake from day one as all the citizens can see now.I do not know Pollard.I think the citizens have already seen what a new man can do and that new man has done absolutely nothing but try to write tickets and turn the dept into something that it was not established to do.I have hardly ever seen a county car in my area since he took office.

All you have to do is listen to a scanner and you will see whats going on.All I hear from the county frequency anymore is traffic stops.The county dept is to protect and serve NOT write tickets like they are the highway patrol.Our communities need protection and they wont get that as long as county cars are on the interstates and highways performing traffic stops.
wow

As not to sound biased I will look into Pollards experience and background as far as law enforcement goes and get back to you with my opinion.I wil also look into what his plans are to run the dept.

well this is what i know people say they dont want the good ole boy system but what did rasco do, have of his dept now are ex southeaven officers. he say he made changes and named off a number of things like having the first DUI officers but thats not true i was there when the first one was started; and i was there when the first officers started the accident unit. the fact is james riley started them just like the computers that are in the sheirff cars had already been approved before rasco had won. rasco said on a facebook site i saw that he now makes all the officers qalify every six mounths with fireams well thats funny riley did the same when he was there. well this is all i know i wont cars in my nighborhood not on the interstate, and i think riley is the man.
wow

I agree preacher.There was a wreck in my old neighborhood that I was driving through that was caused by excessive speed.Had an officer been in that heighborhood like they were when riley was sheriff that wreck might not have happened.I agree put cars back in the neighborhoods,they are not mhp or city cops they dont even have radar so why patrol the highways and interstate like they do?And I know Riley is the man,he did it for 24 yrs and I know he's the gonna be the best now.
