I'm waiting to see who will be picking up the bill for these unfortunate medical expenses & if there will be a formal reprimand from the County, with respect to Mr. Blevin's probation stipulations. This county is a pressure cooker!!

My question for you is, Would you stand there and let someone slit
your throat... I think not... Mark was laying in wait at the store
for Butch. If butch knew there was going to be trouble he would not have sent his workers in to get lunch, he would have some back-up.I don't think because you are on probation, doesn't give someone the right to attack you with a knife...

And this county being a pressure cooker, just who keeps turning up the stove? We do need a new jail, maybe a supper 8 not the hilton... just saying...

One does not break probation if one is defending themself. The Roysdens need to leave Mr. Blevins alone and let him do his job.

If Butch had a knife, that would qualify as a violation.

There are ways to diffuse a situation; odd that he was able to defend himself so quickly if he was jumped. Still violated his probation; maybe he'll be a resident in the new jail everyone seems to want so badly!! Just sayin...

when a man cant carry a pocket knife with him is a sad day! and what the hell does butch being on probation have to do with any of this....if someone is coming after me and i know that for a fact...i am not going to carry my pocket knife for defense...i would bring along my 38 s&w! butch is a smart man and whether u like him or not h has done a good job as road supervisor for this county....and mark? what was he thinking? attack a county official in a public place at the busiest time of the day? duh! mark aint dumb but he sure as hell wasnt using his brains on this one! he is from a good family...his parents have worked hard all of their lives...butch has always been kind and helpful...he has a wonderful wife and daughter...there has to be more hear than meets the eye! have they been drug tested? sounds to freaky to me!

Did they bring their big ol' broom to sweep it under the rug, with the rest of the crap that goes on here, and nothing is ever done?

If you people will remember Mark attacted his on Mother & Dad. That is when his own Dad shot him. Sounds to me like he likes trouble.You can't go around stabbing people and keep getting by with it. Sooner than later someone is going to strike back.He has been in trouble for stabbing before.

wow...i did not know mark attacked his own parents! i must have been living in east tn during that incident! and who is the folks with the big ol' broom? we talking about sweeping mark's crap under the rug or butch's crap under the rug? fact is that a lot of folks in this county suffer from tunnel vision...they can only see one side instead of the whole picture...corruption is as old as prostitution....it is never going to change no matter how long or how loud you scream...the trick to survival is to know when to shut up before your throat gets sore! i just hate that this terrible act of violence has raised its ugly head in our beautiful fentress county! jesus would be so sad!

If Butch and Mark are cousins, Butch should be well aware of Mark's personality and history. And why would he give a felon a job in the first place?
