Methbusters is a good idea if you have someone other than the Franklin County Drug Task Force doing it. I have lived in this area for two years and am amazed how Franklin County and Crawford County Law Enforcemnt think they are above the law and people have no rights. Law enforcement agents arehired to serve the public. It is their duty to enforce the law, but that doesnot give them the authority to act lawlessly. They must also abide by regulations outlined by the government. I know a guy who has been harrassed by the Franklin County Drug Task Force. He has a past of using meth and has done his time for it. Methbusters shows up at his house with 3-5 cameras and vans full of people while he was not home. The neighbors called his wife to let her know something was going on and people were walking through their yard with video cameras. She shows up to her house and they ask for her husband. She asks what the matter was all about. They say we just need your husband. She responds that she will go get her husband and bring him back without their kids. He tells her that is not going to work. They proceed to tell her that they know her husband is with her child at a sport event that the child is in and they sent people to the fields. To make a long story short, they not only went through their yard illegally with no warrant video taping, harrassed her, went to the fields to look for their kids, threaten that if he did not take a part in methbusters and give them 10 minutes of his time he woud never get to go to another sporting event with their son without the team and cameras showing up they also threatened the family the would call child enforcement. This man and his wife are trying to work things out as she feels betrayed, they are going to counseling, they both work full time jobs, take care of their kids and are excellent parents. Yes, he made a mistake. He has owned up to that and done everything that was required of him by the court ad more for his family. He has been working very hard to beat this addiction and does not need stuff like this and for these people to try and bully people for a reality show should be against the law. And these are the people trying to enforce the law who are doing the threatening and bullying? To get the children involvd by going to their sporting events? Its not the childrens fault. Then we have other children making fun of him. Thats not fair. They have to tell their kids not to talk to police officers, what does that teach the child, to be scared of police officers? I understand making people pay for their mistakes but I also understand after they have done so then they have the right to try and live a normal life without being harrassed!

I agree with the above comment and have more to say about it. The head of the task force grellner i think is as corrupt as you can possibly get. He has repeatedly harassed and humilated people, for no reason. He seems to think he above the law and in actuality is kind of. They have noone to report to and no checks and balances no internal affairs, nothing to keep them in check. I believe they are all about the money and have no integrity whatsoever.
