What a thing to be remembered for.....
Way to go were leading in the state for meth, how embarrasing and how very sad... Are we really that weak a people. On the other hand, a big thumbs up for our law enforcement....

Big meth bust WTG law enforcement. Please work on cleaning up the pill heads who use TNCARE to obtain drugs then pass them around on the streets.

Work on removing those in positions of authority who sit on their rears doing nothing to clean this town up. Put the criminals in jail and keep them there!

Heard that AC may be getting a new Sheriff who is hardcore on drugs and theives! I surely hope so for the sake of Lake City!

Who knows maybe the town of LC can be saved and turn into a really nice small town. Clean it up and it may even draw new industry to the area!

You could look at this im another way. Amderson County law inforcement is number 1 in the state at detecting and shutting down meth labs. Way to go, keep up the good work.

The officers do their jobs. It is the system that fails us. The meth cooks will get arrested over and over and go right back to it.

The answer is simple, make sudafedron a prescripion only drug. Limited access will stop makers from having the source.

if acsd, dea didn't have all these snitches doing there work for them, they wouldn't bust 1/4 of the people the do, a "drug dealer" is some one that it a danger to kids and the community, the sale lots I mean lots, of...meth, or coke, or pills, hell or all of it, they have big ties, with big powerful people, they don't get them cause there snitches would end up dead...so they go out and arrest these older people on SS trying to survive, by selling ten of there pills so they can feel there script, or someone that is a middle person, that u can call up and they might can find you 2-3 pain pills or xanaxs. or 20 sack of meth. that's who are law enforcement go after..and it's to make money, cause it buts people in the system, that means more money for acsd...criminals are building that new jail add ons. If your going to get a drug dealer then get some, like this federal bust, those was some drug dealers, BUT..IF THEY HAD NOT BEEN SNITCHED ON A FEW YEARS AGO, they wouldn't even had half of those people. WAKE UP PEOPLE...it's all about the dam money!!!!!!!!!!

Speaking up; hate to admit it be you do have a point. But, if you are correct our country is lost. I refuse to believe that all cops and elected officials are corrupt, although it does seem evident that the Mr. Bigs never seem to go down just the little nobodies.
