It looks like somebody let the cat out of the bag. Shame on you for telling too many people before the raid. 11 people is not very many for a 5 month operation.Better luck next time. I hope you catch half of Knox Co.

Just for the FYI, once Indictments are read in open court, they are public information. There are numbers of people in the courtroom and the word can spread fast.

You cannot blame this on one individual or one office. You need to know the facts about the Grand Jury Indictments before you make such accusations.

Know your facts...

Did they read those indictments in open court before the raid? If so you'd of thought the raid would of started right after they were read. Hmmmm

Why does the Sheriff always get the blame? Is he not the one out busting these losers all the time? I say its about time we actually got a Sheriff in that will do his job. If u want drugs running this county, vote for Kyle Campbell...or just go all out and vote Wilbur back in!

I think that's a good idea to vote Wilbur back in . He only had about 2-3 deputies, no, suv and old cars and no Unite and we didn't have all this mess. just think about that for a minute, but it is true

BTW!i don't see what the hell UnITe is so upset about everyone knowing they were indicted,i guess if they knew the law themselves,they would know that on or about every third friday of every month,by"OPEN RECORD LAW" the "GRANDJURY" reads the indictments ALOUD in the "CIRCUIT COURT ROOM"!!!
