There seems to be a lot of low life cops in Tennessee. This story is one of the worst! They also file false charges on people and corrupt courts stand behind false charges. Everything from phone harassment to murder. The cops are the worst.

I can't wait to see a documentary of the corruption in Tennessee that is going to embarrass this entire state. Maybe then, the state government just might whip these county officials into shape.... a few in state government officials need to be exposed as well.

Low life cops sure make a bad namem for what few good ones there are!

What I find amazing about the "people" on this Louden County forum on topix is that few are outraged by this cops behavior. Two comments only. What a bunch of losers! Get you head out of your biscuits and gravy people and get your fat butts advocating for something other than UT!

Uh, if you could read English you'd understand that it was a quote by the detective. He was stating this low life admitted to raping his son. Read more than headlines if you can. And try getting your GED.

This is absolutly discusting. My heart goes out to this baby boy. The matter of the child rapeist being a Loudon cop doesnt surprise me at all. The vast majority of Loudon city, county, lenoir city, and even Tva cops are corrupt, lying, cheating whores. They let drug dealers keep on dealing everday, while they sit in deserted areas of town and by the lake cheating on their wives, it`s apalling. Damn right Loudon county justice system is a corrupt JOKE!

yes, I realized this right after posting...was a duh moment and my phone was acting up and wouldnt let me post again. However, I still feel the same about Loudon cops. I really hope this baby boy has no more harm come to him and gets lots of tenderness and love. I hope the dad rapeist gets what he deserves a brutal prison rape and beating.

Somebody fill me in, please... I have read the article but am not seeing anything about a detective....perhaps I am not reading the same one you are or I am missing something, somehow. Nothing surprises me with this county though, however, I would like to know what you guys are talking about.

I have a copy of the trial transcript. Crandall never said he raped his son, nor did either officer who testified say that he raped his son.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
