There have been so many problems in Meigs County with a lot of crooks getting away with a lot of things. The drug problem (Meth) is really bad now. They are stealing from everyone and taking whatever they can get their hands on.
Makes you wonder why the sheriff isn't doing more to stop it. Really makes you wonder!

They wouldn't always look in the lower end of the County if you and your "son" would stay out of trouble! It's real funny that your "son" runs with the wrong crowd and they all end up in jail for stealing trucks, cars, hitting neighborhoods over and over again.
Oh and let's not forget the survveillance videos of them using stolen credit cards.
I hope your "son" enjoys jail cause it looks like he is ging away for a long time...this time!

nothing ever gets done about the problem
because most of the drug dealers/users are related to the sheriff

Most of the drug dealers are related to the Sheriff in some way or another. The only people getting busted is the users not the people making it. Walter Hickman does not want "his" county known as meth county, even though that is exactly what it is. Meth is on every corner in that county. I lived in Meigs County all of my life. After I had children I moved out of the county because I want my children to it least have a chance at not getting on drugs. In Meigs County you will find parents actually doing meth with their children.

If people are so concerned about the problems Meigs County has why do they not do some thing about it. Meigs County police are not going to do a thing. Most of the officers have a drug problem themself. The only way to clean up the county is to get a new sheriff and new deputies.

they'll bust you over there...but if you pay, the search warrant will be dropped and no trial. or they'll leave you alone if you are one of their friends. officer johnson stole dope from dealers and never turned it in. Glad we moved!

You are correct, maybe in May one of them will be gone for a while if the courts work in Meigs County.

Both the TBI and DA have been well informed as to the drug use in Meigs County and have done very little if anything to curb this massive problem in Meigs County. WE NEED A CLEAN SWEEP OF THE SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT IN THE NEXT ELECTION.

It will not matter if they arrest 500, so far the court system has also failed in that county.
There were some major thefts in our area, truck, car and dozens of break ins and they just turned them out again to keep on doing it........
Some of these boys had rap sheets 5 pages long but the court just keep turning them loose again!
The sheriff's dept and the court system both need a good white washing..........

Newbie, you have no real reason for concern.

Check out the new post (copy and paste to your browser):
http://www.topix.com/forum/city/decatur-tn/TT...

There are also some new pictures uploaded. Don't let these postings lead you astray--It's a great place to live!

***Just a little note***
I don't think that everyone realizes how much it defames our county by posting all these comments. When a Google search is done, this website is included in the results.

Work has already begun on the plant at Watts Bar and will continue for years. The Volkswagen plant is under construction. There are also many other promising projects that are near us. With that being said, people that may consider moving to our county or city (for the aforementioned reasons) will read these things and think we live in the most corrupt, scandalous, crime and drug-ridden cities in Tennessee. When in reality, it is nothing of the sort!

We do not have a gang problem, there are no shootings at our schools, nor do we have to worry about being mugged when we go to the grocery store. Children can play safely in our parks. Our citizens have the freedom to take a jog down their road without the worry of being kidnapped or assaulted.

In addition, we have a wonderful school system, which I am grateful to be a product of. I believe that I received an above-average education from the encouraging teachers that were (and currently are) employed by the school system.

Also, it is a beautiful place to live. We have some of the most picturesque views in the South, especially in the fall. The sunset on the shoreline is breathtaking.

Everyone should think twice about posting whatever comes to mind when you're angry, and you feel like ranting. Should you have a serious problem, then follow the appropriate chain of authority and work to get it resolved. If you feel like you weren't treated justly, then there are officials higher up in the government that will investigate your allegation, should your claim be warranted.

While I am not dismissing the problems in our county (although they are blown out of proportion entirely), I am asking that you not dismiss the prosperity that is so evident in our county.
***Thank you***

--For the record, I do not work for, nor do I have any family that is affiliated with anyone in Meigs County government, law enforcement, or anything of that nature. I do not have one of the prominent 'names' in the county; rather it is quite the contrary. My motivation for writing this was to shed light on the depreciative effects on Meigs County’s reputation by these somewhat justified, yet overly exaggerated, comments.--
