<quoted text>I am weelaware of how close your community is, when my brother was killed there you all were very good at covering up how it happened. Over the years information has emerged as to how it went down.Evidence is another story. In any case his family has not forgotten and we are working finding the person who did it. this time no evidence but some may just turn up.
as fro being what ever from Scott county, I grew up there and I left as soon as I could. I nthink it is a dump. populated by murders and thieves. i have been stole from by peoplether and my brother killed by a person there. So don`t tell me how rightous yo all are. Yes you are tight. As for your women, I don`t need one, the world has plenty, thatb I don`t have to get killed over.
As for being a real good place tell John John Yancy`s kids that.
You need to blame the law enforcement, not the good people of Scott County. How many years ago was it your brother got murdered?

There a lot of good people in Scott County, but like any place else, you have the evil ones. The trouble there is it is a small county and not a lot of money flying around.Cheap to buy off county officials. Something happens and it involves somebody with just a little money and somebody with none, easy to cover or it blame it on somebody else.The other thing is the families are all connected by relation. Hard to find anyone who has had family there for several generations who is not realted to a lot of people.blood ties are strong, people won`t go against their relatives even if the know they are wrong and anybody is an outsider to them who does not go back four or five generations.
My grandparents moved there during the depression, my parents grew up there. We were never really considered part of the community. I left as soon as I was old enough and never intend to move back. I found there a lot better places to live and not have to worry about somebody shooting me for some reason known only to them. My brother was also killed there many years ago,he tried to go back and live there after he got out of the service. He was killed overt hings i won`t mention and his killer got away with it. Nobody ever was tried for it. I have been told over the years by people who lived there, it did not happen they way we were told. I also have received anonymous phone calls at night telling me who did it and why. No proof, person called using an untraceable phone. He was killed many years ago and buried there. No records at the court house ,all been lost. That is how things go there. It is almost like he never was,he was killed so long ago most of the people who any knowledge of it have passed on. I will never know the real story and the one who did it got away with it.
I can understand why people are upset with the place. It looks like it is still going on, same old stuff.

Didn't everyone know according to Knoxville media this jewel is the premier place in the united states to bring your family and business!
I think that comment shows how delusional these 180 degree backward black hole rednecks are and it shows how credible their spoken word is!!

If you like your computer followed your phone records hacked and the snaggle tooth at the bank giving your bank details and personal information to all the inbreads in town and their cop buddy's helping with the operation than I would say yes this is the place for you!!
:)smiles for miles
P.S. If your a normal person that enjoys peace and safety than it might be best if you kept your family away from these surrounding states and don't bring your money into their economy and for god's sake don't hire anyone from these places if you do your playing with fire that is nothing but a two faced back stabbing liar mentality!!

My brother was murdered there several years ago and it was made to look like a case of self defense. I got stories about how he had been having an affair with the guy`s wife,not sure if it was true or not. Any way from what I heard around was the woman called him up and asked him to come over, he came over and was killed. According to the police it was self defense, but his coat had five holes in the back of it with powder burns on it.The sides of his shoes had mud like he had been drug for a distance and placed in the doorway. still it was considered self defense. Now they have lost all records of any of this,not record in the county of him ever being killed there. Kind of strange don`t you think?

I agree the law there is a joke . They have a law for those in the clique and a law for those not in the clique.Hope the place sinks into a big hole.

I was born andraised there,almost starved to death when I was a kid. All we had too eat for about a month was turnips.been a long time ago but never forgot it. It is a dump. Left as sooon as I was old enough,been back a few time. No way would I ever live there again. Peple will steal,lie,murder and do most anything low down. Law is useless. I think they should send in the Army,put it unde r martial law and clean it up. Take the kids from the dysfunctional homes and place them with famlies who know how to raise kids.Sterlize the adults and make sure they do bring anymoere kids intot he world to be abused and mistreated so the worthless parents can get welfare. My take on the whole place and Cherryfork Road is a good place to start.

My wife was born and raised in Scott County and she is the most wonderful and bright person I have ever met. She also waited most of her life to get out of there but her family is great. Most of them live there and they are really good people. I guess everyone has an opinion but I have not seen nothing but good things when I go there. I would not trade her for anyone and that say's a lot about her. Sorry you folks have had bad experiences but I don't know where I would be without my Scott County born and raised Princess!

The people in Scott County overall are God-fearing and family focused. It is some of the elected officals who are the real criminals....thats why crimes don't get investigated...remember when the Sheriff was arrested by the FBI/TBF agents? He was arrested right at his office in the Scott County Jail and died in prison. Then his brother was elected sheriff...go figure. One of their detectives was also brought up on drug charges a few years later. Then the nephew of of the sheriff who died in prison...son of the sheriff at that time...killed his partnter John-John during a drug raid. And some of the officials are probably still involved in the drug ring there. Scott County has a reputation for having corrupt law enforcement. The whole legal system should be investigated by impartial, outside law enforcement. I think a few folks from the medical & buisness professiions whould develop serious bowel disorders if that happened....

I grew up in scott County, left there a long time ago but go back from time to time. My grandparents,aunts and uncles and my brothere are all buried in Scott County. In my opinion the majority of the people are good people. No better anyplace. Problem is they are not the ruling clique. The officals are crooked and a few people own what is there that makes any money. The rest are just making it. I like the people and wish them the best.However as has been said by others on her, until an outside agency comes in and investigates the law,judges and DA`s office it is going to be a place where justice is denied in many cases. I think it what people are referring to when the talk bout it being a bad place . It is the few who are corrupt and of course you have the criminal element there just like any place else.Your wife is probably not from the ruling group. There are many good hard working honest people in Scott County.

Cameras and Private Investigators take care of the game these fools play! It's funny how short their little memory's are, since they have no ability to control their thoughts or mental process which manifest through their body language and what comes out of their mouths it's amusing to record a behavior then make a comment in a place like this or youtube and then record their behavior change and they live in awe of how you know their following you around, it's even more hilarious to watch and document them trying to cover their body language once you have given them the information (because they sure didn't figure it out on their own)! It's funny to watch them jitter around, how can any person in their right mind think and behave in such a manner, oh wait that's the fault in the question, their not in their right minds, their mentally ill children and adult children and the fact is this is an entire culture of mentally ill people that any camera can expose! Not that they can start hiding once you allow them to know your documenting them but the issue is making them understand their not hiding is another easy process. Start by hiring an investigator and have this person move into the community, get a job, a home and have this person befriend the community by acting like a nut just like them but in reality this person is just a spy with cameras and that is the very simple way to destroy the Redneck game and you can allow them this information and their is nothing they can do about it matter of fact it becomes easier once you allow them to know, the contrast in their behavior is even more pronounced!Once you understand the channels in which they derive their information it's a fairly simple thing to control!

@Outsourced You don't need the Army these people are far too weak to require said resources what you do is attack their economy (within the bounds of the Law, even though they themselves don't operate on that level), make sure the few people that would come to these community's understand what their getting into by coming here and make sure businesses understand this as well, all said people need to know if as soon as they see your car they will get your tag number and run that information, if they get your email they will get your information,remember to think of every little piece of information you give out and watch the body language of the little shits when you give it out, their plotting every second of every day to everyone around them, they try and get information by confusion as well like asking for information they shouldn't be asking and using you not paying attention to get it, Rednecks watch the mentalist and think their geniuses all the sudden well to them it is smart because of how stupid every single one of them really are!Everyone needs to understand as well how the circle works, you know that special way of life leans over and winks, that only seems smart to other monkeys!If they know someone at the cable company they get your information, if they know someone at the cell company your at they get that information and if they know a cop then boom they get all of that information, remember they think all of this is clever they really believe it! As far as the people go make sure the rest of the country understands these people and how their minds work and what a threat it is to hire them or for that matter having them in your life at all! It's like having a full throttle chain saw in your life, sooner rather than later your going to get cut up, these people are traitors even to their own family members, they are nothing more than Liars, manipulators and deceivers on a level most people in this country wouldn't believe unless they were to see it with their own eyes! So that is just what needs to be done!The 180 degree backward thought and emotional process these people use needs to be seen by the rest of the country, an example of it would how they turn everything they are and do and say it's you not them, they can do something to you and when you respond they act like you just did something out of the blue to them now this may seem trivial said here but if seen most people would react in shock of how crazy these people are, even more these people think that is a clever thing to do and would giggle at you if spoken of, they don't seem to understand the mechanics of slander&deformation and the threat and crime their stalking is! Well it's time for their economy to be effected and time to destroy the little giggles right out of them, as bad as it is things can become much,much worse than they think it already is!

There lies the problem. you have lived there all your life. You do not know any thing different.Bugs you when people point out the things going on in your little hidey hole. Got news for you,lot of grew up there, were not treated very well by people most likey like you.Maybe we never had much when we lived there, things have changed now.We got the jobs,the life. You got crap and just don`t realize it.I enjoy rubbing it in and kind of plan to continue.

The problems with Scott County are complex. They are the result of years of inbreeding,isolation and a desire to shun outside interference.Almost everyone in the county is related, on this I know because I worked with a team that researched it.This has resulted in massive inbreeding and in some cases the results have been horrible.Deformed ,retarded kids,low IQs and a strong desire to be left alone. Not surprised that murder would be treated so clairvoyantly.

The country population needs to be relocated and separated. The county needs to be turned in to a National Forrest. It will require massive work to clean up the landscape,fill in the strip mining holes ,plug the old mines and clean up the streams. The landscape is littered with old cars,refrigerators,furniture,t ires and other discarded items.This will have to be cleaned up and will be expensive.

That is what I think, I used to live there and know the history well. It will take massive outside intervention to bring them into the modern world.

Wow, Double D. I will agree that there are some complex problems in Scott County, but relocation and separation? That's illegal, I'm pretty sure, and insanely offensive. How about education? Are the problems there somehow different from problems in any other small, rural, impoverished community, especially in Appalachia? I've been there, have friends from there, and it doesn't strike me as too different from the rural areas of Texas where I grew up except for the hills.

@whishyouknewme91 Reality is even worse than anything i stated above! I think you just coming in here with your redneck misdirection BS that only works on stupid people like the other rednecks around you! It's a simple thing to fix, it's called a camera it ends all redneck lies and games!I am one of the most well composed intellect you will ever meet whishyouknewme91, they don't come anymore adult than i, i'm sorry the truth hurts you and the other adult children in your state that have no clue what reality is but i think you do your just talking some back word redneck rhetoric that can't stand direct confrontation because your just flapping your mouth and don't have anything at all to defend your opinions on any level, your just on an emotional "oh yeah bla,bla,bla" showing your the non adult in the conversation!This link is the real truth about east Tennessee http://mhaet.com/about-us.php ! 26.2% of the population needs mental health care in a year and 51% needs it in their lifetime! The real truth is from what i've seen those numbers are conservative at the very least!
@Tracey A Jones I would say yes they are very much different Kentucky,Tennessee, Vagina are all ill from a culture that breeds mental illness, i'm sorry to tell you but the circle you know that special way of life is pretty dumb and makes everyone of you look it not to mention show all of you for the criminals you are! I feel so very bad for all of you and how confused and deluded your perception's are and how all of you are just birds in a tree unaware of the world around you and don't giggle your not outsmarting anyone much less winning anything so get that fantasy out of your head!It's time for a documentary with no holds bared and put an end to crazy redneck BS once and for all!
