Did you ever think that just maybe all the story is not here just the media version? The officers done everything they were suppose to do, but sometimes things like this happen in ever county! Lay off the people out there putting their lives on the line with very little pay so the jack asses like you can sleep at night!

. I agree the Morgan county law enforcement ae way under paid, and I heard Don Edwards and Toomy Francis, say they wanted to cut 10% from all depts in Morgan county Gov. How can anyone with a brain think 10% could be cut from an under budgeted dept , that has employees who qualifies for food stamps, These guys need to try living off what they expect others to live on. Enough said.

The media got their story from the department. And i can tell u for sure that u never take your eyes off of a person you are there to take to jail. They made a big mistake in doing so. But the officers do not get the training they really need here. The department has a group of people that are special, if a department member is not in that group, they get very little if any training. administration dictates who is a member of the special group. This is not something i have heard, it is something i know first hand. And as far as the budget being cut, that would just put a spending limit on how many out of town hotels can be reserved for married members of the department to cheat on their better half with other dept members and not get caught. It does not really take anything from our officers. Besides, if i were the mayor, i would bring a forensic accountant in to go over all the spending. I think he would find some very interesting spending habits .

Robert still sore are u bring Mr Edwards in on a shooting he had nothing to do with. You no nothing about a budget those officers seem to drive really nice police cars maybe should have taking some of that money and spent it on their wife and kids those self centered fastereds.

our whole countygovernment needs a blood transfusion, like a family tree it needs more branches. not more on the payroll just less family members and good ol boys running it. also where is all the money spent that they collect from the probation office because it looks like the busiest place in town. and i have heard the probation office needs to be looked into for being dishonest

It was in the paper. It said she told the cops she wasnt wearing any underwear so she wanted to change. The cops gave her privacy and thats when she grabbed the gun.

Jinger is out of the hospital and staying with her mother. She will have to have surgery to repair get shoulder and a long road of recovery. Get two sons have been taken out of her custody and they are now living in another state with their father. I wonder if she will get charged for shooting herself with her children just in the other room? I heard the kids were actually in the house with her.

He is no Angel. He cheated on jinger all the time while he was on the road. He may have worked hard but when he was home his kids paid hell. Yes jinger may have deserved his angry words but not the kids. He told his little boy that he was a stupid fat useless son of a b!tch .... all because the little boy walked through and saw mike and jinger fighting. Neither of them deserve to have the children.

Go ahead and talk lol you have never met me. I was told how you were so I didn't come around when you were there. Try to scare or intemidate someone else. You think you can say and do what you want to anyone even children. I have known jinger all my life and my happy she is o.k. but I would shoot myself to if I had to live with you. You can play the saint all you want but anyone who matters knows the truth.
