I agree with Proud, Newsome was the best Chief we had when that racist Jack Cage was working he us to f with me for no reason.and when we do get officers that respect other race they always ball game them. but this town is crooked from the Judges on down to the officers. I bet they will not let this post

No Mr.Newsome was not soliciting sex from ANYONE much less underage boys and anyone that knows him knows that you GA THICK are full of shit and unless you have your facts straight you should not spread rumors! And yes I do know this for a fact because I have seen all the evidence against him so maybe you should do some research before you blab!

One of the detectives in narcotics division that was on the case told me that. I didnt like hearing it either. The boy that he was fucking lives in Mclendon trailor park. I know exacly what im talking about. Just because u dont like hearing it dont mean its not true. Fact is it is what it is. I wasnt with Chief 100% of the time and neither was you. Another thing..i wasnt gona say it but fk it...A well known person that worked in the county jail then worked at the courthouse is friends with his wife and verified this info I got. One more thing...I couldnt care less who he was fkn i the a** as long as it wasnt my boyz or husband.

Yeah Jason Beckworth aka Jason Kramer...you do know his son well being as you all use to run the roads and smoke your dope together all those trips to Brunswick and Odom...I remember you asking Mr. Newsome several times to help get you out of a jam...hmmmm seems like some people forget their past and where they came from...just like that mama of yours is just as bad as you are about the dope (pills, pot and anything else you could get ahold of) and yes I know this all to be true and factual as well and yse good people do make stupid mistakes you should just watch your own house before you go talking about someone elses. As far as everyone else in bloody toombs as you put it I am sure they have probably said good ridence to you as well now the folks at the river don't have to worry about having there stuff stole from them...HAHAHAHAHA

Ya'll need to stop and let the courts deal with it.......this is why the world has gone to hell......No one is perfect and I don't care where u work or who u work for. Saying all that, doesn't even matter if u r u're own boss with u're own business. Worry about yourselves and let other's worry about themselves.......R any of your hands clean? Spotless? Do u live in a glass house? Everyone has secrets and skeltons.....God will Judge....Not us....Get on with your lives.

obviously you Obama Fan (your name says alot about you) do not know much about Mr. Newsome he was very much qualified and had been with the pd for many years and also other pd...and as for being on his so called Grand Juty Trial he has not had a trial yet...he has been indicted but has not been tried! So you may need to get your facts straigt too...and I am with Zandra no one is perfect everyone should clean up around their own steps before complaining of someone else.

IMO, People in public office need college degrees to be well rounded and Ricky lived 10+ miles from town.(he wouldn't be chief in most towns for the mileage). IIRC, he came from around Ft. Stewart. The former chief had similar education but he did well.

As far as quality of officers, we have a senior officer employed who went to Partin Park drunk. He was temp suspended. he's a good guy, but an alcoholic.

I was on the jury to indite him.... thanks for the clarification. I should have stated indite him but my words only mentioned "he's being tried" and not in the past tense.

Just so you know, 2 people now have keys to the evidence rooms where the drugs were misplaced. Maybe it's down to one since then.

I guess some people are racist or hates liberals with the OBAMA comment. yes he sucks, but doesn't have 100 year of political ties with foreign nations and cross and bones like societies. I'm very conservative and know each and every one of the city council and our mayor. I do voice my opinion to some of them.

I am pretty sure if you were on the Grand Jury to indict him you also are bound to not talk about it and if you were on the jury then you also know who squealed and set him up its funny how a woman can be on parole for stealing a lyons police car and kicking out the back glass and then after he was arrested her parole and charges disappeared (this is public record also) and while he may live outsidde the city limits he did not come from around Ft. Stewart he was stationed there in the 90's when he was in the military but he is from Toombs county as well as the majority of his family is. As far as the Obama comment it has nothing to do with being racist at all just think he is a terrible president not saying some of the others have been any better. It is mighty funny you know alot about the keys and who has them at the PD maybe you are on the inside there too...hmmm...and as far as the senior officer being a alcoholic he has been thru all the other cheifs too and hes not gonna change but that has nothing to do with Mr. Newsome...and I am sure if you look in your closet it is not very clean either.

Nothing was stated that wasn't public knowledge.

The key issue was brought up in the court room and control policy not really related to Ricky.
I knew who squeeled before they arrested him and knew some of the GBI agents who were in town investigating someone in power. Had a person tell me what he was doing and he was arrested by Ricky. I couldn't work for Lyons or any other municipality in the area, bc they are all a little shady.

I'm not an angel, and unfortunately made it to jury duty. Ricky was a good person and did ok as chief. He really didn't do anything that is work taxpayers paying 50+ a day for him to sit in prison forever and marijuana is not the gateway drug the govt. leads you to think.

My opinion is if you run for office or are hired as a public employee, you should be examined under a microscope because you are a public servant. BTW, I can't stand Obama and his minions.

Ricky deserved more but I assume Judge Palmer figured it would cost the taypayers more money after he was 70. The dog slayer deserved 10 years and rick 2x as much.


I hope Ricky doesn't have issues in prison.
