It's good to know that this is who is teaching the youth of tomorrow. When are people ever going to learn that meth is going to get you busted every freaking time. Forget the fact that you could blow yourself up for a freaking high. I have no sympathy for people who are complete and utter morons and do this crap. People will never learn. They forget about the families they hurt in the mean time while they do this. I say send them all down the river and be done with it. That way there is 6 more meth head idiots off the street.

Theres always the possibility that his junkie ass son was doing this without his knowledge yet ofcourse he still got popped for it.

But even more likely is the fact that one of them got the other started and it was a downward spiral from there on.

Meth is a drug that will eventually destroy a person's health or even kill them. That said however this war on drugs will never be won. The only winners in the war on drugs are the courts and the police.

The courts and police are addicted to the money and property that they seize. And heaven only knows what happens to property once it gets seized by the courts.

In a way the police have become junkies for the money and property that they steal..err..seize from others.

Here's what the police stole..er..seized,

"The task force reported agents seized meth, Hydrocodone, Morphine, Xanax, some marijuana, four firearms,$507 cash and a 2005 Dodge pickup truck."

Much of that property will end up in someone's wallet..guaranteed.

Dont be snitches people.

don't snitch on people? seriously? that is why there is such a huge problem. to get this stuff off the street people have to snitch on drug dealers and last time i checked that was a good thing not a bad thing. And I'm sure there are some bad cops out there that take things they shouldn't. But was it wrong to take firearms from a drug dealer? I don't think so. Cops seize that stuff then auction it and the money goes to the drug fund that in turn is used to help crack down on criminals like the 6 that were arrested. If you'd like your town to still be infested with drugs then by all means keep complaining about the cops. But they have every right to seize stuff from drug dealers b/c as drug dealers they kinda had it coming.

You apparently have no clue what you talking about. The property that is seized goes to seziure court and a judge decides what to do with it, which is usually auctioned off to the public except the guns, and the drugs are destroyed. As far as not snitching, thats one of the most ignorant things someone could say, yes please dont snitch on drug dealers, id hate for them to get caught. If the public knew how much it cost taxpayers to clean up a meth lab, im sure alot of snitching would go on, personally, im sick of my tax money going towards cleaning up these labs that these idiots start!

(1) Do you have a clue how easy it is to lose property in a alcohol/drug seizure situation? The police could so much as SAY you are guilty of something and they have the right to seize your property-no proof needed.

Lets say you left your car on the side of the road on this meth bust property at the time they were busted because the radiator blew. Even half on the public roadway, half on their grass, your car would be seized and it would take you MONTHS maybe even years to just get a hearing to see about the possibility of getting your car back in which the system is setup to make sure you cannot get your property back half of the time even if you knew noone at the residence and had no idea what was going on.

And if you just happened to know one of these guys back in high school, even if you yourself were not found guilty of ANYTHING you may as well kiss that car goodbye along with any other property inside of it.

So what are you to say now? Better hope your car is well maintained?

When the property is "auctioned off" the "auction" items are picked over before they ever make it to the "auction" by the local officials. The "auction" is basically non publicized if at all if there is something that must be bid on per state mandate-that way the pig that wants to buy it gets it at a cheap price.

When they all get their fill, bellies fulled up, then they will actually auction things off to raise cash for who knows what. for all we know the guns are given to children who knows.

lets not even get started on cash.

However i do agree with you on the meth lab cleanups, however i am certain the quoted cost is triple what the actual cost is. Yes, everyone snitch lol thats a good thing, it makes the local government a ton of proceeds.

Hmm, you my friend are a complete idiot about the seizure process. An officer does have to have proof to seize property, no matter what it is. They have to show proof to a judge as to the property being proceeds of the drug trade or used to help further the crime. And, it has to be felony amounts of drugs. And the state works hard to see to it that a person gets their property back and it doesn't take years. So, until you have actually seized property, had property seized or worked for the state that administers the hearings you should probably research the issue a little bit more.

HMM, i would say mark agee, gibson county sheriffs dept. and the Tennessee department of transportation must not know what their talking about/doing then.....but of course, you do. I think we all know how things around here work, its not clear cut law enforcement its the good ole boy system.
