Like many other drivers in Monday night's flash flooding, Cookeville Police Officer Derrick Springs misjudged the depth of water on a city street and drove straight into about four feet of water.

Well said and I totally agree with you. Dope heads and half ass criminals always have something negative to say about the police.

Thank you CPD and PCSO for the wonderful jobs you all do.

Paying tax on your rolling papers doesnít make you a taxpayer. If you want to complain about tax dollars going to waste ,why donít you post something about these low life thugs that the tax payers have to keep up.
You know the ones. They secure their future with having Tenn care kids, instead of working. The ones who the government feeds, supplies with medicine including Dope, Free pain clinic visits, and basically pays for everything else they need. because they wont workÖ.I bet you couldnít post something like that because that just might apply to you.
Iím a real taxpayer and I think I can speak for most other taxpayers , As long as the officer is ok, which I hope he is. Then who gives a ratís ass about him driving into a flooded street.
Punk you need to grow up, get off the drugs, buy a bar of soap, fill out an application, get a job and become a taxpayer then you can walk the talk.

Small world, I was in the food-line today.
However I think waste should be looked at closely to help keep taxes low. The rate was jumped up even though some select citizen's property is highly under-valued.

Yeah, and if you truly don't like all these assholes on TennCare, then do something about it.

Seriously. Yes you.

The people who are handing out the TennCare cards are your neighbors and fellow citizens of Putnam County, not some nameless, faceless person in Nashville on Robertson Pkwy.

Why don't you contact these wonderful people at DHS and let them know what you think. Better yet, why don't a whole bunch of us get together and let the local office and the state office know.

Why can't Bubba and his whore both get jobs?

A woman can work and should work just as hard as a man. Everyone can do something productive. Work. Work. Work.

And quit wasting educational dollars on these welfare recipients. We don't need any more hairdressers, CNA's, or any other similar types. Everyone knows that the educational dollars are just wasted in the end.

If you want to piss and moan about government leave the Police alone! Why donít you focuses real problems.. on were are tax dollars are really going! To keep up and provide for the drug addicts, thieves, and the sorry people that donít want to work!!! Yes we can!! Well, We sure as hell did didnít we!! Just look at where things are going!
Itís sad when the same government that our police work for, are supporting and keeping up the same trash that our police have to deal with daily! All theses benefitís the trash in society is getting should be stopped!!
Take that money and pay our police, firefighters, and emergency service people with it give them a pay raise!!
You know our country is in trouble when you turn on the news and hear that your president ( OBAMA , in case some of you donít know who he is, or where your free stuff is coming from.) Is meeting with a guy called. pimp with a limp!
I support our police and emergency service people, they have to deal with the worst of everything, then you have morons, who posts crap like this! Get a job!!

I think some of you folks are super sensitive about your police dept.
I think they need to practice what they preach, "turn around, don't drown".
I think some need to be learned better.

Itís obvious your ass is from the sticks/woods. Learned better ?? Should be taught.
Since you obviously havenít learned anything why are you posting dumb post? Now that you have been taught that your post is dumb. Why donít you go get your GED, a job and a life? Zombie !!

Is it that all you have to do is worry about, and post about someone driving in a water whole?
Do you have that much time on your hands to worry about someone driving in a water whole?
Iím sure at some point in your life you have been trained to act like you have a brain, but do you do it?
Obviously not.
Here is a clue for you, YOU sound foolish with your post, and concerns. Now go on back to watching your TV while the taxpayers keeps you up.
This is a good example of what drugs does to the human brain.

Sounds like you need to go back to school too, "learned better haha".... it's hole not whole, and you said it twice. What a dingaling! I agree. If your going to tell someone to turn around, don't drown, maybe you should follow your own advice. Hello?? There's a big river!! Was he in hot pursuit? I don't think so. It's a wonder the HC even put it in the paper. They are usually on the other side of the fence. And before you judge me, I do work, pay taxes, and support myself.

Zombie, I did not mean to get you upset.
I'm not the one talking about your learning either.
I was just pointing out that more skooling would be helpful to the people that protect us.
This thing makes it obvious that mour learning could go a long way and may be save the tax payers.
