Sounds like Morristown needs new leadership,Its the Morristown city GOV. and Business that wanted the illegals here to save money on them paying no payroll taxes,no workers compensation,just to get cheap labor,now the illegals are not working and just selling drugs and brought Prostitution into the area,having anchor babies,getting foodstamps and welfare.The morristown city GOV. has ran all the manufacturing jobs away from morristown.So if u move to morristown the only jobs are.....Drug dealing....Cops...Doctors(pain clinics)...And fast food....WELL GOOD JOB U HAVE DONE MORRISTOWN CITY GOV. U have turned your city into a sh*t hole of east tennessee....

This town is ruined already and it would take martial law to clean it up at this point. It's plain that our law enforcers are ignorant to the fact of what to do about all the illegal hispanics in our town. Their pockets are being lined with all the big businesses that hire the illegals and are afraid of job security. I'm voting against anyone that is in office right now. We need a turnover in a big way!

Yes, pills have ruined HC. Pot is not the problem. And I have yet to see any illegals taking pills like the white trash here.

"As the population grows inside the jail, the more taxing it is to the population outside. In 2011, Hamblen County fed 27,000 meals to illegal immigrants in custody. That was only about 10% percent of the whole jail population."

This is pulled right from the article. Illegals make up 10% of the Jails. Proving that inbred white trash is the "major" problem here, and NOT illegals.

It's kind of that whole, "let's divert our own lack of civility" thing. Shame, shame on you pious, skeleton having a holes. Anyway, I have an appointment at the pain clinic.

Sarcasm, use it!

Morristown is not trash nor is Morristown fueled by tge drug epidemic . Morristown is growing , adding more citizens . When a small city grows , then the crime & drug rate increases . Compare Morristown to other cities with equivalent population and you will find the same issues across the states. I personally will not sit back and allow my City to be ran into the ground , if you do not like it here then that's perfect but degrading Morristown on our forum , that's not going to happen .

You're obviously very uneducated, but do you have to make your town look that much worse by even posting on here? Go back to church and pray or something. You're nothing but a low-life, loser, inbred coward.
