Two more idiots arrested! Someone at the jail is on their toes! Well done! Maybe, we should give who ever is watching the cameras a gun and a badge and let him watch over all of us instead of the jail. Hell, maybe we should elect him Sheriff.

The funny thing is there is no camera back behind the jail.The reason I know this is because Layel,said on the news he was working on getting a camera put back there.Another,thing that has blow my mind is Soboxone, aways is something they find.This,has been going on ever since the new jail was built that is how all the druggies get there drugs.Eveyone that has been in jail has told there stories of how the policemen are so dumb.The reason I know this is because a girl I talk to sons friend was in jail and he would make jokes about it to everyone.If you ask me all the people that work at the jail need to be fired and we need new people that can do there job right. Also, a new judge.Leyal,son also gives the inmates cell phones from what Ive heard.

The sheriff has told me in person,(and Oak Tree was present) that drugs and cell phones are inside the jail, and that he can't stop this traffic.
If he can't control the jail, which has bars and security cameras, how is he supposed to protect us?
I'd say we need to arm ourselves to the teeth and protect ourselves.

How could any sheriff in his right mind say he can't control what comes into his jail? A more feasible reason would be they don't enforce the rules or want to put out the effort.....and that's why it keeps happening. You couldn't ask for a more controllable situation than a jail. What a crock of poo.

He did't just say this to the two of us, he stated it in front of many at a meeting he held. I am in agreement with you. If he can not control what comes into a locked down facility, what exactly can he control? His bladder, maybe? He claimed to be under staffed without proper cars. He got extra money over his budge to provide these things. I would like to know where the money went and exactly what he did to improve the situation.

To the pesron telling me to shut my pie hole... Get a life. I have something to say, if you don't like it, don't read it. What have you got to say about this other than you want to disagree with me? Do you have anything of value to add? I doubt that you can even form an opinion on your own. So, how about you shut your cock holster until you can add an opinion on the subject.

Who needs a clue for something so obvious? There are some real problems with what's going on down at that jail and instead of having something significant to add to the conversation, you yip yap around because you have personal issues with Oak Tree. What a goofball you are.

I do not believe any man, in his right mind, would tell anyone, with as big a mouth as some people are known to have, any of this bull shit. That would be political suicide. I don't even know your sheriff, but he'd have to be a raving loon to say anything, even remotely like this to ANYONE.......and she says he told HER! I AINT BUYING A WORD OF IT, NOT TRUE AND I DON'T CARE HOW MANY WITNESSES YOU'VE GOT! I'm personally calling the sheriff today and telling him what you're saying on this piece of crap rag, gossip crap of a forum. I would be ashamed to post my name to anything if I lied with almost every post made, you are disgusting and disgraceful!

To: What a Crock
Oak Tree and I did not lie when we stated what we have.
We weere both at a public meeting at the new 'High Screwel', and we can hear and understand just fine.
There were several other well-known Grainger County public figures there, and among them were Nadine Stansberry. You should know her, and if you don't, you're out of touch.
You people who try to be detractors of Oak Tree and myself are hurling insults at people who have a true interest in improving the lives of Grainger County citizens, the way our county government is run, and the potential lawsuits when so many failures are 'shrugged off' as "Something that can't be controlled".
Crock of Crap, I hope you will call the sheriff, as I can't seem to get him on his cell phone, the phone lines at the 'Justice Center'(forthwith to be called 'The Rat Hole'), or the two-way radio system that the jail uses to contact the sheriff.
Sarah Fennell told me (words out of her mouth) that this is often the case. I also have a reliable witness for this conversation, which took place through the window of the 'Rat Hole'.
The present usurper at the Sheriff's Office has admitted publicly, and several of his employees have admitted to me personally and in the presence of witnesses, that he is incapable of performing the duties of his job.
You ask me to present to you my witnesses. You have only to name the location and time. I will try to get my witnesses there, and I will try very hard to be there. I ask you to understand that I am occupied with several side issues, and my time is not totally flexible, but I state publicly on this site that I will try to meet you at your convience.
If you are not willing to meet my request for this meeting, then I suggest that you shut YOUR pie hole.
As Oak Tree capably stated, you hurl insults at us, when you are just trying to be a distraction from real issues.
Perhaps you should be asked to present documentation that the sheriff IS doing a capable job.
We are having things stolen every day that are as large as campers, automobiles, lawn furniture, home furnaces, and herds of cattle, and the presumptive sheriff can't help the victims of these crimes.
Just who is he helping?
I eagerly await your next invective.
I anticipate that it will have about as much content as your last.

I agree w/ Oak Tree and Queen. The two people know what they are talking about. I do not see any harm that they are commenting on. I do see that when so many people are negative about the wrongs that are being done that they might just be for the ones inside the bars. When looking in and justice isn`t obeyed then someone or alot are being for the crooks. By the columns that Oak Tree and Queen writes it is like they know the justice system and the ones so negative are for the inmates. Our LAWS of this country are being misused but I guarantee that if someone tried to come into our homes or point a weapon at anyone they would call the law and expect them to come. We all should watch what we say and do and try to make this a better place to live . We can not live without laws because none of us would be safe anywhere.

I knew more than a few people that attended this meeting and heard the sheriff state openly that he could not control the flow of drugs and cell phones inside the jail. It was a meeting open to the public, where were you? I can provide you with several names here in Blaine, that did attend. This is something that was said openly in front of MANY people, at least 50 to 75, probably more. I would swear on it in court. I am many things, but a lier is not one of them. Good luck on reaching the sheriff today with your phone call. IF you reach him and IF he denies saying this, you can add lier to his list of qualities. I would not call our sheriff a raving loon, I would say he is more like a bumbling fool, but that is just my opinion.

Oak Tree and Queen are the two sorriest excuses for citizens in Grainger County that exist. There is nothing but NEGATIVE that can be said about either of them. Just my opinion, mind you. I, for one, do not want the kind of changes either of them would bring to our community, except for their departure!

Oak Tree wishes for a stop to the drugs and addiction in our county. Oak tree would like to see the crime rate drop. Oak Tree would like to go to bed at night with out wondering if all the doors and windows are locked. Oak Tree would like to lay down and sleep without wondering if the barn door was secure.

I am NOT a negative person. I happen to believe we live in one of the best places in the world. Do you have something against improvement? There is always room for it. Why should anyone have to settle for the way things are, when we can work to make improvements? Do you like to see your neighbor's families torn apart by addiction? Do you enjoy seeing people robbed of their life's work and savings by drug addicts? Do you enjoy pressing 1 for English? I am an American. I live in the home of the Free and the Brave. A place where all things are possible. A place where even an idiot can express an opinion. I don't have to like your opinion, but you are free to express it, just as I am. You have a good day and Happy Independence day to you.

AMEN AND AMEN! That woman has more mouth than an elephant has ass. Nothing "they" (she and Oak)say, would I believe, ever. Anyone that can talk that much, every single day, has got way too much time on their hands.

To queen, ever heard of INSURANCE? You can get ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING INSURED, stop moaning, complaining and whining; purchase insurance, a security system and a damned dog, problem solved.

We all know she's got more mouth than an elephant has ass, anyone with that much to say, can't possibly be factual/truthful at least fifty percent of the time!

Now come on tree, and tell me how hideous I am for telling the truth on your buddy. Just look at her post, one's allowed around five thousand characters, she uses at least 4699 with each post, lmao!

I recommend, fooliosh, that YOU remember karma. You attacked the sincerity and honest of a lady who has become the victim of cancer is not only rude, but cruel.
What Oak Tree and I are3 doing is trying to educate the public as to the cavelier attitude taken by Casper toward the crinimal element in this county.
We have proof in this thread that someone has a cell phone inside the jail, but we alone know this. Casper can't do anything about it, so the problem doesn't exist.
Yet you don't get angry at the sheriff, you want the reporting to stop.
Well, tghere's one born every minute.
