police brutality

Police need probable cause to force someone out of there own vehicle. And the fact that this man had a double hip replacement is a good reason why he couldn't get out of the vehicle. Police brutality is on the rise everywhere. Cocke county's sheriff department is a good example of police corruption destroying a small town.  (Jul 26, 2014 | post #115)

Where is the can crew at today

And another thing I've noticed how all these comments sound as if I have made a request for an actual police officer to pick up some trash. The officers sit in a van while the county inmates do the work in the hot sun. Cocke County police are paid fairly well compared to the average uneducated citizens of this county. Some may say they deserve more since there lives are on the line every day. Let's be serious though. When was the last time you heard of an officer being killed in the line of duty in this county? The police have completely forgotten what there duty was intended to be. Protect and Serve. They are starting to act like they think that they're military or something. Most of the officers who work here aren't even from this county. Or they're 20 something year old boys on a power trip.  (Jul 18, 2014 | post #8)

We do pick up the trash in front of our church. But the trash I'm speaking of isn't on church property. It goes down the street for miles. Considering we have double the amount of officers per thousand citizen as legally recommended, and the fact that the county conviction rate has went up 80%, I'm sure there are enough officers and inmates to keep our roads clean. Sadly though, I understand the scorn people have against church members, around here anyway. The biggest criminals in town are the ones who run this town. And they dare to call themselves Christians.  (Jul 18, 2014 | post #7)

I have called the sheriffs department several times to request that they send a crew out to clean up the road in front of my church. I was assured weeks ago that it would be taken care of in the next few days. For some reason there's still trash all over the property surrounding the church.( most people must have enough respect not to throw their trash directly on the church grounds) Although I have seen the county inmates on Morristown hwy, Cosby hwy, and even Bogarde more than once.  (Jul 11, 2014 | post #1)

If you're for immigration reform you're for lower wages.

If you've ever had to beg your boss for a raise then you're one of the many who should be upset by immigration reform. Big businesses want to pay the lowest wage possible. Once immigration reform is passed the U.S. Job market will be flooded with people willing to work for a significantly lower wage. Don't hold your breath if you're expecting a raise at that time. You'll be lucky to keep your job. In an economy with unemployment as high as ours allowing more foreigners to become citizens is a recipe for disaster.  (Jun 20, 2014 | post #1)

Should state mandate immunizations? New requirements effe...

No they really aren't silly. Believe it or not there is 400 times the safe amount of mercury for a child in child hood vaccines. Pharmaceutical companies are some of the wealthiest companies in the world. And they just happen to be owned by the same handful of families who own all of the major news networks in the US.  (Jun 15, 2014 | post #9545)

Crystal Webb for Mayor?

A lot of people voted this election who know nothing about politics. She has a lot of friends and they voted just because she was running. And there's the fact that the vote was split so many ways. She got lucky.  (Jun 11, 2014 | post #20)

Crystal Webb for Mayor?

I don't know how many people know this but she changed her political officiating from Democrat to Republican so she could run as a Republican. She is a beer drinking cat fighting bar fly  (Jun 11, 2014 | post #19)

Our new mayor is actually a democrat. If you're at all political you might be surprised to hear that Newports new republican mayor was a democrat until she recently changed her political affiliation in order to run for office as a republican.  (Jun 11, 2014 | post #1)

2007 hate crime against whites in Knoxville

Racism is hate. I don't hate or judge anyone because the color of there skin. The point is that our corrupt media doesn't cover race crimes against whites on a national level if at all. The racemongers like All Sharpton want to give this impression that black people are hated and oppressed in America. There will always be some racism. But if you knew any real facts (not just what you watch on MSNBC) you'd know that there are 40% more hate crimes by blacks against whites in the US in the past ten years than black against white. Do you really believe that the Trayvon Martin trial deserved more media coverage than the horrendous rape and murders in Knoxville? Even the prosecution in the T Martin case claimed it was not a hate crime. It shouldn't have made national news at all.  (Aug 18, 2013 | post #4)

2007 hate crime against whites in Knoxville
