First of all Sheriff Brown is working hard to solve the crime problem in Newton County. The Deputies I know have had no raise, no over time pay, employee retention a problem and higher cost of insurance. Not many people will put thier lives on the line for that. So if your not seeing a Patrol Car in your neighborhood dont blame the man. The idea of extending the distance of 350 yrds seems resonable if there is exemption's for hunting and ligitimate safe target shooting. But the thuggs and crime rate on one side of the county should not dictate the laws on the otherside of the county. Out of the volume of calls received on this issue how many times has the violater been contacted and cited for shooting within the 100 yrd ordinance? Why not two seperate ordinances?
What do you mean by getting productive? let me guess harass drivers and write citation's for minor traffic infraction, and stack traffic the court 50 to 70 people on court date like Porterdale? The Deputies I know work 12 hr shifts, often have 4 to 5 detailed reports that have to be completed, then have to appear in court often on their off days for comp time pay, Have to deal with Juveniles like you wouldnt believe, which require large amounts of, you guessed it paperwork and court time. Answer thousands of falls alarms. Endure few if any paid holidays, increasing health care cost, and no increase in pay for over four years. The Sheriff is doing the best he can with what he has to work with. In my opinion the employees have a right to be alittle disgruntled. The citizens complained to the Sheriff about the speeders on Almon road, a push to lower the limit was done, now you people complain about the Deputy writing you a citiation for speeding. So give this department a break your neve going to be happy no matter who the Sheriff is. Just call if you need law enforcement, just understand they cant solve all of your petty issues. Sounds to me the Deputies are staying PRODUCTIVE.
Fact is Obama has done a poor job and is in over his head. And for the sake of your own children's future he needs to go back to Chicago. I dare say to anyone if you voted for Hope and Change and you do it again," YOU DONT EVEN LOVE YOUR OWN CHILDREN". If you dont like Romney, Fine, he can go after four years.
And he is not going to. Some people are just to Stupid to realize that. If it were about voting for him because he's black, then there should have been overwhelming support for Herman Cain. A black man that would have went down in history as the one who truly made a positive impact in the African-American, Latino community's. But if your gay, in a union, have no identification or getting a goverment check for no real reason, or a PROGGRESIVE then Cain is not your man. Your just gonna have to get of that couch and stop watching the Liberial media.
Amen brother. WE ARE NOT STUPID!
Then vote Romney in and then out in four years. Most Americans dont like either choice. But you have to choose one. Obama's not it. A blind man can see this. As far as I'm concerned there isnt much Romney can say or do to change my vote. FACT is how can it get any worse? As far as Iran, its coming. Israel is not going to keep putting up with crap, and I dont blame them. Then we will see who our leaders support. Like the prime minister said, and I quote " We are not going back into the gas chambers". When it comes down to it its just the lesser of the two evils. A no vote is a vote for Obama. Beleive it or not but Obama could realy care less about you, he's just a fancy talker. He's counting on the gullible. Enjoy
Good article Mr Simpson maybe the next one should read 'How did we even get here" or
Watch what you ask for you might just get it. How stupid are you? Maybe, Hitler and Stalin were good guys they just had a personality issues. Are you smarter then a fith grader? My dady did'nt teach me better. Where is my check? Abortion as birth control and my preacher supports me. Shoot me or set a bomb I'm still your friend. Can't we all just get along. I will fight for your country even though you want. Never met a muslim I did'nt like. If his lips are moving he's lying. Lets keeping dumbing down Americans for the Democrat vote it's working. A fool and his freedom are soon parted. Like Herman Cain has said 'WE ARE NOT STUPID " God help us if this fool wins again.
inthemiddle, even though you blasted me you do bring up some valid issues. I know alot of the law enforcement in the area and for the most part they are hard working family men and women just trying to make ends meet. At the end of the day weather the uniform is brown or blue death could be just around the corner, a job that i couldnt do. I would like to say Watterson, Bradford and Brown are all respected and have different managment styles. Now its down to two. May best man win.
What a statement " You have got to be more tolerant to operate in a wider market" What a fool. I fully support Chick-fil-A. They are good people and a excellent role model for the community. I totaly agree with Dan Cathy. As for being homosexual its your choice but stay away from my kids its to much of a negative influnce, and why do you fill the need to bragg about your choice and get angry if someone dosent agree with you. Dan Cathy didnt say you couldnt have a sandwich.
Good to see that young man with his father showing him how to vote. I to took my son the other day for the first time. He already knows the similarties between the Socialist and the Liberal's , and he's only nine.
