If his First Amendment rights were violated why is Ronnie walking the streets I was told this Federal and Ronnie should have been arrested. Can someone clear this up for me. If he needs to be arrest why has that not been done yet?

Dishman is FULL OF IT...... it is stated in his lawsuit he was fired because he was wearing a Mahoney shirt as he went in to vote, This is not true because he CAN NOT VOTE IN SEQUATCHIE county because he lives in BLEDSOE county and had almost a year prior. The truth will come out. He should of been fired a long time before he was. He never did his job and was a lousy Lieutenant, he accepted the pay but never did the job. He claimed he wanted to continue in law enforcement, doe he think any agency will touch him now? I think not!

No one is permitted to wear anything political in to vote. That includes a t-shirt, hat, sticker, button, etc. If anyone has that on, he/she is asked to turn it inside out or go change. This is an interesting story.

Seems like this is true. Those working the poles have to cover up their shirts, etc. I bet there's more to this story.

Havent yall figured out the sheriffs office has done this for years as the city. I really dont think they know what the constitution is or civil rights are and for dishman not doing maintenance on his vehicle as people are saying its hard to point a finger when a large percent of the police cars or sheriffs dept cars the tag lights dont work, arent deputys supposed to check out the cars before taking them out and make sure all lights work. Isnt that a [ticket offence]? GO DISHMAN

It is the deputy's place to check the car out. I guess he didn't check his out so well. GO SHERIFF

Yep a civil right violation would cost more than a tune up. Did the Higdon dude that stole from Soddy get the job?

I really didnt hear about that one so I cant comment to much but what is going on with the judical system why do we have police on the force that break the law, like one I heard of was where an officer with the city was charged with Rape and only got a two weeks vacation. Whats up with that!

Not all the deputies in the department are corrupt. There are a few good and decent ones. Those are the ones that will never get anywhere until things change!

Well I know for a fact that Marlin Hobbs is NOT one of the good ones... he likes beating on young girls... and a few others like to try to push people until they can get a reaction from them so they can make an arrest.

Was Ronnie allowed in the election office at night? Was he investigating a crime?
