Didn't get to read the full story on the Knox News Sentinel, but it reads "Every time Bean Station Police Chief Andy Dossett drives past the lake access point along busy U.S. Highway 25E, he thinks of his city's only slaying." Only slaying??? Are you kidding me??? Donald Ferguson pops out LOUDLY in my mind...What was that not violent enough to be determined as a "Slaying".

I'm with "Go Andy"...I am sick of reading about poor ol' Karen Carpenter and her eyes being shot out. And yes Karma, I remember that...and the murder/suicide a few years back, i think in Poor Valley, and speaking of Poor Valley, didn't a man shoot his neighbor?

you are a ignorant person. to say that either he was right or wrong to kill an innocent unarmed man in his own home is sickening. sounds to me like you must be involved to want to quit talking about it. it's obvious that Campbell had help and until ALL the truth comes out the subject needs to be discussed. if it was a family member of yours i bet you anything you would not want the topic dropped. your a moron. they are others involved, you can count on that. what about the guy that was with him. he as far as i know has not been arrested. if you ask me , someone who helps murder someone, helps dispose of the murder weapon, helps steal the guys car and doesn't go to the authorities until they find him isn't a law abiding citizen. get your head out of the sand!

Ummm "Seeking Justice" I am pretty sure that Go Andy was referring to the Karen Carpenter deal...nothing posted has been about or referred to Campbell or Russel.

How could you tell anyone to drop any topic concerning the death or injury of another Human Being. Yes, if this was your family member God Forbid untill Justice is Served you would be wanting to talk about it and I'm sure Mrs. Carpenter (who I don't Know) is tired of not having eyes but she can't say "I'm tired of dealing with this everyday so let me just get over it" I'm mean really what kind of person are you and who forced you to read anything on Topix seriously have some empathy and compassion

Because I do know Karen Carpenter...And I have been in her families situation. And anyone doing meth and choosing Meth over their children....no...I wasn't on here defending my family member either. You choose to deal drugs, and make drugs and to sell drugs...then deal with the consequences.

i don't know about the rest of you but it is a bad thought to think that two of our bean station officers could not arrest a 90 pound woman with out shooting her what was it 6 times and twice in the head my gosh what chicken shits just hope next time it not you or one of your kids!! i think he should be fired before he shoot's somebody else because he is scared to death.
