Why is it seems like they are just looking for reason to pull somebody over?

That's basically all their law enforcement training requires is to keep pulling people over and using the speed cameras to generate revenue since the time they refused to give Food City a beer license. Food City moved to Church Hill and that hurt Mt Carmel quite a bit.

Don't get me wrong though, Mt Carmel officers were just as bad when Food City was located in the shopping center. I remember getting a ticket for doing 27 mph in a 20 mph zone. Wow, 27 mph is so fast and dangerous.

Best thing to do is kick them where it hurts the most. Don't speed and always wear your safety belts and make sure your tags are up to date and all the lights, signal lights are in working order.

Mt.Carmel is a joke they keep on screwing the residents over and over time after time. Mt.Carmel makes Surgoinsville look like New York city.

If someone has an order of protection and its violated then someone supposed to go to jail. But not in Mt. Carmel. I guess its according to who you are and how much money you have. The truth will come out .

they dont have cops....at least any with a backbone, that I have seen!!! they use traffic cameras to generate revenue and refrain from pulling over people on 11w...I guess if I were too spineless to do my job, I would let a camera and the post office do it for me too... a ticket a week later does nothing for public safety.... low life is all I have to say about these punks!!!! and I do have the utmost respect for a police officer that will actually do their job... not in this town...

You realize that individual police officers have no say in if a city uses speed cameras right? It's usually the city council who makes the final call on something like that. You mook.

But they do make a decision in the field on whether to arrest someone or not who's violated an order of protection.

I saw a video from the local news with the police boy that reviews the videos and sends out the tickets...he looked like he enjoyed it...so I am guessing they have some say...

Well Well the mayor has hired David Dean what a good mistake he has done by doing that. With a back ground that he has padding his time sheet then had to pay it back is that the kind of policeman that any town need. He just got fired from Bean Station and also was fired from Mt.Carmel, North East state, Hawkins county

Why do we need that kind? Compaign promise from the mayor
