Here is one of several links where you can report public corruption (see below).

This include corruption committed by the police, the D.A.'s office, the courts, and any other public office in Roane County. Check out this website in the link below and report em. One of the main places they say that corruption takes place is the local Sheriff's Department and in the courts.

Report em!

Any kind of this corruption look familiar to anyone in Roane in recent years (see two links below)?

If so, help is coming to the Eastern District of TN.
You might want to call the Associated Press and report any corruption like we've seen in Knoxville, and what cops did in Louisiana.

Corrupt cops and Judges do go to jail! Not an easy task in TN with the good-ole-boys, but the tide is turning and the national media is staring to look at what is going on here. The state is going to be forced to do something about this because the good ole days for the good ole boys is over. This is costing tax payers on the state and federal level far too much money! Not to mention it make you want to puke! The embarrassment to the state is also a factor to consider that might cause higher officials to finally do something.

You are insane. Everywhere I look on this site it is "corruption" and "crooked cops." You have so much proof that this town, this state rather, is corrupt and yet nothing has been done to these people you claim are involved. I have a hard time believing you know as much as you say you do. Second, you do realize you have been harping on this subject for nearly a year. I cannot believe that you are so concerned about the other residents in this county that you have built up your own little case in your make believe judicial system in your head and plan to do something about it. I mean, you haven't yet, obviously. There is an underlying factor here. I'm sure some pill head junkie that you associate with has been in trouble just like the rest of the people that get on here and bash about our law enforcement. But then comes Mr. Lowlife to take your property or maybe you have a wreck. Who do YOU call? Surely you, the same one bitching about the cops, don't call 911 for help... hmmm

I apologize for the confusion. My post wasn't really directed toward you. More to someone else that has been all over this site continuously saying they were going to expose this corruption that consumes Roane County, among other things that were said that I do not agree with and know better in some cases. Again, sorry about that.

The locals know all it... even some of their family members co-workers are talking about it to others, including outside the community. People have been talking about it for many years, and people have been very tired of it for a very long time.

Election time will cause even more discussions about it, and truths will be revealed. Some people will be voted out of office because of it. And somebody on "here" seems to be a little worried about that.

We citizens need to keep an eye on that voter fraud.... cause some around here can't afford to lose their power. That would make it harder to cover up a lot of stuff up that has been going on.

Anyone on here want to disagree with these statements, feel free. We know who you are.

If you are a snitch, you can get by with anything. Same goes if the lady's family member was murdered. If a snitch did it, well they get by with it. Now you need to respect the law in Roane and shut up about this kind of stuff. And on one needs to come on here and talk about any corruption, cause don't you all know that there is NO corruption in Roane and never has been! The law is perfect in Roane County.

Nobody says the police in roane county dont answer emergency calls, heck, these cowboys love to chase down bank robbers, sppedding felons and other lawbreakers they knew in high school. Yes they respond to wrecks, it gives them somethnig to do other that sit at the donut shop all night.

the problem is that if one of these police officers makesd a mistake, breaks the law or otherwise goes off the reservation a whiole corrupt machine goes into action designed to protect that officers elected or appointed supervisors from action.

These podunk departments like harriman and Kingston go through a lot of officers. They hire them on at low pay with practically no traiing except what they got in the Army. Now if most of their jobs was clearing terrorist out of mudhuts Roane county would have a gret "law enfiorcement" reputation.

Unfortuantely, most of a police officers job is interacting with the public and of course, not being a crook himself. If police officers in Roane county were hired for their law enforcement skills the county wouldn't have such a bad reputation.

Whats amazing is that criminal justice schools all over the state and the country turn out qualifeid officers every semester but they don't have a chance of getting hired in Roane county unless they are billy bobs brother or donated to the sheriff's campaign.

So when people complain about law enforcement in Roane county, they do have something to complain about. if they really wanted to change things more people would get an vote.

the problem is that

I agree with alot of what you said, especially this part...

"the problem is that if one of these police officers makesd a mistake, breaks the law or otherwise goes off the reservation a whiole corrupt machine goes into action designed to protect that officers elected or appointed supervisors from action."

The same holds true for all the others. The corrupt cops cover-up for them too. People suffer because of the corruption you spoke about. It's a corrupt good ole boy system in Roane.

Roane County isn't the only county where there is a lot of corruption, not the only county where the "snitches" are treated like they are "law abiding pillars of the community" and the honest hard working citizens are treated like THEY are the criminals. I think that you are speaking about Tennessee, but West Virginia has MORE than it's fair share of corruption as well. Especially the smaller counties like Ritchie, Dodrige County, Wirt County, Calhoun County, among others. I know that people are stopped for "speeding",(although they may have been but most of the time they are not) and then they are given a cell phone number and they are told that "if they give them information about a drug dealer, or the name of someone who buys from one, they will make the ticket disappear"...... I can't imagine how many people that "illegal and immoral" act has gotten hurt or killed. Even telling them that you don't know anyone because you don't do drugs will not sway them from pushing someone into such an act and trying to DO THEIR JOBS FOR THEM !!!! They get paid to investigate people, not harass young kids into putting themselves and their families at risk. I have not had this happen to me personally, but it did happen to someone I love and that person still has the card with the "personal" cell phone number on it, although they paid the ticket and they paid the court costs (which is highway robbery alone). The only reason they still have the card is because it will come in handy when filing a complaint of harassment and corruption the next time this happens to them or to someone close to them be it a family member or a friend. It's a shame that people are having to pay for bogus tickets because there is so much corruption it's like a cancer. I imagine it's like this everywhere, but there are some honest and decent officers, they are just rare and there number is much smaller than the average citizen realizes.
