You know I've known Alred for many years and he's always been fair. I think all of this is just a bunch of trumped up stuff to make him the scapegoat for everything else going on. I mean if everyone can put the negative light on him it will get it off of them. Makes sense doesn't it. I'll stick by Alred. He's always got my vote. SJ

Judge Alred's record clearly speaks for it's self. His reputation tainted by his own doings. A vote for Alred will be a vote for more of the same, bribery's, payoffs and back room deals. Corruption does not go away just because we choose to ignore it.

Is Melvin one of the ones trying to ruin Judge Alred? I hope everything turns out okay for Alred I believe he only wants what's good for Harlan County and the youth. He is a good person as wel as a good judge.

When Alred locked the Commonwealth's Attorney and the Sheriff out of the courthouse, it lowered my opinion of him considerably. It was such blatant temper throwing, childish behavior that I was embarassed for the man. To me, it kind of clued us in on the true character of him. He may care about the people of Harlan and really want to make a difference but his underhanded shananigens, whether for the good of the people or not, have cost Harlan County. People already think we're a bunch of ignorant drugged out backwoods rednecks without our circuit judge being splattered across the news for 20 counts misconduct.

Thats not why people think that.Its not because of a judge who cared to make a difference and make it better!Maybe he is guilty of one thing :trying too hard to make things better !

You could be right, goodpeople. I don't know Alred personally so I couldn't say. He could be a very caring, good individual. But just from I've read, seen on the news and heard around town, the way he tries to "help" has been alittle less judicial and alittle more shady than necessary. My personal opinion of him, based on what I've heard and seen thus far, is that he seems to be a spoiled, egotistical man who throws hissy fits when he doesn't get his way and uses his influence in ways that are unsavory in a judge. I remember when he first took the bench in circuit court and I enjoyed watching him on CCTV, thought he did a good job for the most part. I liked him. Alot. Although even then I knew the spontaneous drug testing was going to be a problem for him if it ever came to the right person's attention. And believe me, I don't want him to be bad, we need good, caring people in office around here, so I hope I'm wrong about him. My question is why could he not still do his job without bending the rules for certain people and overstepping his bounds?

I personally don't think to much of him as a man or a judge! He thinks he's god! If you don't kiss his a$$ he will put you in jail. I bet since he has been in office he has locked up 70 percent of this county. If that is his way of helping people then We don't need his help! I knew he was in trouble when he started drug testing people that came to court and the people who brought them! That blew my mind. But I think our sheriff is just as bad if not worse than alred so the way I see it we don't have a chance!

Probably needed to put 70 percent of the county in jail . I read in the paper about a woman up in blackstar who wrecked while high on pills and killed a young child and it never went to trial so I feel he was a bit soft on criminals.medication is not supposed to be taken while operating a motor vehicle in this case it lead to the death of a baby .I can't remember if the child was a boy or girl?I know I read this in our local paper .This was a gross misjustice of the law.this case was swept under the rug. Good sheriff my a s s he was supposed to have had an affair that almost caused a killing somewhere between the courthouse and the school.did he hide a woman in the school?

Alred abused the law and he has destroyed the families of this county. People who gets caught selling for the first time is getting 5 years in jail and if you write bad checks on people or beat the he'll out of someone judge alred gives you probation. Dam people the doctors are scared to write people a script of something that will help them so I don't blame anyone that goes to a dealer for help and no I'm no dealer or user I just see this county is ran like a communist country. If these Arab doctors would write people meds that they need I promise you the drug dealing would slow down . But as long as we got a sheriff that threatens our doctors were not going no where. It's so sad people have to go out of state for health care! Bunch of communist.!!!
