festus, it is obvious you have forgotten what the sheriff's department was like before Mike Atkinson was elected. It would appear you have an axe to grind.
We all remember what the sheriffs department looked like before the current administration. All will agree it has improved. However, you need to remember that we all were able to "see" what that department looked like (on the inside) and how it acted, much do to with a media blitz over all the negative issues. I do not think you'll see any negative issue brought forward to the media (if there are any). All elected offices need to be carefully keep in check. It is up to the public to do this and a discussion over the radio system is a good start.
