Sheriff Burns, deputies have local support


Do you think that the Times writing a longer article will make people think that you hate the sheriff more? What is the purpose of this type of journalism?

OK, so Sheriff Burns has had some issues with his people. But tell me, is he the only one that has had issues with his people? I think not.

Maybe it is time to clean house all around. Let’s look at the top of the county down. It is obvious there is a terrible dislike of Sheriff Burns.

Is it because he is able to speak his mind and makes comments that others do not like? Is it because he has been able to be elected by people who like him? I say grow up and learn to work together.

Do you think he would like to do things that make us unsafe? Do you think he was happy that some of his people had issues?

I think it is time that we need to say what is he doing right. His members seem to be getting people who are speeding and driving under the influence.

He makes a change where workers are able to work better shifts. His members seem to be liked in the community. He has been trying to make things better for the community in the area of safety and protection.

Seems like when they have been involved in things, the district attorney’s office was able to get the guilty off the streets. Must be the people did a good job!

So now we tell him that he cannot have two more deputies to assist. Well, I hope that no one of importance here in the county needs assistance because those deputies may just be out playing dodge ball and drinking, ignoring the streets and roads of Jefferson County.
