Casey Jones on the left in this photograph next to the Chief Deputy Gerwig who lied to a grand jury about value of evidence in the famous "Travesty of Justice" case

Deputy Cason Jones has been suspended without pay while they stall for time and do no investigation on a horse play incident that turned out badly for Mrs Hess the wife of the assistant Fire Chief for Gilmer County!

If you actually think they will do an adequate investigation in Glenville, West Virginia you are asking a lot. Gilmer County and Glenville in particular are likely some of the most corrupt parts of West Virginia to ever come down the pike!

“The Gilmer County Sheriff specialty is to COVER UP crimes not investigate them, and where is Sheriff Metz when you need him?”

NO WHERE to be found certainly describes Mickey Metz when there is serious police work to do! He has been an absolute disgrace as a sheriff, as was proven by his refusal to even take the complaint, or accept evidence involving a criminal complaint of the infamous missing 1/6th of 155 acres of surface property in Gilmer County. That 1/6th title to property was needed as evidence in the only Gilmer County court case to go to the US Supreme Court  — Gerry Hough and the Gilmer County Sheriff presented a case that was based on a false value of evidence fabricated by Deputy Gerwig and Marilyn Matheny from Lemon Farm Equipment in Parkersburg during a grand jury hearing years ago.

A Taser Gun was used on the wife of  Gilmer County’s Martin Hess for what is described as horse play on a civilian!

Shown in photo is local fireman Martin Hess, it is reported that Deputy Cason Jones TAZED Martin Hess's wife with a Taser which is a serious weapon for law enforcement officers to use to subdue criminals.

Hess is a training officer with the Gilmer County Volunteer Fire Department.

This type of behavior is not conducive to professional conduct and Jones should be dismissed from the Sheriffs office or arrested for assault!

Here is what outraged citizens are saying about Sheriff Deputy Casey Jones!

“This same deputy, along with Jimmy Moss, transported me hundreds of miles in chains and in custody, on what turned out to be a false arrest on false charges with evidence Gerald B Hough paid a witness to lie about. I was arrested while attempting to report to my new afternoon drive radio show on KBED 102.9 FM.”

“I was picked up early in the day after Jones and Moss had stopped for beers and a steak dinner, but I WAS NEVER FED OR GIVEN WATER THAT WHOLE DAY in CUSTODY.”

“My bail had been $250,000.00 on facts that have all been proven false now. Once I got to WV…  B Minigh and B Martin were able to have me released in about an hour, but the prosecutors office had already talked to my employer Cumulus broadcasting and told them some tall tales about felony charges which were not only later defeated in court, but were false from the start. I was immediately fired from my job, and the charges were later proven false.”

“Jones needs to be arrested for assault and sent to prison.”

“They should both be punished for not feeding their prisoner, and for making a false arrest.”

Sheriff Metz needs to come clean on many issues. What is it about so much secrecy in this county? Looks to me an outside agency is needed to just police all the wrongdoings by some of the officials in Gilmer County and their absolute abuse of the power. How many crimes have happened under Metz watch and ignored by him over and over?

Comment by Wes  on  10.20.2011

This is great! Finally karma got to him! Hahahaha. How can Jones even be a Deputy? What an embarrassment to the department!

Comment by Random  on  10.20.2011

Mr. Jones should be charged with assault and negligence.  We should hope to see him in magistrate court real soon.  There are good people in this county and fellow law enforcement officer that get charged for crimes that are investigated by him.  Why should he be any different from all of the citizens here in this county.  A badge doesn’t give you right to do as you please with the power entrusted to you by the people of this county.  When given the power entrusted to you to carry a weapon and wear a badge you should do the right thing not the wrong thing.  What’s next horseplay with a gun?

Comment by anonymous  on  10.20.2011

SECRECY IS A WEAKNESS according to the article in the Gilmer Free Press where citizens are able to speak out on a mainstream Free Press media source!

The SS also received another readers reaction to all the articles in the Gilmer Free Press regarding the Travesty of Justice case heard in Gilmer County that made it all the way to US Supreme Court with false evidence brought by Gerry Hough and Gilmer County...

“I do grasp how exactly ridiculous the whole trial was.  I have always thought Hough and the Sheriffs office should both face some type of conspiracy charges to circumvent justice and perjury charges in the very least.  Bribery charges should be in there somewhere.  In this county or any other county in the US you couldn’t get that price for used equipment 24 yrs old unless it was at gunpoint.  I would love to know what in the name of all that corrupt bullshit was holier than thou Hough thinking he was doing?  It had to be a forced political action by someone who told him if he didn’t prosecute they would make him pay.  What a true Travesty of Justice.  As far as I’m concerned, No Justice, No Peace on that one, and they all got some bad shit coming.”

The Citizens of Gilmer County are getting sick and tired of public officials keeping things from them.  And more importantly these are usually issues that certainly do matter and certainly do affect or effect their lives in some way!

This type of mess has been going on in this county for years!

“And how about the kinky sex games played in this crooked little town down by the Crooked River? “

 “That’s how I knew you all were right all along!”

…someone said in a letter to the Secret Seven Coalition!

Citizens come clean with the SS, because we are not the cops, we actually do investigate.  I had heard it too many times about all the SEX PARTIES from the people who knew and found it exciting!  I always just shook my head and could hardly believe it even though it was true.

Gilmer County has long been known for it's WILD SEX PARTIES with rumors of wife swapping among the Power Elite!

Times have changed in Crooked County… It is now time to get the “Crooked” out of Gilmer County.

Years of conspiracy by Gerry Hough, Tim and R Terry Butcher, Beverly Marks, Sheriff Metz, Jean Butcher, Darrell Ramsey, Brian Kennedy, Judge Facemire, Tara Kennedy, Rosa Belle Gainer-Cunningham, Nasia Butcher, Ike Morris, Doug Morris, Doug Cottrill, Peter Barr, Larry Chapman, RETA KIGHT, JACK JONES Con Artist – And ALL the CROOKS and now newcomer Ron Blankenship and on and on…Oh yes!

“It is a rather large corruption ring that must be prosecuted!”

…someone said in a letter to the Secret Seven Coalition.

Citizens in Gilmer County are pretty much in shock now that they have found out the truth about GILMER HOUSING PARTNERS and the Crooked Commission Clerk Beverly Marks, and all the illegal activities, because they believed these people — especially their illiterate sheriff who seriously plans on being the next magistrate when Bob Minigh doesn’t run next term.

 “Some citizens now say they will vote these self serving public officials out as it comes up for sure!”

Time will tell and as you know money talks and BS  walks.  How many will be sucked into the I’ll take care of you mentality is hard to tell but the Secret Seven Coalition has hope.  There is no denying it now but that won’t stop until those who realize how bad the deal was start talking back to those calling it a lie.  I believe that is beginning to happen now thanks to the citizens finding out the truth!

“Unfortunately, we won’t really know until the vote shows the people prizing honesty over the con.  That is …if we can even get a legally run election given all the Crooks in Crooked County that live down by the Crooked River!”

You should know old country boy Mickey METZ has never been innocent; Metz has yet to really show us his true color of black, he has proved through court cases not to be honest and his cover up of court evidence in the Travesty case is proof enough.

Gerry Hough was named President of the WV Counties association earlier this year, that was until it came to their attention how much bad publicity Gerry Hough was getting from all the criminal wrongdoing involving the Gilmer County Prosecutors office. Now he is listed as past president with no explanation.

Just guess how it’s going to be when they try to push Metz in for magistrate and try to get Carol Wolfe out by also running Clarissa Ferrell, Gerry Hough’s secretary after SS member Stacey Harlow was fired. You can bet  HOUGH is running to Bob Minigh singing the blues about the truth he paid someone to lie in a big felony case the WV Record reported on.  Bob considers him a personal friend but Hough just won’t listen to him.  Hough’s own people have been his downfall as everyone well knows and Gerald B Hough just won’t accept that he has created his own devil.

“This CROOKED COUNTY is going to have some of the most illiterate and controlled robots in its legal system than they have seen for a while if they succeed!”

But I hear thru the leader of the Gilmer County Underground that there is rumble spreading down the hill that people are starting to believe that Gerry Hough truly is guilty of all he has been accused of in the West Virginia Record lately – and all of that information is working against him more.

Shelly DeMarino is telling everyone she will not run for prosecutor of Gilmer County (You know she is supposed to be very close friends with Hough’s wife Tamara Stalnaker) and so the next logical candidate they will run could be a Butcher. OH PLEASE!!

However, all of the TRUTH published by the SS of Central WV about the Butchers has worked against them and is making that situation unlikely in the future if there is a challenger.

Lizzie Butcher - half of the Butcher Bitches team with her signature caution sign around her head knows how to party down in the Crooked County town known as the "Ville"

The question is:  Who else can they run?

We sure can’t deal with anymore shenanigans from Gerry Hough!

The Secret Seven Coalition and Gilmer County Concerned Citizens have  no problem with rightful prosecution based on the law and not personal vendettas.

Lets still hope the voters take care of those that may not be prosecuted but are the “legal” thieves that don’t get caught or get their way bought out to protect the thieves behind them.  Seems that is the only way this county will ever get representation they deserve.  The problem is they seem to perceive they can get something for nothing if they just go along with them.  They can’t get it that someone who breaks the law for you is not doing you a favor.  Just setting you up for the fall that will come when and if they are caught.

The FACTS OF THE MATTER ARE the circuit court is running the county clerk’s office which means they will (as they always have) keep control of the votes that are counted. Mickey Metz still plans on running for Magistrate so he has told his people to hush or be fired.  Since the regular courthouse employees serve at the will and pleasure of the elected officials this is not an idle threat unless the employee has a connection with a block of voters.

“Any whistle blower,  will be dealt with severely or maybe even shot with a Taser by Deputy Casey Jones!”

Casey Jones driving that train high on Cocaine, better watch your speed!

HE IS on the WRONG TRACK and headed for you!

  1. For those that need further clarification as to what a TASER is…

    A Taser is an electroshock weapon that uses electrical current to disrupt voluntary control of muscles. Its manufacturer, Taser International, calls the effects “neuromuscular incapacitation”[1] and the devices’ mechanism “Electro-Muscular Disruption (EMD) technology”.[2] Someone struck by a Taser experiences stimulation of his or her sensory nerves and motor nerves, resulting in strong involuntary muscle contractions

    Tasers were introduced as non-lethal weapons to be used by police to subdue fleeing, belligerent, or potentially dangerous subjects, who would have otherwise been subjected to what they consider more lethal weapons (such as a firearm)

    Stun gun manufacturers have rolled out new devices that promise to “drop everyone in a given area to the ground” A Taser machine gun of sorts … we hear Sheriff Metz wants one. Maybe he is expecting a rebellion and he let Casey try out the new stuff on the wife of the Asst Fire Chief.

  2. Anonymous Citizen of the Ville

    That looks like the boyfriend of Carly Hough on the left with the blond back in the day when she was a pass around at TKE. If you are serious about some phone photos, I could send a few.

    Editors note: We get most of our good Butcher stuff from Gary Collins backwoods back room lock box of Gilmer County recorded in pictures. Every time you open it the Disney theme plays and fireworks are displayed, oh wait a minute, that is when Carly Hough pulls her panties to the side, that’s right!

  3. Concerned Citizens SPEAK OUT about BEST WESTERN saying SO LONG CROOKED COUNTY!!

    G-Biz™: Clarification on Best Western Hotel Report
    as published by the Gilmer Free Press

    There is a report in the local newspaper that the Hotel on WV Hwy 5 E in Glenville is no longer a Best Western.

    Here is the clarification and the real facts:

    The owners of the Best Western Glenville Inn chose not to renew their membership for 2012 with Best Western International last summer.

    However, the current membership with Best Western International has not expired.

    When it expires the hotel becomes Glenville Inn, a locally owned and operated hotel.

    “In the current economy, it has become too costly to maintain the Best Western name and this was a necessary business decision. We will continue to offer the same quality service our guests have come to expect when they visit Glenville.”
    GFP – 10.20.2011

    ~~~ Readers’ Comments ~~~

    The owners are complimented for the clarification. If more Gilmer parties would responds to citizen’s concerns maybe we would learn that there are two sides to issues to help lessen controversy. When there is a failure to respond to concerns that tends to cause citizens to conclude that negative reports are true. For an example, did the partners receive State economic development funds to build the motel facility as commonly believed? If State money was received, how much was it, what is the proof that politics and preferential treatment were not involved to get the money, and if money was received was there any excess left for the partners after construction costs for the facility were paid?
    By Harold Black on 10.20.2011

    This is another example of the slow downward slide for Gilmer County. Like the decision to close down U-Pak, money talks. If the owners don’t make enough money, then something changes. Sadly that has resulted in ongoing losses of businesses for Gilmer County.

    The continual changes in management of the Best Western associated restaurant is another example. As the population continues to drop, expect to see more empty store fronts.

    We’ve seen an auto parts store, pizza shop, internet consultancy, Radio Shack, etc. leave within recent memory. Word of mouth had it that the owners of the Pizza Hut franchise thought long and hard before renovating after the last flood.

    Are we past the point of no return with less than 7,000 people in the county?

    The business incubator started by the college is a long needed support organization. Is it too late? With the continuing population drop in the county, where will the customers for those businesses come from?
    By anon on 10.20.2011

    It has never been about little business in Gilmer County. It has always been about them. As long as they can benefit from government any way they can it is OK.
    Chapman in his positions has always facilitated the abuse by the elite at the expense of the little guys.
    Chapman has actually taken business from within the county to other places.
    Why do you think he keep wanting to be involved with GCEDA?
    It is so sad seeing the unpaid people in GCEDA go along with him while Chapman is cashing in and they are not making a dime.
    One has to be really stupid to listen to a word Chapman has to say.
    Let Larry Chapman tell us about one thing he has done to improve the economic conditions in this county? He always tries to take credit for the risk small businesses have taken while he had nothing to do with it.
    GCEDA and Chapman have been a disgrace to Gilmer County.

Headed up hwy 33 though it don’t mean that much to me, Pat Ward a self described manager at Waco Oil and Ass said it was OK — and that we could join the party at Doug Morris’s house and it’s time to play!! COCAINE just in from FLA and all the good green can be found up there today. FRIDAY IS ALRIGHT In Morris town USA …if ya got friends!

  5. Council of Concerned Citizens - Citizens speaks out about CRIMINAL PUBLIC OFFICIALS!

    Where is our local elected Lawyer Hough in this outrage?
    Maybe fixing to blow off any charges that might appear?
    Horse play? Nonsense. Man on woman its domestic violence. Domestic violence does not have to
    be between married spouses. Oh wait. Can’t do that deal.
    Poor deputy wouldn’t be allowed to carry a gun? That would be a bad thing?
    Or maybe, it would be the ‘right’ thing??
    We have one recent unsolved murder in the community? Don’t think we want another?
    If we do have someone come missing, do we know where to look first now?
    If there is no arrest, no serious penalty for this dumb **it attack,
    what comes next?
    Sheriff Metz, are you going to can the problem?
    Afraid of another lawsuit?
    So, if there is nothing wrong with this, where can I get a tazer?
    I want to horse play too.

    To Grumpy:
    I think it is funny that you said you get so tired of reading about all the bickering and foolishness that is happening in Gilmer County. It doesn’t matter what it is about. Well, you did not read any of it in the Glenville Democrat that is for sure, because they don’t print any negative things about all of the problems that the people in this county are facing, because the owner/editor is “friends with and paid for” by the “elite”. So …… that means you are reading it on GFP and if it upsets you just stop reading it. Simple solution. If it were not for the GFP publishing what comments people write about and what all is going on, we would not know it either.
    They certainly did not want us to find out about all the dirty work they are doing. But, we are now aware of the “power” and who is involved in destroying this town and how it is destroying our county piece by piece, inch by inch and breaking many hearts. And I guess you would not have to tell anyone you are from Gilmer County so that is another solution to your problem. Money, “the elite” greed, power, control, friends in high places, Politics, law officials, and our State officials are the reasons we all write about these things to try to get this mess in our town corrected. We are not careless people as you said, we do have our heads on straight and in the right place and if this town is becoming less desirable to live in, there is a solution to that also. The solutions I wrote to you are much easier than the solutions that the good people of this county are facing.

    Comment by Simple solutions on 10.21.2011

    How about the sexual “horseplay” number 7 from the GSC Football team Gabe Phrophet was able to have with a local girl, with no obvious consequence.
    Phrophet has had to face NO COURT CONSEQUENCE after an alleged rape in which the victim said she, “WAS AFRAID FOR HER LIFE THROUGH THE WHOLE ORDEAL!!“
    This should be the last crime covered up in Glenville and Hough should be run out of town for his performance. Hough paid for the transportation of a false witness to come all the way from FLORIDA and then pays her to lie on a case which turns out to be fabricated by the Sheriffs office and Hough, but they can’t bring a rapist to court? A dangerous rapist! Hough is the real criminal and so is NO FOUL PLAY Mickey Metz!
    You can believe nothing will happen to Casey Jones and as soon as we stop talking about it, that will be the end of it.
    Enough is enough it is time to get rid of Hough and wash our hands of Mickey Metz forever!

  6. Concerned Citizens SPEAK OUT about ... Is Taser Gun a Dangerous Weapon?

    Gilmer Free Press, I am very disappointed in your reporting. You are leading your readers away from the truth, not to it. Consequently, you are damaging the reputation of law enforcement officers who try to do their jobs and have done good things in this community.
    Hopefully, there are some Gilmer Free Press readers who know Deputy Jones, and others that he works with, would not inflict unnecessary suffering on civilians by using a taser gun in the manner you have portrayed in your recent video postings.
    I was shocked recently to learn the negative opinion that some people have about Gilmer Free Press. I had viewed GFP as a way of finding out news and announcements that were helpful to me in my daily life. After your reporting of this story, I no longer feel that way, and I will now question the validity of any news that I read here.

    From the entry: ‘G-FYI™: Is Taser Gun a Dangerous Weapon?’.
    Its sad that, that comment by sad and for sad was so sad since the argument brought by sad was sadly lacking in any facts, just opinion.
    What is sad is what Jones has already gotten away with by not feeding a prisoner while responsible for transporting a prisoner from another state. No food, no water, and on felony charges brought that turned out to be based on paid for evidence and ALL OF THIS DONE KNOWINGLY!
    You would at least give a dog water, and maybe some food. Instead Jones and Moss both stopped for steak dinner and some beers before picking up their prisoner. Jones had alcohol on his breath while picking up his prisoner on duty and now that is sad!
    The reporting by GFP was accurate and truthful and there was NO REPORT by the local paper. The FREE PRESS is the only real press and sadly sad I saw right through your comment. Sad, I am seeing through you and so what do you know besides opinion without fact?

    As a law enforcement officer I’ve have personally asked a Gilmer County Sheriffs Officer if he has had any training using a taser gun and if he as ever been tased by one and his response was no.

    Call the couple who used to operate the small store in Sand Fork and ask them if Deputy Jones ever handcuffed any of their female customers in their place of business. I will bet they will remember it!

    I will wager that more of this unprofessional behavior will come to the surface, now that people are aware of the situation.

    One cannot help but think about someone being childish, immature, and irresponsible, while being paid with our tax dollars. And carrying guns too!

    And his boss, Sheriff Metz, and the County Commissioners letting their employee get away with. Will it continue?

    Do you feel safer knowing we are paying law enforcement to act in this fashion?

    Bring in the state police and the FBI someone give us justice. If it would have been a commoner, there would be arrests and indictments. We all make mistakes but follow the track record of the Sheriffs dept? Follow it. Its a downfall to the safety of the county. Glad new folks are running.

    TO SAD:
    I would like to tell you that I do not believe The Gilmer Free Press is misleading people about anything. I personally have written articles to GFP to see if they were true and Mr. Ramezan would not publish it until he checked it out to find out for himself if it was or wasn’t true. If it was, he printed it, if it wasn’t he did not print it. I think this shows a very responsible journalist that wants it done right. I’m sorry I cannot say the same about the other news source in this county. But…I believe in telling it like it is, no sugar coating. I think the best thing would be for you to check with Mr. Hess to see if the tazer incident involving a Gilmer County Deputy is true and if it is not, I am sure a retraction would be printed by the GFP and also if it is not true, you should notify the weekly paper to print an order for all the people to stop talking about it. IF this incident is true, you will still not see it in the weekly paper. I think the reputation of this officer has been damaged a few times before “this” problem. Yes, readers do know of the person in question and also know of the work done by the other officers, or lack thereof. The ones who should be arrested and punished walk scot free due to power control in the Sheriff’s
    office, the Prosecutors office, GSC, two particular lawyers in this little town and the power, control, money and greed of the “elite”.
    As to you saying you were shocked at the negative opinions that some people have of The Gilmer Free Press. Uh… did these people happen to be some of the elite, or some of the people controlled by them or associate with them? With all the corruption, crimes that are covered up by them and the control they have in the School System do you really think they would have anything positive to say about GFP. After all, it is the GFP where “we” the good citizens of this county can air our concerns, fears and frustration as to how the powers have destroyed and broken hearts of many people. If you do not feel what is written on the GFP, is true “DON’T READ IT. Simple. This is just ONE example of the MESS this county is in.

  7. According to the Barbour County Circuit Clerk Sarah Rutherford from GLENVILLE STATE COLLEGE was indicted yesterday along with 19 other people in Barbour County and will be on trial for sexual trysts with two of her high school students.Sarah dated friends of ours, and one of her boyfriends’ dad,Bob Henry Baber who ran for Governor. Sarah also dated some babes from her class, and then got some of that ass as well, but now it is the hell of trial by jury and she ain’t in Gilmer County now, so it will be harder to rig the case. If this was a Crooked County case the girl would get released with just a couple of blow jobs to Judge Facemire or Gerry Hough and that would be enough to get off!

    9am 26 OCT Arraignment for Sarah Rutherford will be held!
    Follow the link in green above for more info…

    “The defendant told the victim not to tell anyone about the sexual intercourse because they could get in trouble since she was a teacher and the victim was a student,” the complaint states.
    “Unless of course, you are in Gilmer County.”

  8. Sarah Rutherford, a 24 year old high school teacher and daughter to long time GSC Secretary Joann Rutherford, is right now at this very minute in a Barbour County Court room facing a felony charge involving sexual misconduct with two of her high school students.

    According to this live report, just minutes ago, a circuit court judge asked Rutherford how she pleads to the charges of having sex and doing drugs with two of her high school students and she just spoke, Sarah Rutherford just pled…

    “NOT GUILTY YOUR HONOR … in Gilmer County that’s how we always do it!”

    This has been a live report by your RGW reporter from the Barbour County Courtroom!


    I have known Casey for a few years now and I think they way some of you are treating him is ridiculous. For as long as I’ve known him he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. From my understanding Mr. Hess is the one raising all the fuss. I have heard that Casey and Mr. Hess’s significant other have joked around with one another for quite sometime. I don’t hear her crying foul. I also heard that he did remove the cartridge so it would not apply the full effect. I do believe this was not been the best choice for a joke, but I also think this is being blown out of proportion. Gilmer has bigger problems to worry about such as, GSC football players terrorizing the town and an un-solved murder that has erie ties to a person of authority.
    This was a lack of judgment on Casey’s behalf. I am sure he would do something different if he were to get a do over. As I said before, he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.

    Using a taser is not horseplay, it is dangerous.
    If he will play with a weapon while on duty and at a community function, how can this community be safe from our own law enforcement officers? I for one feel he needs to be dismissed and charged with assault. If he is allowed back on the force, I will not stop for him, instead I will call 911 and inform them that Deputy Jones is trying to pull me over, I am not attempting to flee, but fear for my safety and am proceeding to the nearest state police station for assistance, I urge everyone else to due the same. I ask our Sheriff and the County Commissioners do their job to protect the citizens of Gilmer County and fire Deputy Jones. Or better yet, Casey why don’t you man up and resign, you have proven time and time again that you are not mature enough to handle the job as a deputy, you have used your job to settle personal problems, you are a disgrace to Gilmer County and the force, resign and do us all a favor.

    From the entry: ‘CommunityConcerns™: Horse Play on Civilian with a Taser Gun by a Sheriff Deputy’.
    In response to the past GSC grad comment about Casey and the way people are treating him is ridiculous. As far as him giving you the shirt off of his back this may very well be true. But it does not justify his actions and stupidity in this matter. Maybe Mr. Hess’s wife and Casey did often joke around with each other so what, and if it is true that Mr. Hess is the one raising a fuss about this, so what? He is the husband of the woman that was tazed. What do you expect him to do? He is standing up for his wife and that is what he should do. Maybe, Mr. Hess is less likely to lose his cool than her, or maybe she is more apt to be the one to lose her cool than her husband, so whoever is making the fuss it does not matter. What makes the difference is this needed to be brought out before it happened again to someone else and may have been a worse situation than this, which was totally uncalled for anyway. I do not see this as a “joke” by any stretch of the imagination. If Casey did remove the cartridge so as to have a lesser effect, this tells me he had planned to taze her from the beginning. What if she had heart problems and he tazed her and caused death? Blown out of proportion, not in my opinion. It could have had a much more severe, perhaps tragic outcome. This tazer weapon is not a toy; it is dangerous in the wrong hands. The stupidity of this officer is a danger to the ones who he swore to protect. This is not the first incident with this officer, but people in this county certainly hope it will be the last one. Enough is enough and I think he should be held accountable for his actions, but as you and I know, that won’t happen in Gilmer County. I agree there are many other problems in this county that needs addressed and because of who, what, where, why and when, these problems will pass right over the heads of the ones that should take care of things like this. Again, we are living in Gilmer County and that seems to be the way they do things here. The people of this county deserves better than what we are getting. Our hard earned taxpayer money at work. Sad but true.

    Exactly! If Jones took the cartridge out and zapped the girl, then it was not an accident. He knew what he was doing.
    Mr. Jones’s behavior has been worse than what you expect from a little kid. He is not mature enough to be put back on streets. Since Sheriff Metz is not doing anything about, he may just give him the assignment to solve Fred Hill’s Mystery. Of course without any types of weapon.

    I do not condone what he did by any means, I am just saying that it was poor judgment call on his behalf. He made a decision without thinking of the outcome. How many of us have done that I ask? I know I have. I myself would not have reacted the way Mr. Hess did, but that’s just me. Sticking up for your wife is one thing, but shouldn’t one also consider what the wife wanted done in the first place. If there was a history of horseplay between the two then obviously to me Casey’s intentions were not to hurt her. Mr. Hess should have dealt with Casey on 1 to 1 basis and not through the public. I don’t condone what happen, I just think this is making a mountain out of a mole hill.

    As Gomer Pyles says, SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE.
    Just read the Glenville Democrat and it actually has the story of Casey Jones and the taser incident and on the front page too. Can you believe it??
    Deputy Jones is on a two week suspension without pay and is to report back
    to work Wed. Nov. 2, 2011. Yup, still has a job in the Sheriff’s Dept.
    No other charges, no other punishment, and for the good people of this
    county, NO JUSTICE. “ONLY IN GILMER COUNTY” good citizens, “ONLY IN GILMER

    From the entry: ‘G-FYI™: Is a Taser Gun merely an extension of Casey Jones dick and the horseplay was only a reflection of how many times Jones had sex with the wife of the assistant Fire Chief?
