The only difference in a 2012 Model Bushmaster Ar-15 top of the line Assault Rifle as they are called & a Semi Automatic .223 remington built in 1950 is the plastic trim to make it look like a machine gun, a Assault Weapon is a style or term to identify a look, it fires no different than the semi auto your grand pa used when he was 10 to kill his first deer with back when Hoover was in office. The Liberal Media is the biggest problem with guns in America, you are unimformed about guns & anyone who does know guns can read right thru your anti-gun messege. I hope Mr. Cook never needs a gun with 3 or 4 rounds in the chamber, as most gangs run in packs but I am sure he can defend himself with the old singls shot his pa handed down to him...... What a Stupid Article

It was no big seceret that Bledsoe & Hamilton counties were very much Pro Zack Wamp last election day, as we should have been, Mr. Wamp has done a tremendous amount of good for this entire Southeast Tennessee area, Haslim is now repaying us for that loyality that's plain to see by anyone. I can guarentee you Mr. Haslim this time will be worse come election day, ( of course you already expect that I'm sure) & it is a sham the kids of the entire state are having to suffer your revenge tactic. Well here is a news flash for you kind sir, The "Mounatin People" of this region are strong people, with strong wills, minds & hearts Sir That's why the staff of Taft Youth Center has been, for nearly a hundred years, The Premier Facility in the State & these same people will Survive I assure you without you & thats just what "WE" Mountain FOLK plan on doing & doing it without "YOU" as our Governer next term Sir. I will never stop at a Pilot again nor will anyone in my Family, you stop the bread from being put on the table for my kids & I will try my damdest to repay the favor Kind Sir come election day.

Get ready for Crimes to happen in retaliation for the sentences handed down from Judges, Lawyers, Po's, Case Workers & ect that make these youth's have to send time in these centers. ( Believe it or not this is the exact frame of mind these kids have)... Every escape that Woodland Hills has had in the recent years have had rides waiting or better yet the staff there gave them keys to their vehicle to escape in. If they could not handle the majority of the kids housed at taft throughout the years what miraclious changes have been made that WH is now prepaired to handle every one of tham all at the same time with the students thay have now. When a Center sends you a student every 14 days thay can not control what are they going to do when 65 of the ones they couldn't control arrive together? The can't threaten them with Taft hell it's closed, are they going to send them to wilder? That's like sending a starved bulldog into a pen of puppies eating out of a pan & not expecting any problems, Well lets see they csn send them to Mtn. View oh wait, Taft gets more from Mtn. View than they get from Woodland Hills...lol can't do that, Tell you what let's send them home so they can rob, beat, & hospitalize Miss Betsey down the street, she's 87 & always has a pocketbook full of money that sounds like a good place to send a violent 17 year old, he's only 6 feet 5 & don't weigh but about 265, he's just a misguided child in Ms. O'Day's eyes, rekon how many of thoes kids are from Haslam's neighborhood? If there was one you can bet he ain't going be at Wh, MV, or Wilder.....

The white collar paper pushers from Nashville have never like Taft, the "Mountain Culture" or anything about the place. Debra Valantine has tried for years ( through every Gov. we have had in the past 20 years) to close Taft down but each of them saw thru this hatred of the development center. Taft has always done much more with much less support, funding per child, less equipment, less staff & a whole lot less assaulted officers & teachers. This has made the other centers look bad for years & Nashville paper pushers finally have a Gov. that believes what BS staff says instead of what the Facts on the dotted line say. Haslam & O'Day have made a great mistake, & I understand they both have a lot to gain Monitary wise from this closing, but I certainlly hope that one of these students don't break out while in Nashville & cause harm to anyone there esp. the Governer's Mansion, see while at Taft these kids are outta site & outta mind to Nashville, well when they close Taft down there going to be in Davidson County the entirer time, so when they escape there Gangsta's or Homies, or Cuz's or Dawg's what ever thy are calling there thug friends & running mates, will be right there to pick them up & get revenge on the Judge that sent them there, the governer that passed the law that put them there, the PO that revoked the probation & ect.... See even if a boy escaped from Taft he was still hundreds of miles away outa mind!!!!!!!!!!! Not Anymore......

I retired from Taft & know first hand it's value to both the children & the communities of Pikeville, Spencer, & Crossville. MVYDC, WYDC & Espically WHYDC have sent there worst to Taft since they have been open what is the DCS going to do when this happens & no Taft Officer can be called to drive to Nashville at 2:00am to take away there problem? Several Years back the students at WHYDC rioted & Metro Nashville Police had to be called in with weapons & riot gear to control the students, it was all over the news for days, Taft send 3 vans to Nashville, got every single student ( appox 13 in all ) brought those to taft & never had a problem with those same kids here. Where are those kinds of problems going to be dealt with when Taft is closed? Where are the 6 feet 3 inch 265 pound 17 year old kids that have been locked up since he was 12 going to go, if he stays at whydc, mvydc, wilder, or new visions he will be boarded with a 14 year old who's got caught smoking in the bathroom of his local junior high. This would be a very negative life experience of this child to be exposed to the instutionalized 17 year old that Ms. O'day says are one & the same in the DCS eyes.

What are the employees going to do that do not wish to work at the DOC? What happens when a officer goes from Taft to DCS to work where firearms are used by the guards, should a officer that has dedicated 25 years to the service & well being of the children of Tennessee be forced to used DEADLY FORCE againsed a inmate if that situation arises? I could not shoot a man & take his life for my job & no human should be forced to have to just to keep bread on the table there children eat off of, if someone was threatning my family it would be different but people it would be very hard to take a mans life because he ws trying to escape a fence & those are things that DOC officers are forced to to from time to time.. These officers didn't sign up for that, but there being forced by the Human Rescorces department of the state to take those jobs or be without a job if they close Taft down. Jobs here in Bledsoe County are very scarce to say the least & I understand it's that way everywhere but when the governer of a state doubles a counties unemployment rate with one signature of a dotted line, that's a crying shame.

Ms. O'day & Gov. Haslim want to privatize the DCS & the good people of Tennessee better wake up before it's too late. I hate it for the many, many friends I have that still work at Taft. Mr. Cook this is a fine atricle & please keep us ( THE TAXPAYING PUBLIC ) informed about what is going on with this matter. I wish Mr. Haslim could work on a dorm at taft New Years Eve just one time, not only would he keep it open, he'd give every employee there a pay raise...
