Since Our Election, Chaos Has For Sure Hit Our County...And Grundy County Residents Need To Stand Up And Support These Men That Lost Their Job!This Man Did This Out Of Revenge, And I Think There Should Be Legal Action Taken!And As Far As Brent Myers, Taking Our SRO Officers Out Of Our School...Which Is There To Protect Our Children, Just Goes To Show You What Kind Of Person He Really Is, And The ONLY Reason He Put Them Back In Is Because The Media Got Involved, And Then He Lied To Them Too! I Have Called Our Schools And A Couple Of Our Schools Still Dont Have A Regular SRO..They May Show Up For A Bit Then Leave...Or Sometimes Dont Show Up At ALL!! But Thats Ok, You NEVER Gain Anything When You Treat People The Way That "Turkey" And "Brent" Have! And Hopefully In August Grundy Will Stand Up And Do A "Write IN' For "Johnny Ray Fults"...

Mr. Hargis has changed his story 4 times. 1st he told the men they were being fired for not supporting him during the election.2nd he wrote poor job performance on the separation slip. 3rd he told the "News Free Press" it was because they refused to go to work. 4th now he says it was insubordination. Guess he can't make up his mind what to tell next.

"I had to send out there after them, and when they come in, I sent them home for insubordination"... lmao. That kind of 'redneckese' coming from an elected official kind of says it all. And it's pretty obvious from how specific the comments from the fired employees are, and what they have in common, that this pos is lying like a rug. He looks like a real winner too... Popeye's even uglier brother, lol. Nice shirt.

Looks like a bunch of sore losers in Grundy County. You could tell, Dewayne "Turkey" Hargis was lying because he kept looking away from the camera man like he was ashamed of his words. Such a shame the years those men have worked together and now they are at odds over an election. Someone must have been doing their jobs to be employed as long as those men were. God help them to get their jobs back or at least a better job with better pay.
