Written on Fall Guy: The County Loses an Effective Public Servant:

in response to Drewdawg87#210257:

Rikki your bias is showing. Shame on you. I once read of an old chap who was regarded as a phemo in the acting circles. He was a master equestrian rider and celebrated fencing sensation. He was highly educated and a man of privilege. He attended the finest boarding schools and ran with the social elite. He was highly regarded by his peers and an actor of rock star sensation. Yet on April 15th 1865, he pulled a revolver from his coat and assassinated President Lincoln. Booth and Tindell share many common threads. They were booth men of privilege who let ambition and a false sense of self worth get the best of them. What a sad way to destroy a legacy

If Tindell is as chased as you say, he needed to fight like heck to defend his honor and not concede by “taking the fall”. Real men know the value of their honor and do not use it as a bargaining chip. 1000 good deeds do not make up for the corruption and miss use of public trust. I imagine John Duncan III’s day in court is coming and the whole truth will come out.

Tindell and Burnett should just be happy we do not live in Roman times. If a public official was found guilt of corruption in those days, their hands and feet where bound. A burlap sack filled with rabid rats was placed over their heads and they where thrown into the river. 11 months and 29 days of probation – A criminal record expunged after that. I think he’ll do fine. I’m sure Jimmy Duncan has something lined up for him. The true loss to Tindell in all this is he’ll have to personally pay for all those fancy meals he’s always bragging about. I'm sure loosing the county Purchasing card is really killing him.

My guess is your last name is Hornback, though you don't sign your name to posts. More lies and distortions from "Drew", who must have a chip on the shoulder the size of a boulder.

A 'man of priviledge'. What a joke. I grew up with a single mother most of my life. My primary 'father' when I was young was my grandfather, a very modest East Knox County farmer. Later in life, I attended Bearden High, with many who did have 'priviledge', but not me. The only way I afforded the polo shirts and Nike shoes was collecting a paychack, for 3 years at McDonalds. College was paid for by work and Pell Grants (those are only available to low income families, which my mother and I qualified for at the time). Law School was paid for by loans, a job and scholarships.

I have been blessed with some success as an attorney, including my work as delinquent tax attorney (as pointed out in many news stories). That is a result of hard work, not priviledge. I won't respond to the other outright lies about purchasing cards (never had one), etc. Your bias and ignorance is showing.
