Unless I'm mistaken this is the man Carl Hatfield fired when he was mayor.

My guess is his fellow officers turned him in if the FBI got involved.

Nothing changed with law enforcement in Appalachia in all the years I've lived. Back in the day they were running theft rings and bootleggers. Today it's drugs. Nothings changed, only the products.

They all ride around like they own this place. Looking all mean looking out their windows at people. They forget that they are a servant of the people.
