Unfortunate side effect of the Knox County Charter rulingOne of the most unfortunate downsides of today's Tennessee Supreme Court ruling on the Knox County Charter will be the departure of Sheriff Tim Hutchison. Hutchison has been one of the few Knox County public officials to relentlessly pursue the truth in the Tyler Harber Affair. After Hutchison is gone, my bet would be that the new Sheriff in Knox County will not pursue the issue with near as much resolve as Hutchison did.
I would also be willing to wager money that Mike Ragsdale is rejoicing on the scale of Sir Edward Heath, who shouted "rejoice, rejoice, rejoice" when Margaret Thatcher was deposed from the Conservative Government she led in Britain.
