      More lies by local crack heads. The man was a total wack job living in a cease pool. He was a wife and child beater and had serious mental problems. He did attack the deputy and they did what they were trained to do. Roy Terry is another problem person in the area his post here is clearly showing his lack of information and just hate for police.
