A joke?




Here are some photos taken Monday by the Standard of a sign in the windshield of an undercover vehicle used by Sheriff W.D. "Billy" Stokes. The sign, which is a fake sign that just about every other person on the planet has had at one time or another, is obviously meant to be a joke.

But on this day the sign pointed to the spaces next to the vehicle. One of those spaces was a handicapped parking space at the courthouse.

We wonder if this was intentional?

With a trial coming up next week that involves a now infamous dispute over a handicapped parking space, alleged threats with a tazer gun and improper use of blue lights, we have to wonder if any thought was put into this?

We ask the question: Is this just a harmless joke? Is it funny or with the trial looming was it inappropriate?

You decide.

No, I don't think it was an unintentional joke. I feel it was just another episode showing us how inmature and psychotic Stokes is.

We need to remember that are sheriff just like all persons are consider not guility til shown in a court of law that he committ a crime , and even then that does not necessary mean you are guility of a crime.I have my doubts about the claims that were made at the wal mart store.I will need to see some still pictures or a store security video tape showing that are sheriff was actually illegally parked in a handi-capped parking space and if he actually pointed a taser at the person in the wal mart parking lot.

I cannot believe this! Our Sheriff just doesn't seem to care what anyone thinks about him or his seemingly lack of respect for his office.

How much more ignorance and arrogance is the Sheriff going to subject the citizens of Todd County to before his term in office is over?

Sheriff Stokes, has created far too many problems for some citizens to ever think that little sign in his windshield is funny.

This little sign on his windshield is yet another embarrassment to our county and to the Sheriff himself. Too bad he does not seem to see it that way.

Yawn.

I seriously doubt anybody, let alone the sheriff, thinks twice about parking next to a handicap space.

Then again, who actually drives around with one of those signs in their car?

Non-story. Nothing to see here. These are not the droids you're looking for.

Obviously you are probably family or close friend. Not that Billy has many of those. The only way you or anyone else will see a still picture or video clip showing Billy's guilt or innocense is to appear in logan County court on Tuesday for the trial. I really don't see that happening as the only people besides the parties involved and the news media that have even been in court are myself and my friend. I really don't think the people of Todd County care enough to come over to find out if he is guilty or not. Either that or you all are so scared of this jerk that you are afraid he will recognize you and get even with you for being their. Are there any REAL MEN in Todd County that will risk being there besides Ryan Craig? Come to court and show you care and see what a real man looks like. I think Mr. draper is doing the right thing and I hope Billy gets everything he deserves. Let the REAL MEN come forth on Tuesday August 26th. As for Billy's sign I think it's as stupid as he is. When will he give the people of Todd county a break. The best thing he could do is step down now. I hear he has other issues going on right now also. This guy is a retrobate.

Billy Stokes is an idiot and a disgrace to our county! I am embarrassed to have him as our sheriff.

I personally want him out of office. He really has no business being there. We need to be a mature intelligent person in office.

Why is it that the people who are voicing all the negative comments aren't stepping up and volunteering to run for the sherrifs job? Why don't you loud mouth people keep your mouths shut unless you can step up to bat.I do not know about Sherrif Stokes but if I were him I would say to h*ll with the people of Todd Co. and leave all of you ignorant fools to fend for yourselve's. You are all cowards, Why wont you leave the man alone and take care of your own back yard before you start knocking someone else down? Leave them Billy, They aren't worth the time or effort. The first one of you who hasn't made mistakes step forward!!!!!! Now, Cast another stone. Billy, Don't let them get to you, You do have friends in this stupid, backwards county!!!

I didn't realize that God put all the saints of the world in Todd County. I don't guess God knew that Billy Stokes was going to be a disgrace and an idiot and not allowed to make any mistakes. Surely had he known that, He wouldn't have placed him in the garden of eden, {Todd Co.}. When the church bells ring Sunday Morn and all of you back stabbing, self rightous, pious, hipocritcal, adulters are sitting in your pews, Please get down on your knees and beg for forgiveness cause I seriously doubt a single one of you hasn't done something wrong. Is that all you have to do is hate Billy Stokes? Is there no one else to despise, put down, slander or ruin their name and put their jobs on the line in all of Todd Co.? Billy, I haven't forgotten the guitar, If you know what I mean. I think you deserve better than these hate filled people. I for one am grateful for you and as for the rest of you hipocrites, Go straight to h*ll. Whom ever answers this, please be aware that your opinion doesn't mean jack with me. The people of Todd Co. NEED TO STAND WITH OUR SHERRIF,NOT AGAINST HIM.

Just how in the H*ll do you know how or if Billy has many close friends? Did God whisper in your ear only? If you think you can do better, Why don't you run for office? You, I suppose haven't ever done anything wrong? You must be the keeper to the gates of The Garden Of Eden,{Todd Co.}. Leave the poor man alone. I bet you wouldn't have any dirty little secrets would you? Why don't you and the people of Todd co. try to help Billy and the Sherrifs Dept.? Why not try and become a team instead of a ignorant little town full of hating people? Billy, You hang in there, You can always sing!! {Remember}.I think you are doing the best you can under the circumstances. You are alright.

A Joke?
Yeah pretty much everything about him is a joke. Authority comes with responsibility. He has authority not because his name is STOKES,but because he holds the office of sheriff.His authority is also limited. If he acts outside of his duties as sheriff than he needs to be held accountable just the same as anybody else.
He has proved himself, in my opinion to be totally inept at handling authority.
The allegations coming up in the trial next week are serious. If true than he needs to be removed from office for his own good and safety as well as for the good and safety of the people.
Somebody that can not control himself should not be in an office such as sheriff!
The incident in the upcoming trial is not just an isolated incident, but rather a pattern of arrogant attitude that he has been displaying for a while now.

Are sheriff has not been found guility and anything let , remember we are all not guility til proven in a court of law that we made a mistake , even if its a very small minor mistake.Parking in a hand-capped parking spot is just a mistake in judgement.As far as anyone knows are todd county,ky sheriff did not do anything wrong , it just one person word and statement against anothers unless there are video or audio tapes recording of the event that happen at wal-mart.Maybe after the trial or hearing the public will get to see the real facts of this case.

The majority of Todd county has already tried and found him guilty, Why not just throw a rope around a tree and go ahead and hang him while you ignorant people are at it,After all in America, {In Todd Co. it Appears}, A man is guilty until proven inocent!! Forgive me for being under the impression that it is the other way around. I guess you folks have no one else to destroy this week. Billy, Stick to your beliefs and don't back down. I am proud to see some one stand up for theirself and their Dept. Sincerely, Guitar

Todd County, Residents are a group of small minded, self rightous,Pious, Backstabbing,Inbred, and Racist people who have nothing to do but play act at being Judge and Jury. Leave The Sheriff alone and stand with him not against him. I guess it's who has the money and the power in Todd Co. that really matter. Billy and Family, There are honest people who are for you, believe in you and will stand with you, for you and beside you. You are personable, You know what you are doing, If everyone would just leave you alone, You might be to do your job. Go ahead my friend, Show them that you mean what you say and will back it up. If you had money, I really don't think you would be going through this and I am sorry that the folks you and your Dept. have protected have turned on you like a pack of dogs.

The real problems started with are todd county,ky sheriff and sheriff department when are todd county,ky fiscal court keep refusing to fund the todd county,ky sheriff department the way they should and need to.No sheriff should be ask or required to take out a personal loan to fund a sheriff department or offices that nonsense , it the duty and job and responsibility of the todd county,ky fisical court and the todd county,ky judge executive to property fund are sheriff's department and provide are county with the necessary full time paid law enforcement deputy's to properly covered and patrol todd county,kentucky.We need to remember that the todd county,ky sheriff is just a worker and employee of the county and its not his job or duty to take out a personal loan to fund the todd county,ky sheriff's department , that the responsibility of the todd county,ky fiscal court and todd county,ky judge executive.

It is another inmature act on Billy Stokes, All you are doing is showing just how inmature you really are. I would be ashamed of myself, instead of trying to keep Todd County out of the spot light, You intentionally try to keep ---- going. Grow up or leave. you are not wanted except by your family, and a few you keep from arresting by either being scared to confront them or being ignorant and being interviewed by them, only the criminals are you friends with. Does your friend Mrs Hadden not have to appear in court to pay her bills or what is the real story about the night she got caught at the wrong place at the wrong time, yes I do come to court every chance I get, so some people know why she is interviewing you and the real story, you help her and she helps you. Such stupid spouses you have. And to the comment not quilty until proven, you Billy Stokes have been quilty since the day you made all the promises to the People of Todd County and then havent upheld not one of these, so dont try to tell everybody you are a christian person and dont lie, you havent stopped. And also when a person who claims to be a man cant stand face to face with another man, you become a little boy not a man.

This is for Anonymous 7:15 am Aug. 25th. You must be a pretty miserable person to try and ruin peoples lives. YOU are the one who should be ashamed of of being a hateful , Slanderous, Backwards, Noisy indidivual. Could you do a better job? I am thinking that you might, since you do 'Go to court ever chance I get'.Perhaps you can get a degree from the court or maybe you could actually get a job being the court reporter. Why don't you leave? You have no right to tell anyone to leave. Last time I checked, This was still America, [Even Todd Co.} and Billy has every right to live here. Has it ever entered your mind to go out and look for a job instead of meddling in other folks buisness? You must have the longest nose in Todd Co and probabaly the biggest mouth. Oh Yes, I almost forgot, Even though I personally do not know Mrs Hadden, I do know that I am kin to her and it doesn't matter if I know her or not, She's blood and I do not like the fact that you are talking about my relative, So Shut Up!! Get a Job, Do something for Gods sake. Have you never made any mistakes? you must be one of the many saints that reside in Todd Co. Are you a true christian? I think not!! Run to your nearest church and fall down on your knees and pray to become a human being.

I kinda think it is funny how this situation is. First of all, Stokes had no business threatning other people in another county without letting the Logan County S.O. know what he is doing. Second, Stokes needs to resign because he has turned the department into a joke.
