Blonde Bomb Blog
|Nearly every day across the county crimes are
committed, money is stolen and someone else suffers from identity theft.
Why is it then that so many of you have taken such issue with the
alleged actions of one individual who by many accounts has repeatedly
take advantage of others? It's not really about who it is, it's about
how this one person seems to continue to commit the same crimes over and
over and just walks away with little more than a slap on the wrist.
Several weeks ago, I received a call from someone who didn't want to give me their name. What they asked was that I request an incident report from the sheriff's office pertaining to the most recent identity theft by the one you bloggers have dubbed the "Blonde Bomb." The caller certainly had enough information of the theft of nearly $6,000.00 to convince me of their credibility. I assured the caller I would see if I could get a copy of the report.
The next day, I went to the sheriff's office and requested a copy of the report. To make a long story short, I was denied any information pertaining to the case. Sheriff Tim Guider informed me that the whole matter had been turned over to the TBI to be investigated and that District Attorney, Russ Johnson, would be handling the case most likely to be presented to the April Grand Jury.
I have since received another anonymous call that stated that, according to inside sources, the whole thing had been taken care of by a Loudon County official and that charges against the "Blonde Bomb" would not be going to the Grand Jury. I have no idea if this is true or not, but it will be obvious if the case is not presented to the Grand Jury.
It's no surprise that so many of you are so angry with a legal system that meters out different justice to those who break the law depending on who they are or who they know. No, it's not right and it's not fair but it's the hard reality of the Payton Place we call Loudon County. And if you think for a minute that this particular incident is unique or that others have not been given special treatment because of who they are or who they know, you are fooling yourself. It happens all the time. I have file after file of incidences just like this one, some even worse.
It wouldn't matter if it was a Blonde Bomb, a Brunette Bomb or a the Black Haired Bomb. It's human nature to want fair play and when we see a situation like this that is so unjust, it makes everyone angry. This story wouldn't even be blog worthy if not for the affiliation to local officials.
The blog site was established to let everyone voice their views of things in our community and given the number of posts that I have received, it is very clear that many, many of you have something to say. All that said, let's let the "Blonde Bomb" story rest for a day or two. Let's wait and see what if anything DA Johnson does with the case.
