This man's name is Justin Cornett.

Justin is 6'1, and he's being dwarfed by Tennessee law.

The state of Tennessee has 41,675 pages of laws.

That's over 41,000 pages of things you can't do.

And that doesn't include the thousands of pages of public acts and agency regulations.

We often focus on the absurd number of federal laws and regulations, but the fact is that there are many more laws at the state and local level, and you're much more likely to be affected by those on a day to day basis.

That's why Justin and his colleague Joshua Eakle started the group For All Tennessee, where they lobby the TN state legislature to scale back as many of these laws as they can.

You can do this kind of work in your community, lobbying your city halls and state legislatures for freedom.

Most legislators will take a subject seriously if they get a dozen or so phone calls about it. Now is the time to organize and work to set America free!

YOU are the POWER!

Police Officer Pleads Guilty and Resigns

Prosecutors in DA Charme Allen’s office prosecuted a case against a police officer who lied on an arrest warrant. Joseph Charles Roberts, 23, pled guilty to Tampering with Governmental Records, a felony involving falsifying information on an affidavit. Judge Scott Green accepted the length of sentence of two years and set the case for sentencing on June 29 where the State will argue against Roberts’ request for judicial diversion. As part of the plea, Roberts resigned from the Knoxville Police Department.

In a plea colloquy, Deputy District Attorney Leland Price explained to the Court that on January 31, 2022, then Knoxville Police Department Officer Joseph Roberts initiated a traffic stop on a vehicle near the intersection of Oglewood Avenue and Cornelia Street. The vehicle began to flee at a high rate of speed. Roberts lawfully pursued the vehicle, but he can be seen turning off both his cruiser camera and his body worn camera in violation of KPD policy. Despite his attempt to turn off the cameras, the cruiser camera automatically turned back on eight seconds later when Roberts’ speed reached a certain threshold. Roberts continued to pursue the vehicle with lights and sirens travelling north on Central Avenue to Heiskell Avenue. The pursuit continued onto I-275 north to I-640 east. The vehicle pulled away from Roberts as they approached the Broadway exit. Roberts located the vehicle again after it struck another car at the intersection of the I-640E exit ramp and Broadway. When other officers arrived on the scene, they repeatedly asked Roberts if he was involved in a pursuit. Even though the pursuit lasted three and a half minutes, covered over four miles, and reached speeds over one hundred miles per hour, Roberts repeatedly stated that he was not involved in a pursuit. When Roberts later swore out warrants for the occupants of the vehicle, he again lied and made a false entry in the affidavit of complaint. The falsification of official records was a criminal act that falls under the jurisdiction of the District Attorney to prosecute. Additional violations of departmental policy or civil law are not issues for review by the District Attorney’s Office.

“It is imperative that citizens are able to trust law enforcement,” said DA Charme Allen. “By repeatedly being dishonest when questioned by his supervising officers and by falsifying his sworn statements, this officer broke the law, damaged that trust, and showed that he was unfit to serve as an officer of the law.”

Tampering with Governmental Records is a Class E felony that carries a punishment from one to two years. At sentencing, prosecutors will argue against judicial diversion so this offense stays on Roberts’ record. Prosecutors will provide court records to the Tennessee Peace Officer Standards and Training Commission, the regulatory body for law enforcement officers, to ensure Roberts is not permitted to seek a law enforcement position in another jurisdiction.

If "to protect and serve" was a photo

Officers responded to the Bank of America in Montebello regarding a patron who was causing a disturbance. Upon officer’s arrival, they discovered that a 92 year old man was trying to withdraw money from his account, however his California identification card was expired. Per the banks policy, because his identification card was expired, they were unable to fulfill his request. The gentleman was upset and the police were called.

Once officers arrived, Officer Robert Josett decided to take the man to the DMV in town to help him renew his identification card. With the assistance of the DMV, his identification card was renewed and he was taken back to the bank at which time he was able to withdraw money from his account. He thanked Officer Josett and went on his way.
