Monday January 17, Dylan Earley to Launch Knox County Commission at Large Seat 10 Candidacy http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34781 http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34781#comments Thu, 13 Jan 2022 21:08:52 +0000 http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34781 Former Republican, Dylan Earley, will officially launch his campaign for Knox County Commission Seat 10 as a Democrat on January 17th , 2022. When elected to Commission, Earley will focus on historic levels of infrastructure investment, generational increases in teacher pay and school funding, diversifying Knox County’s housing, jobs, and economy, and providing desperately needed accountability into Knox County government.

Dylan Earley, Candidate for Knox County Commission at Large Seat 10

Dylan Earley, Candidate for Knox County Commission at Large Seat 10


Earley was born and raised in East Tennessee, having grown up in rural Greene County. After obtaining a degree in History from Carson-Newman University, Earley moved to Knoxville where he has proudly served the community through professional mentorship of local college students and pro bono marketing consultation for businesses in Knoxville. Earley is currently completing a graduate program in Strategic Communication through American University. Earley attributes his desire to serve the community to his mother, his most important role model.
The unacceptable abuse of authority displayed by Knox County Mayor Glenn Jacobs and Knox County Sheriff Tom Spangler is a top priority for Earley. Using the powers vested in County Commissioners by Chapter 2 – Article I – Section 2.4 of the Knox County Code of Ordinances and pursuant to T.C.A. § 5-5-126, Earley will move to subpoena: 

 ● Knox County Sheriff Tom Spangler and Knox County Law Director David Buuck for documents and testimony relating to the illegal 287(g) program and the recent arrest of David Hayes–both of which have been vigorously defended by the incumbent.

 

● Mayor Glenn Jacobs and his staff regarding his threats and interference targeted at the Knox County Board of Health and the Knox County Health Department. 
 This commitment to accountability is what compelled Earley to run for County Commission. The incumbent has had the power to hold both the Mayor and Sheriff accountable for the last 3 years but has instead turned a blind eye to their abuses and sought their political approval. Knox County voters deserve a Commissioner who doesn’t tip toe around accountability in the name of climbing a political ladder in the county or the city. Earley is proudly fully vaccinated and boosted.

Statement from Knox County Sheriffs Office on the Hayes Arrest http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34770 http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34770#respond Mon, 10 Jan 2022 22:07:39 +0000 http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34770 On Friday evening I requested a statement from Knox County Sheriffs Office. Today I received the following communication from Kimberly Glenn.

I have spoken to Assistant Chief Deputy Workman regarding the arrest of Mr. Hayes on Friday afternoon. Chief Workman says the arrest facts are contained in the report that we released publicly later Friday night. Additionally, he states the Deputies acted in a manner consistent with their professional training. Body cameras are not issued to court officers as they are required to be in/out of the courtroom at a moment’s notice. Deputies waited until Hayes exited the meeting before taking him into custody.

UPDATE on David Hayes Arrest http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34768 http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34768#comments Sat, 08 Jan 2022 14:17:48 +0000 http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34768 Let me attempt to clear up a little of the confusion from yesterdays story on David Hayes.

First, the officers (Knox County Sheriffs Office and Public Building Authority) did the job they are hired to do.

Who alerted Knox County Sheriffs Office that David was in the building and had a warrant? I am beginning to know that answer, but before I can report I need to confirm with a couple more people.

I know that Knox County Sheriffs and Public Building Authority do not sit there running names or even looking up notable folks for active warrants.

As for the arrest report that the warrant likely came from, what agency issued that? Again, still working on enough sources for that. I can not access records on a Saturday.

Obviously, Hayes was released on his own recognizance, so clearly as they booked him, the warrant in my opinion ain’t much.

As for Hayes spitting on anyone, that is not acceptable, in my opinion. Again, court officers were doing the job they were suppose to do.

Knox County Sheriffs Office Arrest Community Activist at Knoxville Police Event http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34756 http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34756#comments Sat, 08 Jan 2022 01:56:11 +0000 http://www.brianhornback.com/?p=34756 UPDATE 10:54 pm: I have gotten a reply from Kimberly Glenn that Monday she will communicate with the Chief over the department that apprehended Hayes and give me information. She did supply me with his mugshot and report tonight.

Knox County Sheriffs Officers walked down to the Small Assembly Room and arrested community activist David Hayes on “warrant”. Hayes was attempting to attend a Knoxville community meeting seeking input on the Knoxville Police Department. 

The arrest and Knox Sheriff’s carrying Hayes in a hog tied fashion to a booking room was captured by numerous community activist.

Initially  I believed  it was KPD that arrested him, reaching out to Scott Erland with KPD, he promptly informed me it was not the city’s agency that arrested Hayes. Since then I have emailed Kimberly Glenn with Knox Sheriffs Office, no response has been received yet.

Hayes was sent to the Roger D. Wilson Detention facility and was detained for about 3 hours. I have been told, (obviously NOT from Knox Sheriffs Office) that Hayes was released on his own recognizance.

Was this an attempt by KCSO to silence Hayes first amendment right to have input on KPD? Will be a Followup question I have, if KCSO answers my first two questions.
