    Well Thomas since you know how the department works you know how racially biased they are and obviously how much of a bigot you are, the department job is to protect and serve the community not to pick and choose. You my dear are ignorant for your comment of your type of people sad commentary in this day and age. I am not the same anonymous to post the first comment just the most honest

    Anonymous-and just how do you come to the conclusion that "my type of people" are ignorant. First you should check your facts, my husband is a police officer and I know how they work. They risk their lives every day to protect your type of people and this is how you show your appreciation? Get your facts and story straight before you go making false accusations.

    Anonymous, why are you lying?? Sounds like you may have been on the wrong side of a set of handcuffs. Seriously, if you are going to make a comment about the police in thomasville, could you tell something brlievable because police departments in south Georgia dont tell people to call back after something happens. Perhaps you got on the phone yelling and cursing and they couldnt understand you.

    Mrs. Thomas we have a word for your type of people IGNORANT!

    First of all TPD wouldn't have told you to call back when something actually happened. IF you in fact tried to call someone, you would have reached a dispatch officer and a police officer would have responded to the call. Your type of people complain about police officers but when you're in need, who will you call?

    our police are awful. there was a fight at my job where the men were threatening to shoot each other and when we called tpd to come and get them, they told us to call them back when something actually happened.
