"When the mayor came into the room, before he called the meeting to order, I stood up and said, 'Mayor, please explain to me again why I cannot sit at the council table.' At that point, he looked at the chief of police, the chief of police stood up and made the announcement that if anyone spoke at the meeting, they would be arrested," explained Sandra Bailey...
..She spoke up after a motion was made for a new alderman to become a signatory on the city's accounts.
"Alderman Supeck seconded the motion and he asked for discussion, and because I have been resigned from the city for better than a year and a half, I simply asked Mayor Reagan, I said, 'Mayor Reagan, could you please remove my name,' and he pounded his little hammer, and I said 'all I'm going to ask is that you remove my name from all your bank accounts' and at that time, Police Chief Dagley said 'you're under arrest.'"...
...Spurling's sister, Joann Henry, was on the agenda to speak, but was still arrested.
Henry says she was handled so roughly she had to go to the doctor for bruises and numbness in her fingers.
"I said, 'you've taken my family to jail, you might as well take me too.' He fished out his handcuffs and went to put them on me and started to hurt me, and when he started to hurt me, I got a little bit belligerent," Henry explained.
Sunbright police have their own video of the meeting, which they plan to show at court next week.

Check out the Seymour TN area, specifically the Boyd's Creek area. There is some very nice real estate that's still a good deal. It's also a prime location for it's proximity to the surrounding cities.
It's in the center of a triangle that leaves it close to Knoxville, Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Alcoa/Maryville. You can get to any of those places within 15minutes, with the exception of Gatlinburg - you can get there in 20-25mins and over to Cherokee, NC in about an hour total (that is, if you like to gamble, 'Harrah's Cherokee'.
What's troubling about the situation in Sunbright is the fact that it isn't a localized occurrance, it's happening almost everywhere and has the potential to happen anywhere.
