If the Searcy’s, whoever they are, are to be believed, Columbus has a big problem. The town recently made news for getting lots of points for participating in state traffic stops and such. The Searcy’s, however, describe the police force in a manner that conjures images of hundreds of Barny Fifes milling around the town like ants on a sugar cube. Police department spokesmen have a different view, but the Searcy’s say the cops are scaring away busines, issuing citations without warnings, and not giving people fair trials because the town is intent on collecting fee revenue.
