Sequatchie County Arrests from 11-04 to 11-10-2013

Sequatchie County Tennessee

Innocent until proven or plead guilty. This weeks aggravated everything, contributing,  and a shoplifter. All accused but since we have the Standefer-Pulliam crime scale in Sequatchie county, none of it matters.  Just go to court and plead Standefer-Pulliam, you want probation and a few weekends. Consult an attorney,  pay off someone, frame a friend or reach out to your crony network, it’s all the same.  Truth in advertising would call it the injustice system, special laws for special people.

Sequatchie County Arrests from 10-28 to 11-03-2013

This weeks rogues gallery of arrested folks, Aggravated Arson, Assault, VOP/ Child Abuse all heinous crimes but Domestic Assault always irritates me. You can lose your gun rights for that one, lose an occupational license for things such as nursing if someone reports it to the state, it just seems like a crime that isn’t worth it.  You can walk away, get a divorce, talk it out or just leave.  Violence only makes things worse.

* 39-14-302.  Aggravated arson.

(a) A person commits aggravated arson who commits arson as defined in § 39-14-301 or § 39-14-303:

Sequatchie County Arrests From 10-14 to 10-20-2013

The featured arrests this week were most difficult to decide. I already published the bond agents that were arrested HERE.  I actually pity the drug and alcohol users, they are victims in their own minds. The sellers, manufacturers, promoters and dealers cause me to have feelings that are very different.  Peddle death and you get no pity from me.  We all know that METH = death now and the term ‘Speed Kills’ from the 1960s still applies. You go into these things fully aware, commuting suicide and homicide,  one dose at a time.

Sequatchie County Arrests From 10-21 to 10-27-2013

Not much this time period but theft and shoplifting arrests appear to be on an upward trend.  Only time will tell but the economy indicates this will be the new norm. Financial crimes, where the police are used as debt collectors because of the antiquated Tennessee law that legitimizes debtors prison will also increase.  These debt collectors that force people to believe handing over post dated checks needs to stop, Tennessee needs to stop garnishing pay and courts need to nullify this type of enforcement. That all belongs in civil court, not criminal court.  Innocent until proven guilty or in the case of some of the financial crimes : Unfair and violating federal law. IMO

Sequatchie County Arrests From 10-7 to 10-13-2013

Only 2 Domestic Assault charges during this time period, Tattooing of a Minor,  and Aggravated Riot are the highlights.  Joining 3 or more people constitutes a riot in Tennessee,  and that leads me to believe someone was extremely injured.  These things most often happen in penal institutions.  I don’t have any background on this particular incident and I’m just guessing what happened. Typing and reading these things for years may give me some insight into the matter.  If it was, Mr. Branan should be expecting some significant jail time.  On a positive note, he won’t get a penalty for not signing up for obamacare if found guilty.

Sequatchie County Arrests From 9-30 to 10-6-2013

This was a very slow week for arrests. I think the criminals may have shut down with the government shutdown. That or the fire at the jail had them booking into somewhere else.  Not much really to take notice of,  just some robberies. If the shutdown did cause this please ask them to shutdown more.   Innocent until proved or plead guilty.

Mary Jane Shell Local Bond Agent Arrested for Violence


These represent arrests, not convictions. Since I began running the DunlapTattler website I had heard of the ‘special’  family,  the Shell bondsman family. Sure enough as I looked into it, the allegations were true. In my opinion as someone who observes cases through documents the family was above the law.  There comes a point when your friends can’t hide what you do.  You pick a victim that charges you and follows through. Thank you to the victims. What a shame this alleged reign of corruption and terror has gone on so long here.

On October, 14- 2013 Mary Jane Shell and James Thomas Shell allegedly  went on the victims  property,  assaulted an adult male and female in front of children.  We are always on camera in the US now.  This is all I will say on the issue because a picture is worth 1,000 words. several pictures can be a book.  I have left the comments open because I have been getting emails about this company and family since 2009. Please use the comment section to tell anything you might know to clear all this up. I will protect your identity under the 1st amendment as a source.
