John Tyson Responds to Gilley's Conference

The leader of the Gov. Riley’s task force on illegal gambling responded to Ronnie Gilley's statements, saying it's been his experience that it isn't a good idea for those who break the law to decide the prosecution's law enforcement status.

“A Houston County judge, in fact, found probable cause to believe that the machines in Mr. Gilley's facility did in fact break the law of the state of Alabama and issued, actually issued a search warrant, but Mr. Gilley and them sought an illegal injunction, stopped us and what's interesting to me is he could have had his day in court way back when,” John Tyson said.

Tyson went on to say that if Gillley was offering to open the facility and allow state law enforcement agencies to inspect the machines, he'd be happy to "take him up on it and take the machines."

    i'm with you jay. if we were talking about a crack house making drugs this nazi would get a warrant and break down the doors and arrest anyone inside and if any drugs were laying around they would be taken as well. Well you little nazi if you think that bulding is holding an illegal activity or property get off your lazy rear and get your warrant and go on. But of course we all know you won't because it's not illegal since the counry passed a law making it legal and the STATE GOVT approved that law. This is nothing but more USELESS noise from ANOTHER USELESS POLITICIAN. I think we all are counting the days till your boss is gone and then we can "CAN YOU" and get a real law enforment agent in place.

    OK--If you have probable cause, get a search warrant and bust in the doors if you have to. You have the Supreme Court's clearance, and you don't have to wait for Gilley to welcome you in. If the machines are illegal (under ALABAMA law--Houston County cannot override the constitution or state law) then take Gilley up on his invitation and bust his A**. Let's get this c*** OVER with!

    I will be so glad to see Tyson and Riley out on their butts come November, I just hope that who ever goes into office in November will stand up for the people of Alabama and for what they want, there are so many out there that claim they would not dare go to a Bingo parlor and they are the very hipocrits that sneak out to Biloxi and these indian Casinos, SHAME ON YOU. You do know that telling lies and deceiveing will not get you in the Pearly Gates.

    This is total hogwash. John Tyson is so full of himself why has the first place not had their day in court? Why has Gilley's court date always been stayed? So once again Bob (gomer pyle)Riley and John(pork belly) Tyson are as full of crap as a christmas turkey.

    John Tyson is a liar, everything he's ever said has only served to prove that point. This guy hasn't followed the law once, as a matter of fact he's only joined in with Riley in their objective to change the actual law to fit the objectives of their evil plan against the good people of Alabama.
