It’s been noticed that James Ager tends to twist situations around however he can to take the pressure off of himself and the commission to answer for their decisions and actions.  He seems to do this by causing a scene and demonizing innocent citizens and accusing them of things that aren’t true.  This behavior is unprofessional and brings into question his mental and emotional stability, especially since this is far from the first time he’s behaved this way.  Take note that the sheriff does whatever he’s told to do by James, and the state’s attorney does nothing to ensure the law is upheld by the commissioners.
Also, take note that while James is not the commission chair at the recording of this video, he acted like he was on a consistent basis.
