SOUTHERN JUSTICE


Sullivan County, Tenn., known as the birthplace of country music, and Ashe County, N.C., are two counties located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia. With a combined population of fewer than 200,000, both small counties have their local charm, but also their share of hardships. Methamphetamine and prescription drug addiction account for a large portion of local crime. In order to keep the peace, local law enforcement takes a ?tough love? approach to their work.
