Ed Locke Jr : was hired as a cop by the city after he was fired by another city
- Ed Locke : was hired by the city and started the years of corruption within the city and police department. While Locke was in charge he made sure that people new he ran the town ( he was a thug ) and he violated the rights of many good people. He was fired for undisclosed reasons but one could only imagine. I think there were over 500 tickets missing and several complaints of misconduct but that doesn't even scratch the surface of what this man was allowed to do.
for breaking the law ( that's right BREAKING THE LAW ) and was on
probation for his crime and was not supposed to be working full time as a
police officer so the city paid him 40 hrs of overtime so it didn't look like a full
time job ( LIKE NOBODY WILL NOTICE THAT) and on top of all that
it was overtime pay and with grant money received from taxpayers. I can't even
begin to imagine how many tickets he wrote that should be null and void,
then when the story broke about his probation violation the city decided it
would be a good idea to fire him ( YA THINK).
Mike Smith : was hired by the city after he was fired from JCPD for
reasons ( LETS JUST SAY, NOT GOOD) and then the city fired him for
more reasons unknown ( ITS A SECRET I THINK). I think we will find out
someday and I 'am sure it will not be good. Oh and by the way he was made
Police Chief, that's right the head honcho.
Roger Ide : was hired by the city after he was fired from JCPD for his alleged
involvement in a bar fight in House Springs along with other fellow officers.
The details that I have found are very disturbing and I believe that he
should have spent time in jail for that deal. Oh and did I mention he is still
employed as a police officer in Byrnes Mill right now.
DO YOU SEE A PATTERN HERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now during most of this poor judgment in hiring practice the same people
were and still are running the city, the judge, prosecuting / city attorney, mayor
city administrator and most of the board of alderman. You would think that at
at least some of those people would stop and ask WHAT IN THE HELL IS
GOING ON HERE, unless they all knew what was going on and did not care.
You be the JUDGE.
