<He met with Mayor John Berlin and city Service/Safety Director Ken Kenst Monday afternoon and planned to speak with Poage this morning to discuss the situation.>

hopefuly in this case it will be the past tense and the names now changed out make a difference

just the thought tht this dude could no somebody or isn't found gulity he could be back on the force soon and his crediabilitie as a cop is shot and bad on the pd

How does a guy who has been known to come to work intoxicated from the night before,go home on his lunch break and come back smelling like alcohol,get suspended for abusing sick leave on several occssions and now charged with drunk driving keep his job? I just don't get it.

So on that note, I hate to run but life calls. Would have preferred a positive and encouraged debate but so much time was wasted on petty stuff. Everyone have a nice evening. Check in tomorrow. Maybe there will be some positive news. Nite.

There was nothing disrespectful about my IAD remark and if your that thin skinned ??????

You just can't refrain from those sarcastic remarks can you?

Is it that difficult for you to have a respectable conversation with others?

Well there you go ladybug, that is your entitled opinion and now have the decency to allows other to express theirs.

Wrong opinion again. I disagree with that opinion.

I'm sure the news picked up on it and the chief said he will release a statement later on.

As far as the union .Yes they will try to defend him.

I think the canfield police dept pretty well covered their butts.

I am quite sure the mayor.chief and safety dir will handle things .

I am quite sure there will be no march on city hall and like everything else the police dept will survive and move on.

Ladybug again, this is not a school zone. This is not about who picked on who. I am not your mommy and complaining to me what watchdog did is not any of my concern. I responded to your remark about IAD.

Unfortunately, your opinion is wrong. This officer had action taken against him by his employer and the Union representation will play a major role in this. That is why it is extremely important that the City of Salem conduct an investigation and dot their I's and cross their T's.

If you want understand why I was against how the police department released their information. Let me explain it and if you are interested I would like to give my opinion as to why.

Well again patti i agree it is a bad situation.

I didn't start the sarcasm.Watchdog did with the union Bs,The union has nothing to do with this right now and didn't need to be brought up.

If your going to lecture you start somewhere else, I explained my comment on the IAD .Thats enough

Hi notSocialist.

Thank you but honestly I am not looking for anyone to agree with my opinions or pretend I know it all. Just hoping a small fraction of incite might allow others to understand why it is so important before we react to allow investigations to unfold. These investigations not only protect the public but that officer as well, especially in long term.

Ladybug, there happens to be quite a few Salem residents concerned about this incident. They have a right to voice their opinions and disagrees without your sarcasm and disrespect. I apologize that you are having a difficult time understanding or accepting that. This is a very serious matter and people have a right to be concerned. The City of Salem, not by choice, is in a very difficult position. I would expect you to respect that if anything.
