I know officer Neumeister and he is a great man. His concern for the wellbeing of the people he protects on a daily basis is far superior to others on the Greenfield Police Department. He is a very involved officer and dedicated to his job. Others should not judge Tony without knowing the full truth. I support Mr Neumeister's lawsuit and wish him the best.
THANKS FOR THE COMMENT TONY!

This is typical for "Smalltown USA" Greenfield - although there are a FEW good officers in this town both city and county - both departments should evalaute the who's, the how's and the why's. This guy is always sleeping with someone else's wife on another shift blah blah...And of course so and so did this while on duty. Go back to the basics and do what you are hired and paid to do. Leave the politics out and do your job PERIOD!! I am tied of paying out tax dollars to listen and watch all of the departments piss it away on this crap right here. This is the same old game of politics and BS - someone is and will always be crooked in the dept.- someone will always be looking for the quick buck and someone who is QUILTY within that dept. will always walk away with clean tidy hands. Get over it & Get on with it. Stop wasting taxpayers dollars and time. I would say clean out the dept. and free them of all the adulterous men, wife beaters, child molesters, cry babies, political bullies, badgewhores BUT wait then we wouldn't have anyone to PROTECT & SERVE....... Oh well another day's worth of gossip for the Daily Repeater.......
Oh and before you start on me - I know this to be fact - I was MARRIED to that Department for years. So yes I do know what I am talking about!

Sounds like greenfield hired the shelbyville police department. Where the patrolmen had to bring their wifes in for the boss to use, clean up and drop back off in order to get a raise or keep their job.
The corrupt court system is a joke there as well and needs investigated by the feds.

Investigate em all.

Yes, I totally agree. Greenfield needs a change and fast!

I am very glad the Indianapolis Star is writing about this issue. I have given up on the Daily Reporter writing a "fair and balanced" article about GPD and their corruptness, especially when it comes to Chief Mercer as he is friends with the owner of the Daily Reporter!

I am with you on this one. I cant believe how bad people of greenfield live in fear of the PD and Court system. I for one would like them to have to serve in the millitary before they would even be concidered for employment in a power posistion of that nature. Not be married or born into it. The millitary would teach them Pride and Honor, before they were on the streets bullying people because of there enormous God-Complex. So keep that money machine working for you Greenfield.

So, he is "far superior" to others in the Department? Are you his wife, caddy, football watching buddy, brother/sister, or Neumeister himself??
It doesn't take much to be far superior than most of the officers at GPD as most of the them are either incompetent or just don't care about the integrity of how they do their jobs! They are egotistical and selfish!

I absolutely can not wait until the proof is out on Bray's and Nuemeister's lawsuits.

I can't wait to read about the famous dispatcher who is no longer employed there, when the attorneys name everyone she was "friends" with while on duty! And try to figure out why one officer was punished but not the others.

I can't wait to read what Fleming has to say about his friend Chief Mercer when it comes out that Chief Mercer had a certain someone over to his home to discuss this "internal investigation" on Brian Bray. YEAH! I can't wait for EVERYTHING to come out on both of these lawsuits.

So hang on tight Laymon, Austin, Jester, Towle, Bucksot, Mercer and Fleming, because you are in for an interesting ride this next year!

Also, I am SO glad Fleming is supporting Mercer completely throughout this whole thing! He must be a really good friend. We'll just see how good of a friend he is when everything comes out. If Mercer cared about Fleming winning, he would resign to save Fleming the election. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
