Why did I have to go to the Sophia topic site to find out why Bruce James gets away with all the stuff he has? Does no one on here know the truth? Seems like Sophia knows more about what going on than the Bradley site or maybe you people are afraid to tell what you know

what EVERYONE is really missing is the real POINT, the reason for becoming a firefighter 2 start with is TO PROTECT AND TO SAVE LIVES!!!!! now just stop and think 4 just ONE min.would u REALLY REALLY want someone like bruce james coming to a car wreck, and maybe u having a child in the car that might say something 2 upset him and him get mad and lose his TEMPER and haul off and hit them, or pull out his gun and even shoot them!!! cause oh why has this never been mentioned, YEA bruce even shot a man a few years ago and never even spent a night in jail! so now someone EXPLAIN that one? or even having 2 come 2 ur burning home and being one of ur foes is ur home going 2 burn down or what?

yes bruce does have a BAD temper, but there is a time and place 4 everything, first of all a REAL man would never hit a woman! or a KID! and when u have people out there VOLUNTEERING for you and the COMMUNITY they need the most important thing RESPECT! RESPECT! which this is one thing bruce james knows nothing about, with that he could have kept a good fire dept.going and im sure plenty of support from the community.but i agree with everyone that until he is gone bpvfd will never be nor have again! and i also would like 2 know HOW HOW HOW does he get by with all the things he does? hope he is the only one walking in those shoes!!!!!ALSO GOD says 2 forgive and forget,so MAY GOD BLESS YOU !

Lets set the record straight
1. Jan 2007 Bruce James is charged over an incident at k-Mart in Beckley for 3 misdemeanor charges.
2. Nov 2007 Bruce James arrested after a fight at the RVA bingo hall in Beckley for misdeamonor charges.
3. What was the result of the charges in case # 1 dismissed after several contiuneances when the arresting officer did not show up for the trial is Bruce James responsible for the officer failing to show up. Why did officer Larkin offer to drop charges if Bruce James signed papers saying he would not file suit over the case an tell bruce' lawyer that he would do so if Bruce would sign the papers he would do that because Bruce James Had not done anything to him. why did it take so long to get this matter before the magistrate any way was it to help Bruce James or was it to let the statue of limitations of suing an officer and his employer of 1 year to expire so Bruce James could not have his day on court why did officer Larkin quit the Beckley force to take a job at Sophia PD.
2. Why was the officers charges against Bruce James Dismissed by the magistrate as being improper because if any thing did happen it was a misdeamnor not committed in his presence. Is Bruce James responsible for this stupid officers rush to arrest Bruce James why no suit against those involved or was this drug out over the 1 year statue of limitations again.
As for Bruce James striking a fire fighter from another dept. why did the complaint first try to file a complaint with the sheriffs dept then when he didn't get the results he wanted did he then contact the state police. Did Bruce James tell the trooper he hit the guy or did he say he rembers grabbing the guy by the collar and the trooper said that could be considered assault. Why did the Girl That claimed she was with him and only going to the Bradley market to get buns for Her boy friends family for dinner. Why did they leave and never go back to get buns. Why did latter one of the board members that was trying to remove Bruce James Say he had been lied to and that he also found out that the guy was chasing a BPVFD engine responding to a fire call to get a picture of the child of two BPVFD members child riding in a car safety seat in one of the rear seats of the engine while responding to the call. Why was there a question of who the passanger was in the pickup truck that they were in that day and is it true that the girl was lieing about being in the truck.

Larkin was fired/forced to quit from Beckley PD for a traffic stop he made. Once that happens the charges end up gettin dropped.
Besides the fact that there's like atleast 5 other places that carry hot dogs buns in the area, what would be the use in going back to Eddie's to get them?
Why was a kid in the engine to begin with? There's no way you could properly strap the seat down because of how the seats are made. They're not like a typical bench seat in a car.
As far as the girl goes, I went to school with her. I knew she was at Bradley because she used to wear her BPVFD shirts at school. I saw her in the guys truck before all that mess happened because I remember waving at her. And yes that was the same girl on the news.
