Yep. We have a chief, an assistant chief and ONE officer. But our fire department is rolling in the dough. The fine mayor doubled the town hall's budget and the fire dept's budget, but cu the police dept. And if that's not bad enough, the money for the police dept will be gone by September. That's our fine upstanding mayor for ya. But if anyone calls him out about it he will just play the race card again.

I just saw that on the news. What a shame. I never thought I'd see the day when our town didn't have a city PD. Leslie Thompson has destroyed our town. What a disgrace!

and he was told not to mess with the Towns budgets anymore. People of Jonesboro and the state people need to step up, come together and do something about him. Stop complaining on topix about it. Everybody wants to complain about how he is destroying Jonesboro but NOBODY wants to do anything about it. Not only is it his fault but it is ours too. As a community we should have came together to do something. Jonesboro residents need to grow a pair!

There isn't much we can do unless the DA will actually follow through and prosecute him and the state finally comes in with the court appointed overseer of the finances we were promised. All protesting will do is cause Leslie to call the NAACP for another march, which will cause even more division in our town. He seems to think that white people think he's an idiot and a thief because of his color. Idiocy knows no color. It's universal. Leslie would be an a$$ clown if he were white. Only difference is that I'd he we're white the black community wouldn't be called racists for saying he was an idiot like the white community is currently being accused of doing.

Has anybody heard that one of the police officers is being investigated by the state for selling stolen stuff? Which officer is it?
hmmmmm

Well, we've got a thief for a mayor and now you say we have a crooked officer. Difference is, if the officer is white he's gonna go down. He can't play the race card and get out of trouble like Leslie can.

The chief gets to keep his job because he is an elected offical. I say let the fire department go all volunteer. Why is the fire dept better than the police that they keep their jobs? Making them volunteer will give the mayor more money for the airport to start landing big jets there, come one ppl who uses the airport? and making the town pretty he means landscaping his yard to make it look like washington dc. Last animal control haha they cant control the townhall how they going to control animals? What a waste. Jonesboro pd hold your heads high the ppl feel your pain.

The fire department didn't get cut because the mayor is good friends with him and the mayor don't like Wesley at all , but hopefully Renee will keep standing up to him and she will try to do what is right for our town.
