Quality background check performed by the City Manager and the Chief of Police of Shinnston! This officer has had a free ride at the expense of the Shinnston Taxpayers and should have never been hired in the first place, let alone be put on paid leave.

Pitty poor Shinnston

Alice, What do you expect. The city stood by this crook when the city of Bridgeport arrested him. They voted to support him, and even put him on paid leave.

This council refuses to see what the citizens have known for a long time. The Shinnston cops have no effective leadership. The Chief of Police was a coal miner and knows more about coal dust then he does about how to run a police department.

That is evident by two cops stealing from theire own evidence locker.

The Chief of Police is responsible for protecting us, training his men, and ensuring he has a vision for the future...

He is a keystone cop, and needs to be FIRED!!

What I want to know is what happened? Was it covered up again? This happened over a year ago.

He is not working there or anywhere anymore so a coverup is out of the question. At the very least he was fired.

I am 100% sure he is gone. He held on for a few months under the conditions you describe, but for a while now he has been gone offically. Now they have a whole new situation with someone suspended. It is like the suspension spot on the roster can only have one, they had to open it up for the next contestant.

The city of Shinnston just does not get it. Thay have Lt. Barnhart who they had to buy a pick up truck for just to haul hi big ass around in. He used to order people out of their car so he could write them a ticket.

The cops there run wild. but I hear the US Justice Dept is looking into there antics and poor leadership.

Ever notice city council does nothing to be proactive until something happens?

What a shame....Poor citizens of Shinnston WV...

Are you kidding me? Barnhart works? He is a lazy fat cop that the taxpayers pay his salary and he can not protect us. Would you want him responding to your house if he had to drag you out of a fire, or chase a crook? Get real, he would get stuck in the door, and have a heart attack. Where is the Protect and serve?

He is a reject has been cop that came to Shinnston from a town that no longer wanted him.

He is a wart to the law enforcement community....

Good thing your 100% gone prediction was not a money bet! That crooked cop Matheny was convicted today December 16, 2011 a year after his hush hush bust....

And he is is also gone from the Shinnston city police as of today...

Problem is Shinnston pulls the wool over peoples eyes, the same way you were hoodwinked into beleiving he was 100% gone....

So you think he would have been back today if he had gotten off? Wrong. He was already gone like I told you before. You have no knowledge of the situation I do.
