And one more thing.....it's funny how people can talk about the wrong of one person but then turn a blind eye to the wrong of another. What's right is right and what's wrong is wrong no matter who the person is. All you people know is the lameness he puts on when talking because he is a politician but guarantee you he talks about you behind your back like he does everyone else. If you are for him then he has either complimented you, got you out of trouble or gave you a famous "get out of jail free card". Tell us all one major case he has solved in Caseyville or one major thing in general he has done in his 20 plus years as a cop. He needs to go back to carpentry work. He doesn't belong in law enforcement.

Let's see here.....I don't know this Brad but everyone is talking about all the things he is doing wrong and his past......yet JD Roth, whether approachable or not, has violated numerous state and federal laws as the head of a police department. The only time he lived in Caseyville was a brief stint during his divorce. And take a look at Roth's past criminal arrests. Multiple DUI's, crashed into multiple cars drunk, and was arrested for unlawful use of weapons. Ask some of the old Fairview Officers about calls to him and his ex-wife's house in Fairview with domestics and gun play and killing his wife's dog. Roth is going to be arrested and he knows it is coming soon. Everyone knows it. So to take up for a guy who has done all these things and is a police chief but bash a citizen is beyond me. That just shows the mentality of the people there. Maybe you should go to college or look around your town. And to say there are crooked officers in Caseyville.....then take the evidence to the Feds like the officers did when the useless board refused to do the right thing and protect the town. YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY "THE FISH ROTS FROM THE HEAD" if you can figure that out. And that is why some other people need to be indicted like Roth.
Ask anyone and they will tell you who the crooked cop is. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out. Hint: The name is not J.D.

you know I been thinking. that's probably why I have a headache :-) some celebrities are put on what they call a death watch by Tmz. that usually happens when the celebrities get strung out on drugs and start running wild. I think that I am going to start something similar to that :-) I am going to call it!!!!!! chief JD Roth jail watch:-) so now we just need anyone to report back if they see JD going to jail :-) I have a bet running on it. my bed is that he will be in jail by 5 o'clock Friday :-) would anyone else care to make a bet??

On April 10 2012 I was illegally detained and falsely charged with disorderly conduct.It was a horrible thing for anyone to go through, much less a college student. This was the most anguishing day of my life! Be CAREFUL ASKING THE VILLAGE OF CASEYVILLE ILLINOIS FOR PUBLIC INFORMATION. Especialy when the Caseyville Police Chief, JD Roth, is an instructor at SWIC!! This was an unbelievable miscarriage of justice....on many , many levels.
The dismissal of these completely bogus and trumped up charges has cleard the way for pursuing damages against SWIC and the Village of Caseyville. Most will agree their actions were not only illegal, but irresponsible and uncalled for. This was a civil matter. I am still looking for a civil attorney to pursue damages. I feel this case has merit!!!

On April 3, 2012 members of the Caseyville Police Department made a complaint to the Caseyville Village Board and its appointed police commissioners about Police Chief Jerry D. Roth. The complaint alleged, in detail, a number of legal, moral and ethical transgressions. The officers also conveyed their second no-confidence vote against Roth in as many years.

While I believe in the presumption of innocence, the details provided by officers demand an investigation. I will further say that Roth should have immediately been put on administrative leave until the allegations could be looked into. Since April, the Village Board or police commissioners have refused to acknowledge or investigate these alleged transgressions. As a police chief in a small community, Roth has refused comment.

Chief Roth has had more than ample time to publicly refute what has been alleged by police officers and has not. I have addressed the Village Board on a few occasions in this concern, only to be ignored. I find that Mayor George Chance, the Village Board and its appointed board of commissioners are negligent in ensuring the integrity of its police department, thus the safety of its citizenry.

The only trustee who called for an investigation was Rick Casey Jr. and he is only one vote. The dire situation in Caseyville demands the attention of both state and federal prosecutors. It seems prosecutors always have abundant resources in East St. Louis and elsewhere below 157, but tend to overlook things in Caseyville. I am in earnest when I say I hope that changes very, very soon.

Sorry concerned citizen but you may want to take another guess at who I am. But the list could go on and on because a lot of people feel the way I do and knows the same inside information I know. Another thing.....instead of trying to figure out who I am pay attention to the content because it is all true and Caseyville will find out real soon. Roth is getting arrested for quite a few violations of the law he is sworn to uphold so I think maybe you should wait just a little while longer to find out for yourself. Then maybe you will see I was just reporting facts. BTW I'm someone who has known JD for 20 something years and know a lot of things he has done so keep guessing and I'll let you know when your close.

And concerned citizen instead of pondering on who I am let's hear your educated imput on the corruption in this town. And if it's all BS then explain why JD is getting arrested very soon. Please everyone wants to know your thoughts.
