im glad to know that rogers is taking care of a problem that catoosa has.change is always good as long as its for the better.they have been cleaning up that town for years and hopefully finally getting some where.Catoosa needs it.
Everyone on CPD. always have been good people and will always be.
most of them have had bad injuries
that happened on a call.helping saving lifes for the poeple of catoosa.and IF they do or did have a problem i have a LOT of hope that the (man up stairs)is looking out for them.
yes if their injuries were that bad they shoud NOT have went back to work.
theres more behind what everyones hears,says,writes,blogs,.i dont think anyone will ever know whats really goin on or whats really happened.
Yes, some of the CPD officers are corrupt but I think they are being used as Rogers county's sacrificial wieners. Things have been bad in the police department for YEARS (according to a sweet old lady that has lived in Catoosa more years than I have been alive). Why now? What happened to the investigation of Rogers County and all the unlawful things that took place in that courthouse and jail? Only a week after I heard about this topic (some time in November I think) all of a sudden we have the whole CPD under investigation for drugs. To fix a problem you need to start at the top! Gene Hanes and McConnell are far more destructive than the CPD. Check this out... http://www.rogerscountygrandjury.com/

We hired a Tulsa attorney and had the same problem. I think we had 5 court dates when my husband proved his innocence on the first! If you don't use Rogers county lawyers you will get nowhere in court.

Has anyone been looking on OSCN? Tulsa county Mines was ticketed twice in '91- one for open container and the other for driving in a matter not reasonable or proper. Sounds like some one got out of a few DUI's. Rogers county in '97 he and Jeff Hitchcock had a lawsuit filed against them for Damages and again in '01 for violation of civil rights.
Point is, this has been swept under the rug for far to long. Raymond Rogers and Rogers county have known from the beginning there were issues. The investigation shouldn't just stop at the drug problem, they should expose the wrongful conduct of some of these "bullies" and not allow it to happen again. I hope they clean house, starting with the DA and judges, and trickling all the way down to the court clerks and administrative assistants.

It's sad when police officers are "going down for the same thing they took your child "down" for.

Love they neighbor, but not too much. I had asked some strangers for a couple of bucks. Payday was two weeks to go. I was not armed. I do not own a gun. I'm just a crusty old lady with bad arthritis. Cop comes by and gives me a ticket. I file it somewhere. Six months go by and the Cop pulls me out of my house and drives me to jail. The female cop and male cop grab my purse and demand how much money I have. I have none. They fiddle with my 15 bottles of medicine, spilling one all over the floor. "What's your son's number?" We'll leave him out of this, I said. He's been out of work for a year and has five kids. THEY (Coweta Police Department) GO BEHIND MY BACK and get him to come and pay $209 cash. How do you spell humilated? How many times can you say "Sorry" before the car door slaps you in the face? I feel so bad.

I can't believe the corruption in this police department and that no one ever reported this so it could be investagated. Look at all the people they have abused & arrested. Who they ruined their lives. This is just not right. Then to make things even worse you see how they were punished. I can't believe the sentence they have received. Probation, what about a massive fine & did they have to stay in that place they call a jail in Roger County!!! This is what upset me we believe that justice will be served but when you see for yourself how the court system really works it's scary. Why didn't they get a harder sentence, have community service, drug court & classes to attend,
VIP class. What about all the people they arrested wrongfully while they were on the CPD! Something should be done & the public has a right to know why they received such a light sentence. What they have done to the people they have arrested is terrible. So sad that we pay for what they did to us but they get off so lightly. This is so wrong!!

It was reported. On more than one occassion. The other officers, the ones that weren't arrested, have endured as much, if not more than what you can imagine. Theres a protocol that was folloowed & dismissed because of....... Anyway, there's more that was done than what you realize. These men/women put their lives on the line for you. They try to rid the streets of injustus. Little did the public know they were being treated unjustly. You have NO idea!

Grow up you ignorant person. Would you want someone talking about your family in this manner? I don't care if that's the way you feel because I have some pretty strong feelings about you right now too. I don't even really care about all the other insensitive comments that are on here right now, it's a public forum and freedom of speech, yadda yadda yadda.
What I do care about is the fact that my mother, father, nephew, etc have access to the Internet too and they don't need to be reading tasteless little comments like this from tacky people like you. Grow up, mind your own business, and for your own sake, try to develop some class.

I knew John and Angie Mines back around the1993-94 timeframe when he was just starting his police career. He was really on a power trip about becoming a cop. He was using and selling dope back then too. One of his party buddies was developer/builder Jerry R. Gordon who seems to also have had some recent issues with his Riverwalk development.
