He didn't get fired. Still the Chief in Cedar Grove. He will keep his job because he is withholding charges on the mayors family for theft of a vehicle. So he has the mayor by the short and curlies. But that isn't to say there isn't a current investigation outside of the town going on. Might be more than him getting ousted at some point.

You know he arrested the mayors daughter don't you?? She was found guilty too. She is currently charged with robbery as well. If he is protecting her, it seems that he isn't doing a good job, or that he is doing his job and put her in jail!! You are right about the investigation in which he was cleared by the Law Enforcement Professional Standards Board. I am sick of seeing talk about our Chief. He busts all the drug head idiots and then they want to cry on here. Another thing any man who wouldn't have done the same thing protecting his wife and baby is not worth anything. Keep your head up Roop, and we ( the good citizens ) support you!!!

There is more to the story! It will come out eventually. I'm not worried about the chief, not at all. The crooked pigs eventually get caught. Then everyone who defends them jumps to the front to say I told you they were crooked. Just a matter of time before more people see the true face of corruption. Ivy has seen it. Did his job to the T, and got reprimanded for doing it. Oh no, don't ticket town council family for parking on wrong side of the street! Oh no don't ticket friends and family.

Don't worry too much Sandy, with our chiefs Wildcard attitude, it is just a matter of time before he turns and bites the hand that feeds him. Right now even though has the mayor by the short and curlies, he is still afraid of the mayor, so he stays in somewhat of a check. All it will take is for his jealous streak to rear its head again, which should be fairly soon seeing as someone is stepping out again. Election cycle is also coming up in just another year, and I have a feeling there will be a lot of people who will vote their opinion. Maybe Brad will run and clean things up a bit.

So Omfg, you would have stalked a person that you had second hand information of making a threat about you, and used your badge and gun to hide behind to keep from facing charges? Good to know there is more than one coward out there. A real man / woman who was protecting their family, would have
A. If the family was reasonably threatened to which a person thought harm was immediate, said man or woman would have shot and never thought twice.

B. Would have removed weapon and police credentials, and faced man to man, making an example to anyone else who chooses to make threats.

But this coward chose to instead abuse his authority and standing from another town, knowing all too well, the corrupt system would look over his death threat with a weapon against a citizen. Double Standards anyone? But again his time is coming, I just hope no one innocent gets hurt when the crap hits the fan, and someone finds out who they are sharing their partner with.

I can't say anything about him seeing prostitutes, as I have not witnessed it. However if you have any information then please make a report to the mayor. The problem can't be overlooked with reports piling up.

As to why Ivy got chewed out, he was writing tickets for facing wrong way and parking at post office, and also for writing tickets to those people who use the lower pull out to turn toward go mart. The pull out down by the tracks. It was all fine and dandy until a family member of council got a ticket. Then Ivy was told to not write those tickets anymore.

Now now now, don't try to change the subject of our Chief of Police who plead guilty of threatening a mans life with a loaded service weapon, in uniform, while driving our towns police car, on the hearsay of a supposed threat he didn't hear first hand against his family.

I just can't wait till election time rolls around, and everyone is scratching their heads as to why they weren't re-elected. Might do good to see a complete regime change.
