According to a Richmond Times Dispatch article published yesterday, the Police Chief's son got arrested for a DUI in Henrico. Dixon IV is also a Petersburg police officer. I wonder if this is going to be swept under the rug.

How does John I Dixon IV work as a police officer when his father John I Dixon III is the chief? Didn't they work at the same time in Richmond? Is it true that Dixon IV had an issue with a firearm outside of a club while off duty when they worked in Richmond? I wonder if dad will be appointed to the Mothers Against Drunk Drivers?

I wonder how many times this guy has got into trouble and got away with it because of who his father is. Who wants to bet that little Johnny the IV keeps his job? Lets look at this..... his father is the chief...... anybody want to guess what his work ethic is like? I guess when your father is the chief you can do what you want. I hope the city proves me wrong and does what is right but I will not hold my breath.
wow

Other Petersburg Officers have been let go in the past due to DUI Convictions. They are setting themselves up for a nice lawsuit.

This chief is on a government panel that is trying to take our guns. This dude needs to take his sons liqueur and clean up his own house before he tells us how to clean ours! Now, how do you dicipline others but not your own blood?

Everybody in the Petersburg Police Department who has been there for any time (read that before Dixon) knows that Dixon and his command crew that he brought from Richmond are a joke. When he first got there long time and dedicated Petersburg Command people were ousted from their offices, many having to get out in 24 hours. I challenge anybody to go through the front door of the Petersburg Police department and look at the ghetto type construction that is right against the front window and tell me that it does not look like some of the mismatched work done to houses in the poorest and worst parts of Petersburg. The City Manager needs to wake up and admit to the laughing stock that the Petersburg Police Department has become under the watch of one Chief Dixon.

Is this his first DUI? Has he been in trouble before? Was there any problems when he worked in Richmond? How can you work as a cop in a department where your dad is the chief? Will he take his son back to Richmond if he gets the chief job there? I would love to hear a reporter ask the chief those questions! Channel 6, 8, 12, 35, Progress Index, Richmond Times Dispatch, Fort Lee Traveler, anybody?

This is the way it appears, nepotism, you see Big Daddy is the chief, got there by kissing butt, certainly not by education or hard work. Otherwise he never would have had his no brainer son as an officer, the only reason is because, he obviously has child support payments to make and is not qualified to do any other thing except be placed where his Big Daddy police chief, who, notwithstanding, is probably a crook himself.
Let me give the readers a bit of truth here. In the recent past, there was?still is, this miscreant, urinating on my garage, I took him to court and with the right person helping me, an excellent public servant, name with held, helped me with the very well educated district attorney, hook this clown for two misdemeanors, listen.
So the judge asks what I would have done to this brainless piece of protoplasm, I remarked retribution to the full extent of the law.
The very next day, my property had been urinated on again, so I called the police, figuring that some right would be done. Well, as luck would have it, my wife answers the door because I was not dressed to answer the door, so in the most unprofessional manner he raises his voice and announces threats against my wife, because I wrote his name alongside the urination stain he made on my garage. I figured that 1. since he lived in petersburg, he could neither read nor write because this burg ranks highest in cost and lowest in educative quality in the whole state. So this poor excuse for a policeman leaves and the next day I go looking for him in the Police department. Gone for the day. Yeah right. So i made an appointment with the German secretary that is working there for this "policeman" to come and speak with me directly because he related he would arrest my wife if the writing was not removed. As you can guess, he never showed up, ha.
This town has some of the dumbest policemen, and on the other side of the coin, some, actually, good policemen working here. The dummies and the blowhards who think they are going to scare some poor innocent lady into some sort of submission, I still await his arrival at my residence so that I might give him a bit of instruction of the law, seeing he is, in all probability the chiefs son, who, in all probability, can neither read, nor write correctly, judging by the way he came and represented the department.
This is one sorry little brained department,the son of the police chief gets popped for drunk. Also running a red light. Want to bet he is not only retained because his Big Daddy will go to the judge and they will sweep it under the carpet. He will be promoted because of his puffed up attitude, just like the "no nothing" cop who came to my door with his big mouth.
The bottom line here is that if you want to have justice done, do not rely on these stooges.
Granted some are upstanding, but, very few. The most are racist, lazy , out of shape, slobs, that evade anything called work. Too bad this police chief isn't driving a garbage truck with his son. That is the best job thay would be qualified for.

I encourage everyone to read the article in the Progress Index. The department spokesperson would not admit that this guy is the chief's son. Instead she cited a policy. You must have a lot of nepotism and underhanded favoritism going on there if you have a policy that bars people from disclosing who a relative is. Also, this spokesperson stated that in "most" situations a person is put in administrative services without pay. Anybody want to bet that his son won't fall into this "most" situation catagory? I woud like to know, is he getting paid? Then they quoted a policy barring this father - son employment. How was he even aloud to be hired? Are there anymore of his relatives working there? Are there anymore of his cronies family members working there? As typical, the people at the top feel they are above the law and that no policy or rule applies to them. How can you enforce the law when you willfully disregard it? How can you enforce policies if you flagrantly ignore them?

What a hypocrite. He is suppose to uphold the law not break it. Then when he is caught he refuses the breath test to hide it. Will the chief take his son back to Richmond when he becomes chief there? I have a lot of questions that I think we the public deserve answered. What is his sons salary as compared to others with similar experience? What is his sons assignment when hired and now? Is he qualified for that assignment? How many friends and relatives did the chief hire? What are their assignments and salaries? Are they qualified for tye position that they hold? What raises and promotions did these people recieve? Were they promoted over more qualified people? Channel 12, 8, 6, 35, Progress Index, Richmond Times Dispatch, please find out the answers to those questions.

I hate to break it to you the cops in this state are sorely in need of attitude adjustments and I firmly believe the need brain cell implants. Oh and Just to throw this one out there will this guy have to have a breathalyzer installed in his patrol car before he goes on duty in the streets. Food for thought.

Based on the propagandic garbage I'm reading on here, you people don't have a clue what you are talking about. I happen to know this officer very well and yes, I concur he excercised bad judgement but weather he is guilty of a crime is for the courts to decide, not you 2 Bit nimrods on here posting useless rhetoric.

Funny how the dregs of society are the first to cry out about letting god or the courts judge. This is typical of people that don't care about societies rules until theirs is violated. If he didn't want to be judged and have his face in the news then he shouldnt have been driving after he was drinking! Plus and peraon that wasn't guilty wouldve blew in the test.

So, you think that you have the RIGHT to exercise judgment on everybody here, however, nobody else has the right to exercise that same right on YOUR FRIEND? You say that we do not have a clue, well, little one, how does a father exercise the same detached judgement on his son that he does on other officers on the force? There has been a long standing saying about police work that you are a police officer everywhere other than where you live. I would think that would apply to family members working for family members. Son, preception is reality and this stinks to hell. Now tell me that the Gregory Sidell issue with the office and the shack looking construction in the front hall of police headquarters are not a fact. Fact is that the City Manager got away with assault on his wife and I would bet that this officer somehow just receives a slap on the wrist and keeps his job. Pat Kell, could you say the same?

Of course it is. Having had lived here for the last 12 years, race notwithstanding, nepotism amongst certain colors abound, for instance, I have been a professional in a certain "Profession" for 30 years and just could not figure out why it was that the lower ranking health care "professionals" of color, just would not work. The one that made the most sense was that the taxpayer foots the bill for these lazy "baby factories" whose "supposed income, The "sperm donor" went to the can for illegal activities, so she finds another one of Petersburg most "brilliant" to father another child with her, and on and on it goes. So these women are sent to some nurses aide school and the taxpayer money subsidizes the nursing home industry to hire these "professionals" to care for good old gramps or grandma, whichever the case may be.
1. The charge nurse assumes the shift duty off a tape recorder because there, in my years, has ever been "walking rounds" where the work of the person leaving can be critiqued.
2. On the floor they find that all, or mostly all the patients in each major quadrant of the nursing home are and have been dirty, not only the previous shift, off-going, but the shift before that. Not to mention hungry and dehydrated.
3. Then after looking under the sheet we find a deplorable mess, looking at the site where the dressings and the gastric tubes and indwelling catheters are located to find them in the most deplorable shape. For instance, I will not mention one "Golden" facility where I was a charge nurse and daily found all 11 of my gastric tubes plugged to the point where the feed had turned in to a geletanized mass. The feed bottle wrong, undated, untimed, the patient in the worst unkempt situation. Daily, mind you.
3. After having turned on the call lights because the "professional aides were either out smoking or hiding, this being the finest quality of wretchedness, was a nurses aide eating the patients food and watching her TV, with the curtain closed. The patient was cognizant and hungry,buy, upon query, was told that certain"professional "tends to her on a daily basis and will treat her beastially, if she says a word, then the food plates for dinner not set up for the incapable person,dietary coming along at the appointed time and removing the tray. The "professional' marking 100% eaten. So I was clued in after losing many a decent job where I could have made a living because of the fact that, writing up, telling the superior, or whatever one can do, this "professional" cannot be removed because your taxpayer dollars provide a large amount of the salary for this "professional" to be there, the only one leaving is YOU.
One other instance at a facility I will decline to mention, as it has a "laurel" attached to it for the description of "superior" quality of care. Same thing, only this time I was given the title of Nursing Supervisor, The only RN in the house. So the "Management" puts an LPN in charge on the daily shift duty list and has me pushing her cart. As I am working, I do the same technique with the call bells, they ring and ring unanswered, mind you, each and every bell. Grandma, beautiful and fragile gets up, no CNA on the floor because they are all watching TV with the LPN supervisor, Broken hip= dead. Do you think they cared?

Bottom line, if you can, keep your loved one at home or in a safe place, nursing facilities like these two, which represent only a minute fraction of the ones seen, do not care about your loved one.
It is a shame that a person would work their entire life and secure a place for themselves a place to live out the "winter" years, under these deplorable conditions, run by "tyrants, who could give a tinkers dam about your loved one as long as all the paperwork is done. Better dead.
