he was trying to leave, thus controlling his anger. when u are being physically attacked on ur way to leaving, what else can u do? i'm not saying he has some fault in the situation, but why is no one discussing the gentleman involved. why have we not heard his side of the story? repeatedly, "matt, I've never touched you, don't touch me". then, after the mayor talks to matt he says he wishes this would all go away, it was just an argument. i'd really like to hear his version. I understand roger is the chief and it is important to uphold the code of ethics, I get all that, but half a story leaves a lot of questions
Roger went a step further and took his shirt off. Point blank you can not act like this. If this happen in your work place how would you as a co-work fell about this person. Now know this same person swear to uphold the law. He had a phone, he should of call the station himself and sent a car. In his career he has broke up many bar fights he is trained to defuss just these situation in a calm yet controlling matter. Remember you are always a police officer on duty on not you took that oath.

Reading this I don't think you were either for she passed at the hospitals not at home. I think and I maybe wrong the police station raised about 10,000 for health care because home aid was not cover by insurance yet she laid in the hospital for weeks and passed. What did he do with that money she didn't come home hospital was covered by insurance. Please don't open this can of worms up it is not a good subject And you don't date less than three months after your best friend love everything passes. You just don't. You take care of your son and help him though the grieving process and you help yourself.
First of all you have no idea what you are talking about I did't say she passed away at home, I know first hand, and you don't know anything so quit speculating and putting things on here that are disrespectful. You have no right to tell a widow when he can date, I seen the hell the sadness that he went through. I am not going to get into his finances because it is none of your business.

worst case scenario, he acted inappropriately. hes not getting fired over it so stop wishing bad stuff on him. this is the only questionable thing hes done. and Elizabeth was at home til the end when the pain could not be controlled. so keep draggin up stuff u know nothing about, at this point it has nothing to do with the altercation, everyone is just dragging his name through the mud, it's sad. hope u all sleep a little better at night. roger is a good man and an even better chief. so now this has turned into a bashing of the guys family. sweet.

With drugs and hookers and thiefs. There are good moral cops that can do the cheifs job. Read the paper every day and then say rog has done such a great job. If the fire chief got fired over a dead battery then why is this guy aloud to drive drunk. There is something else being hidden.

there are so many comments because most of them have nothing to do with the situation and it's all repetitive. u may talk sh$t about him but guess what. right now, if u or ur family needed him, he would be there. he would have ur back, yet no one wants to have his back, for 20 years this man defended and stood up for u, ur family, and ur friends. the one time he has a negative reaction, everyone wants to write him off like hes a pos. he is on call 24/7, he worked crazy hours for many years, hes walked into burning buildings, hes dodged gunfire. but u want to just throw in the towel when he stands up for himself? he showed up many times to help families, to settle disputes, to make sure there was some type of order in ur neighborhoods. and right this second, as u talk so badly about him, if he seen u in trouble, what do u think would happen? he would risk his life to save yours, period. he would. he didn't just become chief of police, he worked hard for it, he made sacrifices, he studied hard and learned the laws. he is not perfect. he is not superman. do u know anyone who is? if u can do this job better, how bout u go to police academy and do it. don't talk about it, be about it. if u don't like him so much, put one foot infront of the other and u be that person. u walk in his shoes. I bet u wouldn't last. hang in there roger. at this point, nothing is gonna make the haters stop hating. hold ur head high and do what u have always done, march on and lead that town.

This isn't the only questionable thing he's done. There was the incident with the lady giving him the bird. He seems quite abusive of his power. I know a few police officers and they would never have drawn this much negative attention to our city.

Hubcab,
I will drink the kool aid and become a FTARD, along with 1/2of chilli and the mayor. You have made me see my ways, I see that taking off your shirt to fight is the right way to live in this city. Our city smells like poop along with the cheif.

Also if roger can put Chillicothe on the news nationwide two times, I can now go on maurey and find my babies daddies.

Go team FTARDS

I really don't think it is fair to state "no one wants to have his back." I think the majority of people respect the job he does for the City of Chillicothe and WOULD have his back if the situation warranted it. He is doing an excellent job in attempting to rid our town of the drug dealers. I do not agree with his actions on the night in question and I still believe he should be held to a higher standard because of his position. I also do not believe his actions call for his removal - maybe a lesser discipline but, definitely something that will maybe help him keep his anger in check the next time he is in this type of situation.
