This is a perfect example of small towns hiring cops that have been fired, terminated for bad behavior...they can't jobs anywhere elsebut these poor towns cause they can't pay for lawful officers,,I have seen this before in another city..and it cost the city in law suits,,,HIRE police officers with a good F-5 reports from sled...All actions conducted by this officers SHOULD be investigated!!! who knows what else he has done and got away with it???

bluefin695: AFTER Officer Price killed Bert he called for back up.Bert WAS in a borrowed vehicle after leaving a well known Cottageville resident's home just moments before being confronted by Officer Price. A vehicle Officer Price could not have known was driven by Bert! It was a .45 slug not .40that Killed Bert.Think Officer Price will roll on the person who told him what vehicle Bert was driving? You bet.Bert was unarmed when confronted? Yes. Thank you bluefin695 for getting the facts straight while the OFFICIALS refuse to. Guess it makes them look like idiots for paying officer Price to sit home and out of jail!

i am a land owner in cottageville the cops there are not peace officers they have had some that treated residents with respect however most of these small town police believe they have power and they themselves abuse their badge the proof is all there the reputation of this small town is infamous there are good people living there but to be subjected to fear on any level from these officers jeez !the police chief they used to have (ray) understood the people and visitors paul was the worst it really makes you want to sell your property or for others not to buy in cottageville!
