You know the West Liberty Police aren't going to get off their butts and do anything. We had to call 911 back in the summer because of someone trying to get in our house. It was the State Police that came, no one from the West Liberty Police Dept. What is the point of even having a police dept. if they don't do anything?

You don't think that West Liberty nearly being wiped off the map by the tornado only a few months before might have something to do with it? They weren't exactly operating under optimal circumstances then.

No, the city police won't do anything about a shooting in Ezel. And if you live outisde city limits, they won't do anything about that either. That is why they are known as the CITY POLICE, dummy.

Anything outside CITY LIMITS, either the Morgan County Sheriff's Office or the Kentucky State Police will respond. The West Liberty Police Department only responds to calls within the city limits, unless requested specifically by another agency to assist.

Read the post...I said, unless requested by the MCSO or the KSP, city units only answer city calls. If the MCSO or KSP requests WLPD, they then will go outside the city limits and assist with a call and have just as much jurisdiction in the county as what the county units have. But until they are requested, they stay within the city limits.

He'll probably get away with it. Should at least have a manslaughter charge. The family should go to the news with their story so it's out there.

Yes the grand jury goes in march.but he did not leave town.as far as I'm concerned he should never spend a day in jail.he's not a monster and would never intentionally hurt anyone.please don't talk about people of you don't really know them or their story.

James was my cousin and i agree jesse should be locked away for a very long time people are trying to say its self defence but people who actually saw it say jesse was shooting at buffolos truck and thats what got it started and all buffolo was doing was walking towards jesse all he is is a coward need a gun to protect himself id say he will probably need alot more than that now i know alot of people thats probably going to be after him all i can say is good!!
