The Miles hasn't helped as many as he claims to have helped. Many of the parents and co-workers in his social work say he does not always return calls and he is very selective in who HE decides to help.

And yes Miles admitted his drug and alcohol use and abuse. Well he told the LPD right before he checked himself into rehab, but he lies to the voter s.
Now take your head out of the sand and pay attention.

Very true about him helping families he wants to help. He has left several families in the dark, and I know, because I've worked with the same families.

Mike Miles is the committee memeber you had involvement with cocaine use while on duty has a police officer in Lowell. He was found using and dealing in a police cruiser
Not accurate. I remember this case from 25+++ years ago. Miles knew he had a problem and sought help for himself. He wasn't a dealer. He wasn't arrested. He did the right thing to straighten his life out.

You have a good mermory. Officer Miles turned his life around. He traveled around lecturing police officers all over the country about how easy their lives could slip away. He wasn't paid for this. He used his own life as an example and helped many police officers. His dedication led him to being on national television with Peter Jennings to share his story on how he turned his life around. He has straightened many a young person out about drugs on the job. The projects are much safer because of his work there. After that Miles went back to college and got a Masters degree in counceling and to this day continues to help lots of families work out their issues.

It is a shame Mercier defenders are trying to help their friend by tearing down Miles who is a good man.

Too bad he wasn't able to get Elaine Espindle locked up for all the money she's swindled and all the careers she's destroyed.
