I can tell you the allegations on page 7 of this letter are accurate. Roth conducted a politically motivated investigation into me after I filed for some public documents. He even convinced a security guard at SWIC to violate FERPA laws to get information about my student id and class schedule. Ae the creepy two faced jerk stalked me illegally. I understand why the officers didnt sign the letter.......reprisal! The guy must have some kind of split personality.
well first off jd roth has more class than to stoop to your level. They ONLY reason you say all this is because you, who DONT EVEN LIVE HERE, can't have your way. You are nuts dude!! Passing papers out the back door of city hall with the weasel. And you got nerve to talk about others

First of all as a active member of The Stop Heroin Movement and a Rally coordinator, we are based out of St Louis Missouri. We have held 100's of Rallies in Illinois as well as Missouri for almost 2 years, I have never had such a cooperative Mayor or Chief of Police, Mr Roth and Mayor George are dedicated to get the drug's out of your community...in the end that should be the most important topic of Caseyville right now, if you do not address the issue head on as we have been working on with JD & George since last year to help better your community. With the help of all law official's in the area federal states attorney Steve Wigginton & states attorney Brendan Kelly they where able to remove a huge Heroin operation out of your community by the McDonald's in Caseyville. Please leave all politics out of JD's integrity he is working very hard in Caseyville in order to save Caseyville...after all isn't it the drug's that destroyed Washington Park?? Your property value will drop, you will not be able to raise your children there anymore, is that what you want?? I think the entire community needs to get out there let ppl know who you are and get to know exactly what your official's are doing, Thank you for reading and I hope to see you all Saturday in Caseyville Illinois for a STOP HEROIN Rally and peace walk in Memory of Britanny Bovinett @ 12 noon Old Market Place parking lot...and your Chief is very dedicated in backing The Stop Heroin Movement through out all of Caseyville :)At 5 pm he will be there to speak and close Hwy 157 so we can walk to the Caseyville Cemetery for the youngest resident of your town.Who was sadly only 18 yrs old when she passed on Nov 30, 2012 and yes it was a Heroin overdose this is not acceptable by none of the official's in Caseyville, they want the drug's GONE!!! Please join in their effort to do so...Caseyville will be a much safer & much nicer place to live.

I am truly sorry for the loss that has affected your family as well as many others in both our community and our surrounding areas. I too, have had family pass due to this horrible drug. Although Chief Roth and Mayor Chance are supporting this rally, this does not change the fact Mr Chance turned a blind eye to the wrong doing of Chief Roth. Chief Roth is a yes man and behind the scenes he is a discrace to the badge he hides behind. I have known him for years and have witnessed misconduct from the Chief. Its great he is supporting your cause NOW but where has he been in years past? He has been an officer for Caseyville for 22 years and chief for the last 13 so why hasn't he rallied before now? Why don't you ask the current board members or Mayor if they have ever done ride alongs with the police to see what is actually going on throughout this town. NONE have! The hotels are safe havens for drug dealers and prostitution.... you can go to Mcdonalds at 6pm and see prostitutes walking the streets. Do you realize how many cars get stolen from Cracker Barrel parking lot in a month? The administration seems to look the other way when it comes to the South side of town. The whole community should support your cause but also be informed that it isn't just drugs affecting this town! Its theft, murder, battery just to name a few. I agree with you, heroin is taking over many lives and we need to bring awareness to our youth, teens and adults but that isn't the only thing that ruined Washington Park. It was the lack of the communitys leadership! It starts at the top....the mayor, the board, the police, then the community all working together. So, I can't look at the chief n commend him for his "active leadership" because quite frankly, it sucks!!

P.S. Why do you think the mayor and Chief Roth are all of a sudden supporting this? Let me tell you.....ITS ELECTION TIME and they need the votes! If it would be any other time, they wouldn't want to be burdened with a bunch of people holding up signs and could care less about the cause. I commend you and your efforts to make awareness to as many lives as you can but please, leave politics out of your Cause.

I am a parent of a child who went to Caseyville school and if the chief cared so much, why did he pull the DARE program out of the school and why did the mayor let him? Dare officers are valued and knowledge is power. These children don't always get taught at home so the only other hope is by an advocate such as a mentor, teacher, principal or Dare officer. These are answers we as a community need to be asking!

Well sir, I did check with Unit Ten and the citys police dept funds the DARE program not the school dist. So, yes, it was the chief who took DARE Officer Belba out of Caseyville School.

dare has been shown to not only be inneffective but also in many cases encourages drug use
Its just more taxpayer money flushed down the toilet

Ask a couple of police officers why some of the programs funded by the P.D. went away. There is no money, and they helped to spend it by taking unnecessary overtime. When the other city workers took furlough days to save employees jobs, a couple of officers bragged that they would make up any pay loss up in overtime. Not all the police department did this, just a couple. If they did not take it in pay, they bragged about taking the overtime in comp. Taking comp is the same as taking city money. The Mayor and Chief always attend city functions. Where are the rest of you morons at these events.

I personally know him from back around 15 years ago. He is crooked and he's finally getting caught. He use to get drugs and give them to 18 year olds. He tried to sleep with my friend and I in a hotel room and pulled his gun on us but then realized what he was doing and he left. Man I can tell you alot about him, you guys have no idea. When you are 18 and can do no wrong it was cool but now I'm 34 and I know it's wrong.

Removing George as Mayor will also allow for a shuffling of committee assignments which will be the best thing for the entire Village. John Wilson is a police commissioner but seems more concerned about keep township and county services away from Village residents. Maybe he should pay more attention to this matter instead of who isnt sweeping the streets for residents?

Maybe he should be investigated. He lives a pretty fancy lifestyle and travels a lot on a police officer's salary. Pretty fishy!
Why don't you stop looking down on a family who works for what they have. Just because your a lazy POS who doesn't work extra to have extra doesnt mean you should badmouth people. So you even know what hard work is?

Bob? Yeah I wouldn't use my real name either if I was putting slanderous remarks about people either. That us the childish way to do it. Scott miller is 100% legit and if you don't think so its probably because he would NOT do something illegal for you. So keep your mouth shut if you are going to make false statements.

Caseyville does NOT need a township, why pay twice to have 1 job done. Save the city some money and get rid of the township.
