CASEYVILLE ISSUES!!!
Bad cop, bad politians, bad cops who give frivolous tickets! Each and everyone of the village members past and present are guilty of "helping" their family get jobs and bid rigging. If we want it to stop, then everyone who has any connection to the current people should not be re-elected. We need a whole new bunch that does not carry the stinch of their predecessors.

Probably some stupid drunk bitch just getting home from the tavern. Or a coked up soon to be ex-cop. Either way...this topix is a bullshit venue for bullshit people. You were right when you said you wouldnt respond. If they wanna keep harassing people let them. They do have laws in Illinois to prosecute these people. Make a complaint. I did.

Topix WILL turn over IP addresses to law enforcement. I have no problem with anything I posted. Lets just go through these anonymous posts and see who is who. I made a harassment complaint. Just waiting to see what they come up with. True about the use of a proxy, but this "Brad", JDR 501 from a Collinsville IP address probably aint smert enuf for that. I gave them the names of who I think it is. Funny.....a lot this is cut and pasted from a facebook group. Seems to have stopped after a certain person was blocked. Hmmm?

This is good investigative reporting. WE are still a representative republic and it good to see the public petitioning their elected officials&#65279; for a redress of grievances.

Mayor Chance and Chief Roth - people are watching

People are certainly watching you, Brad, making an a@@ out of yourself carrying on with young scouts in the audience. You sure made an impression for the young men and their parents. The people of Caseyville can really see what Len Black stands for as you as his spokesman.

Who could have wrote this soundoff ?? A minion of Kerry Davis ????

Now that St. Clair County State's Attorney Brendan Kelly has crucified Caseyville Police Chief J.D. Roth and ruined his 30-year career in law enforcement, wouldn't you think it would be appropriate for him to do a complete investigation? Kelly made these damning accusations against Roth without ever completing an investigation or hearing his side. I would also recommend Kelly check the credibility of the accusers; they don't have virtuous histories. Ever notice how the guilty ones are always pointing fingers at others to keep the attention off them? I've known Roth throughout his career and he has been nothing but an asset to Caseyville. Ask any Caseyville resident. Kelly has the wrong guy.

Support for the chief

After recently having been a victim myself of a police officer altering critical dates on a police report (in my opinion to help a fellow officer) I find it refreshing to see Caseyville Police Chief J.D. Roth take a citizen seriously and actually investigate wrongdoing by one of his officers. I have had few problems with the police and have always respected them and taken what they say to be true. In the case of Caseyville officer Steve Epps, I am very disappointed in his reported behavior. I am further disappointed in his union for backing him. I can only imagine the pressure that came down on the rank-and-file officers in Caseyville by two openly disgruntled senior officers, as well as their union reps, to sign a petition to oust Roth. Politics should be set aside and Roth allowed to run the department without daily interference by a couple of Village Board members. If there is a problem, then address it before the board for all to see, not in a closed session. My respect goes out to officer Scott Miller for having the courage to stand behind his chief and not bend to pressure by a few folks who think they should control everything in Caseyville.
