Maybe he should be investigated. He lives a pretty fancy lifestyle and travels a lot on a police officer's salary. Pretty fishy!
I am Jamie Miller, the wife of Police Sgt. Scott Miller. If you are referring to Scott Miller, then I welcome you to come and talk with my husband or myself regarding our income. Not only is Scott a police Sgt., we also own 18 rental properties and sub contract for Amerens sub stations during the summer. I am a college graduate who also works for a living. As far as living a lush lifestyle, I am sorry we don't live like white trash and actually want nice things in life. We have life goals, such as, working hard now so we can send our children to college and actually retire one day. We take vacations like any other hard working American. I WELCOME YOU to come to me and talk to me personally. I will clear things up since you are so worried about my "crooked" husband! It is quite AMAZING to me how so many people judge others without knowing the truth. It is simply a shame people live such hypocritical lives. I know my husband and I can rest our heads at night and wake up with clear conciences because we are forth rite people who live in the town we wanted to raise our children in and where my husband has sacrificed his life for 20 years protecting the citizens of this city! He has handled every murder, every bank robbery, been on major case and help solve the Coleman Murder, he has been an officer, detective and now Sergeant. I am proud of my husband for who he stands for as a citizen, father, husband and officer of the law.

Caseyville is giving ESL a run for its money as the most corrupt berg in southern IL.

Go back to Belleville where we are sure you are not welcomed. While you are at it take the crooked friend of yours who wants to be mayor and your next chief. Right now the peoples of Caseyville have to be concerned with the safety of our police officers. With all the back stabbing going on from some officers, the working officers have to be concerned if their backs are covered in a dangerous situation if they do not agree with some officers about the Chief.

While I am at it, I can understand why you like this radio station.
Romanick degrades women and talks trashy about them. Is this why you have 3 order of protections filed against you, because you are of the same class?

bystander, you are the smart one. He is an idiot and dumb grasscutter who I am sure has been promised a job from crooked Black. So I am taking your great wisdom and not going to look at this page again or comment. It is clear that the intelligent people do not back Len Black for mayor.
Thank you for posting your wisdom and I hope everyone just sits back and lets Brad ramble on and maybe he will be put into a straight jacket where rambling is accepted.

with no disrespect, if it is meant for him to get the position (if it becomes available)then I want him to get it because he is most qualified not just because who has taken office. This whole election is getting far too ugly. I know everyone currently on the board and who are running and like them all as individuals. Honestly, I am disappointed with what some of them are saying about Scott when those things simply aren't true. They have allowed one or two people and their gossiping to cloud their judgement and it is unfortunate. We keep to ourselves and don't cause conflict with anyone. The rude things people are saying about. Scott being crooked are really ticking me off because they ARE not accurate! I have been with this man for almost 19 years and have witnessed the complete dedication to his department, city, friends and family. Those who bash him are doing it simply because of rumors or they have been in trouble with the law themselves or have family or friends who have had been in trouble. We are not perfect just like anyone else but, we try and live good, honest lives and we are trying to set examples for our children. I am proud to say we have three teenagers on honor roll who are involved in school and are productive members of society. If I am not. Mistaken, this begins at home. We are two committed parents, and we work hard to make an honest living. So we have flippin nice cars....we have car notes. A nice house, we have a mortgage. Scott isnt the only one who pays the damn bills!!! Those who are saying he is crooked, show me how he is so crooked!!!

No he was injured in Sept when trying to arrest a thug who resisted. The thug has since plead guilty n charged for resisiting and injuring an officer. Scott has had one surgery already n has been told he will have two more surgeries to completely correct his injury.

You are correct that this whole election is getting very ugly. I think we can only blame one person for starting all the dirt and his name is Brad. I feel sorry for you and your family as I do for my family. Everyone involved should just ignore this man and see how evil he is. There is a devil in this man to do what he is doing to the Village of Caseyville and its residents. When I read about what he did to Kathleen, he should be locked up and put behind bars. Wishing all of us a good outcome in April even if we are on the opposite sides.

So has there been a situation where officers did not back other officers up like your saying because the residence need to know and the state needs to know. Who are these officers?

if I am not mistaken, isn't this particular forum about the alleged wrongdoing of the chief not whether Scott should retire? GOD has a serious sense of humor because he created some really dumb people!
