If our government servants would actually uphold their oath to the Constitution than they would have nothing to fear.

Who are you referring to as government servants? Mayor and Council or do you mean the police. Cuz if you mean the police, than you better get your facts straight

Did Lowery actually say he thinks there are 25-30 people in Florissant who he compares to Cookie Thornton?
Mayor is losing his McMarbles.
Oh wait, it's election time. Time to paint everyone who opposes him as mental unstable or a malcontent.
Way to use the dead to spread your message of hated Robert.

Our police are dedicated public servants working in a bad situation-if you think they are corrupt point out specific incidents.

#4 and #5 I hope you are true to your belief and delete the 911 from your phones. Cops and firefighters work together. Some day you will need the police and they will be your first responder. Firefighters-EMT can no longer enter a scene if it is not "secure", they have to wait for the police to arrive, even if a person is bleeding out. It is the cops,they will be your hero. So watch your mouth.

Of course, this poster also believes that we should go back to the 1910's, and he wants to own slaves again. Talk about RACIST! No wonder he hates the cops, he's probably been arrested for propigating hate speech.

Without cops, anarchy reigns. Just think about this one. If someone is breaking into your house, or beating the crap out of you, what number do you call, and what are your expectations?

Nice website, Klucker.

You watch to many movies. cops don't accept bribes, abuse their power or perform favors for public officials. Its just not in their personal interest. The ticketing system is not a racket either. It benfits everyone. Someday you will thank officer for giving you 6 different citations for that one single offence.

On one hand I get such a kick out of reading negative comments from anonymous lazy ghosts. On the other hand it's very troublesome to realize our society is becoming more polarized. I have the up-most RESPECT for St. Louis County police, the Hazelwood Police Department, and of course the
Florissant Police Department. Maybe it is because I have been fortunate in being responsible enough to take the time to get to know many of them.
Years ago, I did, "ride along" evenings with each department, attended different programs hosted by the departments, listen to their community forums, participate in the Major Case Squad and Flor police events, and have many opportunities to communicate with the SRO’s. What concerns me about the negative attitude of some, is that these actions and voices are conveyed to young children who grow up un-responsible. Ultimately no respect of authority, to some extreme, defy authority.
To the fine men and women who have chosen the career of protecting and helping the general public, we cannot thank you enough. As good citizens we support you, we pray for you, and on occasion-feel your pain.
Keep believing there is only a small small percentage of negative people out there who don't have a clue about what they are talking about.
It doesn't seem fair to simply say, THANK YOU, for all you do.

I'm sure the men and women in blue and county brown thank you for those kind remarks. Too bad the current top Florissant administration doesn't share those same feelings.

Most of you just don't get it. The police are the real enemy, 9-11 duh...We are well armed and can take very good care of ourselves in the event someone would want to harm us. The last people I would call would be the police, most likely they would be the ones trying to come in. Who polices the police?

Po Po, I'm rascist? You don't even know me...How many cops have taken part in unconstitional roadblocks? How many people have they taken to jail for unconstitional "financial" crimes? How many unconstitional "gun control" laws do you uphold? Read the document that you swear to uphold you fascist pigs!

I thought the courts had said roadblocks were legal.

The local police dont enforce tax laws.

Most of our guys and gals are local st louis boys and girls-they went to many of the same schools we did, they are our friends, many of us have drank beers with them, played sports with them.

They have wives, husbands, parents and children. They put their lives on the line for us. They love , cry, grieve and bleed just like we do.

I dont have any guns but I believe people have rights to their guns. However I think the banning of fully automatic weapons is justifiable nor do I think felons should be allowed to own or possess guns.

What does 9-11 have to do with your argument? Are you advocating the idea that 9-11 was some sort of governmental conspiracy?

I dont agree with every thing the government does and I concede that there are somethings we will never know that have been done by our government but to put forward the idea that the US government
planned and executed 9-11 is just not credible and at the same level as Holocaust denial.

Con tutto rispetto e consideracione,

I tried to stay out of this one, but his ignorance is obviously bliss, and I'm here to wreck his day. Let's put aside your racism, and your idea that this fine nation and government is somehow your enemy. I'll overlook your Neo-Marxist opinions that his government allows you to express. In other countries, you'd have no tongue right now, for speaking out against your country. Here's the issue I have. We don't create law. It's that whole "separation of power" thing in the Constitution that doesn't allow me to make up my own laws. If you don't like them, you have options. 1)get out of my country. I love it, I'm here to defend it. 2) Get involved with legislation, or run for office yourself.

If it becomes illegal to wear purple on Thursdays, as much as I'd think it's stupid, I'd have to enforce that law fairly. Show me the Supreme Court decision that makes roadblocks illegal. Show me the Supreme Court rulings that make financial crimes unconstitutional. Show me the Supreme Court ruling against "unconstitutional" gun laws. Ranting on and on about what you hate is your right, and enjoy it. But please, please, please expect replies in here from the educated masses that know how ignorant you really are. And please learn how to spell "UNCONSTITUTIONAL." Thank you.
