You know, everyone wants to bash the police until they need them. I think that what cops go through from day today isn't worth all the money in the world. Yes, I agree that some of them wear a badge because they think that it makes them "somebody", but for the most part, our police department is FULL of very unique men and women that are of a very special breed! They get out of bed everyday, get dressed, kiss their loved ones good-bye wondering if today is the day that they might not make it home, and go serve and protect a bunch of useless people that disrespect and abuse them. All for a grand total of about 30,000 to 35,000 a year. Now, how many of you cop bashing A**holes out there can say that about yourselves??? I'm betting that's a big fat 0!!!

Ok SgtWife... There are alot of good police officers but lets face it FCPD has some major issues. They have one of the best chiefs in Arkansas but he can't do what he would like to do because of the office across the street from the PD. LET FACE IT FORREST CITY IS JUST A NASTY PLACE. I'm glad I'm not there anymore!!!!

I agree with you completely. I love Duch to death, but he can only do what he is allowed, just like the rest of us with bosses breathing down our necks. There have been a lot of very hard working and more than qualified ppl passed over for promotions recently just because "the office across the street" doesn't know how a police dept is supposed to be run but they wanna try their hand at running it anyway! I know EVERYONE that works in that PD and I think they're all being screwed in one way or another. The bottom line is... Bash the damn mayor, not the police!

Either way, if you happen to be employed by FC in general... You get the picture.

You obviously are not talking about the FCPD. There are a few good guys on there. However, most of them are cocky nobodies who think they are hot sh*t. For God's sake it takes two of them to write a simple traffic ticket. The crime rate in FC is ridiculous. If the FCPD is so wonderful why is nothing being done about this????

As I said in a previous post, ASK YOUR MAYOR'S OFFICE!! And YES, it takes 2 of them to write a traffic ticket. It's called BACK-UP! It's a common practice in every state and every town with more than one cop. It's for safety. That makes them smart, not stupid. And not "most" of them are "cocky nobodies who think they are hot sh*t". As I said before, there are a FEW of those. And why don't you try living a day in their shoes before you go talking smack about them? They take the calls they are given. They can't just bust into every house in FC to see if a crime is in progress. And something else you can ask your mayor's office is, why aren't ALL of the open positions at the PD being filled? Maybe things could change if we had enuf law enforcement on the streets. The new Multi-purpose Center can get a bunch of additions and parks, pools and all kinds of other crap can be "updated" but the PD can't have a full crew. Ask em about that.

The sports complex gets everything because it is Gordon McCoy's last chance. Larry Bryant build it in an attempt to get re-elected. McCoy doesn't even have enough sense to think of his own project. He just copies what Bryant did. They are both sad excuses of a public servant.

Why don't they just burn the F'N Coconut Lounge to the ground? The local government's ability to deal with problems directly and effeciently is one of the few advantages to living in a small town. We shouldn't have the level of crime we are seeing in this community. I've lived here my entire life and I never imagined the things I read in our news on a weekly basis. I think most citizens would appreciate what officers risk while on the job if we didn't have to worry so much about our own chances of making it home to our families each night. Just do something about it!

That would take Gordon actually having to do something other than sit at his desk. There is an alley across the tracks that homeless people drink & do drugs in. It has been identified as a problem area by the city. It is only two fence that need to be torn down to handle this problem. Has it been done? Of course not. Gordon is a lazy, lying fool.

The last dog catcher (a white female) now works in McCoy's personal office and is at his disposal at all times. Can anyone see the hand writing on the wall?

I think the FC POlice are great. Some people don't understand what they must deal with daily. Those who complain are usually just a$$holes or criminals themselves. There are some bas apples in the bunch, but that is anywhere. For the most of them, they are alright. The best thing I have seen happen in Forrest City was the new police chief. Crime is still bad in FC, but people don't realize just how much better off it is now then what it was before. At least these officers are now allowed to do their jobs, that is why people are complaining about them.

Yep! If you don't want to get a ticket or get arrested, don't break the law!
