I put up a truthful statement about Bernie Thompson and it was deleted. Why is that? I guess we'll have to wait til the newspaper comes out and says what he's doing. You ought to be ashamed, protecting Bernie........sad.

There is so much corruption and vile activity going on with your leaders in Manteno. When it comes out people are going to be outraged and stunned. But, these are the same people who have allowed this bastard to be in charge. Fasten your seat belts. It's going to by a bumpy ride.

Wondering, You make alot of dramatic statements but give no detail or other information. What do you know because so far, you just sound like a bitter ex employee or other enemy of the police chief. Any proof of anything?! Even a little something to show your not just some crazy guy on the internet? Waiting.....

Thanks for clearing up the mystery (Blow your mind.) With all your exacting facts and specific information, no one would ever assume that you dont know what you are talking about...(Being sarcastic.) Just yelling "Wait and see, Wait and see!!!" over and over again does not make it true. It was said before and it still applies. You are an ex employee and or an enemy of the chief. Stay off the internet before an adult catches you...

Today's Journal says Grant Park chief out and acting chief?? and Momence chief out, I guess that just leaves Manteno to be next.

Someone said "Don't complain when the savior is led away in cuffs with his card carrying puppy." Please enlighten me. I am aware of some serious stuff going on. I know people are being watched. What is the deal here? Good guys, bad guys? Who's the savior, whose the puppy?

Bernie Thompson, Tim Nugent, and Jamie Boyd. They are as corrupt as they get. And stupid. More worried about the taxpayers paying for their beer, than the wrongdoing going on. And Uncle Bernie is part of a federal investigation for some pretty horrific stuff.

I don't believe there is one 'Honest" cop in Central Floirda. If their not crooked they will lie for other crooked cop or shut their crooked mouths when they see one commit a crime. Walt Disney Company loves crooked cops!

What is going on in Manteno. I have heard very bad things about the powers that be? What is the deal. I heard a story about police harassment that was off the wall. Crazy. throwing down drugs on a dude and making crazy threats......
Question

Forgive me here, but why was Fitts arrested in a Grant Park prostitution sting in Manteno and Bernie not knowing what was going on. Pure bs. Bernie is pure bs. Bernie is going down, for more stuff. Mark my word. He, his sex offender nephew and the Mom who served up her kids. They've been banking off the backs of little kids. It's beyond sick. And Bernie's connections with the cops too. It's a mess. I talked to a 30 year cop who said its all bs. Bernie knew and was part of everything.
