This is some funny stuff! Not sure why the mayor of Franklin had to drive around the accident scene on the sidewalk. I was able to get my SUV around the two vehicles involved in the accident a couple of times without leaving the roadway. But then again, now that I know who he is, I'm not surprised. The Springboro cops could also get him for speeding through the neighborhood almost anytime he comes through.

John Agenbroad better be careful driving through Franklin... The Franklin cops probably have an APB out on him. The Franklin men in blue will probably also start citing Springboro cops for doing u-turns at the 75 south entrance ramp. The feud has begun. The rednecks will retaliate to defend their leaders honor!

Stupid is as stupid does.
These days it seems that hillrats necessarily don't have to come from the hills.
When it comes to observance of traffic laws, possessing the title of Grand-Pooh-Bah of Franklin shouldn't allow Bray any more slack than Franklin football trainers or any other citizen for that matter.

That mayor was way out of line makes me sick to think that he can get out of a ticket because he thinks he is somebody special.

I'm (MP) military policeman and going to the academy in January and I would issued him more then just one for driving on the sidewalk. Starting with disorderly conduct.

Franklin police agencies have been targetting Springboro residents for a while now - a way to increase revenue. Sit in the traffic court and here the prosecutor make insane deals with mulitple offense drunk drivers living in Franklin, but a springboro resident gets hammered and disrespected for a very minor, technical traffic violation. Hickille - goo ole boy to the extreme. All people from Springboro should boycott all businesses in Franklin. Stay out of Franklin.

Ha ha people stating we should boycott business in Franklin that will show those police go get them who them who the boss is. You claim Franklin is guilty of being harsh on Springboro residents. Have you seen how Springboro treats their own they are just as guilty of targeting residents for revenue. So they meet there quota they aren't supposed to have.

Put your bullet back in your shirt pocket Barney. You
aren't even sworn in yet and you're ready to throw
the book. You didn't say which police dept. you want
to work for but I would suggest someplace challenging
like Detroit or LA

I know Bray well.... while I do not live in Franklin, I do work in the city and can tell you that Bray does not have the respect of the Police Dept. He is a loud mouthed, arrogant man who should be investigated by several state agencies.
I will also say that the Springboro and Franklin Police Depts. are not feuding. And to say "Franklin police agencies have been targeting Springboro residents for a while now - a way to increase revenue".... WOW, that's the most asinine thing I've heard in a long time. And that means a lot in this day of Obama.

Actually its not that absurd.

Cities and Towns that have low crime - use their police departments to generate revenue.

The Springboro police dept. Is way too big for the amount of crime and number of residents.

But since they generate huge revenue for the city, no one has the balls to cut the officers down to a reasonable size.

So what everyone is calling "harassment" is Actually another "Tax".

Springboro police needs to be disbanded, and re-built.

So, how big should the police department be? Since you know they are "way too big". And how much revenue do they generate? Its easy to quarterback from the sidelines......
