My son just served a tour in Iraq where he risked his life for friends and family and all of you here at home .He is still active duty and can be sent back either to Iraq,Afganastan or where ever else he is called to go.He made a mistake after being home on leqave involving his car ,we had just finish engine modifications and he wished to show his friend how powerful it was so he made his wheels spin on the street.He did not speed nor did he move but he spun his wheels an officer who is relatively new to this town parked on the next block states that he saw my son speed while spinning his tires has lied or purgered himself he saw nothing he only heard and chargwed my son with reckless driving which is nearly impossible to prove without it actually being seen by the complainent.Two witnesses know for a fact that the officer saw nothing,he lied.Then my son was asked to present his drivers documents and he did.My son gave them his insurance card and the officer stated that it was not valid,well the MVC acceted it as well as Wells Fargo the company that actually holds the title for this car.The insurance card was issued in Kansas where my son is now stationed.He had no idea and would never have known if he had not been stopped that it was not acceptable by Helmetta,or the state,I guess .My brother appeared in court today on his behalf and showed the prosecuter and the judge an official Federally authorized Power of attorney to answer the charges on my sons behalf I would have been there but I could not get off of work.The prosecuter nearly laughed at the idea of a military power of attorney ...Who the hell are they to dismiss a federal power of attorney ? Who gave them this kind of power,not me, did you ?This officer is a joke and spoils the name of our little community.One look at him and you see a wanna be someone whom the military would reject,I am not pleased nor should u all be.Isn't he the officer who took his patrol car for a swim :~).My family has been in this town for nearly a half century and we love our little town who the hell are these clowns taken over and how do we get rid of this waste.We are a military family for the most part we have always served our country and it's people to the best of our ability and this is the thanks we get ,laughed at by the powers to be.I for one am not amused and niether will they be .The tickets will be paid but I do believe I will bring the Jags into this because my son believed with all his heart that he had legal insurnce that he has been paying for for years an error on the insurance companies part which is being corrected as we speak.This is just a sad state of affairs what has happened to our little Mayberry RFD.The only decent officer now on this force is Chief Cully he has been here forever and I feel bad for him working with all these pretenders that we think are working for us.Protect and serve my ass,they are revenue collectors and predetors,which is why I left the San Diego Police Force because they tried to make me one to and that was not want I wished to be known as a predetor,a terrorist a glorified revenue collector.I can not say all the officers here in Helmetta are lower forms of life like the one that had the indecency to write my son and cause all this bull.I can only hope since I have not met them all that there may still be a decent one in the bunch but my faith is dwindling.Just venting hope this finds someone else out there that still care about justice and common decentcy.I hope this officer ,well never mind ,his time will come.Justice will eventually prevail,I have to believe this ..Thanks People Of Helmetta,I really think we need to take our town back before it falls over the edge completly.

Truthfully I have been toying with the Idea of running for mayor but I am not sure if anyone in this town cares anymore. We need a real voice someone who really gives a dam about this sad state of affairs,someone who is willing to stand up for "we the people"and not some out of towner who also couldn't care less,she Mayor Martin doesn't even bother to answer the phone or return a call to a very distraught father and long time resident of this town.We do not need new blood just true blood would be nice.Someone who has no political ambitions and is a common everyday working stiff that only lives for Honor,Integrity,Decency and fair play.I work just as hard as any of you folks out here.I could have stayed in the Marine Corps I could have stayed a police officer in SanDiego but when I would not become a Predator,Terrorist or a Glorified Revenue collector they had no use for me.Protect and serve at least in the Corps.,I could do that but here out in this surreal world of ours Honor and Integrity and Decency are just a thing of the past,we need to bring our little town back from the edge.Maybe I should just run so I can get them all thrown out and we'll try again to find people that are not in it for the career opportunities or kick backs of some form or another.Who ever made becoming a career politician a career should be shot....Just Like a former Govenors Candidate once said before he died in a plane crash....How convienent...? His name was Nunzy,I've forgot his last name I think it was Rippa or something like that.He said " I say we all go down to Trenton and beat the hell outta all of em".I laugh but how right he was,maybe it's that time again folks.I do not wish to be Mayor but somebody like one of us down here needs to step up and fix this crap while it can still be fixed...Come on Helmetta say something,what do you think.The Mayor the Judge the prosecutor and some of the council members if not all need to go as well as the joke of Helmetta or favorite ass as refered to by other officers.Our newest Officer I believe,the one that can't even drive,maybe he needs a boat ,yeah he could patrol Helmetta Lake,instead of giving tickets to undeserving young people to collect revenues and hurt the lives of our soilders our true Heros.It's hard to believe but my son would have taken a bullet to protect that officers life and that goes for anyone of us.That was and is my sons job and this is how he is repaid,I don't get it.My son was wrong and freely admits it but what was done to him was and is being done to him because of this officer is unforgivable and inntolerable...We need to change this attitude people,we need our little town back isn't this why we are all still here ...Sincerly Bob Yetman
