the police recently have let the child molesting pastor go free until the state attorney forced an arrest, the principal walk away from a for sure child endangerment arrest and refuse to ticket the commissioner running illegal tags all within a short time span. and these are only the cases made public. how many more are we not aware of? they are failing in their duty to serve and protect. the former chief hired most of them and none of them appear to be doing the right thing when confronted with it. we have a new chief, should we fire all of the current police persons and start all over again as well?

Contact the Kansas Attorney General's office and ask for an investigation of the IPD and related offices. The more who contact the AG's office the more pressure there will be for an investigation from the state level.

The new chief is the same one that has served during all of these! Whether he hired anyone, he is in charge!Corruption runs amuck. There is no accountability.

If you feel this way, go to the next city commission meeting on Thursday, May 24th (5:00 PM) and complain about it.You'll let those in charge know there's a problem, and your concern will probably get mentioned in the newspaper.(Or is this going to be another thread where 400 people complain about child abuse and police corruption rather than go out and do something about it? The last school board meeting suggests this is another "complain, but do nothing" thread.)

You crack me up!! These threads are basically a place to complain and give your opinion...if you are so against them why are you on EVERY THREAD bitching and telling people to "do something" you "do something" buy a good book to read instead of reading these threads that piss you off so badly. Please be more creative in your response than to just type that it is an opinion thread and it your opinion!!

How dare you try to tell us of a way to voice our opinion to our elected officals. If I go to one of these meetings I might actually have my complaints heard and I might have to actually listen to their response, but then I won't be able to come on here to complain, my favorite pastime. I just want to come online, complain, jerk off to internet porn and go to bed. Shame on you, sir!

Because I'm worried about the safety of that poor, innocent child and about the rampant police corruption in Independence. I've made some calls, so I'm just challenging those people posting on these threads to take some action so that child won't die at the hands of that miscreant high school principal who may lock hundreds of high school students in a car and suffocate them, too. I think one of my fellow posters may have hit the nail on the head: If you got off your duffs and did something effective about it, you couldn't sit around and b*tch on Topix. Happy (continued) b*tching.

kudos, I gotta give it to you, well said, I didn't realize you were taking action and challenging everyone else to do so. I thought you were just pissed about people posting. Thank you for clearing that up for me.

If every person on this and the other thread don't pick up the phone and make a call, absolutely nothing will be done. My grandmother always said, "Nothing changes, if nothing changes." I think this is one situation that will prove that point completely. PICK UP THE PHONE AND MAKE A CALL **TODAY**!!! It's time to stop talking and START ACTING.

There are a lot of people around here who drive when they're blind drunk. Can you be more specific?

In fredonia, a city commissioner was going to be given a ticket, but the officer was informed by the mayor it would not be in his "best interest" to write the commissioner "harlan clifton"- a ticket. What is that called ? Sure isn't right.
