I am personally growing increasingly tired of the power trip cops in this town (I am not the only one, ask around the town!!! CAN'T WAIT FOR APRIL!!!)..(We have 8 cop's for a city of 2,000??? & they are still hiring!!!) They cant find enough to do because there are too many of them so they fathom things and go for it!!!! There are severe amounts of harassment and illegal thing's being done in this city by the police department and mayor.. Also, where in the world do we get all the money in this little town to pay for all of them??? Must be the bogus tickets you pass out like candy and false charges you put on people... We have paid upwards of 35 dollars a month for a new sewer system for like 20 years but we have never got one yet?? Yet there is still plenty to pay for 8 police officers... I have lived here all of my life and I always said that I would never move because this was my home (the people and community are great here), but i will be the first one to put a FOR SALE sign in my front yard if things don't go right in April!!! Don't hesitate to reply if you have had the same problem's or would just like to vent!!!

Let me tell you I understand you there, I interviewed for your Chiefs job when D'Andrea got it. I wanted to keep the department small no more then 5 officers is all you need. But I guess they like to blow there money. And the corporal they have doesn't have enough exprience to blow his own nose yet and then D'Andrea has the never to again hire him over me. But I am better off now making alot more money at a bigger department. Contact the AG's office and they will investigate them. Or sue them.

I think our police department is outstanding. I would like to know what proof you have for your false accusations. Just because we have eight officers doesnt mean we pay them. We have something called "Reserves." We have five payed officers not eight. I am challenging anyone to come forward and prove that our police department is doing anything wrong. And for the second comentator, you just sound butt hurt you didnt get the job. Under qualified...I BET! D'Andrea is a fine cop and a fine individual. I don't think this message will change your corrupt minds, but I had to speak my mind! You people sound like you have nothing better to do then to sit around thinking of ways to be a$$hole$!!

I think NOOBS is right, if any of you knew what you were talking about. You would not be acting like a bunch of High School kids spreading rumors. So many people in the town still believe it is like, the little town of (May Berry) from the Andy Griffith show. Big news flash people its not, thatís why there were almost as many arrest made in the last year, as there are people in the town. Do any of you really open your eyes and pay attention to the world around you. We have a Meth. Dealer just three blocks from the school. Thinks to people like your selves, that would prefer try to find wrong with the Police Department. The people that are out there risking there lives everyday for all of you. You are the people that stop and associate with the drug dealers, convince them to attend council meetings just as a scare tactic, against those that are standing up for our courageous Police Department. I hope you all think a little harder about this which side your on before its your little girl that gets raped by one of the local shit bags, or your little boy that gets hooked on Meth. while he is running around town with these people. The Police did not bring these people to this community, but they are actively trying to get them out of it. What are you doing for the community other than running your mouths. It takes a bigger man to get up off their butt and try to improve the community, than it does to sit around and bitch about those who are. I have good advice for all of you that think the way that these first two people on this blog think. IF YOU DONíT LIKE THE WAY THE POLICE DEPARTMENT HANDLES THINGS, THE NEXT TIME YOU OR YOUR FAMILY ARE IN TROUBLE TRY CALLING ONE OF THE LOCAL CRACK HEADS INSTEAD, SEE HOW THAT WORKS FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!

As for the first guy, he sounds like he's been arrested by the fine Officers in Marionville and can't get over it. As for the second guy, he sounds like that Officer that used to work for Marionville and quit a long time ago. I think he had to quit because he couldn't keep his wang in his pants, or did he get canned? From his pitiful use of grammar and spelling, it doesn't surprise me that he didn't get the Chief position. The Marionville Police Department is a fine group of Officers in my opinion. I have personally been arrested by them and they were nothing but professional and courteous to me. They pulled me over for a license plate light out and I had a warrant. No, it wasn't fun getting arrested, but if it had to be done I wouldn't pick a better group of guys to do it. I also live in Marionville and have for years. As for the comment about having too many Officers, I don't know why anyone would want less Officers rather than more! Why would you not want to be more protected? I agree with the last guys comments. Where's your proof that illegal activity is going on? Have you ever talked to the Officers that work there? As for your slanderous comments about the Officers... The Chief is the best thing that has ever happened to the Police Department here. He has a College degree, years of experience and a tremendous amount of integrity. The Corporal may not have a great deal of "POLICE" experience, but did you know he has a college degree and does all the computer work for the city? Sounds like he can do more than "Blow his nose" Did you know that their narcotics Officer, I think his name is Nick, has years of experience and spends countless hours training his skills? This is all public record! Do your homework instead of talking about things you have no clue about! What has you so bitter that you can't support the very people that risk their lives every day for slanderous dirt bags like you? You sound a lot like a guy I know that lives on the West side of town and looks like a Troll... Maybe it is the Troll of the West Side!!!

I agree with the op and the 2nd poster. How dare the police department arrest people and write tickets! They have no right to pull people over who are speeding, or arrest someone who has a warrant out for them. How dare they try and get rid of drug dealers! I'm outraged - they are obviously on a huge power trip. Don't they realize that in a small town they are supposed to just turn their heads when they see someone break the law. I sure hope that in April a new mayor gets elected and they hire a whole new department that will just sit on their asses and do nothing. That's what this city really needs.

Sounds like the first two idiots need to be checked into an insane ward. The town of Marionville has a fine police department with a great chief who works hard to keep the drug dealers, drug pushers and other criminals off the streets and out of your great community. If there were twenty officers that would not be enough with the direction most towns of Marionville size are headed from a crime standpoint. Criminals seem to like the small towns because they do not have the money to maintain a good police department. Marionville may need a new sewer plant as mentioned by the writer but may need to run the rats out first.
The entire town should support the lawmen they have instead of being critical of their efforts.
It would serve the town right if all the officers quit and went to an area where they would be better paid and have better benefits and let the misfits take over. I agree that the next time you have an emergency call the drug dealer or crack heads to help you. Would you want the police job for the low pay, poor benefits, dealing with the low life's? If so, you may get your chance. Many cities are short officers now and are finding that few people are seeking law enforcement careers regardless of the pay.
Support the good group that you have now.

Why don't you cop's go and stop somebody or something since you have so much to do around here... We know it is you because no one would know all the information you are telling on here except for you... If anyone needs to grow up it would be yon's.. I am sure the troll would like to know what you think of him!!! GET A LIFE!!

I agree with the person above "GROW UP AND DO THE JOB YOU WERE HIRED FOR" The people are not paying you to set here on your A$$ and tell everything you know or think, on this forum and then dont do anything about it. All I see you doing is typing defamatory, and derogatory remarks about the citizens in Marionville. THAT IS SO VERY UNPROFFESSIONAL NOT TO MENTION UN-ETHICAL!!! WE ARE NOT ALL CRIMINALS IN REALITY IN THIS LITTLE TOWN, ONLY IN YOUR CORRUPT MINDS!! We don't have a problem with having honest and hard working officers with some morals protecting us and treating us like they would like to be treated, but you have to show respect to get it. Why don't you get to know the people here? Who knows you might even begin to like us and see us with your eyes opened as a law-abiding community, instead of criminals. Try it, it's esy to be normal it should come natural to most, but cops are a little slow catching on for some reason. AS WE ALL KNOW "COPS ARE PEOPLE TOO" THEY JUST NEED TO ACT THE PART!!!!!!!

Everyone know's we have a meth dealer 3 blocks from the school, but the cop's have been here for a year and they do nothing about it!!! All they want to do is hang out on the highway and harasse people that do nothing wrong (like the troll that you refer to).. HRNYTHRNY are you saying that we give a man a gun and a corporal position, and then allow him to run around our city because he know's about computer's (ha ha ha) that's Marionville for ya!!! Anyone can be a cop here!!! Believe me, I don't have a problem with all of them.. I think that Andy is a really good police officer as well as the chief.. It is the other one's that have severe issues... We have had cop's forever both county and city and none of them have ever been quite like these guy's... I'm guessing it's because they have to actually live in our community which would be another reason why Andy isn't quite like the other's... You have your opinion's and I have mine, when they finally do something that I can tell is making a difference (meth dealer) or something else significant other than harassement (they absolutely love the no license plate light, it's easy money) I may change my mind then, but I doubt it!!!!!!

ARE YOUR EYES OPEN????? It must be tough living right by the drug dealer and not having the balls to stand up at that meeting you are refering to... I was there at that meeting and they still have done nothing with the "drug dealer".. You should be more careful in the word's that you choose considering this is such a small town and everybody know's everyone!!!!!

I grew up in a small town very much like Marionville - but not in Missouri. We had a scandal with the Police Department and the chief was fired for being in on some drug deals. The next chief that came in decided he was gonna really try to clean up the town. They started cracking down on drugs majorly. It was pretty unbelievable, but many of the citizens started to complain and fuss about all the arrests being done. It seems that the drug problem was hitting a little too close to home for some. There were business owners and life long residents who saw their kids, grandkids, neighbors or friends being picked up. They threw an absolute fit! Long story short, the chief only lasted there for 2 years. He was basically run out of town. I know this isn't the exact situation that's going on in Marionville, but there are parallels. It's easy to say that you want the police to protect you and to enforce the law, but it seems that many people actually just want cops to ignore problems they see. A mentality that says, "Yeah, I know I caught Jimmy with drugs, but his parents are important people in town so I'll just let it go." It's the same with speeding through town. If you are over the speed limit and get pulled over, do you not deserve it? Or maybe they should ignore those that are going 20 miles over the limit and just catch the ones that are 30 over the limit. But where do they draw the line? As police, it's their job to draw the line at the law. Now if you get pulled over, and you get a warning instead of a ticket, you should consider yourself lucky - because you deserve a ticket if you were speeding. I'm not saying that I'm perfect and I never speed - but if I do, then I deserve the ticket I get. The same idea applies to drug use, or blowing a stop sign, or expired tags or anything else that people get picked up for. My point is simply that you can't expect the police to enforce part of the law or enforce it for everyone else but not for you or your family. Now is there room for improvement? Absolutely. Any relationship (personal or working)needs to be worked on and maintained. Both the police and the citizens have to hold up their end of the deal. I really hope to see the climate and relationship improve before it gets worse.

Our local police and mayor have succeeded in actually running a business out of town... The Marionville package (liquor) store has been here atleat 50 years that I know of and now it is gone!!! Guess they don't like revenue??? or is it the type of people that they served???

You might be right that the police department had something to do with the Package store closing, but maybe if they werent selling alcohol to underage people, they might of stayed open. Also, have you puchased anything from there before, highway robery, go to Casey's it's less expencive! Stop being one track minded. Your anger has blinded you from the obvious. I think you should run into a wall and hurt yourself and blame it on the president, that would be funny and about as dumb as blaming it on the police.
Next time you have a problem dont call the police call a crackhead you "dumb" ass!

I been a police officer for many years. I dont know everything there is to know about police work, but I try to learn something new every day. In regards to you not being stopped right away I know from personal experience that I like to wait for the safest place possble for me and the person I pull over to stop. I have been struck by vehicles while approaching cars and its not fun. I think your case is text book. If you think you were stopped and given a citation wrongfully, fight it. It's my job to prove that you were wrong and its your job to prove you innosence. I have seen both sides of police work, I have seen crooked cops and I have seen plenty of great officers who try and make a difference. I just think that most people have a one track mind and fail to see the good that somne of us do. As far as Marionville, Verona and Aurora are concerned I think it's great they pull people over for little things, that way the people can get a feel for how they are treated and if that officer violates that trust and is a jerk then shame on that cop, he should know better, but you just cant change stupid. All i ask is to not stereotype, one bad cop doesnt mean we all are bad. And as far as writing a lot of citations and the statistics behind what police agencies do, go to the missouri attorney gerneals website and click on racial profiling and you can see what the stats are on the city you live in. 2007 isnt in yet, so you will have to wait until next year. http://ago.mo.gov/racialprofiling/racialprofi...

i understand what you are saying and i was just joining in conversation i actually think police have a big job to do and respect that and i dont blame all police officers at all i was just replying to things that happen to me and my friends that did not seem right going through marionville because that was the topic and i was real mad that day as well because i was low on money going to flea markets and thrift stores and such to look for baby things on my birthday and it made me upset to think that as hard as it is to make it now days i may have to pay for a speeding ticket when i wasnt speeding. but i do want to say the court atleast listen to me and agree that they did not have enough to make me pay the ticket so justice was served and there are good police officers out there.

I am in no way saying that all police officers are bad people. We have had police officers here for years (both county and our own police department at times). They get to know us and try to be a part of the community (most of them still continue to come back here and stop in at the local areas just to see how we are doing(this is a great little town). The police officers we have now came in with something to prove it seems. They are from larger cities like Kansas City. They have no intention's of getting to know anyone and all in the community are guilty until proven innocent. They have passed out a free pamphlet at all the local stores (my guess would be to try to regain their credibility back). This community is NOT as bad as they would like to think. All communities have crimes, but on the totem pole I would say we are right around the bottom of the stick! They are not here to make friend's or be a part of our great little community and that is a sad thing for them because they are missing out on a little town full of great people. Regardless of someone's criminal past I guarantee that anyone in this town would give you the shirt right off there back if you needed it (and I have lived here all my life). This is a very small town of around 2,500 people and we will all still be a great little community long after these police officers are gone! I have no problem's with a police department but I would prefer one that would act like they are human!
