I would like to know something. Steve Wamsley was seen on video tape threatening an auxillary member with a knife just outside the glass doors of American Legion Post 23. When the police came and questioned him he denied he did anything. Dave Bussler, who is the commander,of the Legion Post 23 said in front of the police and everyone else that was there that if he did do this, he would be barred for life ! Well, they found the knife he was hiding in the mens bathroom and seen his actions on tape, Yes, he did indeed do all of this. He was taken to jail immediately. My question is why is he still able to drink at Post 23 or any other Legion post? He was not given days for his actions and brings in guests everyday. I thought the Legion Post 23 was a safer place than that. Watch out ladies, it goes to show, if you are a legion member, you can do anything you want and still continue to drink at this post that I thought had rules and regulations. You can't join the Legion if you have not served between certain dates, but you can go in and drink and threaten auxillary members and get away with that type of conduct. Maybe columbus should know about this commander and be replaced or find his balls. Watch out ladies, Amer Legion Post 23 and 471 are unsafe places to go, that has been proven.

Looks like the corruption of the city government has spread into the general public with inmate type action wtih shanks, etc. Far out with this Police Department, no?

Ex didn't post this thread. We should be more worried for his current girlfriend. He has a long history of domestic violence. At least 3 of his 5 ex's know of his violence to women.

Steve Wamsley is the author of many topix. He is usually bashing the Democratic party.(and doesn't even vote)or his ex or her husband or people that were good to him. I wouldn't feel to sorry for him. He has no concience. Also takes no ownership of his bad deeds.

Dave Bussler was the man in charge at the time of the incendent. He must be the club manager. Sorry for the mix up. Point still is, on 4/12 he threatened an auxillalry member and a SAL member with a knife, was told he would be barred for life if he did this, video tape proved he did and the knife was found hidden in the mens bathroom. He is still allowed to drink in the bar. Dave is not a man of his word and needs to be tossed to the wolves for letting this go on. Not to mention, the court document that says he is not to be comsuming any alchol at this time and the order is being ignored by the American Legion Post's, Knights of Columbus, Moose Club. Thanks for the advice from "Ohio". Will do just that.

This is not good news for the Legion. If this man is going into the Legion consuming when he was ordered by the court NOT to, then the Legion is risking having their doors closed.

As for the Commander, Bussler is the Club Manager, NOT the Commander. But, Bussler should be concerned about his consumption of alcohol. How can you manage a bar when you're toasted all the time?

The Post is a private organization and it should be run as such. If you are not a member, the "good 'ole boy" system needs to be tossed out the window.

Is this Wamsley guy a member of the Legion, Sons of the Legion, or what? If he's not a member of ANY of the groups, he should not be in there. Even if he is a guest of another member, that member AND person should be kept out.

I don't think it is the clubs responsibility to enforce court orders, but it should be written up and brought to the board meeting to have him barred from the club for his behavior. It isn't up to only one person to bar him as that is not the way a club works. But the board can do it. So wait until the next meeting, have him written up, present it to the board. Then if they don't act on it, take it to the district legion. There are proper steps to be taken to bar someone from the clubs. All must be followed for action to be taken.

I DO KNOW about the American Legion and the proper way that it works and the steps to take to conduct business and one of them is barring members. Read the book under Expulsions . The board can bar him from the canteen, but not the American Legion without going through a long process. So maybe you need to brush up on how things work in the organization before you run your mouth about things you know nothing about.
If this guy did these things it can be taken care of in the correct manner, as it should be.

He was dating Cheryl from the Riverside while he was married. Before her , he was having an affair with a bartender from the Moose. Yep, he is divorced all right. And sounds well deserved.

Actually, "ohio" is a 65 year old grandma. But she does keep sticking her nose into shit down here that she knows nothing about.
She must lead a real boring senile life in Waverly.

It's obvious you don't know anything about the American Legion, the reason being you aren't qualified to join it.
