Our police chief needs to get his men in line, I went to Elders auction Sat. night, and officer Treadway pulled up in his marked patrol car, he arrived about 7 pm and stayed at Elders at least the 2 hours that I was there. He was still there when I left, he bought 2 items so he couldn't have been there on offical business. Also there was another officer that was there longer than that, I didn't know who he was, he was a white man 55-65 years old with a beer belly, he also bought a few items, with all the crime in Ripley it look like there is a better place for our officers to be. If you have seen some of our officers places they shouldn't be or doing things they should not be doing, then put it on here for our elcted officals to and the public to see.

Look...if you have a problem with something an Officer did or has done then why not just go to the Chief personally??? They also have a form you can get in dispatch called "complaint on an officer" you can pick up and fill out and return...The Chief is a good and fair person and will do what he can to get to the bottom of the complaint but you have to let him know before he can do anything!!!

Well,I was at Mcdonalds Sunday and officer Tyus spent 1:45 minutes there talking to officer Bonds and another officer flirting and playing with the Mcdonalds staff, I don't know, maybe they get 1:45 minute breaks or lunch or brealfast time. Maybe I have it wrong, maybe they have all the crime under control and if that is the case maybe we have to many officers and need to lay a few off.

just a question....a good many cops are hyped up and adrenaline rushed on the job if they get in the cop frame of mind. they get the attitude and the bully syndrome. a family member was married to the chief deputy where they used to live, and she had to run for her life holding their son when he would go on his abusive rampages especially after throwing back a few.

then there are the cops who can hold all together as men and women who hold to protect and serve. they can stay calm when all others lose their heads. and they do not get the attitude that they are the all to end all and you better do as I say or else.

do your job, Mike L , and Guest 2, sometimes it seems our locals take advantage of their uniforms and official vehicles. but Guest said it best---go to Chief Temple and file a complaint. If he does not have it written down and knowledge officially, then he can do nothing about these kinds of abuses of power.

I just think everyone should drive the speed limit. He was speeding thru the school zone. No emergency! I do not think he works n Lauderdale co. But tks! I was just really making a point that some take advantage of their uniform. Like the laws do not apply 2 them but if i change my mind 2 file. I have a PHOTO!

You could be right.Just seems like people in law enforcement & domestic violence go hand in hand.I don't understand how some can arrest people for the same things they do.I'm not saying ALL law enforcement but a badge on a chest seems to go to their heads & they are somehow above the law.Just seems odd the ones who promise to protect are the ones people need to be protected from.

Its apparent, they try to find anything to do to avoid a confrontation with the darkie's. But you just wait, Richard Bunton and Rocky Lane will be out this weekend making their presence felt, wearing the leather gloves and their chest poked out. Don't worry darkie's, you want ever see 'em! Lol.

People if you haven't ever noticed, most of your cops around here are rejects from the prison!

People are always quick to find the negative. All of our officers aren't worthless. File a complaint or go fill out an application.

I commend you on your loyalty to your husband & I pray you don't end up like other "wives of officers".

Thanks. He is one of the few good ones we have in the city. Not only is he a great officer, but a great husband and father.

The bottom line is they will be there if you need them . It keeps a lot of robberies down for them to hang out every once in a while at convenience stores or restuarants. I wish that is all they had to do like the good old days

also haven't y'all heard the phrase "protect your own"? Normally when a cop does something against the law & the cops are called its swept under the rug. "Protect Your Own"! I would say 90% of them follow this rule. But like someone said, if YOU or I did the same thing, we would be in the back of the car on the way to the justice center.

Problem is that there are not enough police due to funding. The police can't be everywhere at once. Private citizens have to do their part!!! Its time we watched out for one another and if you see any suspicious activity or vehicles! Call them!!! Back in the old days, neighbors in a community used to watch out for one another. But not anymore! People are too selfish and out for their own butt.

We have to get back to watching out for our neighbors and have them watch out for us! It is the only way that the crime rate in this county is going to go down!
