There are 5 comments on the story from Nov 24, 2009, titled Former Rockaway Beach Police Officer DAFF Dies. In it, reports that:


Former Rockaway Beach Police and Highlandville Officer, Timothy Lee Daff, 33, passed away on November 19, 2009, in Ruby Memorial Hospital, at Morgantown WV, after loosing his battle with cancer. He passed with family members at his bedside.

Funeral services were held November 23rd, at Morgan Funeral Home in Reedsville, West Virginia, officiated by Pastor Isaac Harmon and Chaplain Thomas Mitter. The procession was escorted by the Patriot Guard to Shays Chapel Cemetery near Tunnelton WV.

Daff was the Chief of Reedsville Police Department and canine handler, who was placed on administrative leave pending a civil rights violation law suit after allegations of misconduct and excessive use of force were filed against him by many individuals named as Plaintiffs. He and the town's Mayor are named as defendants.

According to sources he was veteran of the US Army and a member of the Fraternal Order of Police, which is also known as the FOP.

Daff, resigned his position in Rockaway Beach, Missouri, in the summer of 2008, after nearly 50 complaints were filed by citizens against him and his fellow officers under former Chief Bobby Carpenter, alleging civil rights violations, misconduct, excessive use of force, the shooting of a resident's dog, planting of evidence, harassment, wrongful stops and ticketing of residents and visitors to the tiny lake town in 2008. I was the first one to investigate and report this story, as I had first hand information as a resident of Rockaway Beach myself. I was accessible to the people and got the inside scoop first directly from those involved.

The alleged assault of Scott Donner and the witnesses who came forward to this reporter for investigation and coverage, while I was stringing for a local paper, is what spurned my investigations into the allegations against the Rockaway Beach Police Department, which lead to other investigations by other officials.

You forgot to tell your readers he spit on daff , and then he was arrested. There is also a recording on the way to jail with him admitting him spitting on Tim and him fighting (trying ) the police.

To "white trash reporter,"

FYI" I was not running down the decedent! I was merely reporting the story, you fool, which is what I do and have done since the beginning of this nightmare. Get over it.

FYI: There is still a lawsuit pending in WV. I'm fed up with your slander of me, for reporting the news!

No it's not a new low! It's called reporting which you obviously have no knowlege of!

Stop making me the scape goat, which makes YOU the white trash. I'm fed up with your insults and slander!

I've had enough of idiots like you and comments like yours will only result in further legal action against the city of Rockaway Beach.
