Whose representing him?

Does this attorney specialize in criminal law because his client is clearly a criminal?

Amazing how the personal attacks come from those with nothing good to say about anyone. Don't know what "junk" you might be speaking of, I own three businesses with none of them having anything to clean up other than the daily trash baskets.

Lets see here. Chief doesn't have money for lunch. So he uses city funds. I guess he didn't have a bed either. So he took a bed. I guess he bought his clothes with city funds also.

So how does he afford a high price attorney? Hey is someone letting him use their petty cash?

Yea I don't understand how he is paying for a lawyer either since he has to steal to pay for lunch

Maybe he was eating out at Roma's everyday except Monday and then he had a big fat steak and all the trimmings at Western Sizzlin...that would add up over all the years he's been chief.

Saving all that personal money by using city money really adds up!
Wife will be pissed, just think of the shopping she could have done?

Whoa there bud, Donnie didn't make the chief steal from the city and he didn't make him take city property and use it for personal use like a bed and a flat screen t.v.

Right?

What else has happened we haven't heard about in the time this yahoo has been chief?

We aren't paying him to be perfect but it's reasonable to expect him not to break the law!

First of all the money was paid back and the other allegations are falling apart fast and furious. The bed you alleged he took was to be thrown away and I dont think he took a bed to begin with, the clothing he bought was no different than all the uniforms he bought for all the officers, some of the officers also got the same sunglasses and shirts that the chief did. So maybe it is not as bad as some of the officers want all of us to understand. I know that a lot of the purses that where at the PD where given as gifts by many members of the PD, as well as sun glasses, and DVDs so they all stole didn't they. Just saying you might want to wait and see what shakes out before you start saying all that bad stuff.

Let me understand your post exactly the way you meant it ok? Just because the chief and the remaining officers had the same behavior, somehow that's suppose to make it all okey dokey?

Talk about rationalization!

Taking city funds to use for personal use is breaking the freaking law. That one violation is enough for him to be kicked to the curb!
Allowing such incredibly low standards is why Sallisaw and Sequoyah County has a infamous reputation instead of famous.

Unbelievable!

you are nothing but a trouble maker and go off what you've heard or read in Sequoyah County Times which is mostly made up stories. You need a life outside of Topix.
