Well, these two finally got their way and got Officer Cain dismissed from Stover. What a bunch of ignorant crap!! It's ashame that the crooked people get away with everything and whatever they want. It's already a fact that Sparkes is a liar and a thief yet people will take his word over an officer of law who has been fair and honest to everyone. Officer Cain was dedicated to keeping Stover a safe place for people to raise their families and be able to walk the streets at night.
For the first time in several years the people of Stover were happy with the police force. I think the CHIEF needs to stand up for his officers. This is very disappointing to the good citizens of Stover. We need a good police force. We had one. NOW it's falling apart all over again. Rick, yeah you. I heard you spouting your big mouth off about getting officer Cain fired. YOU are such a liar! You need to clean up your own dirt.

Eric is probably carol sue because I heard her trying to that story at a local store and I think she is a liar. WHY WAS BRUCE FIRED? He was the best darn cop we had!!!!

I don't know a Carol Sue but do know the people he stole the dog from and who he gave the dog to when he left the last time. He knew who owned the dog there were pictures everywhere and even in the cop shop. I live in Versailles. By the way the owners got their dog back after 1 year.
good job

Wow,I was so worried when I seen him back in town. Thank God they got rid of him. He was already doing some sneeky shit. Very proud of who ever takes the credit for getting rid of him. He was no good.

We lost a darn good cop and still have a crappy mayor. I doubt he stole the dog, it probably ran away.
good job

Oh,Bruce you dont know do you...I would think stealing a pet would be. You picked the wrong johnny law to defend.

First off, if Carol Sue would do her job as the "dog catcher" for Stover, the cops wouldn't have to do it for her. There have been a few times myself that I have called about a dog running lose in town. If a person really loves their pet they don't let them run loose so they can get hit by a car or even worse, bite someone's innocent child playing outside. Or maybe we can just let them all run around and starve to death.

Now that we only have 2 law officers in town how do you suppose they are going to protect and serve this city on a full time basis???

Times have changed though "Old Timer". I don't think it would work unless Morgan Co had an officer dedicated to Stover.
Not so bad

I remember when Old timer was talking about. And do you remember there were 3 bars at one time on main street. Why do you think we need so much more protection now. If they are needed call them. They dont need to be driving around wasting tax payers money,just looking for something. We have a chief and a good officer Phillips. Maybe have some partime weekend help if needed. Have the drug task force take care of the meth houses.So yes,times have changed but I dont think Stover is as rough as it use to be. The fire dept.did a great job getting the apartment houses out. Gee,free service,they got out of bed worked for hours. Would the police do that for free? I bet Mr.Bruce was being paid to piss people off.

Back to the original question. What happened to get Officer Bruce fired? How was Rick involved and who does the firing in the Police Dept anyway?

From what I understand, the city council rules the roost. So if they don't like you, you get the boot. As for the fire, there were alot of people watching and from what I saw, officer Cain did a great job keeping people back so that the fire department could do there job and nobocy get hurt. Sparks was running around trying to help the fire department and literally grabbed a ladder away from one of the firemen practically knocking him down. He was right up by the apartment house while it was ablaze and it looked like officer Cain told him to get back. Sparks turned around and SPIT at him and then finally got back. From what I could see, officer Cain was doing his job and YES, one that he got paid for. Keeping the people of Stover safe. And the way I look at it, the people on here that keep posting derrogitory remarks about the police force in Stover have something to hide. Policeman have a thankless job. They spend many many hours away from their own family just to make sure yours is safe. Give them credit where credit is due will you. Or maybe just give it a thought the next time your car breaks down in the middle of the night and you need a ride home. Or some meth head breaks into your house and puts your kids and family in danger. Or maybe you can ask that sexual predator living next door or down the street to do it for you. Don't judge a person unless you've walked a mile in their shoes!!!!
