They don't do anything but drink44oz sodas while leaning on the counter at QT. Thy are fat and out of shape. We would be in trouble if they had to move fast to help us or catch a crinimal....BUT they probably wouldn't do that. They got their eye out for females 16 to 24 so they can pull them over. My niece goes that way every day.....she has a voice activated recorder above her windshield. Heaven help them if the harrass her.....I'M the doctor, her daddy is a lawyer.

they would probably be scared. They could sure not chase anybody on foot....I guess they don't take physicals anymore.

Another young female pulled over at 12:45am this morning. Took two cop cars. She was driving a few blocks in front of me and did not appear to be speeding. I guess that is their entertainment. Scare young women. Bas*****

doubt they peddle a bike. I have been stopped 3 times on my way home from work. I never got a ticket they just wanted to make sure I had a license. I guess they are bored.

I don't see alot of police cars crusing around. I saw 2 Sunday pulled off to the side of the road waiting for speeders. I guess this is because of the high rate of gas prices.

Bella Villa being as small as it is should have morotcycles for the police. They sit on Bayless with their windows up, car running and AC on. They could save alot of money by using motorcycles.

It doesn't matter what age or gender, they will pull you over. I live there. Believe me, it is all about revenue.
Most of the residents would like the county to take over but the alderman are almost as bad as the police.

I have received 3 tickets in 3 years all in Bella Villa, all non-moving violations. I drive extensively all over St Louis City, County, and even Illinois, but somehow this 2/3rds of a mile is a problem. All of the police forces with real work to do and public safety in mind didnít notice or ignored my minor violations instead of issuing the on average $70 fines (with court costs) Bella Villa handed out. Maybe Bella Villa should stop the charade by eliminating their glorified meter-maids and just put up toll booths on both ends of their section of Bayless. At least then I could respect the honesty of their intentions.

The revenue collectors of Bella Villa, or as the city laughingly calls them: police officers, have seen the last cent they will ever see from my pocket as I will never drive there again. Unfortunately for the businesses along their little stretch of Bayless, they too will no longer see my money.

I can't deny that I will feel a bit of satisfaction the day the patrolling duties of Bella Villa are handed over to the professional men and women of the St Louis County Police Department. I will chuckle knowing the extortionists at Bella Villa City Hall will have to find real productive employment.

I agree. I doubt Bella Villa will gave its own force much longer. They gave a senior lady a tciket last month because the had a broken piece ot tail light on her 16 year old car. She did have an order in with the Bucik dealership on Lindberg but they were having difficulty finding the part. She fixed it with that red refelctor tape but it rained that day and washed it off part of the way. The sad part is the fatass cop had a headlight out. Go figure that one.

I do not doubt that jd. Last week a Bella Villa cop walked out the door of QT not even thinking of the lady behind the with 2 12 pks of soda. The cop took off the wrapper of his straw an let it fall to the ground. What a fat jerk he was.
