Waverly police dept, is a joke. The waverly girls softball league is having a tournament for 14U, 12U and 10U girls teams. All told, there are 20 or so teams spread out over the three leagues playing over this weekend with teams coming from far away as Kentucky to play. All of these teams are spending money in the waverly area as well. The entire thing is being run by volunteer help.
"Officer" Taylor, obviously not having anything better to do (and if you read enough of these posts, there seems to be a rather large drug problem in waverly he could have been working on) decided he would spend the day at the ball park writing tickets for vehicles that were being used to shuttle equipment at the fields. This included a trailer that was being used to empty trash cans at the park.
What's the matter Joe, upset your daughter didn't make the all star team? Upset that you couldn't keep your wife and she is now with another player's dad?
And to our illustrious mayor Reed. You don't want to hear anymore calls about this idiot writing petty tickets? Funny, you also didn't want to field any calls when Taylor was down at the ballfields multiple times this spring and summer, in full uniform and in his police car watching his daughter play ball either. The one time, he was there an hour and a half wasting tax payers money.
Because of "Officer" Taylor and his grudge against the league, he has taken a very positive event that was running very well and put an ugly taint to it. Kudos Joe and Dale, well done.

You must've been one of the ones that got a ticket - though I am sure you will lie and deny it.

I'm not sure how to get across that I wasn't one that received a ticket since you already know that I am going to lie about it, but no I wasn't one. Actually, one of the guys that did get a ticket is kind of a douchebag and in any other situation, him getting a ticket would have brought a smile to my face.
You must have been one of the drug dealers "Officer" Taylor could have been out dealing with - though I am sure you will lie and deny it

lol drug dealer? That's like me saying you must be one of the prostitutes that "Officer" Taylor should've been taking off the streets.

Your turn.

Officer Joey Taylor is my hero. I love the way he is cleaning up this town. He is everywhere! If more officers would be like him, we wouldn't have such crime at the ball fields. I hope he checks on the soccer fields, too. People drive on the field all the time when they should just walk. Hats off to such a wonderful, caring, father and man!

LOL Touche.

LOL, I won't get into a battle with you. I appologize for the drug dealer comment, nice comeback with the prostitute thing by the way. I was only trying to let everyone know this wasn't a rant because I was one that got a ticket. That's not it at all. I just think that Taylor hides behind his badge and he has a grudge against this league because of his wife and daughter. Well I have said my piece and got it off my chest. Signing off. Everyone have a nice time defending Joe and telling me how crazy I am. LOL It's all good.

First off I will be the first to admit that Taylor and I don't see eye to eye. Why would you talk about his daughter like that. She may be on here reading this and she is a young girl, and you know how easy it is to put a complex on a child. How do you think your daughter would feel reading about herself not making the "Allstar" team. As far as him and his wife I don't think its anybody's business.

Taylor is a very good Police Officer. He might be down at the ballpark watching his girls play ball in uniform WHO CARES if he is needed to go on a call he will leave the game! As far a the people parking where they aren't suppose to they needed a ticket regardless of what they were doing. I have 3 kids and a grandma that likes to go watch their games. I don't park on the grass or even drive back the path. I usually get stuck parking forever away. Did I mention that my grandma uses a wheelchair. So with that said I guess I am done defending Joe Taylor now!

Complain when we do are job and complain that we don't do are job. It takes a real low life to talk about someone's child on here I am a man if you need to talk to me or say something why not tell me instead of talking and running your mouth about my child.

The complainer obviously doesn't realize just how much the presence of a uniformed police officer in the park discourages criminal activities, thereby making the park safer and more enjoyable for everyone. Look at what's been happening in Walnut Street Park.

As for the comment about the mayor, the mayor should be happy that the police show an active interest in keeping the parks safe. If their are no pressing calls, how is it wasting money? At least the cruiser isn't out burning nearly $3.00 gas running up and down 23.

Mentioning the child was thoughtless, mean and just plain wrong. Makes one wonder if the complainer has any kids of their own.

I agree that the officers do hang out at the ball fields to much I have seen them down there even when there are no games just hanging....this season I got really upset when my little one walked up to me and said mom why is that officer standing over there smoking and in his uniform and driving the cop car.....remind you that my little guy talks about being a swat officer all the time....broke my heart that this guy is suppose to be someone my child looks up to....I know it was just a smoke but come on kids are watching and ask lots of questions....then we seen him down there again with his smoke and my little boy asked me if he could go ask him why he was smoking in the park... I said sure but half way over to him my little boy got to shy...I wish we would have I would love to see your face Mr. Officer Taylor..But Taylor I do agree with you on the previous post they should leave your daughter out of it....

Everyone that spends any times at the fields at all knows from all season that we do not park on the grass at the Bristol Fields. Joe Taylor is not the only officer that writes tickets at those fields. I can't figure out why you would say he has a grudge when he spent half his summer there helping with the 12 U teams. He loves his daughter very much and is a good dad! I wish people that don't know the entire story stay out of other people's business.

My daughter realizes she has to earn her spot on the all star team. I don't need someone posting something about her not making it. She is a child and does have feelings! She doesn't need someone else to remind her that she didn't make the team. She did her best with all the difficulties that are surrounding our lives.

My first question:
"Why wasn't tickets given to the people park in the grass(parking lot and down by the baseball fields) during the boys tournments?

Second question. "Why wasn't ticket given to the the people that double park?"

Double parking has more of an issue to me than parking in the grass. This happens during regular season. I understand that some vechicle are larger than others but use the parking space at the end of the lot.

Third question. "Why wasn't tickets given to people for parking in the handicap parking spots and why do you not check to see if they have a expired handicap parking permit?"

I think this was uncalled for writting tickets for parking in the grass during the tournments. This does not look good for Waverly expecially with the revenue brought in this town by this tournment.

Why wouldn't you just give them a warning Officer Taylor?

YOU should have explained to your child that smoking is not against the law, anymore than eating a candy bar.
Why do people gripe

United States

#19 Aug 15, 2010
Some of you people would gripe if your ice cream was cold. Why don't you realize this guy is human just like the rest of us. If he wanted a cigarette, who is he hurting? Not you. At least he is not standing on the street corner loitering and smoking, or smoking in his cruiser. If he is seen driving through town, you gripe he is wasting gas. If he is sitting and watching traffic, you gripe he is too lazy to do his job. If you dislike him, go to his face and tell him, not post it here for the world to see. I don't even know this guy, never seen him, and surely don't have a crush on him. I just see the good in everyone. And I am sure if you looked close enough, you could see the good in Officer Taylor.

Bash me is you wish, that is just the way I see it.

I agree! I started to respond to that !d!ot!c comment, but decided it was just too stup!d to respond to. People will really grasp at straws to belittle someone on here.

Maybe "Joke" should be trying to teach his children what the word "tolerance" means. Smoking is a vice that many of us have - myself included, but it is NOT illegal to smoke in that park. I really doubt his kids said anything about it at all.

I think "Joke" is simply one of those self-righteous !d!ots that thinks everyone should live by his/her standards and grasps at straws to belittle what s/he doesn't agree with.
