Why is it the West Frankfort Police officers uphold the laws different for oyu when you live in houseing. I had two West Frankfort Police officers tell me to get use to it because I live in housing. One even told me since he pays my bills he would call the Franklin County Housing Authority and have me kicked out of housing. So I told him let me guess if I lived in a house and not housing, you would not act this why to me. I called the so called mayor Marion Presly. And he said well in my days we did not complaint or call the police on kids fighting. I told him now days is why different then back then. And this was a 13-15 year old hitting kicking and pushing a 4,5,6,and 8 year old kids for no reason.

Let me guess...you went to public school, too. I can tell by your incomparable spelling skills.

P.S. Incomparable means there's nothing else like it.

Why is everyone so negative. Life is tough enough. Where are the manners, the support. We will never grow as long as we keep pushing people back and not helping each other through the already difficult hardships.

Housing or not, public school or not, no one is perfect.

Okay, I'm ready for the negative feedback, or I'm hoping someone will just read this and not let this comment control your response.

Don't give in all the time to what the other person says. You only stoop to their level.

Have a great day!

What in your opinion is success, because i'm sorry living in the housing doesn't make you scum! I don't live there i but have you actually checked on the price of rent now days! I'm sorry but you would have to be rich to be a success in wf and there aren't many rich people here!

Well for all the smart ass on here. It just goes to show what I am talking about. For some reason all these people like to down grade you for living in housing. Tax payer, Instant Fix, handtomouth, Here4Now all a bunch of idoits. They have nothing better to do. Well for one I pay $350 a month plus all my bills. I worked 15 years as a Firefighter/Medic and was injured. So I have did my fair share of paying taxes. This just goes to show my point. For some reason everyone downgrades poeple for trying to make it. I just pray one day you dips will be in the same boat. Oh Ya thats right it can not happen to you right.

Excuse me, but I think your comment ( Watch the way you talk to us ) is way out of line. I'm a taxpaer and I would never talk to another person like that no matter where they live. To me you are just a little prejudice. A Christian would never say something like that.

I had an incident tonight with 2 boys stealing off my front porch while I was in my home eating dinner. The kids walked up right in front of us and stole. I am a homeowner in this town. It doesn't matter WHAT was stolen. The point is the kids were trespassing and it's a theft. I called the police. We had 2, count them, 2 cops on duty on a Friday night. The dispatcher advised me the officer was "busy with a domestic matter" and she would have him come over when he was done. Meanwhile I got in my vehicle with my camera to try to find these boys so I could take their picture so when the officer came he'd know who to look for.
The officer called the house and spoke to my husband. He advised my husband he has more important things to do than come over to our house for the item(s) stolen off my porch. He also advised my husband he better call me back home due to it was not my place to go looking for these kids. Meanwhile I came back home. I called the officer back and advised him what I was doing. He advised me I had no right to go looking for these boys. I went off and advised him I am a taxpaying citizen in this town who works everyday as does my husband. I advised him he needs to come over to my house and I will be filing charges against these boys for theft and trespassing.
This all happened at about 5:30 PM Friday, Sept 3, 2010. It is now almost 8:30 PM and I've still to see an officer pull up to my house. There is more to the conversation but why bother.
In closing, these are the loser police officers we have in West Frankfort who are supposed to "protect and serve". So don't start this crap about people who live in housing being treated differently. The homeowners who pay taxes etc. in this town are treated badly also. It's pretty scary when you have a police officer deciding what's important and what's not. A citizen in this community should be able to count on their police force no matter what the situation is.
Just to reiterate "protect and serve" ... that's why you became a police officer in the first place isn't it?

Let's see, now a theft, is more important than a domestic, Just saying that something should be done after the domestic, but some of you people think that police should drop what there doing at the time you call and beam them self right over. Well with two officers on that's hard to do. If they made a Arrest on the domestic that take's hours to do with paper work. But again after, they should have made contact with you.Try spending a week or so with a police officer, it's not like a movie "case closed go home". And when we do get a call, we have to be a cop, lawyer, doctor, secretary, actor ( so we don't say what we really think) shrink. All on low pay scale. So now you are going to say if you don't like it find another job. Well that might be true, But the person(s) replacing us will say the same thing to after a short while. Sorry this is not just about the theft call, that should have been taken care of, this is all about the bashing on the police. And I think what the officer was telling you about hunting down the two boy's was for your own safety, who to say they was not armed.

I understand the incident itself of the domestic is more important than 2 boys trespassing on my property and stealing my possessions. That wasn't my issue at all. I do have an issue as far as the paperwork after goes though, with only 2 officers on duty on a Friday night the paperwork could wait and they would be out there taking care of issues on the streets. As far as police officers being "a cop, lawyer, doctor, secretary, actor...", there are a ton of people in this world in a for lack of a better way to say it 'customer service' position. I myself am in one of these types of positions in my line of work and deal with issues repeatedly everyday.

To reiterate where my issue with the whole incident is being 'poo, pooed' the way I was. The town I grew up in for most of my life the officers aren't and have NEVER been this way. They make the citizens of their community feel safe and no matter how small the issue is, they make them feel it is matters. You state you need to be a doctor above. Well to be a really good doctor, you need to have a good bedside manner eh? You want your patient to trust you feel he/she is in good hands.

Lastly, the officer did finally show up last night at about 10:30 PM. Thank goodness I was still up.
