Why is someone who has a background with an impropriety in in a leadership position. Ad also was in charge of a patrol post if he has/had problems now or in the past.

Again, the Ohio State Highway Patrol can't keep themselves out of corruption. Don't worry he'll get his retirement and then somewhere along the line get another job w/ the patrol and double dip. This is why their retirement fund is broke. They need to be disbanded completely.

Let's take away 100% of the tail light chasing, accident reporting OSP and then take 50% of those funds and distribute them to the county sheriff's offices. We'll get the same level of service at 50% the cost to the taxpayers. In all honesty, most of the operations of the OSP are a complete waste of taxpayer funds. PD's and SO's can do everything they can and are actually real cops to boot.

People in management positions are not allowed to have the normal "urges" of the people they supervise. Managers must be warm (yet distant), kind (yet calculating at times), open (yet respect the privacy of subordinates), communicative (yet not intrude on their employees), fair and even handed (yet handcuffed by contracts or micro-managing superiors), and always be 100% correct in any statement they make (those in disagreemtn need to be 1% correct).

Bottom line is never "do" the help....

How many years were assignments and appointments politically motivated in the Highway Patrol?
Has it/will it stop? Will we clean house?
The Ohio Highway patrol might be somewhat functional, but it is not regarded as among the best in the country.

Just one more patrol lying scum bag exposed. There are plenty more where he came from. As a chief of a post, he set the standard for his subordinates. This is not the first OSP post this has happened at and it won't be the last give the "caliber" of trooper we have in this state. THEY ARE A JOKE! A VERY EXPENSIVE JOKE!

Darden also faces allegations that he made untruthful statements to patrol officials.

This bum is NOT THE EXCEPTION in this worthless, out-of-control agency, he is the RULE! This is an agency full of self-serving hot dogs that should have been disbanded years ago! I see more of them cruising around in the city and residential areas then I do on the highways! None of them live by the same LAWS that the rest of us must live by! You can simply read the numerous news reports to understand their arrogance and disfunction!
