No. I think he just got a reprimand. They move to another force. I think I heard Indianna. I may be wrong.

I got hit by an officer here in town too. I do not understand it! If it was a civilian hitting people on bicycles. The prosecutor would give the person the max. Only the cops can get away with brutality, bullying, and non sense. I have to stay in my house to avoid the non sense in the area! They city police gave me five hundred dollars for the incident. There you hsve it! Ironton policing force. Be careful! They will drag you to your grave in this town!

FOUTS killed him and chief carey got on tv and said it was a terrible accident. Everyone wipes the snow off of their windshield, are cops invincable? no, so someone got by with murder and someone was crucified on having compassion for a citizen.

Priorities are kind of jacked up with ipd really.

cannot wait until her book comes out, that freedom of speech is a wonderful thing. wink wink.

Blown way out of proportion! I hope they determinr that they should evaluate their police quite often! That is horrible to think of!! I could understand why people move away from that town! Some body please, let town be a ghost town!!

Always thought this incident odd. I've drove in driving snowstorms where you could not see squat, barely 10 feet in front of you. But I could always tell if the car was dragging SOMETHING. A twig, a branch, once even a 5 gallon bucket. Let let-alone a body? Sort of sounds like a cover up to me.

Has to be a cover up. God knows if a black person is involved and is harmed then it has to be a conspiracy against the black man. No possible way it was just an honest accident. No sir, just the white man trying to keep u down. Give me a fuckin break. I'm soo tired of blacks pissin and moaning about how unfair they are treated and how everyone is against them. You are the ones who constantly stir the racist pot. If you all would just shut the fuck up every once in a while there would be no probs. I don't care what color anyone is. I just hate stupid ppl.

Listen peckerwood,I made no mention of race. But being a YOU did we can now see where you stand, you racist nitwit.But I still stand by my statement that people can tell when they dragging are something. Especially when it is the size of a fucking BODY! Unless of course you have your radio blaring, or you are dumb-ass by nature.

I hate stupid people as well. Especially stupid racists.Have a great day, dingle-berry.

I realize you made no mention of race. All I'm saying is that if the guy was white we would not be talking about this still. No one would assume it was a big cover up it would be just what it was a tragic accident. As I stated earlier I am in no way a racist, I would have just as strong opinion as I do now if it were white people complaining about it. Oh, and your mothers a whore.

Mind posting your last name Gary? I think we could communicate much better if I came over to see you.
