I forgot to add that that was my first experience with police,it never got any better. I do not sit in my recliner, I do not shake my fist?? I mostly feel sorry for the ones waiting for help.If I had a drunk neighbor with a gun in my face , what good would it do to call the cop's. By the time they got here it would be over , one way or another, just as it was in Gravois. When our house got broke into we took care of it ourselves & I might add got our stuff back!!Unlike my sister who did call the cop's???? Never seen her stuff again. Calling someone, unintelligent because they don't like "MOST" cop's is like calling all Democrat's or Republican's , unintelligent.Just because you feel a different way about a group of people, doesn"t make you stupid.& this is all I have to say on this topic

if you think the depities are such cowards, next time you have an emergency call a crack head! see what happens. these men spend countless hours of their own free time learning how to better serve you. yes YOU! the unappreciative citizen. so grow up and realize that they have a thankless job and still do it to the best of their abilities so be appreciative.
I gree with you.The police puts their life on the line EVERY DAY and this is the thanks they get? When people needs help who do they call?? 911. So thank God we have them. They should be supported not put down for doing their job.
Oh Okay Then

I keep reading how unhappy you are with deputy response time ... but you really need to take into consideration that deputies respond to calls in all of MORGAN COUNTY. So that means that even if you have some big emergency and you're all the way in the deepest pits of Ivy Bend, the deputies could have all been clearing from another high-priority call all the way in Otterville or Florence! It's called "drive time" people. Yes, they're driving with a purpose, they know you have an emergency, but there's only so much they can do to make that LONG of a trip any shorter. So while you're fighting your brother in Stover, deputies may be clear over in Rocky Mount off Y-13 or something when they are dispatched to your address. They are not sitting at the SO, twiddling their thumbs and just WAITING for your specific family members to get drunk and start fighting.

Beengone, I guess you don't know how to read , according to what I made out there were already 3 cop cars there! How many does it take for 2 men,I assume most cars have 2 cops in each? Even if there were only 1 in each , that would be 3 cops, NOT ALONE!!!I thought our tax dollars went to train them for situations like that? If they are trained to go to a shots fired situation with 3 cop"s, sit & wait for I don't know how many more??, While a citizen is being shot at , well there goes some more wasted tax dollars. I do believe they are allowed to carry guns? That is their job Moran, if they are to scared to help someone without having 5 or 6 of them , "they are cowards"!! I do however agree with seagate, there being so many criminal's in Morgan county can"t all be blamed on the cops , I do imagine they get tired of arresting these thug's just to have them be let out to either run or just be set free!
Well Stover born and raised... There is one person per car. Just to let you know that there is about 600 square miles of Morgan County and depending on the year the population changes drasticly. Where are you? It is so easy to sit back in your home and judge the cops. Why aren't you out there then if they are doing such a bad job. It is people like you that makes me want to puke. You know nothing about what really goes on you sit there and just listen to the scanner and make your screwed up comments. I challenge you to step up and go to school, put on a badge, strap on a gun and then go and get shot at. You just assume that they did what you said they did. You weren't there you just dont know. So unless you were there seeing what was going on then just shut up.

Our Cops and Deputies stand in the trenches every day. Taking crap and seeing the things that would make anyone's stomach turn and there are those out there that just want to judge. I bet if things go bad for you the call you make is to 911 and depend on these COWARDS to come and save you. Instead of bashing those that step in the way of harm for YOU how about supporting them, get them more help, on going training and a community that stands behind them not against them. They are out there everyday in your neighborhoods protecting you. You may not see them all the time but while you are sleeping in your warm beds they are out there watching over YOU.
I agree

Standing up.......way to go......loved your post! No one is perfect in their jobs.....the sheriff's department included.....but they do put their lives on the line for the good of the county....with little pay.....and the public calls on them in an emergency and then criticizes them for their reaction time or the way things were handled! If there is a Morgan County Sheriff's Department member that is reading this post, GOOD JOB and..........THANK YOU!

You all act like you have never seen or heard of a bad cop? Come on there on the news constantly!! I never once said all cops are bad , not once! At one time I thought a lot of the morgan county police. I think Stover police do a great job with what they have(go vote they "may" get more help). I have a problem with a couple(3) of them at morgan county now & yes when someone is being shot at I think they should get there as soon as they can .That is their job! If that was your daughter getting raped or son being shot at , how would you feel knowing at least 2 cops( there were 2 cars) are within a block of where it is happening & they are just talking about it & waiting for another. GIVE ME A BREAK!!! You say I don't know what is going on , but the scanner doesn't lie , it is their voices in real time.I do understand there is a lot of miles to cover , the problem with that paticular case is they were 1 block away & not checking it out. I can't see any one not having some concern with that. & I guess you think it was ok for the cop to put a gun to my mothers head & stomp her foot because when they got there everything was ok. If you do I think "you" have some problems!

Well Stover born and raised... I dont know how long ago your mom got her foot stomped but things have changed. I know that the Deputies have computers in their cars now and that they dont say everything on the radio. Its called silent dispatch. For some reason people listen to the scanner and think that is all that is going on. Well lets believe everything we hear, read and told. So unless you were there you just dont know! Second... painting all cops with the paint brush you did in your post and calling Deputies Cowards shows that you lack the full knowledge of what it takes to be a Law Enforcement Officer. Let me tell you, knowing from family experience, just to get up put on your uniform strap on your gun knowing that this may be your last shift at work. Knowing that you may never see your family anymore, knowing that your kids may have to live and grow up without you and your wife/husband will not hear you tell them that you love them. I think this takes great courage, great dedication, great citizenship. Then lets put on top of that people like yourself calling them cowards. I hate to say this but you SUCK. Until you have stepped into their shoes and walked a... oh hundred feet, cause that is all it takes to find out that you are in a truly thankless job and sucky people out there only want to judge you because you ware a badge. Look outside the box or your house and for once look at things in a different light. Imagine going to your job and everyone tells you that you might die today lets see if the gun is fully loaded first to see if it falls on the empty cylinder before we pull the trigger. They step into your life take care of your problems and then get thanks like yours. Thank you for being such a fine citizen. Get over it and grow up.

So what does come over the scanner isn't true?? I could say a whole lot more but what good would it do, except be called a sucky person. I just know as I said before if your mother , daughter or someone close to you were being raped or murdered & you knew there were 2-3 cops a block away & they knew what was going on & they were not going to help, you would "NOT" think it ok! I am going to another topix. I know you will be happy .

Well lets see here "Ding-Dong" the reason the "Wanted" are in the paper is so that those who may see the "Wanted" that may not be in the Morgan County area can contact the Morgan County Deputies and tell them where they can be located. WAY TO GO MORGAN COUNTY and THOSE WHO HELP BY CALLING THE MORGAN COUNTY DEPUTIES AND ASSISTING IN CATCHING THE BAD GUYS!!! See its peps like you , " Stover Dude" who needs to learn to respect those for who go out every day and protect your ass and you want to do nothing but run that BIG FAT mouth of your!!! Heres some advice " SHUT UP!!" Morgan County Deputies have done alot in and continue to bust their but every day. They do more that is not heard about over some stupid scanner than those realize. Sheriff Jim Petty keeps his men in line. I dont belive "You" Stover Born And Raised" could or would go and take care of half of what those men do. God Bless All Of Them!! Way To Go Deputies Some Of Us Are Proud Of You All!! "

I wouldn't say way to go Morgan county SO, all they do is list them in the paper & wait for someone to call them, no real work on their part! I say way to go citizens of Morgan County! Seems to me the SO does less & less , most times they are called out according to them "it's a civil matter"& or wait for someone to tell on someone else. They just ride around in their cars , eat, stop people & harrass them ECT..... Like last night on the scanner Had a report of 2 men fighting at the church, & 2 shots fired, instead of going right to the church & trying to stop someone from being killed , No they met the reporting party at dahls , got a statement , waited for more backup( there were 3 cop cars there as far as I could tell) ECT....... Then when they got there men were gone , caught up with one of them I guess & had dispatch to call at the hospitals & see if someone had come in with a gunshot wound. Sounds like a bunch of cowards with guns & badges to me!If not for the citizens calling with info they probably wouldn't make a real arrest in a month!

Did you mean, "Moron?" And you're so proud to be Stover born and raised. I'm sorry you feel you have to call names to get your point across. By the way, I can read and spell.
The deputies have certain protocol to follow. They are highly trained and put their lives on the line everyday. They are in no way cowards.
Seagate has a very good point. Opie only wants to prosecute for his own personal agenda. His "numbers" are very important to him. Opie has a real problem if the criminal wants a jury trial. Opie cannot present a case in court and win. The only hope he has is to make a deal and plea the criminal to a lesser charge, thus giving him his "conviction" to count toward his numbers.
It's too bad more people didn't vote against him. He only won by 112 votes, I believe. As far as the next 2 years goes Morgan County is stuck with Opie. Thank God he won't run again. He has over $100,000 a year and qualifies for his State retirement. The next prosecutor will have a mess on their hands when they see what Opie has created in his office. Good luck finding all the files that he hides and is afraid to prosecute.
Boy you hit the nail on the head.((Opie)) That is the problem here. The cops do their job only to see OPIE let them go. So the cops are not to blame. They DO their jobs.
