​Membership has its advantages, as an ad campaign once asserted, but as Shakespeare counters, the truth will win out, which is the case in this week's Top 5 Police Blunders. For this episode's malfeasance champ, Lt. Jim Broderick, that's disturbing news, because he's accused of withholding evidence and perjuring himself to convict an innocent man of murder...

Steve Epps_opt.jpg
​5. Steve Epps

"Don't get mad, get even" could be Caseyville, Illinois officer Steve Epps' credo. According to Epps, he was just doing his job when in late November he faxed Munie Greencare Professionals about one of their employees' reckless driving, and requested information on the driver of the truck the night before.

Of course, the driver in question, Matt Kohnen, hadn't been in Caseyville or even on the road that night. But he was, coincidentally, parked in the driveway of Epps' ex-girlfriend. After receiving a call from Kohnen, Chief J.D. Roth looked into the matter and discovered the department hadn't received any reckless driving complaints.(There was however a big box of complaints about people sleeping with ex-girlfriends.)

When Roth interviewed the ex-girlfriend, she reported that Epps had "done things like this is the past." In the course of investigating Epps, temporarily suspending him and eventually recommending his dismissal, Roth discovered the ten-year veteran had that same month spent a couple nights with a woman in a hotel while on-duty.(Presumably undergoing on-the-job grief counseling.)

While Epps' charms may have gone unappreciated by his ex, they weren't lost on his fellow officers, who queued up behind him like a stadium bathroom line during the 7th inning stretch. Eight of the department's ten officers signed a petition calling for the chief's ouster. Then again, who doesn't hate their boss?

Epps was never charged, and was reinstated after a village arbitration hearing. You certainly won't find a link to any of this on his Match.com page.

CASEYVILLE -- Police officer Steve Epps used an Illinois State Police computer check to run a romantic rival's license plate number, then sent a fax to the man's boss to report the man was driving recklessly in a company vehicle.
But the man wasn't in Caseyville, according to documents released to the News-Democrat under the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. He was parked at Epps' former girlfriend's home in Swansea.
Epps was the subject of an official misconduct investigation launched by Chief J.D. Roth, who referred the case to ISP's Public Integrity Unit. St. Clair County State's Attorney Robert Haida declined charges against Epps.
Roth declined to comment.
Epps said in an interview he was just doing his job by sending the fax about the reckless driving.
Epps was suspended without pay in December and faced dismissal after Roth accused him of violating department rules. Eight of the village's 10 police officers later signed a petition asking for the chief's ouster.

Epps must be a very good police officer because he still has his job. Samething with Trustee Kerry Davis he is still in office.

I heard of this Larry Wetzel. He was convicted of four counts of felony forgery in St Clair County. He has a Florida mug shot on the internet. It says sense he left Illinois he has been arrested in Florida.

It looks as if Wetzel wants to blame someone like Kerry Davis and Officer Epps for his conviction and not himself. I'm sure no one but Larry Wetzel forged those documents. Officer Epps or Kerry Davis never twisted Wetzel's arm and made him add a forged line to a zoning permit.
It is very odd on Wetzel's Florida mug Shot his address is in Gulf Breeze, Florida. Just like the JOHN in the above comments. Makes you wonder is JOHNFrom Gulf Breeze, Florida really Larry Wetzel ??????????
