Yeppers, nip.s is a bad bad word! LOL My husband read this last night and busted out laughing and he has been teasing ever since.

He keeps telling me that if I use that bad word again he's calling the Salem news and telling them to come up with the punishment. Thanks a lot Salem news!

"James, I request permission to complain about your complaining about Grant complaining about WatchDog complaining."

Welp, I guess that about **** in the bud that Grant can't use that one liner anymore! LOL

"What does she ever do but complain?"

Complaining is only what the other complainer perceives.

"I agree with Watchdog , you should have the officer reprimanded."

Well, thanks for the agreement but I didn't exactly say that. My point was simple. If you going to point a finger at an unnamed police officer and you are highly upset about what you are saying that there is an avenue to consider if you feel that strongly about it. Doesn't mean the unknown officer is going to be reprimanded. But he probably would be more than happy to ensure that it won't happen again if it did happen.

But having said that. I bet that Chief Panezott has already addressed this issue. As if we are all not to smart enough to believe he reads the newspaper. I trust he is doing the right thing.

This man can only be as successful as our "eyes and ears" to assist him.

WatchDog and Grant Mingus this needs to stop. dfrom12 if that is the case, something should be said considering the studies related to accidents involving texting and driving. I too have seen an officer doing the same thing during the day, not absolutely positive it was this one though. I agree with Watchdog , you should have the officer reprimanded.

I assume for the same reason all us complain, even you. Isn't that what you just did? Complain about her complaining? Complaining about police utopia. Come on Mingus you have made many comments of complaints. Can't be right for you and not her.

Why don't tell us what you meant by a police utopia? She wants to support the pd, why don't you want to see that happen? I think they could use some support. We all have to work with them if they are going to clean up this scum in this town. Did you miss the other comments she wrote? Maybe because she didn't phrase exactly how you wanted isn't reason for that trashy comment you wrote about her. That is wrong.

Mingus wth? What did she say now that would have you come out with such a trashy comment towards her and the pd.

Am I missing something here? if she had been complaining these cops didn't need these vests, they are wasting money, would that have made you happy? I don't get this. i don't understand your beef. Explain this to me because I am seeing this almost the same way she is. what was wrong with what she said?

Or are you going to dance now?

dfrom12 sez: "That's the officer who drives around texting and driving. Isn't that a law in Ohio now?"

What officer? Those units are clearly marked. Did you bother to take the time to go see Chief Panezott and lodge that complaint against the officer? Just curios?

Yes dear, we know, Grant, why don't you just save yourself some time and copy that comment you made and just paste it on every news story. Get it over with. It is the same routine with you over and over and over and over and over and over and over. <grin>

Why didn't the chief take the grant money.

Probably because he hasn't applied for it yet .

This man should be credited for the many changes he's made in a short time rather than bad mouth every decision he makes

You're legitimately psychotic. You lie on a daily basis, you make up a narrative on your own and go off on people about whatever it is you made up. Even if it stands in direct contrast to evidence of things that have been said RIGHT HERE. You complain about ANYTHING and EVERYTHING. You play the "hit and run" game that you claim so many others play. You say outrageous things. You spread lies and rumors about people you don't know just for your own pleasure. You try to play the victim and get people to feel sorry for you after doing all of this. You wish ill will towards people all of the time, especially me. You are the scum of the Earth Watchdog.

Where does my IP address say I'm at? LOL...by the way, I know you made it up when you said you were tracking IP's, but I think I have the root cause of that ridiculous claim figured out. It's called projection. You're a joke.

Grant lose the 911 number. Make absolutely certain that if your business is broken into by an armed burglar, you HANDLE IT. We sure wouldn't want the police and their police state utopia to take the bullet for the likes of you.

Protecting police officer's lives is considered a police state utopia by Mr. Grant Mingus, imagine that?

Grant, how much lower do you have to go keep this sick game you are playing alive? How much respect do you think you garnered from the Salem Police department or the people in this community that support their efforts with that stupid low life response?

Keep talking Mingus.

Please do us all of a favor and move to a city that is less embarrassing. I'm sure your police state utopia is out there somewhere.

Tell me again why city council felt blowing $20,000 dollars on a non priority issue for "extravaganza civic pride" signs was more important than the life of an officer or the equipment they need to be effective and efficient in their jobs?

Yep, lots of reason to be proud of this embarrassing City, yeah right.

Don't think that is going to be possible NS, looks like the old ones will be the hand me downs to the new part timers. As if that is real comfy and cozy to imagine.

Instead of the Chief worrying about refunding back the money as "unacceptable" and ridiculous that is in any standard, why don't the Chief just take the grant money and ENSURE every officer of that department has a vest to ensure their safety and stop worrying about refunding back money you should have had in the first place from the City for EVERY OFFICER.
