I agree. Plus, the idiots need to make sure they shoot them off in the street, so you get to drive through all of the debris. It's much more important for the jackasses to shoot off fireworks then it is for the majority of people to have peace and quiet in their neighborhoods at night. Happy fourth of July! Enjoy your fireworks, and be sure to drink plenty of beer when setting them off.

If it's a private issue that the family does not want to talk about publicly, then just say so. All they need to say is "he's alive and well. the rest we wish to keep private". That would be fine. However, don't say it was a "medical issue" that caused him to just up and leave and go to Wisconsin. Medical issues don't cause a middle-aged person to "vanish" and end up in a different state. Mental or marital problems do. I'm glad he's ok, too, but please don't insult people by saying it was a "medical issue". But then again, we're talking about criminal defense lawyers here. Apparently, everyone in the world is not nearly intelligent as they are and incapable of knowing when something does not sound right.

Kudos to the officer for not showing any preferential treatment to him. And why did a relative pay for the citation? Doesn't he make millions? But I agree with the above post: who cares?

It was either a REALLY slow news day, or this is one of the best articles this worthless paper can print.

Wow. Why is this even news? The Vindy should do an article on how much those officers make and the kind of pension they will receive. You know, a subject that they've never touched on before. Now that's REAL news.

Natural selection at work. I love it!

Maybe the great Kelly should spend a little less time getting drunk.

I'm sure Betras or some other scumbag attorney will love to get involved with this just to make a quick, cheap buck.

And another thing, Nunya, you idiot: there is no such thing as a CITY pension, there is no such thing as a COUNTY pension, and the chief will NOT collect social security because he does not pay into social security. He is a public employee, so therefore he pays into the STATE PERS. Anyone who does not like it, boo-f***in'-hoo. Public employees didn't make sh*t 30 years ago, while private sector employees had it sooo good. Once again, GET OVER IT, LOSERS!

Wow. Why the hell is this so hard for you f***ing idiots to understand??!! The township is saving $60,000+ a year. That's money they can use to hire a new officer. His benefits are coming out of his pension. And big deal if he starts collecting his pension now. The township is not paying for that; just his wages. What would you morons rather see Boardman do? Hire a completely new chief?? Guess what, retards? A new chief will cost a whole lot more than $60,000 a year for wages and benefits. And guess what else? There wouldn't be extra money to hire a new officer. Again, for the intelligence-impaired, his pension has nothing to do with Boardman once he retires, just his wages. The township is saving money, they keep a chief with 33 years of police experience, and can hire a new officer to patrol the streets. THERE IS NO COST!!!!!!!!! Get off of the fact that he will start drawing from his pension. IT DOES NOT AFFECT BOARDMAN FINANCIALLY ONE BIT ONCE HE RETIRES. Apollo, you're just a bitter, jealous a**hole, and Nunya, your ramblings make absolutely no sense. You try too hard to sound smart, but it backfires. And for the dimwits who say "where does the money for the grant to hire new police officers come from?" The same place it comes from to pay court-appointed attorneys to represent criminals, the same place it comes from to provide those same criminals with three meals a day, the same place it comes from to provide food stamps and welfare to people who abuse the system, and the same place it will come from to provide those lazy parasites with free health care: my pockets, your pockets, and every other working Americans pockets. GET OVER IT!
