How long has Terry been getting away with abuse of the public trust? After he's let out of prison (3 months on good behavior) will he get to keep his pension and retirement benefits? The system has to be changed.Vote Yes on issue 5

He'll probably get a paid leave of absence while his cousin, the chief, performs the investigation. 3 months away from the office ought to teach him. Unfortunately I'm not a minority or related to anyone on city council or I too could have become a police office. I would have made a good cop too. I would have lived in an expensive house with new cars and ATV’s in my driveway that my normal salary could not in any way have provided and I wouldn’t have complained when I had to get drug tested...oh, that's right, as a cop I wouldn't have to get drug tested. Oh well, I could still complain that I wasn't paid enough for risking my life on a daily basis writing parking tickets and such unlike an electrician who might actually get electrocuted, a truck driver who might actually overturn his rig on the interstate or a high rise window washer who might actually fall to his death on a daily basis. I could have retired in style too…either on disability (a bad back from sitting in a patrol car for prolonged periods of time wink-wink) or by working o.t. the last five years of my career covering high school football games so that my retirement pay is overly exaggerated. Then me and my cop buddies could sit around and watch reruns of ‘Cops’ on my 52” police ‘evidence TV. With beers in hand, we could talk about the old days of dodging bullets and apprehending armed criminals just like on TV. What a life I could have had. Would’a – Could’a – Should’a but didn’t

Besides these two, whom I’m hoping will soon be receiving their just rewards, what about their family members,friends and employee's who also profited from their scheme? The family members who were given homes, cars and household items. How much of their ill-gotten gain was spent on their children’s education? What about the people who worked for these two? They had to know what was going on and profited handsomely. Will they also be indicted? I think they should. If you drive the getaway car in a holdup aren’t you just as guilty as the person who went into the store with the gun? The employee's did the very same thing except they used a telephone as their choice of weapon. Why shouldn't they do some jail time, have their homes taken away and be forced to pay back at least their portion of the lies they perpetrated? Why should they get off scott-free when in reality they are just as guilty as their employer? At the very least aren't they in violation of this states Ethic's Laws? Should they be allowed to continue holding real-estate or securities licenses? Do any and or all of these people realize the extent of the damage they have caused to the lives and well being of their clients? As part of their prison sentence they should daily for two hours be taken to the town square of Boardman and strung up by their ankles. Then their ex-clients should be allowed to do to them as they wish. I'm all for beating them with a broomstick to within an inch of their lives. We'll let Bubba and his buddies take care of them the rest of the time while they're sitting in prison.

I've never known a monk to pay his bills on time. Not alot of guidance counselors out there pushing students into the monastary.

Sure Boardman's an easy target...that should tell you what a great job their overpaid police force has been doing for the past twenty years. They're all nothing but a bunch of traffic cops, like all the other neighboring towns, who need backup every time they pull someone over. There are way too many cops out there who obviously don't do what their being paid to do. You are an idiot if you vote to pass this levy and to prove it have the police blotter made public and include every cops name and their annual salary made public also. I'll bet you they'd never do it.

@USNBOYYou should stopping huffing gasoline out of paper bags. That’s why you keep finding yourself sitting in strawberry patches. Where do you keep your list of haters, in your diary or tucked between the worn out pages of a borrowed copy of Catcher in the Rye? The phrase ‘sharpest crayon in the box’ is incorrect. The saying goes something like; ‘You’re not the most colorful crayon in the box’. You see, crayons aren’t supposed to be sharp, they’re meant to be used by little children, or by big people who have child-like minds, like you. Do the nice people at your ‘retirement home’ let you use crayons? I’ll bet you’re only allowed to finger-paint. A custom built home does not count if it is a cardboard shack you set up down by the river. Stop telling people that you own a ‘Custom Built’ home. You are only embarrassing yourself. Oh, by the way, I called my local Navy recruiter. He said you were nuts. He’s thirty-six years old, has eighteen years in and has no hope of retiring any time soon. I thought you said your grandparents were deceased. If they’re not then what’s up with your grandmothers cat? Why would you think anyone would want to hump it? What type of person would think of someone having sexual relations with their grandmothers cat? I happen to be an HVAC Tech. Great job, good pay, lots of travel. I am not fat nor am I lazy. I have never been on welfare, pay my bills on time and happen to own my own home (and it's not down by the river). Sadly, I and the many other fine readers of your rants and raves really don’t need to guess who you are. We already know. You are an out of work, sad, little clown. Aren’t you?

USNboy. Really? Retired at thirty? Made a whole lot of money? Been all around this great big world? It sounds like you live with your grandmother and use her laptop to write to the Vindicator when she's not home. Quit making up your life and go get one then maybe some day you can own an above ground pool that's more than two feet deep that you can set up in your grandmothers back yard. Scratch that. Granny would probably start taking potshots at the pool herself the day she realizes that its not deep for you to drown in.

Lock him up (after he's given the lethal injection) then lock his father up, his fugitive harboring relatives up, his mother up, his sister up and anyone else associated with him...that should only leave good, honest, hardworking taxpayer's in the city of Youngstown, which should about clear the town out.

I agree. Corruption and moronic thinking runs very deep in an autocratic, nepotistic society…which is exactly what our school system’s have turned out to be. Unfortunately it is these children who cause the problems at the open enrollment schools and the fault of the matter lies in the hands of the school administration who won’t turn these kids away because of the huge amounts of revenue they bring in which, in turn, amounts to higher salaries and more school funding.

The POE-Lease will be out in force and they don't care who wins the superbowl. The Austintown buggers especically plan to monitor Mahoning Avenue from Perkins Corners down to the Y-Town city limit line. Do yourself a favor and grab yourself a case of Bud, a five pound bag of premade Buffalo Wild Wings from Wally World and keep your butt home this Sudsday. Stay out of Jail free...
