The so called female cop is the husky one who puts on all the orange makeup. What was he thinking.

The husky one as you say, has nothing to do with this. She is the victim of this fool.

Written on Former Marco police lieutenant receives final warning after sending inappropriate photos :

The winnie whacker was caught with his pants down. He should have been terminated for flashing his pee pee. He is apparently liked so he was rewarded with a civilian position. What the hell. Only on Marco. The winnie whacker has no shame. He should get his behind out of town. We have too many kids on this island and this guy does not belong. Retired as as Policeman now he can probably get another 401k as a civilian. This is a disgrace.

Klaus, I hope you will not be disappointed when the great Mitt Romney defeats Barack Obama in 3 weeks. You seem more obsessed with Obama then Chris Matthews.

In case you missed the funniest story of the week, not covered here, Marco's lavishly-priced Keystone Kops are now to be donated body armor.

Marco Island? Body armor!!!

Who knows how many of those octogenarians our fearless shamuses stop for racing 31 mph around the island might be packing assault rifles packing jungle clips?

Ray strikes again. Get them Ray get them!

"Carr leaving or being forced to resign was a blessing to the deputies and the citizens of Marco."

This sounds good, but the Carrs didn't drop from the sky.

What about the government morons who hired this pair, kept promoting them, handing them certificates of empty achievement?

You are 100% correct.

I say we make it 10 miles per hour. No driving permitted.

Marco coppers getting involved in civil matters. Not good!

Written on Speed limits studied, will change on some Marco Island roadways:

Why is it that it's always the COPS fault? Let someone else get the blame for some of the dumb choices made. No i'm not a cop lover, i'm just saying!

Written on Speed limits studied, will change on some Marco Island roadways:

35 mph is reasonable. 30 in residential area. People are driving 25 in the 30 zone.

Poor Rod Dippolito. Assistant Chief Dave Baer will have a field day with him.

in response to marco97:

Why do we need Police auxiliary officers, why do we need this police force.

You are so right and there are more auxiliary officers than policeman. Talk about neighborhood crime watch that is exactly what these new auxiliary officers are.

Best thing to do is not pay for the parking ticket.

Written on Zirgibel earns second Officer of the Year award at Marco Island's police chief luncheon:

This guy is a good Detective and has his act together. I have had the opportunity to speak with him and he is no dummy. Big loss to PD.

Written on Oliverio arrest ordeal on Marco Island ends in apology from and police demotion:

Joe is not a model citizen by any means. Having said that, he never shoulda been arrested based on the information the PD had at hand. The city is lucky Joe worked something out with them so that he would not sue. Just saying!

Written on Oliverio arrest ordeal on Marco Island ends in apology from and police demotion:

Sergeant Thompson got lucky Hunter was not in the house at the time of the arrest. Hunter fired him once before and woulda taken the opportunity to get rid of him again. Sergeant Thompson is walking on eggshells.

Written on Marco ex-cop still hopes to get job back despite careless driving conviction:

in response to Throat_Yogurt:

In an accident like this, EMS would have taken blood to determine if drugs/alcohol played any part in this. I'll assume this wasnt done bc he's a cop. $68K salary...no wonder our police budget is in the millions.

$68K is one of the salaries. Some salaries are over $75K and above according to city records.

Water on the Island is more expensive than oil. God help us all.

Written on Six-month report: Marco police Chief Chief Don Hunter knows what he has, what he’s missing:

Rumors are that the Captain of Police is destroying the morale of the agency. Maybe giving this guy the boot would be a great start. When Hunter leaves, putting this guy in his place would be a disaster.

Written on Chief Rod: 'The charges against me are false' :

This is terrible. The way things are now a days this could be devastating to this man and his family. Demotion in rank would have suffice if in fact violations occurred.

Written on Arbiter's report reinstates Marco police officer fired last year for misconduct :

Johnny is back in action. End of story.

Written on Marco police developing special training for officer fired, rehired :

Your mama told me one day you will be a man, Go Johnny Go!
Training ahould be very good this time around since the police dept, I heard, has a so called training Lieutenant or Sergeant not sure earning over 80 grand who sits in the office. What a waste of money.

Written on Arbiter's report reinstates Marco police officer fired last year for misconduct :

in response to marcofriend:

Well, the police department might as well cost us money too. We have out of control continual spending from our City government, our public utility is costing us an arm and a leg and they still are hiding the true costs that everyone will be picking up.
I'm a pro-city person, but I think we're getting to the edge of the cliff and the City will not be sustainable with the leadership we have. We have three City Councilers who have either been forclosed on or are in foreclosure (check collierclerk.com) and they want to "lead" us in the right direction by showing us how to spend money.

Very well said friend.

Written on Mixed reaction, emotions to Marco Island's speed limit change:

in response to ed34145:

How arrogant to just change the limits on his own and without any notification to the public. But, what do you expect from a fake city manager? Have you ever seen his license plate? Geezzz.......
Time we hired a professional.......

Very well said ed.

Written on Mixed reaction, emotions to Marco Island's speed limit change:

30 MPH is out of hand. It will create road rage. Drivers with little or no patience will not tolerate following cars doing 30 or a little less. Sad.

Written on With gun drawn, FHP trooper arrests Miami police officer accused of going 120 mph:

120 miles an hour for ANY reason is plain s-----. Having said that, the trooper went a little too far on this one.

Written on Letter to the Editor: Plenty of blame for all:

in response to woods311:

Why does everyone consider this a tragedy?

Without trying to minimize the grief and loss to his friends and family, consider the possibility of a blessing.

An 80 year old who suffered a stroke, avoided sitting in a health care facility, for who knows how long, under what conditions, while he and his family suffer, and his bank account is cleaned out.

There are worse things than dying, keep politics out of it.

Blessed be.

You are a BIG A H.

Written on Marco officer fired for role in August car crash:

in response to MSmith:

I just read the city wants over 100k for more police vehicles. #1 stop!!!!!!! crashing them. And I read every one wants to cut the PD in half. This would not be the right thing to do. If they reorganize the police department this would be great. The Capt has not done one bit of real police work since 2000. Look it up on the county web site. He’s really getting his 100k worth. As for the Admin Lt., he’s not far behind. They have a police officer who is in charge of computers. And from what I heard from the Officers, the computers never work. This computer guy has never left his office since 2003. I was told this cop doesn’t even have a gun. They have two full time detectives who are retired and only do the work they are assigned, that has to be very little. I hope Hunter sees the writing on the wall and makes some changes. I was just told last week that they have two permanently assigned marine patrol officers. Come on, they have not done anything worth talking about except waist marine fuel. Please put these cops on the street where they can do there job and hold them accountable.

The police are here to help and serve the community not just sit behind a computer screen or a desk and collect an outrageous pay check. And as for the officers that lost there jobs they will go through the process and eventually be paid off or will be back to work.

Wow! Some great inside info. Hope Hunter reads this post.
