Toledo Bar Shoot-Out headlines National News

Are you one of the 14/15 other people?

13abc ran a story yesterday on the police officers who were given pink slips and how they are fairing, and brought up a good point in the story that the City is paying overtime when they can hire back one of the other officers. When Carty is asked about that, he belittles all of the media and says that only 14/15 people care about that. Well there are more than that Carty.

Officer Jeff Brown Oregon Police Dept.

Officer Jeff Brown of the Oregon Police Dept. committed several crimes when he used a computer system at the Oregon Police Dept. to get info on a woman. He did this several times both on and off duty.

This is un-authorized use of a govt. computer. Felonies!

So just why is he not being charged with a crime? This is just Wrong!

He got a 20 day suspension. Big deal. He should have gotten FIRED!

If you also find this to be BS. Call the Chief Richard H. Stager at 419-698-7062.

This has to stop. This must be fixed. Get on the Phone and demand action. !!

On Wednesday morning Mike Collins and Jim Moody join me for interviews about thier runs for Mayor. They had some tough words for each other in the Toledo Free Press debate earlier and we'll talk about that and some of the new things both are saying now that the election is just a week away.


Is there corruption among the ranks of the Toledo Police Department?

Sgt. Brandon was put back on the police force by an arbitrator after being fired, and is in trouble again after he called a woman a ho, and would not file her police report.

Read about that here:

Ben Konop Receiving Threats - IS WSPD Involved?

Armed deputy guards are providing security for Mayoral Candidate Ben Konop. According to an article in the Toledo Blade as well as being reported by WTOL News, WSPD radio host Brian Wilson broadcasted Konop's personal cell phone number over the air.

In addition, a man approached Konop inside Government Center, and he had a knife in his waist band.

Sec. of State requests investigation into GOP signatures

BOE will officially look into the signatures.
The Lucas County Board of Elections has planned a special meeting at 7 p.m. Aug. 3 after its usual meeting at 5 p.m. to “request” an investigation on potentially inconsistent signatures on multiple Lucas County Republican Party financial documents, according to Lucas County BOE Executive Director Linda Howe.

Konop's Wikipedia page protected from the truth

Lucas County Commissioner and Mayoral candidate Ben Konop, who by running for mayor is warning us he is a liar, has his Wikipedia page protected from any truth. With his embarrassing video all over the internet, CNN, Comedy Central, and MSNBC, one would hope that a quick visit to Konop's Wiki page would provide some insight. The man has demonstrated a lack of character by breaking pledges. ( )

However, the Controversies page has been removed more than once by user "BKonop." The man is a LC Commissioner, running for Mayor, and is editing his Wikipedia page - talk about qualified.

Remember, crime is down in Toledo
