Whoopsie-doodle



BELLEVILLE, Ill. -- A records clerk for an Illinois sheriff's office admits she goofed when she mistakenly faxed a request to have a deputy's son's speeding ticket fixed to the local newspaper.

Joann Reed tried to use a St. Clair County Sheriff's Department fax machine to send a copy of the ticket issued by Centreville police to that village's attorney, only to accidentally fire off the fax to the Belleville News-Democrat newsroom.

"Dismiss this case," read a handwritten note accompanying the three-page message signed by Reed. "The guy is the son of one of our deputies."


Gotta love it!

Great Catch!
I am laughing so hard...
Now not only will the kid have to pay the ticket but maybe the deputy will be in trouble also just for asking for the dismissal.

Let's just hope the innocent fax clerk will not lose her job because of this.

Greetings,

Belleville is about 40 mins from my house and also close to St, Louis. This is just a part of a pattern that has come under the scrutiny of state and local law enforcement. About two weeks ago several police officers and a 911 operator were arrested and charged with various felony crimes.

The 911 operator was supposedly warning her criminal boy friend when the police thought they knew where he was and were about to arrest him.

Supposedly there are more multiple arrests to come.

Its not a "fax clerk" as in a strictly clerical position. The county clerk is the individual responsible for processing all documents and verifying their legality. In this case, she apparently saw ticket come in from the Sherriff’s department filed it and sent it off to the DA with her own comments on it.

Greetings,

I should have mentioned that these arrests were in St Clair county and not in Belleville proper.

But how would the county clerk know it was a deputy's kid if the deputy didn't tell?
I'm sure the clerk doesn't know everyone's kid. Unless this kid had been in trouble before and thus the name was known?

Maybe she did not "accidentally" do anything. Maybe she is a whistle blower. Unfortunately she is probably the only one who will lose their job, benefits, and tenure. Its unfortunate for her.

Maybe her fingers accidentally did the right thing.

Cops, Judges, = Crooks. Period. Even the "good" ones do unethical things to save their own kind. There is no such thing as a good cop today. The thought of even defining a cop as good or bad is pathetic. it should be understood that they are good, but because the overwheming majority are rotten, we now have this new definition of a cop. pathetic really.

No cop, good or bad, friend or foe, has ever done one bit of good for me in my life, and I have not "bettered" myself by knowing any.

Last cop I thought was cool...was an FBI agent friend of mine in New Orleans. One day we got pulled over driving home from a Saints game drunk as #, speeding, swerving....and because he was FBI and the officers were New orleans cops, we literally had one cop escort us hone while the other cop literally drive this guy's underscover car home for us, while we sat in the back seat telling stories to the new orleans cop about my FBI friends Marine sniper kills. We laughed, had a good time, even got driven to McDonalds first so we were not home drunk and hungry wanting to leave again in the car.

For a while I thought it was cool, then one day i realized what a douchebag all 3 cops were and how elitist their brotherhood is. All crooks, even though they seem nice.

Without my FBI friend, I would have been locked up... with my FBI friend, I got an escort home, food prepared for me, and a mental blowjob from a Seargent.

I am still "friends" with this FBI guy, but seceretly I am just using the douchebag, and I think he is a loser. He is stupid enough to tell me classified information, and I am trustworthy enough not to talk about it. Who is the loser?
