I reckon stealing is playing by the rules. That's a new one for me!

The City of Parkersburg did not abide by a commission's findings regarding the termination of the police officer. Since it is the city that filed the law suit, then the city must pay for the law suit. This editorial seems to blame the city's cost of the legal action on the police officer. The fact is that the police officer played by the rules. The city is in a snit and now the taxpayer is stuck with the bill. Politicians should stay out of personnel issues and leave it to the process at hand. If the city does not like the process then it should work towards changing that process...not filing lawsuits.

If you don't think it was politically motivated, why did the Fraternal Order of Police wait until just days before last May primary to file a law suit against Mayor Newell and Chief Martin? And remember they are the ones who appointed one of the commissioners that voted to overturned Holliday firing, which by the way is no longer with us.

Anyone who thinks Holliday was a police bully must scare as easily as he did. As to being charged with a crime, there was none to charge him with. Downloading dirty pictures isn't a crime. It's a showing of lack of character. And the "theft" wouldn't hold up in court because he didn't convert the property to his own use. He was simply to lazy to tag and turn over evidence.

The trouble with people "wizard1174" It's always somebody Else's fault. People needs to take responsibility for their own actions!

North: Are the commissioners political appointees? The Judge is not. AND the other officer on paid leave is a student bully also. Student bully becaue he has been trying to please the master bullies of his peers of which there are many. The FBI has been slurping at the bully trough pulpit far too long.

Denver: City hall leadership did their job? My God! Their job was to insist the prosecuter send this to trial, immediately, suspend him til the jury decided and go with the results. IF the jury said INNOCENT, post his back pay for the suspension. IF guilty, burn him, then on to the next trial of who did not push the prosecutor. AND NOT invoke the thick blue line from the mayor's office, namely the real chief of police!

Fatman: If you remember the FBI is, was, supposed to be here doing an investigation of PPD unrelated to this subject which we have never heard the results.. They are subject to being buttered up and they like it. That's a fact.

DENVER: I'm not defending Holiday, but everyone is entitled to a defense IN A COURT OF LAW and that is my point. WHY was Holiday not charged with crimes, i.e. downloading **** (which is deleted by someone's religious editing. Nothing wrong with printing it in the*****newspaper)

HenryWes: There aer far TOO MANY officers in P burg who are purely immature bullies and someone there loves em cause THEY are being promoted, which is nothing new! The BIGGEST problem, here, is we should of been having this discussion during his trial THREE YEARS AGO. It doesn't take a wizard to find who owns that fault. This thin blue line has grown fat in the past three years at OUR expense. This is only ONE of many examples,if you can remember. Sumpins gotta change!

His firing should never have been reversed. The police civil service commission did the citizens dirty when they reversed the ruling. Judge Reed needs to act and do it now and should make Holliday pay back all the money he was paid after the civil service commission made the idiotic ruling. I also agree with FallenMinty1 He is a bully and should never had been hired to begin with, I guess when your dad worked for the city, background checks didn't mean much.

Why would the system delete an abbreviated form of the word *********** which was used in the long form by the editor in his column? Odd.

Theft is a crime for which other people would be convicted and jailed. Downloading **** to another person's laptop is a sign of severe immaturity and malfeasance. The commission has held the taxpayers hostage for three years. Time for the court to step in and settle it--now.

Holliday needs to take responsibility for his actions. He knows he's guilty so just uphold the firing. But then being paid for nothing is probably what he thinks he deserves. And Belmont - Holliday is a bully who used his job to hassle people.

"If he's guilty" Lol.

I still think their decision was politically motivated! It seems funny that the two commissioners, one appointed by the Fraternal Order of Police, and the other appointed by the Chamber of Commerce, that voted to reverse Holliday's firing. are no longer on the Civil Service Commission.

If he's guilty fire him then bring in FBI to do investigation on city and police department. Then prosecute everyone who has broken or covered up the law . Including our great mayor

Holliday is a nice and intelligent guy who should never have made probation. He's just too timid. All this could have been avoided.

A case where buddies were looking out for one of their own and a cop using the system for his benefit. And they wonder why the public is so cynical.
