MONTGOMERY, Ala. — An Alabama state trooper was arrested on charges of sexually abusing a child and placed on leave from work. Montgomery police began an investigation that resulted in 41-year-old trooper Christopher Bauer being charged with sexual abuse of a child younger than 12, so**my and other sex-related offenses. Bauer, who has been placed on leave while an investigation continues, was booked into the Montgomery County jail on a $105,000 bond.
2 of your police SUVS pulled in beside and behind me at Vestavia Park apartment complex that I am hoping to get a place saying the neighbors called because of suspicious activity? I just pulled in. She wanted my ssn not my drivers license. Why? She was rude. I told her i would leave if it was a problem. . Its called police harassment. What if I lived their and just pulled up? Do your job, but please don't do the devils job. HAVING ME STEP OUT MY CAR TO SEARCH ME FOR WEAPONS WAS WRONG.. I DON'T DRINK, SMOKE,, DO DRUGS, NOT A FORNICATOR, JUST TRYING TO LIVE FOR GOD. JUST RUDE.

Hi I need to pay 2 tickets today and today is my court day. I came yesterday and the clerks was closed so I tried to pay the $370 but they charged a extra fee of 14.25 that I didn't have. I only borrowed enough to pay the cost of 2 tickets. So is the clerk office open. I called but no answer. Thanks.
My husband and I have long supported the VHPD and agree that they do a fine job. Recently, however, we learned that some VHPD members refuse to wear masks, even when requested to. I find this very disturbing, considering that my husband and I are both high risk individuals, as are a lot of members of the VH community (age). Also, the fact that our tax dollars as VH residents are paying your salaries is a slap in the face to those whom you chose to serve. This appears to be a political statement by the VHPD’s refusal to wear masks when asked to. So, does this mean if I have an emergency at my home and request that officers wear a mask before entering that they have a right not to? I just want to be clear on the basis for this refusal and to whom I bring a complaint. Please explain.
To: a certain someone, not VHPD, I have never been treated in such a despicable and disrespectful manner in all of my life. You have humiliated and harassed me to the point of literally causing me PTSD, as well as, causing me to give up on life for the most part lately. I know I've made many mistakes and they were my choices due to absolutely overwhelming pressuring times. The external and internal pressures during these substantially overwhelming times have led me to make choices that hurt others deeply, as well as myself, and sabotaged my past 3-year relationship. The multiple types of threats made against me over the years have contributed to my isolation, my health, and my self-destruction. However, I do not believe that those choices would have been made had I not been a victim of your psychological torturing and harassment tactics. I am sorry for the things I said on here roughly three years ago. I am also very sorry for the things that come out of my mouth at any given moment since my life has become a public spectacle. I am clearly not handling it well due to the constant harassment from people and the hacking of all my personal property, which has lead to overdrafts, missed payments, fee's/fines, loss of rewards for any regularly visited business, and basically giving up financially due to having almost zero control over most aspects of my life. All of these life threats, the complete uncertainty of what will become of my life, the negative reactions from everyone, the cruel jokes, the extremely disrespectful pictures put on the internet, that cannot be undone is extremely unnecessary, disrespectful, and beyond unprofessional. All I ever wanted was to be left alone with my job and relationship at the time. Instead, I chose to put my trust in you people, and attempt to prove myself worthy of whatever you had in-store, which lead to me being manipulated and breaking another person's heart, whom I was in love with, as well as my own obviously. I wish everything wasn't so extremely vague and didn't take, almost 3 years to come to an end. I really cannot bear this suffering much longer. I greatly appreciate the good intentions, but due to the vagueness of most everything, it has just over-complicated almost everything in my life. If I had the person's number I would have messaged them. Unfortunately, I have saught him out to attempt to make amends only to be lied to repeatedly to my face by your department and for him to remain in the shadows. I hope you understand that I am stating this because I can no longer sit around and wait for someone to decide what I can and cannot have access to when I pay for these things. Even the bills or items that I receive help with financially are still my property and my personal business. Whether it be my cell phone, bank account, different apps, my computer, etc. As of now, someone has broken my $100 mouse or hacked it to become worthless, as well as my cell phone, my grandmother's home was broken into, my Acura was sabotaged by someone, and so was my ex's car to prevent her from spending time with my family Thanksgiving 2018. I believe that I understand at a particular point in time during all of this, it became a "game" or something of the sort. As leaders in the community, these actions are severely below you and your department and I pray that we can somehow overcome this obstacle together or move on and allow me to live out whatever is left of the pieces of my life. I do not mean to be disrespectful, however nobody has told me how long this must go on, what needs to be done to stop this, or anything of the sort. I have sadly allowed this to continue for almost 3 years and I have had it. I will change my life for the better in time. I just pray God will bring an end to this soon. God Bless you all.
