PO-PO, Forest Park reneges; initiates firing of Lt. Steve Johnsen [FP]

For those joining this story in progress, Lt. Steve Johnsen was on paid leave pending firing for a few months earlier this year when the village and Johnsen reached a confidential settlement. Now the Village of Forest Park has decided not to honor the confidential settlement.

See Forest Park Review (Seth Stern) for the breaking story.


  • Tomorrow's Forest Park Review is going to have some good articles. You won't want to miss it.

  • Here we go again. More of the same. Are this lying S.O.B. of a police chief and crook of a Mayor insane? These two goofs must think that they are in charge of the Forest Park taxpayer funded lottery. Harder and Johnsen are going to own this village after their lawsuits. Maybe they'll promote Jim Lyin, I mean Ryan to dog catcher and Tony "snoops" Calderone to village idiot. Will someone please stop this insanity!

  • Let's see....Doolin announces candidacy on Monday, firing proceedings start Tuesday. Hmmmmm, little Mayor pushing his weight around. Oh wait, he's always saying he doesn't interact much with the PD. Nonsense.

  • How come we never see any Forest Park news links to the Forest Park Post on this blog? You know, the local newspaper that is owned and run by it's editor Amy Rita who is owned and run by Tony "Snoops" Calderone. This is the same Amy Rita that is chairman of the Forest Park Fire & Police Commissioner that will start hearings on Thursday based on charges filed against Lt. Johnsen for the second time by "Lyin" Jim Ryan seeking Johnsen's termination. Can you believe this? The owner of the paper that Tony "Snoops" Calderone runs is also the person that will decide if Lt.Johnsen gets fired after 24 years on the police force. Not to mention she and that Garlish character who is also run by "Snoops" and sits on the fire and police commission each got $250.00 Christmas bonuses from Citizens for Calderone. Could Steven King write a more scary novel than this?

    Same ol' - What a shame, how much money will it take before the Village can maintain a level of integrity?

    How about the $100,000 dollars found in your girlfirends and Harders girlfriends house,Frawley!
    Doolin stop alleging others are corrupt and mean spirited when it is you,my friend, who has destroyed any semblance of civility in our village! Your constant critisism and whinig, are pathetic, and yet, when confronted with the truth,you hide and lash out at others! The Village officials and Police Chief should sue you for slander, but that would only give you a bigger stage to act offended, and paranoid and you would yell,"poor me,poor me, I am telling all the world that the earth is truely flat", but yet Calderone says it is round", "Calderone is evila nd just plain wrong"!
    Doolin, stop bismirching our officials and village, and pony up to the fact that you have nothing to offer but"lies,deciet and slander" and I can't wait to hear what story you will make up about Frawley,Harder and Johnson and the money,"I swear I don't know them", "Must be some logical explanation why my girl and my buddies had $100 K in the house", or" My association with Maywood and the gang leaders, " Who are they and where's Maywood"!
    Doolin your time is up, everyone's on to you and your "used car sales man lines" your out of here!

  • Seems like the Calderone'ites are pinning all their hopes and chances of beating Doolin on this $100,000 thing. If this supposed FBI investigation isn't even for real, which seems to be most likely the case, the Calderone crew is going to look awfully stupid and even more desperate. Let's say, for the sake of argument, the FBI drama dead ends and doesn't play out the way Calderone thought it would. Looks like Doolin win's by a landslide.

  • Your right, "this $100,000 thing" is no big deal. NOT!
    Doolin has alot of explaining to do about his close association with these individuals, and has to explain why the poor judgement of character,if that's the only thing with this tip of an iceberg.
    Also Doolin has to explain why he has slandered anyone who disagrees with his vision of no growth,and schizphrenic behavior in public,and why he alone is capapble of being a Mayor.He also has to explain his association with Maywood gangs and Kathy Ryan, and his silence about all the corruption in Maywood and at the township!
    What's at play here is Doolin's character, his inability to see corruption of his boys and girls eventhough it's at the tip of his nose, which grows longer by the day!

  • Why don't you provide some proof to back up your allegations about Patrick Doolin? Your rambling is getting rather annoying. Maywood gangs, Kathy Ryan's insurance, schizophrenia, Maywood corruption et al. What does any of this have to do with Patrick Doolin? Show us something other than your desparation Tony C. Man oh man. If this is what Forest Park can expect from Calderone and his supporters, why don't we just fore go the election and start calling Patrick Doolin Mr. Mayor now?

  • I dont think johnsen is as loyal as he claims to be. Lets ask him how loyal and trustworthy he is. Hey johnsen I am asking you? Care to reply? Be careful though you may get caught in a lie you dont want anyone to know about. Lets see folks if he replys. Just to set the record straight, I believe Johnsen was on his way out before his friend Doolin decided to run for mayor. Doolin wants to be mayor, because as you all can tell he is a control freek. It has nothing to do with
    Forest Park and its residence.
