Where’s Phelix?

Welcome to the first episode of a little game I’d like to call “Where’s Phelix?”

In Wednesday’s Bedford Times-Mail, there was an article entitled “Orleans police car rammed“. The article states, in part:

Officers from the Mitchell and Orleans police departments attempted to serve an arrest warrant on Phillip Haverly, 48, Franklin, while he was in the parking lot of the Fifth Third Bank in Orleans at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to an Indiana State Police news release. The warrant was for possession of a controlled substance.

Haverly resisted police and police officers attempted to block his path. To escape, Haverly rammed Orleans Police Chief Roy W. McFarland’s squad car.

McFarland’s same car was rammed by another suspect, Kevin Cook, exactly two months ago, on Nov. 16. The damage from that crash had already been repaired by Tuesday, according to Orleans Police Officer Jordan Cain Gilstrap. After Haverly escaped, he went eastbound on Ind. 337, and Indiana State Police Trooper Dave Henderson found him about three miles east of Orleans. Haverly’s black Chevrolet car became disabled, and Haverly fled on foot. He was found hiding behind a tree in an adjacent field.

Notice anything about the Mitchell Police Department in there? It says that “…officers from the Mitchell and Orleans police departments…”, yet there’s never any mention of what role the MPD had. Well, let me tell you why…

Apparently, the Mitchell Police Department — in other words, “Flex” — was there to assist. Unfortunately for him, Flex apparently got his highways mixed up after the guy hit the Orleans police car and took off. While Indiana State Police Trooper Dave Henderson pursued the guy down Highway 337, Flex went flying down Highway 37 — the complete opposite direction — in a mad search for the guy. Fortunately for Flex — but unfortunate for Haverly — the ISP trooper decided it would probably be a good idea to chase Haverly by driving in the same direction that he was — unlike Phelix — and caught up to him.

Of course, none of that was mentioned in the press release, right? Oh wait, I forgot — Flex writes his own press releases, so of course that’s not in there. I mean, why would he intentionally show the world how much of a fuck up he is, especially when I’m here to help out!?

In addition, there are a number of thoughts that come to mind about why the hell the Mitchell Police Department were even attempting to serve a warrant in Orange County anyways. I’ll grant you that Orleans is very small and used to only have one cop on duty at a time (no idea if that’s changed within the last few years). Even given that, however, they have a whole Sheriff’s Department to assist in matters like this.

Mitchell citizens, there’s your tax dollars hard at work once again. Stay tuned for the next episode of “Where’s Phelix?”. It’ll be aired just as soon as he makes another stupid mistake. When — not if.

Just wait a few weeks when the election gets close. They are only going to be able to write 10 per day. I just got the paper and saw were Chastain is going to run a third term. I remember him telling me that he was only going to run two times. Get this, his slogan then was "Someone you can trust". I laugh my ass off now.

I think the "Where's Phelix" is a great idea. Anyone seeing the blimp can report it to this site and we can keep better track on when and where the blimp is going to land. How about it?? It would also show the activity of this web site and how much we hate the blimp. I heard he was guarding the door at Bloomington bar? Is that true, and was he driving the Mitchell Police car to this location?

FUCK YOU ASSHOLES
FUCK YOU ASSHOLES

Thanks for taggining my car assholes! But you won't get to tow it because I'll put a tarp on it and then you can't see it. So fuck you fat bastards! One day our kids will have to go to school together and you won't always be there. Then, maybe my kid will get to your kid to stop using drugs. I bet they get the good ones because you have the hook up. It must be nice to make 30k + and be able to afford plates at the drop of the hat. Maybe you should be poor and see how it is from our side. But you wouldn't know that because you don't have to actually work for a living or have to worry where you next meal is going to come from. I bet you don't have to go to a friends house just to use a computer. Maybe you should be poor for a week and then you would'nt be so hostle towards people that have to cut corners so their kids can eat. eat shit mitchell cops! your a bunch of worthless bastards, the state highway should come pick you up and use you for construction barrells. Thanks for making this site, I hope more people come notice how Mitchell has gone downhill since hancock let office and the jobs keep disappearing. Soon to be a residence in a ghost tone, A pissed off VOTING citizen

Flex always thought he worked for the Indiana State Police, but I think his fat and short image kept him from being one. Instead of wrecking everyones life Flex, do something good for the community, something positive, hell, one of them might marry your daughter one day!

I think the real point of the car in the water issue came about a week or two after the incident. Phelix stated. in a letter to the editor, that the city of Mitchell was not out any money for THE SOUTHERN INDIANA DRUG TASK FORCE paid the deductible to the insurance company. 1. There is no way that the Drug Task Force could use federal money to pay for the Mitchell Police car. 2. Phelix must have lied, or been terribly confused when he made that statement. 3. A check with the Drug Task Force could prove this lie.
