Update: Something Had to Give: Village Idiot Janine England Fired by Village Idiot Perry Trustees

Our Village Idiot was hardly off the press when word came down that Janine England has been fired by the Perry Township trustees. According to the Rep, Perry trustees refused to accept her resignation turned in shortly before their meeting today, and booted her instead. Deputy England's letter of resignation read in part:

It is with great regret that I announce my resignation effective today the 7th of July 2009. Even though my work history with the police department was exemplary, due to the recent media attention to this matter I firmly believe this would be in the best interest of the Perry Police Department. I sincerely hope this matter can be put to rest from now on and all parties can move forward.


England started working for the Perry police on April 13 and commenced her relationship with Escola on May 18 which lasted "officially" until June 25 the day they were clandestinely popped. Dates apparently determined by emails confiscated by the trustees. Who knows what they're doing now. I Hate Canton did not run into them on our summer expedition into the wilds of Ohio, but that doesn't mean that they weren't nesting in some comfy car wash or a cozy cove near Sippo Lake.

We sympathize with England and Escola. As Frank Sinatra sang Somethin's Gotta Give (and he should know!). What were they to do? Go home to their respective spouses?

When an irresistible force such as you
Meets an old immovable object like me
You can bet just as sure as you live
Somethin's gotta give
Somethin's gotta give
Somethin's gotta give

England's firing does not invalidate anyone's recent award. Village Idiots all!

Fox 8 deserved the title of Village Idiot as well for reporting wrong information on their website.
"According to England's attorney, Charles Hall, her resignation was faxed to the Perry Township Trustees just after 5 p.m. Ironically, a "special" meeting was to take place at 6 p.m. today, to discuss the officer's future with the police department.

In a closed-door meeting, the trustees reviewed the fax, then voted to "accept" England's resignation."

Officer England was hired April 13th and by the end of the month she was doing undercover work at the Elite Skills Game arcade. On May 1st at the actual raid she attempted to question the workers even though Chief Escola, Deputy Rick Perez and folks from the Ohio Attorney General's office were present! Two weeks on the job and this girl acted like she was in charge. I suspect the canoodling may have started before her job interview for the post. At least she now knows what it feels like to be on the receiving end of surveillance.
