Trooper barred from working for Roethlisberger appeals ruling

You would think that Pennsylvania state trooper Edward J. Joyner would have had enough of Ben Roethlisberger after his recent trip to Milledgeville with him.

But Joyner is a friend and an employee of Big Ben, and he wants that to continue.  Joyner has appealed a decision barring him from working with Roethlisberger any longer under provisions of the contract with the
Pennsylvania State Troopers Association, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Joyner’s bosses had previously approved the extra work, but rescinded that approval in April for demeaning “the image of the department.”

I’m not a legal expert, but it is surprising that Joyner’s desire for extra income outweighs any preference to make his police bosses happy and stay out of the news.  Maybe Roethlisberger pays better.

    Maybe it’s Roethlisberger’s (very) sloppy seconds!

  2. Maybe Big Ben’s got Super Xray. Kill the ads.
    If I were a journalist, which is an even scarier prospect than Florio being one, I’d be trying to interview Cowher about this. I’d stick out my jaw, spit when I talked, whatever it took.

  3. How would a deal like that work? Would he get a per diem when he has to go out and cover up Ben’s crimes, would he get a flat rate per crime covered up? Would it be a sliding scale based on the severity of the crime or does he get some kind of a rate based on how many (soon to be) rape victims he drags into bathrooms?

  4. Or maybe he is just as big of a D as Roethlisberger. Maybe Ben thinks Joyner is one of the best at what he does.
    On another unrelated note, is their a class you can take to plan organize rapes?

    What the F does he care, he is in a union, they won’t fire him anyway. Well, unless he does something REALLY REALLY bad.
    Besides you can do your job and still get in the news (See Cambridge Ma) then have the president call your actions stupid without actually attempting to see what really happened.

  6. Not Suprised…. Just another one, among many, half-wit imbred’s from Pittsburg.

  7. That’s because he was there, in GA that night, and he knows that Ben didn’t rape that chick. So yea, why not make good money protecting his friend, who isn’t a rapist. Seems pretty simple to me…

  8. Big-Ben you are done… hopefully one of the team will break your two lil legs in up coming season. No jail time ? What ?His best of friend is one of the state trooper. WTF. This guy need to get his face smash one more time with a car this time.

    Maybe if Ray and Donte had a bodyguard they wouldn’t be knowed KILLERS ans some of their up and comming teammate need one

  10. As a PA resident, I’m fine with with him working for Ben….BUT I want him in front of a Grand jury telling his story! I want a hand on the good book telling the truth cause he’s been far from forth coming.

  12. “the image of the department”
    ——————————————–
    Ha Ha Ha……..The Pennsylvania State Police is one of the most corrupt organizations in the country.

  13. @K-DIZZLE,
    Keep smoking the crack and living in a fantasy world.
    As to the trooper, if Ben pays that well then maybe he should quit the police force, which he obviously is not well qualified to be a member of, and become a full time member of Ben’s posse.

  14. Or … maybe Joyner knows he did nothing to tarnish his shield and resents being tagged with the label of having demeaned the image of his department.
    Barravecchio was the one accused of guarding the bathroom door and other witnesses disputed the accusation. These officers were performing as designated drivers and security, not babysitters. They’re not responsible for Roethlisberger’s personal behavior. The DA said they were sober and doing their jobs.

  15. Image of the department? I guess a police officer acting as a shield and look out during the commission of a felony crime is not the sort perception that they wish to promote.
    How about firing the clown? Wouldn’t that send a stronger message?

  16. Its my guess that Trooper Joyner has enough time in with the force to retire; thus, he is working for the half of his pay he wouldn’t get if he retired. His association with Ben indicates he probably has no ambition to rise in the ranks, and if my guess re his seniority is true, he has no real need to concern himself with how his bosses feel about him filing the request to continue the outside work. In a union shop like that, filing appeals are part of the process.
    Plus, he probably realizes that they probably couldn’t be much more pissed off at him than they already are anyway.

    He should have been fired from the Pa State Police.

    why, because you say so! Get a life…nothing happened and he knows it since he was there that night and YOU were not…no reason why he can’t keep his part-time gig with Big Ben!
    And BTW if my wife, daughter, sister, etc ever accused anybody of rape I’d make damn sure that they took it all the way through the legal system….chicks like McNutty and this GA young lady only make it more difficult for real rape victims to be believed and taken seriously….I swear they should charge her for filing a false police report….”were you raped”….ah Ghee “I do not think so”….”A boy kind of raped me”….whatever!
    GO STEELERS and GO BIG BEN!

  19. None of you were there that night but Joyner was so how come you all know more about what happened than he does….oh yea that’s right because you all are a bunch of cry baby haters!
    Open your hearts people and let the Steeler love in….there’s a reason why we are Steeler Nation. There’s a reason why we have the biggest fan base…..GO STEELERS!
    No crack pipe needed!

  20. I sure hope Stupid Ben is not going anywhere near the people he was with before. Who does he think he is that he needs bodyguards.Stop acting like an a– and no one will come after you. Keep shorty in your pants.

    So I smoke crack, because I have actually read the report from that night? I thought that’s what you are supposed to do before you comment on a story. Read the facts first. You want to show me some facts that support her claim of rape?

  22. BTW, @RAVNATION, what’s an “imbred”? Speaking of half wit, learn how to spell then you can come back and converse with the adults. Then again, you’re a B’more fan, so you’re used to being halfway retarded.

  26. Deb,
    It was in a previous article that troopers are not “allowed” by contract to moonlight as body guards in PA. Uh oh… I guess troopers can’t read.

  27. Joyner has appealed a decision barring him from working with Roethlisberger any longer under provisions of the contract with the Pennsylvania State Troopers Association
    Funny, but here in the Lone Star State, the Texas State Troopers Association are fundraisers with a not-so-good reputation (they’ve been investigated several times for fraudulent practices). They have nothing to do with the real state troopers here.

    Yeah, you also probably also believed that Palin was qualified in foreign affairs because she could see Russia from her house.

  30. What’s the surprise? When it comes to sleaze and corruption cops are second only to Catholic priests.

  31. maybe he and ben are lovers and ben has girl issues b/c he’s frustrated keeping his true self from the rest of the world…. just a thought.

  32. Let the man uphold the tradition and the legacy that is the Pa. State troopers….
    ————————————–
    Samuel Derugen Jr. Troop G, Rockview…Accused of defecating on another trooper at a party, and then of sticking a carrot in his butt and then eating it. His defense was he passed gas on the trooper but did not defecate, and then shot the carrot out of his butt but did not eat it….
    —————————————-
    No, this isn’t a made up, but a true story on public record,and there are PLENTY of others… the Pa. state police is one of the most vile,disgusting, corrupt organizations in the country, it’s no wonder this degenerate hired him, and no wonder he wants to continue his employment…..

  33. I bet when him and his buddies are out on the town with Ben, they call themselves “Team RamRod”.

  34. Man I love the Steelers and I hate politics but K-dizzle that thing you said about obama making the country communist and calling him a dictator was possibly the dumbest statement I have ever seen on here. I mean to even begin to call obama a dictator ,after our previous President literally took more anti-Constitutional steps than the any two others combined, is ridiculous. Not that I am happy about anything Obama is doing, it’s just if you are going to insult him, insult him right.

  35. K-DIZZLE, there’s one way you guys could get rid of that nasty “Dictator” for good: stop losing national elections. Try it next time.

    So true.

  37. Joyner was ORIGINALLY hired as an assistant to anwser Toothlessburger’s fan mail. By accompany Ben as a bodyguard (as the two witnesses attest to, i.e blocking the bathroom door) he broke the agreement he had with the Pa.State Police thus he gave them reason to terminate his parttime job. Also fairly certain that the agreement would provide for termination without cause as most organizations do (Military etc)
    “Sides…don’t think he’s anwsering much fan mail to Toothlessburger nowadays as he’s not getting any.

  38. Igottz5onit , sorry, but you are in the minority if you think that Obama is not a Communist. I sure as hell am not the first person to say it. I’d rather not talk politics, it does nothing but anger people. I only brought it up because of the jab that overkil2 took at Palin.

  39. How is a prosecutor supposed to secure a conviction in any case where the defense can reveal that the law enforcement officer involved is a bodyguard for a rapist?

  40. Sides…don’t think he’s anwsering much fan mail to Toothlessburger nowadays as he’s not getting any.
    I’m quite sure Deb is picking up the slack in that particular arena. (And if you think it’s easy writing on a pair of crotchless panties in longhand …)

  41. Or … maybe Joyner knows he did nothing to tarnish his shield and resents being tagged with the label of having demeaned the image of his department.

    Riiiiiiiiggggggggt! And I’ve got some fantastic ocean front property for sale in Nebraska.

  42. @CrazyWolfe …
    If you’d listened to the DA’s press conference, you’d know Bright said Joyner and Barravecchio were performing more as designated drivers than anything else and that they were the only people on either side who were sober and coherent that night.
    If you’re as sloppy at conducting business as you are at taking the time to study the facts before you post, no wonder you think you’ve purchased ocean-front property in Nebraska. You should probably give your power of attorney to someone more responsible.

    Who gives a shit about any Stealer facts, other than who’s getting suspended, cut or put in jail. PigBen will be booed in every stadium he plays in this year, including their own.
