  1. Command staff steal from us the people at Sheriff Dept. They get 6 felonies reduced to mistemeaners.

    This should have happen to anyone who authorize stealing of Rico funds. Classic example of double standard that exists.

    Is there any wonder why public mistrust legal system. Justice is just a word if you wear uniform or are in the right good ole boys club.
