On Fire Official Admits to Stealing Union Funds

Never said he was loved. He is certainly the most qualified. The DSA will come out with an endorsement recommendation in the first week of May.

JohnLocke,
Do you believe that an unexperienced sergeant will be able to curtail the actions of people which create the situations of officer involved shootings? If you have some thoughts on how to prevent these situations, I am certain that all of us, including the sheriffs and chiefs would like to hear them. I'm sincere in that comment.

Bill Brown, when first elected, had 29 years of law enforcement experience, had been a police chief for two cities, president of the California Police Chief's Association, graduated from the Delinquency Control Institute and the FBI National Academy. He also had achieved a bachelor's degree in management as well as a master's degree in public administration from USC.

Sergeant Brown said basically that she has taken some classes in college, but she doesn't state what. She has never attempted to advance to the rank of lieutenant, which is a middle manager in our profession. She has not taken the time and effort to prepare herself for the position of CEO of an organization of over 600 people with a $125 million dollar annual budget.

I don't know your background, but I suspect that experience counted when it came time to advance.

Sandra Brown says she "attended" community colleges and USC. I'd be interested on the details, like what classes or programs, or how many hours.

I told you Priceless, go to your anger management classes - it will help you immensely.

Not excusing it Priceless. Just sad when good people go bad, no matter who they are. Have you gone to your anger management class today?

So sad. Bob was a respected firefighter and made many advances in his profession, including being the first "SWAT medic". I hope all comes around in time.

Priceless,
You are only talking to those who choose to talk to you. I have said consistently that not all SBSO personnel like Sheriff Brown. But many do. That's been the case with every Sheriff. I have personally known all of them since 1972. None of them have been perfect. The DSA hasn't endorsed the challenger either. This is not an absolute issue. Trust me, I have a lot more experience in this than you do. The election will settle this discussion. I am betting Sheriff Brown will still he the Sheriff on June 4th. And, IN MY OPINION, he should be. The voters will decide regardless of what you or I opine. And that's the way it should be.

Priceless,
But you never were one of us - I was for over 30 years - nuff said.

Wasn't there - don't think you were either. I'm fairly certain I personally know more of the troops than you. I've worked with many of them and still stay in touch. Are some of them against the current Sheriff? You bet. Are all of them against the current Sheriff? Nope. The Supervisors do not need to approve roadblocks. PS, I was a detective for a few years, but worked undercover. Take care my wannabe friend.
