How do you know a cop is lying? His lips are moving.

On OmniLinks side is that everything, everything done on a computerized system is logged.
As long as there are no gaps they have all the proof of statement needed.
The sheriff? Uh gee, uh no, nobody said nutin to us.

It's code for "attractive and successful."

Wouldn't have read the same if it said "Teen innocent".

i think committing two armed robberies while wearing a tracking anklet is reasonable cause for a "thug" label.

Because "teen" alone wasn't prejudicial enough? Or because "teen criminal" wasn't catchy enough?

true that. "14 yr old recidivist scumbag" would have been much more catchy.

Here's my solution: Break his arms.

It's much harder to commit armed robbery in the future if you have two broken arms.

Can you still be convicted of armed robbery if you have no arms?

So which cop is he related to?
 
2012-10-07 02:11:22 AM
Um, did anyone else read past the headline? Because subby quite obviously didn't.

It was a written report from Omnilink that said the device had a status of "No Communication." And Omnilink admits that the device was already a replacement for a previous failed one, and the current one needed to be checked for proper operation.

You're assuming that the tracking company actually called; actually got connected and actually talked to someone.

If you think they can't fake connection data; I have a bridge to sell you.

/ I'm not saying that they didn't; just saying that it wouldn't the first time a monitering company screwed up and tried to cover it up

No, the sheriff's office could have been slacking let it go to voicemail or something. But you do seem to be forgetting that if they did call the sheriff then those phone calls could be independently verified with the phone company.

Doesn't seem weird to me. Why, did you misread it and think it said the chairwoman is also the OmniLink rep?

This is a fourteen year old with priors committing armed robbery while wearing a bracelet that as far as he knows tracks his movements. "Thug" is about the nicest thing you could call him.

Hell, he would likely take it as a compliment.

The thing stops communicating and just coincidentally he's suddenly out robbing people? Whatever is going wrong with the devices, I'm betting it had help from this POS. I hope they toss his butt into juvie after this, he's clearly not a candidate for home detention.

He was probably stealing to pay for the tracking bracelet. I had one for a year when I was 18, it cost about $5500 for the year. The screwed up part is they just don't let you take it off until you have your fees all paid. $5500 may not seem like a lot, especially over a year, but when you can't find a job because you're on house arrest, it really sucks.

Everyone is up in arms over the private prisons, you see very little on how community corrections, probation, drug courts, etc. are a cash machine for the county and the companies that "service" the offenders.

FTA: The "Offender Monitoring System Report" for the sheriff's office by Daniel Graff-Radford, Omnilink Systems' vice president and general manager, states that the monitoring center got an alert of "No Communication" shortly after 11 p.m. Monday and called the sheriff's office to notify them, which seems to contradict the sheriff's claim that his office didn't realize that the data was old.

In all fairness, maybe the sheriff doesn't know how the technology operates.

The technology is simple, a person wears a anklet that sends out a signal every few minutes. A box, plugged into a phone collects the data and calls the monitoring service at regular intervals. If the anklet move so far away from the box it fails to communicate and the monitoring service is notified. (The "no communication" report suggests that this is not the more detailed GPS style system.)

So, maybe the sheriff is not lying, maybe he just doesn't understand that a report of "no communication" suggests that the anklet has moved beyond the broadcast range, and not old data before the devices was properly hooked up. A sheriff is basically a political/administrative position so an older Sheriff may not understand how seemly basic things work. (Think John McCain and email.)

Side note: I have had clients do a lot of interesting things with their box, in an attempt to keep it reporting when violating house arrest rules.

1. One of my clients purchased a 100 foot extension phone line, so he could move the box out the back door and up next to their neighbor's fence, so he could swim in the neighbor's pool. The plan would have worked except for the random check of the house arrest officer.

2. One of my clients learned how long the interval was between call in reports and calculated that she could unplug the box, quickly make her way to the location of a party, and hook the box up at the party location to continue reporting before the box was set to call in again. The problem was the driver was pulled over for speeding which messed up the travel time. Additionally, because no one in the car had a license the car was towed, with the monitoring box in the car.

Hey, that's not true at all. Sometimes they lie in writing, on official forms and witness statements and such.
