one rule for them, another rule for everyone else.

A conference room table at the Law Enforcement Complex in Chester is stacked with hundreds of arrest warrants that have either been unserved or not entered into a database that tells deputies a subject has an warrant for their arrest.

Some of those people have probably had the warrant cleared -- they made it to court without being arrested on a warrant -- but it will be reactivated and they'll get arrested.

Every so often police and court clerks will go through a 20 year old file cabinet and enter the contents into the computer. And you'll have your license revoked for a 20 year old ticket that you may or may not have paid, but the computer says you didn't.

Can you imagine the sh*t Sheriff Joe's successor will find? I really don't want to know how much it'll cost us tax payers when that happens.

I could believe friends and family or bribes.

The most favorable interpretation is, Deputy Billy Bob's cousin keeps getting pulled over for speeding and forgetting his court date. Arrest warrant lands on BB's desk, he calls his cousin and says "go to court on your own tomorrow morning and I won't have you arrested."

Or he recognizes his cousin's name and doesn't call and doesn't process the warrant and his cousin is now a 50 times wanted man.

I am also willing to believe bribes. But there are less corrupt explanations. In my scale of corruption, bribes > letting family stay on the run > letting family turn themselves in without handcuffs.

I can imagine. I can also imagine Sheriff Joe has a better paper shredder. I don't understand why these warrants were filed instead of lost.

Oh I think he'll just burn all the evidence...unless he dies in a sudden massive heart attack or something and doesn't get the chance.

Why would they save all the old warrants? If they had no intention of arresting those people, why not just shred them?

You don't want to shred them if you want to keep someone in your pocket, so to speak.

OnlyM3: It's almost like all those people saying cops are criminals might be on to something


They aren't "criminals", they just selectively enforce the laws and statues that they personally judge to be worthwhile, circumventing the entire legal system. You know, like most cops/judges/magistrates/mayors/principals/HOAs/Deans/CEOs/anyone with any authority.

Had a problem IRL with this once. We had an employee steal about $250K and run for it to a neighboring state, where the county Sheriff was his wife's uncle.

Sheriff refused to arrest. We got a mandamus writ, asked the sheriff if he'd like to go to jail in his place. Sheriff calls ex-employee, tells him to flee, HP waiting down the street unbeknownst to Sheriff. Employee nabbed, cell records show call from Sheriff's cell to ex-employee's cell minutes prior to flight to avoid prosecution. A fun time was had by all in court.

You know how villains in movies sometimes have their heart hooked up to a trigger so that if they die an orphanage or hospital or something blows up? I want one of those hooked up to a hard drive.

Underwood says he's fired employees who worked for the previous administration and believes he's gotten to the root of the problem.

Sounds like a patronage position. Soon, there will be new warrants hidden away. For other people and their friends.

As someone who is generally one of the most vocal people defending cops in general, fark this man.

He has no right to have a badge after doing this.

You swore to uphold the law, you asshole. Even if they're your friends. You should rot under the jail for tarnishing your office and badge.

yeah he would have. stop a car load of 17 year olds? confiscate their beer and send them home. dump out their weed and tell them you don't want to catch 'em with it again or he'll tell their folks.

At this point the only way there's going to be a successor to Sheriff Joe is if he dies. And it will probably be whomever is next in rank that will fill in until an election is held.
