A confidential source known to me, but requesting anonymity apparently got upset enough to come forward with specific info about Sgt Frank Schiavone and Andrew Shouse. I then followed up with others as several had information related to the subjects in this post…
You see, Andrew Shouse was notorious for drinking on duty. He was a regular parton of a local bar near the Thermal Station and could be seen as early as 2-3pm (1400-1500 for you cops and marines out there) lit up like a Christmas Tree.
Sgt. Schiavone is reputed to have been one of Captain Shouse’s drinking buddies.
Sgt. Frank Schiavone was involved in a hit and run accident in the City of Indio. He and others fled the scene.
Shouse got the whole thing covered up to make sure his drinking buddy did not get popped for a DUI or fleeing the scene
Andrew Shouse had a lot of tryists with a lot of people. I’ve been told at least two stories of Shouse taking other men’s girlfriends by force and having sex with them. I’ve also been told by several people that Andrew Shouse had sex with almost all of the female employees under his watch.
Some of you may recall my posts about Deputy Birchard. She got screwed over by Lt. Bostrom who had her arrested for being allegedly under the influence at the training command. Bostrom wanted to take her down because she had Shouse’s kid, or something along those lines. I can’t keep track of all of their scores, it is like a playboy novel.
After the stench around Andrew Shouse got so bad, he was sent to the Robert Pressley Detention Center where he promptly started screwing his way through the female staff there and then he got fired. Shouse is now attempting to get his job back.
Frank Schiavone? Well, he has some baggage of his own… first off is a well-known affair with Now Captain Misty Reynolds (who is ironically rumored to be taking over the Thermal Station once Roy Disgrace retires). Maybe she can get the equipment fixed at that disaster of a station (in between affairs). Schiavone and Reynolds were engaged in a different form of surveillance while a suspect was doing what suspects do. Upon leaving the location he was burglarizing, he happened upon the van that apparently was undulating and helped himself to now Captain Reynolds’ purse.
Allegedly Schiavone was also stalking a now ex-wife pre and post divorce. He still has his job. Where was that investigation? Probably in the same place as the investigations of Sgt Dekker, Lt Rose, Lt Kent, etc etc etc.
Some people may not understand why we take the time to write about this stuff here at RightonDaily. Let me spell it out for you. This is the kind of behavior that is allowed to go on in Stan Sniff’s Riverside Sheriff’s Department. Andrew Shouse should have been fired years ago, yet the rank and file know they are as likely to get screwed by County Admin as the perpetrator is, therefore Shouse can brandish a weapon and take someone’s girlfriend by force while wasted (as one example of what I was told by informants). The rank and file also know that Friends of Stan are off-limits. It appears that Shouse was one up until some point before he was terminated.
Honest Cops have been putting up with this kind of behavior from co-workers for years under Stan Sniff. It needs to stop. There needs to be a house-cleaning where dirty cops are terminated and prosecuted. Right now, the regime of terror reigns supreme where honest people are intimidated in to silence and no one likes their job.
Stan Sniff is the boss, and he owns the corruption of the department. When I speak to Confidential Informants, one after the other, they tell me they had such high hopes for Stan Sniff only to have him end up being the same or worse than his predecessor Bob Doyle. (Note – Doyle has endorsed Hemet Dave)
Stay Tuned, we are naming more names soon.
