To those of you reading the blog regularly, you are familiar with the investigator exam cheating scandal. If not, read the gory details here, and some more gory details here.

If you are new to the blog, you may not remember that the Captain’s test was compromised in 2016 when Loren Tyler Clark attempted to hose a fellow Lieutenant to improve his own chances of making rank. Click here to see the letter and details of the Captain’s test being invalidated in 2016 and then re-done.

Also – Assistant Sheriff Kevin Vest is alleged to have given the answers to the Lieutenant’s test to Aaron Kent and as well, retired Chief Deputy Kennedy Smith is alleged to have given the Lt’s exam questions to Danny Young.

And now – Academy Advisory Meeting Minutes 040412:

Sgt. Edward Chavez – Class 186 Cheating Incident

 

  • Chavez de-briefed the group about the recent cheating incident involved Class 186.
  • At the end of the de-brief, comments were made by the following members:
  • RPD Lt. Bruce Loftus – convinced Class 186 recruits cheated and commended RSO for the actions taken.
  • Imperial County Sheriff Chief Deputy Steve Gutierrez – asked if a waiver could be drawn up stating if a recruit was caught cheating, they could not re-enter program?
  • MVC Director Dave Kroh – responded to the question and discussed the difference between college stance vs. POST (Title V vs. Title 11)
  • MVC Dr. Cordell Briggs – added to Mr. Kroh’s explanation
  • RSO Lt. Terry Wood – further discussed POST mandated Test Security Agreement and need for it to be done by September/2012. If not, Academy would be suspended.
  • Lyle Schroeder – commented on the cost involved to POST on the reconstruction of one compromised test and POST seeking legislation to make this act a misdemeanor crime.
  • RSO Chief Deputy Rick Hall – kudos to all staff involved in the handling of this incident.

The entire class was terminated. However, several came back in later classes according to accounts I was told. Now, we have trainees cheating in 2012 and several instances of Cheating at all levels of the department on advancement exams. Is it any wonder morale is a shambles and Sheriff Sniff is launching in to tirades in his office? Like a light on a cockroach, Sniff and his leadership team are being exposed for what they have done.

Alfredo Ortega is a convicted Felon.

Alfredo is a past owner of El Tarasco Restaurant in Perris. El Tarasco Restaurant was the scene of a recent event for Stan Sniff. Alfredo is a public booster of the Sheriff. Alfredo transferred the ownership of the restaurant to his wife in the mid 2000’s and in 2008 the liquor license (which Alfredo could not renew due to his felony conviction) was renewed by his daughter, who is the current owner.

Alfredo Ortega according to inside sources with training and knowledge of the meaning of the code, was convicted of a felony DUI in 1997. In addition, he was picked up for Felony Drug Possession in 1997, but inexplicably that case was dropped.

Sniff has a convicted felon donor. He has an endorser sporting a prostitution conviction. Sniff has a string of people no law enforcement official would be proud of promoting, yet there they are.

The early May Event at El Tarasco was being bantered about by people on Facebook as an opportunity to “get” Chad Bianco. However, before the event happened, it was discovered that the business license was suspended and Bianco backed out of the event.

Mr. Ortega for his part is also sporting THREE, domestic violence restraining orders in his past. In the sad, shrinking world of Stan Sniff, the bench is getting a little thin in the support network.

It is alleged, but I can’t see the proof that the dismissal of the felony drug possession may well be due to Ortega becoming an informant. As I lack the training to make that determination, I am relying on the opinions of insiders that have looked at this stuff.

The one felony conviction is undeniable.

The three domestic violence restraining orders are linked here.

DV Order 1

DV Order 2

DV Order 3

Great job Stanley!

P.S. Please note that Alfredo Ortega still owns the building that the Restaurant is in, in his own name.

In our ongoing attempts to inform the public about the #CULTOFTRAVIS, we continue with our Screenshots expose’. Travis Allen is almost 100% dependent upon social media to win election, therefore the acting out matters far more than it otherwise would.

Some of these appear to have threats directed at President Trump.

Note the “organic” nature of the insanity. To be continued…

Just how deep is the cronyism in the Riverside Sheriff’s Office?

Once known as the most coveted team in the department with the highest standards, now apparently welcomes anyone who puts on the uniform, that is as long as you’re amongst the Sniff favorites. RSO’s SWAT team was operating for decades without a single K-9 on the team and after coming to his senses, Sniff decided to add four of his experienced K-9 deputies to his SWAT team. This was under one stipulation, those four K-9 deputies, MUST pass all the same SWAT standards and qualifications as every other SWAT member. But that didn’t happen.
Anyone who has ever worked with Jurupa Valley K-9 Handler, Heath Noyes, will tell you that he rides the leg of anyone wearing brass. His butt-kissing ability is his best talent and he’s obviously a pro at it. Often bragging about how he refers to Chief Deputies and “Stan” on a first name basis and calls their personal cell phones at any time. It was no surprise when Deputy Noyes was informed that he was one of the four K-9 deputies chosen to be a SWAT K-9.
Deputy Noyes was also informed that he would have to attend the bi-annual SWAT tryouts with the other deputies aspiring to be on the SWAT team. However, Deputy Noyes already had his spot on the team reserved, all he had to do was pass the minimum shooting and physical fitness qualifications. Similar to many of Stan Sniff’s cronies, Noyes was not up to the task.
Not only did Deputy Noyes fail the physical fitness qualification, he fell out during the run and left the training center in an ambulance. Yes, that’s right. Deputy Noyes had well over 6 months to prepare for this physical fitness qualification; however, he spent those 6 months sitting on his ass eating bon-bons watching movies. The SWAT Team qualification is not as extreme as it sounds based on the performance (or lack of) by Deputy Noyes. What caused Noyes to end up in a meat wagon? He #EPICFAILED in an attempt to complete a mere 1.5 mile run in 12 minutes. 
When Deputy Noyes failed the qualification it was not a major deal as every SWAT tryout has deputies that do not pass. Those deputies are welcome to attend future tryouts. What is a big deal is that Deputy Noyes was still permitted to attend the SWAT academy and graduate WITHOUT passing the physical fitness test. 
Our sources inside RSO SWAT insist that this is the first time in the history of the RSO SWAT team that a deputy has attended (let alone graduated) the SWAT academy without passing the physical fitness qualification. Furthermore, this was so shocking to the SWAT team that the SWAT commander, Captain Feltenberger, addressed his team as group stating that he was ordered by Chief Deputy Lyndon Raymond “The Executioner” Wood to allow Deputy Noyes to attend the SWAT academy regardless of his embarrassing tryout! 
And you wonder why morale is in the tank?
With morale at an all time low department-wide , Sniff smears the faces of every deputy who’s ever been in the SWAT team. This also opens the door to RSA grievances (and employment practices lawsuits) for deputies who not only passed the tryout (as not all deputies who pass are welcomed to attend the academy) but also to deputies that did not pass the SWAT tryout.
Perhaps this is why someone came forward to your intrepid blogger. Can you blame these other deputies who were turned away even after passing everything, yet a Sniff favorite gets to attend after he failed the minimum qualifications?
This sounds like a prime example of making the county civilly liable (on many different levels) for nothing more than Stan Sniff favoritism.
Bonus – Noyes is fond of bragging that everyone on the SWAT and K-9 Team that is not a Stan Sniff Boot-Licker is going to lose their assignment if Sniff is re-elected. (speaking of things you will never see in the Press-Enterprise or the Desert Sun) Add it to the list. AND – he was featured in the now infamous “James Bond” video that Stan Sniff had made at an unknown cost to the taxpayers.

P.S. I have been told by sources that Sniff has had Admin Block RightonDaily.com from department computers through an internet block protocol. Looks like people are using their phones because the traffic continues to shatter records.
