Man have the floodgates come open since we posted this in early February 2018.
Check out this comment left on another post a couple of days ago:
Rumor is that Purvis played a major role in the cheating scandal to cover it up. Insiders claim that investigators did the interviews of all the involved players and those interviews were turned over to the second floor where “group think” actually wrote it. They even omitted some of the players. The investigator who has their name attached to it wrote nothing. That is apparently common practice in the Mark Bostrom era, where digital copies of reports are routinely changed after they are turned in to meet the needs of an unethical administration.
Lt. “Investigate to Terminate” Mark Bostrom appears to be almost universally loathed within the Riverside Sheriff’s Office. He appears to have cost the County of Riverside some serious money.
Witness this anonymous email I received:
So here is another “investigate to terminate” story with some documentation. Gabe Dennington was fired from RSO something like 5 years ago. The word is that during depositions the “investigate to terminate” came out and his settlement offer from the county went from $250,000 to $2.2 million. This is supposedly the reason Bostrom was moved to the academy. Word is that Dennington told the county to go f*** themselves and is seeking damages and his job back. Attached is a photo I received showing his case is over.This is a regular thing, people get fired and get their jobs back. The department knows what it’s doing and knows how bad it punishes people.Its funny how certain ranks in the department are untouchable. Capt. Dave Nordstrom was investigated for handcuffing his step daughter to her bed at night (his current wife is a CSO and it was her adopted daughter). The investigators working the case were slowed in their efforts and they are almost certain Nordstrom was given the heads up before they did the search warrant at his house. He got a misdemeanor filing and it was dragged on for years before getting nothing. People are freaking out about the Turpin child abuse case in Perris and we had one within our own department. Nothing internally happened to him and he is still employed with us today!
