I received a lot of text messages and facebook messages about the LEMU endorsement caper. Several were also railing on Sgt. Kaiser as someone equally as suspect as Sgt Brause. It is alleged by confidential informants that Sgt. Kaiser made a deal with the Sniffmeister for his third bar. (A term used in Military and Law Enforcement to refer to a Sgt. (LEMU = Law Enforcement Management Unit, the Sgt, Lt and Captains)
The embedded meme was sent to me by someone that does not like Brause very much. It has a triple meaning and refers to Brause’ letter quoting the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics which has become a sad sidebar in the Sniff administration.
If allegations against Brause and Kaiser are true – here is a clear nexus for Brause (who left a comment to make sure I spelled his name right) and Kaiser to do what they did with regard to stuffing the LEMU endorsement of Chad Bianco. Again, are these two men in line for a promotion? What were they promised?
You will also note when Brause wrote his tail-covering letter he made note of the fact that LEMU does not have a Political Action Committee as a veiled swipe to the Riverside Sheriff’s Association. That is also felony stupid engaging in open warfare with fellow cops, however it is indicitive of the culture of Stan Sniff, fostering division in order to more easily control the department.
An old-timer emailed me a history lesson:
1. LEMU actually endorsed Sniff in 2007 at the BOS meeting. Then-president Louis Fetherholf announced it at the meeting to the board.2. He was then promoted to chief deputy about 6 months later3. Despite the fact that as the captain at Lake Elsinore and chief of police for the city, he mismanaged the contract and lost over $1 million (the Press Enterprise said it was $750k but we know it was a million because the city cut 10 positions including 5 RSO positions to cover the loss)4. Fetherholf, as COP for Lake Elsinore, charged the city when his band played an event there5. After promoting to deputy chief, he left RSO after a year for a COP position in northern California when he found out he had to do his own work and he wasn’t allowed to bring his “adjutant” with him6. It was widely rumored that LEMU membership had actually endorsed Neil Lingle, but Fetherholf announced Sniff since he was a Stan supporter and no one ever saw the actual votes
Well, well, well…I was wondering when old Timmy would be featured here. Timmy, like most zealots, speaks words that describe him as a walk the straight and narrow dude, never do wrong, tomato you feel comfortable leaving Timmy alone with your barely legal daughter because he’s a self proclaimed righteous dude.Oh how wrong you would be. Timmy is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. A snake who would trample on your back to get ahead. A man would would undress your barely legal daughter with his creepy stare.Tim, why don’t you talk about how you tried to undermine an investigator to get to the Hostage Negotiator Team? Why isn’t your experience of dipping your pen in the (various) cadet’s ink well mentioned when you write how you will keep your personal life “unsullied.” What did your poor wife say when she learned you were cheating on her with younglings?Shouse is correct, LEMU is weak and cannot commit to endorsing a new sheriff’s candidate because they are all scared. They cannot sound off like they have a pair because Admin has nurtured you all. AND many are not fifty and eligible for retirement (but Timmy, you were certainly thirty and flirty again at the academy, eh?) so they are concerned for their careers.This is why the rank and file cannot stand their supervisors. Their lack of commitment, needing to be told what to do or say by Sniffcompoop’s marionettes, and cowering under their desks in a fetal position when the shit hits the fan is all the more reason WE NEED A NEW SHERIFF!!Brause, why don’t you talk about your leadership skills (none) or why you were sent to the Perris Station (because you were screwing cadets at the academy) or why no one really respects you (because you are not a true leader and walk with a bent back).Pecker Ray Wood, you going to ask Timmy to get on board your silly lawsuit against ROD? Remember the First Amendment. Brause has.
If you have not gotten a flavor for what I get sent on a daily basis, there is a full-blown insurrection within the Riverside Sheriff’s Office.
Someone who is clearly a LEMU member left this:
Let me get this straight….everyone who voted was excited to cast their votes, Tim counted them alone. He wouldn’t allow anyone else to be there and then he comes up with “the majority wants to stay neutral”. Tim is a liar. Period. That’s your reputation, and now everyone knows your ugly skeletons including your wife. How did that work out for you Timmy?? You are holding the endorsement “the majority” voted on and in favor of Bianco for a chance at a promotion you don’t deserve. You ran unopposed too, that’s on us.
Ouch. This is a sad shrinking world for Team Sniff.
