As you can imagine the rank and file in the Sheriff’s Department are elated.
Pictured is Chief Deputy Jason “Deuce” Horton – he has said to some that he is going to run for Sheriff in 4 years against Sheriff-Elect Chad Bianco. Then, later, he was attempting to brown nose to keep a job. Horton is 48 and needs another 15 months or so for a full retirement. #EPICFAIL He better hope the file about the DUI he allegedly got away with was destroyed by his pals in Sheriff’s Admin. (If it is untrue, then he has a lot of issues to worry about anyway)
Lyndon Raymond “The Executioner” Wood – another Chief Deputy is suddenly ill. Something about heart issues, no one I spoke to knew anything about Wood having health issues as just two weeks ago he was threatening people in their offices. Rumors are just that, rumors. One set has him putting in his retirement papers and another set has him attempting to medically tap out.
Update: It appears that Chief Deputy Ray Wood did indeed end up in the ER on Wed with some sort of legitimate heart issue. All my opinions of him aside, I hope he is OK physically. Never, EVER root for people you don’t like or political enemies to suffer ill, otherwise you’re no better than the ill you attempt to defeat at the ballot box. Good luck Ray and recover fully.
Another insane rumor that turns out to be partially true is an alleged Stan Sniff temper tantrum, no, not the infamous video folks, a real tantrum. It appears he had to be talked out of shutting down the CCW Department as his refusal to have reasonable CCW issuance practices was a major campaign issue. (And exposed the hypocrisy of the NRA and H Paul Payne) Somehow, shutting the CCW department down was supposed to accomplish something.
That’s correct, a sitting Sheriff had a serious enough conversation that even his butt monkies (ohhh there is that word again) had to talk him out of yet another felony stupid move.
In other news – Sheriff-Elect Chad Bianco has made it clear that the Kevin Duffy Serial Child Molestation Case will be followed up on and finished the right way.
Your intrepid blogger has received multiple reports of Shred Trucks parked at or near the Sheriff’s Admin Office. I am not 100% sure what that means, but I have written many times I am of the opinion that Sniff and Crew will seek to cover their tracks.
The malicious prosecution of Donald Vincent Brooks is continuing. (Again, my opinion of the case) The investigator in the case that I think is dirty was attempting to brown-nose the Sheriff Elect after the election.
Your intrepid blogger was contacted by Stan Sniff major donor and failed assembly candidate Mohammad Ali Mazarei to pay off on a bet he made with me related to the election. I have not determined if I am going to return the call.
A personal note to Riverside DA Mike Hestrin: It was put to me that you refused to endorse Chad Bianco because of this blog. I don’t know you and I have never met you. I hope that rumor is false, not because I care, but because it makes you look weak in the face of corruption. That is not a good look for a DA who looks to be busy for a while with several messes within the Sheriff’s Department. Help the Sheriff clean it up so four years from now I have little or nothing to write about.
Several photos on social media started to emerge post election. In one case, it appears that the Sheriff or one of his Butt-Monkies got a group photo from Chad Bianco’s home station of Hemet removed. It is re-posted here.
I do not envy the job Chad Bianco has to deal with. But, man do I think he is equal to the task.
Your Intrepid Blogger will continue to follow up as events warrant. Thanks again to all within RSO and interested citizens that had the courage to come forward. I may have been the forum, but all of you supplied me with the tools to play a role in this election.
