I think Jennifer Higgins is a loser. That has been my opinion of her since I had to block her on facebook for going semi-psycho on me a few months in to the escalation of the campaign in 2018.
Your intrepid blogger received word that Jennifer Higgins was terminated for lying to investigators in an attempt to “get” former Captain Andrew Shouse. I am not sure why Higgins felt she needed to lie about her “relationship” with Shouse. Some people think Sniff was using her as a straw man to get Shouse.
Given what I have learned about the personal conduct of Andrew Shouse, Jennifer Higgins did not need to lie about him to get him fired. Just one blogger writing here.
It appears that the investigators were able to determine it was consensual or that her account of the incident was a lie. Higgins is alleged to have had a few dalliances over the years. In the era of #metoo, it is becoming easier to filter liars.
The key issue here is that people like Shouse and Higgins flourished under Stan Sniff.
The first is of him sitting at a local restaurant with his wife. Note, none of his entourage are with him. Funny things happen when you are no longer sheriff.
I’d have thought at least his buddies at the Riverside Puke-Enterprise would have dropped by to say hi… given that they had each other on speed dial for 11+ years. Nope. No Marion. No JT. No big chested women. No bowling ball Vest. None of them, just Stanley.
The second photo is of Stanley walking up to a county building. I’d imagine that scene would have been quite different two years ago.
Meantime, Sheriff Chad Bianco is rebuilding the decimated department.
That’s right folks, Bob Epps – he of Bomb Squad fame. In case you’ve forgotten about his alleged physical abuse incidents, incompetence, industrial espionage and misuse of federal grant funded equipment… you can read all about it here.
Bob Epps is famous in RSO circles for being a punk drill sergeant wanna be in Recruit Training. He yells at people “I’m gonna pop your heart!”
Epps has himself another problem. When he is not trying to big-time recruits his live-in girlfriend (or wife?) is apparently emasculating him in the home front. I wonder if she screamed at him about popping his heart…
WILDOMAR — Riverside County Sheriff’s Department today confirmed the arrest of Jodie Lynn Gray – City of Temecula’s first female fire chief – after a reported domestic disturbance involving the official and her spouse at the couple’s Wildomar residence.
Responding to a request for additional information and details about Sunday morning’s arrest, Riverside County Sheriff’s Media Information Bureau told RCNS in an email this afternoon that the incident which led to Gray’s arrest began late Saturday evening, June 1.
“At 11:47 p.m., deputies responded to the report of a domestic disturbance in the 24900 block of Pasture Court, Wildomar,” RSO’s MIB wrote. “During the investigation, deputies determined a crime occurred and (Gray) was ultimately arrested for misdemeanor battery.”
Riverside County Sheriff’s online jail booking records indicate the 51-year-old was arrested about twenty minutes after midnight by deputies assigned to patrol the Wildomar area. She was later booked into Cois Byrd Detention Center in Murrieta on suspicion of domestic battery, a misdemeanor.
Gray was released within hours after her arrest after posting $5,000 bail, and she is scheduled to be arraigned at Murrieta’s Southwest Justice Center, July 29.
“The investigation remains ongoing and no additional information is being released at this time,” sheriff’s officials explained.
Fast forward to 2018 – Court records show that candidate Colleen Wallace has been convicted of lying to a police officer about her identity, driving on a suspended license and driving without registration and without insurance, (San Bernardino Superior Court case # 604773CW) .
For these criminal offenses the court granted her probation in 2001. Wallace violated her probation within only a few months, when she wrote a bad check to the San Bernardino Superior Court (view court docket entry).
In 2008 a bench warrant was issued for Wallace’s arrest, which resulted in her arrest and arraignment, (view court docket entry).
Grab your popcorn folks, Banning is a trainwreck and it looks like Doug Schulze is the bankrupt conductor. Meantime, the bureaucrats that botched the background check likely will never be held accountable.
Remember Sgt. Selfie? Who can’t – Robert Garcia is his name. Sgt. Garcia is REPUTED to be a jerk to his men. Sgt. Garcia is held in low regard by those that have talked to this blogger. (Ahem, Garcia, when studying your law courses… ahem OFF THE CLOCK… check with your professor about libel laws and how they work. Because I think you’re a loser and by the time I am done writing about you everyone else will also) Many also rip on the guy for being a “Gym Body” meaning he looks strong until a 150 pound crank fiend rolls him on a traffic stop. I can’t speak to Garcia’s apparent lack of real strength, I just know what sources tell me about him.
So guess what Huskey did? Put Garcia on a special team as its’ Sergeant. Nothing says up yours to your men than doing that on your way out the door. Then, of course there is Sgt. Geronimo Contrares, made the admin Sgt. by soon to be departed Captain Huskey. According to accounts given to this blogger, Contrares may well have caused a couple of lawsuits against the county with his conduct in the year or so since becoming the admin sgt. (when he allegedly isn’t slipping people in to Cochellafest without tickets) DOH!
Then we have the case of Kevin Vest. Vest was and is still reviled by most of the sources your intrepid blogger has in a manner similar to invertebrate reptilian slime.
Kevin Vest got hammered on Facebook by SHERIFF BIANCO. (Repeat as many times as necessary – Garcia, you may need a buddy to help you with this one…)
Did Kevin Vest destroy evidence? That is the question of the day from your intrepid blogger.
We have been told that the Kevin Duffy serial child molester, rapist, abuser case is going to explode again. SHERIFF BIANCO has said it will be investigated and closure will be given to the victims (or something similar). Did Kevin Vest and others destroy the evidence? What happened to the stuff Captain Leonard Purvis reputedly was ordered to take to the second floor from Hemet?
It is going to be interesting times as the County is looking to wrap up a slew of employment practices cases, worker’s comp abuses and the like with the new Sheriff pushing for justice. It is also going to be interesting as the new management team keeps uncovering hidden money, malfeasance and corruption… no amount of deleted data by Kevin Vest (if the allegation is true that is) will stop SHERIFF BIANCO and crew from the clean up of the department.
In other news – as not seen in the local media – the morale of the department is sky high, hiring is surging and the Sheriff himself has said there is enough money to restore punitive cuts made by the old Sheriff.
We’ve been pretty clear. The local media in Riverside County is abhorrent. They were 100% complicit in the corruption of Stan Sniff, and similar to the New York Times and Washington Post – both caught in multiple lies related to President Trump – the Desert Sun is on a rampage to assuage its’ endorsement of Stan Sniff.
Neither of the major local toilet papers have bothered to cover the myriad of efficiency improvements implemented by the Sheriff. Neither covered the CCW issue, because at the end of the day most of their employees are gun-grabbing liberals anyway.
There has been no follow up on things like Kevin Duffy, Sniff Management Personnel that got away with sexual harassment (think #METOO), crimes, cover-ups, gross mismanagement and the like.
What we do get from the Desert Scum is a chicken-feed cheap shot headline.
The headline reads “DID CHAD BIANCO LIE!?“, but the article is pretty much the same pablum we’ve grown tired of since the Desert Sun failed to properly cover the Stan-Sniff deputy cheating scandal cover-up.
You have to read down 7(!) Paragraphs (note the similar pattern in the New York Times or the Washington Post) – to get to the meat of the story. The first seven paragraphs were replete with implications of secrecy and lies lies lies by the Sheriff.
Although the proposed rate isn’t what Bianco promised, this year’s 2.19% rate increase and next year’s projected 5% increase are not as dramatic as rate increases in the years before he took office.
Imagine that. But, Bianco is a liar because the rates did not go down. It is similar to media attacking President Trump’s Tax Reform that dropped taxes for 85% of Americans
Then after all the cheap shots to lead the article – there is this:
Even though many said they were hopeful Bianco could lower the rate in the weeks leading up to the meeting, officials from Temecula, Menifee, Moreno Valley and La Quinta commended Bianco for reining in the rate at which the contract cost is increasing.
Now why did you call Chad Bianco a liar, Desert Sun? I think you owe him an apology, front page above the fold.
And Bianco thinks his 5% estimate for next year’s rate increase was on the high side.
“With what we are doing, I can’t imagine it going anywhere but down,” he said in an email to The Desert Sun.
Very interesting that an article headlined “Broken Promises” has these sorts of quotes in it. This is what Media outlets do when they feel forced to have to cover positive news about electeds they don’t like. (Especially a Conservative Republican like Chad Bianco)
La Quinta City Manager Frank Spevacek said Tuesday’s meeting was a refreshing change from prior contract partner meetings but he was taking a wait-and-see approach to determine if the new sheriff’s administration could rein in costs.
Note – no mention that the prior contract partner meetings were with Desert Sun endorsed Stan Sniff. Imagine that.
“Proof of their commitment to this new way will be determined by the going forward actions the sheriff implements,” he said.
I can hardly wait to serve the Desert Sun some more crow when the reforms bear more fruit
A couple of side items. Stan Sniff’s cronies that used to control CCW Classes and ranges now have competition. One of the many reforms brought in by Chad Bianco are new ranges and new vendors authorized for the CCW Program. H Paul Payne, a man I believe to be invertebrate slime, who inexplicably is in a position of authority in gun rights groups has been silent while Bianco does in 4 months what his boy Sniff did the exact opposite of in 11 years.
Omitted from the Desert Sun Story – conveniently so by the way – is the hiring binge going on by the Sheriff’s Department. Inside sources tell me that the fiscal mismanagement under Stan Sniff was so pervasive that just simple changes to methods of doing business are allowing the department to make their money stretch further. It is unclear to this blogger if the extent of the mismanagement, what I believe to be felony embezzlement, misappropriation, commingling and accounting fraud that was the rule under sniff will ever be fully known or revealed. This was also omitted from the Desert Sun Story.
We had written previously that one of our favorite punching bags, Jason “Deuce” Horton was being hired as the Chief of Police for Yakima, WA. Well, Horton quit his job in Code Enforcement and was already packing his bags. The City Council missed the memo and hired someone else. DOH! I guess that means Horton can glare at me at the next CAGOP Convention in Indian Wells in September.
I am waiting to hear about several individual cases of employees who were screwed over by the Sniff regime. People like Tammy Smoak, Gabe Dennington and Lance Colmer come to mind. I am also very curious to see what is coming next related to the massive cover-up of one of the worst serial child molesters in American History (if everything alleged is true) Kevin Duffy. I am sure the Desert Sun will have nothing to say, or they will try to blame Chad Bianco for it.
If the Desert Sun is following the typical leftist media pattern – they are going to set a narrative that Bianco is a liar, tries to hide stuff (which they did in this cheap shot article) and is in over his head trying to run the department. Watch for it, I’ve seen it for years from media outlets, especially those butt-hurt when their endorsee loses an election.
