This doesn't sound like the letter was written from someone outside the office, unless Turner fed him these personnel issues. How would Donovan know that Cooper went hunting while injured, unless he went with him. How did he know that White "through people under the bus" during a riot at the fairground unless once again Donovan was present. Read other letters written by Donovan. This is not the same person. Probably a letter written by Turner and fed to Donovan for his signature. Oh and let's not give credit to Turner for the K-9s. That money was raised by the sheriff's foundation. But Turner is right about one thing. He did hold true to his promise to have quarterly meetings so that his friends and family could have somewhere to go once every 3 months.
The headline was a bit overstated, but the "Sheriff playing by the rules"?? I don't think so unless he gets to make them up as he goes and then put a twist on them so as to benefit his cause personally. Am I the only one who finds it interesting that the only deputies who seem to get in trouble are White supporters Surely more than coincidence.
I feel sorry for you because you are still believing in someone or something that so many of us, including me, believed. But I was wrong, very wrong about Turner. The deputies are very unhappy. There's no trust, you can't believe what Turner says, he is living example of hyperbole. It's all a show for him. Right now he's probably reading this, loving every minute of it because it's attention and he LOVES attention. It's sad. It really is and I'm sorry that we have to wait until 2014 to vote in someone new unless as Tenring suggests we go through the process of recall. I hope we do because the families of these deputies are suffering. The job is stressful enough. They don't deserve more stress caused by Turner. Its' just not right. These are good people.
He would need arrest powers in order to do that. Funny how the new captain and the undersheriff don't have arrest powers in Washington.
Yes! according to RCW 29A.56.110 it can be done. Where do I sign the petition?

Where did you that Cooper was being investigated? Oh please we don't need another person making stuff up.
Seriously. Is there anyone out there who actually believes anything Turner says anymore? He hides behind privacy laws or vague policies that he can't cite but he shows up on the white horse to save the day when someone has a loose hang nail describing it as a massive stab wound to the hand. I admit I was smitten by the guy, looked good, seemed to say the right things; but boy was I wrong. No light duty? Come on, does he think we're that dumb. All office work is light duty and there's plenty of that to go around. Good for Cooper to run against him. I hope several file and boot him out in August.
No light duty? Det Bolster and Dep Stroe must be all caught up. This sounds like retaliation. Maybe not as a result of Cooper planning to run but certainly because he was a major thorn in Turner's side during the 2010 election. Cooper is right on one thing. Turner has consistently targeted White supporters on what Turner calls insubordination or dereliction of duties. Not any of Turner supporters (what's left of them) can do anything wrong even when the goatee is a little obvious. The no light duty claim is bull. There's lots of suspect and victim interviews to be done, report writing and other things. And why the secret about who Turner reassigned to Cooper's Sgt spot so that he could bring his one friend from California? Does Turner think we are that dumb? Good for Cooper to take a stand. I hope more file against Turner and boot him out in August.
Perhaps he'll be around for awhile; if we're lucky he'll be walla walla's next sheriff in 2014
