YES! According to RCW 29A.56.110 it can be done. Where can 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
HOw is it hearsay? Read Turner's letter. Read Blackman's letter dated two months prior to Turner's letter. How about Turner manning up and saying the truth. Dozier is right, Turner does have the power to appoint whoever he wants, when he wants. So why didn't Turner just say that. we wouldn't have to like it, but at least he would be telling the truth. instead its all smoke and mirrors and trying to blame Blackman for this. just man up Turner and stop lying
Turner's true character is coming out. It looks like he's been planning this all along. He wants the community to believe that its coincidence that Blackman retiring has created the opportunity for this new guy from LAPD to join his administration, but its a ruse. Now we're expected to believe that it's "difficult" and "based on many factors". That sure isn't how Turner presented the story in his own words last week. He now wants the comunity to believe that it maybe something else as he states that he can't speak about personnel matters. It's descipable.
Glad that theres some closure and people know what really happened. I agree with Baracuda, no politics with this one.
