No just pointing out how Turner likes to mislead voters. Doesnt mean that the K9s arent good dogs with good deputies, but touting a top spot when the cohort is a size of 3 or 4 is stretching the truth. What's sad is that those deputies know Turner is doing this, how humiliating for them.
No they were not trained. Well, let me qualify that with the three Sgts and five deputies I spoke with. No directive from Turner or the PA. ? No training or mention of it at all.
Yes and Turner could very well be the leader of that world and lead by example
Cooper is a victim of Turner's political poutiness. When Turner couldnt bully him out, he tried humiliation with a job offer that was half his pay. And then when that didnt work, Turner claimed "no light duties left" and sent Cooper home. Then Turner hires a private detective to spy on him, just like he did with a reserve who backed White. Its just dirty politics.
This letter was about honesty. Is that not the most important trait of a peace officer? If Turner were a deputy, rather than a politician, he would have been discredited long ago and then fired. If you cant tell the truth as an officer of the court, you are worth nothing. Ask the PD. They lost a good officer over a lie. How many lies are too many for you?
Dont just meet the candidates, spend some time with them Ask questions. I bet Turner doesnt give the whole truth. But maybe your first impressions are better than mine. I drank the Turner koolaid and regret it. Funny thing, I saw the red flags, felt the gut talking back at me, but didnt listen I overheard a conversation the other day at the aviary. A group of men were talking about the election and doing the math 16 years LAPD, 2.5 years attorney (after 4 years law school), retirement, and then 2 years Ash Hollow. Just doesn't add up. That was their conclusion too
Maybe if morale were as high as Turner claims, cooper would beg for that doctors note
Maybe just his secretary then
I' m so tired of the insinuation that life before Turner was filled with deputy screw ups, failed investigations, poor leadership, backwards thinking and 18th century training. Every letter to the editor seems to build up all the wonderful and amazing things that Turner has done, but none of it is new. K9s been there done that - went away because of too much overtime to cover the cost of the deputy handler. Personnel costs never go away--one time cost of the dogs is easy. Anyone can do that. Quality trainings always - the difference is that Turner spends thousands on outside people. Before Turner - the sheriff sent one to two deputies to be trained and then came back and trained the other deputies. In house specialists is what we have, but Turner prefers to spend money outside agencies.
I will vote yes for any pool configuration but I would prefer a family poolwith something for all ages.
