Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

Using Sergeant Conrad as your excuse is absolutely BS. You should be ashamed of yourself, anyone worth their salt in investigations can figure out the times are off and you are lying. You have lied about providing audits, following your own policies as you changed them to suit your agenda. While you campaigned you told everyone what they wanted to hear, now your butt cannot cash those checks. You are unprepared, inexperienced and a poor excuse as a leader. You do not deserve to be in this role, the deputies deserve better and so does the public who gave their trust to you - a phony and a fake. Quit your whining, step down and quit trying something you are not and can never be.

Time to bring in someone who has experience and is a proven leader - Go Mike Angley!!!

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

Dear Bill,
Welcome to the public life! After all, according to you, Make no mistake, this is what I signed up for! (Taken directly from your own website). By the way, YOU are the one who made your address public when YOU put it on a PUBLIC DOCUMENT.

So much for the transparency you promised. Maybe if youd quit lying out your backside, you could keep your story straight. Seems the ONLY time you will talk to the media in person, or even give a statement is when the article is positive. Anyone who dare come out against you best know that you wont be providing a statement. The guilty always hide. Youre a snake. Evil viper.

Go ANGLEY!

Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap"

Hey Elder,

Liar, liar ... pants on fire!!! Your lies are catching up with you man. Your abuse of power is sickening.

And, let's be honest. I know it's difficult for you, but you are only telling Pam that she overstepped the line BECAUSE she is the only journalist with enough balls to call you out on your crap and you don't like it! You're pissed because you don't have her on her knees like you do with all the other reporters in this town. You know, like your buddies at the Gazette and KRDO, that bow down to you and twist the truth!

And hey, if you want to talk about who's worse at something. I got one for you; YOU! YOU, by far, are the WORST Sheriff ever! You don't even rise to the level of what and who a Sheriff represents! In my opinion, which is shared by many, you DO NOT deserve to wear the badge of Sheriff nor did you truly earn it.

And, don't be a hater. Whoever is beyond DIRTYELDER.com is only doing what is right. They are working diligently to expose the FILTH and CORRUPTION that plagues the El Paso County Sheriff's Office, has placed a black cloud over this county and has destroyed many lives as a result. YOU are the epicenter of all that is evil. Don't be hater toward those that are doing what is right in trying to expose you for who you really are.

You're a disgrace man.

Re: “One chronicle of street (and other sexual) harassment in Colorado Springs

My daughter was sexually abused by her own father we reported it and if I wouldn't have found out she probably wouldn't have said anything went to police station made reports and still have done nothing about it they said they couldn't arrest him with no evidence but I have text messages from him to my daughter then they wonder why people take matters into their own hands....

Re: “Reader: Keep the "dirt" buried

This from the National Archives: "The National Archives is releasing documents previously withheld in accordance with the JFK Assassination Records Collection Act. The vast majority of the Collection (88%) has been open in full and released to the public since the late 1990s. The records at issue are documents previously identified as assassination records, but withheld in full or withheld in part."
In other words, this is merely part of an ongoing release of information regarding the assassination of JFK. The release and the release dates were legislated. If you don't want to see them, then don't look at them.
Usually people who are made nervous about attention being given to sexual assault incidents are those people who have themselves committed sexual assault. Is that you, by any chance??

Why did it take over 6 months to come clean? The notaries committed fraud and showed be prosecuted as should Larry Borland.

Re: “Reader: Keep the "dirt" buried

If a woman is sexually assaulted by an older person then it doesn't count? Should all women who've been sexually assaulted keep quiet to "Keep the Peace"? I guess "Love thy Neighbor" doesn't mean a thing when one is assaulted, only when they speak of it. YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM!

Re: “Former El Paso County Sheriff’s Office notary says top officials ordered falsifying of hundreds of oath affidavits

the cover up is as bad or worse than the crime... when are people going to realize this? admit mistakes, don't order people to break the rules. go after these cover uppers. we may not know for sure if the notary is required but we do know this cover up was against the law... c'mon law enforcement... enforce the law!! this good ol' boy attitude in law enforcement has lead to much of the disdain they are experiencing.

Re: “Former El Paso County Sheriff’s Office notary says top officials ordered falsifying of hundreds of oath affidavits

@Archie,

Yes, the people who ordered them to unlawfully notarize the forms are guilty of a crime, to wit:

18-8-306. Attempt to influence a public servant.
Any person who attempts to influence any public servant by means of deceit or by threat of violence or economic reprisal against any person or property, with the intent thereby to alter or affect the public servant's decision, vote, opinion, or action concerning any matter which is to be considered or performed by him or the agency or body of which he is a member, commits a class 4 felony.

And they SHOULD be charged with the above crime. Coercing a public servant, which a Notary is, to perform an unlawful act out of fear for their jobs is a perfect example of why the above statute was written. But.... will anyone in a position of authority do anything about it? That is the problem here. People seem to just get away with everything.

You probably remember when Maketa's scandal blew up. Everyone noted that there were signs of problemS, even an article here on the Independent a year prior, and everyone asked "Why was nothing done earlier?" Well, people should ask themselves that exact question today. There are plenty of signs that things are evil at the Sheriff's Office.

WILL SOMETHING BE DONE?

you would rather have Clinton bombing Syria and the rest of dozens of countries by drone? I don't know which of the two is better- but the least the Army and Air Force could do is stop wearing their goddamn combat uniform out in public.

Re: “One chronicle of street (and other sexual) harassment in Colorado Springs

I think what i find frustrating here is that it feels like this savior-fetish that a lot of men are feeling right now. It's like street harassment and workplace assault and all other abuse we endure is now a genre of pulp fiction that is always explicit, titillating, and then ends on a note of sanctimony. You say you're trying to understand- and I'm going to take you at your word, but if so, can we look together at where you need to work? First, like much pulp fiction, you have a weird fixation on her physicality here, whether you meant it that way or not. Sure, it provides a theme, but I'm 5'8" and I've been raped twice by age 39 and experience the exact same crap on the street despite being well past my prime as the standards go - as do my friends who both fit and don't fit the fantasies of the male sexual gaze of little and innocent (do you think you might be fixating on this as a factor as a result of your own gaze?). Do you think if I was a few inches taller I could've pushed him off me more easily? Sure, it can be true if you happen to have a visible identity that coincides with a porn category, you're extra screwed (pun intended) if you try to exist in public, but there's no shortage of dudes that literally harass every woman who walks by. Even old ugly hags like me. Second, stop it with the self-congratulatory humility here. You're probably feeling pretty great that you brought this to our attention... newsflash: women already know this. And guess what? So do men. You just don't know if we know that you know, so of course, you gotta publish your woke-ness so we know you're one of the special men, one of the good guys. Well, we know that too. Look, nobody thinks all men are rapists, or that you're all culpable on a personal level for the patriarchy and misogyny that creates rape culture. But we also know there is a lot of gray area that our good guy allies walk around in. And we can't tell you where you need to draw the line - because we aren't in those spaces, at least not the full us. If you really wanted to do something to stop and change all this, (here's my Third point) do this: Instead of a salacious description of all the dirty things we encounter on the street as reported by a definitely-not-turned-on-boyfriend-asserting-his-territorial-claim, give us an honest, vulnerable assessment of the ways YOU have failed us. Tell us that you're conflicted with (it's probably in your porn history) and the ways you worry you've failed us. Tell us what you think is unfair. Ask us what we want you know. Ask us to help you be better and share your failures and your remorse. Don't speak for us. Don't explain the shit we deal with to us or for us. Dont save us. Save yourself my friend. We been out here for years and we're working on saving our damn selves. You do that.
