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

I'm still waiting for an answer from my last question! And for the record, I have absolutely nothing to do with the Sheriff's Department. I just find it quite entertaining that people are such cowards. If he's breaking the law, do something about it! Otherwise, you have nothing. You absolutely have no probable cause that he's committed a crime. If you have, write an arrest warrant. Law enforcement 101 people, not that difficult.

Re: “Reader: Progressives want to steal America as we know it

Nothing in the bill of Rights or the Constitution call out any rights to possess ammunition for firearms. Nor does it say that one keeping and bearing weapons is allowed to discharge firearms.
That said, if you're not permitted to have ammo, but you can keep your guns, would that make you happy?

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

@Holmes
You must be one of Elders Cronies, you are the perfect example of the pot calling the kettle black. Telling others that they should use their Real name and yet you wont. Dont worry, your ship is sinking and you will be scurrying off that ship with the rest of all the other rats that are covering up for elders corruption. I just feel bad for all the hard men and women working at EPSO being subjected to people like you and Elder. But the word is getting out and soon all of you will be held accountable........ can you hear the sound....... the train is coming. Go Mike Angley and thank you to Pam Zubeck and DirtyElder.com for shining a light on Evil Elder and the money hungry minions that support him!!!

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

Bunch of pansies! You talk so tough but are too cowardly to act! If he's committed a crime, make an arrest! Otherwise shut your pie holes! You're sworn correct? If so you have arrest authority! Write an arrest warrant and get it signed by a judge! Oh yeah, you don't have PC! You'd rather gossip on an irrelevant news outlet blog rather than take action. Now I know why you chose to remain anonymous....I'd be embarrassed too spreading such nonsense!!

Re: “The challenge of dance photography

Hi Terry, Thanks for your note! I agree. It's extreme to make that many images, but keep in mind this is a performance of 10 studios in an hour... each studio gets a couple of different performances and I wanted to make sure I have images that work for everyone... under different circumstances I wouldn't take nearly as many. Thanks for your comment Terry!

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

@Holmes ... why don't YOU man up, get up off your knees, grow a pair, stop being complacent, and stand up against the corruption of the Elder Administration. You keep playing your diversion tactics and have this holier than thou attitude. You kinda sound a little like Bill Huffor in a way. He always walked around with a superiority complex. Anyway, get a grip. Your so-called leader is as crocked as they come.

Ask yourself ... as you sit by watching your boss commit crimes ... are YOU "faithfully performing the duties...as Deputy Sheriff..." As a SWORN officer, it would be your duty to uphold the law and enforce it. Sitting back and watching your boss commit crimes and doing nothing about it shows a lot about your commitment to upholding and enforcing the law. Maybe your badge oughta be stripped from you.

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

@Holmes Obviously, you are one of Bill's buddies, and that's fine for you.

You want us to "Faithfully perform the duties" we swore to do. That includes enforcing the law. Our boss has been breaking the law. There is a conflict for us to try to investigate our own boss, so we are asking for someone else to do it. I have a son and daughter to support, so I'm not going to risk my own job.

There is a difference between disrespecting your boss and blowing the whistle when he is crooked.

"Elder was elected by the people." Yeah... so was Trump.

Don't forget... The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

Re: “Steve Garufi, a Colorado guy

This guy is not what he appears. Total narcissist and hypocrite, claiming to be a Christian spreading empathy. Anyone who opposes his opinion and view will be immediately deleted or rudely taken off his post. There are better people in the world with real issues to help mankind than this person of whiny persona.

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

"Faithfully perform the duties...as a Deputy Sheriff..." Ring a bell?? Elder was elected by the people. Quit your whining and abide by your oath. Stop making excuses and try to be a professional until such time as a new Sheriff is elected. So pathetic, everyone thinks that they are a victim! Seek new employment!!

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

I'm not disrespecting my boss! If it's so bad, leave! If not, shut up and do your job! Otherwise, grow a pair, man up and professionally dissent. Nothing like a bunch of back stabbing cowards patrolling our streets and upholding the law! Wonderful integrity!

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

@Holmes, In a state where deputies serve "at the pleasure of the Sheriff" you are not likely to see a lot of us willing to use our real names in public, and show up to work the next day only to find our cards don't unlock the door anymore. And your real name is "Holmes?"

Mike Randall ... I don't know who the heck you are (or maybe I do), but I have been waiting for your posts, so it's good to see you have finally posted!

I am SO eager to find out what's in that KRW report!

Pam ... where are we on that copy?

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

Oh and Bill, I forgot. Your address is not secret. It took me just five minutes to find numerous different websites that listed your home address in Gleneagle. It's on the Colorado Secretary of State's Office website, on some voter registration websites and on a few others.

Amateur!

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

Hi'ya Bill,

One of your employees here, posting under my favorite fake name of course. Sorry about that (not really) but we all know how vindictive you are and how you threaten all of us that, if we aren't rowing the boat in the direction you want it, then you will throw us off the boat.

You swore me in when you took office. There was NO notary there when I signed the form. You weren't there either. Just some staff members who had us sign the form. I have no idea when you signed it. I guess we do know when it was notarized. How can you say the story is crap? If it is your claim that it was notarized at the time I signed it, then you are the filthy liar that you have been accused of being.

"Elder contended that Dietz and Mejia attended the swearing in ceremonies at Pikes Peak Center and elsewhere and, therefore, witnessed the signatures." I'm sure they were there, but neither of them had me sign the form. There were several other staff members helping with that."

"The Indy also asked Dietz about a photo produced by Elder at the news conference showing Dietz standing at a cart in what appears to be a Sheriff's Office conference room with a room full of officers. Elder said the photo proved Dietz witnessed all the signatures." That statement would be hilarious if not such a sad example of who you are. You swore us in and we signed the form over at the Pikes Peak Center, not in the Office of the Sheriff building. Another lie on your part.

"You're a journalist. I'm the Sheriff. I get my opinion, just like you do ... and my opinion is you're irresponsible."

And in our opinion, Bill, you are corrupt. People voted for you because they thought you were the "savior" to rescue us from Maketa (I didn't share in that opinion of you). You weren't. You are worse. Your "reign" is all about political favors and taking care of yourself and your friends.

I only hope and pray that the rest of the community will wake up to who you are and find us a Sheriff who we will be proud to work for. We have so many good and honest people who work here. None of them hold the rank of Commander or above. When will you release the most recent KRW audit? We all participated, and told the auditors just exactly who you are. Please release it!

And please resign. I have never been so embarrassed to work for this office.
