Re: “Sheriff Bill Elder calls Indy story "crap" is for cowards. All claims made have no credibility and are 99.9% innaccurate. If legitimate, names would be provided by the accusers. Laughable because the accusations are made by former, bitter employees who were fired with cause by the Sheriff!

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

While we know that attacking the media is all the rage these days (especially among white male Republicans in high places) it doesnt sound like she published Elders home address..... rather he wrote it himself on a public form that was then obtained by the Independent. Sheriff Elder leaked his own home address, it probably wasnt a big secret anyway!
Everyone knows that notarized signatures are to be witnessed. Apparently County officials think they are above the law. Thank you, Pam Zubek, for continuing your long and distinguished career, informing us about the slimy underbelly of El Paso County politics. At least the shenanigans can be exposed, even if DA May will take no action against his buddies.
It doesnt sound like the new sheriff is an improvement over the old. Instead of attacking the press and ripping into a female reporter no less Elder needs to take responsibility for his own actions and clean up his act.

Re: “Police are ticketing far more homeless campers than they once did

Just fyi, I can't recall ever seeing a homeless person lugging around a shovel to "dig a hole"...shovels cost money, and if you're homeless, what money you have is probably going to go to more pertinent purchases like food, clothing or toiletries. So to suggest that they could dig a hole and bury it is kind of ludacris.

Mental health facilities need to be reinstated, and we need to be actively helping these people. It seems with the way policies are going we are just creating more homeless, and a lot of us are closer than we care to realize. It only takes one bad turn to end up on the street, and the numbers are growing Nationwide.

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

A simple search of William D Elder will yield the same results. As soon as you become an elected official, you kiss your privacy goodbye. Sad but true.

Publishing his home address was incredibly irresponsible. I'm disappointed.

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.

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

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

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


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.

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

My guess is that the people who ordered the notaries to sign are guilty of some crime. Holding out something of value to force a public officer to exercise his duties unlawfully is probably some sort of corrupt influencing or public intimidation . The notaries should have refused, taken the consequences, and sued the ever-lovin' out of the sheriff and his corrupt-influencing , public intimidating staff. I'd say the sheriff and his staff are guilty if there is a criminal statute on the books dealing with their behavior in this case.

Re: “Notary duties by the book

It seems all that which Pam Zubek has so excellently reported (as is usual for her) will be ignored by those being exposed.
This truly proves to me the wrong folk are controlling COUNTY OF EL PASO inc., with the "elected" puppets doing as their handlers direct them. Satan's municipal corporate system of governance needs to be dissolved ASAP, as it is clear they won't follow their own statutory policies and will fake whatever is necessary to continue the plunder of the populace.

@MikeRandall ... Dan May is just as bad as Bill Elder. They are a match made in ... well, I think you know where I am going with that one! It's a shame that the elected "leadership" in this county is so corrupt. It is quite sickening.

Interesting note about the KRW report. So, glad you brought that one up!
