Re: “Public safety workers allege racial discrimination and sexual harassment in Fountain

Trainor has to be fired. Corruption will continue until he leaves. Giving Anstine 10 years of health care is sickening. Look how many families Anstine destroyed because of his lies. Those lying Captains are still getting paid to do nothing. They dont have to respond to any calls. They make a shift roster and order toilet paper. Fire all of them and hire a command staff that works engines and are qualified to be leaders.

Re: “Public safety workers allege racial discrimination and sexual harassment in Fountain

The Fire Department was a hot bed of sexual and racial misconduct. The City paid an investigative company to come and cover up all the allegations. Mines and Associates was called in because the City had Fire Captains sending naked pictures to other firefighters wives while on duty, Captains saying racial statements towards a female firefighter and personal vendettas against employees that didn't agree with Chief Anstine. Council member Phil Thomas sat in on part of the investigation and the investigators were caught in a lie during the process. Scott Trainor spent a lot of money to call the employees that came forward a bunch of liars. He even blew off Council member Thomas when he was told about the lies. Not one Captain was disciplined or fired. They continue to work there. Since the investigation both Captains involved in the investigation have been written up numerous times since and still not even suspended.

Re: “City of Fountain conducts questionable deals, most employees live outside the city limits

Come on Pam everyone knows you are buddies with Darrin. He is Fountains big joke. He isn't qualified to be a Fire Chief. He has an associates Degree and an old Fire Instructor Certificate. He doesn't meet the requirements for Stratmoor Chief either. He has been friends with Dottie for years that is how he got hired, not on his qualifications. He has zero fire or medical certificates. He made $115,000 to show up on a scene and smoke a cigarette. His training Officer in Fountain would lie and falsify his training records. They would even throw in a CPR card without training. Look at the qualifications of Chief Orr and the other Chiefs in El Paso County.
You didn't even mention that Darrin was sued 3 times as a Chief for sexual assault and discrimination. All cases were settled for big money.
He even fired a paramedic because he tried too many times to save people that Darrin thought should have been left for dead. This same paramedic gave a disposition against Darrin for the sexual harassment suit against him.
Bottom line Fountain is a mess because Scott Trainor is a coward. He had plenty of documentation to fire Anstine but didn't because he was afraid of the backlash. Anstine didn't have to retire he knew he was about to be fired and took the buyout.
Get rid of Trainor and put in someone that has integrity and honor. What City Manager would let his Police Chief take pictures with a 2 time felon convicted cocaine dealer? That speaks for his character.

Re: “Star treatment

Colorado Springs PD is just as corrupt. A married dispatcher had affair with a police officer. She told her supervisors she was seperated from her husband at the time of the affair. Unfortunately she forgot to tell her husband they were seperated. He still doesn't know about the affair and she was never disciplined.

Re: “Star treatment

The Sheriff's Office is very corrupt. A deputy was fired because he chipped Deputy Day's tooth in a training class. They called it excessive use of force. But a month later an instructor broke another Deputies ribs slamming him on the ground. But he is in the good old boy network. They swept that under the rug.
