Re: “Reader: Don't overstep your power, Sheriff Elder

Just to clarify...it is MY understanding the reasoning behind the judges ruling against the Elder Gang is due to the very fact Elder was holding them WITHOUT the authority of the Federal 287g program where ICE detainers can be serviced. The Rube shot himself in the foot on this one and whilst his foot was in his own mouth.

Re: “Local races begin shaping up

Instead of damning with faint praise, perhaps you could conduct some real journalism and run down this story?

As a delegate, unaffiliated with either camp for the Sheriff race, I was appalled by the childish antics enacted by Sheriff Elders supporters at the Republican Assembly. I conducted my research prior to the Assembly, but had not decided how my delegate vote would go. I was walking on the sidewalk, attempting to enter the UCCS Assembly Hall which was inundated with Elder supporters. I was initially not approached by persons carrying Elder signs because I was walking with a person wearing a Mike Angley shirt but I am not deaf and heard their snide remarks, a real turn off!

After the credentialing process, I was able to capture a birds eye seat and take in all of the festivities. To be quite honest, The Republican Assembly was more entertaining than any soap opera or junior high school dance. Saturday was a long and drawn out process, but it also gave me time to sit and absorb all that I heard and saw. One appalling example: A younger, tall, dark headed male, in a white Elder shirt was screaming profanity at an older male delegate and the delegate turned around and left the site. I had my notebook and I have many other examples I could share.
I am a Colorado Springs native, I love my city and I have many connections. I say this only because I was able to use one of my connections to identify several of the most vociferous Elder supporters as employees of The Sheriff; yes deputies, lieutenants, sergeants and chiefs. I have reflected for several days to see if my feeling changed they have not! I am both terrified and disgusted to think persons sworn to uphold and protect the safety of El Paso County would be so disrespectful, menacing and intimidating to individuals who have volunteered their time to become delegates for the betterment of our city. Many things have changed in society but voter intimidation is a FELONY.
I will close by saying I knew Sheriff Elder when he was a deputy. I had great respect for him at one time, but that is now gone. I will do everything in my power to help the Mike Angley for Sheriff campaign. Shame on you Bill Elder for allowing the power of the position of Sheriff to change you so drastically. You have lower yourself enough to use a family member of your recently fallen detective to further your campaign; that is the lowest of low. I would also like to mention your constituents/voters of El Paso County are not as ignorant and uninformed as you presume.

Re: “Local races begin shaping up

"Former Air Force security officer?" Really?? Pam did your editor give you a space limitation?

How about we tell it like it is...Michael Angley, a highly decorated 25 year veteran of the USAF Office of Special Investigations. Michael's federal law enforcement career culminated at Peterson Air Force Base where he was Commander of an entire USAF OSI region.

I thought the Indy was the only paper in town who would tell the truth, THE WHOLE TRUTH, and nothing but.

Have you been taking lessons from the Gazette?

Re: “UPDATE: Ex-officer says he witnessed order to notarize deputy oaths

Shame on the Gazette, news media, and so called anti-corruption, conservative local radio talk show hosts (Krank, Randall, Tron) who are looking at the corrupt leadership of EPSO with a blind eye. It is you who are supposed to be keeping our elected officials honest...I guess if they are socalled Republicans you give them a pass? We're supposed to be better than that!! Thank you Pam Zubeck and CS Indy for shedding light on these cockroaches!

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

Unfortunately for Holmes, his response to the dirtyelder.com and the Indy article is what is full of crap! Once again, all a turd like this can do is name call rather than argue facts which are not on his side. Perhaps if he pulled his head out of Elder's rectum and smelled some oxygen his thinking might be more objective. Mr. Holmes, please pick a single issue and argue with FACTS, if you can find any. Perhaps a couple of examples you might wish to argue further when you are re-oxygenated:
1) Elder wearing a pathfinder pin...pictures do not lie, only Elder did while stealing valor from those who REALLY served.
2) County Commissioners settling sexual harassment lawsuit at EPSO while other lawsuits are filed and in the pipeline...would like to see your argument against public records.
3) Cronyism and stealing promotions from those who EARNED them to give to those who PAID for them...again please argue those public records.
My guess is unless you are so in the tank we won't here from you for a while as you try to extricate yourself from your crappy position(s).
