Sheriff Watch


Free People has heard from one of our own that Bristol County Sheriff Hodgson in MA, is, with help from the State’s Committees of Safety, fighting in the Supreme Court against the Federal Government’s overreaching authority within his county.  The Committees of Safety are a powerful force for good at fighting against the existing government for the proper constitutional authority.  We will try to get more details for you.

“Out of Control” Cop Allegedly Brutalizes Guests at Dem Fundraiser

Posted by Staff, AlterNet at 8:00 AM on June 30, 2009.

 “I have never personally witnessed law enforcement officers behave this brutally and incompetently …”

This time, the Republicans seem to have decided that they will filibuster things at will. The government cannot function this way. The Senate is broken, and it needs to be fixed.

San Diego Union Tribune:

The sheriff’s deputy who broke up a fund-raiser for Francine Busby looked “out of control” as he doused guests with pepper spray, pulled out a stun gun, and dropped a 60-year-old woman to the floor, witnesses said.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department has launched an internal investigation into the incident Friday night at the home on Rubenstein Avenue in the Cardiff community of Encinitas.

Authorities were called to the home of Shari Barman and Jane Stratton after a neighbor complained about noise, and Barman was arrested in the ensuing altercation with Deputy Marshall Abbott.

“He had a raged look in his eyes and his head was bobbing from side to side,” said Kimberley Beatty, who attended the event. She said she called 911 to report that the officer “appeared to be out of control.”

Beatty spoke Monday afternoon at a news conference along with two other guests at the fund-raiser, Christine Nava and Julie Chippendale.

Chippendale also said that Abbott “looked like he was feeling out of control.”

“His eyes were darting around the room as if we may have guns,” she said. “Guests were yelling, ‘What are you doing? Let her go!’ ”

Busby, 58, is a Democrat seeking the 50th Congressional District seat in 2010. She said about 30 of her supporters gathered at the home to raise campaign money for next year’s race against Congressman Brian Bilbray.

She said she used an amplified microphone from about 8 to 8:30 p.m. to address what she described as 30 or fewer guests; witnesses said an unidentified neighbor interrupted the speech by heckling Busby, calling her a “loser” and obscenities.

June 19, 2009 FREE Training for Sheriffs Compliments of Federal Government (Buying their support?)

Marion County Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team took advantage of free training earlier this month.”

Published: June 19, 2009

 Members of the Marion County Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team took part in free training offered by another area law enforcement agency earlier this month.

The team reviewed such topics as building entry and clearing; dealing with a barricaded suspect, hostage rescue and active shooter (as in schools); and high risk warrant service planning. Marion County Sheriff’s deputies are equipped with the latest, up to date weapons and gear and trained with it. Equipment used includes M-16 assault rifles; H&K MP5 sub-machine guns; .308 cal. sniper rifles; Glock .40 cal. pistol outfitted with a flashlight; tear gas grenade launchers; ballistic shields, helmets and vests; gas masks; and night vision goggles, Richardson said.

Sheriff Mark Richardson said the training will help officers contend with any emergency situation in the county. Florence County Sheriff’s Capt. John Crouse was the instructor and provided the training for the Marion County officers. Richardson said he thanks Crouse and Florence County Sheriff Kenny Boone for providing the training to the county’s officers.

“This training is necessary this day and time and will help our officers better protect themselves and the citizens of Marion County,“ Richardson said, adding that more training is planned. High risk warrant service planning, court house security training and active school shooter training are some of the training planned for deputies this year.

Free People want to know:

Who paid for the training?  The Federal Government with YOUR Bailout money.  Now how is it that the Federal Government is now training YOUR local Sheriff’s for their own purposes?  Do you see the scam going on here?  This means the Sheriffs are WORKING FOR THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT and NOT YOU!!!  YOU, the US CITIZEN. 

Contact YOUR Sheriff Today and put a stop to this infiltration of the corrupt federal government at the local level!!

Chihuahuas Confront CougarDeputies to the Rescue, KTLA, June 15, 2009, Riverside County Sheriff

June 5, 2009, Colorado, Prison Planet Forum Members

JT Coyote is one of the moderators of the forum and is constant contact with Alex Jones and his staff. His house was raided by the DEA and thankfully did not turn bloody because THE LOCAL SHERIFF WARNED HIM.  JT is in Colorado.  His account here.

PPF POST:  “I asked my friend Sheriff John Minor what would’ve happened had he not known and came to warn me of what was about to happen, what would have been the standard procedure? His answer was chilling. Because I was there, the house was occupied so all exits would have been covered, the main force would have hammer-jacked open the front door and quickly entered, locked and loaded.

The look on the man’s face told the story, it was obvious that it would’ve been a horrible mistake, in this particular case it would have turned very ugly very quickly. As it turned out what was described by the realtor in the complaint that caused the warrant to be issued was fantasy, a delusion, or a fabrication… a fantasy that could very easily have gotten people killed.” (emphasis ours)

(Shalimar, FL, Okaloosa County Sheriff) Charlie Morris’ Bonus Gifts

Tom Mc Laughlin and Andrew Gant / Florida Freedom Newspapers

They’ve been labeled victims and they’ve been called crooks.

Quite possibly, both will be uncovered as state investigators take a hard look at 15 of indicted Okaloosa County Sheriff Charlie Morris’ most trusted employees.

They’re the high-ranking sworn officers, the administrators, clerks and other office workers who returned some $118,000 in cash to Morris since he began his “fictitious” bonus scam in 2007, according to a federal indictment.

A week after Morris and his administrative director Terry Adams were indicted by a grand jury, unanswered questions remain in connection to the bonuses.

Four of those who received bonuses from Morris and then gave him cash back have been fired. The others continue to work in the Sheriff’s Office.

The state attorney’s office has confirmed it will conduct its own investigation into the list.

“We’re reviewing many aspects of the Sheriff’s Office, including that one,” state attorney William “Bill” Eddins said. “Our investigation is much broader in scope than the federal investigation and includes matters in addition to the kickbacks.”

Interim Sheriff Ed Spooner has stressed that some of the employees who gave cash back to Morris were themselves victims. Documentation presented at the beginning of the scandal also makes it clear that some of them cooperated with the FBI and IRS, which led to Morris’ arrest Feb. 27. One person, sources say, was only involved in the kickbacks to help further the investigation.

But Spooner’s actions since taking over for Morris hint he also suspects some in the agency were complicit.

“There’s different degrees of complicity versus non-complicity,” Sheriff’s Maj. Larry Ashley said the day after the indictment. “There’s people on that list… who had nothing to do with it.”

Santa Cruz Sheriffs

Spotted, June 3rd, 2009 – These sheriffs armed with fully automatic assault weapons are leaving the Santa Cruz County building after the Board of Supervisors fired an Appeals Board that was exposing how the County criminals pirate property.  The Board of Supervisors had a swat team of armed thugs on standby ready to slaughter any person that stood up against the County’s criminal acts.  Clearly the criminals in government are preparing for the worst.

  1. The deputies are not carrying fully automatic assault weapons. They are H&K 9mm semi automatic firearms. Bassically riffle that shoots a handgun round. Please have your information correct.

  2. Another local Says:

    Actually, the guns you see slung on their backs are less-lethal guns…

    • freepeopleontheland Says:

      What is the purpose of these weapons? If less lethal, how would they propose to use them and why? Please share any further details you have. We desire to inform rather than to twist something for our purposes.

  3. Less lethal weapons use a bean bag style bullet. It will bruise the skin but does not penetrate. It is used for compliance in a large crowd or riot situation. There is also a pepper ball round witch shoots a paintball like object the opens on impact emitting a powder that is as effective as pepper spray. And now there is a taser round that can be shot out of a shotgun for longer range usage.
