Get your facts straight wrote:
<quoted text>
First of all, after reading your post a few times, I have come to realize this post must be by one of the previously mentioned “Fabulous Four”. Hilton’s in Florida – Woods is too dumb to use a computer…So, I’ve narrowed it down to Bill (i.e. Donna, his wife) OR….CICARDO who as we have been told appears to be an expert on MANIPULATION . However, you ‘re not a smart as you think. The warrant was signed by the Judge, but on Friday after Cameron was finally interviewed …the warrant was then RECALLED per ultimately Robinsons order. Mr. Cicardo, I believe you all realized you had made a major mistake, but the damage was already done. The minute you alleged this against Cameron without factual information and attempted to crucify him. The damage is irreversible. Cameron knows all about this. If I were him, I would be in search of counsel or maybe even call in some well known organizations who would love to find out how his reputation has been ruined. Your detectives leaked this out to the community so fast (which you should have been able to prevent) that Cameron was a thief. I would look at the motive of which WHY this occurred. MOTIVE IS: 2 PEOPLE THAT ARE IN LINE FOR THIS POSITION….that would be Woods and Cicardo. When this information was first brought to Hilton, they were salivating and jumped to conclusions so fast…They never took into consideration that the man may have been innocent. The “CHOP LICKING” that you claim the media would be doing….was being done by YOU, Cicardo…and Woods. Knowing Cicardo, your past and the way you let things with the city get so out of control, this doesn’t surprise anyone. The media is irrelevant now, the damage has been done. Hilton has been hurt now throughout the parish. The black community can’t trust him and the white community really never did. The truth is the good people of the parish don’t like scandal . And this IS a SCANDAL.
Ultimately it is WILLIAM EARL HILTONS fault. He made the decision to hire Cameron who had a generally known bad “past” with his previous employment. In my opinion, HILTON just used Cameron---he never intended on Cameron having any authority whatsoever. When Cameron began to grow in popularity among the employees, I think Hilton saw his own popularity decreasing throughout the parish.
ONE MORE THING: IA only reacts to the cases that are given to them by the FABULOUS FOUR So, stop the IA BASHING.
MEDIA? Don’t you think it’s beyond that now?
Now we see your the one that should get your facts straight. Due to the fact. I am not even a RPSO employee. Nor do I have any family employed there. Most people on this forum use it to cut down,ridicule & belittle other people on the forum. When in fact some of us simply use to weed out selfish political agendas. And discern between what is soap opera drama,jealously,conjured, speculative theorys vs. facts,credible info. YOU SHOULD NOT REFER TO ME IN AN RIDICULING MANNER AS OF THE "FABULOUS FOUR". YOU MIGHT NEED MY VOTE NEXT ELECTION FOR THE YOU WANT TO SHERIFF. SINCE I DO NOT KNOW WHO THE CANDIDATES WILL BE.

First of all Cameron is not spotlessly clean. I’m getting a little aggrevated at his being put on this pedestal. There is a file out in the public that describes Camerons past and everybody knows what happened to him….so it’s NOT a big secret or anything. I say everybody….the law enforcement community, the political folks, and much of the general public …but when this file is spread around during the next election, EVERYBODY WILL KNOW and with his background, they are not going to want him to be 3rd in command of our Sheriff Office at all. So, what are you goin to do Hilton? Are you going to let him go? Or how will you face this? When and if you run for re election how will you address the fact that your 3rd in command was not worthy of that position? What were you thinking? Did you think this would just go away? You have to Ask yourself this question: How many people have you made happy that will stay with you, and how many people have you made mad that won’t be with you? In this particular case, there is no way to win.

If, the writer above isn’t Cicardo – it seems he tripped up when he stated the pronoun “I”….However, I will continue past this. This is a public forum stating “who do you want to be the next sheriff”... So if it IS you Mr Cicardo that wrote the above narrative, it pertains to you as well. Understand, that everyone in the department accepts public money including my nephew who is employed there and including you Cicardo. That makes you open for public opinions and discussion/ridicule if appropriate. From what I can hear is going on up there, the department deserves scrutiny.
I stop at Chandlers grocery on my way to work most mornings. So, I hear a lot of the talk around the sheriff office there… I was not a Hilton supporter until the run off. However, I think I probably messed up voting for Hilton and I will tell you why.
*Based on what I’ve read and been told.(And…knowing all the players personally involved…including the ones known as the fabulous four and including Cameron) Some, I know better than others, nevertheless I do know all the players in this situation… I think Cameron was pre-judged and I agree that it has serious racial overtones and I will explain to you why. I wasn’t familiar with the case involving Liz (Hardins’ daughter), but I recently found out about that, when one of the victims family members who happens to be white, painted my home. I put it together that it was Hardins’ daughter. I was curious at the time as to why an appropriate investigation wasn’t conducted. It seemed she was given special treatment. I know that Mr Mathews told me he went to see William, but he didn’t tell me what it was about. But now, I think maybe he helped cut a deal on her behalf. So, why then wasn’t Cameron afforded the same treatment? Instead, he was automatically assumed guilty and now has to face that public conception of his reputation which has been nearly ruined. Regardless of the past we were told he had….he was still accepted and employed there.
I’m also very upset regarding what happened on Bayou Rapides and the death of a friend. I believe it was a mess as to how it was handled. Not on the deputies part, really…but Robinson or Hilton never even showed up out there. Being they are supposed to be in charge, I think they should have been there. Shortly after that incident on the Bayou, I happened to see Bill at Chandlers. I asked him why he didn’t go. He said he was not notified, and that Woods was in charge. He agreed it did get out of hand but that Woods was in charge. I can tell you what I DO know. The people I live around that DID vote for Hilton, he will not get their votes again. They make shake his hand , smile and pat his back….but they are NOT going to vote for him again. We are still VERY upset over this.
One of the first comments on here was regarding Hilton hiring Bill and Cicardo. I recall an incident when I went to Cicardos office with the city when he was chief for some help. He pretty much just ran me out of his office because I didn’t live in the city limits. So, that alone was enough to make me regret my vote.
I talk with Lee Weatherford a lot, he’s been my friend but he was a deputy along time ago, before Wagner hired him back. Now everybody knows Lee likes to stir things up and how he is…AND I DON’T ALWAYS VOTE WITH HIM…but a lot of what he says makes sense. He told me Hilton hired Danny George. What in the world is he doing being a deputy? I can’t believe I am paying that man’s salary… Lee told me George replaced him. At least Lee had a law enforcement background. What’s George got? According to Lee George has made everybody mad around Hiltons back yard. Lee also told me Hilton’s all up in the District Attorney’s race openly supporting Terrell. Doesn’t he think he needs to get a grip on his own job and quit trying to manipulate the entire parish political scene …playing games with people?

One more thing Lee told me that upsets me. Now, I’ve been knowing the Cooper family for a long time and YOU CAN’T MAKE THEM HAPPY! EVERYBODY out here knows you can’t make them happy. That boy is runnin around out here stirring up more trouble for Hilton than he can imagine. I know Chuck regrets the day he messed with that boy. I voted for Chuck because of his daddy. But, I told him when he got tied up with the Coopers, I was out. Now Hilton has promoted him!.I think Hilton has lost every bit of back bone he ever had…
You know we’ve been trying to get a sub station out here forever. Hilton’s put one everywhere but here!. I don’t like the mess our Country is in and I don’t like the way Rapides Parish is headed. I may not be able to do anything about the condition of our Country, but I can get the word out in this parish and do something about the condition of the Rapides Parish Sheriff Office.

Ho Ho Ho, is it a surprise that Hilton is a back stabber? Is it a surprise that Robinson is dumb as a rat. Did Cicardo sober up long enough to show up on the job everyday? What about Wood? Does he still have the booster chair at his desk. I told you so ,they are all rejects and a disgrace to RPSO. Hope Robinson don't get mad and show his real intelligence again. A Leopards spots will never change places. Wonder if Hilton and Robinson would agree? Yall enjoy your so called Sheriff and all his dummy hires. As for Cameron, he is the only one up there that has any respect.

How can WEH continue to show his face. He once was a good sheriff. Now he is just a joke. He has no control and thinks he is above the law. He continues to let his deputies break the law or certain deputies are allowed. This time it won't be squashed. He will be held responsible.
He did not become a joke overnight. He is not above the law in Alaska. They consider him to be an outlaw.

Robinson had nothing to do with Cameron. that was all wood and cicardo. I don't approve of det. investigating a public blog. I think that's a fed offense that could get people in trouble. having billingsley pre -maturely type a letter of termination and having Davidson sign a warrant shows a lack of respect for any employee.liz vs Cameron was a joke. disappointed with WE HILON.

Anyone can be sued at any time for any thing. Slander is one thing, but everything I've seen in the blog appears to be true so far. So, how can you claim slander if it's the truth? There's probably ten thousand wild bill's in America, so I guess they will all be trying to file suit. Let me just break this down for you and your boy Hilton...RENTING INMATES FROM WORK RELEASE is ABSOLUTELY and I repeat ABSOLUTELY against the law. You need to go back and read that book on your desk that says---REVISED STATUTES. It is absolutely against the law for any Sheriff, Warden, Chief or head of any facility where work release inmates are housed at to RENT INMATES. Historically that is exactly what has put Sheriffs in jail!(Messing around with Inmates)...I knew a MAYOR once that thought he was untouchable...He's in FLORIDA right now behind FENCES. Check this out: All that hog skinning, hog killing, and hog eating that you are using the inmate labor to get rid of Hiltons Hog Problem on his private property....ILLEGAL... What about the Hog Skinning Equipment you have at the Range....WHAT'S ALL THAT DOING THERE??
If you think for one minute that people in this parish are too afraid of the two of you that they wouldn't sign a complaint and sign it over to an outside agency---think again? You don't need to worry about slander, you need to worry about WHEN this is going to happen. I plan on signing that complaint myself - but when the time is right. See, these things that have records, never go away. And it's when you go to trying to hide the records you get in even deeper trouble. Now, I'm not blaming everything on you Wild Bill..I know you're not very smart and you didn't go back and check those laws. However, you don't know how many photos, statements from inmates...have already been taken. The biggest thing you and your boss have to worry about is loyalty. Or should I say LACK of LOYALTY.

I found out some new info concerning The Fantastic Four " SHERIFF HILTON, his adopted son MARK WOODS, PLAYBOY BILL ROBINSON, an TOMMY coward CICARDO". Is there a Racial problem at RPSO? Well what I mean is Im confused with the way things are handled concerning WHITE an BLACK employees. Bobby Cameron had his name trashed, I mean put out there for all the world to see and make opinions of. He was found guilty, warrant signed, termination papers typed up, and then out of nowhere it was found that a mistake was made at the bank. A bank employee had accidently put flower fund money in two equal amounts in Bobby Cameron's children accounts. I guess its possible. Now on the White side of the fence. Deputy Thomas Wayne Belgard a big, strong, and very powerful man, who is known all over the parish as a tough fighter weighing in at 280lbs. While in uniform beat an old man out there in Deville to the point he had to go to the hospital for his injuries. Belgard was suspended 1 day with pay at the time of the crime. However a couple of weeks ago when he pled guilty to beating the 140 lb. 74 yr. old man, he resigned the RPSO with no charges brought against him. But Major Mark Woods told Belgard to go home and stay out of sight for a few months and he would hire him back at the Sheriff's Office. In the meantime William Earl hired Belgard's wife in the clerical dept the very next day. Deputy Hamilton, who was arrested in Mississippi an had to serve jail time for illegal activities, was allowed to resign, go to jail, and then came back and they rehired him at the Sheriff's Office. Seems to me that Cameron was treated much worse than the 2 white boys who should have both been fired. I mean the old man in Deville who was beaten to a pulp was not even under arrest. How can the Sheriff justify his Deputy beating an old sick man this way when he was not even under arrest. I guess when you can play music at the GOOD OL BOYS CLUB parties, an hook old buddy Mark up with your left over women anything is possible. Bobby were still with you buddy, but watch what kind of deal you make with Hilton, you know he cant be trusted. And for the Deputy who resigned and they hired his wife in the clerical dept. keep your eye open. You know Playboy Bill is up there hunting new women. He's tired of the Chaplans wife, the dethroned Major from Corrections Carla something, an a few others. For the good Deputies who aren't members of the Mexican Fishing an [email protected]@ing Association hang in there guys help is on the way.

I know all about what the previous poster is saying. What I wonder is if William Earl knows how quick he's becoming the laughing stock of the parish. Funny thing is, the folks who voted for Wagner, are now running around like Hilton's best buds.(fence riders who like to throw money but when it comes down to an election have proven they can’t get the vote out) And the ones who loyally stuck with Hilton...,(who DID get the vote out) he's messed over so bad - they've all jumped off his wagon and aren’t for Hilton at all now!. I couldn't believe he hired Cicardo who has hated him throughout his entire law enforcement career, AND hired Robinson back!!(who basically had Nothing to bring to the table and that's EXACTLY what he does ...NOTHING...) It’s not a surprise that his department is such a mess. These guys have more enemies than they have friends.
The fact that Hilton is getting very chummy with a well known criminal element who has been throwing alot of social functions and a LOT of money his way, is another concern of mine. Why would the Sheriff of the Parish want to be so tied in to a man who has done prison time for attempted murder? Look, I don't care what they do on their private time, but when my tax dollars are paying the salary, i expect employees of the Rapides Parish Sheriff Department (from the lowest paid to the highest paid) to behave within the law at the very least and to respect the public. And I would like to ask Hilton to quit hiring multiple family members. It's not the citizens of Rapides Parish duty to manage households and this is what that place is turning in to. Sure I'll hire ya!...and if you mess up, don't worry...we'll just hire your kids or your grandkids... or your wife...
And come on now...READ YOUR LAW BOOK!! It doesn't take a brain surgeon to see the deal with the inmates, the range and the hogs is breaking the law. Hey, and the person who said "Help is on the Way"...I remember Hilton using this same phrase against Wagner...I bet Cameron was wonderin where his help was when they didn't even give him a chance to defend himself before issuing that warrant.
What you have here is a clear case of what i call Hot doggin. I figure it'll last a couple more years then Hilton will try to get his old friends back. But, i don't believe they'll fall for it again ...

Someone please tell the sergeants there is a policy and procedures book! My understanding its blue not green. everything in the blue book superseds the green book. so before you use the write up book you should read the latest policy and procedures. Until next time, my hats off to the brave and beautiful RPSO!
