Why shouldn't the investigation proceed until the entire truth is revealed? Taxpayers deserve that.

Because the people who would be conducting the investigation are the people who would loose.

Suspicious that the detective working the case gets fired. Suspicious that other members of the police department benefited from the embezzlement. Don't expect a complete and just investigation when the people in charge of the investigation have an interest in its out come. A case like this is being manipulated from top down.

No shit something is suspicious! You have a board who is made up of city leaders and one of the board's main jobs is oversight of the Bureau and it's finances.

Anywhere else and those board members would be being investigated and some would be facing charges.

Now that that there is politics involved maybe someone will ask the real questions like; who on the board was responsible for oversight of finances? Why weren't accounting procedures in place to keep this from happening? Who did the accounting? Why aren't they being investigated? Why was the directors insurance allowed to lapse? Was the directors insurance allowed to lapse so that the board and the city would not have to face a real and possibly very damaging investigation conducted independently of local investigators?

Yes, there are many many questions left to be answered.

He is not unemployed. If you actually read the paper, you would know He got hired as a Detective by the Sheriff's Department almost immediately. Funny, they fired him before his 20 year tenure. They all have their heads up their butt!

He no longer works there and the Sheriff only hired him to get him to retirement. He worked there a few months now can't get a job because, unlike the sheriff's department, most places conduct a background check. So please take the time and research the facts before you automatically assume someone is intellectually inferior to you. Good day.

Try and investigte any one of the white people in farmington or the county and see what you get, nothing. It will take a while before everyone realizes that they elect uneducted and hire the same. Then look at the racial makeup in farmington and the county and compare with the employee ratio breakdown. Most obvious is the city manager and his son, where did he learn his behavior? All accepted by the other white folks to line their pockets with tax payer money.
