THE FACT MAN

Cedartown, GA

#1 Jan 19, 2013
Does any one in Polk County know what happened to the sheriff dept. drug dog? I have heard rummons that it was sold to an ex-sheriff employee. I also heard that this person purchased $1500.00 of dog food for the dog on taxpayer account 3 days before he left the dept. I believe that the taxpayers of Polk County paid over $8000.00 for this dog.

If you knew what you were talking about you wouldn't post this crap on here but of course you want to keep this stuff stirred up so let me fill the good folks in on the truth.... the dog was purchased by his handler legally... and the money spent for the dog food was spent with donation and or drug seized monies..... as was the initial monies to first purchase the dog when the SO got him... NO MONIES came from the tax payers pockets for the dog..... ask the commissioners office... its ALL PUBLIC RECORD PEOPLE! So before the good people, the tax payers, start believing everything, please go see for yourself..... SMH!

Seized drug monies ARE public funds you moron. Why would you spend public funds for dog food for a dog that is privately owned? GBI should look into this.

Boy , why did you get so upset? I just asked a few questions. If you say the handler purchased the dog then why was he required to pay for the dog when he left the sheriff dept? Could it be maybe you are the one that got the dog or maybe you are an ex-employee of the sheriff dept.If money from drugs money, then it county money. But why $1500.00 for a dog not use for by the county.

hilarious...the 'fact man' has to ask on a chatboard about something...if you're the 'fact' man, why bother asking? wouldn't you have 'the facts' first?
what's so immature about your intial post is that you actually say the old, tired "...i HEARD..., i HERAD". THEN, you have audacity, based on what you "heard", thet you "believe" the taxpayer paid over 8K...".
do you always try to pass of heresay as a true means of determing fact from fiction?
you are definitely a pot-stirrer...ex-county commissioner is more correct.

Haven't heard from you in a while.Hope you had a Merry Christmas and a happy new year.My comment about an ex-employee of the sheriff dept buying the dog was true. He paid $900 for the drug dog when he left the sheriff dept.Why was he able to spent drug money or donation to buy $1500.00 for food for this dog three day before he left the dept? I also agree that if he was the handler of this dog that he should have been able to buy this dog at a price set by the commissioners.

So you think Polk County citizens don't need to know the reason LOL

Is it such a secret it can't be told?

I simply think there are things that are much more important than whether or not a handler bought the dog, such as the corruption and nepotism that is so prevalent in this county.

Personally, I think we should be more concerned with the fact that the department didn't keep the dog and find another handler. With the outrageous rampant drug use in Polk County, one would think they'd want to keep him. Perhaps the county will 'lease' the dog? It's done all the time all around the country. At least they didn't turn him over to Animal Control to be put down.

Well that's what I was thinking. Why would they get rid of it. So the handler left.

Someone should look into where the funds actually came from and why they were spent for two years worth of food for a dog that no longer belongs to a government entity. Here's the other question, is the dog's handler working at or looking for work using that dog as a police dog?

The new administration shouldn't worry about the dog... they didn't want the dog or its handler bc it was "duplication of services"..... the handler was handed his pink slip.. as far as the donated funds being used on the dog, it was donated FOR the dog therefor used FOR the dog... the dog was retired out for medical reasons.... everything was handled legally thru a lawyer...its just the same ppl trying to stir up trouble instead of doing the job they were eleted to do.....

I'm not trying to stir any trouble. Reading these posts someone claimed that the money spent to buy years of food was both donated AND seized. Seized is not private funds. If that's true, it needs to be looked into.
Also, if the dog was "retired" via a lawyer and now the same dog is being shopped to departments for patrol, that would be an issue also.

Not saying any of it's true, but my concern does not subside because you tell me everything is legit. If an open records request found that seized funds purchased food for a dog that they knew would not be governmental in a week or two, that would be a big deal.

Since the dog dedicated his best years to the service of the county shouldn't he deserve some kind of pension? 1500 is just a pittance of what the owner, whom I do not know, will pay to care for the retired canine deputy throughout his retired years. Cheers to the man who stands by his dog!

Great comment. How many years did this dog spend with Polk County?

If the drug dog was forced to work years with some of the sheriff dept employees who I know, before retirement, the dog deserves a gold watch with diamonds.
