I was hoping to find someone else had already posted something regarding this, but I wasn't that lucky.

As we all know the FDLE released its Annual Performance Reports this past week and I found myself shell shocked. I couldn't believe what I read.

In Washington County the crime rate has increased a total of 46%. I can't believe this. Mr. Bobby Haddock was indeed reelected this past year, but what has he done? When I voted for him, I believe that his main goal was to keep crime off the streets, but it looks to me like he failed. I just can't fathom what it would take to be able to campaign, and reach out to the people that is currently a citizen of Washington County.

We need a change. This has got to stop, Chipley is the highest increased percentage in change and that is unacceptable.

I wished that the Chipley Bugle would have covered this story and spoke with Mr. Haddock, but I failed to see where they have.

WJHG covered the story on Monday night here is there link.( http://www.wjhg.com/home/headlines/Florida_cr... )

Lack of jobs is definitely a part of the problem, and that problem originates in Washington DC where the money flow is controlled. The economy is definitely a roller coaster ride. Write your Congressman or woman and let them know that if they intend to stay in office, then they better do something about the economy and about the Job Market. If enough people complain, then they will get the picture.

What you have failed to see is that the crimes being reported in recent months and years were here before. The reason the crime rates "appeared" so low in Washington County was because the LAW here did NOTHING about it. Now, law enforcement is stepping up and trying to rid of of these diseased people who cook and sell meth to our kids and who are involved in all this criminal activity that they have been involved in for years and it makes the cops look bad. The crime rates have not escalated! The law is simply just now stepping up and doing something about it. We see drug related arrests on a regular basis but these people are not new to the drugs. They have been using for years! Give the cops some credit. It took them long enough, I agree. But they are now working on it. Law enforcement were either too blind or too stupid to see it in the past. In Washington County the law would actually sy there was no drug problem here and that we were no where as bad as Holmes County. What a joke!
Running for Mayor

Wausau is the perfect place where a fool can run for office and win. Nobody cares or wants to step up to the plate to get a decent city official. So far the Mayor and Firechief have done wrong and they don't even get reprimended... I blame the town
folks for doing nothing.

You my friend have hit the nail on the head. What we need to see is the drastic rise that the report shows. We all know that crime did not go up that much and that fast here in Washington County. What we do know is that more drug arrest have been made and more crimes that resulted from those arrest like burglaries, Thefts, etc. Now that the Sheriff's Office is weighing in on the drugs and problems there is this big increase in crime. Keep it up Sheriff's Office you are doing the job and it is showing!!

Most of the reports, even in the county, include assistance from the Chipley Police. The Chipley PD seem to be very involved in cases all over the county.

Great job to the Chipley PD, sorry I overlooked them.
drug funding

Fort Walton Beach, FL

i dont even want to hear this crap. crime rate is high for one reason...haddocks budget. you can throw the city in there too, but they get to increase thier drug task force funding by the number of busts they make. if drug control didnt supply a nice check, they wouldnt give a damn. this is still the same county that is and always will be poor. haddock just found a way to fund his dept of young smart mouth flunkies. i wont include all the guys into that(some are very good), but to blame the crime rate increase on any other person than haddock himself is ridiculous.

the law itself has always had a vested interest in drug trade. from the days of the reagan admin until now, drugs have funded many government operations. its land of the free.....as long as you do what your told. haddock and his "drug thugs" are no better than a dealer on the street corner. they bust em for the money and the headlines, not for the right reasons...hell, there are several cops who wont even turn in the evidence on "select busts". just dissapppears after the suspect is processed.

just pay attention to the cars..the stickers of all the new stuff and supplies they get give them away. drug task force equippment kickbacks from the state etc., and they flash it right in your face. just look and ask, you will find out.

All very good and verifiable points, "drug funding". I am all for busting drug dealers and feel that it is a thing that should be done. On the other hand, because the police (LEO's) are 'servants' to and protectors of the citizenry, they too must be held accountable .... accountable for everything that is seized in a 'drug bust'. The money confiscated, property that is auctioned off, and any other proceeds from the 'drug bust' should be turned back to the citizenry, because it is the citizenry that pays the taxes that support the activities of those "drug busters": That funding should not be used to line the pockets of those with a vested occupational vested interest (unless of course you desire to see a total Police State where eventually, the officers of such a state can arbitrarily take anything from your private possession and use those takings for their own pleasure; all under the name and alleged authority of some law which has been allegedly violated.) They already get paid to do a job at your expense.

noriaga(sp), escobar, bin laden, hussien and che guevera. what do they all have in common? at one time all were in good standing with american government. either by weapons deals or drug trade...all had economic value to our government...until we didnt need them anymore. isnt it funny if you look at all these figures and see how they flourished in their own regimes for years, and then were hunted down like dogs in the end.

i say this for a specific reason. our form of government is actually notorious for betrayal to the indigenous. at the local level its even worse. big shot drug cartel moving by the name of the green suits, badge and a gun...only to boast a zero tolerance while they turn their back on the "good ol boys" who are actually growing and pushing the dope. haddock is indeed a dope man...by way of exploiting the people to fund his business. im not saying haddocks operation is similar to those aforementioned, but one day the govenment might turn on him as well. id say "protect and serve" doesnt work as a slogan for a policing dept. whose sole agenda is drug control. more like, "COLLECT AND RE-DISTRIBUTE BY WAY OF INTERNAL FUNDING"

fun fact: the amount of americans incarcerated in the prison system of the u.s. has doubled since 1985. anyone know what went into action in that time??? give you a hint..nancy reagan had her name all over it.

Distribution Center off I 10, was not kept out by Washington, instead it was done by our local commissioners. Wish you would not babble so much on here, once before you have been told that you are a religious fanatic, wonder what else you are fanatic about? Blogs in print?

Are you suggesting that our "local commissioners" are responsible for the "money flow"? Show where my statement(s) are incorrect. Do you know anything about 'corporate structure'? Do you have any knowledge regarding the true nature of this government? Do you even acknowledge that this government is nothing more than a giant 'corporation' operating under 'corporate law'?

Normally speaking, when someone such as yourself, places such derisive comments on a public forum without offering proof of what you say it is because you have a vested interest in the subject matter at hand and are afraid that if too many people catch on to what is being said, you will suffer a loss due to the advancement in learning by the other people. In other words, your gain is in the maintenance of the status quo.

The above paragraph seemingly identifies your 'fanaticism'.
