Mascotte is broke and should dissolve
Friday's column took at look at the turmoil in the department, which has a less-than-stellar reputation in Central Florida law-enforcement circles.

We were supposed to have outlawed this kind of language years ago. The Orlando Sentinel has been bankrupt for years and they are still paying her to spout her venom. And run interference for her friend “the sheriff.”
Funny thing she seems to have a problem with the new city manager chosing as chief a fellow with a background in corrections who was a sergeant in the department. Within five months of Chief Rolando Banasco's appointment, four white officers, including had lost their jobs.
First of all Lauren Ritchie complains about the chief being hired because he basically is “a fellow with a background in corrections.” Why is she concerned about that when her friend “the sheriff’ only had a background in corrections right up to the day he was appointed sheriff of Lake County in October 2006? Admittedly he got cross trained corrections/ law enforcement in 1998 but never worked one minute as a lawful certified police officer. But that’s OK because he is her friend.
Is the 60% hispanic population of Mascotte as well as the entire law abiding population supposed to forget that Sheriff Borders was under constant watch by the ACLU for several years for profiling hispanics? Are we supposed to forget that right now while his running for reelection he reminds everyone on his campaign website that Lake County is one of a few in Florida deporting illegal aliens from our local jail, please share our page on yours to help us increase our "likes" and spread our message!
Remember no matter your stand on any issues, those who fail to abide by the laws of the land including the sheriff or any other officials is a criminal of the worst kind by denying persons of all race and creeds the right to justice as provided by the law. If someone like Gary Borders breaks the laws and makes illegal arrests of anyone eventually every last person will be subject to the same abuse of the legal system.
It has long been obvious that Lauren Ritchie is nothing more than a tool of the culture of corruption that permeates Lake County and it’s government agencies.
It is up to the people of Mascotte to decide their future. Unbeknown to her because of her incompetence, ignorance and communist leanings evidenced by her orders to cease and desist and begin talking about a take over by Lake County fire and her friend “the sheriff” many small towns and cities were force into bankruptcy during the great depression. Most survived and rebounded to become prosperous small towns and cities.
No one in their right mind would want to give up their own police department and turn it over to Gary Borders and his misfits who actually have far more internal problems than all Lake County police departments combined. It just that Borders and his band of misfits has most of the local media in their pockets and the truth about LCSO and its internal shenanigans is never told by lamestream media outlets.
Lauren Ritchie is constantly trying to destroy one police department after another in hopes she can influence the towns or cities to turn their departments over the sheriff’s office. Since Lake County BCC is demanding budget cuts she is out drumming up business for more revenue. The more money Gary Borders gets the more he needs.
The best thing that might come from all of Ritchie’s attacks against not only the Hispanic population of Mascotte but all Hispanics as a whole in Lake County is. The August 14m 2012 sheriff’s election is open to all registered voters including democrats. Every last voter in Lake County cab vote on that date. If you don’t like the fact that she is trying to destroy Mascotte and close your police department you can vote for another candidate for sheriff on that date.
On the other hand if you want to be manipulated my a card carrying member of the communist party just give them your town and take all of your orders from then on from Lauren Ritchie aka Lake County’s Nancy Pelosi and her comrades just sign up for their services.
