obviously they looked at his work history and not his age when they made promotions, too often public servants believe they are "entitled" to promotions just because they show up to work(most of the time)

Promotions are based on who you know, period. Cosello is the biggest steriod abuser I've ever met.He has a history of problems with both inmates and staff. Education, hard work? If you don't kiss the right butt, donate enough money most likely you won't go far.

Look with Sly Guy, hand him a fin and u get a promo.It doesn't surprise me that one of GUYS GUYS would degrade a officer for being old.
Their Mentor Sheriff Glodis makes fun of 80 yr old ladies, homosexuals & constantly makes racist jokes. I'm not surprised that they are getting sued.

there is always more to a story that meets the eye; working for verizon i was discriminated against for not my age but my nationality! it was a horrible experience for me and being a union member the manager has the upper hand as far as suspending you for insubordination. you can have all the grievances you want and all it does it make it a tougher position for yourself for complaining in the first place it is a no win situation. as far as sick leave; i myself being in my fifties was never out of work until put in a stressful situation as i myself was and prescribed mild anxiety meds. how awful to have to work in a place as this man is; i know how he feels!

This article is a great example of what is wrong with the Sheriffs office. For too many years the Worcester County Sheriffs office has been full of nepotism and patronage. Promotions are not given on what you know but who you know. (I don't know the guard personally but I am going by previous news stories) For too long this office has been abused, this last time by a politician who was only looking for a stepping stone to move up the ladder. In the meantime, the jail is falling down and my tax dollars are wasted.

so there is no confusion, Turco is the ulimate hack, Martin I'm sure was promoted in part because he was union president and they wanted him to keep his mouth shut.
