If any officers of the department have any questions as to who was bad-mouthed on the assesment please feel free to come see me. I have the entire hour and fifteen minutes on tape and will be glad to let you hear for yourself what went on and how long the assesment lasted. To "who ever" started the rumor that my assesment was cut short, you may also hear the tape and just how it ended.
Who are you, 603? In the assesment, a question was asked of the interviewing officer. This question basically asked for the officer's opinion of other officers who had applied for the promotions. I know of one officer who spoke the TRUTH, just as they were asked, and essentially got black-balled for it. This happens to be one of the best officers on the force and is obviously being discriminated against. Before anyone says anything about my comment here, you should know that the officer I am speaking about does not even know that I am aware of what happened, so they did not give me their input or perception of things. Nothing of what I have said has been slanted by anyone with "ulterior motives". I am basing my comments on the truth and my observations over much time.

Here is my OPINION on something else regarding the assesment: a couple of the people who received promotions did not deserve them as much as some who were overlooked. It is so obvious that "the good ol' boys'" ghosts still haunt the police dept. I had hoped that died when one of them left in retirement and we got a younger generation Chief. I guess that infection just doesn't clear up as long as the older guys keep "molding" and mentoring the younger ones!

Speaking of Henson, I went to Myrtle Beach a couple weeks ago and we met a family who used to live here. They were here when he was sherriff. We were talking about old times and happenings when I was asked how things were going along with the recovery from the flood. This led to a discussion about Henson. The family wanted to know how he was and said they had heard how ill he had been. They had nice things to say about his conduct during the flood, but said they heard he had also done some questionable things. They mentioned something that had been circulating here.

Anyway, I was almost embarassed that a family all those miles away had heard something like that. Oh well, I wish him well.......

I think you just need to read the paper and look at the monthly report. The EPD answers more calls and most are always serious that's why they are usually called! They have to get there fast when it is a serious call and a lot of the time they will get half the info. They will get a call that says a subject has a gun and the address and that is it. They can't determine how serious it is until they get there therefore they will respond faster than if it were just an alarm call or something. If you do your job to move out of the way it lets them do theirs.

A cop was on his horse waiting to cross the street when a little girl on her new shiny bike stopped beside him.
"Nice bike," the cop said. "Did Santa bring it to you?"
"Yep," the little girl said, "he sure did!"
The cop looked the bike over and handed the girl a $5 ticket for a safety violation and said, "Next year tell Santa to put a reflector light on the back of it."
The young girl looked up at the cop and said, "Nice horse you've got there sir. Did Santa bring it to you?"
"Yes, he sure did," chuckled the cop.
The little girl looked up at the cop and said, "Next year tell Santa the dick goes underneath the horse... not on top

True Cop Story

This is the best cop story of the year, decade and probably the century. A Elizabethton, TN, cop purchased a box of
very rare and expensive cigars then insured them against fire among other things. Within a month having smoked his entire
stockpile of these great cigars and without yet having made even his first premium payment on the policy, the cop filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the cop stated the cigars were lost "in series of small fires." The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason: that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion. The cop sued....and won! In delivering the ruling the judge agreed with the insurance company that the claim was frivolous. The Judge stated nevertheless, that the cop held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also
guaranteed that it would insure them against fire, without defining what is
considered to be unacceptable fire," and was obligated to pay the claim. Rather than endure lengthy and costly appeal process, the insurance company accepted
the ruling and paid $15,000.00 to the cop for his loss of the rare cigars
lost in the "fires."

NOW FOR THE BEST PART... After the cop cashed the check, the insurance company had him arrested on 24 counts of ARSON!!!! With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against
him, the cop was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and Was sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000.00 fine.

This is a true story and was the 1st place winner in the recent Criminal Cop Award Contest.

ONLY IN AMERICA!

I'd like to know what you do for a living. If you don't get into truble or make stupid decisions you don't ever have to see or hear from the police. I'm sure the only reason you have a problem with them if because you stay in trouble and that is your choice, people like you get on their nerves because they always have to deal with you. Just be a normal citizen and you don't have see them.

OK gotta stop laughing now, but on a serious note, there actually are reflector lights made for both horse and rider as a safety deal. :)

Yes, we do have a new police chief, he is a very intelligent man that knows what he wants and how to get it. He is using EPD for a stepping stone to greater things, and that is fine. However, he will use whomever he needs to step on to get there. He is butt kisser and and has morals not becoming to a gentleman or officer.Although he has found the "Lord" now, I believe it is to serve his on purposes. He is a woman chaser and because of his charisma , has no problem in that category. I feel very sorry for his wife, just as his previous wife , because he ran around on her all over town. He is a user and I'm sure he has a game plan. No one is safe if he wants to walk on them for his on purpose. He is a Jekel and Hyde,make no mistake, if you get on his bad list, you are sunk. His officers that are in his "light" love him now, but let one of them make a mistake and they will be turned ove to the wolves. Just sit back and watch.

I agree with "Howdy." Just exactly are you in the know, anyway? Are you speaking from experience or jealousy? I've known the chief for alot of years and have never known him to be anything but honest and fair. Business is business and personal is personal. Just as any good manager should be. You do your job and do it properly, you should have nothing to worry about. If you screw up, then should you not be punished? Sounds like you are in the mindset of so many others. You want to blame someone else for your actions and not take the responsibility. As far as him stepping on people to get to where he wants to be, stay out of the way and you won't get stepped on. At least he doesn't allow drug addicts to continue to work and put a huge liability on everyone such as a certain Walt Pierce at 911.
