I want your name on the ballot! Guess is to honest and fair minded and would not help your buddy cover up the way you would. He would actually find out what the truth is before judging, particularly when the truth is right in front of his face like it has been for you. And unlike you he wouldnt be blinded by a badge and the promise of the possibility to have a ticket or two swept under the rug.
He was raised with morals, something you are a stranger to. He was raised to believe in the truth, something you hide from.
He wouldnt fall for tits and tears over the evidence like his lawyer said the likes of you would do.
You would make a much better sheriff.

I don't doubt that Dan is a great guy but we need a sheriff's department that would do more to clean up our fair cities like Altoona and Buffalo. Drugs are running rampid over here and it seems we never see the sheriffs department trying to do anything about it. I am a firm believer that if you have a sheriff that is strong on enforcement then his deputies will follow him anywhere so I have to believe that he isn't a strong leader. And I am not talking about stepping up enforcement just for a re-election...I mean all the time...throughout their whole term. I mean how come I hear the Montgomery County Sheriff out helping his guys all the time. You never hear Dan out after dark helping his deputies clean up some of this stuff. I think a change is due, we need a working sheriff, not a politician.

Why should Mr. Bath get out there after dark when he has Reyes to happily do all the dirty work? After all Mr. Bath may not be so good as to recognize a camp light and coffee cup hidden in camping gear as being a meth lab the Reyes did! Mr. Bath wouldnt know how to work with a meth head to set up an innocent person to put a snitch back on the streets the way Reyes did! Oh wait, they screwed THAT one up but his snitch got out for a short time. The snitch screwed up when he started threatening underage girls with a knife and then beat up his family and went back to jail within months tho so we cant blame Reyes for that, can we?

Ok I get it... you don't like Reyes but what does that have to do with my post about the sheriff's department? He doesn't work for them. I know, I know, he use to but doesn't now. I must say your hook up with Reyes and "setting up an innocent person" is haunting you. Everything you say is how he set someone up and how he let someone out of jail. It's amazing how Reyes single handedly did this all by himself and NO ONE ELSE had anything to do with it. I get it (even though it didn't happen). But that has nothing to do with being a good leader. I didn't say anything about wanting Dan to come out and idenify Meth Labs...you and I both know that's not going to happen. I'm talking about WHEN his guys do work them where is he at? He should be there making sure they have the things they need, showing them "hey guys, I really am here to support you and back you up." But no you never here him showing support to his own guys. I guess if I had a boss that didn't care then neither would I. But where does that leave the citizens of the county??? I can tell ya where it leaves them...putting up with all the crazies.

Hi there, below is the message she sent me, good luck!

hey... none of them r "man enuf" to talk to me like they r "something" but who cares...not me. ur cousin, or what not pulled a gun on me n my kids yet u all think im lying and waS fucking a cop...Wrong but wtfe....its the truth so go non and kill us for ur fucked up family idc anymore. however if u do the cops WILL know where to look...;)

__________
After going into our friends list on facebook Stacy IMed my brother from ME with this post. The only gun was the one Reyes held on guess while putting his set up into action. Her story has changed...just a little and NO ONE threatened to kill her least of all my brother who lives 1300 miles away. GEE can you figure why we wont talk to her?

__________
From the post 'Officer Reyes'
No one said it was singlehandedly, in fact quite the opposite.
Looks to me like she is admitting that it did happen! And then she tried to make it sound as if HE had threatened her and was going to kill her and her kids. He had no idea who she even was until he used her profile and then called us. THEN she tried to deny that she had written it.
She called dispatch 2x in 1/2 hr with the same complaint. A town officer showed up between the calls and found no one...
Now you claim with such certainty that it didnt happen so vote Reyes as your sheriff.
I, on the other hand, have to more or less agree with point as far as Dan Bath is concerned. He should be able to trust his officers enough to not have to babysit them.

I answer:Proof that people like you are as stupid as his lawyer said.
I question:What are you getting for all the support?
Now I already apologized for the fact that I was was stupid enough to think his lawyer was wrong, what more do you want?

Ok I get that the sheriff don't have to be out with his guys all the time but sometimes it wouldn't hurt. I think having the "boss" out sometimes keeps the guys motivated. It's not a matter of trust or that the guys cannot do the job, I think that if he comes out sometimes he could get some of them to concentrate on our little town of Altoona. Alot moving around over here. HMMM??? So I guess no one has any ideas who might run in 2012...besides Dan? Just curious.

They should have to pass an obstacle course first before running for office. It's only fair to have capable officers working for us, right?

Chosen: If that were the case then he would have to figure out how to be in Neody and Fredonia at the same time. There is just as much moving around these towns as is in Altoona. And then there are the county areas, kinda hard for one man to be in so many places at once. Not being a smartass, just looking at the reality.
obstacle: Your boy toy sure wouldnt pass! And yes I am being a smartass!

What are you talking about? Being in these places at the same time? That don't make any sense. Besides Fredonia and Neodesha does have cops in their towns. Let them police it. I know that they are to patrol the county as well but these smaller towns are also their responsibility. No one is asking him to be in many places at once. I'm just saying to GET OUT AND HELP!!! It is his job, when you get down to the beans of it, to protect life and property. So why would you not monitor what kind of deputies you have and are they getting the job done properly and effectively? It also still doesn't change the fact that Altoona and Buffalo, to name just a few small towns, go untouched and are like the wild west with alot of people. But you always hear deputies in Fredonia everytime the city police get into something, especially at night. If the cat's away the mice will play

If hes gonna be out there for 1 area then he should be out there for the rest. If Altoona has no PD then that puts them in the same position as county. No consistant PD. I spend a lot of time in Altoona, I was there when Harpers got robbed not to long ago. The PD did a good job of being there in a timely manner. They didnt take any longer than a town cop would. And they were quite thorough about getting the word that an armed robber was in the area to the people living in the area where he was last seen.
Oddly enough I was rather impressed with how they dealt with that. It may not be that way all the time, but then again I
STILL BELIEVE IN THE PERFECT WORLD OF UNICORNS!!
Anyway, like I said, I spend a lot of time in Altoona area, and I do see them patroling the area quite a bit. Sometimes I see more of them than I see of town cops in Neody or Fredonia, sometimes I see more of Neody and Fredonia cops than I do them.
If the sheriff should have to have faith enough in his PDs to not have to babysit them, then he should have the same faith in his deputies. The biggest difference is that the deputies have a lot more ground to cover.
I will say that the sheriff should get out there a little more often, maybe cover for someone occasionally or even just ride along. But then he is no different than a supervisor in a factory, more of a figurehead than a worker.
