I agree with the poster who asked the question of WHY IS THIS ONLY BEING COVERED IN THE LOCAL PAPER!? I want this on the 10 O'Clock news, and on the front page of the LA Times. Problem is, LA Times is too busy helping Obama get elected to publish real news.

Good for you, so if you did this what the he11 are you commenting on Mervyns catering to Mexican, so let it be. About being trashy, etc., you are putting to much on it you racist pig.

I've got to agree with you. When Mervyn's began to cater to the Hispanic community-with the clothing and the announcements in Spanish first, I stopped shopping there. Besides, after the Hispanics tore through the store, it was a pig sty. I decided at that time I would rather spend more money somewhere else than deal with that mess.

He's a deputy sheriff, that means he's going to be protected by the brotherhood. We will pay for his greed. He knows it and so does the dept.

Some sheriff's receive up to 90% of their salary when they retire, which means about $90,000 of taxpayers dollars (total BS in my opinion). If convicted, the judge should also take away ALL of his retirement benefits.
Several LEOs pay a portion of their salary into their retirement package, and it is invested. Upon conviction, the 'company matched' portion of their benefits may be taken away, but not their salary that earned interest. Taxpayers aren't paying for all of their benefits.

Joe Dyer is a criminal, and the City council members turned a blind eye. Hey Lujan, you should step down from being mayor, council member, etc., etc., You all rotate and have dont s-h-i-t for the city. You scum bag.

Yes, I agree with you all. I smell a rat or more like a nest of rats. I bet you all at the end they will scurry out free. When it comes to it there is a double standard when it comes to "the good old boys". Though their fun money is gone, it doesn't erase the fact that they committed a crime , a dime here a half a million there. Ssshhh! The rats are laying low until it all blows away, hoping no one will read old newspapers. Early retirements, change of stations, resignations and giving a little more in the church basket and hoping their sins will be forgiven? Well maybe God can forgive you, but I don't.

Joe Blow Taxpayers have paid $ more than enough on this case. So Cal Mama aren't you angry? The fun money is gone and no one will pay up. The benefits go to the thieves. Who can we trust? Smiling faces tell lies.

Too bad you guys wear a badge and think you rank the same as those who do protect and serve, guys who risk their lives for others. You guys serve yourselves and protect your own. Crooks don't deserve to wear the badge or get benefits. Shame on you!!!!!!!

An interesting question no one has brought up...Did HADDICK'S TOWING know and not do anything about the missing money? Or could Haddick's Towing have been apart of this conspiracy? I would not doubt it. right, Bonnie? And by the way folks, it was not 500,000 it was more like over a million bucks!!! and Sgt. Joe Dyer offered to give some money back to alleviate the punishment..the DA laughed at him. sucker!

"Dyer was allowed to retire from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department in June 2008 - a day after he was suspended without pay. He was a 29-year veteran of the department."
He retired a day before being caught? Sounds like a tip off.
His bud also got transferred before being questioned?
Dyer gets a nice retirement ($80 thou +) after a reduced sentence for a plea of no contest. Sounds like a rip off. Dyer's wife doesn't know how they paid for vacations and cars in cash? Waiting for hubby to pay for her next vacation or car while she goes to church every Sunday without her black veil. Sounds like boosting rights? Housewife of Chino is a reality show and we are paying for it with our tax dollars! Outrageous!!!!
The judge's last words were good luck, hope its better for you next time? WHAT?! If you commit a crime do you get your retirement? Why should a know it all dirty public servant of the law and a holier than thou greedy wife get off when the economy is ruining the public's income? Why is this ONLY on local newspapers?! I wish I could turn this channel off. I'm disgusted!!!!

Judge Marcus wished Dyer well upon his sentencing.
"Mr. Dyer, good luck to you," he said. "I hope things work out after this."
quoted from [email protected]
I say with his retirement he and his wife can continue to live very well or is that not enough for them? Bravo!

Stay tune to the next show!

Finally came public wrote:
Has anyone else noticed that the Captain was reassigned? What does that suggest? Also, do a little research on the La Puente City Manager, Carol Cowley, who just recently suddenly retired. Anyone want to guess why? And while we're asking questions, did anyone look into the operations Lieutenant at Industry Station? He's the guy in between the Sgt and Captain Smith. How is he clean if those above and below him are looking dirty?
If you missed this, its worth reading again, thanks for these questions. Did the judge ignore these overlook this information?
no sht

I just hope that the Industry Sheriffs patrol L.P. Park and keep an eye out for men that go there and stare at the kids playing ball, kinda freakish, but you never know why someone that has never been seen before is hanging around the park. Could be inocent. The cops may be corrupt but I hope that they keep an eye out for our children
