So you call DOJ to investigate a lonely deputy, but you refused to have DOJ investigate the Dinius or Garzoli case. Again, what's good for the goose is not good for the gander.
Mitchell's payback to Morshed for filing the EEOC complaint----and we still haven't heard the results have we? Nope, Mitchell refuses to release it, it would hurt his campaign for re-election wouldn't it?

Record Bee why couldn't you request it now? People have a right to know the results of the EEOC Report.

There is a difference between whistle-blowing and releasing privileged information. A judge signed off on a search warrant, so presumably there is probable cause to believe that a crime was committed.
so tell us what was given as to the reason for the search warrant?

OK, so we KNOW perdock illegally accessed the RIMS reports several times and then lied about it under oath-and got away with it, now Moreshed shares RIMS data on the web and it's a full-blown DOJ investigation? And NOW mitchell is cracking-down on the sexual hanky-panky after it's been going on for YEARS? Hmmmm.
It is hard to find any consistency with Sheriff Mitchell. Can he answer why the turn over to the DOJ with Morshed and NOT turning over to the DOJ when Perdock accessed the RIM reports when he told not to? This was substaniated in the Dinius trial. It just proves again that he protected Perdock and appears to still be protecting him.

The reason it is this way is because only the citizen is asking. All that should, are looking the other way.

How come Rivero hasn't been fired then? The short answer is that Rivero is in the same club. Rivero is just as guilty in covering up things as Mitchell. Where was Rivero during the Dinius cover-up? Rivero makes a big splash on TV, but it is about things that didn't relate to Dinius. Just another GOB!! Things will not change under Rivero, unless you call the mass exodus of the good Deputies heading for the hills change.
Hey GOB trying to keep your job eh? Rivero isn't even in the same class, he's wants change, he's for the people, he wants the cronies gone. Big difference between closing your eyes and taking a stand.
Rivero for sheriff.

Remember Morshed testified at the Dinius trial; that PAS equipment hadn't been calibrated for over a year....front page stuff; that is what Mitchell is really going after. Morshed told the truth and Mitchell wants to hang him over it..Made Mitchell look real bad.
Kudos to Morshed the only one who wanted people to know the truth. Now Mitchell calls in DOJ; Gee did someone die? Mitchell needs to find a new cause;and a new line of work. Lake County doesn't want you here any longer.

We are curious, how did you become so ignorant. Look at the shape this sheriff department is in, and you would support this mess. You sir are a joke. Do us all a favor move out of the county, and until you can figure out right from wrong, having people like you in this county is scary, and exactly why this corrupt sheriff has been able to survive so long. What a shill.
Go to sheriffmitchellwatch.blogspot.com
For the truth and the citizens communicating with each other trying to stop this corruption.
Struck a nerve,eh? What's the matter, if we don't go with your flow, we are called names. Sounds to me you are just as bad as Mitchell. I have never voted for Mitchell and never would, so don't blame me for his election. Just because I have an opinion that is different than your's does not make me ignorant.

I know right from wrong, and I know there are more than two sides to every story. My point was, if the corruption and cover-ups are so rampant in the S.O. then why is Rivero not exposing them? I don't think if there was so much corruption, that they could keep it a secret from Rivero. And if it's not a secret why is Rivero ignoring it?

Doesn't appear to be corruption at the sheriff's office except for those they are getting rid of. Morshed is a perfect example. Given a chance to make things right, or get back on the right path, he chose the wrong course. What Morshed did, releasing the report, is corruption, and is apparently being dealt with appropriately. As for Rivero, as a candidate for the office, he gets quite a bit more leeway with his speech, but rest assured if it turns out he's invovled with criminal activity as Morshed apparently is, he'll be investigated as well.

Oh, and by the way, the investigation doesn't appear to have been handled by DOJ, based on the report that the search warrant was authored by a sergeant at the LCSO. The only thing which DOJ is apparently handling is the evidence examination...Which is EXACTLY the same thing that happened in the dinius case. So NO, it's not being handled differently.

I think Phil is spot on with this, the story here is, the S.O. did a search warrant and an I.A. on Morshed AND issued a press release about it. Where was the press release for Perdock? Where was the search warrant? Hopkins didn't want to call Perdock as a witness because of the I.A. investigation. Why take one guy to the mat and not the other?
One is purely and internal affairs investigation, and therefore subject to confidentiality laws while the other (Morshed) is a criminal investigation, which is subject to much different confidentiality laws.

I haven't heard that Perdock's access to RIMS was illegal, and I don't think Perdock was posting that information on the internet. Two completely different types of investigations.

For clarification, I don't think Morshed's "ACCESS" to RIMS was illegal either, removing the information from the system and posting it on the internet, however, is quite a different issue.

Was this officer trying to be a whistle blower? Not looking to out himself? He will be gone and it will be a personnel matter. The only change will be, he is gone but we will have Mitchell.

Don't get me started on the "DO NOTHING FOR COMMUNITY MCCLAIN" did you know He is never seen out at night, heard the MRS. keeps a tight leash on him(*Beat Wife?) ahem who knows, but as for a Police Chief he is not a visable person, he does like photo opps. to put on his I LOVE ME WALL.

let's see I predict he will get some illness the last year of his term and go out on disability and sit out the year, check back later and see if I am right....
Oh yea I hear he is a great dupporter of Sheriff Rod Mitchell.

that Sheriff Mitchell Blog is nothing but a handful of illegals,druggies,felons and a few upstanding citizens.

Who for lack of better things to do have found a site they can blow off steam, as that is all that site does, try and tell them anything and it will be deleted before it hits the board.

They won't accept the fact Rod Mitchell will be re-elected and all their ranting and raving is for NOT. They follow Our county workers around like they are Super Snoop Detectives, hope someone who is being tailed reports them as stalkers.

They have slammed so many good wives of deputies and called them trashy names, in hopes of getting them to come on and post....the only thing about that site I know is people find it amusing that people have so much time to trash others, they need to take a long hard look at themselves for their actions.

I am getting confused about the conspiracy theories. Morshed is the one who told Beland not to do a PAS on Perdock, so would that not indicate that he's part of the SO conspiracy to protect Perdock because Perdock was drunk that night and the SO was acting as one to cover that up? So I am confused, because then wouldn't Morshed have some good dirt on Mitchell? Which means it is kind of odd that Mitchell would go after him this way.
