Caldwell Sheriff scandal
Go Blackdog

Greer, SC

#53 Jan 5, 2013
I didn't get emotions out of that, I got totally the opposite. If that Dept isn't brought down before election day, I will be the first to drive down there with my pickup truck full of boxes from the grocery store for them to pack and get out. Not helping them pack up though, I do not have a BioHazard suit and enough rubber gloves to want to get next to ANY of that crowd. Blackdog seems to be someone who was devoted to his job and doesn't like seeing the position abused. I applaud him for pointing a lot out that the NoNews Topic works so hard to hide. The dept has had everyone fooled for a while, but your elected official is soon going out of that office. Running a sex office in the Bible Belt? Smart. Really smart. Oh so many churches and members county wide who know. And Hiding embezzlement from the poor, and I mean poor people of this county, also not smart. Buying new automobiles when so many can't even afford a two liter sodapop. It's one scandal after another. Reelected, nope. Not this time. This county needs more like Blackdog. Someone who cares about the citizens and not the drinking buddies with questionable past employment who is costing this county a boatload in out of court settlements. I applaud Blackdog for not hiding the truth. It's not emotions talking in my opinion....but the truth.

The followers of Jones are grasping at straws. I applaud you for speaking the truth about what really goes on out at that crappy place. I want to ask, if you know the answer, is it public knowledge of exactly how much money for out of court settlements and in court settlements has been spent covering the actions of our elected official and his poor choices. I have only gotten grief from the Clerk of Courts office when I have asked for all the copies of cases that have been filed. I just got out before the clerks notified the JimJones clan to arrest me for anything they could think up. And you and I both know they could find something. Why our Clerks office will not hand over a public document is something. I can't remember another office who has stood there playing 20 questions and then tell you to wait, they need to make some calls.???? But, the matters alone just filed in Caldwell is staggering. I did find that on the computer used to search for judgments etc by title searches. I just wonder HOW MUCH this sheriff has cost us. The new vehicles purchased was mind boggling. Who does that in this economy? Coverups of a huge embezzlement is another. I bet in the end, Amy Morgan gets paid off to not talk. Knowing this county, it will happen. Seizing guns, I'm kind of glad that happened though, it opens the door for Feds to see the bullying going on by these idiots wearing the badge.

I just wonder what other lawsuits sit out there not filed in Caldwell or even NC that the NewsLESS Topic has kept from us.

I just found out today, about this sex scandal. A dear friend of mine, whom I respect & trust with all of my heart, was arrested in Granite Falls . He told me what had happened, who the officers are, & the citations that were written. He told me they lied. I could see in his eyes that he told me the truth. Now, I have found that the arresting officers, one being a Granite Falls cop & the other a State Trooper, are involved in this scandal! These two are married to one another, also. I know for sure my friend is innocent. I hope he sues them & justice prevails!

I am afraid this scandal is a great encompasses more law personnel than we know. It is sickening ; officers rapeing, lieing, telling untruths, forceing themselves on citizens, and hiding behnd a badge, who do they think they are. Its not jusst the low totum pole either it goes to the top and we do pay their salary. The sad fact is they are allwoed to resign with pay and benefits we are paying for their mistakes or they move on to make more somewhere else. WE Need to have everything investigated, strict drug testing, psychological evaluations as the state level does on some positions.They need to have at least 2-years of education in a justice school so we see they are aware of laws rules and their conduct. If they care to go that far they may continue in their work ethics. I wonder if the commissioners are concerned about this and all of the law suits being filed. The man who the officers took his gun and forced their way into his home without a warrant and abused him this will and should cost. It is not going away. Citizens who used to smile and not hide and turn away when they are near.

As long as Alan Jones is the Sheriff, there will be more problems and issues for this county, lawsuits, scandals, employee theft, intimidation, double standards, high turn-over and cover-ups.......
Ask anyone if they supported Jones before and if they support him now, you will not find anyone that does unless they or their family work there or unless they gain something from him being sheriff. The Republicans are starting to distance themselves from him, they are being very quiet about another candidate in 2014. There will be a primary election!

I worked for this bunch up until 3 years ago. I left on my own to pursue other employment. Everything that is said on here is true. I have never in my life seen a bigger bunch of morons who call themselves law enforcement officers. One bright spot in this whole mess is that Mike Longo is gone. He was the most arrogant, hateful, cocky individual that I believe I have ever been around. He took morale down to a whole new level. What I never understood was how he could be fired from one law enforcement agency and then hired by another, only to be promoted to captain over patrol. It's poor decisions such as this that is why the Sheriffs Office is in the mess that it's in. You have another situation in which an individual was fired from the SHP, only to be hired by Alan Jones and promoted to captain. Then, there is another situation in which someone was fired from a law enforcement agency, hired by Jones, and promoted to a shift lieutenant. He has now been fired for assaulting a handicapped kid in the E.R. What makes this particular situation even more interesting is that this person is Mike Longo's cousin. Do ya'll see what I mean by problems? Now, I'm the first the say that just because a person has been fired from one place does not mean that they don't deserve to work and support their family. However, when it comes time for promotions, are there not equally qualified people to hold those positions that have never been fired from other places, have great integrity, and have always used good judgment when it comes to day to day life decisions. When the next sheriffs election rolls around, I hope that voters will remember these things and vote accordingly.

Jones promoted a man whom I will call on here as "Bertha Joe" as a result of the latest scandal. Just 1 year ago yesterday, Bertha Joe got complained on by an outraged husband because Bertha BigBoy Joe wouldn't leave his wife alone. It was so bad the woman sat in the house all day with her cell off and computers off so he couldn't track her. And Jones does nothing but promote the guy to Captain. I guess sleeze gets promoted first out there. Wonder what Jones will do with the emails Bertha BigBoy has sent to numerous women, that may be slapping him in the face soon? More than 1 woman bothered here.

.

Did you see the other post where another employee is asking Atty General Roy Cooper to look at the Longo files? Wouldn't hurt to get more going and the office finally reviewed. A lot of us that supported Jones feel STUPID for believing he stood for anything good. I'm ready to donate trash bags for him and his to pack up and get out. Wait til the National News guys get here to investigate next month, this town will be the laughing stock nationally since Robert Glass. Jones isn't the stand up guy he fooled us to believe. Look at who got promoted recently to Captain....the biggest sleeze of all.

I don't know anything that is going on here nor do I know any of the people involved but I do know that many (posters)are making this county look bad. Seems that no matter who is in office people come here and talk about how bad they are, if I were to believe all that is posted here (and I don't) I would expect to see it on the evening news. As for peoples sex lives, really, have you nothing better to talk about? Why don't we all get involved and make this county better rather than drag it down for the bottom feeders.

I think that normally you would be right. However, we are talking about a law enforcement agency, supervised by an elected official who is supposed to be held to a higher standard. The problem is that a lot of the posters on here are former employees of the Sheriff and were fired or forced to resign for stupid reasons. But then you have these "supervisors" who were involved in all kinds of "messes" who were allowed to continue acting like they were untouchable. I guess you could call it a good old fashioned double standard.

AMEN! Justified explanation just to suit their needs. It's like sooooo what if they at CCSO harass, stalk, behave crudely, they have a badge and its the power trip of a lifetime. Cover your childrens ears and eyes up at the next DARE program awards day because the badge wearers can behave any way they want. Just because they got caught doing some things, its sending a message to the youth that is messed up!!!!!!!!!! Let's also just say that Charles Manson wasn't really a bad person either while were at it. That ole pesky killings he and his misfits did, let's sweep it under the rug because today, Charles is a millionaire from behind bars. Anyone with that kind of money isn't a killer, just misguided. Please!!!!!!!! The CCSO jobs are serving the public, if they can't treat the badge with respect and not expect citizens to question scandal after scandal after scandal, they need a job working from home online as a porn crazy freak. The badge and uniform isn't respected, period. That the message going to the kids. I myself want to know who besides Amy Greer Morgan had me fooled. People probably wouldn't continue to talk if this latest wasn't swept under the rug with the other scandals. Jimmy Swaggart came forward finally, and people didn't discuss him 90-120++++ days later. If hecis brought up any now, its to joke about him. If there isn't something else to hide going on out there at CCSO, then why not out with it already? This subject still lingers 3 months later. This taxpayer has the right to know so the same mistake won't take place again the next election. People deserve to know who is abusing a job the tax dollars pay them to do. Law enforcement chose their profession of public servant. I think these officers should consider finding a new building to open a brothel because they will not be there as law enforcement after the next election. Thank Goodness! All the churches know what's going on via word of mouth because it is not like we have an actual newspaper reporting facts to us. Double standard, the answer for all the CCSO scandals brought forth. Hmmm. Interesting. Bank robbers, child molestors shouldnt be brought public either then. Right?!?!

You are right. It seems to be the same group of ex-employees making accusations with no proof.. As a citizen I think CCSD does a decent job esp after dealing with the capt. and seeing how down to earth he is and as far as their private live, that's their business. It seems like any official, business or person that actually tries in Caldwell Co automatically becomes a target of malicious talk.

You are nauseating to say the least. So "if" I were a Caldwell County Deputy I assume under your logic I could use illicit drugs, buy prostitutes, and act like white trash on my days off as long as I didn't do that at work... correct?

No, I am saying their personal life is just that, personal. However if it involves any illegal or immoral acts that effects their job or the counties reputation then I agree that is a public matter and should be dealt with properly . However the only neg info I see is here on topix,

I agree and sadly that is all you will find on here is he said she said but rest assured it is not all wrong or off base. I think the ones that originally started the threads did so in an attempt to get people to demand info from the County, to get people to call the media and other outlets. So far the media has been a bust but luckily other government agencies and representatives have been more attentive, it will just take time. The rest of this nonsense is both sides name calling back and forth. It would seem to me that the Sheriff would make some kind of statement instead of pretending it will just away with time, I know that is what he is hoping for and counting on, it's a long way to 2014 for some people.

This is all there is!
Investigation into Caldwell Co. Sheriff's Office leads to six resignations
CALDWELL COUNTY, NC (WBTV)- Six people who have connections to the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office have resigned from their positions, according to Sheriff's Office officials. The resignations come after an internal investigation, officials say. Sheriff Alan Jones has accepted the resignation of four Sheriff's Office personnel and two communications personnel. "This is a confidential personnel matter therefore we cannot address the nature or any additional details regarding the investigation," officials told WBTV. "We will regret the loss of these officers but it will not affect services to the citizens of the county" stated Sheriff Alan Jones.

Everything else is just Garbage posted on Topix by small minds.
