Chief Graham runs the CPD by fear and intimadation. If you ever notice the LCSO website showing arrest, Clermont is hardly EVER on there. Does this mean that there is no crime in Clermont? Well, yes there is, Graham and his band of corrupt administrators along with the blessing of the city manager, Wayne Saunders, DO NOT want there officers to be pro active. They are told to answer service calls and do not go beyond that scope if you know whats good for you.
Several years ago, officers went to FDLE and agent Giddens (with all his Lake Co. Connections) deteremined after conducting an investigation and not interviewing people who witnessed Graham commit a felony, said Graham did nothing wrong. Now CPD has a Captain, Charles "Chuck" Broadway, who at one time was over the public integity unit for FDLE doing this "internal investigation" on Graham's personal friend (LOUGHNAN) that he has known for over 27 yrs, so let's see if he does the right thing or not. Most likely he will not, as to the fact that he has already lied on offciers at CPD, has viewed video's and swears he never seen anything.
Graham how do you put one of you people on suspension and you the chief of police are over at that suspended employee's house (LOUGHNAN) relaxing in a lawn chair in his driveway? We have pictures!!!! You are the most unethical and corrupt man I have had the pleasure to know. And the picture the commercial posted of you today needs to be removed and show how you currently look....like death walked over you. It's that or you need to lay the meth pipe down, your not looking healthy at all....just saying!!!

It's amazing that Graham places his long time friend Loughnan on suspension with pay and prior to the reports hitting the local media airwaves, he is at Loughnan's house kicked back in the driveway in a lawn chair and their chatting like little school girls. Can anyone say thats not unethical? Why did Graham ask the Sheriff's Office to conduct an internal investigation on three of his officers just prior to this investigation and not ask the same of his friend Loughnan...it appears to be a conflict of interest for Graham's keeping this "in house". We are watching and waiting for the outcome of this investigation and a demotion will not work because Loughnan has made it known that he wants to be a sergeant in order to get all the overtime his friend Graham can give to him. There is no other outcome to this "IA" other then Loughnan's firing and the immediate notification to FDLE"S training commission that Loughnan committed Offical Misconduct by submitting false statements. I would love to be a fly on the wall inside Graham's office and watch as to the spin with all the smoke and mirrors they use to try and fix this outright mess Loughnan put his friend in. Will the former supervisor with the public intergerty unit, Clermont Captain Chuck Broadway do what's right, we will wait and see. I would hate to be in his shoes right after he has personally watched Graham and JJ lie and set people up. Curious if Loughnan's IA will have him on suspension for eight, or nine months like others that were targeted and fired. Skip that Loughnan's not a target he's best buddies with the Chief of Police.
The taxpayers are watching!!!!

There is not a shadow of a doubt that Graham didn't know about Loughnan's resume. I wouldn't be surpised if he didn't tell him to add to it trying to conceal the fact Loughnan is an idiot. Now evidence has come to light the guy lied about some of the awards he claims to have recieved while at the Boynton Beach PD, the agency he and Graham blossomed their great friendship..stay tuned!!!

Wayne Saunders don't want anyone around him with brains or ethics. They might start asking questions about those bones again. Then they might start asking questions about Cheatam and they sweet deal he got to take a hike. Rumor has it that sweet little deal is still paying off like a slot machine every month and it ain't called retirement either. That's why all these goons are so tight with Mike Giddens because he's as rotten as they are. Funny thing is people like Saunders always surround themselves with usful idiots they can control; then when their little schemes start to crumble they are to dumb to realize it ws those idiots that brought on their demise.

The same senerio applies to all of those who lie and hold Gary Borders up. They know he can;t afford to really enforce the law so they can pull their schemes and sell and use their drugs but thanks to her their whole organization will fall taking them along with him.

speaking of them bones, graham told the council that they have a partial DNA match.....DUH, I watch enough CSI that you either have a match or you dont. Stop covering for ex employees, current employees, and ex elected officals and release who dem bones belong to I am sure the family would like closure. Guess it will take a new chief and some investigators that have ethics to do that.

Apparently Graham only has a partial brain. So to him everything is partial. He may even have partial dentures who knows? Saying you have a partial DNA would be like saying you are partially pregnant. Everyone even those with a partial brain knows you are either pregnant or you are not so which is it? Maybe this professional high standard cop of CSI expertise meant to say they had the DNA back on one set of the bones found on that city property. Rumors have it they have some more human remains that has been found on that property also. Maybe he's just waiting to see if it's all in the family. Nothing suspicious here dead people bury themselves all the time.

It really amazes me that Chief Graham has suspended and fired officers based on his own personal agenda, some he placed on paid suspension for eight months or until his band of idiots found a reason to terminate stating that his reason to suspend was based on the severity of the alledged charges. Now comes this, Officer Joseph Avery has recieved more discipline then the majority of the officers combined. This guy was accused of having sexual relations with a juvenile female police explorer while he was a explorer advisor. Now this guy wasn't suspended even through one would reason that's a pretty severe charge to be facing. After a half hearted investigation he was found not guity of the charge, but he was removed as a explorer advisor. Before that he accused of stealing a fellow officers sunglasses and found guilty and got a small suspension (used vacation time and never was taken off the road). There is a whole bunch more that will come out shortly..I work for Graham and I think the guy has some mental issues but I remain quite and do as I am told because I am scared to death to do my job because I need my paycheck.

Looking at the photo of you Graham in the commercial and seeing you now it looks as though you only have a partial face. Is there a partial medical reason for this? I don't think so, I believe that all the dirt you have done from bangin the chick Gale at city hall, at the same time the IT guy was bangin her, its funny how they both were fired to your bringing the grim reaper from winter garden over is really eating you up, and I mean eating you up all the way done to the bone. The reaper is one nasty lying POS. what a weird guy this is he calls home at lunchtime to an answering machine and talks to his dogs, what a whack job. graham the reaper should've taken aleast a partial physc exam when he was hired instead of you allowing him not to it would have been documented that the guys partially not all there. Now that your bestie loughnan is under the gun, u might better carry a couple of bricks or something heavy in your pockets because it is hurricane season and i for one would hate to see you blow away before the truth on you comes out. if the weight loss on you is from a diet of some sort maybe you should've partially followed it because it's not healthly to lose as much as you have medical experts say thats bad on your heart and we all want you around to face all the lawsuits coming your way. Actually only a partial part of this is true, you figure which part.

WOW! No wonder Graham had to go all the way over to Seminole County Court to file for a divorce! His now LUCKY EX-WIFE didn't deserve the embarrassment of lake County people finding out she was married to the POS. Maybe when they run him out of Clermont Borders will hire him. He only hires two types of males Homo's or woman beaters, mistreaters and haters! Graham will be in like Flynn! That way Borders and Graham can look like death warmed over together. By the way they must be friends Borders just had his Channel 9 crew breaking news about how it took the sheriffs office with the help of Tavares and Clermont PD six months to make 25 meth arrests in Umatilla - Altoona area. Damn they are good they got Jimmy Parrish. Anybody with a badge could have arrested Parrish for drugs 365 times a year for the last 30 years. Big deal right here at election time. Why the hell didn't they arrest these Umatilla drug boys years ago. Borders probably trying to raise some money to pay off his new found friend Mike Hatfield. Everyone knows he's going to defend Jimmy Parrish. Hell this is Umatilla.
Again JOE r u 4 real

This douche just recently got suspended AGAIN, this time for failing to take a report (2nd or 3rd time thats happen)If your to fat and lazy to do your job why don't you quit. Stop responding to all the calls you go to with red and blue lights flashing and siren whaling. The cat stuck in a tree does not require you to run code. I believe you been warned about that numerous times, numbnuts!

At it again releasing slanted stories to the media, and all you do is look look a bunch of monkeys bonkin a football. Why no IA on Ofc. johnson for getting stopped doing 80 in a 40 on SR 50 and he was on probation? Because you guys have people like him so scared they dont "rock" the boat. Graham I think maybe you and JJ have something for young guys, maybe if gary is re elected you guys could get a job in Tavares with him and have his sloppy seconds. Another whats with all the butchs you hire? My friend said that there was only one straight female cop there. What until these chicks start having lover spats..

The whole Lake County fairy Sheriff and his band of faries is causing more than laughing. That is a serious abuse of what law enforcement is supposed to stand for.

Saunders knows they don't have anything to worry about. They have FDLE Mike Giddens right in their pockets and enough cash flow on some of their deals to keep everyone fat and happy nand their mouths shut. Why do you think Giddens ratted out the guys that went to FDLE looking for some honest looking into this corrupt Chief and his long time friend Loughan. Saunders has been able to keep that partial DNA under wraps and Danny Cheatham paid every month.
