This is a good example of why our constitutional rights should not be comped in the name of
"homeland security".

Police will stretch the facts or in this case "lie" to make their job easier.

Nothing will become of this, but if you lie to one of THEM its a serious charge.

Shameful!

Yes, but its like Chitwood said, you think they are going to identify themselves when they are undercover? Also, most warrants wouldn't be able to be served if the cops announced what they are there for. And this guy DID have drugs in the house. And he DID get arrested before for drugs. The judge could have dismissed the case without going to the extent of calling these officers liars. What are judges? Attorneys! What are attorneys? Liars!!! They are taught to do whatever it takes to
get their client cleared of any charges. I think Chief Chitwood is a good police chief. He has tried to
weed out the bad cops and go to bat for the good
ones. These officers didn't deserve to be called liars. I'm sure this defendant is just a model citizen. The officers were not just going down the road and decided to pick this house. The law works for the criminals, not the victims.

Lawyers become politicians judges become corrupt. Judge Will also took careful consideration in dismissing the case against former D.B. beach patrol officer Bobby Tamaris- the discission was never reported, however the court date was announced. It was a claim of violation of constitutional rights. Those most likely familiar with the case recall that Tamaris/former D.B. Beach capt Richie Gardner are accused of having sex-with minors. The young lady involved was not frightened away she went to Tarmaris' house armed with a tape recorder. The News Journal has huge stories in corruption, but they are a part of the scheme of things. It's difficult to understand exactly why this isn't getting national media attention. District 2 commissioner Josh Wagner gave legal advise to a minor- without parental consent. R.J. Larrissa was quoted as saying he does not investigate white collar crime!!! Where the HELL are the feds??

Looks like it got swept under the rug as usual. They do anything they want without paying a price. For the rest of us we would be under the jail. The same standards do not apply to regular folks. If you are a carpenter, roofer or any hard working person that actually work for a living then you are going to pay out the butt. If you work at the courthouse then your going to get favors plain and simple. I agree that the news journal and many others are just as corrupt. They might need a favor one day should they find themselves in trouble. Who better to ask than the ones that you wrote good things about despite what they have done or have been charged with. Just the way the system works. And it works for the people who have money or power or both.

The article gives an impression of diverting attention away from a point. The News Journal once again!! is confusing facts with issues. After the police found an illegal prescription they didn't have the right to be there. Only because it was a violation of rights so lets say they lied instead of a mother that certainly doesn't want her drug addict son to go to jail. It's not even about who lied. The story changes to a judge that sounds corrupt. When people write articles like this it creates nothing but confusion. An example, jim-chisholm investigated for missing $5.5 million that's a true story that is hidden by ideas like "BIKE WEEK EXPECTED TO BRING 300.000 PEOPLE. OH GREAT!! that's the Main Street advisory board people like Theresa Doan & Gary Libby telling residents they are getting robbed and the Journal telling people to be happy about it. Or content with the idea that they can't change things.

Does disorderly conduct mean being drunk or causing a disturbance? What is the true meaning to get charged with disorderly conduct? Is there a fine to pay? What happens when a clerk or officer of the court gets arrested on that charge?

I don't think this is off topic at all. It just goes to show everyone what really happens. I for one would like to know what happens when an officer of the clerk or one who works directly for a judge gets arrested for disorderly conduct goes to jail etc... what happens? Do they pay a fine? Do they get probation or is it just swept under the rug? With any other city official or cop, its front page news, so why is this any different? Is it because she works at the courthouse and for a judge? Wasn't it not so long ago that a clerk got fired for making a clerical mistake? I hear this isn't the first arrest. I guess anyone can get a job there IF you know the right people. Hush hush.

I looked on the busted website and that's judge wills assistant all right. She looked wild eyed and happy. She knew nothing would come of it as far as being disiplined. And isn't this the judge that does mostly drug court? No wonder he called the officers liars. I also looked on the volusia court website and didn't see a thing about her. So what happened? I agree, if it had been an elected official or anyone else it would have been splashed all over the paper. What's the deal? Are they immune to being prosecuted or do they have special rights because they work for a judge. I admit that disorderly conduct is a minor thing, but it should apply to all citizens and no one should get special treatment. I find it hard to believe a judge will believe a mother (who's son may go back to jail) over two officers. This incident also happened around the same time that Judge Wills assistant gets arrested. Hummmm, that's interesting.

The Daytona Beach News Journal reports story that stand behind local gov't. For example Mayor Glenn Rithey was quoted to say that Bike Week takes in some $300 Million there is nothing that supports that figure!! The City Manager leased a statement, that raises will not be give to Volusia County Fire Departments! Meanwhile the City manager is under investigation for 5.5 Million dollars that can not be explained in all honesty to residents who deserve to know! An fire department chief in Port Orange retired with %75 percent of his pay $72.000 then he accepted a job working for the Deland Fire Department. A large percentage of teachers in Volusia County make $60.000 a year. City Manager Jim Dineen supposed to be doing an audit. The city commission applied for yet another bond. City Commissioner [district #2] Josh Wagner is being investigated for giving legal advise to minor by telling her to go to the Wagner Clinic- which has been shut down for writing illegal presciptions!! Somebody needs to throw Ted Doran in jail... would you like more examples?

The newest daytona official charged during bikeroberfest gets probation after beating? The victim has numerous injuries including his eye socket to name a few. And the guy only has to pay a few hundred bucks for the victims injuries that are most likely permanent! That's bs. And it only has to do with who the defendants lawyer was. His lawyer at one time was the judges partner before he was a judge. For someone this violent getting a slap on the hand is outragous. But just goes to show how our system really works. I was told by this judges assistant that its not what you know
but who you now. Boy aint that the truth! This same judicial assistant was arrested back in September of last year for disorderly conduct, but her last name qas spelled wrong. Trembly, instead of Trembley. That's a error. I seriously doubt it. Her mugshot looks to be high as a kite. So, what happened to her, any fines, anything? Nobody seems to know. Its all kept hush hush. And this isn't the first time. Daytona shores has pulled her over before and her response has been " I work for judge will and I will have your job.". This is a perfect example of how our good ole boy system works.

Here's another example: Pavin P.m Patel owner of the Herritage motel became a member of the Halifax Advertising Authority, dispite the fact that Chief Chitwood claimed his motel is a magnet for crime. Chief Chitwood recieved a lot of heat from Joyce Cusack- stating that it was of all things exclusionary to not allow Petal to serve on the board. The nerve of her...!! she claimed predudice. Well heres the update, The Herritage motel was busted for having a meth lab. Patel was not charged he was alledgedly dismissed from the Haa board, but these politicians can't be trusted. Ted Doran stepped down, as chairman [H.aa ] but he still retains a seat on the board! 4/30/12

Nepotism is everywhere. Between that and political pragmatism, TPTB are not concerned with justice. They want numbers to make it seem as if they are doing their job. For every "little guy" that gets screwed over, it brings their numbers up so that their friends, family, generous campaign supporters, and sometimes themselves can take a walk.

It won't stop until the people stand up and MAKE THEM stop.

Remember, remember the 5th of November the gunpowder treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.

A people should not fear its government. A government should fear its people.

I don't think the DB police really know what the laws are. While staying at a condo by the pier, an officer responded to a noise complaint and LOUDLY told the tenants that, although he could see them smoking crack through the blinds, they didn't have any identification, and he recognized the woman as a known prostitute, he wasn't going to arrest them. He just told them to quiet down and stop bothering people. While there, I had my debit card "skimmed" at the Popeye Chicken and the employee make purchases in Georgia and when I tried to file a report, I was told that since the purchase didn't happen in DB, it wasn't their responsibility to investigate. So, maybe letting the officers know what the laws are would help.

IF... this actually happened you were, 1. not close enough to see or hear what was going on. 2 You we're actually in on it, or it happened to someone you know. 3. you have a criminal record & you're posting this out of spite. Cancel your credit card, companies use tracking to make sure you're the only one using it- chalk it up as a loss, it happens to people- don't blame the police. The Daytona Beach Police Department, makes arrests on prostitution/drug related charges 11 people at a time on a regular basis. This just soundsa like a sad story that isn't true

No need to wonder, it was swept under the rug. She just got arrested again a month ago for DUI. So let's see what happens. Looked on volusiaexposed.com ... They posted a copy of the accident report, and also a copy of her last arrest and it was expunged. I know someone who has been trying for years to have his record expunged and still has not been able to get it done and he has money. It was something he did when he was very young and dumb.
