Smells questionable to me as well, with the DA announcing his intention to run again the day before. Looks like he and the Sheriff are washing their hands of this dirty episode without providing any details with the hope the public will simply trust their judgement and let this go away. Objective minds do question the reliability of a supposed thorough and unbiased investigation when no details are provided. I think these allegations should have been referred to the State Patrol or another county to investigate since it involves allegations of improper actions of the Tehama County Sheriff's office and DA.

My recommendation is to clean house by voting them both out of office.

ouch this hurts, because I agree with you. I think they just made it to where alot of people will be voting for someone else. Just goes to show that when it comes to a child, even one who is in trouble, the law isnt there to protect them. its a shame.

I find it interesting that my letter about ongoing corruption hits the paper Tuesday and then, Cohen and Parker prove I'm right today, by saying there is nothing to the allegations by many parents, children and other councilors who witnessed Melissa Jones and Alicia Allen abusing juveniles at juvenile hall.

Three other papers told the full story , Chico News and Review, Sacramento Valley Mirror and Pioneer Press.

Did the DA and Sheriff interview all the witneses?

It happened five years ago and we commented to the Board of Supervisors, Sheriff and DA about our concerns. I do not know what other allegation they are talking about, but they knew about this way before 3 years ago.

Did Daily News reporter Geoff Johnson see the investigation? I know law enforcement says they can not release it, because there are juvenile's involved, but they can black out their names and let a reporter see physical proof of an actual investigation.

I bet he never saw it, because like the Jones molestation case, they never investigated, just pretended they did?

If nothing happened, why did all three employees involved quit this summer, only after the story in Chico News and Review broke?

Did the DA and Sheriff talk to Barry Clausen, the original whistleblower, who was fired for blowing the whistle?

Did they wonder why Melissa Jones pulled a Glock on Barry Clausen and threaten to kill him, if he didn't back off the story he was writing?

Ever wonder why the television stations don't and won't touch these stories, like KRCR Anchor Jennifer Scarbourough, and Parker's right hand reporter girl, won't report this story, even though she says in her commercial ..."there are four, five different angles to a news story and we try to give our audience the all sides". Not in Tehama County Ms. Jenny, not in Tehama County...

Finally, if none of it makes sense, then it's not the truth. Try again Cohen and Parker...This was your lamest cover-up so far.

Especially, when Cohen, who just happens to announce his candidacy to Tehama County on the front page right below the headline "DA, No charges in juvenile center case" says in his announcement that his "emphasis is on sex offenders...Tell that to Jones family. Tell it to the parents of troubled teens, who should have been saved from county paid predators.

Cohen and Parker are full of lies.

I think I'll call Barry Clausen and see if anybody from Law enforcement interviewed him about his allegations?

Wow Pat, you should write some "Murder She Wrote" episodes... Red Bluff has all the makings of "Cabot Cove". There is certainly plenty of elaborate set-ups in Red Bluff. The poisonings.. the hangings.. the stabbings..

Hey, just telling it like it is in Tehangya County. The only way for this community to heal is to expose the garbage and get rid of it, once and for all. Voters have not been told the real story by our local media for too long.

A perfect example is the Daily News and KRCR story didn't have any quotes from the victims, parents or whistle blower, unlike Chico News and Review, Sacramento Valley Mirror and Pioneer Press.

Parker and Cohen are just trying to sweep it under the rug, just like I said they would in January,when they announced they would finally investigate the allegations after us bugging them for 5 years. Cohen contradicted himself when he said they have been looking at it for a year.

Cohen said, "It was a he said , she said situation. Well according to the paper a former employee, Interim Cheif Probation Officer Renny Noll and a former probation Officer said this happened, so, who is saying it didn't?

It is no accident that in today's paper Parker is the hero of after school programs and saving children from crimes. Protect them from crime, but not pedophiles.

The best way for Parker and Cohen to protect children is to spend more time cleaning up and prosecuting real criminals and less time schmoozing
the news for free publicity.

Where have you guys been the last three years, suddenly everyday your doing something wonderful and newsworthy.

Hopefully, people will finally see you two are full of it and corrupt to the core.

Not surprisingly absolutely nothing. The DA has closed his investigation and has not offered any response to my inquiries. He is apparently of the belief that it is a non-issue. I can only hope that the voters of Tehama County don't agree.

BTW there may be some more information at the associated assault trial April 1, 2010 - being April fools day I do have my doubts though!
