You even had balls enough to come back to work? Your too stupid to know when it's time to cut and run. Do the people of Jackson County a favor and quit now and let someone withh a brain and personality come in and clean up your massive disgusting mess!

Christopher Joseph said the investigation would be wrapped up in a week...it's been a week and there is no end in sight for the investigation. It is appearing that Charlie wasn't even honest with his own attorney about how bleak the outlook is for him as the KBI is obviously still pouring over whatever evidence they collected.

I think what he was saying is that Charlie's had his lawyer state that the investigation was only going to last a week, when that obviously was not true. Either his lawyer is stupid, or else Charlie put him up to saying that as some sort of damage control ploy. The Holton Recorder that arrived today even when as far as to report that KBI themselves are stating that the investigation is not done and is not close to done. To have Charlie's group say a couple weeks ago that the investigation would be done in a week, is just another of the same old round of lies from Charlie and the 3 people in that department that support him.

I honestly dont know what to make of this, however I do know the sheriff department in holton does need to reign in their officers who patrol 75 Hwy. I almost got run off the road by one. If they have human rights violations they earned them. My first experiance with holton was being pulled over by a female cop because I had a Wichita, Ks tag. Her excuse was that I changed lanes too many times. Sheriff Cornell seems like a decent person when you meet him. His deputies need some training courses example: if you are going to make an arrest Read people their rights! Another good example dont harrass drivers cause your board. Dont pull people into investigations that has nothing to do with them. Dont arrest spouses for arguments that are not physical! Treat others how you would want to be treated. I seriously hope they get a clue!

READ PEOPLE THEIR RIGHTS? OMG that is what is wrong with the internet and websites like topix. You ignorant fool cops are not required to read you your rights just because you were arrested. It is only a requirement for CUSTODIAL INTEROGATION! Tha means your in custody no longer free to leave! There are also exceptions to this! Get an education.

To Getoff in Quenemo:
When you have a Sheriff who has now undergone (at least) 2 investigations, one of which he himself has kept sealed, you cannot restore faith in an administration that is led by a man like that.

When you have a Sheriff that never mentions his other law enforcement experience in Edgerton because he was forced out under suspicious circumstances, you cannot restore faith in an administration that is led by a man like that.

When you have a Sheriff that publicly treated his own mother with complete and humiliating disrespect while the other Senior Citizens watched from their windows, you cannot restore faith in an administration run by a man like that.

When you have a Sheriff that has gone through more employees than any other previous Sheriff in the history of the county, you cannot restore faith in an administration run by a man like that.

When you have a Sheriff who has blatantly lied about what his staff has and has not done that has caused damaged to private citizens, and then got caught in the lie, you cannot restore faith in an administration run by a man like that.

When you have a Sheriff who talks poorly of businesses in his County to other business owners in the same county, word gets around quickly, and you cannot restore faith in an administration that is led by a man like that.

When you have a Sheriff who has had to settle countless lawsuits out of court to save face and public opinion, you cannot restore faith in an administration run by a man like that.

So, to put it simply, even if by some miracle Charlie is cleared of any wrong doing, he has ruined his own reputation by showing his true colors and talking poorly of too many of the local people that he is supposed to be protecting instead of trying to damage.

5 months ago the Sheriff bought himself a new car from the Kansas Highway Patrol. This vehicle has 49,000 miles on it, as is standard with the vehicles that they sell. The Sheriff announces his mileage over the radio for anyone with a scanner to hear, and the public now knows that the Sheriff has about 84,000 miles on his car. In the course of 5 months, the Sheriff has driven 35,000 miles, which obviously breaks down to 7,000 miles a month, or around 225 miles a day (all assuming he's working 7 days a week, if you break it down to 5 days a week, it's really outrageous). That's a lot of miles for a man driving around in his suit isn't it? You only hear him on the radio respond to the simple calls such as a cow out, a motorist in need, or house alarm. He never does any of the calls that may get his hands dirty, and the citizens of Jackson County are willing to foot a gas bill (based on $2.50 a gallon) of nearly $12,000 a year just for him to take care of some cows and handle an occasional abandoned vehicle?

Well, he doesn't know how to do basic investigations related to Leo work. He can't do a DUI investigation and has encountered several drunk drivers since he has been sheriff and just let's them drive away. He'd rather save a vote than a life. He talks about all the arrest that he makes every month, but he doesn't admit that they are warrents from the jail, that someone else arrested.

It's really sad that everyone that works
for him admits that there is something wrong with his head and they are scared that he's gonna snap soon( I think he snapped along time ago) and kill someone.

Just recently he and the fat under sheriff failed to respond when their deputies needed back up on an attempted murder suspect, in Delia ks. The under sheriff made it there an hour later. The sheriff was questioned about the response and the sheriff suspended himself and the under sheriff for two days. WTF?

Tell that to the taxpayers when they find out how much money has been shelled out in lawsuits that have been settled out of court.
