Well she is at it again defending her friend Steve Graham in today's paper. She already got the liar a job with her friend the sheriff. How funny that he has her believing that he was brought in to clean up the riff-raff. This a**wipe is the one that brought all the riff-raff upon himself. Stevie, JJ, and Jimbo all Lauren's new found butties wouldn't know the truth if it slapped em dead in the face. When the ones pending arbitration are cleared and the evidence overwhelmingly show's the corruption what will Lauren, and Mullet head Mullins have to say then?
her friends

one thing lauren ritchie will do is take up for her friends and verbally assault anyone who dares to cross them. with her you have to take the time to figure out what connects her to the 'friend."

She rants and raves in the below article because no one took the time to do a background on Ralph Bowers previous sexual encounters in Jasper, Fl. but, she supports and covers up for former chief Stevie Graham. That only means she don't know about his south Florida troubles that make him the cheapest chief wayne saunders could hire or she knows and she don't give a rats butt.

In her fruitland park chief remarks, interesting she attacks him with "What the chief failed to do, however, was something that is routine for any crime and typically becomes immediate public record: Write a report. Such a document contains the dates and times of any crime, the names and addresses of those involved, the nature of the crime and a brief description of what happened.
Isaac's decision effectively shielded his boss from the specifics becoming public. If there's no record of a crime, then, very conveniently, no record can be released to the public. Bad, bad idea. That leaves the public rightfully wondering why the police chief would give his boss special treatment that would keep embarrassing allegations secret from the people who pay his salary."

Hell what good does it do to write a report? Deputy Mark Marshall wrote and excellent report regarding the five litle boys raped at Sheriff Borders Green Isle Boy Ranch. What good do that do? Borders and his friends fired Rev Zepp for calling 911. When Marshall turned the report in Det Marselein Poitevent set on it for 75 days bacause the rapist was a special friend of Sheriff Borders.

You can always tell who their friends are by who gets the special favors. Who gets arrested and who goes home without prosecution no matter if its rape or murder! Just wait and see Sgt Thompson and Det Pointevent or Amber Warren or whichever whitewash specialist they put on this case won't find any wrong doing on Ralph Bowers part either. Apparently they think all sex is wonderful and never can it be illegal or immoral. Sicko's protecting other sicko's. Lauren Ritchie needs to check with her friend "the sheriff" and see if he hasn;t cut a deal with Bowers to let him off if Bowers close connections will agree to keep they mouth shut about the jail sex between Borders and Washburn.

Very Interesting! Lauren Ritchie's column today makes an honorable mention of the Fruitland Park debacle. In the “Fruitland Park sidesteps issue” section she says “There they go again — doing nothing.”

The Chief got reprimanded for violating Fl St 104.31 (influencing an election) by the City Clerk acting as City Manager. She says “Fruitland Park's real manager is suspended while Lake County sheriff's detectives investigate whether he committed a sex crime against a female employee.”
On November 25, 2012 she said “This week, however, commissioners will have a chance to burst the bubble and step into the reality where the rest of us live. By then, the Sheriff's Office will have finished its investigation, and for the first time, some reliable independent information about what happened will be available to commissioners.” What happened? Guess this high tech investigation stalled.

No mention of this great top secret sexual investigation in progress by her friend “the sheriff” and his highly trained Colonel Schultz Detectives whose motto is “I see nothing” wrong.
Maybe those pesky bloggers are right after all maybe the morally challenged sheriff has met his match with Ralph Bowers and his connections with all the jail house inmate sex evidence. We wouldn’t want to start an avalanche of well connected perverts going to jail for all there crimes when they can just stay free by “doing nothing.”

Oh Yea! We do have a “big deal” in Fruitland Park that reprimand to Isaacs for violating Fl St 104.31 it stated that he failed to follow the direct orders of a supervisor and that his behavior was "conduct unbecoming an employee of Fruitland Park." From here on, the letter said, Isaacs must behave or he could be subject to increased discipline.” Maybe if he keeps this up they will put him on “hard probation” or something. Kind of reminds us of these modern day parents we see at Wal-Mart reprimanding their kids over and over for failing to do right. Usually it’s just threats to make those around with brains think they are really parents or just put offs like Borders fake sexual investigations. If they were going to do a real investigation and make an arrest or do anything they would have done it immediately. Maybe Lt Linda Green, Sgt Thompson and Detectives Marcie Poitevent and Amber Warren don’t know what a crime is when the see one! They are just patiently waiting for the short term memory public to forget about all of this and soon they will file it in the“ it never happened category” file.

Then, later when someone inquires about it they will look at them like they are idiots and ask where did you hear that from.
Whats taking so long

Wonder what the bitter, old columnist from the out-of-county newspaper is thinking now about her comments in her November 25th article concerning Fruitland Park and her friend “the sheriff.

On that date she said “So far, Fruitland Park commissioners have acted as though their little city exists in a bubble. When Commissioner Jim Richardson — who was defeated for re-election by Chris Cheshire in a runoff last week — told his colleagues in that June public meeting that he had received information that Bowers might be involved with the same employee, they shamefully did nothing.”“This week, however, commissioners will have a chance to burst the bubble and step into the reality where the rest of us live.


Well, it’s December 10, 2012 – Another week has come and gone and where is that “finished investigation, and that first time, reliable independent information about what happened?”
Could it be that since she claims to be “in reality where the rest of us live” some real reality might be sinking in and is it possible by now for her to smell a rat about why the Ralph Bowers criminal allegations are being ignored by her friend “the sheriff”?

Probably not as liberal as she is she probably has one of those “fit all” excuses for him like “they’re just so busy it’s taking longer than they and she thought it would. That one would be easy to use since the sheriff’s sexual intellectual detectives have several sex abuse and other sex crimes they have been hard at work covering up now for weeks. Surely this Fruitland Park thing will be all wrapped up tight in a few weeks or years; not to worry, it was all just political mixes with some misunderstanding.
