Lake County should give animal control to the sheriff

Mar 27, 2014 Full story: The Orlando Sentinel 17

Last year at this time, Lake County commissioners had a chance to turn the animal control operation over to sheriff, who can do the job more cheaply using inmate labor.

“Now, however, is the perfect time to examine whether county taxpayers — and the animals — would be better off if the sheriff ran the operation.” Now that is laughable to use one of Lauren Ritchie’s favor replies to things she don’t agree with.

What kind of person who claims to be the sheriff of a county would have his office cover up the brutal rapes of five little boys?

On Nov. 21, 2009 five little boys 12-15 living at the Green isle Boys Ranch run by Gary Borders and friends reported they had been raped repeatedly from July-Nov. by an older boy who was later found pictured with Sheriff Gary Borders in the school flyer in July 2009 – at the same time the rapes started. He left the school in in eary Nov. and the boys told the school director he had threatened to kill them and they were afraid for their lives. The school director reported the rapes to 911 and the Lake Sheriff’s Office sent out a deputy who took a report. On Nov. 23, 2009 the school management fired the administrator for calling 911 and reporting the rapes. Sheriff Borders Office assigned the rapes cases to Det Marcie Poitevent who has told some people that sheriff Borders told her to sit on the cases and do nothing. So, she followed orders! She done nothing with these cases. By January 2010 the five boys had a new administrator and house parents. Some of the boys attempted suicide and on more than one occasion the Sheriff’s Office responded to the suicide attempts – still they done nothing for these boys but hold them captive and away from their families. On the afternoon of Feb 3, 2010 at 4:07 PM the new Green Isle Boys Ranch administrator once again dialed 911 to report they had former disgruntled employee’s making threatening calls, texts and email to the office. They reported the former employee’s was Clayton and Angie Berkey. Beginning at 5 PM on that date the Berkey’s was breaking news on all Orlando TV stations with horror stories about the five little boys being held captive at Green Isle after they had reported 75 days earlier that they had been sexually assaulted for over six months by the older boy pictured with Sheriff Borders.
The next day Sheriff Borders put Det Poitevent and a partner and another two person team on the case. In the same report both teams claim to have interviewed the suspect on the same day at two different locations. By Feb. 9th, 2010 Det Poitevent hade faked up a report and filed it with the State Attorney. The FDLE claims the rapist was arrested on Feb. 9, 2010 and pled no contest for four cts of sexual battery, 1 ct of Lewd & Lascivious and 1 ct of Battery. They claim he was sentenced in May 2010 to community control. If so they community didn’t have much control over him because court records in Citrus County, show all kinds of traffic citations and one petition filed against Tyler Anthony Jackson for dating violence just months after his fake arrest, prosecution and sentencing.
So, if Gary Borders doesn’t care anymore about the abuse of the children in the human race what do you think he’ll care about dogs, cats and other animals? Nothing!
Sheriff Gary Borders has been able to skate any responsibility for covering for his little friend the Green Isle rapist and with the help of his powerhouse of friends at the Villages and on up the hill he was able to get the FBI run out of town when they were here in 2009-2010 investigating among other things Borders having Lake Jail inmates delivered to his office for his pleasure.

The good news here is the animal rights activists and animal abuse watchers will be breathing down his neck if he takes the animal shelter to run. They will be watching every move he makes.
Any person who can live with themselves knowing the hell five little boys was going through, trying to commit suicide after having been sexually abused for six months and finally reporting it only to find out the sheriff’s friend was the abuser and won’t be held accountable for his actions and continue to keep them locked up without any medical or mental health treatments, is lower than whale manure and that’s in the bottom of the ocean.

Commissioner Leslie Campione and Lake County Sheriff Gary Borders have had preliminary talks about having the Sheriff’s Office take over the county’s troubled Animal Services department.

Borders said in an email statement:“We are willing to work with the county, but we have not been formally approached to take over animal control.”

Commissioner Sean Parks said he is also open to the idea.
The proposal comes days after the head of the Animal Services division announced her resignation, citing a tight budget and public pressure over the department’s euthanization rate.

Cyndi Nason was the second director of Animal Services to resign within the past year!

Nason and Marjorie Boyd both resigned amid pressure from animal activists who criticized the shelter for what they claimed were too many euthanizations.

“It should be noted that our euthanization rate is way down and yet a small number of people pretty much badgered her out of a job,” Commissioner Jimmy Conner said of Nason’s resignation.

Yea! Jimmy that's what we need! Gary Borders to take over the animal shelter when he can't keep his hands off the boys in the jail or at his now closed boys ranch!

What we need is "a small number of people to pretty much badger Borders out of a job” of sheriff. The job that you as school board chairman with your emails to Jeb Bush helped put this POS in the Sheriff's job to begin with!

Sheriff Borders and his friends run a boys ranch in Clermont for over twenty years. Many of the boys was sexually abused over those years including a 9 year old boy in 2000. His parents hired Keith Mitnik to sue this Green Isle Ranch. The case went before Judge Law whose wife was the Green Isle lawyer and board member at the time. They all conspired to just make it go away.
On Nov. 21, 2009 five boys ages 12-15 reported they had been sexually abused by an older boy who some of the workers at Green Isle identified as a personal friend of Sheriff Borders and they released pictures of him and Borders as proof of that.
Sheriff Borders did not arrest his friend. Instead he kept the five victims at his Green Isle and some of them tried to kill themselves before new house parents got their ordeal on breaking news on local TV. That was after the first of Feb. 2010. Jimmy Conner and his so called Children's Services was involved in helping Borders cover up these rapes. They knew about it and they knew Borders was covering for his little friend.(Google Sheriff Borders Tyler Anthony Jackson) even though they have blown most of the evidence pictures and documents off the internet there is still plenty of evidence to prove Borders did not arrest this perpetrator but instead lied and covered up him. Border own deputies has admitted this, some of them don't like what he done either but they need their jobs.
There are animal lovers and there are children abuse advocates and some times they intermingle. But in the end we are all God's Children animal or human. If this man will allow five sexually abused boys to be held incognito for almost three months even after some had tried to kill themselves how do you think he will treat the animals?
But, in the end it's the animal rights people who are the most vocal and the most protective of animals than those who claim to be of children. Check the so called Children's Organizations it seems every politicians has one or more.
The Fifth Circuit of Florida has KIDS CENTRAL, INC. Funded with million and millions of our tax dollars.
State Rep. Marleen O"Toole has TAKE STOCK IN CHILDREN to which she just funneled millions of tax dollars into forgetting to mention her salary is $50 thousand per year. Then when caught saying Oh that doesn't come from tax dollars!
The Lake County Board of County Commissioner's has:
The Children's Services Council (CSC)it is a 15 member advisory board to the Lake County Board of County Commissioners (BCC). The board consists of two members from each of the five BCC districts; three Members At-Large; one representative from the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF); one representative from the Lake County School Board (LCSB) and one non-voting BCC Liaison. All CSC members are appointed by the BCC to two-year terms with the exception of the BCC Liaison, the LCSB and DCF representatives who each hold one-year terms.
The CSC advises the BCC about children’s issues in Lake County, assists with strategic planning for children and family services, supports local service providers through outreach projects, and provides a forum to exchange ideas and promote partnerships among the providers and citizens through regular monthly meetings. The CSC meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 9 a.m. at the Lake County Agricultural Center, 1951 Woodlea Road, Tavares, Florida.
With all these millions of dollars spent right here in Lake County; just name one child they have saved? JUST ONE!
They did not save from further abuse the young boy whose father reported in a face to face meeting with Sheriff Borders & Chief Grinell that his child's mother was drugging his son and he was being sexually abused by an older step-brother. Mother telling the victim it was OK because they were both gay! Borders protected the mother because she was an employee of his friend and cohort the so called self anointed Lake County god father.

TAVARES – A homicide prosecutor said he was reviewing the Lake County Sheriff’s Office investigation into the death of Gabriel Golden, an infant who died from skull fractures last year in a Leesburg home.
“These can be especially difficult cases to prove,” said Assistant State Attorney Bill Gross, who offered few details about the report completed by detective Mark Knuttila.“They generally rely a great deal on complex medical testimony.”
No charges were filed after the Nov. 3, 2008 death of the 5-month-old boy, although Ashley Baker, 32, one of Gabriel’s caregivers, was identified as “a person of interest” in the case during court hearings that determined who should have temporary custody of two other children living in the Picciola Road home in Leesburg.
Gross said his review of the case could take “months.”
Baker, who declined an interview request, was arrested Jan. 30 on unrelated theft charges and remains in the Lake County Jail.
After Gabriel’s death, the Department of Children and Families issued a report in which the agency admitted its staff had neglected to ensure the baby’s safety. The report said staff had focused too much attention on Gabriel’s biological parents, Andrew and Andrea Golden, and not enough on the caregivers, Tammi and Ashley Baker.

The Goldens were financially unable to provide or care for the child and gave up “all parental rights” to the Bakers on Sept. 3, 2008 according to signed documents obtained by the Orlando Sentinel. See Golden criminal history later in this document.
Before the Bakers agreed to take custody of Gabriel, DCF investigated claims that his biological parents had left him with others for days, had relied on handouts from local churches and were both thinking about joining the military.
But the DCF report also said the Bakers had been investigated at least 14 times on abuse and neglect allegations. Most of the investigations found no wrongdoing on the part of the couple, however.
The DCF report, while noting that Ashley Baker had a lengthy criminal record, also quoted Gabriel’s paternal grandparents as saying “it is obvious that Gabriel is wanted and loved in that house.” Vickie Laabs, Tammi Baker’s mother, said “they all love Gabriel” and fell in love with him when they started watching him.
Two other children in the home at the time of Gabriel’s death remain in the temporary care of others.

Their mother, Tammi Baker, 31, won additional privileges with both children during a hearing last week in Lake County, although Magistrate Heidi Davis reserved judgment on where Tammi Baker’s son and daughter ultimately will reside.
The son, 12, resides with family friends; the daughter, 6, resides in Pensacola with her biological father.
The magistrate warned Tammi Baker that if she is permitted unsupervised visits in her home with the children that Ashley Baker, if released from jail, is not allowed to be around the kids.
Ashley Baker pleaded not guilty last month to charges of burglary and two counts of dealing in stolen property. He is accused of breaking into the home of his stepson’s foster parents, stealing more than $4,000 worth of jewelry, including a keepsake pocket watch, and attempting to pawn stolen goods.

So, what good does it do to have all the CHILDREN'S SERVICES ORGANIZATIONS?

What good does it do a child to be under the auspices of DCF when a Circuit Judged issues an orders denying a petition for protection from Sexual Violence because it was DCF who told the parents to file the petition????

Does this Circuit Judge have something against DCF ???

What if her refusal to issue this order ultimately caused the death of this child ??? Who would the system hold responsible??? As usual absolutely no one! THERE WOULD BE JUST ANOTHER DEAD CHILD.

This is nothing new! On 12/11/2000 DCF Investigator Chester Wood filed LCSO Case # 00099999 regarding the Green isle Boys Ranch including his DCF Abuse Report # 2000-192037 outlying how there had been "several reports of sexual activity between male juveniles at this location during school hours and while they are at their cabins.

Just as always no actions was taken by the Lake County Sheriff's Office and on October 23, 2003 the cases was "exceptionally closed" by Captain Don Gregory because the statute of limitations had expired on the case.

Attention all animal lovers..........

Sheriff Gary Borders confident he can run Lake County Animal Services efficiently

He can’t even run the Sheriff’s Office efficiently – he’s looking for more money all the time!

Borders said this week if given the opportunity to take over Lake County’s Animal Services, he is confident he could run an efficient operation and do a good job. Commissioner Leslie Campione proposed the idea at an April commission meeting! Cyndi Nason and Marjorie Boyd both resigned amid pressure from animal activists who claim the shelter was putting down too many animals.
Brevard County plans to hand over its animal services to the sheriff by Oct. 1, while Bradford, Dixie, Hendry, Martin, Polk, Putnam and Sarasota counties already have such arrangements in place.
Borders said he is traveling all over the state visiting different animal control departments run by sheriff offices. While Borders submitted his proposed budget this week, he said if he takes over Animal Services, his budget would have to be amended. Currently, the county spends $1.4 million on animal services and has 27 employees.

“Honestly there are some challenges the county is going to have to address, whether they run animal control or I run animal control,” he said.“There are building concerns out there. We have to look at their fleet.”
Commissioner Tim Sullivan said he is very interested in seeing the sheriff’s proposal.

“I think he has an organization setup that will be beneficial to animal services and he may be able to do it more efficiently,” he said.

Commissioner Jimmy Conner agreed.“It is pretty obvious there is a lot of improvement that can be done out there,” he said.“I have supreme confidence that he can get the job done.”

Yea Jimmy!“You have had supreme confidence that this pervert can get the job done” since you and the Lake County Bush Mafia gang installed him in the sheriff’s office after the accidental death of his best friend; Sheriff Chris Daniels!

Gary Borders can run the Lake Sheriff’s Office about as good as Obama can run the white house and for all the same reasons.

But the good thing here might just be even though all this gang knows about and some was directly involved in as well - his years of covering up the boys rapes at his GOP sponsored Green Isle Boys Ranch and his inmates delivered to his jail office by ethical, moral employee’s who reportedly described in detail to two FBI Agents in 2009 and the machine protected “their boy” Borders – he’s entering into a whole new realm of reality here. You see, people don’t care how many young boys are sexually abused by monsters as long as it’s not their boys.

But, animal rights activists are a whole new ball game. They truly care about every animal, that animals life and treatment on this earth. And like a moma grisly bear they will devour anything that abused their young. Karma is slow as hell sometimes and maybe just maybe this is what it will take for the honest, ethical, moral (asleep) people around here to see this pervert for what he really is!

When person like Gary Borders who has allowed the brutal rapes of little boys at his Green Isle Boys Ranch and covered up for his little friends like Tyler Anthony Jackson for doing so walks down the isle of any kennel listen to the dogs growl and the hair stand up on their necks and watch the way the cats look at him.

With over $1 MILLION of our tax dollars running through his slimy fingers ever week, he can fool the people, but he can not fool the animals!
abuse for the animals

News of Borders' imminent takeover (of the Lake Animal Shelter) was met with glee by animal advocate Marci Knauss of Mount Dora, who pumped her fist in the air when she heard his plans.
"Overwhelming joy," Knauss said. "There's finally going to be a solution for these animals that don't have a voice."

November 21, 2009 – Green Isle Ranch Executive Director Stephen Zepp calls (911) Lake Sheriff’s Office to report five boys aged 12-15 years have just told him they were sexually abused by an older male student over the summer. The attacker had threatened their lives if they told on him and he had only recently left the school and they felt safe to report the rapes now.

Lake Deputy Sheriff M. Marshall arrived and took a detailed report LCSO Case #(09 191988) including hand written statements from Zepp and the five victims which outlined gross multiply sexual attacks with a weapon and threats of violence if they told. Deputy Marshall also phoned The Abuse Registry Hotline and spoke with Chris ID #5100 who stated she would take a report. Sheriff Gary Borders was active in Green isle for over twenty years and insiders at the ranch circulated photo’s of Sheriff Borders pictured with the rapist Tyler Anthony Jackson in July 2009 (when the rapes started) proving they personally knew each other! Sheriff Borders protected his friend. He covered up the rapes and hoped they would just go away. But that did not happen thanks to disgruntled new house parents! As of Feb. 3, 2010 Borders had done nothing!!!!

February 3, 2010- 4:07 PM - Poitevent’s report states a disgruntled Green Isle house parent Clayton Berkey is making threatening phone calls, emails and texts to the new Green Isle Admin. Paula Whetro. Why was this placed in this rape report? What does this have to do with the rapes that was reported on November 21, 2009?

February 3, 2010- Orlando, Fl – Beginning at 5 PM - Major local breaking news- Clayton and his wife Angie Berkey are on several Orlando major TV networks exposing the fact that five little boys being held at Green Isle Ranch had been brutally raped by an older student over the summer of 2009. He states some of the boys have attempt suicide and Green Isle, it’s parent company Bridges of America and Sheriff’s authorities have done nothing for them. Berkey also discloses a former house parent had exposed himself to the boys and neither of these sex abusers are under arrest for this reported crimes.

February 4, 2010-[Per Sheriff’s report] LCSO goes back to work on this case. With the help of State Attorney Brad King and Circuit Judge Takac; they faked up an arrest, prosecution and probation (community control) but, all the while Gary Borders little rapist friend was on the streets of Citrus County, Fl committing more act’s of violence and creating court and Citrus County sheriff’s records of his activities!
Does anyone with half a brain really believe a person who would cover up the brutal rapes of five little boys by an old boy with whom they are friends is “finally going to be a solution for these animals that don't have a voice?" If you do you have got some serious misunderstandings! And, just in case you want to suggest this was simply an oversight on Gary Borders part. Documentation is available of other child sex abuse crimes reported face to face to Sheriff Borders and Chief Deputy Peyton Grinnell, and they covered that up as well.

Gary Borders has a long history of sexual perversion and covering up the crimes of other like minded persons! The facts are everywhere, but Lake County and it’s officials refuse to admit it.

Lake Counties version of Rosco P. Coltrane must be putting animal control under the supervision of the second least qualified person to run the jail after himself of course. Major Mass has "hand picked" a handful of female inmates to go out to animal control everyday to take care of the animals. I wonder if they take good care of the animals, is Mass going to give them Major days?

And with lightening speed he has done just that. He took over on Oct. 1. 2014 and nine days later his shelter director new hire was fired and on every mob owned media outlet in central Florida, over and over and over. He had both of his PIO experts first James Vachon (aka JAWS) and then Lt. lying John Herrell all suited up like he come from a funeral doing what he does best lying.

Very interesting his part-time HR director and local mob owned propagandist Lauren Ritchie )some call here Borders' sister as well) even chimed in to justify the slaughter of this sacrificial lamb.

She use to be aligned with the women's libbers and was once referred too as the she coon of the women's liberator's, but this time she joined those with swords crossed to protect her messiah and friend Gary Borders.

The new shelter director was hired at the insistence of Chief Peyton Grinnell and Captain Todd Luce. They did not do a background on her just a cursive look at her resume which is exemplary.

Shelter employee Jennifer Ferguson had also applied for the job, but the boys wanted some new and exciting adventure and bang she was hired. then some of this crew found out she had been a whistle blower in Miami-Dade. What was she a a whistle blower for in Miami-Dade?

She complained they were killing too many animals!!!!!!!!!!

You can read that in Lauren's Ritchie's Sentinel article supporting "her friend" Gary Borders for firing this lady.

So run this through your head. Well educated white female has a long history of protecting animals and has worked with animal shelters both domesticated varieties and wild animals as well. They abolished her job in Miami-Dade in March 2014 because she complained - she filed for job protection under the whistle blowers act, but filed to late and received no job protection.

She applied here in lake County and was accepted. She was clueless about Lake County as most outsiders are. Not only did she step into the lion's den with the males gnawing at her - she had Jennifer Ferguson as a direct report to her who detested the sight of her because she didn't get the job.

So she loses her job in Miami-Dade in March 2014 for filing a complaint abou the shelter killing to many animals, she comes to work here for Gary Borders on October 1, 2014 the day he takes over the animal shelter and 10 days later he fires her for killing to many animals.

Florida is a right to work state and unless employee's are protected by other laws like the policeman's bill of right's concocted for no other reason to to protect dirty cops - you employer can fire you at will at any time.

This lady is far better off that Borders and his gang set her up by having Jennifer Ferguson kill all these animals and blame it on her [lying John Herrell said "not matter what it happened on her watch!"]

The problem here is as per usual with this bunch of pervert's just firing someone is never enough for them. They have to do character assassinations to make sure their victims words will never be accepted. In some cases they have even been known to destroy the character of their victims family members just to make sure they don't have the ability to complain about what they have done to their loved ones.

Everybody working around this hell hole should look up in the sky, take a deep breathe and say out loud "there but for the grace of God goes I."

Firing this lady or making the decision that she just wasn't what this gang wanted for a shelter director should have been an internal decision and would have been if it had been made by moral leadership, but for ten days of employment in the hell hole called lake County - this young lady received a week or over of constant media abuse. For that every one involved should have an exceptionally hot corner in hell awaiting then when they make that final journey.
