Sooooooooo , doesn't the Sentinel think the DA's office deserves the same critical investigation that was given the Guetzloe Papers and Doug Guetzloe and Ax-The-Tax....? This is rather BLAND coverage of something that is truly horrible in our society and Central Florida in general. Where are the investigative reporters now???? DA's assistant commits suicide....no press....DA's investigator and assistant is arrested on child porn charges....zero coverage. Wake up Central Florida....the DA and the sentinel are buds, and now they once again are covering for the DA's office. The DA should be presecuting to the fullest any child porm charges. One wonders if the DA himself was aware of this going on IN HIS OFFICE maybe even ON HIS and the STATE's Computers....? Maybe there is more to this than even the Sentinel wants to report. Where is the public outcry....?...wake up people!....this is horrible stuff and it is right on the radar screen of any investigative reporter who has any guts. It is time to have a state-appointed outside investigation of the DA's office, a suicide of his assistant, guns being used in shootings, and now his #1 investigator who arrested Doug Guetzloe....? Wake up too on APOPKA.....another APOPKA connection since Peters worked for that Police Department! What is going on here? Do all "roads lead to Apopka or something like that?" NOW- I ask a serious question. WHICH OFFICE WOULD YOU WANT YOUR CHILDREN HANGING AROUND? The DA's office .....the Sentinel maybe ....or Doug Guetzloe's office??? Mine would go to Doug Guetzloe's office FIRST, at least I know safe places when I see them. Attention Central Florida....do not "take your children to work" at your DA's office!

I understand your outrage at the crime itself, but why are you blasting the Sentinel. Believe me, I'm not a big fan of the liberalism often shown by The Sentinel. But in this case, they covered the story, and it appears they provided the reader with all the relevant facts and details. Would you rather have them spice up the article with opinions and conjecture?

Isn't it funny how news reporters mention DOUG GUETZLOE ooo. As if he is somehow a corrupting influence on the people who are so stellar "TOP INVESTIGATOR" etc.

Do you notice people surrounding the Orange County Expressway Authority are almost mafiaistic? Yikes.

Merritt Island State Representive peeking over a restroom stall at another man who was going to the toilet, entered the same stall and made a gross deal for $20 dollars and it turned out the guy was an undercover officer working a beat at a park in close proximity to that particular restroom.

Dear Sentinel Staff: Are you going to give this all of your gusto, like you have been doing to Guetzloe? Or, are you going to be more like the News Agency Tass and Pravda Newspaper of the old Communist Russia, cover up the story with trivia. What will you do?

Lamar, apparently is involved in COVER-UP just like he was when he let Mayor Dyer off, or he failed to find any fault in the "Insider Trading" of Mayor Crotty and Carter, during Bible Study.

SENTINEL, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR A LOT OF THE SUSPECTED CORRUPTION AND APPARENT DISHONESTY AND THE WRONG DOINGS OF THE ELECTED.

BECAUSE YOU DON'T LET THE PEOPLE KNOW BOTH SIDES OF AN ISSUE IN ORANGE COUNTY. YOU HELP
COVER-UP FOR THE ELECTED.

IS THE SENTINEL GETTING A TAX BREAK? OR WERE THEY ABLE TO AVOID CLEANING UP THE TOXIC CONTAMINATION IN THE LAKE.

NOW YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO HELP CLEAN UP OUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT, BY PRINTING ALL OF THE TRUTH. DO THE AMERICAN THING, BECOME AN
"HONORABLE RAT FINK" AGAINST THE ELECTED.

The State Attorney's office-what a bunch of stellar people led by an individual with the people's interest at heart-yeah right.
Now let's see-I can sleep better at night knowing that citizens o Orange county's first amendment rights are being prosecuted and my mailbox is safe from matters of public record-however it's children are being bought and sold for perversions by the States Attorney's office sworn to protect them using my tax dollars to do it.
Good job Lawson (lawless Lamar). Why don't you check your own house and execute the duties of your office under the same scrutiny that you attack your political opposition. Oh, not a good idea, you probably would be disbarred. God save us. How long before the next election?

a postscript...I see where Peters has an Ocoee stop in his career. It would be interesting to see who was the main force behind hiring him as well as in Apopka ie. who were his references and why did he leave Ocoee after 6-7 months.

A look at his applications could reveal a treasure trove of info and maybe shed some light on your Ocoee situation. You never know Dan

An honest straightforward person in public service is like a young child lost in the mall.The culture is basically operating at life-support mode.Its fearfully close to the level of the Soddam-Gommorrah city-state that got nuked by the Maker not so long ago. But the biggest losers are the scribes (newspapers) who report after the fact,turned tabloid and fighting to reach a public incapable of reading comprehension 101. I have never cried out for a spiritual revival before in my life.But this is the only hope outside of a real revolution and captivity for 70 years. Forgive my misspellings and run on sentences-flunked the course,too.

I have never noticed any articles about Lawson Lamar. I found a blog site on him:

http://lawsonlamartruth.com/truths

The article from WFTV is there too, along with a lot of articles dating back to the early 80's about the career of Lawson Lamar. You can post there too.

Two employees (former employees) posted articles about their experiences working in Lawson Lamar's office and the type of atmosphere existed (exists) there to this day.

Wait a minute -- These must be blogs from Guetzloe himself!! Remember when Guetzloe warned Lamar not to go after these people (Expressway, Lowndes Drosdick, etc.) because they were bigger than him....

This latest episode is all too creepy and I wonder if these odd coincidences are neutralizing Lawson Lamar's investigation of the Expressway and Guetzloe scandal.

Here is one more example of a high profile investigator who has been eliminated from his position.

First there was the strange death of Chief Investigator Scott Pignone, then sudden apparent heart attack and death of Seminole Deputy Clerk, a key witness against Guetzloe and now this breaking news about Sean Peters.

I don't believe this story about Sean Peters. Why would a smart, rising star investigator risk his career over child porn? Could it be that someone else sabotaged his computer b/c he was getting too close to explosive damaging evidence?

Why isn't the Sentinel investigating and further reporting on all of those escrow checks sent to Guetzloe from the Lowndes Drosdick law firm? Was there more to that story? Will we ever know?

The general public is not believing this story about Sean Peters -- another victim of Central Florida big government thugsters!

As a former police detective in a prosecutor's office In New York City, I am dismayed the news media is not given sufficient coverage to this scandal in the state's prosecutors office.

An ancient writer wrote these words two thousands years ago:

" He knows about everyone, everywhere. Everything about us is bare and wide open to the all seeing eyes of our living God; nothing can be hidden from him to whom we must explain all that we have done." Hebrews 4:13; The Living Bible.

Lawson is corrupt

This is not the first time Lawson and his office have been under Federal investigation and according to some folks downtown there is a lot more to the current Federal investigation than just the child porn charges. Lawson was under criminal investigation for official corruption by Federal US Attorney Bob Merkle not once but twice.
Lawson Lamar is as corrupt an individual as you find in public office. Just ask those that have worked for him.
The unfounded attacks on Guetzloe and his integrity have failed, once again. Guetzloe fights on for the people against the downtown special interests and the Sentinel.
Go Doug! Ax more taxes.

Ha Ha Ha. You're cracking me up. If Lawson were so corrupt, why would he be chasing Guetzloe, Corruption King? Ha Ha!!! Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Former investigator named in porn probe -

No one can expect things any differently with the truly lack of morality in this local culture - only more of the same rise in blatant crime will be the outcome. Also, when one rotten apple is found near the top, there will always be multitudes more nearer the bottom.

Investigate all their computers, but hurry...

Isn't is time government cleaned up it's act ?
Let's have an independent source investigate
Lawson Lamar's office, the Expressway Authority, and our police departments. This is like La La Land. The fox is the one auditing the hen house. We have more corruption and wasted taxes, then cry because we need to check the infrastructure and cut programs for the needy. What kind of power trip are you people on ?
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to notice the guy likes child porn and worked at schools.
I don't care who's side you are on.
Let's change the picture..re-elect no one.
All you ever do here is re-elect the same players for different offices and wonder why nothing changes.
