Today Commandant Dan Tanoos was at North High School. He arrived around 4pm. He parked his police prepared Durango right in front, in the Fire Lane. A running THPD marked with light on guarded his vehicle as he exited. The THPD car stayed, lights on the entire time he was there, guarding his ride. His Highness was escorted by (I swear) three identically suited guards with Blue Tooth headsets and sunglasses (indoors) to an area roped off inside the school. The halls leading to his location were blocked by large portable mesh screens. You have got to be kidding me. How long are we to continue this behavior to protect a county employee because of his lack of morals? Or, is he so self important that he asks for this type of coverage? Why do WE have to pay for this? Why do we coddle this thug? What the hell kind of city/county do we live in where the Mayor can go to Chavas but the guy working across the street has guards?

I've saw King Dan do that kind of crap before too. In fact more than a few times. It's the end results of a small town corrupted with police state morals, fixed elections, and insane police personnel.
Things like that are why everyone constantly says that Terre Haute is corrupt and it's only going to get worse until it changes. I think that Tanoos should be in prison personally (or at least a mental hospital)

His jackass behavior will continue until the School Board understands HE works for them AND they are his bosses. He has somehow corrupted their thinking because they believe they work for him. Do your part by voting out the current school board. The majority of them have severe conflicts of interest because their spouses work for the corporation. he is a Tzar and no one crosses him without suffering the consequences.

As a non vigo county school corporation employee or relative of Danny Tanoos, I take offense to the bashing that goes on and the comments made by people who I believe have a negative misconception of the job he does and how he behaves. I would like to point out that at a school function, the police you say are bodyguards, are most likely officers who are placed at the school for the students safety. You may also not be aware that he is a volunteer deputy and is close friends with most of the officers in vigo county. The guy does a great job, works endless hours, and our kids score above state and national standards on testing protocols. His pay is half of what superintendents in other counties make. He is flamboyant sure, but not corrupt or power hungry. You all need to know the facts, because the comments you make are completely negative opinions blown out of proportion.

It is NOT safe for him to even be around Student's if he has to be protected in such a manner! Absolutely RIDICULOUS! Who does he think he is anyway?? Doesn't look real good when a School Superintendent can't even walk into a School building without Body Guards! Do you think that's safe for our Student's?? SERIOUSLY??Maybe you can let us all know how many other Superintendent's have to be catered to in such an manner with Personal Body Guard's!! Get a Grip IT IS WHAT IT IS!!

School Board------Alpa Patel, not sure what her deal is, but thought when she was elected she would be the voice of reason. NOT, she has fallen to his level.
Tammy Pearson, husband was hired as a P.E. teacher after she was elected.
Mel Burks, that speaks for itself.
Paul Lockhart, former educator in another town. Actually surprised at him. Always thought he was a stand up guy.
Tom Thomas, wife Jenny Thomas head of Vigo Co. School. Foundation and sister of a principal.
Pat Sheehan, former employee and engaged(?) to Christi Fenton director of elementary education.
Jackie Lower, former educator at North and just sort of "out there" in la la land.
Those are HIS bosses and they are doing a piss poor job of managing their employee and the public' s employee. That's it folks. Nepotism at its best!

I second what you say. I had to pick my daughter up for a dentist appointment a couple of weeks ago. When I arrived, Mr. Tanoos was arriving also. There was no bodyguard or officers with him. I think some of you sit around and make this stuff up out of jealousy.

Well, I saw it all. I was sitting in the front lot waiting to pick up my Daughter. When I saw this going on I became concerned for HER welfare as she was in the building. I immediately headed for the door. I followed him in and was "noticed with prejudice" by his guards. If at that time, I had known all of this was about him I would probably be in jail right now for the hell that I would have raised. This has happened before. 40mph across the lot, parked on the sidewalk with police escort and rushed into the building when we were lucky enough that Steve Weatherford showed he was a stand up guy by coming back to TH. You people defending this thug are star gazers and are sucked in by his self imposed celebrity which is utterly ridiculous. He is a joke, the bad part is he doesnt even know it.

It is part of his narcissistic behavior disorder. No, he doesn't see it, but everyone else with a brain sees it.

Wow...I would be concerned for my childs safty if this is going on at Vigo Co. schools.
Sounds like he has a monster after him or something, does he have around the clock security at his home as well?
He does look like one of those camel jocky terrorists, maybe hes the one being watched.
Conspiracy theories abound.

Perhaps it's for affect when he arrives at the schools?
He's usually late and so makes a drama entrance. Bodyguards and light bars stun spectators into submission.

Tanoos is a beautiful man. I love the way he dresses and pulls off that cool mysterious way about himself. We need Tanoos, he puts the cool in our schools:)I dont care what kind of creepy stuff goes on behind the scenes, the school board says hes ok so I stand behind them.

I agree, I've seen him around town with no escort or bodyguards. I'm not saying these stories are made up, but it wouldn't make sense to take all the time and effort to have guards if sometimes they aren't around. I saw him walking by first financial on wabash a couple of weeks ago.....alone.
I saw him and his wife shopping at Meadows shopping center a couple weeks back...no bodyguards there either.

You can get in trouble for revealing his whereabouts. I am glad that he took some time to be with his OWN wife for a change.
