Chief Barnes not only should have been suspended, but suspended without pay. There has been on going police brutality, corruption, discrimination and race based hate in the Zephyrhills Police Department far too long. When Chief Barnes was hired in 2003 I was confident that he would weed out the officers who didn't have the will of all of the people at heart. Chief Barnes did an about face and joined the ranks of the corrupt, disrespectful, hate mongers and started looking the other way and playing video games on his "work" computer and not following the proper procedure for making purchases for the department. Certain officers are out of control with no direction. I am a firm believer that if you cut off the head.....the tail will follow. Michael O'Donovan, Linda Wright-Love, Jeffrey Hupp, Neal Pellitier, Gary Smith, Ofc. Beson, Just to name a few of the most disrespectful, hateful and discriminatory policeman ever and they continually exhibit behaviors unbecoming and unfit to be police officers. A through psychological exam needs to be in place on a constant basis because something is amiss. Get rid of these "wanna be's", bring back Belasic where ever he is and let this city be a city for all of the people, not some of the people and guarantee equal protection under the law.

Charlie Crist needs to declare a state of emergency in the City of Zephyrhills and order the national guard to take over the " Police Department" because they out of control and they think they are above the law. An internal investigation needs to be done not only with the Chief and Perrault but the entire department, including record clerks, dispatchers, etc. Steve Spina can't handle these misfits. I am patiently awaiting the outcome of this investigation so that I may present evidence to the world that will once and for all shed light on this travesty.
