You are one clueless windbag. You have no idea who I am or what I do, or what I really stand for. You are surmizing. For all you know I am a next door neighbor that you speak to every day and think I am the greatest in real life. You need to edit what you type and go back and change punctuation and grammar, maybe then it will make sense to the rest of us. There used to be a song: "Ignoramous there you are, sitting in your hot-rod car." Written for creeps like you.

The funny thing is that Curt is connected to SEVERAL theft rings, his grandson was busted also not long ago.

Facts:
What about Col. Keith Levan getting busted for having sex with a baby sitter while he was on duty. Yes, he is married and it was not his wife. He got 10 days suspension with no pay.
What about Larry Garwood. He used a M-16 out of the Sheriff's Dept. to shoot up his neighbor's place. He was fired and given a county job.
Sheriff Mike Henry does not even live in Logan County. He lives in Sydney.
Keith Levan has a baby with a black girl in logan county with the last name Johnson.
Stout stole evidence (cartons of cigarettes) from the evidence room, so now they have a new policy of 2 officers at a time in it.
The Schafer family will read that the family could not sell the property and if there was no family members left the properties went to Logan County. Howard Traul just broke the will before the family was killed. So, who really was to benefit from the death of the whole family.
Hows come Kurt Frazier roams the Sheriff's dept anytime he wants and he is a felon.
I can go on for hours, but I know the AG has their own investigation going on about the Sheriff dept. So, I'll let them do the rest.
Godd stuff!

The Moody boy was a violent nut case in high school. The Moody boy was totally guilty. Logan County Detective Jeff Cooper got the case figured out correctly. Get off "Coop's" back. Deputy (former) Jon Stout is my personal friend and got a real bad call from (retired) Sheriff Henry. A simple demerit note in Jon's file should have been enough discipline. Present Logan County Sheriff Andy Smith should beg Jon Stout back to the Sheriff's Deputy job. Jon Stout was fearless in the face of criminals that he brought to justice. Clint Eastwood should make a Hollywood movie about the exploits of (former) Logan County Sheriff's Deputy Jon Stout.(Retired) Logan County Detective Kieth Levan's good service to the citizens of Logan County speaks for itself. Detective Levan was "set up" by a LAWYER!!! my opinion.......m

I thought he was getting his badge back, news flash: The Stout name is s hit in this community.
Daddy Stout needs to clear out of our Court House as the face of justice, a total disgrace on Law Enforcement that family is.
Did he blow his $ 135,000 hush money yet?

I have lived in Logan County most of my life. I have no criminal record, never been in trouble. I have made some very bad choices of who to befriend but the things I have seen is unreal. I was assaulted by a felon.. yes he was a previous boyfriend... but I broke ties with him when he went to jail. The LCSD let him out on a Christmas furlough and he assulted me. When he showed back up at the jail the NEXT morning nothing was done. I made a report, went to the DA and filed charges. Those reports were lost. They would bring him to my house in an orange felony jumpsuit and he would verbally abuse me. I blocked the collect jail number from my phone and he would be allowed to use their desks phone to continually harrass me. I felt I had no choice but to accept this felons presence into my life because I, a law abiding citizen, did not feel protected by those who swore to protect me. Dont get me wrong there are some on the watch. I have had contact with a few outstanding officers. The Stout situation really brings to light what big problems we have here in Logan county. A change is needed. How can you maintian law and order when the the very people that you trust to maintain the law and order are just as corrupt as the criminals? How do you let a judge tour a crime scene? How do you let the accomplice of a murder plea bargin down to a crime unrelated to the stabbing death of a mentally challenged woman? How do you let a judge or a magistrates mood dictate how they rule instead of what is set forth before them? How do you let felons go free just because they tattled on a lesser criminal? Just the things I have seen in the last 10 years from the LCSD and court system has made me lose total faith in any judgement they have set forth. I even wonder now how guilty Rosebrook was.
Thank you!

As I read these articles written by people just like myself . They all see to stem back to the wrong doing of our wonderful LCSD . I know better than anyone how they are ,I have lived it and have the proof to show 20+ years of organized crime . The 3 amigos have been involved in . No one cares !!!!!!!!!! It's in black and white . There has been vehicles transported back and forth from Nebraska and all the sudden the title goes from salvage to clean ? It must be magic . It is hard for me to imagine our LCSD has a felon /cop calling the shots .The only reason it has not hit them in the face is due to not enough funding to arrest and transport the criminals . How can that be ?? The State fire martial in Nebraska is chomping at the bit . But the Prosecutor is broke , Oh yea if your a cop you can have stolen equipment on your property . Logan Co law only you must check out the laws in your County to see if you qualify .
Do tell more I think folks might actually listen now.

Many. many years ago I was witness to stout being a bully and taunting someone he thought he could scare.He had no regard for this person. And was mostly interested in terrorizing them.. It was chilling to look in his eyes.
As the years passed I heard snippets of his activities.The thought that he was on the LCSD was not a surprise. The fact that he was screwing around on his wife, rumors that he planted evidence..it all made sense. Then the stories about the teenagers...another chapter in the legacy of LCSD.
But then came the Shafer murders. And lo and behold...they had their shooter..and he was an 18 yr old well liked farm kid . But wait, the survivor, his sister,, a witness said he didn't do it. And then there was him shooting himself twice...in the head..with a rifle.. and then there were rumors of the sheriff's department moving evidence and not allowing the survivor's sister to be with her as she was bleeding to death. And who was first on the scene??????? yup. our lil nasty bad boy.
Quite frankly, after all the other murders in this county, and all the extenuating circumstances
that persisted in each case...and never a believable conclusion... This was just gonna be SOS.. and to my disgust..the case was closed by the prosecutor. Our fine newspaper simply reported it was closed and that was it.
Oh there was the state and the FBI and a minor shaking at LCSO, and actually the sexual misconduct eclipsed the actual murders and the ridiculous way they were investigated...so maybe he is a scape goat at some level. But... I think he will be protected because they are afraid of his knowledge. Some say he did it..I don't know..I really have nothing to form an opinion on who killed those people. I don't think he would kill an entire family over another inappropriate relationship. Or maybe that is just too horrific to get my brain around.
I don't think he has a fan list, I think he surrounds himself with a group of like minded narcissists that really don't seem to care.
Stacy knows she is loved and supported. But kids that are molested and used for pleasue by adults are scarred forever. Her stepping forward was a huge step in her recovery. Too bad he is getting away with it. How that must hurt.
Stacy is the saint.. Stacy came forward and said help!! here are the facts, please. And what happens... murders, rape, inappropriate relationships.. all come down to this guy peeing the a parking lot with a 16 yr old girl in his cruiser. He will walk. And the narcissistic punk will then strut around as if nothing happened.
I would give up coffee before I ever bought a cuppa from Wammes. I will always ask how Heaton closed a case so quickly when his emplyees's husband was a person of interest, I am not saying he was wrong..I just want to know why?
I am no saint...ask mad bull
Scapegoat was Joe. Doesn't anyone see the patterns?

If you really do work there, you know the crap going on out there and are only defending it because you have become morally inadequate dealing with those crooks. Shame on you.
