When will it end? He was in the first days of his term, so he should be excused for not knowing RIGHT from WRONG? If there is no record, then no dirty deed was done, is that it? NO WAY!!

Even if the RECORD is expunged, it still happened and the citizens of Gloucester will not forget. I voted for Sheriff Gentry, and he continues to disappoint. This is no doubt the kind of advice the foul four is picking up at those NACO seminars: How to get your record erased once you've shafted your constituents.

Thanks Matt, and WELCOME HOME!

What are the odds that the foulest unethical four will get in line behind Gentry to get expunged?

Hmmm, Matt's story seems factual, ethical, 51% complete. Could he have learned a lesson at seminary about lying being bad?

Nah, Matt is right on time. Gentry KNOWS his involvment with THIS ongoing mess is going to HURT his election. And I disagree with "clean slate" status, lessons learned, let it stand.

Well, why don't you fill us in on the remaining 49% of the story since you think it was incomplete!?

lesson learned -seaford.....:)

I know you have issues with Matt and the DP.
Here is an idea, why not sit down with Matt or whatever, and find out HOW FAR he can go with his articles? Matt is a VERY trust worthy Man. And that is another factual revelation.

When I have issues with people, I get down to the brass tacks and FIND OUT what I need to know.
If I remain unsatisfied with a response, I back off, or ride the storm out, by fact finding, if it still bothers me.

Simple logic. OK?

Bill it wouldn't make any difference as you don't have the mental capacity to know one way or the other. You apparently didn't learn your lesson.

The Gentry may get the court to expunge his indictment from his criminal history.

After all, we should expect a 30+ year police "professional" to know the Constitution.

But how does he intend to supress what everybody already knows? How can he prevent "Free Speech"? The story is already documented multiple times in the news media. Will Gentry try to silence them?

It seems that one who was so cavalier with basic search & seizure laws would have no problem using his police power to force local citizens into shutting up about his indictment.

I agree completely! Gentry has done nothing but continue to disappoint. I heard that he has lost accreditation for his agency. This was something Robin Stanway brought that raised the standards of how the department operated and made it more professional. Gentry seems to be taking the sheriff's department backwards 30 years. What a dolt!

Well,in my honest opinion, he might have competition, I don't know, but, this event will not leave the buds of folks minds.

I will give RS credit, he did have a good handle on things going on. R.I.P.

But, for Gentry attempting to expunged, the world already knows about it. It should have been done last year imo. No biggie, the area knows what went down. Vote well is all I can say.

Of course he'll be excused from his charges. The political inbreds are all soft on officers committing crimes.

I believe the first chargers were ordered before Stanaway left office. I could be wrong, but that was what I was told.
