Hell John Merchant should have been at the top of that list! Inquiring Minds did you make this?? How could you have forgot the most corrupt Detective in Putnam? Not that it matters but thats not how you spell Peters first name. His momma was on good pain meds when she tried to spell it. Its really wierd like Jehonathan I think. And what exactly is his deal anyways? I havent heard anything bad about him? Not defending him either just curious.

Peters is actually a good guy. He got where he is because of Parker, but overall, he is a good guy. Merchant is a POS...He got his job because his parents were personal friends with Taylor Douglas. Over all, he's a loud mouth, pussy.No guts or balls to speak of. He really bitched up when he found out his former wife was cheating on him, and basically looked the other way. As for the poll...all of the above.

Joe Wells was fired from Palatka PD for falsifying official documents, removed from certified law enforcement positions 2x at St Johns Cty Sheriff's Office, the last time he had a choice - dispatch or termination. Sheriff Perry stated he had no credibility in law enforcement - hmmm and now he is a Sgt for Putnam? Bowling is a liar who thinks he can intimidate people, I could go on and on about the administration - they truly are corrupt, I thought this stuff only happened in the movies!

With his wife being arrested a few weeks ago, he should of been fired like the correctional officers wife that was fired when he burnt his truck. There is no way Peters didn't know his wife was dealing pain pills. How did she explain all the extra cash? I know she worked at a local credit union and they don't make that much money. From what I was told the prescriptions were in his name. I guess what saved him is the fact he turned his wife in after months of reaping the rewards of her illegal business.

Wow! I didn't know all that about Wells, but my first impression of him was not a good person. Who does he know or blows at the SO to work there if Sheriff Perry stated that? Bowling is a hypocrite and I wouldn't spit on him if he were on fire. A man of God he claims, but cusses like a sailor. The administration is corrupt as it gets. Granted there has always been problems at the SO under other sheriff's and administrations, but Hardy's control is by far the worst. I've asked this before and no one answered...can a sheriff be impeached?

Merchant still needs to be held acoountable for bilking the overtime budget. Everybody said that the drug units overtime cam from when, he was fighting with his wife, and call everyone into work. If some one were to talk with all the ex drug unit guys, they would find that this overtime they were called out for was just Merchant playing. No need to have spent that money and itis in the 10's of thousands.

They have been seperated as of late. I mean before this happened. From my understanding she was using more so than dealing.

Well that explains a lot. There were rumors of Officer Peters being seen with other women. Still...why did he wait so long? I saw her a couple months ago and my first thought was...skinny and then when she spoke to me you could tell she was under the influence of something.

I know from experience if you tell the truth and you're honest, there's no place for you at the sheriffs office.

Isn't that the truth. I know of two officers who either quit or were fired in the past month because they believed and fought for what was right.
There are currently two officers in the correction division with 17 pending charges of dealing in stolen property. These two are part of the good ole' boy system, do you think they have been fired? NO! Not under an internal investigation either.

Sheriff Hardy needs to follow Baker Sheriff Joey Dobson's idea as to making all his deputies get out and mingle with the public. YES GET OUT AND TALK TO THE PEOPLE. Pisser and Crash won't do that as it means driving some of the dirt roads we have here in Putnam Co. OH if only my prayers would be answered... Hey Jeff Read the paper and see what others are doing.

Just in...newly appointed Sgt...Michael Pinner, his Lt.(but not his brother) and a C/O was joy riding in the Sheriff's Office golf cart last night when they had a mishap, landing the C/O in the emergency room and the other two injuried. Oh...and the golf didn't survive! This will surely cost the SO money, but who will take the fall for this horseplay? I'm sure "big brother" Lt. Rob Pinner will once again step in and smooth things over for Michael. With Michael being fired twice for sleeping on the job...did he fall asleep again?
