  2. Yes, I just saw the article and left this comment there:

    Gee, what is this? JONES said that HE said that he didn't do it, there is no mention of the victim, the sheriff won't pick up the phone, and the prosecutor won't explain. Stinks.

  3. I just was notified about your site. I myself am in law enforcement. Being in law enforcement as long as I have,over 20 years, I know many people who are charged with this crime are found guilty because there is definite proof that an assault occurred, along with any additional charges. But those in law enforcement, be it male or female, know we are unfairly targeted by former girlfriends or boyfriends and spouses. They know how to get us where it hurts the most. That is our jobs and reputation. Wrong is wrong. In this case I know for sure he was treated badly and I have personally worked along side him for years. At what point does it become slander. I believe you need to at least put on your post that he was acquitted. That is the responsible thing to do, just as if he were to be found guilty.

  5. I apologize. It was the attitude. I track at least 3000 cases and it's so simple to send me a link like you did instead of be rude. The blurb above the comment box throughout this blog says "Please email updates to..."

    It's that easy, and I'm that welcoming of updates.

    UPDATE:
    Former deputy acquitted on misdemeanor charges
