Bearing in mind all the statutory authority the Sheriff holds I'm a little curious to see how everyone feels about this.
HousingCop said:Usually here in Massachusetts, it's the other way around. You usually are elected Sheriff then later on you become a convicted felon. Why is this guy bucking the trend??
Your exactly right is usually is the other way around it is kind of ironic these guys are even trying such a task. Sounds like a case of the guy pissed off at city hall so he decides to run to attempt to make a difference.
This really shouldnt surprise anyone does anyone here know of any other convicted felons who are on the job or in a position of authority? MUMs the word here but I will say this I know of an SO that has someone on there very very high payroll and position who's a convicted felon, I wont say what county or who it is but my point is ...... Well you know what I'm getting at.
Thats a very interesting point Pearl, do you have any more info on how that works ie any MGL or is that a dept policy. I guess if the felon is elected he can work from Home? YA gotta love this state. I'm shocked theres no bylaw that prevents this from happening.PearlOnyx said:Theoretically, if elected the Sheriff could the Sheriff legally enter the facility? There are restrictions in this state on convicted felons entering correctional facilities.
As our little poll has proved (2 members of a Law Enforcement board voting to allow a freaking felon to be a Sheriff), intelligence is NOT a requirement to vote ANYWHERE.Otto said:I guess we are in the hands of the "good judgement" of the electorate.
