I have long been concerned about whether or not our sheriff's, past and present, run a background check on the officers they hire.  In a recent meeting with Mike Frost, this topic came up.  I questioned whether it made sense to have a detective who had been arrested in the past for selling drugs out of a Benton PD squad car.  In response to my question, I was given a sermon on forgiveness. 

Likewise, the fact that another current employee, who appears  to be an administrator of Pennington's Bruce4Sheriff website, also has a "checkered" past.  I just don't understand how you can expect respect for an administration that doesn't mind that their deputies have a criminal background. 

For Henry, who does not like to read documents, I will summarize:

On July 18, 2005, Richard Scott, Saline County Deputy Sheriff, was arrested for 3rd degree domestic battery.  The investigating officer wrote in his report that Scott was drinking at a bar in Little Rock where his X-wife was a waitress.  Scott wanted her to enter a wet shirt contest and she refused.  He became angy and punched her in the left eye where she had visible injuries.  The officer states that Scott was visibly intoxicated.  He was transported to jail.

@ John. I'm ready. Lets hear it. I hope its better than all the other half truths and lies being told by Wards supporters. true story EJ Harris and James Ward stopped by my fathers home because my dad is a registered voter with a Pennington sign in his yard. He was told by Ward personally that he worked Patrol under Judy Pritchard it was my.understanding he had no actual law enforcement training. My father would not lie and has no reason to. He said he enjoyed his conversation with both men and that they were very personable however he did tell Ward that on the day he early voted Ward was there and never acknowledged him due to his back being turned to the crowd entering.the church

@ John you never responded to my post puppet master or did we forget to pull your string
Comment by Harold Marable on May 16, 2012 at 8:06pm

John you never answered Brad. Do you know the Lord as your Saviour? Also your rhetoric is so redundant. You sound like a half truth broken record.Very rarely should anyone respond to a supposed adult that hides so to speak behind a womans skirt( alias) and never presents proof in writing much be a man and stand by what you say by signing your name .This is why I very rarely respond to you

@John Pubis---Lighten up I understand your fustration level as the truth is coming to the top and your half truths are sinking.  Since Bruce has taken office he and the rest of the Administrator of LE in the county have banned together to assist each other in communication, education and assistance to help serve the county and the citizens in the best way possible,

So your comment about Saline County asking Benton PD for STATS is just a pathetic attempt to blow smoke and use mirrors to cover your inability to speak the truth.

Again, phone reports are needed and are of value when an item needs to be entered into ACIC quickly.  I would take an educated guess and say about August or September Ward will be going back to the QC for additional GAS money and vehicle repairs because you want to meet and greet every caller.  Good for you John, Good for you.  Wise choice.  Yep the QC will love this.  Tax the citizens of Saline county cause Ward is not staying within budget.  Bruce has.  The citizens of Saline county understand phone reports and the need for them.  You my friend are clueless but your opinion is noted.
