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.

"A friend of a friend". Sounds about right! And we are all just supposed to believe this. When will this mud slinging end??

@ Mr. Harold Marable, It has just been brought to my attention that a friend of a friend of mine had to call 911 and was transfered to a deputy to take a "phone report".  While this person was talking to the deputy he started snoring and was not responding to the questions.  She called 911 back and they tried to reach him by radio but he did not respond.  I contacted another friend that is a JP and he told me that the deputy was found to be at his home after reporting in for duty and was not even in uniform.  He also told me that he was found to be on drugs.  Who was this deputy and what has the Sheriff done about this issue?  This occured very recently...

I personally do not need Mr. Scott at my home for any reason.  I also think that this activity would destroy his credibility on the witness stand in any case where he has arrested someone for a crime.  I want clean law enforcement in my county...yes Evan I love my county also (Grin).

Out if line Mr. Glenn? RIGHT! being green has nothing to do with anything! Ms. Ives seems to be a very miserable person! Only someone like that would set out to personally ruin some mans life! You are entitled to your own opinion just like me! She will answer for her actions one day! Who is she or anybody else to judge Mr. Scott! I really hope you all need him someday, maybe then you will realize the sacrifice he makes for ALL of us!! You are all pathetic, miserable people! Thanks Chris!!

@ chris -- I accidently deleted your last post trying to copy and paste it -- I apologize. You actually made the same point in it that  I wish to make.  I have not destroyed Scott's life -- I did not commit the acts that I have posted documents on, he did it to himself.  You mention the "former corrupt LEO that I so happily associate with" -- the only difference in them and Scott is that they are not delusional in thinking that they are ENTITLED to work in law enforcement just because they want to.

Kate's words are also no more out of line than Ms. Ives'. The woman is literally trying to destroy a man's life so her candidate will win.

That's low.
Comment by Peter Glenn on May 17, 2012 at 4:03pm

Not charged with anything that he was found guilty of?  Weren't there witnesses according to the report? That's like saying John Edwards may be found innocent of the charges, but we still know that we were all lied to by him.

Katie, I want to thank Linda Ives for bringing this to our attention. The attitude of those associated with the sheriff's office has really made me think about this whole thing and for that I thank Linda Ives.  I will no longer be oblivious to the problems.  Your comments TO HER were out of line.  You sound a little green so maybe you need to give it a few years and experiences.

So now you are saying not to listen to the uniformed (Law Enforcement) ? Is that because they are uninformed ? This flip flopping stuff seems to be the theme of the Sheriff's campaign.

Comment by Harold Marable on May 17, 2012 at 1:27pm

@ John M Cooper. R.Scott is one of the administrators there are three more. Two: check the date when it was started: 3 It was started by us not the Sheriff to show our support 4 Check your facts please and do your own thinking don't let uniformed people do it for you . 5 R Scott has Not been charged with anything and found guilty. 6 When this is over I would hope everyone will try and work together.
