Pennington has brought nothing to the table in four years.  He has not added any new deputies during his tenure.  No technology, no money savings and no new control of the jail. 

Really?  John, research your half truths PRIOR to coming onto a blog and making a complete fool of yourself.  Let repeat again:

1. Sheriff Pennington gave back to the Saline County General fund over $1,600,000.00 in the last three years from his budget (wasteful spending)?

2. Countywide crime last year was down by 9% overall including drug arrests.

3. Saline county has one of the lowest violent crime rates per capita.

4. Child predator cases are also down due to over exposure and criminals going underground more and using other avenues to find victims. Law enforcement (common knowledge)

5. Obtained grants for Victim Advocates for domestic violence.

6. Established an Explorer Post for our youth

7. Set up Commissary in jail, raises $50,000.00, which is used for jail operations

8. Saves $25,000.00 per year by buying bread locally for detainees

9. Has established a positive working relationship with local elected officials and law enforcement in county

10. Ensuring all jail employees attend jail standards course

11. Received grant for $96,000.00 for cameras in patrol cars

12. Provided G.E.D. classes for detainees

13. Bought two Hummers for Special Response Team, and Search ad Rescue, paid for by the Communications fund at now cost to the tax payers

14. Upgraded the Reserve Deputy Program

15. Awarded 2010 "Sheriff of the Year", by the Arkansas State Fraternal Order of Police

16. New deputies were added to the Detention Division and Civil Division

17. Jail out of Control ?????

18. Sheriff received greatest compliment of endorsement of peers in career field


Your comment of Bruce DIDN'T return any money back into the General Fund is amusing.  Bruce could have kept the money and spent it on other items that were approved within that account OR just DOUBLED up on items and spent all the money.  No John, Bruce DID return money back inot the General Fund for others to use.  Great Job Bruce.

Now Bruce hasn't done much in the drug bust area.  Hummmmm you are wrong again, John.

Mrs Brown is the sheriffs step daughter?  sheriff sends family here to trash and threaten those who support ward then runs back to daddy and whines.

John Cooper, thank you for posting these articles.  Gina Reynolds has come on several times mentioning problems in the jail and these articles put some of it together.  When someone is arrested it is more of a law enforcement issue, but when someone is put in the jail it then also becomes a custodial issue or responsibility.  That is one of the reasons I think someone with administrative and management experience is needed.  And Mr. Pickett, "a common citizen of the county"??? Really???

Im a common citizen of the County.....never gave my endorsement for this. Never gave my endorsement to any candidate. This is just plain wierd....jealousy is a very bad thing, it can blacken your heart and make you do bizarre things. Sir, this is going a tad overboard, show some tact. God bless you sir.

Thats correct the Jail remains out of control even to the point where an inmate (Unsurpervised) walks away from work detail on the court house lawn just last week.  And by the way the inmates need to working all over the county not just the courthouse (supervised of course).

Mr. Tell, You said... Jail Out of Control???

This alone discredits your entire post becasue you guys keep covering for each other...towing that line for Kirk Lane and the FOP (Friends of Pennington).  Here is the out of control part that cost taxpayers almost a cool MILLION so far under Mr. Pennington.

Nothing I have said is hearsay. Which brings up another trait you people share. Hearsay good when it benefits you, bad if it doesn't. Hypocrites. And you know many well what I'm talking about in regards to the DMV since its you who actually looks mysaline members up if you disagree with them.
