Mr. Pennington needs just one more term to get a full retirement from the citizens of Saline County.  What has he done to earn a continued paycheck on the backs of the taxpayer? 

  • Burglaries have not been investigated (all reports taken over the phone)
  • Drug arrests are down 68%
  • Bruglary rate is 50% higher than the national average
  • Internet predator arrests are down 95%
  • Jail remains out of control and ranks #1 in death and abuse cases
  • Has pending class action lawsuit for requiring inmates to pay a warrant fee even after he was warned to stop by not only an attorney but by an attorney generals opinion
  • No new deputies in 20 years have been added and he has done nothing to come up with a solution to change this aspect (43,000 new residents in same time period and sheriff budget is 6 times higher during same time period) ***Where is the money going?***
  • No new technology has been added with the exception to kiosks being added to the jail pods for inmates to send emails out (WOW)
  • Several new dodge chargers have been destroyed under his watch
  • The reserve program has become a spot for political appointees (List of reserves will be at bottom)
  • Illegally appointed three quorum court members to the reserve program
  • Lost the 309 program after they were caught drinking and having sex in the visitation room
  • Jail continues to fail inspection regarding trianing that is required by law
  • Purchased three luxury SUV's (Tahoes) on the backs of taxpayers (1 was given by us marshal service)
  • Discontinued work with Marshal Service after they got the new Tahoe
  • Nearly 1 Million in payout due to lawsuits due to lack of training in jail
  • Left the East End Substation unused for nearly two years (until re-election this year)
  • Specail treatment of David Pierce (54 Counts of contact with young boys)
  • Lied to the public regarding 1.6 million he claims he turned back
  • Claims his drug arrests are down 68% because he has put them all in prison
  • Lied to his own party and used them to get elected them stabbed them in the back
  • Has a long history of not telling the truth (see state police record and compare to today)
  • Failed to call ambulance for an inmate then tried to cover it up
  • Has said that he doesn't care about the very public who elected him when they complain (see video released by Mrs. Ives)
  • Has failed to offer any new programs that are inovative or technological


* Political appointments to the reserve program by the Sheriff include; Dennis Milligan, Mark Kizer, Alan Dabbs, Tom Lish, Rick Meyer, Patrick Rhodes...seems like I am missing someone here.

Yes and that person and one candidate sat on my fathers porch and directly lied to his face... while another ward supporter suggested I be in a car accident... Really nice tactics to get me to vote for your candidate
Comment by Chris on May 21, 2012 at 9:30pm
Well, technically he did use his real name once... and lucky me I saw it for the few seconds he accidentally posted from his real name before he deleted that thread and recreated under "John Cooper." :)
Comment by Heather Brown on May 21, 2012 at 9:27pm
Cooper is not even a real person.. He's a pretend person who is not adult enough to use his real name

It seems to be pick and choose as to the limits of free speech.  When a GROWN WOMAN yells obscenities at an opponents campaign workers and visitors, comments should be allowed.  Sounds to me like she wanted to shut down Cooper.  There has been no rhyme or reason on this blog except that you can see there are some favorites such as Shadow, Undertaker, Tripp who can say anything and it's okay, but Cooper and others in the past have gotten banned.  I stay confused because one minute she's asking everyone to bring happiness and love to the blog and the next she's enjoying the extra attention to mysaline when it gets dirty.  It's not consistent.

Very suspect that this is done some 20 hrs later (after the posting) on the eve of the primary election.

 So if I post a blog as a victim of her behaviour I too would be suspended. ? What makes her different (protected) than those non canidates that people bash on here? What is considered family ? They are NOT blood relatons !  I think this needs to be explained and speaks to the heart of our rights of unbridled freedom of speech without recourse.  I believe you  just lost your court case as this very thing would have been the heart of your case. Please advise so we all are not confused. Thank you in advance.

Sheriff Pennington has worked these streets and highways for many years in the Saline County area. Both as a regular officer and as a supervisor. Sheriff Pennington has lost friends and fellow officers over the years to crimes of the streets. Sheriff Pennington has personally got out and checked on properties, worked accidents, investigated crimes, and helped defend the defenseless. Sheriff Pennin...gton is personally part of that Thin Blue Line, which protects you as the first line of defense of your freedoms in your county and state. When people are speaking ugly about the officers who protect us, I want you to remember this:

A Part of America Died...
Somebody killed a policeman today and a part of America died; a piece of our country he swore to protect will be buried with him at his side.
The suspect who shot him will stand up in court with counsel demanding his rights, while a young widowed mother must work for her kids and spend many long, lonely nights.
The beat that he walked was a battlefield too, just as if he had gone off to war; though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast, to his name they will add a gold star.
Yep, somebody killed a Policeman today, in your town or in mine, while we slept in comfort behind our closed doors...a cop put his life on the line.
Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street, and he stands at each new rookie's side; he answered the call, to himself gave his all and a part of America died.

Chris... One of those deputies was my husband. He is an EMT as well. Thank you for recognizing him and Parker and shellnut
Comment by Chris on May 21, 2012 at 8:04pm

He still has his original EJ Harris account. You know, the same one he accidentally posted the original thread about a possible dead inmate yesterday but quickly deleted and replaced it under "John Cooper"....which turned out to be an inmate whose life was saved by the jailers using their medical training.

Notice we do not have a thread about that.... An actual worthwhile thread that gives honor to people who actually deserve it.

Comment by Brian on May 21, 2012 at 7:44pm
Well I guess Mr Cooper won't be responding to anymore of these....unless he changes this screen name AGAIN. We will know when he does
Comment by Brian on May 21, 2012 at 6:40pm
That is a 2008 Charger....the accident occurred in 2009, I think. The Full time deputies drive the WHITE 2010 Chargers and the transport officers and the reserves drive the Grey ones.
