Half truth means Partial truth:innuendo unfavorable insinuation; My question is what does a person have to gain by half truths and insinuations? Is it for personal gain ? To smear a persons name or reputation Well lets talk half truths .And by the way I have a right to my humble opinions also.
It is true partially (half true)what was said about Sheriff Pennington . The rest of the story is : The S...tate Police comission overturned the desicion of the Director. Which means Sheriff Pennington did not do any wrong in the Commisions eyes. Sheriff Pennington was re-instated to Sgt. and shortly there after Retired with Full benefits as a SGT. This has been brought up in the two previous elections. So why would someone bring this up again?
Plus was promises made if this was brought back up?
Also Richard Scott was brought up, I suppose to bring descredit on hiring pratices. The young man admits he did wrong. He was also terminated even tho the case was Nol-pros. By reading what was published I get the impression the Mayor ordered the termination not the Chief. It could be the Chief saw no need but since the Mayor can fire the Chief he may have felt to keep his job he had no choice. So now this young man is targeted because of his opinions and outspoken comments? And these things that have happened in the past seems not to bother his wife. If he was as bad as he has been painted I dont think she would be with him. Also one time and no other incidents? It could be the charges were dropped not only because of lack of witness but of evidence. But his reply I think speaks for itself.
I read with interest that a comment was made that an officers report is hearsay. Really? Wow.Funny I always refer to my reports in court.
Also a person using an alias to attack peoples honesty and integrity does not impress me. I would think if you have proof show it and be man or woman enough to put your name to it. And you are right a person is known by the company he keeps. Some people that worked here was terminated or was not going to be hired for the streets for various reasons. Now I see some of them backing the Ward campaign. Interesting isn't it?
I also believe if you work for a man that is elected by the public your loyalty should go to that person while employed.
These are my opinions which everyone is entitled to have their own.It does not mean anyone is right or wrong .It just means people think different and some people are not aware of every aspect of a situation.
I have requested B.Hutto to post this for me. Harold Marable

lol, considering the context in that statement PLUS the explanation of that statement, yes, "ignorant" fits quite well.

Mr. Marable, I told no one to shut up.

Here is the comment posted by Your littlte buddy, Chris,  defender of of free speech. His, Yours, anyone he agrees with, but not mine.

John, your questions are crap actually. Pointless, ignorant, dumb questions. They have been answered, several times. You're just another rambler.

Due to the fact that I fought for your rights, I demand you to stop asking questions. Just as you demand answers from people whom you supposedly pay their salary (which is another crock of crap). There, now I've entered the level of ignorance your questions are coming from.

Chris , really, you actually wrote this and call anyone ignorant?

O.K.. This is enough!!  Harold and is Military background lends him more qualifications, as it does with applicant for most any job.  Thats enough said.  Linda Ives, I hurt for you and can't imagine your life since your son has been gone.  But a Sheriff, any Sheriff, can not get any information that isn't blacked out from ANY Federal Agency; and for you to know that even Gov. Clinton knows the truth, how can you continue to blame the local law enforcement?  All cases are open until they are solved, tho many do become cold cases.  Your best chance to solve this horrible crime is to reach to the agencies that already have the answers.  God Bless,

Sam another reason my military was brought up is because what John P said to Chris. telling him to shut up I guess because of his opinions conflicting. Saddens me First amendment you know


Comment by Harold Marable on May 9, 2012 at 1:13am

Ok Sam this is simple I am not an investigator. Now please read what I posted I admit i left a word out here and there.I have been up since 8am. So I am getting a little tired.As far as the murders . That was probaly one of the worst cases I have ever heard of. It would be any investigators dream to solve it. But lets be realistic. There have been how many Sheriffs in office since then and now? Plus the State and FBI was involved? And no one has gotten anywhere . I do know the Lt over investigations goes over this case frequently. But I do not know the status. You can not make people talk on the record to law officers if they do not want to . I truly wish I could see it solved.This would help Ms Ives and the other parents  and family members get closure  to a point. Maybe some day we will see it solved maybe in in 3mos or  3 years or whenever. I would hope someday soon.

As far as my service having a bearing on Sheriff Penningtons performance it does not. What I am pointing to is I recognize an efficiently run department . Now these are my opinions which I have that right. Just Like you both have the right to yours. Because I can not make assumptions does not make me or the department wrong .

Sorry to disappoint you but I have to think on my own. I am not the one brow beating or trying to cyberbully with an alias . Also just pure speculation on my part maybe its 70% of known drug trafficers that have been caught, search me.Without knowing Sheriff Penningtons information I have to speculate like you. But I am not running against the Sheriff.  Also there is such a thing as loyalty. Some day you may know what it involves. You claim Sheriff Penningtons administration has failed . I disagree. I happen to have an extensive experience as a supervisor and have worked for both larger and smaller organizations. One happened to have the Largest Police Agency of the world. That is why I brought up the military . In the 70s the Air Force had the LARGEST police organization in the world. So I know I recognize a organization that is run well. Plus this is my third Sheriffs office to work for . So unlike you I have a lot of experience in the law enforcement field. No brag just fact.

Also I dont see where the law doesn't apply to everyone. However I know of one time in saline co (before Sheriff Pennington) that one incident did not appear to.But it was agreed by state and other co. officials the way it was handeled was for the publics best interest . As far as praying I do every day at least 4 or 5 times a day. For everyone even my enemies.For God to direct them  which can have interesting results for them . Also you said military as you pointed out in a previous log you joined the conversation.AND YOU never answered. National guard wasn't it?During peace time. Be proud of it .My point  is if that is true don't make it more than it is. Because that puts every service member down if you do. And that was posted by you one hour ago saying You fought for his rights refering to Chris. If that was true then you would not have demanded to stop asking questions. I haven't demanded it from you. Because I know how important and fragile our constitution is for this country. And that is another reason I dont believe you would say people are miss treated . I hope some day you will see things differently and support law enforcement regardless is in office . 

Comment by Sam Turkeyhunter Jones on May 9, 2012 at 12:24am

I do not understand how Harolds military service decades ago has any bearing on sheriff Pennington performance today.   Harold, can you give us a percentage of time in the past four years that you spent helping in finding the murderers of Don Henry and Kevin Ives.  This year marks the 25th year of the murders.  We would expect a full investigation from all law enforcement  agencies starting with the sheriffs office.  Reading Penningtons accomplishments only shows what is expected and not a bragging point.  I did not read where our current sheriff had accomplished anything on this case in the past four years. 

Harold, God forbid if your son was murdered in Afghanistan.  Would you expect a full investigation on the incident?  I am sure you would not stop short of a full investigation that completely answered all question and the murderers was brought to justice.  Why is this being denied to Linda Ives?

That My Friend, Is What He Is Fighting For!

Comment by John Publius on May 9, 2012 at 12:01am

So you trust Penningtons comment that the dept has arrested 70% of drug dealers in Saline County? You Believe this because he said so? Because you trust him? Exactly when did you quit thinking for youself?

Mr.Marable, Your son's service is admirable, remind him to keep his head down and I pray that God keep him safe. Your service is admirable.But neither have any bearing on Penningtons' failed administration in Saline County over the last 4 years. In fact, when young Marable returns, I hope he returns to a county where the rule of law applies to each and every citizen, no matter who they are or who there Daddy is. Thats The Issue.
