Every four years the citizens of Hendry County are victimized at the hands of those that shouldn't be, but want to be, but don't have the sense God gave them. Let's analyze something here in response to the letter of a former member of the Hendry County Sheriff's Office.
As to personnel on the street at any given time, might I ask, before Ronnie Lee was elected the first time, how many deputies were on the street, actually patrolling and solving crimes
other than the ones who were stealing guns, victimizing the citizens of Hendry County and who knows what else, and being just plain criminals under the guise of the Badge?
As to Sheriff Lee "living in Lee County"
might I ask that same former member just how many days you spend, along with your criminal cronies, at "Alternative Lifestyle" and "swinger" bars in Lee County before you scurried back to hide in 'ole Hendry County and then portray yourself as a Law Enforcement Officer? You are right. Ronnie Lee and his family did live in Lee County. He worked the 20th Judicial Circuit as an Investigator for many years, about the same time you were doing your drugs in the twilight. Just in case you didn't know, the 20th Judicial Circuit includes Hendry County. You guys didn't seem to have a problem with a former Chief Deputy living all of the way on Sanibel now did you? Why was that? I guess none of you can answer that truthfully now, can you. (I believe the statue of limitations has run now, so
And might I ask that same former member, "Just what did you do in the Marines?" And I will answer that for you. The same as you and your cronies did when the Citizens of Hendry had the misfortune of having you on that Department
nothing. Your MOS was a paper-pusher and you didn't stay long in the Corps because you couldn't handle it. You badger Sheriff Lee's tenure in the Corps and I will say it was a lot longer than you, and he retired from it
A true Marine honors the Corps and is proud of their accomplishments in service, including having their uniforms that they wear. Why don't you ask my wife about her father, who served in the Corps in WW II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, before he retired? We buried him in the most honorable of grounds, Arlington National Cemetery recently, in you know what? His dress Blues. He kept one of everyone of his uniforms after retiring from the Corps after 23 years. I call that Honor and Pride. Nothing you and your cronies would have the first clue about.
Not taking anything from the Marines that fight for our Counties freedoms today, but he WAS a Marine. My Father was a Marine. Two of my Brother in laws were Marines; one just retired from the Corps, just as his Father did. Not a pretend one such as yourself and several others of your buddies.
And no, I did not serve in our country's military. I served my community for 30 years. I have raised my son, and for that fact, all of my children, to be respectful to all, not victimize people around themselves because of someone's illogical beliefs or stupidities. I guess I did alright
he has a full ride scholarship into the U.S. Army to become an Officer. Did you ever do that? I guess not
You have no honor as you did not serve in the beliefs of the Corps.
You talk about psychological disorders? Might you enlighten the readers on what type of yoga or outer space science you deal in today? Please explain why you and the buddies that I refer to, who can't pass psychological testing, or go with larger law enforcement agencies that require you to pass those tests, including polygraphs. I guess you can't answer that one either?
Whereas I do not know personally any of the other candidates, I do know that many are there because of let's say, influences, who want to control the Sheriff's Office and continue to victimize the Citizenry of Hendry County, you and your cronies included, under the guise of a deputy with the Hendry County Sheriff's Office. Most have no significant experience. Most couldn't care less about the rights of a citizen of that county and/or the good people who do exist in the Hendry County Sheriff's Office.
The individual that you back because he has promised you and others jobs, might I ask you this? How come he has signs out there on SR 80 in front of a residence that the individual stole a large amount of money from a nearby town and then moved to Hendry County? How much money did that guy give your guy? And for what, to let his little 'ole wife back in there to do nothing at the taxpayers expense? What experience does your candidate have? Not much from my memory.
The ignorant and spiteful bigots you refer to are you and yours. You were incompetent before, and it apparently has continued. And to clear the record for all of the readers, I suggested to fire you and your cronies because of the incompetency you and yours exhibited
Sheriff Lee wanted to give you all a chance and you proved those of us right who knew how incompetent you truly were. You guys are the reason that law enforcement is at an all-time low in the respect category. You and your cronies are despicable members of that community, and the citizens of that community deserve a whole lot better. Not want-to-be's who wear a badge, the same badge that you and your cronies tarnished, and will continue to tarnish, at the expense of the good people of Hendry County if the truths are not righted. The same badge that many have worn, and died for, with honor and pride.
The Hendry County Sheriff's Office, the good people within that office, and those citizens deserve a whole lot more than a pack of degenerates who hide behind a badge who would not know compassion and respect to their fellow human beings if it slapped 'em in the face.
No Allen, I do not have a dog in this fight. But I do know that the citizenry of Hendry County knows what you and yours are, and by the grace of God, will show you and your cronies that in the upcoming elections.
