DOJ: ECSO is 20 years behind

May 10, 2009

At the Lake Charlene Homeowners Association meeting, Sheriff David Morgan said a Department of Justice investigator told him that the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is 20 years behind the rest of the country when it comes to police procedures and policies.

DOJ has wrapped up the jail review phase of its investigation and is now looking at the ECSO operations. The DOJ investigation is based on complaints concerning jail deaths, taser abuses and other allegations of abuse by deputies under the McNesby administration.

No reports have been issued by the DOJ. However, the ECSO did recently suspend K-9 operations until the handlers received additional training.

    AnonCG: Amazing. You turned a DOJ study of local law enforcement into a rant about archaeology in general and UWF specifically. The big old chip on your shoulder is showing.

    namzaps, that sounds like fertile ground for the UWF Archeological Department. Maybe we can declare all of Pensacola, Pace, Gulf Breeze, Milton and Cantonment “unbuildable” as we need to unearth and dissect even our most modern buildings and activities (as UWF’s patrons would like). We have historic figures running modern gang operations! Are our criminals still carving flint arrowheads? Next time I think I’m being bit by a mosquito on the ankle, I should look down. Maybe I pick up a P’cola “Blood” or “Crip”….”artifact”. Probably a lead-alloy metal clump….circa 2006. Seriously though, I’m with UWF Archeological Dept….modern people suck. Go away so UWF can dig one inch per decade on all the land. You jerks. Trying to live…how stupid is that? Selfish, we say.

    What’s it matter when our politicians are 30 years behind, our industrial base is 40 years behind, our transportation infrastructure is 50 years behind, and the criminals themselves are trapped in the ice ages?
