No Credibility? Huh? wrote:
Bradshaw sure thought he had credibility when they used his testimony to bash and trash the career of Sgt. R out in BelleGlade. What's the matter Rick, the tables are turned now and suddenly he has no credibility. Well if thats the case, do the right thing and give Sgt. R a termination review board.
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO DO? THEY KNOW DAMNED WELL THIS GUY IS CREDIBLE BUT HAVE TO THROW OUT AND STRETCH REASONS TO CLAIM HE IS NOT CREDIBLE. HOW ELSE DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO DEFEND RIC? THIS INCIDENT CANNOT STAND WITHOUT SCRUTINY AND THE ONLY, AND I MEAN THE ONLY THING THEY CAN DO IS TO TELL THE WORLD THIS DEPOSITION COMES FROM AN UNRELIABLE SOURCE. THEY ARE MISSING THE POINT. THE SOURCE IT CAME FROM WAS NOT THE PERSON THEY CLAIM HAS NO CREDIBILITY. IT COMES FROM A POLICE CHIEF THAT USED TO BE A CAPTAIN. STILL, THEY MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO CHANGE THE FOCUS FROM THE ACTUAL CULPRIT, WHICH IS RIC BRADSHAW.
RIC, THE PEOPLE ARE ON TO YOU. YOU CAN HAVE YOUR GOONS THROW OUT ANY PERSONAL ATTACK THEY CAN BUT YOU WILL NOT CHANGE OUR FOCUS, WHICH IS ON THE FACT YOU AND YOU ALONE COMMITTED ALL OF THESE CRIMES. NO ONE MADE YOU DO THIS. THIS DEPOSITION WAS NOT TAKEN OUT OF CONTEXT. THIS IS A STEP BY STEP INCIDENT RECOUNTED BY AN HONORABLE PERSON WHO HAD THE GUTS TO CALL YOU OUT. ONE MORE THING YOU WILL NOT CHANGE IS OUR RESOLVE TO GET YOU AND FOG THE HELL OUT OF OFFICE. YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING A SHERIFF OF PBSO. FOR THAT MATTER, YOU HAVE NO BUSINESS BEING A JANITOR AT PBSO. IF YOU ASKED ME, I WOULD SAY THE ONLY THING YOU SHOULD BE DOING IS BEING A TRUSTEE IN ONE OF THOSE ORANGE JUMPSUITS. YOU ARE A CROOK, A LIAR AND A THIEF AND I HOPE YOU AND THE FOG ARE RUN THE HELL OUTTA HERE.
