to all the GOOD employees of the sheriff's office...this is just a reminder of the comment made in a department wide email from "Sheriff" Wall dated 05/23/07 in response to two good employees resigning because of the liability that Sheriff Wall was bringing to the department, the County, the employees and the inmates of the Routt County Jail.....his only response after losing a long time employee was " thought you might like to see the type of person who was working here"....as a reminder to YOU all....thought you might like to see the type of person who is working there now - Sheriff!!
id04sp....please....try to limit yourself to things that you understand.....the CSP would not have had to pay for the "suspect" to go from the jail back to the hospital.....the county would have that responsiblilty once the arrest is made. I think that the limited intellect that you accuse the CSP of is finding it's roots right here on this page with the likes of you and the others that have no clue as to the extensive training and education that the State provides our troopers. These guys and gals put their lives on the line every day when they go to work.....try to find something else worth whining about......This country would be complete chaos without good law enforcement.... We need them to keep the Gary Walls of the world in line......
It sounds like "responsibledogowner" can't see much further than his own kennel. The CSP has the huge responsiblity of keeping the stray dogs off the street that continue to act in total disregard for the welfare of others.....ie...the people that continue to drive drunk and kill others. They are the ones that respond to these fatal accidents day after day....and they're the ones that have to explain to the families of those killed by careless drivers and drunk drivers why their loved ones won't be coming home...
They do a great job.....and a thankless one....and they don't need to be criticized with rude comments like yours......to all the troopers out there......good job!...keep it up.
....and the potential accusations of sweeping things under the carpet are always there in politics......that is why we should all hope that an outside investigation is done....
NOT by one from the organization that is being accused of the impropriety....an internal investigation doesn't work....the little puppy that pee's on the carpet is not going to spank himself on the butt and put himself outside. Someone else needs to handle the training.
Benny.....Good question.....the DUI won't keep him out of the Academy...(if it was an older offense) .but I'm not sure about the weapons charge.....
However.....if you go to the POST Academy, Law Enforcement driving is part of the curriculum.....you DO need a valid license to participate. How can you be part of a profession where driving is a part of the daily procedure.....and not have a valid license? I guess his time will run out for getting POST certified...?? Thanks for bringing up good questions.
hey pat....I agree about him.....however.....there are some really good cops in Steamboat.....and the town is fortunate to have them. Don't lump all of law enforcement into the poor example that Gary Wall is.....the CSP is a fine organization that deserves praise on a daily basis for the job they do.....they are the ones that, have to respond to the fatal accidents that are caused by those that choose to drink and drive........ as long as there are people out there driving that make poor decisions.......the more we need them.......Gary Wall is not even close to being considered a law enforecement officer.....he's an embarrasement to the law enforcement profession. Most are putting their lives on the line every day. He's putting everybody elses life on the line by doing what he does.
Steamboat joe....There are many good county officials that think it's a privelage.....an honor to run for office in Routt County......and they do it successfully without embarrasing themselves or the county... Gary Wall can't do either.
Those that do.....respect those that voted for them.....put themselves on a higher pedestal of conduct out of respect for the voters, their families and themselves......and the job that they do make Routt County and Steamboat Springs the great place that it is......and my thanks to all of those that do it right.
wzstfu....you're right....you do have the right to refuse roadside sobriety tests.....they are voluntary....but if you do refuse them, the officer conducting the stop moves on to the next step in determining whether you are safe to drive on the streets that our children are crossing and that our wives our driving on..............he asks you....per the consent express laws that you sign when you get your drivers license...would you prefer a blood test or a breath test??...your choice... and...if you refuse either of those (and why would you if your sober?).....then you are cited for DUI.... and ...the DMV does their thing- automatic revocation for one year....and the court system does their thing, separate from DMV.........but given the current circumstances......it ain't lookin good for Wall......and it shouldn't.
ms bronte....Good for you....you obviously understand the big picture here......if he wasn't intoxicated....why not take the tests (that as a law enforcement officer, you should support)....because there is a lot more at stake than just the DUI..
Benny....about the temporary license thing....it's up to the arresting officer whether you get a temporary license for seven (not ten) days.....but all that paperwork is done at the jail when you are arrested so who knows in his case....There is a box on the arrest form that is checked if the driver is allowed a temporary license....That 7 days is how long the driver has to call the DMV and set up their hearing......but.....
a total refusal to blood and breath is an automatic revocation for one year....maybe he and the undersheriff can carpool...
