More BCSO Threats
Well, it didn’t take long to generate more threats from the folks at BCSO who want the corruption and good ol’ boy way of enforcing the law to continue. If you have been following the sordid saga of the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office you know that folks running the show there won’t hesitate to threaten citizens. We have shown proof of that in the past.
Now that the office of the sheriff is empty and a ton of those working at BCSO are scrambling for position, the threats have started again out of the blue. Only now, they are threatening one another, lashing out blindly as they scramble madly for power and position.
The sad part is those threats are apparently being made by a Berkeley County deputy tasked with leadership responsibilities and investigating internet crimes against children. Let’s see what Lt. Kevin Murphy has to say about a fellow county employee he is accusing of writing CTL. As usual, we have to blur the names of the innocent because some folks at BCSO couldn’t investigate their way out of a ten foot section of drainage pipe with the sun shining in both ends. They tend to thrash about wildly while hoping they get lucky.
Notice how the tone of that threat is similar to the tone of a previous threat made against a citizen and his family they accused of being CTL simply because they supported DeWitt’s opponent in the last election?
The strangest part of this whole thing? Murphy’s own blog has published more damaging information about many of the candidates than we ever did. He has posted a ton of dirt on every candidate associated with BCSO now or in the past and even published some very revealing information about other candidates with deep ties to Berkeley County. Murphy has published information we weren’t even aware of. That was the tip-off we were dealing with someone on the inside.
Murphy does not mind bragging that he is the person behind the alleged “anti-corruption” site shilling for Rick Ollic. Yeah, the same site that endorsed Ollic by basically claiming, “Rick was a dick, but now he’s not.” How’s that for a contradiction? An “anti-corruption” site advocating for Rick Ollic. Since Murphy was the first to report on the sexual peccadilloes of Chad Caldwell and others, maybe someone can give equal time and ask Ollic about the time he was called in to meet with Sheriff Isgett and Jim Meade. That meeting led to Ollic being forced to confess to his wife he had an affair with another law enforcement officer’s wife. Rick was a dick, but now he’s not, right?
Murphy better hope Ollic wins because he has attacked every other candidate using insider information only someone privy to the dirty deeds at BCSO would know. Of course, Murphy’s chosen candidate is as clean as the driven snow to hear Murphy tell it. If anyone but Ollic wins, this guy will be the first one looking for a job with some other department. Problem is, no matter how smart he seems to be, not many departments around here would touch him after such a display. Sounds like he’s getting desperate, realizing he hitched his cart to the wrong horse.
To his credit, Murphy’s site has achieved one thing. Folks who read it are more determined than ever to avoid voting for anyone remotely affiliated with BCSO.
For those candidates who might want to find out if this fellow is using county equipment and time to advocate for his candidate you should keep in mind he has an internet connection independent of the rest of Berkeley County’s connections due to his position as the internet crimes investigator. Keep that in mind when filing those FOIA’s to determine if there is any kind of ethics violations involved.
We are loving the News 2 shorts with the candidates.
Chad Caldwell spent his time talking about federal grants and how good he was at getting them. He failed to address the problems he had with some of those grants thanks to the person he had administer and manage them. She later followed him to Moncks Corner when he left NCPD and couldn’t protect her anymore.
Ricky Driggers told News 2, “I din’t do nuffin!” Uh-huh. We guess that remains to be seen since that federal investigation is still underway. He also said he wants to split up the investigations and narcotics units into north and south units. Of course, he failed to mention how he plans to pay for the additional personnel, buildings, utilities, computers, network infrastructure, and administrative/civilian personnel necessary to staff those separate locations. We also have to question the wisdom of splitting up units that rely on sharing information and making connections between cases, perpetrators and M.O’s. BCSO was set up this way under M.C. Cannon. Ray Isgett brought the units together for purposes of efficiency.
The new Driggers campaign slogan? “Driggers - Back to the ’70’s” Somebody shoot him if he tries to bring back disco, too.
In other news, we have been contacted by a number of residents in Sangaree who tell us the signs for their favored candidate are being stolen from their yards. Seriously? Dirty politics in Berkeley County? Say it ain’t so!
Seriously though, we would be happy to run some photos or video of that happening. You know we won’t hesitate to bust on the perpetrators.
