Well most of the people in the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department should be very happy as the chosen one has been given the nod to become the next Sheriff of San Bernardino County. The problem with this is that there still will be no change in the running of the department in any major way.
There will still be the same corrupt internal investigations being conducted by the same corrupt investigators doing as they are told so that they can progress up the ladder as so many have done before them.
Look at some of the most recent investigations that have been brought to the attention of the public. When certain investigators get called to the witness stand they boldly lie about the investigation and when caught nothing happens to them.
Can any normal police officer tell us how they are the investigating officer on a case and still they do not know how evidence was placed or omitted in a case? Well the internal affairs investigators in the Sheriff’s Department sure can shed some light on this issue. And even after lying they are promoted to the next step.
Even officers testifying in civil service hearings get caught lying on the stand, and McMahon was present, and nothing happens to them because of certain relationships. The funny part is McMahon himself testified how important it is to be honest as a police officer. But this policy as many others in the department only apply to a certain few.
Will McMahon change the K-9 policy in this department? No he will not because that is the way that he was raised and it would be going against the grain.
Will McMahon change the promotion process within the department? Again no he will not because then you will be taking away the power of the Staff. Currently there have been approximately 15 promotions to Detective and Sgts from the current list. There have been more people promoted out of group two in both of these classifications than there have been from group 1.
How do you think it makes people feel knowing that they are within the top five percent of the promotion list only to get passed over time and time again. Many times these individuals are passed over only to have to test again. Hoping that they can do as good on the next test to at least get in a position to get promoted.
But you have to realize we have to get all of those favors done first. Then comes the chosen few along with the ass kissers and family members and if any other positions are left maybe you will be lucky to land one of those.
For those of you people who still do not believe this is how the system works and will not change keep your eyes open on the next few promotions and see how close some of these people are to the new Sheriff.
With the appointment of McMahon this leaves at least one deputy chief position available. Keep your eyes on how the current Executive Staff changes are made and see if you can pick out the next Sheriff of this county. The chosen one will be moved to Assistant Sheriff or Under Sheriff and groomed for the next 6 years to take over when John does not want the position any longer.
