TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! COURTHOUSE WORKER SURVEILLANCE, PARANOIA AND GOLF TIME PRIORITIES RULE JACKSON COUNTY AMID WORSENING JAIL CRISIS!!!
Jackson County is at a crossroads.
The sitch . . .
- A litany of a bad news and a recent death at the jail threaten to create a real life HUMAN RIGHTS CONCERN that seems to demand federal intervention.
- Arguing in open session about the jail and the budget is UNPRECEDENTED in recent history and Exec Frank White seems to be losing control of the Legislature.
- Property tax problems, worker discontent amid cutbacks and and overall high crime complaints directed against the Prosecutor's office create the impression that THE COUNTY IS UNDER SIEGE from voters who demand better from their public officials.
Right now, here's an important word sent our way that speaks the screwed up situation and local government employees also feeling marginalized by the people in charge. Checkit:
Darkness descends on the County Courthouse:
We are desperate and are asking for help. This entire administration is nothing short of frightening. The public has no idea how honestly evil this place has become.
We fear for our jobs if we don't do and say exactly what the administration wants regardless of whether it is ethical, legal or right. I have a colleague that works in the budget department that was told to "quit asking questions" when she noticed irregularities in some line items or they'd be fired (They are a single parent with kids). That kind of stuff never happened even during the Shields era, and that era was pretty bad.
THE NEW BOSS simply does not care what HIS HENCHMAN does to us so long as he can go golfing, and HIS HENCHMAN spends all of his time scheming and plotting how to politically screw over people he doesn't like.
The administration fear the press and this BLOG in particular. We know that our calls and internet use is being monitored to find out who is tipping you. Word went out two weeks ago that anyone providing info on the leaks would be "rewarded." This place is out of control. Something needs to change.
