Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker issues statement on COMBAT action

Dec. 28, 2017

Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker issued the following statement today regarding COMBAT:

"Today, oversight of Combat is placed under the prosecutor, the same place it originated, by the Legislature’s unanimous override of the County Executive’s veto. I will do my level best to restore trust for this important tax and provide oversight in a straightforward and transparent manner.

To those who have received funding through Combat in the past, no deadlines are impacted and we look forward to finding more efficiency in the application process.

This needed to happen. She is saying the right thing.

Remember, it's actually just a return of the program to the Prosecutor's office.

Jean Petersucker Baker is worthless. She is a weak-dick prosecutor and part of the reason for our high murder rate, because she is unable or unwilling to put criminals away.

Shut up Caleb.

It will be a better program again.

Jean simply lives to serve Local 42. We should never make her out to be an angel.

I would say that they took the program away from Caleb Clifford who was abusing it. Although this is a slap in the face to Frank White who seems to be blind anymore when it comes to Caleb. That is the entire reason why I ignored Ol' Number 20's Birthday Fundraiser last September. I would rather see Frank White lose than have county government fucked up even more by Caleb Clifford.

So is Frank White getting a pay cut since he's now got less to oversee? If so, his friends better get ready to bail him out with another "gift."

How did the fight between Caleb and Jean start? Why did Frank decide to take Caleb's side?

Does Caleb still have a job at the county? Wasn't his chief of staff gig a budget cut by the legislature?

Jean Petersucker Baker is not competent as a prosecutor. It’s ok that she is in control of Combat, because it accomplishes nothing useful anyway.

So the distribution of funds to cronies will have a different Head Crony om charge?

Maybe they will fund a class for marksmanship so the thugs can hit their target rather than innocent bystanders?

More OT for DARE-grifters!!!!

How long before Frank White issues a written statement written by somebody else insulting the Legislators and talking about what a great guy he really is?

Jean Petersucker Baker is ridiculously incompetent, but Frank is worse. Jean Petersucker Baker wins this one by default.

Combat might actually do something to stop crime. Kudos to the Legislature.

Still find it bad form for JPB to have publicly donated $ to the mother of the teen girl killed at a waterpark. Seems the kindness could have been done anonymously through a charity or church. What was the rationale that singled out this parent for the gift? The mother worked at Barstow, reportedly. Hmmmmmm.
