I'm Glad I Voted No On The Sheriff's Levy

First, despite winning the vote for the tax levy, the Deschutes County Sheriff finds extra money and inmates still go free. Then, the Sheriff decides to implement "performance standards" (also known as quotas to the rest of the world). Then, he denies they're quotas.

All this after the last Sheriff got sent to jail for a massive embezzlement scheme, using County dollars.

And now, probably the most disturbing news of all is that a Deschutes County sheriff's patrol deputy was arrested by Oregon State Police last night on 180 child sex abuse and drug-related counts. Michael Patrick Malloy of LaPine (just south of Bend) was a deputy for 10-years.

And these are the people we have on our tax-payer-paid police force? Granted, this is probably an isolated incident, but it doesn't speak well for the folks they hire (and keep) there, and I hope they're scrutinizing their other deputies appropriately.
