Sheriff’s Race?

August 4, 2007

There’s a radio advertisement out by one of the candidates accusing Sheriff candidate Greg Phares of racism. In fact, the impression I get from Milligan is that his whole campaign theme is that Greg Phares is bad. I haven’t heard the ‘Phares is a racist’ commercial yet, but looking at Milligans website, I found this…

EBR Sheriff Office Again Accused Of Torturing Prisoner
by Maria GuerreroWAFB Channel 9

[ad#Google Adsense]

We may now know why accused murderer Trucko Stampley appeared unresponsive and hunched over in his first court appearance Thursday. Sheriff Greg Phares says this week, a group of deputies did take Stampley to the hospital because Stampley refused to eat.

Now, there are allegations that Stampley is being abused in prison.

His website also goes on to say…

CHARGES OF RACIAL DISCRIMINATION AND ABUSE OF A CRIMINAL SUSPECT MARK OPENING FORAY IN EBR SHERIFF RACE

Two callers hurled zingers at Phares. The first asked if he had ever been sued for discrimination against minority officers. He responded over the air that as Sheriff he had not. However, he failed to mention that as a member of the Baton Rouge Police force he had been sued and lost just such a case costing the taxpayers at least a million dollars.

Another caller asked Phares if he had ever physically abused any suspected criminals while in custody.

Read the whole story here.

Now I don’t know what’s going through Milligan’s mind here. Maybe he thinks all Republicans are guilty of torture, maybe he thinks accusing people of torture wins election, maybe he actually believes there’s torture, who knows what’s going through his head.

But, Milligan isn’t so special and has a lot of personal issues to deal with on his own. He seems more like a man who is right while the rest of the world is wrong, which makes him unfit to do the job. Mark Milligan wasn’t cut out to be a police officer, what makes him think he’s cutout to be the Sheriff?

What really catches my attention is that he has a campaign team around him and they should be smarter than this. Even an amateur can see that Milligan is a sacrificial lamb. His campaign team isn’t working for him, their working for somebody else. Why else would they sick Milligan on Phares, knowing full well that Milligan can never get the white vote, a vote that he’ll need if he wants to win?

Me thinks his campaign team is working for Sid Gautreaux in order to split the black vote between Milligan and Dalton Honore, so that Sid Gautreaux can make the runoff against Greg Phares. If Phares was smart, he’d do everthing in his power to make sure that Mark Milligan made the runoff against him. Milligan is now Phares safest bet to re-election.

Interesting that this blog died. No mass firings have taken place since Gautreaux was elected 3 months ago as Sheriff. Some of the bad guys left on their own. Only 2 or 3 were let go. Loads of promotions have taken place, some to well deserved individuals - wow, some to even Phares' boys. Time is showing that the few Phares people had no clue what they were talking about in this forum. Even Biscuits and a few others were kept though they personally attacked the candidate. It's refreshing to see positive changes taking place. Hopefully changes will continue in the right direction.

Well Topdog-you ask how do I know anything about the good old boy system-gee it was played out in Baker for 27 years..........You must have no life if you are on here trying to figure out who everyone is that has posted...And then to think it is sweet when you think you have and yet--you have no clue. I will leave this site by praying every night that these next four years passes very quickly and that Sid doesn't do much damage to the department or the deputies that work for the EBRSO. God help them from the good old boy!!!

I wondered the same thing about the GOTAGEAUX blogger. When they posted earlier, they appeared to be supporting Sid.....this last one seems to either have changed his/her tune or have been written by someone different. I sometimes suffer from multiple personalities according to my kids, but I do attempt to keep my opinions/stories straight. Go figure. :-)

Yep Topdog....it's a real SHANE...I mean shame....to see all the Greg supporters not wanting to work together with the new administration. You would think they would be willing to help join forces to help make Baton Rouge a better and safer place in which to work and live. They only want to whine about negatives, instead of trying to be part of the solution to the problems. Instead of playing PATTI CAKE or standing in a WADING POOL...they need to be thinking in a positive manner and help Sid turn things around. Oh....and about those blooms you mentioned.....you might want to pinch off the BUDS now that they have wilted. Something much sweeter will bloom in it's place. I am sure only you and I know what those little codes are...unless those they are aimed at are as good of DETECTIVES as we are and as they claim to be! Peace!

Well, it is good that all of the bashing has stopped. It was getting really ugly. Now, we have to contend with the situation at hand. The press release stated today, that Sid is putting together the transition team. How sad this is. He stated that he wasn't going to be running the Mayor's office and the Mayor wasn't going to run the Sheriff's office, but look who is heading up this team. Rannah Gray, come on, and where might we add, she comes from, the Mayor's office. Where's George? I guess he will be following next, they do stick together(literally) like glue. What happened to Sid's campaign manager, Leslie Davis. Is she now a right off? I heard the group got tired of her lies, just like she lied to GP on the sign issue, and that she is all about herself, as long as it benefits her, guess Sid finally saw through her BS. Guess that was a big disappointment. And what about Ben Odom? I hear, he wasn't even here for the election, that after he lied to the news media about GP sending him an apology letter (I might add that he couldn't produce) about him being a drunk (which he is) that he left town. But then you here he is burning up Sid's phone to be hired. What kind of people is Sid going to have in his TEAM. One thing is for sure, to all who have left. Your exit will be short lived. You will only have to clean your desk for four years, then you will be able to return. This Sheriff's office will be like the Three Stoogers. Unless he performs a miracle, this will be a circus, just as his campaign was. No leadership, no qualified people working, for those knowing both sides, it was a CLUSTER. For a group that raised $1,300,000 and still has outstanding debt, what kind of mismanagement is this? Maybe. Sid should be auditing his finance committee instead of the Sheriff's department. Just my thoughts. Remember the Sheriff is elected by the people, maybe he needs to take a stand, and quit letting everyone else run him. Maybe he needs to not think with his heart, and be so compassionate, and use his head before they run him out, before he starts his new job.

LOL TIL IT Hurts, you know that is a thought. After being severly bashed on this blog and dogged for backing Sid. Those who think they are hidding behind blog names, how sweet it is to be discovered. Ladebug stated in an earlier posting that she works in law enforcement and for a small police department. My my the BUDS on my japanese magnolias are starting to bloom. I think I will get me some BAILEYS and sit on my porch and sip it slowly.

WOW! It got all quiet! Wonder why? All those who were attacking the Sid supporters must be either trying to figure out how they can handle the damage control (trying to save their jobs) or are out looking for something else to do. I guess those "biscuits" in the morning are not much comfort when you know you stomped on toes, huh? Gee...wonder who "biscuits" can help now? He may be asking YOU for help now, Topdog1. :-)

I pretty much have figured out who everyone on here is that posted. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Most were done using the office computers. How do you know anything about the good old boy system if you don't work at the office or your husband does not work at the office. A citizen I doubt that. You claim to know more than the average citizen would know that is about the good old boy system. I guess you will get tired of watching that is "eyes watching".

The election is over it is time to get to work and God knows there is a lot of work to do. This parish deserves the best and the Sheriff's Office deserves the best. Thanks to Scott Thompson and Mark Milligan for supporting Sid Gautreaux. I know you both took a lot of flack for that. Good Luck Sid. Sincerely, Connie Butler

The lack of voting is a problem that has been going on for years and will continue. When Jay Dardenne was elected he thought he could find a way to persuade voters to get out and cast their votes. This has not happened and he will find that this will always be a challenge until the people are inspired to vote and believe their vote will actually make a positive change against the old ways of thinking and doing business in our state. Voting requires ACTION. Those who are not willing to be a part of the solution lack the motivation to act. Sad, but true. There are reasons people do not vote and that is what is most noteworthy. One of the major reasons is that they know the good ole boy network exists and normally wins. Now that our state has moved forward with the election of NEW leaders like Bobby Jindal, the people will have to see REAL change. Once they see real change then and only then will the people even be inspired to cast their votes. This is NOT a sad day in Louisiana - it is the dawn of a new day for ethics reform and change from the way things used to be to a new way of doing business. The people, no matter how few, have spoken and have said it's time for change! This is a GREAT day in Louisiana!

I have been reading these posts since I learned of their existence and have found them to be both informative and noteworthy. But I do believe that some things have been left out and need to be addressed. Less than 80,000 people voted on this issue Saturday. This is just about one-third (1/3) of the people who travel to and around Tiger stadium for a football game, and spend in excess of 5 to 24 hours doing so as apposed to the 5 minutes it takes to vote. What is the underlying message we have learned about the people of East Baton Rouge? It is apparent that the people of this Parish have little concern for their safety and well being or for the integrity of the person or people entrusted with that responsibility. It shows that they have more concern about the outcome of a football game than they do for the safety of their families and community. This is a sad day in East Baton Rouge Parish, ladies and gentlemen, and a sad day in the State of Louisiana. If you perhaps are callous enough to feel unashamed by these facts, then you should at least feel sorrowed by such an injustice perpetrated by your own people’s lack of involvement in their own destiny. May GOD bless you all.

I GUESS THE DEPUTIES ARE STILL IN SHOCK THAT BR IS READY TO GET THE BAD AND CORRUPT INDIVIDUALS OUT OF THE SHERIFF'S OFFICE. I AM SURE THEY ARE ALL BUSY, BUSY, CLEANING OUT THEIR DESKS AND PERSONAL EFFECTS. THE CORRUPT ONES KNOW WHO THEY ARE, BUT I TRULY HOPE THE GOOD ONES WILL STICK AROUND. IT WAS TRULY A VICTORY TO SEE THE CURRENT DEPUTIES IN THEIR SQUAD CARS ARRIVE AT PRIMO'S LAST NIGHT TO SHOW SID THEY WERE REALLY SUPPORTING HIM. THEY TOOK A CHANCE KNOWING THAT THEY COULD BE FIRED...BUT THE BEST MAN DID WIN. HOW IRONIC IT WAS FOR RICHARD LIPSY, TO MAKE HIS REMARK, PRIOR TO THE FINAL VOTE TALLY, THAT THE BEST MAN WOULD BE SHERIFF, HE WAS RIGHT, EVEN THOUGH IT WASN'T HIS MAN. ALL I CAN SAY FOR GP, WAS THE LOOK OF UTTER SHOCK IN YOUR FACE LAST NIGHT WAS PRICELESS. YOUR GOOD OLE BOY DAYS ARE OVER. GO CHOP YOUR WOOD AND PLAY ON YOUR LAND, MAYBE YOU CAN TAKE SOME OF YOUR GOOD OLE BOYS WITH YOU AND THEY CAN MANAGE THE FARM FOR YOU, AND YA'LL CAN SIT BY THE FIRE AND ROAST MARSHMALLOWS.

I think the best person won. All of you "deputies" on here who have been so unprofessional and degrading to your uniform, I hope that you can either swallow your pride or turn in your resignation. The sheriff dept needs a fresh start and would be better off without you. SG will take office immediately to finish Litchfields term, I hope that he makes some wise choices when he starts replacing some of the higher brass. congratulations to SG and good luck to the sheriff dept

Rip, I for one, have ben doing that most of the morning. Almost everyone I've talked this morning have already cast heir vote, for GF I might ad. What a lot of people are going to be shocked at is that SG peed in his soup with a lot of voters yesterday when his lies on his latest ad backfired on him. His true character came through with his slezzy ad on the serial killer. Completely made up and fabricated lies. People finally realized what a true mistake it would be to elect him as Sheriff. I'm done. I just can't take the crap that SG and his band of idiots are spewing any longer. Everyone have a great day. GF people, I'll see all of you tonight at the victory party.

Just a quick suggestion for both sides. Instead of being on here thinking up bad things to say about the other side, get on the phone and call everyone you know. Remind them that the election is today and they need to go to the polls and vote. That is what we are doing. No matter who they vote for, they have an "obligation" to cast their vote. I am hearing that turn out is not looking good. These people need to be reminded that voting is not just a privilege. It is the one thing that sets us apart from most of the world. Do make those calls and try to get people to the polls. Good Luck to all.

the continued talk by the FEW deputies here that have proven that there is a problem with reaction vs. action. your talk here has sorely hurt Phares and the rest of the deputies that are hard working and dedicated to the public. why on earth would you even get on here and show this childish behavior? you wear uniforms for god's sake and are supposed to be adults. all this talk is sickening no matter what the competition says we hold you to a higher standard and want to trust you when you answer a call to our homes - if this is your behavior here, how on earth can we trust you in the field? it shows a horrible attitude and is a disgrace to the uniform and badge you wear. you are supposed to not react, but act appropriately both in public and behind closed doors. truthfully all politics aside, this has been so revealing and so frightening to see this attitude prevail among the FEW here that are supposed to be protecting the public. all i can say is you have proven your competition correct in your postings here as the FEW deputies at the top. i am disappointed and hoped for better by those in uniform.

gotageaux, I think that a non coward would go find Mr. Phares and call him a fairy to his face. I think that a non coward would go find any one of the "dirty dozen" that have been working at the office for the last 2-4 decades, depending on which one of them you are referring to, and call them a fairy. If you do not have the nuts to do that, go stand by SG. Because he WILL get some calls at ******* (Sorry, I won't allow this-admin) tonight and be told the truth about himself by people that WILL identify themselves. I STRONGLY suggest that before any of you post anymore hate filled LIES. Call your candidate, and ask him if he is prepared for every thing he has done in the last 30 years to come to light, including the names of the affairs. CALL HIM. ASK HIM. I am tired of playing by the rules and reading and watching the SG gang of thugs NOT play by the rules. GO ASK HIM. If he wants you to continue, post some more crap and get ready for the shitstorm. Love ya.

I hope enough people have read between the lines of all this mess. The only people who know the real way the sheriff dept. works are the ones working there everyday. I know of some who say they are backing GP, but who intend to cast their vote for SG. Don't want to jeoprodize their jobs. Look at the picture of the deputies who back the sheriff in the commercial. See the deputy with the long curly hair whose face you can't see. She has already put in for a position if SG wins. Ask Bud C. what he thinks the duties of women employees are and if you are a female employee and he has not hit on you - just wait it will happen. I hope that whoever wins, GP or SG, that they will make some changes and bring back the integrity of the office. This campaign has started the people and other government officials of Baton Rouge to begin to question the way the office is being run and how vendors are chosen. Good Luck to all deputies

well to all of you in 'phary' land. i guess the saying is correct, you stick with the 'fairies'. the SG crew will be sending over a case of crying towels, for the 'dirty dozen' to be able to contend with the defeat....was really ironic to see all of the deputies wives going up to SG and shaking his hand, and putting on a STAR to wear around saying they were supporting him at the Broadmoor Arts and Crafts fair yesterday at 5PM. Seems like you boys are too busy running your mouths to know what the wives are doing....you need to take your blinders off. You will not get another 4 years. As far as SG not attending the 'free' airtime, he never committed to it, due to other obligations....u don't seem to have a problem when the 'phary' doesn't show, after he makes a committment, but SG never did commit, so once again, your info is incorrect. You people only know 'dirty' politics, wonder who instilled that in your little pee brains....and yes the dirty dozen is nothing more than a bunch of 'worth deputies' who are they with their hands out, and probably some with their mouths open....stick that one in your pipe and smoke it. Don't get me wrong, their are quite a few great deputies, but not the one on the top heavy payroll. It would probably make you want to puke, just to see what the good old boys are making salarsy wise, while you are on the streets busting your asses, for little or not pay, according to what the others are making. GO #61....SG

Well here goes nothing...Below is a few things done by "No Show Gautreaux" Walking out of a public forum because you can't answer a question concerning sex offenders - 4500 votes for GP Running an ad about the serial killers in hopes to place fear in the women voters of this parish - 8000 votes for GP Lying to the voters about where you were (and getting caught) after YOU scheduled airtime on WJBO, the day before the election - PRICELESS for all I mean it just doesn't get much better than that folks. It is what it is. I still don't appreciate being called a "worthless deputy" that is terrible. So "No Show Gautreaux" turned up at the craft fair eh? And the Sheriff's Tax Office? Well wonder what time because the funeral he was claiming to be attending was not until 10:00 am. Still don't understand why he missed his opportunity for free airtime the DAY BEFORE the election, HE NEEDED IT. I think Kevin Meeks and Matt Kennedy were truly offended, as I suspect many many many voters were...Oh well what are you gonna do? GREG PHARES FOR SHERIFF!!! For some reason people on this blog just hate to love me and love to hate me!!!! (poor old black cell) I am so looking forward to tomorrow, we truly have something to be proud of. Sheriff Phares ran a CLEAN campaign, I know it, you know it, the VOTERS know it and even old "No Show Gautreaux" knows it!! I like that name, "NO SHOW GAUTREAUX"!! YEP YEP GREG PHARES FOR SHERIFF!!!

Oh my, I'm shocked that yet again SG was lying about where he was and for what......HICOLONIC.....I'm glad you put that on here, it is just yet another pitiful half truth or lie that SG has tried to shove down the voters of this parish throat.. A brother of mine said something that makes alot of sense to me...this has not only been a race between men for a position to a lot of us...it has quickly become a fight between good and evil... I choose to stay in the light and will be supporting Greg Phares tommorow... And FastGun, I hope that some on here can live with some of the nasty, ridiculous, insulting, lies and just plain stupid things that they have said to others. As for a brotherhood among the Deputies with EBRSO, It still exists......but you assume you know what is in my heart and mind as well as that of my sisters and brothers....You do not speak, nor think for me, I am a STRONG, EXCELLENT, INTELLIGENT, East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Deputy and

I worked for both Litchfield and Phares. Check the number of retirees, who had been there for many years, after Phares took over. Many of these deputies felt that they had no choice. Most were Captians and Lieutenants who could either retire so their positions could be filled with one of "Phares people" or be transferred from the positions that they had held for many years. Vote for the candidate of your choice - but remember you have to live with the outcome for the next 4 years. After the election you may be dispensible. Many years ago the sheriff dept. had brotherhood - it does not now.

Probably was at his weekly "cleansing". What SGs supporters should be more concerned about is SG's health. He looks terrible, has publicly said the biggest mistake of his WHOLE career was eating too much junk food.?!?!?!? and apparently that along with the pressure of the campaign is getting to his digestive system. While we are cleansing, Topdog1, I mean CARL, you have asked not to be mentioned on this forum, you should stay off of it if you cant handle the HEAT. You should also be a little more CIVIL to your fellow deputies who are supporting the man who signs their checks. What you did yesterday while driving your UNIT on DUTY was out of line. I hope you sleep well tonight. You owe that man an apology, he has never done you wrong, nor ever spoken ill of you. EVER. Why should GP or anybody attend a booby trap forum set by Mr. Lawrence, another SG supporter that was run off from the office for his inability to conduct himself properly around female subordinates? Cant all of you see this campaign is simply fueled by hate and promises of jobs to unqualified people? You are not invisible. We will not forget the mistreatment. HiC

I would have hoped that as much press that was out there during the search for the serial killer, that everyone would have known who the Chief of Police was for Baton Rouge--Pat Englade. If memory serves me correct he became the Chief in January, 2001.

EBRSO DEPUTY
EBRSO DEPUTY

I'm so pissed off right now with Sid, his supporters, and all these damn lies being spread by both. This morning, I heard a NEW radio commerical for SG. It was done by Lynn Marino, the mother of Pam Kinamore, a DTL victim. News Flash poeple. Sheriff Greg Phares was not even in Law Enforcement during the DTL murders. He had already retired from BRPD and was working the Anti Terriost school. As far as this AD that SG is running about serial Killers, you know which one I'm talking about, where BRPD Detective (Odom) brought the serial killer theroy to GF and was told to bury it. Then GF had to apologize to him, in the meantime 63 women died. NEVER HAPPENED. GF own Chief of Detectives said it never happened. Odom did file a suit against GF, but it was because GF said that Odom had a drinking problem. (Like that's news) Odom dropped the suit and paid the court cost because he had no case. Why you ask? Because he WAS a drunk. Didn't have a thing to do with any serial Killer theory. SG entire ad campaign against GF is made up lies, no truth to any of it. Now I get on here this morning and I find one of SG supporters calling Deputy's worthless. I'm fed up with all this crap. I, nor any other deputy has to talk about GF quailfications. There well documented. We all have tried numerous times to point them out to all of the SG supporters, but all we ever hear from any of them is made up crap about GF. Never anything positive about their own canidate. That's because there is nothing positive they can say about him. The fact that he did not show this morning on WJBO should tell you all something. If you believe he didn't show because of a funneral, I've got a nice bridge to sell you. If any of you really believe that the Sheriff's Office would be a better place under SG, then you're much dumber than any of us thought. Your man has lied from the begining and continues to do so. Now he doesn't show up for his free time on WJBO. Again, not for a funneral, but more than likely because he doesn't want to take calls from the public and have to answer questions about his false attack ads.

Oh, and did anyone listen to WJBO Friday morning? Sid was supposed to field calls for a half hour, but did not show up or call in. They could not get him on the phone. This, after both he and his campaign people said he would be there. His campaign people claimed he was at a funeral, but as the hosts pointed out, wouldn't he have known about it yesterday when he accepted the invitation? Who dies and schedules the funeral the next morning? If you want him as Sheriff, get used to his not being accessible, not returning phone calls, and not being able to be located. But it's OK, because he is a member of many organizations and committees.

Central Citizen, please do not critize for thing you know nothing about. I was involved in the investigation regarding the motor pool. It was found to have been a continuation of a practice that dated back many years, and the administration was not aware of it until it came to light. It was investigated and resolved. The one deputy who was transferred was transferred for other reasons, prior to the investigation, including leaving a knife where the inmates had access to it. The supervisor who eventually resigned was in trouble more for being untruthful than for what he did. The other deputy who was investigated admitted what he had done, received a harsh suspension, but is still at work in the same capacity. Typical of those who oppose the Sheriff, you have rumor and not facts. That should be expected from someone who cannot even spell Bud's last name correctly.

points well taken regarding barnett and conner. they hold great power with the sheriffs office and will continue to do so as long as phares is in place. i do not like hearing all the mess of them having info on each other but too many deputies still there say it is true. that is upsetting to me. if it takes cleaning house with the few bad then so be it. if phares is elected they will remain in power. if gautreaux is elected hopefully they will leave on their own and the good people will be able to do their jobs unfettered. no one gets into law enforcement without a heart for the people. sometimes a few go astray and those need to go. i am also voting against phares and voting for gautreaux.
