Grants Pass, Oregon. —Josephine county jail is about to implode under the direction of Sheriff Daniel. Sheriff Daniel doesn’t understand his job, procedures, and why things are set up the way they are, yet he just hap hazardly changes procedures and rules.
Prisoners have been on lock down for 23 hrs a day for weeks now, with their rights and privileges taken away and that’s not only a civil right violation but violations of corrections laws, regulations, including human rights violations.
The Sheriff has irresponsibly blown through the overtime budget, has fired 5 women from the force trying to extricate the women from the jail staff and is in the process of laying-off 16 corrections officers. Do you want to give Daniel more money to keep spending uncontrollably?
This is from the front page of the Sheriff website;
The Josephine County Adult Jail incarcerates offenders in a humane, professionally sound manner and provides safe and secure operations. Our commitment is to provide the highest level of service. The Sheriff’s Office belongs to you and we believe in our core values of Service, Professionalism and Fiscal Responsibility.
In his attempt to extricate the women from the staff, a long time upstanding director Vicki Smith was demoted for not sending a fake email (as requested by the sheriff to do so), stating she was voluntarily quitting, so that the Sheriff doesn’t violate union laws, and she refused. The sheriff is without cause firing people and putting in his cronies whom are not qualified like Ed Vincent.
Deputy Jason Stanton after much citizen outcry needs to be fired but the Sheriff refuses to act or take responsibility for his own actions. The man is a walking time bomb at the jail.
When it comes to the Sugar Pine Mine situation things are quiet right now but Sheriff Daniel made a joke at a rotary club meeting saying after the meeting “we’re going to go out to the Sugar Pine Mine and have a paint ball fight and I’ll bring the hotdogs.” The Sheriff obviously doesn’t take his job too seriously. The situation at the mine would have never happened if Mr. Gilbertson was there because he kept the feds at bay and this cowardly Sheriff is in dereliction of his duties by allowing free reign for BLM to operate violating the mines owners rights to due process and running the jail in violation of prisoners’ rights, regulations, human rights, and laws.
NWV was told that the BLM deputy is putting his house up for sale and moving away to avoid the wrath of the angry citizens ready to crucify him for his actions.
At the Sugar Pine Mine there have been drone fly overs by DHS, two helicopters landed on top of the mine and no response from Sheriff Daniel. In fact, when asked in front of witnesses to accompany Joseph Rice up the hill to investigate the landing of those helicopters Daniels replied, he didn’t want to go and that he needed stay behind to make some phone calls.
The owners of the mine have requested his help several times but no response from the Sheriff which is supposed to be his job to protect life, liberty, and property rights. But he can certainly make it to the Rotary meeting and make jokes about an egregious situation.
How much longer are we going to allow this Sheriff to violate everybody’s rights? From the prisoners, to the citizens his bosses, to current and former staff, he’s shown no respect, empathy, or professionalism, and he’s breaking laws to accomplish his agenda.
If this isn’t the definition of a traitor to the citizens and prisoners of this county then I don’t know what is. His actions of incompetence, dereliction of duty and human/civil rights violations, have shown he’s over-ripe for a recall. Are we going to allow Daniel to implode our county jail and collapse our system of justice? People of Josephine County find it outrageous that this sheriff wants more money.
[NOTE: NWV is predicting that this sheriff (Daniel) is going to bring tons of lawsuits on the county that the people can not afford, and by the way, Daniel was heavily supported by the Daily Courier.]
