A bulldog! A bulldog in our midst!

Good evening, Netizens...

For the edification of those who either haven't been following local news closely or simply no longer care about such things, there is a little bulldog with a big bite running amok in the current office of the County Prosecutor, Steve (Absent-by-design) Tucker. Tucker, as recently as this afternoon, made local news headlines by firing his Deputy Prosecutor, David Stevens, because he dared to challenge Tucker in the upcoming election. However, unfortunate as it might be, David Stevens has yet to establish any credentials as a bulldog. One may hope that might come later. We need a bulldog as our County Prosecutor, not an absentee manager.

The bulldog who has proven himself quite effective at rooting out white collar crime wherever and whenever it appears is Ron Wright, (AKA Rocketsbrain), a retired Riverside, California white collar crime detective. He has proven himself to be a one-man army filing charges against the high and powerful, getting public documents that are seemingly impossible to obtain without a lot of pain, and most recently, breaking news about both Steve Tucker and Gavin Cooley, neither story which were given much coverage by the news media until recently.

His coverage about CFO Gavin Cooley's lapsed Certified Public Accountant license caught more than a few in City Government with their hands in their pockets, including Cooley himself. See the link and it will explain the facts, according to what Ron The Cop has been able to determine. He and former Sheriff Tony Bamonte are unafraid of what others might think; they will pursue what they believe to be the facts, regardless of where the rocks might fall.

But for what this is worth, this is an open door for Ron The Cop to fill in any details I may have overlooked, having just returned from a three-day work project. I am delighted to see Ron is on the job, keeping things stirred up and holding our public officials to a higher set of standards than we have become used to recently.
