An investigation of Maketa is still going on seeking to find the truth which could potentially bring criminal charges to Maketa as well as to all who participated, conspired, destroyed evidence and hid facts on our once beloved Sheriff’s now exposed narcissistic and tyrannical activities. This investigation is fast becoming a farce in the world of due process and jurisprudence. What remains is an investigation that is like a huge old dog that is sleeping. No one wants to wake the dog, as they fear they will get bit.
Why be afraid of being bit when we all know that the truth shall set you free? District Attorney, Dan May and Attorney General John Suthers prefer the sounds of silence instead of steadfastly acting to put an end to the investigation and indict the Sheriff and all who have participated in these crimes and misdemeanors. I can only assume that May and Suthers don’t want to bring down the Sheriff as they both have eyes on future elected posts. That sleeping dog must have rabies.
Outside of Commissioner Littleton who has been incessantly asking our D.A. to end the investigation, we have a number of county commissioners, the county attorney, the county administrators past and present, the county budget officer and God only knows who else who are complicit and just as guilty as our accused Sheriff. They too fear that old mean dog and the bite that they must endure to allow the truth to prevail. In my humble opinion, they all must publicly acknowledge the truth and resign and allow the law to take its course. That is the right thing to do as representatives for the people they have sworn to serve.
Then we have the hypocrisy that is quite ripe in the Sheriff’s office. Behind the Badge, the Sheriff’s Office employee’s newsletter, we find a great example of hypocrisy in the August edition:
Internal Affairs Case Summary:
Allegation: Obedience to Orders,Fraternization, and Departing from the Truth
Summary: A civilian employee engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a fellow employee and departed from the truth when questioned during the investigation.
Allegation: Obedience to Orders and Fraternization
Penalty:20 Hours Suspension w/o Pay and Remedial Training
Summary: A deputy engaged in an inappropriate relationship with a fellow employee
I’m stunned that this was even published in the newsletter. Our Sheriff Deputies and civilian employees must not be subjected to such two-faced hypocrisy. It is time for Sheriff Maketa to resign and for the investigation to end. The investigation’s conclusion will likely bring indictments for the perpetrated crimes. This malfeasance is not only limited to the Sheriff; it is rife throughout the hierarchy of the county with both elected and appointed positions. This is why the investigation is that old sleeping dog.
When and if the investigators and the D. A. decide to finally bring indictments, it will rock our county’s foundation of representation. The indictments will be painful and eye opening, but it must happen; for the truth being brought to light can only begin to repair the citizen’s faith in their local government and law enforcement. That sleeping dog must be awakened; a few people will get bit if we are to once again have faith in a virtuous government of the people, by the people.
