While "Sleepy" Sheriff Kaelin Was snoozing, "What happened?"
Sleepy" Jim Kaelin, a man of his word? Don't be silly!!!"
When he was running for office, he blamed early releases from the jail on the former sheriffs and he said: "It will not happen on my watch"; it did, three times.
When he was running for office, he blamed the Federal Prisoner vacancies on the former Sheriff, and he stated: "I will bring them back within 60 days after I take office. It has not happened yet, two years after.
When he was running for office, he blamed the lack of clean jail cells and equipment on the former sheriffs, and now that he has received the funds from the county commissioners. Why is he still having problems with the U.S. Marshall's refusing to house their prisoners there? He has something to hide. The county as a result is loosing millions.
When the U.S. Marshalls refused to place Federal Inmates in the ANNEX due to lack of security he blamed the former sheriffs, whi is his excuse now? It has not happened and the county is loosing millions.
When he was running for office, he blamed the death (hanging) of an inmate inside the jail on the former sheriffs and he said: "It will not happen on my watch. It did several times. All survived except one -- Roberto Garcia.
When he was running for office, he blamed the accidental overdoses of inmates in holding cells on former Sheriffs, and he said "KIt will not happen on my watch. It did.
He said his experiece with DPS would help him manage the patrol division and department better, then how did three of his officers rolled and totaled out three brand new patrol cars?
When he was running for office, he said he would improve morale. Well it has not happened in the last two years. It is at an all time low.
Simply put: JIM KAELIN is not a man of his word. Jim Kaelin has failed the Sheriff's department, its employees, and most important the overall county.
