    Sheriff Rupf

I've mentioned that Contra Costa County has a history of corruption and LE could be involved in a cover-up. I've been following a local newspapers forum and several have posted comments about this and about Sheriff Rupf. The following is a post from that site:

    Tuesday, 10/06/2009 - 4:37 p.m. PDT
    "It is with great hesitation that I admit the following: I am currently a deputy sheriff for the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Office, AND I agree with allegations read in this thread of Sheriff Rupf's malicious conduct. I have witnessed Rupf's behavior which some have called "criminal."

    http://forums.contracostatimes.com/topic/your-turn-contra-costa-sheriff-rupfs-stand-up-was-political-posturing#new

    There are also other posts worth reading. Remember, Sheriff Rupf apologized after PG's arrest, then shortly after announced his retirement.
    (thanks i.b.nora)

    but I hope JC will get his retirment fund and more.

    Rupf's pension will be $200,000 a year according to sources at the Contra Costa Times!

    I don't know if the allegations are true, but I thought we should have it here to discuss and to have a thread for adding information as we get it.

    2sisters: Since you live in Antioch, hence Contra Costa County, I can understand your wanting to know more about your elected Sheriff. I don't live there, although I am in the general area, and I have to admit that my life is not really directly affected by him or the Department.

    I have been carefully reading those posts at The Contra Costa Times forum, and I it seems to me that the poster RuffNtuff is actually the same guy that appears on that video at yesterday's Board of Supervisors meeting. He is the same guy I pointed out on that other thread last night. He has his own agenda, and honestly I just can't get behind his cause. Frankly, I think he is lying. But, that's just me.
    He was awarded a large 5 figure settlement (or, if he is to be believed, he was forced to settle). A large 5 figure settlement could be as much as $99,999.00. So, was he filing suit for more than that? I really can't figure out why exactly he is soooooo disgruntled. And, his real beef is with some Lieutenant, now Captain.

    The other shocking things that I think the same RuffNtuff refers people to is another forum where the people are all talking about how bad all the area Sheriffs are because they do not support what they call CCW, which I believe is about permits to 'Carry Concealed Weapons'. Just what you need in Antioch, right?

    I will keep looking, but I can't find anything that would make me think that Rupf has been detrimental to Contra Costa County. And, as far as the pension goes, well it goes with the job. I think its a little high myself, but it is up to the voters to get active about all that stuff.

    The fact that a deputy screwed up that visit really wasn't good. But, I don't think its something that anyone should get fired over. Maybe the deputy should get some kind of penalty, but unless, he has a history of bad performance or continues to make poor decisions, then I just don't think he should be fired. Those are my current thoughts.

    as much as the patrol officer screwed up by not even checking the yard he didnt have the info that garrido was a RSO either. so there's plenty of blame to go around here.

    Who exactly was supposed to give him the info that Garrido was a sex offender? It's not like someone is going to follow him around giving him the information on all the people he is asked to check on.
    He's not done the background check, obviously. The campus cops did the background check on Garrido when he showed up there to distribute literature. Why didn't this officer just do the same thing?

    I don't think he ever did a background check.
    I fail to see how it would not be in the records. Garrido registered as a sex offender in CA since 1999.

    Whomever it was that was "supposed" to give that info to the officer obviously didn't. Point is, in this day and age with the technology that is out there, he could have simply got it himself. If the Berkeley campus cops can do it, why can't the CC Sheriff's dept???? There is NO excuse for NOT knowing that this guy was a registered sex offender........NONE! Holy cow, you'd think it would be their homework if nothing else!!!!

    I don't think anybody is supposed to be giving info to the officer. I would think the officer himself should be doing background checks, just like Berkley campus cops did. Even Garrido's neighbor found out Garrido was a sex offender by looking in the database.

    I remember reading, and I have no idea where or when, that the SO computers were down and that he should have checked later when they were back up, but didn't.

    It is not as if only one time complaint on PG: Seems to me several times different neighbors placed a complaint. I know that if someone gets a ticket for their driving, a cop can check them in a minute, and find out if they have more tickets, warrants, prison records it takes but one minute. We are in the computer age. they no longer have to go look chit up on index cards filed somewhere.

    When I work on something I gather my own info...As the LE & PO should have
    Women are Angels.
    And when someone breaks our wings,
    we simply continue to fly... on a broomstick.

    We're flexible like that.

    To me it seems that is just a BS excuse.
