I'm pleased to read that the City Administrator is apparently taking this whole Scoles thing seriously. The pile of dogsh-t at the Chief's doorstep just keeps getting deeper.

I wonder if this will be a real investigation or a white-wash, and I wonder what will be found under the next rock to be turned over.

On City Hires Ventura Investigators for Scoles Case

East Beach:

For your edification, no connection here to Travis Armstrong or the N-P (puleeeze!) It is my understanding that the former N-P investigative columnist had personally checked out and verified all of the statements he made in his article.

How is that information irrelevant to the discussion about whether Sanchez needs to go? Isn't truthfulness, obeying the law, conning the city into a $500,000 loan and then not paying back the loan out of taxpayer funds when he had the ability to do so, lying in court, and assaulting his father-in-law relevant to his personal character? Or, to his credibility? I don't know where you draw the line on morality or credibility, but Sanchez doesn't measure up to mine (and most S.B. citizens I would guess)!

It seems to me that something important is being overlooked here. This chief has allegedly done a whole bunch of other stuff if the blogs we read are correct, and this includes the one story that circulated around many of the blogs a few weeks ago originally written by Robert Eringer, writing as "The Investigator".

He reminded all of us that Sanchez convinced the city when he got hired that he needed $500,000 to afford a home here, yet he allegedly turned around in the next two years and acquired two other homes for rental income. Did he ever think of paying back the taxpayers of this city? The part that's amazing about this is that he was reportedly a sergeant on LAPD (I read that they make well over $100,000) and obviously owned a home there. He went on to two other cities as Chief and probably owned homes there. One of these was San Rafael next to Sausalito and Marin County -- three of the wealthiest areas in the SF Bay area.

And he can't afford a home in SB on HIS salary of $200,000 a year? Three guesses -- is he a poor money manager, or a con artist, or just wanting to live above his means? (Remember he couldn't convince a jury that some guy had threatened him at a park!)

And then there's the chief who doesn't pay his bills -- skipping out on a medical bill to some laboratory which took him to small claims court where he failed to appear.

And then there was the story about Sanchez and his wife allegedly scamming her parents out of the ownership of another house and then reportedly trying to file false tax returns over the transaction.

And it got even better with Sanchez's wife's brother describing how Sanchez treated his elderly father-in-law by shoving him down a nursing home hallway and demanding that he "get the F*** out of MY town."

Well, Chief, maybe it's time for YOU to get out of OUR town!

So, almost a year later, the cops don't have anyone cooperating out of 40+ people there when the stabbing was done? Obviously, there is someone out there who knows who stabbed the victim. Why haven't they found him or her? The gangs are getting more and more violent and more aggressive, but what does our police chief do about it? Hold press conferences? Go ask city hall what to do next? Put more officers on the gangs, and this murder, sir. A surge worked in Iraq, it can work here too.
