So The Chief Wants to Restore Trust

So the chief wants to restore trust huh? The AJC article makes it sound as if Chief Cedric is responsible for thug drug dealers posing as police officers. That responsibility lays with the hiring practices and low hiring standards put into place before his arrival.

But what Chief Cedric is responsible for, is allowing a officer in command, who lied to a grand jury investigating the corruption of Burrell Ellis, to remain employed and to remain in a command position.

Former Deputy Chief Lane-Woodward, now captain, lied to a special grand jury. A criminal offense. A felony offense. And Chief Cedric honestly thinks the public, let alone honest police officers can trust him?

We're not fooled. Burrell hired him to do his dirty work, and he's doing it.

The problem is that he talks a bad game, but his actions do not support his verbal commitments.

What about Andrew Baker? But don't mess with people like Andrew Baker because he know people (Burrell Ellis). Birds of a feather flock together.

Lane-Woodard-Williams, etc. is leaving at the end of the month. ... I find it very hard to believe that she's willing to take such a huge hit on her pension when she's so close. Perhaps she (like Wiz) was given an ultimatum...

I seen her last week at East Precinct, and accordingly she was walking wth her head down.
I couldnt even stomach looking at her knowing her criminal past, dont expect much respect outa me.
And who the hell would trust anyone hired by Ellis.

Anonymous said...

Don't trust anyone hired by Ellis or socialize with Ellis. When will be his day in court? By working for Dekalb, can I serve on the jury? If so.....

Please tell me she's taking Rutland with her! Those two are one in the same.

Restore trust? This is the same chief who said 'Ellis is an honest man!' We are doomed.

Why do you say that? It has come to the point in this department that any supervisor who seeks to hold anyone accountable for rules and doing their job is trash and some of you want to get rid of them. I think there is a close correlation between this attitude and the amazing lack of discipline that exist in this department. One of the big reasons why the the firings, the arrests and the embarrassment will continue.

Its a wonder that this department has anyone to trust, like, or work with.

As a reader, I have never seen so much hate among employees as I have read on this blog. It is funny at times and I am curious why no one has gone "postal" yet.

We all read about the wars going on in the Middle East and see no difference between the Middle East and DeKalb County employees.

Come on people......Either get serious about your job or get the hell out of here. Trust is the big thing that a law enforcement department needs to succeed or it is doomed.

Anon 10:36 pm, you must not be familiar with her history, or you are good friends with her. Do we need to bring it all out here, all the times she got away with stuff because of Woodard?

Anonymous said...

10:36. In your reference to 4:02,do your research. This person practically lived in I.A. during her formative years. Cases of untruthfulness,changing statements,and after given rank,changing investigating officers incident reports to reflect what "she" thought they should. She had "a lot of real close supervisor friends". She needs to go because she is just one more "empty uniform",in this dept.. She will eventually wind up like Williams/Woodard.

red said...

7:05. Don't even give her a second thought. Like any other,old stray alley cat,she will land on her feet somewhere else. I doubt she will be prosecuted for G.J. perjury,or it would have already been announced by now.(I think that the D.A. gets really,super confused,when he is tasked with doing more than one thing at a time)! Bet she wind's up either on the S.O.,or Marta.(Marta hired "all" of our former derelict supervisor's,fired for "all of their" usual transgressions !!

10:40AM, you're right! I heard Woodard Williams was spotted recently hanging out with KK Jones! That's the guy who got caught shredding documents in IA after he left IA, then he went to MARTA PD and totaled his take home car while reeking of alcohol and refusing a breathalyzer! Those two are also one in the same when it comes to integrity! What was KK shredding, why would Thomas Brown hire someone like that, and what does he think hiring someone like Woodard Williams will do for his run for Congress?

The clean up needs to start at the top of DeKalb County, Florida....The officers learn from what they see. It starts at the CEO, to Wiz Miller, and continues to trickle on down to the line officers. WTH...If the top can take bribes and steal, why can't the rest. Nothing seems to happen to them. This entire department is doomed, just a matter of time.

She was hanging out with that snake and liar KK Jones and HER BEST FRiend Katina Biggs, whom she got into IA after making Lt. HAMILTON accept her into auto theft which no one wanted to do.

This is Kyle K. Jones, after getting a few calls about my name being mentioned again on this blog by some cowards that refuse to identify themselves . I feel it's time to set the record straight because obviously you coward individuals, who seek to throw rocks and hide have got it all wrong.

Let me start with my career at Dekalb County Police Department. I always gave respect to my peers, supervisors and subordinates, at the sametime, I demanded the same. I fought for the integrity of the Police Department and for the safety of the citizens. See its the fact I fought for integrity and made sure that i held all employees to the same standerd or made sure other around me did the same. Because of that you low self esteem and no confidence having cowards where created. So you in return created tall tales, lies and fabricated stories about me to some how make you feel better about yourself after you or someone you knew had an encounter with me while i was doing my job investigating something and the result were not in your favor.
Never have the findings of any of my investigation or any investigator that worked under my supervision have ever been overturned in any way and on a few occasions they have been upheld by the 11th circuit court of appeals. Enough said about that.

However, lets set the record straight since some of you like to talk negative about K.K. Jones. I never shredded any file, while I was employeed with Dekalb Police or when I was a Sergeant in Internal Affairs feel free to contac your former Chief Bill Obrien or make a formal request to the new Chief and have him respond.

Second, I never was involved in a accident while ever employed for any agency and was ever accused or suspected of being under the influence of alcohol. I was involved in a accident in my Marta take home vehicle, that I was legally allowed to use as a 24 hour on call commander of Internal Affairs and Public information Officer. That accident took place in Gwinnett County at about 4:30 am around the corner my Parents home.

I will encourage you, if you want or care about the truth to contact Gwinnett Police and they will confirm I was never suspect of being under the influence of alcohol nor was I the at fault driver. You can also feel free to contact the Chief of Marta police, Chief Wanda Dunham and she will also confirm that their investigation did not reveal I was under the influence of alcohol. My POST records can be obtained through a open records request, so I challenge you to look there.

Since I started employment with Dekalb County in 1995, i have been committed to bring quality law enforcement services to its citizens, quality Stewartship to my colleagues and subordinates. I have spent countless hours grooming employees for supervisory posisition as well as mentoring others in there rolls as supervisors. Many of the officer that have worked for me or close with me have gone on to federal law enforcement jobs or became supervisors in law enforcement either in Dekalb Police Department or other surrounding agencies.

I have help many in law enforcement officer in there time of need when no one else would, with help to find places to stay after apartments cancle their rent free contract at the last minute, get their kids legal assistance, help move, get transportation, find jobs and the list goes on.

That's all I have to say, I will not respond to any more of you cowards, who only way to vent about your failures in your own career is to come on this blog and trash others and in addition that lack the courage to leave your name.
I will say, i am easy to be reached at any time you want to talk or if there is anything I can do to help you please feel free to contact me. As you may know if you didnt already I reside, work and play in Dekalb cause i believe in Dekalb!!!!
Have a great and bless day.

Yours Truly
Kyle K. Jones

Don't forget the time Woodard Williams forced Major Felony to bring in Sgt Rutland, who never worked a case a day in her life, but wanted to be seen on the First 48.

Tom Brown is smart,hiring KK Jones, Cato, Baptiste, Chris Patterson, Jeff Mann, and now Lane Woodard Williams. They all can be trusted to do his dirty work. What else do they all have in common?

Anonymous said...

KK,

You know that stuff is all true. Why did you run from DKPD? Why did you run from MARTA right after that accident if you did nothing wrong?

For a Lt. serving as a Public Information Officer, your grammar is atrocious. We all make typos here and there, but you should be embarrassed by that post. I wouldn't let a rookie on FTO get away with turning in a report that poorly written.

"Second, I never was involved in a accident while ever employed for any agency and was ever accused or suspected of being under the influence of alcohol. I was involved in a accident in my Marta take home vehicle, that I was legally allowed to use as a 24 hour on call commander of Internal Affairs and Public information Officer. That accident took place in Gwinnett County at about 4:30 am around the corner my Parents home. "

First you say you were never in an accident while employed by any agency, then you talk about the accident you had with your MARTA car that you were allowed to drive 24 hours a day. Which is it? You're not too bright, are you? Were you drinking when you wrote that mess?

KK, is it true that a former Assistant Chief's daughter was arrested by DeKalb PD a few months ago for driving with no license, but instead of being booked into jail like anyone else would have been, you walked her from intake to the front door of the jail?

KK it's about time somebody start calling these scabs out, they even fumbled around trying to type there response like you were standing behind them, you still have them shanking over here. The fool did not even make any since with his response. It reminds me of 2001 South Precinct Morning watch when you had them shaking and running from the watch. They know who they are hahahaha #copgetagrip

Jones it's seems like they really have a hard on for you and just are not strong enough to come to you man to man. Law Enforcement is not personal, it's business. You always treated me good.. Let the truth be told, I would not have got a chance to go to CID had it not been for you ........

Anonymous 10:22PM,

Here is what I recognized: KK's rant looks like it was written by an English as a second language junior high school dropout. He has words used incorrectly, words spelled wrong, run on sentences galore and verb tenses that don't agree with the rest of his sentences all over the place! This guy is a PIO? Doesn't that job require at least a minimal command of the English language? You say we're the ignorant ones? That's a good one! If his rant impressed you, that's really sad.

Anonymous said...

Since you seem to be a English major and a proven hit dog, post your contact information so he can contact you for lessons. If your not going to do so SHUT UP already. "KK Jones for President !!!!" Better yet, "KK Jones for Chief of Dekalb Police." Now run with that, Sgt we miss you!!

Anonymous said...

Anon 1:48 AM,

Where were any KK critics fumbling? The only fumbling I saw was when someone quoted him. He really needs a someone to proofread his writing.

"There" and "their" do not mean the same thing and cannot be used interchangeably. By a dictionary and look up the difference.

"Since" and "sense" do not mean the same thing and cannot be used interchangeably. "Since" is used in conjunction with a period of time, or it can be used to explain a reason for something occurring. For example, "Since KK Jones left DKPD, everyone is much happier." "Sense," which is the word you should have used, is something you are severely lacking.


Did anyone else notice that the first two posts defending KK were made one right after the other, then the second two posts defending him were made 15 hours later, one right after the other?

Anonymous said...

I remember KK from South Morning Watch. He was a punk ass then and he's a punk ass now.

Only people running away were the ones who wanted no part of his ignorant ass.

KK why are you on here defending yourself? You used to tell me, "Fuck them let them talk" so I'm giving you advice that you gave to me because you know these are your HATERS!!!

Haters? Are you a 15 year old teen mother? Please tell me you're not an officer.

Just look at the ignorance level in the posts from KK and his fan club. That says it all.

Anonymous said...

Can any one tell me why Jones' typo's are in question and not how he told y'all idiots off. I bet a million dollars that no one will check out his facts. He gave you where to look and who to ask.. But I'm sure this is the same officer who don't know how or where to go to check, even with good directions. Way to go KK.

If K.K. was such a sh*t hot "polese",why did he leave? I thought he left town with the posse hot on heel's,when he went to M.A.R.T.A.?

Who really gives a sh*t about K.K. anymore? He is gone! Way to many other folk's you have to watch around here. Don't worry about the one's that are long gone,like Frank,Woodard,Wiz,West,Moody. You better focus on the "real" problems that are still here,like Curtis Williams,Rutland,the chief,and the rest of the incompetent "rising stars" !

If everybody want's to throw a sh*t-fit about K.K.,then why aren't we all raising pure,total,hell about the way Payton was ultimately treated,"FOR TRYING TO DO HER JOB" !! Why is the "laughable D.A.",or THE D.O.J, not launching an investigation into Wiz and Woodard for obstruction? That's what we should ALL be throwing a mega sh*t- fit about!!!

Maybe the Dekalb police should refrain from drop kicking pregnant women in the belly. Maybe police officers who perform such assaults should be imprisoned.

red said...

Why hell,you can't sling a cat, south of 78, w/o hitting a pregnant female. Can you narrow it down?

Anonymous said...

4:08pm, pregnant females shouldn't charge at police officers, which is why that officer was cleared of wrong doing. If that pregnant girl didn't run at the officer, she wouldn't have run into to his foot when he put it up to block the attack he anticipated from her. Maybe she should learn how to control herself and her stupid punk brother that was getting tasered.

Anonymous said...

Didn't that Sh-----t with pregnant woman happen years ago. Why is this mess being brought back up. I guess someone has been assigned to a position that you don't like. Old f---ing news. Leave Dept if you are not competent enough to get specialized position or get promoted. Brookhaven is hiring slugs.
