another former Sheriff of Monterey County, ⁦@MCoSheriff⁩ Norm Hicks is a bigly sleazy figure who posts Trump levels misinformation on his Facebook.

Also, his son robbed Dave Drew of his ATM and Dave turned it into a burglary (2007) and his son-in-law and daughter are on

trial in Bakersfield CA after the State and @bakersfieldpd figured out their massive EDD fraud.

Wade Benson and Debra Hicks Benson have been lingering in the criminal courts for three years on this fraud case, why the delay?

But @MCoSheriff buried this case:

Chief Deputy Kevin Oakley helps make these mysteries happen. Oakley considers Hicks a second father and mentor. Oakley is also the guy who rushed Dave Drew's CCW permit through so the former cocaine trafficker who would once roll around with a loaded AK-47 can legally carry a

gun, anywhere in California - the entire State and no cops can harass Drew for having his gun on him.

Seems safe, considering @maryrduan claimed a Nuestra Familia infected non-profit (MILPA) was supplying Drew with contraband.

Hero to @MCoSheriff Kevin Oakley, fmr. Sheriff and all around bad guy Norm Hicks posts false info to garbage platform Facebook before Trump was elected.

I think the good folks like Sgt, Bryan Hoskins should be aware that I have communications between fmr. Sheriff Norm Hicks' son-in-law Wade Benson and @MCoSheriff Chief Dep. Kevin Oakley.

But let's keep playing games, boys.

Here is Benson/Hicks languishing case in Kern Co.

@CyFlys LAPD has a history of having very highly trained units which are capable of very serious investigations - unlike those that take place in Monterey County.

LAPD's special public corruption unit were the coppers that picked up the Communist Part in Los Angeles making a lot of 📞

@veggie64_leslie He is. He was dating a 911 dispatcher and not telling his wife he was fired by the Sheriff and criminally charged. I was talking with a @MontereyHerald reporter about it casually (@grlreporter) and she ends up calling the local DA who was sitting on it. Now they are worried about
@veggie64_leslie @MontereyHerald @grlreporter how it looks because the Herald is going to write about it and, back in the day, of their is a local reporter I love more than @Calkins_Royal, it's Julie Reynolds. She is the most honest reporter I have ever met. The most honest.

So Berk Brannon, a Deputy DA, runs out to the
@veggie64_leslie @MontereyHerald @grlreporter @Calkins_Royal .@MCoSheriff department and pulls the file on Banuelos. Brannon goes back to his office and ADDS a felony to the complaint and tells Sheriff Miller that there is so much proof that two felonies took place he added another.

Then the case sits. Miller is defeated by this crook

It was stories like this that inspired me to run Scott Miller for Sheriff against a sleazy Mike Kanalakis and the entire political apparatus of the County of Monterey.

Judge dismisses charges against man left overnight in courthouse holding cell…
2/ "Judge Tom Wills agreed with Public Defender Jim Egar that 21-year-old Elisha McCoy deserved to be cleared because of the mistake by the Monterey County Sheriff”s Office."
3/ "Chief Assistant District Attorney Terry Spitz argued against the dismissal, suggesting the judge could take McCoy”s treatment into consideration at sentencing if he decided to plead guilty or was convicted at trial."

For those local folks watching this drama play out with politics, my exceptional inside information, and the local power structure - know this - this is all well accepted practices, the calling out, the naming, the informing on those in power who let us down.

After @chief_filice
2/ swearing in at the @CityofSalinas, and even though I muttered "embarrassing" under my breath while sitting next to Salinas' best asst. City Manager (Jim Pia) - I headed over to the Bruce Taylor Starbucks Pavilion where I exchanged pleasantries, actually normal, hey neighbor
3/ hellos with several @SalinasPD good cops. Everything was fine and we all enjoyed our Taylor coffee.

Thanks Bruce, you prick. 😂

The point is, the dialogue is what matters. Less secrecy when it comes to the powerful, matters. More transparency will lead to great things here

Did you see @JoeLivernois' former employer at the @carmelpinecone, Paul Miller, writing a load of bullshit regarding @SheriffBernal's sudden and cowardly retirement claim?

First, Paul Miller "the journalist" says he doesn't know much about Bernal and that Bernal is inaccessible
2/ but goes on to attribute Bernal leaving with the fat pension the former deputy will receive which Paul Miller calculated at $166,000 per year for life.

That ignores all the fat cats and sleazy consultants like @RepJimmyPanetta's Plasha Will and all that has gone on since
3/ Bernal's election in 2014. I knew Paul Miller's editorials lean toward the wacky - like when he went after @maryrduan for winning $3.2 million dollars in the lottery versus just going after the @mcweekly's version of journalism - but in the end a majority of MoCo journalism is

Fun Seaside / Sand City fact:

Eric Dickerson had an interest in a note that was an asset of yet another Ponzi scheme "trust deeds" conman, named Don Lukens. Dickerson was a victim.
*note held a fractional share of interest in a piece of real property on the beach side of Hwy 1.
2/ That note ended up in the hands of a #Salinas based conman named Gerry Kehoe, @CASenCaballero's landlord when she first ran for State office.

Kehoe was and is an out of town loser from Key West FL, 🤔.

The OG conman, Lukins, is from Oxnard, CA.

The then Salinas City mgr
3/ working directly with Gerry Kehoe and, improperly, @CASenCaballero?

CM David Mora.

Dave had been the CM of Oxnard prior to landing at the @CityofSalinas.

Gerry Kehoe miraculously ends up with this "asset" which he buys out of Federal Bankruptcy Court in San Jose CA.
