The Atherton Police Department has a very public history of being dishonest, corrupt, and well documented crimes being committed by Officers and even Chiefs.
After reviewing the Daily Activity logs for January 27, & 28, 2009 I noticed something was missing.
1/27/2010 Elder Abuse: Detective Sergeant Sherman Hall Investigated and interviewed several witnesses at a local hospital.
1/27/2010 Elder Abuse: Detective Sergeant Sherman Hall prepares Emergency Protective Order based on his interviews at the hospital.
1/27/2010 Elder Abuse: Detective Sergeant Sherman Hall has Judge James Ellis sign the
Emergency Protective Order at 9:35 PM
1/27/2010 Elder Abuse: Adult Protective Services has been notified.
1/29/2010 Elder Abuse: Officer Wade served the Emergency Protective Order at the Linda Vista residence 9:09 AM
This information has been omitted from the Atherton Police Department Daily Activity Log.
What else is NOT on the Log?
Michael, in all fairness, the service of the protective order was on the web logs; I just checked.
What was missing from last week's daily activity logs will soon be revealed and it will blow even your mind let alone anyone else's. It's not the story you refer to above.
You state above that "The Atherton Police Department has a very public history of being dishonest, corrupt, and well documented crimes being committed by Officers and even Chiefs."
You remarks will be verified. Stay tuned. This is all coming to light very, very soon.
The DA's office has also been hesitant on this case for several years. If it continues to be a part of the problem, it will be very, very embarrassing very quickly.
At least the victim is safe for now.
Calm, You are right in fairness the Atherton Police did list the serving of the Emergency Protective Order activity.
09:07 FOLLOW UP 100129007
Officer on unit blk of Linda Vista Av, Atherton. Made contact with suspect, to serve EPO. EPO served, and subject left property Disposition: Settled at scene.
I personally called Sherman Hall from the Hospital around noon that day and left a message on phone, which I thanked him and said Good Job.
Residence a crime scene?
I hope the Atherton Police Department has treated the residence as a crime scene. Made sure nobody had access, after the Emergency Protective Order was served.
They have had knowledge of these allegations for years.
Mr. Stogner\'s compliment of Sherman Hall while well intentioned betray his ignorance.
The only quality Sherman Hall displayed in serving the emergency protective order is his ability to tell which way the wind blows.
As this perfect storm plays out, Sherman Hall should and will be held accountable for his prior misdeeds.
My compliment was for a specific action and a single action only.
Sherman Hall and Officer Wade declined my offer to serve the EPO, I assured them I could accomplish this for them.
They did it within 30 minutes of that conversation.
Stogner appears to be lacking some crucial information. What was happening to the victim was an open secret in Town. Sherman Hall served the EPO within 30 minutes because he knew the lid had been blown off the case.
What Hall did was nothing more than some fancy footwork to save his own bacon.
Mr. Stogner, I mean no disrespect but there is alot you don't know. As such it is wholly inappropriate for you you to leap to the defense of anyone, especially anyone in the PD as this story builds.
Stogner is blind to the fact that there is a civil war going on in town. His comments, no matter how well intentioned can have the effect of giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
