To make this right, they should order a fleet of Batmobiles from this guy and make the SMC sheriffs drive around in them. Batman suits optional.

" "the evidence does not warrant criminal prosecution" and that "the actions of Mr. Racop are best dealt with in civil court proceedings.""

"After reviewing all the emails between the two parties, Wagstaffe said it was "fairly apparent" that any potential wrongdoing did not constitute a criminal offense"

Then why did Wagstaffe pursue a criminal case? It never did warrant criminal prosecution. This was two corrupt individuals doing a favor for a wealthy resident. Nothing more. I'm sure it cost Racop money for attorneys. And we know it cost us to fly four deputies to Indiana to serve a warrant that should never have been issued. It is likely to cost residents even more money when Racop gets done suing the county. So glad Bolanos will be out of office soon.

" in the spring, Anagnostou, whose realty corporation gave $1,000 to the reelection campaigns of both Wagstaffe and Bolanos,"

And there it is. If you're wealthy and donate money to the corruptocrats in this county you get special treatment. It's disgusting.

It's astonishing how Wagstaffe is commenting in this article like a bystander to the situation versus an essential element who was required to carry out the misconduct by Bolanos.
