Let’s resolve the Houston County DVD cover up
To the Editor:
The new year is always a good time to start things with a clean slate. In that spirit, I would like some closure to the DVD taping scandal in the Houston County courthouse.
Last year I wrote a letter seeking information on just who did the DVD copying on county time with county equipment. No answer.
It’s now evident from the rumor mill that the taping took place in the Sheriff’s Department. I sincerely hope that that’s not why this has taken so long and cost the county thousands of dollars to investigate.
Two employees were reprimanded, both denied doing the taping but acknowledged knowledge of the activity.
Once again, who did the DVD taping? Did they sell the DVDs or was it for personal use? Having worn out county equipment, evidently many DVD’s were produced, what happened to them?
Law enforcement always must be held to a higher standard to assure the public that the people who hold them accountable to laws are themselves obeying those very laws.
Let’s quit the cover up and resolve this situation. If there was illegal activity taking place let’s hold the perpetrators accountable just like any ordinary citizen and move on!
