Dover Delaware, 2012
On October 6, 2012 in Dover Delaware this blogger was confronted with claims of a lynching, an attempted lynching and a cover up that were not immediately credible ... Here is my weblog as I struggle to place in some kind of order all the information coming in since then. Although the topics in this blog have grown beyond the original case, still ongoing and unsolved to the minds of many, the focus is the same. Equal protection under the law.

Puppies, Putzes, and Power. Is it Kent County Levy Court or Kent Kounty Levy Kourt?
Cathy, myself, Carol Furr and many others have been very vocal in trying to get accountability for our local animal control/dog control contractor. The night this picture was taken, we were about to make comments at a meeting of the Kent County Levy Court pursuant to Chester County SPCA being an interim dog control agency between FSAC/KCSPCA quitting on September 15 and the state taking over on December 31.
Your respondent has been active on the issue of citizen's rights being violated by the dog catcher for a good three years, Cathy and others longer than that. So it's good to see them on the way out.. sort of.
Now Kent County Levy Court has decided to swear in four former FSAC/KCSPCA officers to work for Chester County SPCA in this 'interim'. One of them being 'officer' Sandy Galloway. Highlights, had children removed from a home with a false complaint to Child Protective Services, was the person who obtained the warrant that led to her organization being nullified by statute. Bad actor.
Commissioner Sweeney stated that he hadn't done his political career any favors by standing up to the previous contractor. Refreshing candor but still a troubling statement on many levels. Our servants are supposed to serve, not worry about political fortunes, that such a statement needs to be made is a problem. Not Commissioner Sweeney's problem alone either.
A senior officer from FSAC hired by CCSPCA said that ACOs' weren't allowed to cite for dog at large without seeing the offense or a witness ( bullshit, it's not a probable cause misdemeanor to the best of my knowledge and super cop should know that... ) Then Sherene Lindo spoke. Awkward, she is selling her house and Delaware is going to lose a highly educated nurse, paralegal, veteran and decent American behind being arrested not once but twice on bullshit charges with no witness and no probable cause.
At the end of the day, it is business as usual at Kent County Levy Court, Given the abuse of African Americans like Sherene Lindo, Dr. Jahi Issa, and paralegal EShed Alston, at the hands of the former Dog Control Officer coupled with the aftermath of the Le Mar Gunn election scandal, should we change the name to Kent Kounty Levy Kourt?
Fair question, or over the top? Depends on your vantage point I reckon.
