Chris Shawkey, Costa Mesa Police Chief, Resigns Under Cloud of Corruption

Shawkey.jpg
While Costa Mesa city workers still try to figure out how to beat back the job chops proposed by carpetbagging council member Jim Righeimer, at least there's now $200,000 that can go to save a couple of workers: Police Chief Chris Shawkey has resigned.

Shawkey, of course, had been on paid administrative leave since last year because of an ongoing investigation into allegations he misspent funds for personal use. The investigation was launched by City Attorney Allan Roeder but is no longer headed by him: He "retired" two days ago.

And now, the thoughts of Costa Mesa's best chronicler, Geoff West of A Bubbling Cauldron:

Actually, he hasn't much to say on the subject, instead devoting the majority of his blog post on Shawkey's resignation to bashing longtime Costa Mesa racialist Martin Millard. But read him, anyway. As for the reasoning for Shawkey's sudden resignation? Details to come . . . most likely provided by R. Scott Moxley or Matt Coker . . .

@Ltpar Right... In this case the "1%" was a police chief

Checked by police supervisors, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and the courts system? It's a perfect example of one hand washes the other. The police departments in the most affluent communities are there to protect money, period. They couldn't care less if you're poor or disadvantaged. The police are used as pawns by the prison system, arresting as many defenseless citizens as possible to continue the crooked business of locking people up. If you're rich, you simply pay a toll and don't do time, it's so evident, look at Paris Hilton or Lindsey Lohan. The whole system is putrid and rotted from the inside out.

From a retired police officer to the average Joe. Folks just assume that because someone is a police officer he or she must be honest and have integrity.

Folks you couldn't be more wrong. 72% of all written arrest reports are filled with false reporting of facts intentionally. In other words the police officers are criminals but are wearing uniforms. There is so much corruption in Law Enforcement if known by the public it would be riots in the streets.

I personally believe very little the police report on an arrest or what someone did or didnt do.

Yeah, you probably shouldn't believe most of those reports. .

I've even seen cops prosecuted in this county by use of false and/or misleading information & court testimony. It's a dirty, nasty fact.

Go breed a hooded clan or join the growing Gestapo that pass as protectors of citizens, at least be honest, come out and and proclaim your belief in white superiority and elitism. At least the KKK is honest.
