SHERIFF DAVID BERNERD SHOAR f/k/a "HOAR" (R-PROCTORVILLE), the developers' tedious teaboy, has not filed to run for re-election. Under FBI investigation and a cloud of corruption, SHOAR is planning to retire and back a former acolyte, or maybe run two to confuse us.
Former County Commission Chairman Ben Rich called rapacious developers "worse than any carpetbagger." SHOAR was their obscene agent, as revealed by FBI tapes where SHOAR spoke to developer mouthpiece GEORGE MORRIS McCLURE about discouraging public participation in development orders in St. Johns County.
Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, the anti-hero of September 2, 2010 (where was he the night Michelle O'Connell was shot to death in the home of Deputy JEREMY BANKS, which SHOAR claims to have been a "suicide") is running away from his execrable record.
Everyone knows about him, thanks to The New York Times, PBS Frontline, et al.
Without devious DAVID SHOAR running the remnants of the LAWRENCE O. DAVIS/NEAL PERRY political machine, what criminaloid personality will take his place to chill, coerce and intimidate protected activity?
Prediction: No one.
Prediction: We get to elect an honest Sheriff next year --- I support Debra Maynard. It's time for a change.
