On the defensive, embattled three-term St. Johns County Sheriff DAVID BERNERD SHOAR f/k/a "HOAR" has abruptly cancelled a Twitter chat set for 11 am to 1 pm on Thursday, October 8th.
SHOAR "postponed" the chat, citing apparent pretextual reasons, after having ducked out of appearing at the "National Night Out" on October 6, 2015 (two days after Michelle O'Connell's 30th birthday.
SHOAR f/k/a "HOAR" is as nervous as a proverbial "whore in a Baptist church."
As William F. Buckley, Jr. would say, "Why does baloney reject the grinder?"
Everyone concerned about public official integrity is looking forward to questioning Sheriff SHOAR in public on video -- he refused to answer any questions from The New York Times and PBS Frontline in 2013 on the September 2, 2010 shooting of Michelle O'Connell in the home of Deputy JEREMY BANKS, and sequelae.

(Ed's Note: No byline usually means it's not reporting, but a press release)
Thursday’s twitter chat with Sheriff David Shoar has been postponed.
The Sheriff’s Office has received an “overwhelming response,” to the chat, so Shoar asked that a platform be found that will allow him to answer questions without limitations, according to a release from the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office.
Twitter limits responses to 140 characters, and that may not be enough to answer complex questions, the release said.
Until a new (sic) platform (sic) is found, Shoar will be accepting (sic) questions from the public via email.
Anyone with questions can email Shoar at AskTheSheriff@sjso.org.
