Upcoming Changes Upsetting to Status Quo in Sheriff's Department

There's soon to be a new Sheriff in town.

Under the incoming St. Johns County Sheriff, Robert Hardwick:

  1. Body cameras will be adopted, starting with one shift.  St. Augustine Police have body cameras now, too.  9Sheriff DAVID SHOAR had rejected body cameras, saying he "rejected the false narrative that cops need to be watched."  The author of the Michelle O'Connell homicide coverup, SHOAR is retiring on December 31, 2020.o
  2. Top SJSO executive officers are being down-sized from 22 to five highly-paid apparatchiks. 
  3. Those apparatchiks who remain are now expected to show up for early morning staff meetings, at 6:30 am and 7:00 am.  They're being expected to put in a day's work for a day's pay.  No more slothful sinecures for glorified political patronage hires and janissaries. 
  4. There will be an equestrian division, with horses trained at crowd control, perhaps obtained from the City of New Orleans.
  5. At least four employees will not be sworn in when the new Sheriff is sworn in.
  6. UnderSheriff MATTHEW DANIEL CLINE is out, but could remain as lawyer.  The 2003 graduate of a failing for-profit law school, mendacious MATTHEW CLINE was most noted for his creepy, overbearing, lying, bullying ways, as demonstrated on Jeffrey Marcus Gray's video, shared by The New York Times in 2017.

This is what official oppression looks like:

MATTHEW DANIEL CLINE did not respond to an e-mail requesting comment for this story.

MATTHEW DANIEL CLINE was not even qualified to wear a gun and a badge, but the insolent, insipid CLINE was empowered with a sinecure by insecure St. Johns County DAVID SHOAR as consigliere and Under Sheriff.

CLINE was an assistant State's Attorney for RALPH JOSEPH LARIZZA, and was then hired as General Counsel by Sheriff SHOAR.  CLINE was made UnderSheriff in 2015.  

In his jobs at SJSO, MATTHEW CLINE was hostile to public participation and public records requests.  CLINE was stiff-necked, unfriendly, unsupervised and authoritarian and even supercilious in speaking to County Commissioners, like a "mini-me" of corrupt St. Johns County Sheriff DAVID SHOAR, who legally changed his name from "HOAR" in 1994.

Cashiering CLINE from the Under Sheriff job is a good sign that soon-to-be Sheriff Robert Hardwick is an ethical man.  

Unctuous, unethical, uncouth, unkind UnderSheriff CLINE was among the generous contributors to Hardwick's campaign.  

At least $3000 was contributed to Hardwick's campaign by Mr. Cline, his wife, Dr. Shelby Harper Cline, M.D., and her pediatric medical practice. 

The Cline contributions got him no kid gloves treatment.  

Other David Shoar henchmen who covered up the Michelle O'Connell case are sweating bullets tonight.

Yes, there's a new Sheriff in town.  

Sheriff Robert Hardwick takes office on January 1, 2021.
