Remember the Don Rumsfeld speech regarding things we know, don't know, or know we know or don't know we don't know, etc.? The Payson Police know. The mayor and city manager knows. The terminated officer knows. Why is the Payson Roundup in the dark? Anyone want to guess? Read my previous blogs . There exists a "tangled web of deceit," lies, mishandling of evidence, and multiple violations of citizen's rights in regard to cases within the law enforcement and justice community of Payson and the county officials. Wake up Payson! Your civil rights are being compromised by individuals who exert influence over court cases, handling of documents, and misrepresentation of facts and evidence in court cases. There is a conspiracy of law enforcement officers and investigators who carry out personal vendettas not to enforce the laws but to threaten and intimidate citizens who know the inside stories that the police are hiding by releasing news on "take out the garbage" days like the week after Christmas when few are paying attention to local news (trash days that make news evaporate) So why not take the unused funds for more officers and use it to pay for more liability insurance against future lawsuits against Payson for defamation of character and slander of the victims of the scandalous police activity. It would be your tax dollars well invested and well spent.
In response to:
A Payson police officer was fired last week for unknown reasons. The town of Payson will not release the investigative report or termination letter regarding officer Mark Hillegas’ Dec. 15 firing until an appeal period ends. Hillegas has until later this month to file an appeal with the town. As of press time, Hillegas had not appealed the firing, said Police Chief Don Engler. Payson Mayor Kenny Evans said he could not disclose what Hillegas had done, but “as mayor, I understand that the termination was not for any on-the-job conduct or misconduct.”
