Ya all heard of the, snicker, Southern Hospitality, well the 'good ole boy' attitude in politics, business, religion carries into the law enforcement as well:

"In my personal opinion," Chester resident James Simpson said. "It shows the corruption of the police department here."

Simpson claims holding on to warrants to protect alleged criminals is a way of life in Chester.

"It's all about who you know around here," Simpson said. "And who knows you. It's been like that for years, as long as I can remember and I was born and raised here."

Former Sheriff speaks out after hundreds of arrests warrants found

Jan 24, 2013 - Chester County's newest Sheriff Alex Underwood has been in office only 15 days, and is already dealing with a nightmare when it comes to paperwork.

A conference room table at the Law Enforcement Complex in Chester is stacked with hundreds of arrest warrants that have either been unserved or not entered into a database that tells deputies a subject has an warrant for their arrest.  read more>>>

More are being found still!!

Now the new sheriff, as said in above, just took office and he got smacked with that 'good ole boy' politics real fast while he and his family were away at a Martin Luther King day celebration this past Sunday. This one just aired yesterday while the one on the warrants was reported today.

Chester Co. Sheriff: Someone poisoned my dog over politics

Jan 23, 2013 - An investigation is underway after the newly-elected Chester County Sheriff says someone came to his home and poisoned his dog.

Sheriff Alex Underwood talked to WBTV on Wednesday and says his 19-month-old German Sheppard was poisoned on Sunday.

"I don't think anybody actually drove down into the driveway but I think they came into the gate and gave it to him," Underwood said. "To me that's a cowardly act, and to be honest with you - I'd much rather they come deal with me."

Sheriff Underwood doesn't mince his words when it comes to who he thinks killed his dog.

"These what we call 'the good old boys' around here," he said. "They not men, they cowards and I'll tell any of them."

Underwood says he knows who's behind the dirty deed. And his answer as to why, points straight to politics.

"There's a small group of people here in Chester County that think they run everything the way they want it to be run and for who they want it to be run for. And those days are over."  read more>>>

And the Country, hell the World, watches, hears and even sometimes reads what these pols in DC, out of that Southern Hospitality, put forth when hired to represent which then affects the whole Country. No wonder they all watch the FOX and tune in to the rush and rush wanna-be's!

Speaking of tepublican politics, the TEA, once known as GOP and they still call themselves republicans, are in Charlotte NC and just opened up their conference, they've been sending out news flashes for idea's from the cult on what to do, on what they need to do to win, even the Newt is there. Guess what, bad weather must be a sign wherever they go, there's an ice storm forecast for tomorrow, the road crews have been laying the slag on all the main roadways all day and schools are either canceled or closing early tomorrow as it's supposed to hit in the afternoon. You would think, I mean they say they're 'god fearin', that messages are being sent from above, especially when they've called for idea's to be put forth from the flock!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
