For 14 years, the Broward Sheriff’s Office has paid Miami’s Armor Correctional Health Services hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to provide healthcare services for Broward‘s jail inmates. The money flowed despite accusations of substandard care, political intrigue and disturbing disclosures about at least 15 shocking, needless deaths. Today, BSO is again soliciting bids for a new multi-year contract and Armor wants the job.

Wisconsin SWAT Team Attacks 65-Year-old Man with Parkinson’s Disease After he Called for Help

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017
A 65-year-old Wisconsin man with Parkinson’s Disease dialed 911 for a medical emergency Friday, only for a SWAT team to arrive at his home and slam him to the ground,  hospitalizing him for days.
Thomas Smith’s family is outraged, saying their relative is unable to physically speak, so he had to resort to pushing buttons on the telephone to communicate with the dispatcher.
And somehow, the dispatcher understood he was being held hostage by a man with guns and explosives, which is why Oneida County sheriff’s officials say they were only trying to keep the neighborhood safe.
Plus, they added, he was not

Wisconsin Deputy Slams 15 Shots of Vodka, Steals Man’s Sweatshirt, Passes Out in Patrol Car, Blames Bartender

Friday, January 20th, 2017
How many shots does it take for a cop to pass out in their patrol vehicle while in uniform and on-duty as a police dog helplessly sits in the backseat?
It took 15 shots of vodka for a Wisconsin deputy to do just that.
St. Croix County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Fowler ended up having a .23 blood alcohol content – nearly three times the legal limit.
In fact, Fowler still had the squad car in drive with his foot on the brake when responding officers found him passed out from his drunken stupor.
But he later blamed the bartender at the Comfort Inn

Wisconsin Sheriff David Clarke Detains Man for Looking at Him the Wrong Way on Airplane

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke had a man detained for looking at him the wrong way on an airplane Sunday.  Or for mocking him over a football game.
Or, if you believe the sheriff, for making him fear for his life.
“Next time he or anyone else pulls this stunt on a plane they may get knocked out,” the sheriff said in a statement. “I do not have to wait for some goof to assault me.”
Either way, Dan Black, 24, has filed an internal affairs complaint against the sheriff.
Black said the incident took place as he boarded a plane in Dallas to Milwaukee

Clinton team sees recount effort as waste of resources

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016
Hillary Clinton’s aides and supporters are urging dispirited Democrats to channel their frustrations about the election results into political causes — just not into efforts to recount ballots in three battleground states.
The former Democratic presidential candidate and her close aides see the recount drive largely as a waste of resources, according to people close to Clinton. The effort is being fueled by Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who’s formed an organization to try to force recounts in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
“Believe me if there was anything I could do to make Hillary Clinton the next president of the United

Donald Trump drama rolls on: Disputes, falsehoods hit transition

Monday, November 28th, 2016
The drama, disputes and falsehoods that permeated Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign are now roiling his transition to the White House, forcing aides to defend his baseless assertions of illegal voting and sending internal fights spilling into public.
On Monday, a recount effort, led by Green Party candidate Jill Stein and joined by Hillary Clinton‘s campaign also marched on in three states, based partly on the Stein campaign’s unsubstantiated assertion that cyberhacking could have interfered with electronic voting machines. Wisconsin officials approved plans to begin a recount as early as Thursday. Stein also asked for a recount in Pennsylvania and was

Experts ask Hillary Clinton to seek recount in 3 battleground states

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016
A group of election lawyers and data experts have asked Hillary Clinton‘s campaign to call for a recount of the vote totals in three battleground states — Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania — to ensure that a cyberattack was not committed to manipulate the totals.
There is no evidence that the results were hacked or that electronic voting machines were compromised. The Clinton campaign on Wednesday did not respond to a request for comment as to whether it would petition for a recount before the three states’ fast-approaching deadlines to ask for one.
President-elect Donald Trump won Wisconsin and Pennsylvania by razor-thin

Milwaukee Jailers Mock and Ignore Pregnant Inmate Going into Labor, Resulting in Baby’s Death, Lawsuit Claims

Friday, November 18th, 2016
A mentally ill inmate whose baby died after jailers laughed at her and ignored her requests for medical attention when her water broke is suing the Milwaukee County Jail where three other people have died since April.
Shade Swayzer is suing for $8.5 million, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, who is reportedly being considered to head the Department of Homeland Security in President-Elect Donald Trump’s administration, supervises the jail.
The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office released a statement just days after the baby’s death denying responsibility, saying Swayzer’s baby was stillborn and that she never told jail staff she was even going into

Award-Winning Wisconsin Cop Charged with Shooting Man in Back

Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

An award-winning Wisconsin police officer was charged with aggravated battery last week for shooting an unarmed man in the back as he lay facedown on the ground.
Brown Deer police officer Devon Kraemer claimed she shot the man “because she feared for her safety and that of her partner,” according to the complaint filed Friday, which was obtained by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
But prosecutors did not buy that story.
The incident took place on March 14, 2016. Kraemer received a “Meritorious Service Award” just a week later for an unrelated incident.

Bob Sparks: Will Republican Party of Florida force presidential candidates to attend November summit?

Thursday, September 17th, 2015
The second GOP debate is history. In a few days, polls will tell us who did well, or not so well, in the minds of voters. The final debate is set for Florida on March 10, just five days before the Florida Primary (although early voting begins March 5).
It is impossible to predict how many candidates will remain six months from now for that debate. If the Tallahassee leadership of the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) has its way, the number of candidates on the primary ballot will be determined by their response to an “invitation.”
The RPOF is considering
