Let’s look at the numbers
The election is only 3 days away and it looks inevitable Corrupt Sheriff Elder will win re-election. We would like to provide a couple facts to compare with the final results on Tuesday. Terry Maketa had a challenger in the general election when he ran for re-election. Maketa received 81% of the votes. In the last election Elder received 163,618 votes. It might be interesting to see what the results are this Tuesday. How many Republicans will leave the option for Sheriff blank? How many will vote for the Democrat with absolutely no experience over Corrupt Sheriff Elder?
Wouldn’t it be interesting to know how EPSO Employees voted? Based on what we are hearing Elder would be lucky to get 10%. What a slap in the face when your own employees despise you?
Corrupt Sheriff Elder will not have a legacy of greatness. He will always be known as the most corrupt sheriff ever.

Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s support falling fast
Back in June of 2018 Corrupt Sheriff Elder could only get 58% of republicans to support him for Re-Election. Only 8% saved him. Understand this was the fist time ever a first term republican sheriff in El Paso County ever had a primary challenger. Since then the word about corrupt Sheriff Elder continues to get out. Many have stated; “if I only knew that back in June I wouldn’t have voted for him, I feel so stupid”. As more evidence of his corruption gets out his support drops. By the end of his second term (if he lasts that long) everyone will know Sheriff Elder was the most corrupt sheriff ever; and the sheriff who got Micah Flick killed. He will also be known as the sheriff who protected the killers of Tom Clements. Rumor has it the reason Elder refuses to take any polygraphs is because he is afraid it will expose his involvement in the Benefiel murder and other illegal behavior to include when he worked in VNI.
There’s more coming…
It is common knowledge corrupt Sheriff Elder is a compulsive liar. He lies about everything. We have documented numerous lies. It’s even reach the point that Dirty DA Dan May can not lie for him any more.
Elder’s strategy is simple
LIE, DENY, HIDE, and let it RIDE
There is a reason everyone is leaving EPSO. Almost a 40% attrition rate since Elder took office. The leadership does not want to be there “when it hits the fan” and employees do not want to work for a corrupt sheriff. Elder has so bankrupted EPSO he now has to hire “non-sworn” deputies to man the jail. He is about to SCREW all the deputies working at the jail because it is rumored he is going to have a PATROL only academy in the spring. Plus Elder has shown he does not trust his own leadership because he is bringing in one of his old VNI buddies who only reached the rank of SGT at CSPD to be the next investigations’ Commander. Looks like more unsolved homicides in the future. There is no reason to work hard to get promoted you just needed to have stolen Elder’s IA file or “get under his desk”. The only word that should still be on EPSO badges is Loyalty. Someone needs to remove honesty and unity because that is no longer required.
It appears Corrupt Sheriff Elder is following through on his sexist statement made prior to taking office. He will not have any Females on his command staff. Never have; never will! Does Elder believe women are just for sex and you eliminate them if they become inconvenient?
“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light”

Is everyone leaving the sinking ship?
You know you’re in trouble when your attorney is sued for unethical behavior and within two weeks quits on you. Corrupt Sheriff Elder announced that EPSO legal advisor Lisa Kirkman, who was overheard months ago saying; “I didn’t sign up for this Shit!”, is going back to county and they are going to send over another attorney to replace her. Rumor is she could not take all the corruption by Elder and his leadership. Will the new guy put up with all the corruption? Seems like everyone is leaving. Is Elder trying to clean house? It won’t work because too many people know where the bodies (or IA file) is buried.

Corrupt Sheriff Elder has Bankrupted the Sheriff’s Office; wants Millions more of your money for his Cronies
If you are filling out your ballot make sure you vote NO on 1A. Take away “Bankrupted” Bill’s money. It’s one way to stop him from wasting more taxpayer money. It will force him to spend our money wisely. Don’t reward bad behavior. Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder has stolen millions from 1A.
1A was established to put more “boots on the ground”. Basically put more deputies on the street and in the jail. Did you know there are less Sworn Deputies on Patrol now than when Elder took office? You are paying an extra 20 million a year in taxes and there are less Deputies now than when Corrupt Sheriff Elder took office. WHERE IS THE MONEY GOING! And he wants you to keep paying for less safety? This makes no sense. Pay more for less. Elder is stealing our money and he is asking us to keep paying him. It’s like a SCAM that keeps taking your money. Corrupt Sheriff Elder is scamming our community out of 20 million a year and is giving the money to his cronies. We are not getting more deputies for the money; don’t be fooled.
Stop the scam; VOTE NO ON 1A

Carey does not want the job anymore?
Corrupt Sheriff Elder is going out of his way to make sure everyone in the office is told Pete Carey will NOT be the next undersheriff. All the Lieutenants were told to brief their people. Is Elder doing this because of us? Didn’t he say he does not visit our website? IP traces would say otherwise. We get many hits from “El Paso County” every work day. If what Corrupt Sheriff Elder is saying is true it means we could still have undersheriff Billy Huffor in a few months. So, it could be worse. Is Elder having to make changes because of us?
Ask yourself this question; “when was the last time you were briefed someone would not be joining the Sheriff’s Office?” Is Corrupt Sheriff Elder chasing his tail trying to stop all the leaks? Is Elder losing control? We know he is losing his mind. According to a source, Elder is livid over all the leaks. It appears the office leadership is falling apart. Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they aren’t out to get you. Everyone is tired of the corruption and they just want Elder to leave. It appears people cannot get out the door fast enough.
STOP THE CORRUPTION
Breister is OUT!
It appears Corrupt Sheriff Elder wants to get all the information out before we announce it. He just announced Undersheriff Breister is out on January 31, 2019. Guess what; that’s not the legendary information we know. Keep trying… you’re getting warm.
We just got word they announced Gillespie’s promotion this morning. Remember you got the scoop here first! We know what is happening on the 5th floor shortly after Corrupt Elder does. Corruption does not like the light. We know more secrets, but all in good time.
Our latest news will be, wait for it …….. legendary!
More evidence of the unethical malicious prosecution of John San Agustin. It appears only the CS Independent is interested in reporting corruption within both the DA’s office and the Sheriff’s Office. The Gazette (Lance Benzel) should have to file in kind contributions to Corrupt Elder’s re-election campaign for his articles. His stories are so bias they read like campaign brochures. He has no commitment to fair and balanced reporting. We have not lost faith in Kaitlin Durbin. She appears to want to be fair and is willing to write the truth. You can tell from Lance’s articles he still cannot get over the results of the Maketa trials. It’s getting harder and harder for him to write articles that make Corrupt Sheriff Elder look competent. Based on his recent articles he should start writing fiction. We all know Elder is the county Jester.
It’s going to be hard to wait a couple years for the San Agustin lawsuit to make it to trial. So much corruption will be exposed! We are confident when it’s all said and done, Corrupt Sheriff Elder will be exposed for the person he is; an unethical politician with no integrity. BTW – we hear more lawsuits are coming. You can bet the local civil attorneys love Elder. There are so many lawsuits they are having to bring in lawyers from Denver.
Let the Sheriff Elder lawsuit games begin! May the odds be ever in your favor!
Will Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s second term go just like Nixon’s?
Sometimes the truth is inconvenient

Gillespie to Commander?
According to our sources, Lt. Cy Gillespie is telling everyone Corrupt Sheriff Elder told him he is going to be promoted to Commander in the near future. He also told him not to tell anyone; Whoops! Obviously Elder is not promoting him because he can keep a secret. We will see if the rumor is true. We were told by sources Cy has been one of the worst supervisor in investigation’s history and is partly responsible for the high “unsolved” homicide rate. We were also told Gillespie himself stated he had no experience in investigations and questioned his transfer.
Would it make perfect since for Elder to promote him? No experience, hated by all, terrible supervisor; the perfect choice for Elder? If he started sexually harassing women he might go directly to chief; maybe undersheriff.
We have another huge bombshell we are verifying. Stay tuned…

Is Elder selling positions for campaign contributions? When is Breister finally going to leave? Has the reputation of the Huffors changed? This and more rumors in our most recent article concerning Sheriff Elder’s Corruption. Read the article.

More evidence of Corruption and unethical malicious prosecution exposed in latest lawsuit against Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder
Wednesday, October 17, 2018
John San Agustin Sues Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder, DA Dan May and others for 10 Million Dollars
You have to read the lawsuit that was filed this week in federal court by John San Agustin’s attorneys. Complaint. We will have more soon…
We hear Corrupt Sheriff Elder is thinking about allowing all Sr. Deputies assigned to the jail go directly to Patrol without having to test. We find this interesting and will look into it. More later…

Everyone be quiet until after the election
We’ve heard Corrupt Sheriff Elder wants everyone quiet until after the election. No more corruption and no one does anything stupid for a while. Elder has not been showing up to meetings and events. He is hiding under his desk. Elder knows every time he opens his mouth he gets caught in a lie or says something stupid. Elder is scared to death the 1A renewal will not pass. He needs that money to keep paying his cronies. Understand this, 42% of Republicans did not want to see Elder re-elected. There is a chance 1A will not be renewed because the word is out on Elder’s corruption. We obviously encourage everyone to vote NO on 1A because this is one way to curb Elder’s corruption and wasteful spending of taxpayer money.
We also hear Corrupt Sheriff Elder does not want to announce any promotions until after the election as well. He knows promoting Huffor will cause more anger and NO votes for 1A.
Wouldn’t it be a lot easier to just be honest?

Only Two Names Left
Rodney Gehrett announced his retirement at the end of the month. Only two names are left on the list we published earlier this year. Almost everyone on Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s original command staff has left. Rumor has it Brad Shannon will be next and Joe Breister will be last. Is Chief Carey ready to join the corruption club?
Saturday, October 6, 2018
I got next!
Confirmed LIAR Chuck Kull wants to be the next sheriff
The Colorado Springs Independent dropped a bombshell late yesterday afternoon. It appears Lt. Chuck Kull, best known for his many Internal Affairs investigations and conveniently forgetting some of them under oath during Maketa’s original trial, wants to be the next sheriff. Read emails.
This makes total sense. Sheriff Elder is corrupt, a confirmed liar, committed perjury under oath, lived with a women he was not married to, had financial problems, is arrogant, only cares about money, treats staff inappropriately, and is hated by most employees.
Is Lt. Kull the PERFECT replacement for Corrupt Sheriff Elder?
Corruption leads to more corruption
Is this the beginning of all the rats attacking each other to get in line to replace Corrupt Sheriff Elder? Based on the email from Elder to Kull is sounds like Elder might not finish his second term. Do the Sharks smell blood in the water?
It’s time to clean up EPSO
It appears we might need to start doing some reporting on those interested in being the next sheriff. If someone expresses an interest in being the next sheriff should we provide the public with all the relevant information on their character and work history?
Is there any Light at the end of the tunnel? Hang in there, more evidence of corruption is coming…
“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light”
Wednesday, October 3, 2018
We hear there was some yelling and screaming on the 5th floor yesterday around lunch time. Is someone a little upset? Not getting their beauty sleep? Did someone pee in Elder’s Wheaties? Too many leaks in the office?
We were contacted by multiple employees who told us things are falling apart and Elder looks really bad. Is the stress of being exposed as a liar and corrupt getting to him? Is he drinking more?
Is Corrupt Sheriff Elder having a Bad year?
Elder can not enforce discipline because everyone knows all about his corruption. The list of cronies who could expose him is huge and Elder has no choice but to let them do whatever they want.

The madhouse at the jailhouse continues
Last week Sgt. Wright harassed a Deputy working in the jail to the point he turned in his stuff and walked out. This poor deputy who was frustrated over the required weekly unpaid overtime was expressing his concerns to Sgt. Wright who started yelling at him and told him if he didn’t like it to just leave; which he did. Right in the middle of the shift, in the middle of a ward in front of inmates and on video. As bad as things are, Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s thugs should probably not harass deputies. There are not that many left. Elder admitted during a recent interview his supervisors are not trained. This would be a good example of that. Any chance Corrupt Sheriff Elder will review the video or talk with the Sgt? Probably not. If Elder had any integrity he would contact the deputy who quit and talk with him. Find out what really happened. We would encourage the deputy who quit to send us an email with the whole story. We will forward it to the media.
Let’s see what Elder does. He should beg the deputy to take his job back and demote the Sgt. Don’t hold your breath. We hear from multiple sources Sgt. Wright is a terrible supervisor which means he is command staff material. Just another corrupt supervisor working for Corrupt Sheriff Elder. Does anyone actually care about the employees?
We pray for our friends who have to work in such a bad environment. God protect you; because Elder won’t.
Sunday, September 30, 3018
The Gazette published an article today that exposes Corrupt Sheriff Elder; Again. Elder continues to not admit what really happened concerning the Micah Flick Shooting. Almost every news media has reported Sheriff Elder did not tell the truth about the shooting. Even his buddy District Attorney Dan May threw him under the bus and admitted Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s statement that law enforcement properly identified themselves prior to the shooting was not true. The only person who has not admitted that Elder lied, is Corrupt Sheriff Elder.
Corrupt Sheriff Elder; LIE, DENY, HIDE and let it RIDE
There is so much corruption. Just review all the articles we have published in the last 20 months. Over 60 articles exposing Sheriff Elder’s corruption. This does not even include all the BLOGs and “Latest News” updates. There is more coming. We have been working on some stories for over a year. We will continue to expose Elder.

Elder wants to give Hatch a big send off
Today at 3:00 pm at Centennial Hall there will be a retirement ceremony for Commander Richard Hatch. Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder wants to give his old friend a big send off so they moved the ceremony from the usual location at the 3rd floor conference room to Centennial Hall.
The problem is most everyone hates Hatch and thinks he is worthless. All he did for three years is smoke and get paid. Most everyone in investigations talks about how he is completely worthless. Corrupt Sheriff Elder gave Hatch a job he was not qualified for or deserved. Elder paid him over $100k a year for 3 1/2 years to smoke cigarettes in the parking structure and sit in his office. The padding of Hatch’s retirement will cost taxpayers thousands of dollars. The only thing to show for Hatch’s time as commander of investigations is the highest unsolved homicide rate ever recorded at EPSO. Who cares that Hatch was incompetent; he’s Elder’s buddy. Just another example of his corruption.
Corrupt Sheriff Elder found out no one was planning to go to Hatch’s retirement ceremony this afternoon so he has ordered everyone to be there. We just got word from multiple employees that they have been told they WILL be there. Elder wants a big show for his old buddy.
Corrupt Elder and worthless Hatch understand this; NO ONE WANTS TO BE THERE! Everyone despises both of you! They are there because Elder ordered them to be there
Rumor: Scott Deno will be the next commander. We were given three possible names; Deno is at the top.
Corrupt Sheriff Elder; Keep giving me my money or gangs will take over!
Corrupt Sheriff Elder was the only person to submit a “Pro” statement for the 1A tax initiative. He needs the money to keep his cronies paid. Elder has stolen and misappropriated 1A funds since taking office. We have written multiple articles showing corrupt Elder is stealing the money and using it for items not listed on the ballot initiative. The 1A tax initiative was intended to put more “boots on the ground” to fight crime and protect our community. Corrupt Elder has taken that money and spent it on other items to include expensive computer software which was not needed. Over 10 million dollars of wasteful spending. He has also used the money to create more supervisor positions. Simply; Corrupt Sheriff Elder has not used the money to help protect the community. There are less Deputies on Patrol now than when Elder took office. The Jail is at minimal staffing. It has gotten so bad Elder has had to put non POST certified staff in the jail running wards. This has never happened prior to Elder taking office.
Things have progressively gone down hill since Corrupt Sheriff Elder took over. Now he has the audacity to ask for more money so he can continue to pay his cronies and waste our taxpayer money on items not approved by the ballot measure?
The last thing you would do is give more money to a child who has shown they can not be trusted. As we all know Corrupt Sheriff Elder filled for bankruptcy, has been married multiple times, and continually lies to the public. Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder can not be trusted with our money. It’s time to hold him accountable for all his corruption.
Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s Quote:
“With the lowest property tax rates of any of Colorado’s large counties, the loss of sales tax revenues dedicated to public safety would necessitate deep cuts in all operations of the Sheriff’s office making us an easier target for gangs and other organized criminal activity.”
The only gang taking over the county with organized crime is Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder, District Attorney Dan May and the county commissioners.

The Colorado Springs Independent does it again!
Pam Zubeck Totally exposes Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s incompetence and lack of leadership
The Colorado Springs Independent published an article yesterday that lays out the issues with the Flick shooting. Yet, Corrupt Elder still will not admit mistakes were made and refuses to take responsibility. We have received information that Deputies were told to not draw their weapons unless they absolutely felt they needed to; and if they did they were required by policy to write a memo (every time). This policy created by Corrupt Sheriff Elder and his direction for deputies to keep their guns holstered lead to the death of Micah Flick.
Elder’s incompetence is putting Deputies lives at risk
Colonel Angley publicly expresses his thoughts about renewing 1A tax initiative
We were contacted about a letter posted on Mike Angley’s website. We checked it out and thought it expressed a lot of the same concerns we have so we are posting it on our website for everyone to read. It is well written and addresses many of the issues why we should not continue (or renew) the 1A tax. Read Mike Angley’s LETTER. It appears Colonel Angley submitted this letter to be included in the public comments section of the ballot issue notice for 1A. We encourage others to submit letter by tomorrow. (scroll down to next article).
Corrupt Sheriff Elder and the county Commissioners are not spending the money according to the wording of the ballot initiative. They are steeling the money and spending it any way they want to.
1A was suppose to put more “boots on the ground” and it did during Sheriff Maketa’s term. However, once Corrupt Sheriff Elder took over he started diverting the funds to pay for his cronies. There are still less Deputies on patrol than back in 2014 when Elder took over. Corrupt Sheriff Elder is incompetent and a complete liar.
The word about our corrupt sheriff and county commissioners is getting out.

Corrupt Sheriff Elder wants to continue stealing taxpayer’s money so he can keep paying his cronies
Dirtyelder.com has written multiple articles about how Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder is illegally spending taxpayer funds from the 1A tax initiative which was passed years ago. Elder is not using the money for what it was intended. 1A was passed by the taxpayers to put more Deputies on the street and in the jail. Elder has less deputies working in patrol than when he was elected. We showed how he is stealing the 1A funds to pay his cronies. Corrupt Sheriff Elder is not spending 1A funds on more “boots on the ground” which was the intent of the initiative. He has wasted millions on expensive computer software (over 10 million dollars) and for the salaries of his cronies. Corrupt Sheriff Elder has hired more friends and created more supervisor positions than any other sheriff. He spends over 3 million dollars a year on salaries for his cronies while there are less deputies working in patrol than when he took office. There is a critical shortage of deputies and he continues to not address the issue.
There are less Deputies working in patrol now than back in 2014? WHERE DID ALL THE 1A MONEY GO?
This brings up a new issue; why would we as taxpayers continue to let Corrupt Sheriff Elder steal our money? The corrupt County Commissioners want to continue to RAPE the citizens of El Paso County and decided to put a ballot measure on this November’s ballot to renew the 1A tax initiate. Why would we allow this? It’s time to hold Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder accountable for his wasteful spending.
Corrupt Sheriff Elder has shown he can not be responsible with taxpayer money. If we continue to give him 1A funds he will not provide more deputies for our protection. He has show he will steal the funds and spend it how he wants. It’s time to stop the corruption the one way still available to us; cut off the checkbook.
We have until Friday to provide feedback why 1A should not be renewed. Here is the letter sent by the county.
We encourage El Paso County Taxpayers who do not wish to see the 1A tax initiative renewed to submit statements by this Friday. It could be as simple as the following:
“The county is not spending 1A funds according to the original ballot measure, we should not continue the tax initiative”
“1A was approved by the voters to provide more Deputies in patrol and in the jail. This is not happening, 1A should not be continued”
“Sheriff Elder and the county have not shown that the 1A funds are being used appropriately; it should not continue”
“1A funds are not being used appropriately by Sheriff Elder or the county commissioners; it should not be renewed.”
“El Paso County has not been transparent how the 1A funds have been spent; it should not be renewed”
“Sheriff Elder has wasted taxpayer money and should not be allowed to continue; 1A should not be renewed”
It is important that multiple “con” statements are submitted by Friday. Here is your chance to be heard and stop the corruption at the Sheriff’s office.

Another member of corrupt Sheriff Elder’s command staff retires
We were informed Commander Richard Hatch turned in his retirement papers last week. This is not a surprise as we were told Corrupt Sheriff Elder gave him his job as a reward for keeping his mouth shut about all the corruption (past and present). Prior to his first departure Hatch reached the rank of Sergeant, but was demoted for inappropriate behavior. Prior to returning to EPSO when Corrupt Sheriff Elder was elected he was nothing more than an investigator with DOC. So why would Corrupt Sheriff Elder make a DOC investigator the commander of investigations at EPSO? When you are corrupt you need your cronies around you. Could it be he was paying Hatch off because he was with Elder when he found his girlfriend murdered years ago? Does Hatch know all of Elder’s secrets? We still don’t know why Elder and Hatch did not contact CSPD for hours after they found her body. But we do know CSPD stated in their report that the crime scene looked staged. What did Elder and Hatch do during all that time?
We have received conflicting information and rumors concerning Commander Hatch. Some say he told Elder to stop with all the corruption and not to pursue false charges against Sheriff Maketa. Rumor has it he hates the Huffors, Cliff Porter, and most of the command staff. We hear he is retiring because he has maximized his retirement and is tired of all the corruption. Does he want out prior to all the facts about Corrupt Sheriff Elder coming out? He is not alone. We heard Chief Carey is having second thoughts about becoming undersheriff during Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s second term. It’s not much fun to be on a corrupt command staff.
Here is a fact that is not debatable. Hatch was incompetent as the commander of Investigations. There has been more unsolved homicides under his watch than the previous 20-30 years. The majority of the experienced Detectives retired or quit. It all starts with leadership and Elder has none. Most of the supervisors in investigations have little to no experience conducting major investigations. Some supervisors had zero experience when they joined investigations. One supervisor, who had no previous experience was in charge of the operation that lead to the death of Detective Micah Flick. Was he disciplined? Nope; they did not even investigate or conduct a debrief and reenactment to learn from the event. The last thing Corrupt Sheriff Elder wanted to do was document what really happened that day. Corrupt Sheriff Elder does not care about the lives of the employees; just the size of his bank account. Corrupt Sheriff Elder is putting Deputies lives at risk everyday.
One of the major reasons EPSO is having such a leadership problem is because Corrupt Sheriff Elder is promoting based on Cronyism; not performance, experience, and skills. He is promoting all his buddies, not those who have worked hard and have shown true leadership. He even admitted in a recent interview that his supervisors are not trained or experienced.
We predict Corrupt Sheriff Elder will soon announce the promotion of Billy Huffor. Someone with no LE experience and no leadership skills. The most hated person at EPSO and who has failed at every position he has held. But he is best friends with Elder. Wouldn’t it be ironic if Corrupt Elder put Huffor in charge of Investigations?
Who will die next so Corrupt Sheriff Elder can continue to play sheriff?
Corruption is Deadly
Wednesday, September 12, 2018
Nothing to see here; move along!
Both CSPD and EPSO as predicted announce they will not provide anymore information concerning the shooting that took the life of Deputy Flick. They do not want to talk about how the shooting was caused by their poor leadership and training. We predicted they would attempt to get the media to “move on” and stop reporting on this tragic event. There needs to be a complete “public” investigation not private internal reviews. Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder is responsible for the death of Micah Flick. We wonder how he can sleep nights. Does all the money he has stolen from the taxpayers help him with his guilt? Why worry about integrity when you have money? Why care that the majority of the employees hate you when you can take expensive vacations? Corrupt Sheriff Elder has abandon all his campaign promises and has shown his true colors.
Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder is not a man of integrity; he is a man of lust and desires

Flick Autopsy Released
In a complete reversal Micah Flick’s autopsy is going to be released. CS Independent was out in front again with their story. So, why did they change their minds and decide to release it? It’s simple, there was no more reason to hide it. CSPD released their 900 page report which spilled the beans. They proved sealing the autopsy had nothing to do with Flick’s family. After it got out and it seemed like the media did not care they decide to just release everything and get it over with. They decide to just “rip” the band-aid off. Someone actually gave them good advice. There was no reason to slowly release information that kept causing the media to do a new story. Just dump it all out there and get it over with. Now they can start saying it’s time to move on and let the family heal. “Nothing to see here, move along”… Problem is there is plenty to see. It is clear Corrupt Sheriff Elder lied during his press conference when he said they properly identified themselves and Badges and Emblems were visible prior to the shooting. That was a complete LIE! Plus, there should be an investigation into the tactics used and the policies that effected their decision to not have guns drawn. It has been confirmed they did not have a tactical plan for making the arrest and never trained together. These are all issues with leadership. The on scene supervisor was not disciplined for his obvious incompetence. Someone needs to ask EPSO where in their training do they teach a tactical “Bear Hug” as a take down method? Also, where in POST training does it teach making a felony contact with your guns in your holsters and not announcing yourself until you make physical contact with the suspect?
Multiple lives were lost that day due to obvious failures of leadership. Does Corrupt Sheriff Elder care? NOPE; he did not even initiate an investigation and they still have not had a debrief with those involved. He’s too busy covering up his own incompetence. He’s more worried he might lose the 1A funds and won’t be able to keep all his cronies in the money.

Corrupt Sheriff Elder shown to be a LIAR, AGAIN!
CSPD released their report on the Flick Shooting. KOAA posted the report. In this report it shows Corrupt Sheriff Elder lied at his press conference when he said everyone was wearing vests showing they were law enforcement (LE). Multiple times in the report it references they did not have guns drawn, badges or LE emblems out, or properly identified themselves prior to Deputies Flick and Stone “Jumping” Zetina. According to the report most, if not all, officers had their “vests” covered and did not have badges or emblems visible. There was a great deal of confusion around when they finally identified themselves as LE. It appears it was when they grabbed Zetina.
Back on August 23, 2018 we reported District Attorney Dan May threw Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder under the bus when he confirmed LE officers did not announce themselves as cops or have any badges or emblems out prior to jumping Zetina. This means Zetina was justified in defending himself? The problem is Zetina started shooting at everyone else. This is what gave DA May the ability to say the officers were justified in returning fire. Someone needs to ask Dan May a simple question; “Based on the fact they did not properly identify themselves as LE was Zetina justified in defending himself during the initial contact by Flick and Stone?”
So where is EPSO’s report? They have not even had a debrief yet. So incompetent. Corrupt Sheriff Elder is inept and way over his head. He has no idea how to run anything let alone a major LE agency. He looks like the county “fool”; again.
Having reviewed the local media’s coverage of the report it appears the CS Independent is still the team to beat. They did a great article talking about the facts of the event. The others glossed over the facts and reported it like “soft” news.

It’s official, Corrupt Sheriff Elder is being Sued by EVERYONE!
Elder uses Flick’s Death as excuse why he has not fixed issues at EPSO?
The Colorado Springs Gazette wrote a pretty good story about Corrupt Sheriff Elder not releasing the KRW report. (PDF Version). It appears Corrupt Elder uses Micah Flick’s death as an excuse why nothing has been done to fix all the issues at EPSO (El Paso County Sheriff’s Office). Here is the actual quote from the article.
“The sheriff has declined to release the draft of the follow-up assessment to The Gazette, telling a reporter in June that it is still a “working document.” He told The Gazette that the report, which was initially slated for completion months earlier, had become less of a priority with other goings-on at the agency, including the death of Deputy Micah Flick.”
So according to Corrupt Sheriff Elder; he has been spending so much time covering up the truth about Flick’s death he has not had time to do anything else?
Corrupt Sheriff Elder goes on to list more excuses why he has done nothing. Like other interviews, Elder sounds incompetent and way over his head. Reading the comments to the article it appears Elder is fooling no-one. Is the truth about Corrupt Sheriff Elder getting out?
The best advise we could give Elder is to keep his mouth shout and let someone with experience and communication skills do the talking. That would not be Jackie Kirby.
The Independent way out in front reporting Sheriff Elder’s Corruption
We missed an article posted earlier this week on CS Independent’s website. It talks about all the lawsuits against Corrupt Sheriff Elder. We know of more cases that are already filed or will be filed this fall. The county commissioners have handed out Millions of taxpayer money since Elder took office. It appears they will hand out millions more before they are done.
Yet another Article about Flick Shooting
The Colorado Springs Independent did another story about the Micah Flick Shooting. Pam Zubeck is out in front reporting all the facts that Corrupt Sheriff Elder is trying to keep secret. Any expert in Law Enforcement tactics knows the tactics used when attempting to arrest Zetina was not appropriate. Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s policies and incompetence is the reason Micah Flick is dead. He needs to take full responsibility. They have not even conducted a debrief or started a critical incident review. There has been no review or any disciplinary action taken. What about the supervisor on scene during the shooting? He was never held accountable for his actions. No training, no planning and no leadership; A deadly combination.
Corrupt Sheriff Elder is still trying to keep the KRW report secret until after the election?
Corrupt Sheriff Elder is being sued by everyone.
Corrupt Sheriff Elder still has not admitted Deputy Juhl was shot by friendly fire from Deputy C.W. How long will he keep that from the public?
Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder is the biggest Liar in El Paso County. He is also the most incompetent Sheriff we have ever had.

Undeniable Proof Corrupt Sheriff Elder is Completely INCOMPETENT
The Colorado Springs Gazette published a great article yesterday about the coverup of the Micah Flick shooting. (PDF Version). In this article EPSO PIO Jackie Kirby confirms Corrupt Sheriff Elder and his leadership team is completely incompetent and should not be running a law enforcement agency. Kirby was asked if EPSO had conducted a “critical incident review” concerning the shooting. Her response was; “The sheriff’s office also “normally” conducts the same in-house review, spokeswoman Jacqueline Kirby said. The process has not yet started…”
“The process has not yet started…” PIO Kirby
This is another WTF moment. Kirby confirmed that after 6 months EPSO has not conducted ANY review of the shooting that wounded multiple officers and killed one Detective. This is unbelievable! We have confirmed with multiple Deputies involved in the shooting they have not had a debrief and were told by supervisors not to talk with each other about the shooting. Corrupt Sheriff Elder is so concerned about covering up his deadly mistake he does not want deputies to discuss what happened. Anyone who has been in law enforcement knows the importance of having a debrief with those involved within a few days. IT’S BEEN 6 MONTHS!
Not having a debrief or even an internal review shows Elder is completely corrupt and incompetent. He should not be sheriff. He should resign immediately. How many more deputies will die because of his ineptness?
Elder should be the county Jester instead of Sheriff. At least when he screws that up it won’t cost people their lives.

Both Dan May and Corrupt Sheriff Elder wash their hands of the Flick Shooting
The CS Independent did an article about the Flick Shooting. Everyone is washing their hands of the innocent bystander whose life was ruined because of improper tactics used by EPSO and CSPD. Corrupt Sheriff Elder is responsible for policies and lack of training that created the situation where Deputies lives were put at risk and Micah Flick was killed. Will the truth ever come out?
Does everyone want to sue Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder?
The following is a excerpt from the latest Thrifty Nickel. It appears someone is looking for an attorney to file a lawsuit against Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder. We are not surprised. Based on how Elder has mismanaged the office for the past three years there should be a long list. Plus, the way the county commissioners hand out money to protect their political buddy Elder everyone should try to get a piece of the action. Seeing the person who placed the add wanted to get the word out we did not redact his name or phone number. We know there are many local attorneys who are avid readers of Dirtyelder.com so maybe one would be interested in contacting him.
Get a closer look
WE CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!
Sheriff Elder; “the most Corrupt and Hated Sheriff EVER!”
Tuesday, August 28, 2018
How many lawsuits can be filed against one Corrupt Sheriff?
There is an article in the Gazette about yet another potential lawsuit against Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder. (PDF) Corrupt Elder is already in the midst of many lawsuits due to his unethical and illegal behavior. Obviously a good indicator of corruption is the number of lawsuits against that person and his office. Corrupt Elder is setting records that could stand for decades. We know there are more lawsuits coming. Standby, more corruption is on the way…
Corrupt Sheriff Elder, keeping his incompetence Secret
When Corrupt Sheriff Elder was running for office he made all kinds of promises. He would have the most transparent office, audit the budget, and would have an independent group review the office and make recommendations on how to do things better. After 3 years let’s review; Elder wasted all the money, there is no transparency, and Elder will not even release the report from KRW which was paid for by taxpayer money. Corrupt Elder has completely messed up the entire Sheriff’s office and he is now in coverup mode. Everything he does goes wrong. Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s incompetence even cost Micah Flick his life.
Read the report from KKTV. Did Elder really say that? Here is the quote from Elder.
“We have added so many new personnel to our leadership cadre that have not been trained, that have not gone through leadership training, leadership models, that they don’t have the right answer. [The firm] needs to interview them to find out who’s got this who’s got that. What works, what doesn’t work.”
All you can say is WTF? Corrupt Elder sounds like a complete Idiot and admits his leadership team is not qualified. Here is a thought; promote qualified people or train them first. Elder needs to go back to his office and play with his toys. Every time he opens his mouth he says something stupid. When you have incompetence running a McDonalds you get a bad burger; when you have incompetence running a law enforcement agency you get dead cops. How many more Deputies will die so Elder can play Sheriff?
Corrupt Elder admits he does not want to release the report until after the election? How corrupt is that?
At this point, Elder can not stop the bleeding. There is so much corruption he can’t stop it. You would think Elder would tell his cronies to stop doing stupid stuff, but they can’t help themselves. The ship is sinking and while Elder is trying to fix the holes his buddies are taking their money and heading for the life boats.
If ignorance was painful, Elder would be screaming!
Corrupt Sheriff Elder is still trying to prevent the public from seeing the autopsy reports from the Flick Shooting. It appears Dr. Bux is not so motivated anymore. There is another great story in the CS Independent.

When you’re Sheriff; Stupid is Expensive!

King leaves in total shame
After what happened last week at Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s federal trial we wondered how long it would take for Commander King to retire. It appears the answer is; not long. Commander King will retire at the end of the month. We are still gathering all the information that came out publicly. King definitely perjured himself; Elder was called a liar. We will publish everything when we get our hands on it.

The number of “hits” on DirtyElder.com Doubles in one day!
We average so many hits a day; we were contacted by an advertisement company wanting to pay us to allow them to advertise on our website. WTF! Don’t worry we are staying pure to our mission.
Let’s cause an Eruption about Elder’s Corruption!
Federal Lawsuit against Corrupt Sheriff Elder goes South
As you may have noticed in the media; the Jury in the Federal lawsuit did not rule for Sgt. Huntz; however, there is a wealth of information that was made public concerning Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder and Commander King. We are working on an article that will give you the scoop on the trial and everything that was made public. Hint: not good for Elder or King.
The coverup of the Micah Flick shooting continues
There is a good article in the CS independent about the innocent bystander who was shot during the shootout between law enforcement and Manuel Zetina. We will have an article on this in the next few days. We are confident corrupt District Attorney Dan May will rule it a good shooting no matter the facts or what really happened. They need to release all the reports and allow the Deputies to be interviewed by the media. It will take another lawsuit to get to the truth. What happened to transparency?
Thursday, August 16, 2018
The ball is rolling; the community is starting to understand how corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder and District Attorney Dan May are. More is coming.
Wednesday, August 15, 2018
Most of the local media covered the small protest by friends and family of the innocent victim of Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s policies that put not only Deputies lives at risk but innocent bystanders who happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. The truth is getting out. It’s pretty clear at this point that Elder’s inexperience and inability to lead has cost the taxpayers millions and Micah Flick his life.
The federal trial against Elder continues. We have decided not to report the details until it is over. We do not want to jeopardize the outcome. We plan to give details this weekend or possibly early next week. We know Elder retaliated against Sgt. Huntz; we hope the jurors see the truth and hold corrupt Sheriff Elder accountable.
There was a small demonstration this morning against Corrupt Sheriff Elder and his attempts to keep information secret concerning the officer involved shooting that left two dead, one paralyzed, and others wounded. Will this small group of concerned citizens turn into a large movement that demands transparency from the Sheriff who promised it years ago?
Tuesday, August 14, 2018
“Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light”
Is the truth about Micah Flick’s death finally going to come to light?
There is a protest tomorrow against Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s attempts to keep the details of the shooting last February that took the life of two individuals to include Detective Micah Flick a secret. (PDF Version) We encourage everyone to go and demand the truth. Elder is doing what ever he can to keep the details secret because he knows there will be some very large lawsuits coming his way. What a surprise, more lawsuits due to Elder being inept and corrupt.
Millions of taxpayer money wasted by Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder
The local media appears to be interested in Elder’s corruption now. KKTV posted an article about the 190k payout. If our math is right; the county has given out over a million dollars in payouts since Corrupt Sheriff Elder took office. How much more could be added to the payouts in the next few weeks?
Corrupt Elder’s Black Monday
It appears Corrupt Sheriff Elder had a real bad Monday. His Trial started. (PDF Version). It was also reported by KRDO that the payoff we originally reported to be 60k is going to be over triple that amount. According to KRDO they will pay out $190,000 of taxpayer money. Now we find out there is going to be a protest concerning the lack of information that is being released by EPSO concerning the shooting death of Micah Flick. The truth is getting out and Corrupt Sheriff Elder can’t stop it. The details of Micah Flick’s death were discussed on AM 710 KNUS last Friday.
It appears KRDO has decided to get in the game and start reporting on Sheriff Elder’s corruption.
Monday, August 13, 2018
The trial against Corrupt Sheriff Elder for retaliation started today. Not much to report so far. Hopefully things will heat up in the next few days when the Elder Mafia testifies. We should have most of the details by the end of the week. We do not want to report too much while the trial is going on because we suspect Elder and his legal team are monitoring our website.
Sunday, August 12, 2018
The line just keeps growing
Yet another retaliation complaint against corrupt Sheriff Elder. Will it ever end? Elder forces a Deputy to quit because he is black? (PDF Version) Is this evidence that Corrupt Sheriff Elder is also a Racist? If you read the article it suggests the supervisor who filed the complaint against the deputy was Undersheriff Breister. How many times does an Undersheriff file an IA complaint about a Deputy working a ward in the jail? It does seem Elder treated him differently and wanted him gone. With the recent revelation of the “fight club” it will make this complaint interesting.
Maybe Corrupt Sheriff Elder should rent an apartment near the federal courthouse in Denver? It looks like he might be up there most of the time. Or maybe the county commissioners should install a drive thru window to hand out all the settlement money?
Federal Trial against corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder starts tomorrow
Monday morning is getting closer and closer. No more hiding under the desk when the media asks questions. Corrupt Sheriff Elder is going to take the stand under oath and answer for his inappropriate and unethical behavior. Then a bunch of his cronies will do the same. Hopefully the truth will finally get out and Elder will be exposed as a liar, inept, and corrupt. His entire administration could be exposed. This lawsuit stands for the many employees who have been treated inappropriately and those who have been wrongfully terminated. When you have almost 40% of your employees quit or retire in 3 1/2 years you know there is a major problem with “treatment of staff”. The overwhelming majority of employees hate Sheriff Bill Elder and his leadership team. Why do you think Bill Elder refuses to release the latest KRW report that was completed months ago? Does it expose all the problems with EPSO?
Bill Elder; the most hated and corrupt sheriff ever!

Cash Settlements from El Paso County just keep going and going…
It appears El Paso County will be paying out another $60,000 this week because of Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s policy not to release inmates if they can’t pay the “release fee” (PDF version). Elder makes you pay to get out of jail; nice. So, how many release fees does it take to add up to 60K? Answer: just over a thousand. Real smart. No one ever said Elder and his cronies were good at math, look how he wasted the 1A funds. Since Elder took office the county has paid over 1 million dollars in settlements. How much more will be added to this amount next week? It could double.
How much will Bill Elder’s incompetence cost the taxpayers?
We have heard rumors the attorneys for the county have been working with Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder and his cronies on their testimony for next week’s trial. They are not happy. Elder and others have been begging them to settle so they will not have to testify under oath next week. Rumor has it the county does not want to settle because their insurance premiums might go up with another large settlement. We can’t wait to see them testify. One rumor is that Elder has been acting irrational and was almost in tears this week begging them to settle.
Has the county commissioners finally had enough of Corrupt Bill Elder? Will Corrupt Bill Elder finally have to answer for his inappropriate and unethical behavior? Most employees are hoping Elder’s corruption will finally be exposed. Get the background on the case against Sheriff Elder
The hours are counting down until the trial on Monday…

Former Aurora Officer guilty of Official Misconduct; Why wasn’t Jackie Kirby charged with the same crime?
Jackie Kirby was investigated for doing the very same thing as a former Aurora Officer who was charge and convicted of Official Misconduct. Why didn’t District Attorney Dan May charge Jackie Kirby? Can Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder and his Cronies do whatever they want? Do the laws of Colorado not apply to them? Read Article about Aurora Officer and then read our article about Kirby.
The more Corrupt Sheriff Elder and his cronies intimidate and threaten employees the more evidence they give the attorneys for lawsuits and the more taxpayer money that will go out in settlements.
Wouldn’t it just be easier (and cheaper) to do the right thing and treat people appropriately and with respect?
Federal trial against Corrupt Sheriff Elder starts Monday
Monday morning Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder will take a seat at the defense table. He will be there all week as multiple individuals testify about how he retaliated against an employee who is also a military veteran. There should be a wealth of information showing that Bill Elder is both inept and corrupt. This should be the trial of the year! Everyone who has the week free should attend and watch for themselves. We can not wait to see Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder take the stand. He did such a bad job testifying at the Maketa trial. He also committed perjury when he testified that he knew nothing about his missing IA file. Sgt. Ray Gerhart testified that Elder told him about the missing IA file back in December of 2013 during a phone call and told him not to worry about it. Will Elder lie on the stand next week? Dan May won’t be able to protect him. Want more background on the case?
Is Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder ready to take the witness stand and face a modern day Perry Mason?
The trial starts next Monday, August 13th, 2018. It will be held in Courtroom 202 in the Byron Rogers building located at 19th and Stout Street. Will DirtyElder.com be holding tailgate parties outside the courthouse. Look for our signs.

The word on Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder and Dan May is getting out
There is a letter to the editor in the Colorado Springs Independent about District Attorney Dan May and Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder. The community is getting a clue about their corruption. We have reported multiple times about their coverup of the Micah Flick death. They know there will be many difficult questions if they release the facts about what really happened that day. Every other agency that has had an officer involved shooting in Colorado has already released a great deal of information. Why is Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder and DA Dan May keeping everything a secret? They are even keeping the facts secret from those who were there. EPSO has not had a debrief with the Deputies that were involved in the shooting. It’s been over 6 months! What are they trying to keep secret? Are they going to try to keep it secret until after the election in November?
They have not even released that Deputy Jeremy Juhl was shot by friendly fire in the most recent shooting. Maybe Elder does not want everyone to know that it did not happen the way he told the media. According to Liar Sheriff Elder it was like the shoot out at the OK corral. From what we hear only one deputy (C.W.) shot and there was no return fire. When will the truth about this shooting come out? Where is the transparency that Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder promised? The real question is; can Elder ever tell the truth?
Dan May and Bill Elder need to go.

Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s Day in Federal Court
Next week Corrupt Sheriff Elder will be sitting at the DEFENSE table in federal court. Wonder how he will like that? We believe there is still a chance Elder and the county will make a last minute offer to settle. WE HOPE NOT! We want to see Corrupt Elder take the stand. Will he lie like he did in Maketa’s trial? With all the lies he has told it must be getting easy for him. But this is FEDERAL court. Will they take the chance that Elder or one (or more) of his cronies will be caught lying? For those who have been asking for details. The trial starts next Monday, August 13th, 2018. It will be held in Courtroom 202 in the Byron Roger’s building located at 19th and Stout Street. It should last all week. It could be the trial of the year. Could this be the first of many trials for corrupt elder? Many more lawsuits are coming.
Bill Elder is the most hated and Corrupt Sheriff EVER!
Tuesday, August 7, 2018
It’s the lazy days of summer. We hope everyone is relaxing and having a great summer. We are relaxing as well and will have more stories soon. Corrupt Sheriff Elder’s federal trial for retaliation starts next Monday. Wonder if the media will cover it?

Is Corrupt Elder’s description of latest EPSO Shooting accurate?
Corrupt Sheriff Elder held another press conference after the latest officer involved shooting that left one deputy injured and the suspect dead. According to KKTV’s report Elder stated they exchanged gun fire with what KKTV described as several heavily armed individuals. This is not what we are hearing. Elder did not announce any arrests, so where are these other “heavily armed individuals”? It is so obvious Elder is over his head. He needs to learn to say; ” It’s early in our investigation and I can not confirm anything at this point. I will have more for you later”.
We will see if Elder provides the media with a more accurate update in the next few days. Was it a big shoot out like Elder suggests or a standard take down of one armed person with maybe friendly fire?
Sunday, July 22, 2018
Why will the actions of Jackie Kirby guarantee wrongfully terminated Sgt. Duda a HUGE payout?
We are working on a story that will shed new light why Sgt. Duda will have a great case for retaliation against Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder. Rumor has it Elder wants Kirby GONE because she has become a major liability. Does he know, based on her past conduct, she can not be trusted? It’s hard to trust anyone who has backstabbed so many “friends” in the past. We even heard a rumor she had a friend contact Elder’s challenger in the republican primary and offered to reveal incriminating evidence on Elder for a guaranteed position in his administration. We could not confirm this rumor; nor do we believe it. We hope to have an article by the end of the week.
For those who are keeping score there are currently four (4) complaints or lawsuits (that we know of) filed against Corrupt Sheriff Elder for his malicious unethical actions against employees or former employees during his term. We hear more are coming. Many complaints have already been settled with large payouts by the county commissioners.
AUGUST COULD BE A VERY HOT MONTH FOR CORRUPT SHERIFF ELDER

Calls for Independent Investigation
It appears the media believes there should be an independent investigation into the Micah Flick shooting. If District Attorney Dan May, who is currently in charge of the investigation, has his way he will continue to run the investigation so he can coverup for his buddy Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder. However, if he does give in to public pressure for an independent investigation he will probably ask the 18th judicial district because he use to work there and they will do whatever he wants. If there is to be a truly independent investigation it can not be by the 4th or the 18th judicial districts. DA Dan May and Corrupt Sheriff Elder are still in coverup mode; they will do whatever they can to keep the truth from the public. We hope the media keeps “digging” and does not give up.
Pam Zuback with the Colorado Springs Independent can take credit for breaking what could be the biggest story of the year. So far KKTV, KOAA and the Gazette have done stories. Waiting for Fox21 and KRDO to get in the game. It will be interesting to see if any Denver stations pick up the story. Things are starting to get interesting.

We have a message to our local media concerning the Micah Flick death
More evidence revealing what really happened when Micah Flick was killed
It appears the media is getting interested in knowing what really happened when Micah Flick was killed.
Witnesses to the shooting on February 5th have come forward and stated the officers did not identify themselves prior to the shooting. How is Corrupt Sheriff Elder going to continue to cover it up? What happens if DA Dan May announces it was a legal shooting? Will he then be guilty of a crime?
They have been caught, the truth is out, what are they going to do?
Thursday, July 19, 2018
Corrupt Sheriff Elder caught Lying Again!
More Evidence Corrupt Sheriff Elder Mislead public about Detective Micah Flick’s Death
Many feel Corrupt Sheriff Elder exploited the death of Detective Micah Flick to help his reelection campaign. Elder talks a lot about the death of Micah Flick, but not about how it happened. Elder knows he is in trouble when his friends at the Colorado Springs Gazette feel compelled to write a story questioning his explanation of what actually happened that day. (PDF Version) The Gazette must be embarrassed the CS independent broke the story weeks ago. There is obviously a reason Corrupt Sheriff Elder wants the Autopsy reports secret.
Is Corrupt Sheriff Elder responsible for Micah Flick’s death?
We were told by multiple sources law enforcement did not have their weapons out, did not identify themselves, nor did they have any visible emblems (badges) showing they were cops prior to Detective Flick “bear” hugging the suspect. We were also told this was intentional based on directions given by leadership. If true, this means Corrupt Sheriff Elder is directly responsible for the death of Micah Flick. It also means EPSO, CSPD, and CSP could all be liable for the entire event.

It appears Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder has come up with a new strategy. Why fix a problem when you can just make things so bad everyone will leave? And if they don’t, just come up with bogus charges and fire the ones you don’t like. It takes 2-3 years for a lawsuit to go to trial, so you have that long before you have to worry about it. It appears our county commissioners don’t care; they like giving out cash like its candy.
Many employees are just counting the days to their retirement. They are holding on until they are “golden”. Most can tell you exactly how many years, months, and days they have to put up with this idiot of a Sheriff before they can retire. Many “bought” years or left prior to their plans just to get out because things are so bad.
EPSO is loosing all their veteran Employees; But Elder does not care. It’s all about the money; not protecting our community. Elder just keeps talking about his “weed” busts hoping everyone will look at the shiny object. “Look, Squirrel!” Let’s talk about how many Deputies are on the street each day protecting our community? Or even better; where is all the 1A money? Elder is “gutting” the office and it will be completely destroyed by the time he leaves office.
The truth will come out and Elder will be known as the worst Sheriff ever.
Sunday, July 15, 2018
I can’t take this place any longer
Everyone is leaving EPSO, some quicker than others.
According to a source, El Paso County was notified that Stephanie Gangemi’s employment at EPSO ended as of Friday, July 13, 2018. We reached out to a source within EPSO who confirmed she is leaving, but was not sure when her last day would be. We continue to verify, but the rumor is the mental health expert went mental on Corrupt Sheriff Elder. She continued to make demands to include an office on the 5th floor. Was her focus on helping people with mental health issues or on a big office and other perks? This fits the profile of the rest of Elder’s command staff. Their motto should be; “What’s in it for me?” or “show me the money“. Does anyone on Elder’s command staff actually care about law enforcement or protecting the community?
We also heard rumors Janet wanted her gone because she did not want any competition on the 5th floor. There can only be one queen bee? We hear Jackie Kirby has become a liability for Elder and she might be the next to leave.
Many have told us no one wants to go up to the fifth floor because Elder and his command staff are out of control. The phrase “keep your head down” is spoken everyday by employees. Everyone is depressed because they are afraid they are going to have to put up with Elder for the next 4 years.
Saturday, July 14, 2018
Is Corrupt Sheriff Elder losing his mind?
It appears Corrupt Sheriff Elder is doing what ever he can to try to salvage his administration. Everything is falling apart. Was he hoping after the primary things would settle down? THEY ARE NOT! More and more evidence of Corruption is surfacing everyday. Now Elder, in desperation released his “expectation” memo and is firing anyone who does not drink his Koolade. EPSO is way understaffed and Elder is firing veteran Deputies because they don’t blindly follow him and his corrupt administration? Not surprised. This latest firing is so clearly “Retaliation” it will create yet another six figure lawsuit the taxpayers will have to pay. Who is providing legal counsel to Elder? It’s like they don’t care about doing what is right. Have you seen recent pictures of the three county attorneys who have to deal with all Elder’s stupid decisions and lawsuits? It’s like they have aged 10 years in the last 10 months. We wonder how they sleep nights? When ever their phone rings they have to think; “What has that Idiot Elder done now?” How much more money will Corrupt Elder cost the county taxpayers before he leaves office? It will be over a million. But yet the county commissioners remain silent.
Corrupt Sheriff Elder is in “self destruct” mode. He cannot admit he is the problem and his administration is so corrupt he cannot hold them accountable.
The most recent person fired is Elder’s attempt to intimidate the rest of the employees. It will not work. We have had more employees contact us this week than any other week. They are furious about the “expectations” memo and the recent treatment of staff. The promotion of who many consider incompetent did not help. It has just become obvious to so many employees that Elder has no intention of doing what is right. He was a liar when he campaigned 4 years ago and he is a liar today.
How many more lives will Elder ruin trying to protect his dishonest and corrupt administration?
Bottom line: Elder is corrupt and cannot be trusted. What else is there to say?
Let’s hear it for Sheriff Bill Elder, The most hated and CORRUPT Sheriff EVER!

Corrupt Sheriff Elder gets Coroner to seal Autopsy Reports?
CS Independent continues to get to the truth about the “evil” we call Sheriff Elder. Their latest article exposes Elder’s continued attempt to coverup the truth about the shooting that cost Detective Flick his life.
Why would the El Paso County Coroner want to help Corrupt Sheriff Elder cover up a shooting that lead to the death of two people including Detective Micah Flick? Does Corrupt Sheriff Elder not want the public to know what really happened that day? Does he not want everyone to know that based on protocols and direction by corrupt Sheriff Elder and Chief Carey the team of Detectives attempting to make an arrest that day did not have their weapons out, nor did they announce themselves as law enforcement (LE) or have any visible identification that they were LE? Anyone with any LE experience knows this makes no sense and is extremely dangerous for the cops. How do they train cops to conduct a “Felony” contact? Guns out and loud verbal commands. Were the Officers given direction to not identify themselves and “jump” the suspect without warning? If you were being attacked by multiple individuals who did not identify themselves as LE would you be justified in defending yourself? We need to get to the truth; what really happened that day?
Does Corrupt Sheriff Elder not want the public to know he is responsible for the death of Micah Flick?
The public needs to know the truth about what happened that day. There needs to be an independent investigation.

Corrupt Sheriff Elder distributes “memo” with his expectations for supervisors
Elder demands loyalty and silence from his supervisors? If not, they will be replaced. Stay silent or find a new job.
Corrupt Sheriff Elder busted for Retaliation against Employee (Again)
The Colorado Springs Independent published an article this morning about Corrupt Sheriff Elder retaliating against an employee for supporting another individual running for sheriff.
This is a powerful article that lays out evidence of abuse of power and unethical behavior by Elder. We find it ironic that Corrupt Sheriff has the audacity to target an employee who obviously was trying to stop sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior at EPSO. Recently Elder sent out a memo stating his expectations for his supervisors. What about his own behavior and the behavior of Billy and Janet Huffor?
It appears from the article the employee being targeted is being accused of campaigning on duty. To quote the article; “he was placed on leave pending an investigation of claims he’d participated in political activities while on duty and used his position off duty for political purposes“. REALLY? Elder is accusing him of participating in political actives while on duty? ELDER IS THE BIGGEST HYPOCRITE EVER! The above picture was on Elder’s campaign website. WTF! Why haven’t they been suspended? This is also an obvious violation of the HATCH act.
FACT: Corrupt Sheriff Elder, while on DUTY, had employees (some in uniform) take time for a photo that was placed on his campaign website.
It appears Corrupt Sheriff Elder likes the county commissioners handing out money because this is another civil lawsuit just waiting to happen.

Federal trial against Corrupt Sheriff Elder next month

The Season of Retirements
DirtyElder.com stated months ago Corrupt Sheriff Bill Elder told his command staff it’s time for them to leave. We heard rumors Corrupt Elder wants almost the entire command staff to retire prior to his second term. He has already created a list of Lieutenants he wants to promote to commander. This is proof he wants his command staff to leave. Wednesday, Commander DeLuca announced he is retiring (again) at the end of the month. Who is next? It appears they can not leave quick enough for Elder. Sources told us now that the primary is over he wants Breister and the rest of the old guard to leave. He told friends he no longer needs them, does not trust them, and wants them gone. Expect to hear about more retirements each month. At some point you will hear Breister is retiring and Pete Carey will be the next undersheriff.
Soon it will be Commander Billy Huffor. He sexually harassed a female Deputy on video, violated multiple policies to include shooting a shotgun and wrecking a patrol car, violated the law by using a government vehicle for personal use, and has harassed and threatened multiple individuals. However, none of this matters; Elder has too many skeletons and the Huffors knows where they’re buried. Corrupt Elder will never hold the Huffors accountable; he can’t.
