Resign with your Dignity? Part III

By Kirk Allen & John Kraft

On July 31, 2012

What happens when you hire your buddy or your buddies buddy as part of the ongoing good old boy policy in this County?  You get the good old boy that in many cases doesn’t know his back side from his front side, literally!

The idea of putting people in any position of government based on who they are connected to is NUTS!  We The People need to demand accountability of our government workers and it can begin by demanding that any job opening in a public body be publicized for everyone so that applications can be filled out and turned in.  A panel of honest people that can be trusted review those applications and ensure the best person is selected for the job!

Most law enforcement jobs require a psych evaluation to determine compatibility with known variables in the law enforcement environment.  I don’t believe for a second that people like Tim Crippes and Dee Burgin could ever pass such an evaluation.  After reading the ISP investigation on the jailers under Crippes’s watch I can assure you they would have never passed such an exam! 

How Stupid can they be?

From the ISP interview:

Ball said he does not believe his DNA would be on any evidence that was collected in this case.  Ball said maybe his hair was on something of Utterbacks because Ball has given her one of his sweaters to where while in the jail.  Ball does not think his semen would be on anything.  Ball thought there might be semen on something if maybe it was on his hand and he transferred it.  When asked by Ball why he would have semen on his hand at the jail, Ball said he did not wish to answer that question.  Ball said he felt “uncomfortable” with that line of questioning.  Ball said he never raped anyone but would not answer the question about whether he had consensual sex with an inmate. Ball said he would like to speak to an attorney before answering those questions.

Has this guy missed every episode of Perry Mason or Law & Order?

 Suggestion for stupid jailersSpeak to an attorney before answering ANY questions! 

So what did the DNA evidence show?  It showed how disgusting that jail had to have been because of the time frame involved! 

Inmate Utterback was in the county Jail from January 7th, 2010 through July 4th, 2010.  We know that Jason Ball resigned June 17th, 2010.  Utterback reports the “first” time her and Jason Ball had sex was around March of 2010.  One month later (that would be April) Ball got her out of her cell block and took her to the file room.  Utterback said its Detective Hoppers old office where the files are kept.  Utterback said she and ball had sex on a chair in the room.  Utterback described the chair as a black fake leather chair with arms.

Tuesday JULY 13th, 2010 at approximately 11:00 am, Crime Scene Investigator DeWayne Morris was requested by the ISP Zone 5 Investigations to provide technical assistance with examining a chair for biological evidence!

That is approximately 3 months after Jason Ball had sex in that chair!

CSI Morris examined the chair with the aid of a high density Alternate Light Source using various light frequencies and filters.  A fluorescing stain was observed on the front exterior surface of the seat back.  The state fluoresced under the light frequency of 455 using orange filters.  Special Agent Crowder collected the stain with 2 sterile cotton swabs. 

Findings reported from lab results August 5th, 2010?

Semen Indicated!  DNA matches to Jason Ball!

The Third time Jason Ball had sex with inmate Utterback was on the floor of the file room.  Utterback said they used a jail blanket.  Utterback said they did not wash the blanket.  Utterback said they folded the blanket and put it on the top shelf! 

June 25th, 2010 a jail blanket was taken as evidence, Exhibit #6

Findings reported from lab results August 5th 2010?

Semen Indicated, Identified, and DNA matched to Jason Ball from 4 separate samples taken.

 Odds of those results? 1 in 19 quadrillion Blacks, 1 in 250 Trillion Whites or 1 in 130 Trillion Hispanic unrelated individuals. 

How is it that a chair in an office doesn’t get cleaned for three months, let alone a chair that appears to be “the” sex chair of choice for these dirt bags! 

I guess I understand how the blanket never got washed.  That would have required some sense of intelligence and the fact they were doing what they were doing proves that was a void in their brain! 

Who hired this brilliant example of a jailer?  Tim Crippes!  

Who covered up the Crimes of this brain child of a jailer?  Shane St. Clair, Roger Hopper, Tim Crippes

People I pray when it comes time to vote you pull your head out of whatever its been stuck in and realize that We The People have an obligation to our society to scrutinize our officials and ensure only the best ever see a day in public office.  Experience counts and its clear each and every time you have elected a sheriff with no experience you got nothing but trouble!  So much trouble that you are paying for it every day in your taxes because of lawsuits this county continues to lose due to a direct reflection of a lack of leadership and moral fiber.   

God Help Us!

    What on god’s green earth does Dee Burgin have to do
    with this story? Thank goodness we can be rest
    assured that neither Kirk or John could ever pass
    a psych evaluation. You have proved that in your
    writing and in your fits on the videos you take
    and display. I’m pretty sure we should all be
    saying God help us!

    As an Edgar County taxpayer, I am estatic that Kirk &
    John have taken on this huge task of exposing the corruption
    in Ed Co. I am sure there are other counties just as
    corrupt, but we taxpayers should not accept it. My sincere
    thanks to both of you for all the time you have put into
    this task and pray that you will continue.
