Kingman Letter: Still waiting for the call

I'd like to make a statement about the Mohave County Sheriffs.

For about two months I've had harassment, damage to my home, and the final one was when they shot a BB (what if it had been a bullet?) into my living room window while I'm trying to be comfy in my own home.

We called the Sheriff's Office and were told the officer wasn't in yet. We left a message for him to call. No call. Called again and left another message. I told them I'd be home at 4 p.m. Not a sign of him. No return call, and still to this day (Dec. 21, 2012) no call.

If this is how they feel about their community, it's pretty sad. My problem may have been minor to them, but I pay their wages and expect help when needed. I've heard that the man (Sheahan) really doesn't give a hoot about the citizens, only all his staff. That's pretty sad in my book.

S.A. Edmonds

Hey guys, perhaps the Sheriff has decided these kinds of acts are "unconstitutional".

I called once and got no return call. Then the next time I called and was offered to leave another message, I asked to leave a message for, or speak with, that officers supervisor too. That worked very well... I didn't wait several months and then write a letter to the editor!

They may not come when you call them as you and your house are being shot up, but try going out some night during the hot and humid monsoon season when your swamp cooler ain't doin' nothing,and sitting under the stars with a glass of ice water in some rural area. Lo and behold, they'll be there in no time - usually within two minutes. And under the right circumstances, Hollywood will be waiting in the wings.

The "well known" neighbors kids & their friends damaged mail boxes on our street. I called them & they blew us off, come to find out the neighbor is "good friends" w/ the police dept.
Then one of the officers did call me, I feel he tried to scare me by bringing up something that had NOTHING to do w/ the damage to the mail boxes.
Now we have guns & will shoot the next time out property is tampered with.

S.A. send this letter to the state attorney general:
1275 West Washington Street
Phoenix, AZ 85007-2926
(602) 542-5025
Fax (602) 542-4085

It would help your case if you could round up others not being served.

I suspect someone from Sheahan's office has already called you once they saw this letter. The sheriff's office must be made to be more responsive.

I share your grief, I once called the S.O. after midnight due to a neighbors dog constantly barking. The dispatcher said there were no animal control officers on and they would not send a deputy, the reason being that, it was an animal control issue. The Dispatcher then went on to explain how a dog disturbing the peace is different than say loud music disturbing the peace. One thing about Sheahan tho, he is some sheriff, I have never heard of dispatchers being trained in law enforcement before, normally the dispatcher is just that, a dispatcher, not law enforcement or law interpreter, in all my years of law enforcement I have never observed a department run quite like the M.C.S.O.

Perhaps this is another example of the sheriffs and his "feelings" about what laws will be enfrced. Shooting at a house? No big deal because he had a "feeling" the perp had the right to do so.
