Sheriff Mason warns employees: "I am watching you"

or Victor Mason: FIGJAM!!!

Hinds County Sheriff Victor Mason sent this letter to his employees today.





Kingfish note: Got word that the Sheriff is livid about this post.  Well, Sheriff, it's hard to feel sorry for you when you have had your people harass me.  I attended a hearing last fall on the jail in Gulfport.  Sitting by myself in the courtroom.  What does the Sheriff do but have one of his jail administrators, Dalton, sit next to me and watch every note I take.  She then proceeds to follow me around in the building and outside of the building to see who I talk to and what I am driving.  She didn't leave until after I left.  Then there was Mistletoe Marketplace.  The Sheriff went when I was there and saw me.  Ms. Dalton followed me around and took pictures of me and everyone I talked to that afternoon.  She was even nice enough to smile and wave at me while she was doing it in uniform.  Only time I have been harassed like this by law enforcement and shows the quality of the Sheriff.

So what's a General Assembly? Like a staff meeting? On a Saturday?

Wow! Is Victor that shook up, threatening his employees and attempting to intimidate them, because they didn't show up for his dog and pony show ( On a Saturday)

Victor, can ya see your little grip slipping? Your employees don't like you, respect you, or even fear you. First the annual General assembly then the Christmas party.

Now your on the Federal Docket for August 6th for your sexual harassment cases..

Loving every minute of it..

SPOONER FOR SHERIFF!.

I've been in law enforcement for many years and I have never read a more unprofessional letter from a department head to the staff. This is one of the weakest examples of leadership I have ever witnessed. I've never even heard of a department head using such tactics to confront what he would consider problem employees. Most of the better employees and leaders of the Hinds SO are long gone. Such a shame its come to this. Hopefully the election in 2019 will produce a more qualified sheriff for Hinds county.

Sheriff Mason my brother, I've had the opportunity to work for Mac off and on during his many years in office. It was known with Mac what you stated in this letter.To the members of the Department that's not loyal to the office of the Sheriff, shame on you! Just as any job, if you're not on board find another place to earn your money. I'm not a supporter of the present Sheriff and I don't live in the county. I've always been loyal to all the jobs I've held.

To you Sheriff, who ever went along with you sending out this letter, I would be looking at their loyalty! It's said that its come to this but respect is earned.

Mac was a kick ass, but fair. I'm sure you're a good person, but are your cut out to be a good Sheriff. Best of luck my brother.

Signed,

A former detention deputy retired and living happily in Lamar County

Since his “inception?” I guess a professional spokesperson is not in the budget.

When was Victor incepted?

It's very unfortunate that every firing from this point on, whether ordered by Justice or not, will end in a lawsuit. That loud sucking sound you hear is tax payers dollars, if there are any left, getting vacuumed out of hinds county by any decent labor attorney.

I know you agree as I am a good person and probably the best commenter any of you have had the pleasure of reading.

Anonymous said...

Asking employees to come in on a Saturday without paying them seems fertile ground for a claim under the Fair Labor Standard Act. It is time to do away with elected Sheriffs statewide. This is a joke where raging incompetents became little dictators.

Read this post or I'ma... said...

Since his inception? That sounds kinda disgusting...

Vic...so you threw a party and nobody showed up, I'd like to remind you that sympathy is between shit and syphilis in the dictionary. Anyhoo - I agree with 6:44, a letter making veiled threats to your workforce is an amazing way to build loyalty and esprit de corps, and I'm sure this will sow even greater dissension and may even result in a few more lawsuits. By the way, nice job blaming the DOJ for you being an asshole - nice try.

And...if you have to tell your folks you're a good person and great boss - ya prolly not, just sayin'.

7:40 PM. If you think having the Hinds Board of Supervisors appoint the Sheriff rather than be elected you must want centralized county government which would be a worse disaster than we have already seen.

Anonymous said...

Let me see if I can disect this memo.

Mandatory; you can't make employees support you dummy.

Blatant disregard; sounds like Jackie Gleason.
Inception; who is this guy a stock or mutual fund, when you took office stupid!
Tried to do right? You either did or you didn't.
It's not personal; yes it was, when you and Pete Luke personally choose from certified deputies and forced from patrol and narcotics to work the jail.
I'm a good boss and pleasure working for? If you have to say it, its not true dumbass!
Your eyes are open; yournever there Victor.
Get on board or I'm coming to see you. Their gonna lie to your face to keep a job, just like you and Pete Lie to everyone to their face and they'll get you on election day..

Spooners Victory party won't be empty..

FIRST: The letter is plagiarized. It was either written by Bufford Pusser or Buford T. Justice.

SECOND: He should have had corn dogs instead of Krystals at this event.

Many of the sheriffs department worked the MLK parade on the 13th. Others probably

Your basic Solidarity Economy at work. Jacksonians go without on numerous fronts while their mouthpiece Mayor jets off to Cali to rub elbows with the rich and famous who don't have a cotton pickin' penny invested in the city.

When BabyChok is Mayor, YOU are Mayor too, except when it comes to luxuries and other perks only available to the very special people.

Jackson's latest bourgeois charlatan is now exposed.

Would you rather him be here and micromanage Miller as Harvey would've done?

Get back on topic.

What an ego! I worked and voted for him, but I guarantee I'll work just as hard to defeat him. He talked a good game, got good officers from other departments to come to Hinds County with big promises of cleaning things up! Not only did he not follow through with those promises, he stabbed most of them in the back, refused to talk to them, was basically unavailable and put moral at an all time low! Then he has been known to try to blackball the ones who leave the department. Thank goodness the surrounding higher ups know he's a joke! Only a moron would put something like this in writing!!!!

We have a good Sheriff in Lamar County, I would start with him,

Anonymous said...

I’ve been an attorney for many years. I’ve never seen anything like this letter. I’m aware of the goings-on at Hinds County Sheriff’s Office. And, it’s not good. As he acknowledged, he’s lost many tenured officers for his poor decisions & lack of respect or concern for his employees. Mr. Mason, you cannot dictate respect or intimidate people into respecting you if you don’t give it. I had high hopes when Mason was elected. But he has proven himself incompetent on numerous occasions. Time for another change next election.

Anonymous said...

Victor! That letter, even if it was political suicide, took some balls to type. Everybody knows you are reading these comments. You better get in here and defend yourself. I'll bet you didn't even show up at work today. Give us something... your going down in flames and everybody is watching. The "dissenters" are watching. The only person that can stop it is you. Say something....

This letter will come back.

Harassment becomes unlawful where 1) enduring the offensive conduct becomes a condition of continued employment, or 2) the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive.

@ Kingfish, 9:31, I don't see how remaining in Town and at the helm is "micro-managing". Danks was at the water plant and other places during the '79 flood. Ditto remained out of sight the Christmas we all lost water, and received great criticism for not speaking to the public. Unless the Mayor was out hunting for money to repair infrastructure, he should remain in the City during crises.

Looks loke I'm the beginning of his tenure and not so long ago, we use to have a few Mason supporters write in and comment, now..
Nothing!

Even his inner circle the last 6 months now know he's finished. If he'll do his best friend for 25 yrs in 8 months, he's now shown, He'll fire anybody.

Like most comments, it's now becoming comical and rhetorically entertaining each new screw up he jumps into. 2 more years, 2 more General assembly's, more rookies and veterans quiting and taking sides with Spooner..
This shit shows only going to get better and he'll still lie And deflect and continue to make himself look like the lieing,incompetent POS he always was and is.

Old JPD guys who started with him always said for 25 years, DON'T TRUST HIM..
Well, there ya go..

Scared of watching select people get singled out for BS. Now you see the real Victor.

Too bad Victor your lack of turnout at Xmas party and general assembly is just a reflection of your employees showing you, there're not scared of you anymore and damn sure don't respect you either.

There're gonna do the minimum to keep their jobs, tell you and Pete what you need to hear if asked and screw you at the polls.

I've already got more resources committed to run against you than you ever had running against tywrong and not for the reasons you think either...I don't hate you Victor, haha, everybody hates you, especially after you conned them into letting you be sheriff...then screwed the very people that propped your dumb a@@ up, paid your bills, and kept you afloat, etc...

But, I digress...just please run, that's all I'm asking. Don't chicken out with some lame excuse because Pete Luke can't drum up enough money for you to run on...you just think the news coverage has been bad.

Spooner, I hope you run!!! There are a ton of us folks that used to work for Mac and a bunch of us that work for Victor right now that are going to be voting for you, along with our families, friends, churches, schools, fraternities/sororities and everyone else. Except for about 6 people that currently work at the sheriff's office.

Landslide for Spooner for sure!!! The citizens of Hinds County deserve better, and as you can see, the employees definitely deserve better.

@10:12 here again. Victor Victor Victor..... well at least sombody offered you the opportunity to come forward and clear your name. I hope you're in a really good hiding place. It's going to be a very long 2 years. Bet you'll reconsider what you send out department wide in the future. The dissenters aren't afraid of you and neither are the voters. Don't bother wondering if your employees are laughing at you when you pass by. They are...

Good job Victor, you inherited Tyrones arrogance as Well And how did that work out for him.

I just cant wait till August when all the evidence is publicly exposed to all the public who's not really following.

Kingfish the one spying on you is dalton who is over the jail in Jackson. She is the one he is going to put as administrator when he fires tRushing.. rushing won't do his dirty cover ups like him and Luke want. The letter he wrote was threatening Rushing and everybody knows it.

Anonymous said...

@2:15

I guess Dalton didn't learn from her being fired from JPD's Narcotics division for allegedly stealing a dope boys money, then asking all involved at the scene to chip in and give back the alleged missing amount, of course, everyone started laughing.

Shortly therafter, she resigned and started working for Victor.

As far as Pete and Rushings concerned, they've done enough bad for several people and their not going anywhere.
Pete's got too much on him and he'll just run to his next shit magnet, ole Dean Scott at Pearl P.D.

Dalton must be dumb as hell throwing rocks in a glass house, with her rotten ass dirty history.

Go on Victor! Fire them all !

Anonymous said...

i just don't get it.... Sandra Dalton never supervised anything in her career until she was hired by Victor 2 years ago and @430 is correct about her removal from the narcotics unit. That is a well known incident and placing her in the jail as an administrator is a dangerous move. Anyone who has worked at that detention center knows there are plenty of opportunities for dirty cops to make quick cash smuggling contraband. It would be hard to catch the head of the jail. Hinds county gets more screwed up by the day.

These old school JPD rejects always land on their feet. Ron Sampson was fired for sexual harassment and drinking on the job. Now he is Chief at Yazoo PD. A leopard can't change its spots. Hell he made the news yesterday. Dalton will have her own headline one day too. Kingfish maybe you should do a little digging.

Voters, should vet the candidates themselves. Victors tenure is a replay of Tyrone's reign with different players. The Hinds County Sheriffs Office should be the flagship of law enforcement agencies in the state. However, the voters continue to watch as a former JPD has been walked across the street and attempts to run a SO like a Police Department. It is comical and sad at the same time. Hinds County has become a joke for multiple reasons but the sexual predator, comedian wanna be,clown of a sheriff that currently holds the office is at the top of the list. Victor has never possessed the administrative, budgeting or planning skills needed to be effective as sheriff neither did Tyrone. I would like to see someone who began their career at the Hinds County SO, advanced as far as they could, grew their administration and management skills in the private sector and has proven themselves to be a trustworthy elected official who works tirelessly for his constituents step up to help Hinds County out of this debacle.. Maybe Constable Leon Seals?? This county could use his leadership.

Leon's not running, he's more than happy being Constable, working his own schedule and making more than enough money and not to have his name drug through the mud by inheriting those Raymond jail problems.

Really? Really? The event was nothing but a bunch of self-serving, self-awarding garbage! Basically they created awards to give out to people that didn't deserve them! They basically go awards for doing the job they were hired for! People like helen brown who got an award, and is barely certified as a law enforcement officer, she can't even fire a weapon! His step-daughter who is so incompetent she couldn't fire a weapon and totaled several patrol cars during training. Dalton got an award and haven't been in the job that long! The reserve commanders are the only people at the Department that have integrity! The reserves make up half of the force for the Sheriff's Office, and get the least respect!

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug.

However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
