DISTANCE YOURSELF FROM THE BULLY SHERIFF PATTERSON

From its inception, one of the main goals of Liberty Dispatch was to tell the other side, or the rest of the story that was never carried by a local media that seemed perfectly satisfied with having a leadership role in protecting the good ole boy system in Liberty County. That goal was accomplished early on as people wrote in to the comment section and began to voice their concerns and their suspicions and their experiences that up until the advent of this medium were never given a place to be seen and heard by a larger audience. While Liberty Dispatch has never claimed to be perfect and the comment section has been an easy target to be criticized as everything from “just the comments of a small handful of radical misfits” to “people spreading unfounded gossip”, we should all be able to now say the other side of many situations is no longer buried under the ego and agenda of a few “news people”.

In an odd twist, Liberty Dispatch is now aware that we were used and abused by one individual and we inadvertently had the effect some of the local media has purposely had for many years around here. The effect referred to here is the effect a media outlet can have as an intimidator or as someone everyone tries to stay on the good side of. That can be a good thing, if that role is used to encourage people to do the right thing. In fact, the whole concept of the freedom of the press protected in the Bill of Rights is to force people to always consider what they are doing could have the scrutiny of the public eye because tomorrow’s newspaper may tell the world about it.

Now that more people are beginning see that Liberty Dispatch has become one of the main targets of the threats and intimidation of Eddie Shauberger as he brags about spending his time and efforts working on “Outsider investigations” for Henry Patterson, we are starting to hear things we never knew went on with Shauberger. More specifically, we are beginning to hear that Shauberger has enjoyed intimidating people long before he and the Outsiders started all of their “investigations” aimed at our local citizens.

Tuesday February 7, 2012 Liberty Dispatch began to hear from law enforcement about Shauberger:

“It had gotten so bad out in Hardin that if there was a Shauberger involved, I passed the case on …….” one member of the Liberty County Sheriff told us.

After multiple troubling events having to do with one of Shauberger’s sons and law enforcement deciding to just back off and not do what they normally would do because of Shauberger’s intemperate threating attitude, the law finally was forced to confront the growing Shauberger problem. The boy was finally arrested for breaking into a church and the school.

A law enforcement officer told us this week that he knew if Eddie Shauberger was involved and he was confronted in an incident, he felt it was probably not worth confronting him because of all of the trouble Shauberger could cause.

When asked what kind of trouble, the officer looked up and said, “It use to be trouble on the internet.” When asked about what kind of trouble now, the officer said, “let me put it this way, I would rather someone else deal with that man.” When asked if the officer was referring to Shauberger’s friendship with Sheriff Patterson, the officer declined to comment further.

Liberty Dispatch was founded to give WE THE PEOPLE a chance to effectively confront public officials’ abuse of office and misuse of the power and assets taxpayers entrust them with and to fill the hole a complacent and sometimes complicit local media has left open. Shauberger used, and is stilling using, different people to achieve his own selfish and sometimes perverted goals. While it is true it took a parting of the ways with Shauberger before we heard of his bullying, we are now aware of his behavior. We wish we had been told these stories before, but we are glad to no longer count ourselves among his list of enablers.

We challenge Sheriff Patterson to publicly disavow Shauberger and to distance himself and any efforts Shauberger and the Outsiders have from our sheriff’s office. We also challenge Sheriff Patterson to publicly lay down the law and to enforce it concerning anyone doing “investigations” in the name of Liberty County and anyone violating the civil rights of anyone in this community.

Good luck on the trying to pry Shauberger away from Sheriff Patterson or Sheriff Patterson away from Shauberger since the new year began I have seen the two of them and what I assume is the Outsiders together at least four times. Makes you wonder if these guys ever go to work or if the rumors of a building to house some kind of cult could actually be true.

Your constant Eddie stories would annoy me except of the fascination I have with the county sheriff running around with criminal types. Anyone from up here in Cleveland that has paid attention has seen some of his political signs go up at the hands of a man that was in prison for drugs. it is fascinating.

This website is so full of bullsh*t. Henry Patterson's friendship with Harry Kelly, Eddie Shauberger,and Mr. King are a tribute to what a wonderful Christian man Henry Patterson is. No matter what you have done if you are his friend, you are his friend. Why don't all of you just go straight to hell and leave Sheriff Patterson alone.

Sounds like someone had a nerve hit!

Patterson needs to tell his rogue investigation team to stop forcing people on the taxpayers' payroll to find and copy and send out endless reams of paper to answer their knitwitted curiosity. We are in a budget crisis while they try to get over their personal crisis.

What I don't understand is this crusade Patterson and Shauberger seem to be on can not possibly have to do with cleaning up local government. the voters have pretty much given us a whole new start in that area.

An answer to the reference to Sheriff Patterson's goals is nothing like Liberty Dispatch would want you to belive. The Honorable Sheriff Henry Patterson has these friends of his (yes, from outside the county - big f*cking deal) trying to interview candidates for office so they can help the voters pick the best people. You will see when we get closer to election time. HEY AKINS I BET YOU ARE TOO CHICKENSH*T TO POST THIS!

I am a voter in this county and I like hearing from all different kinds of folks who I should vote for and why.But I would like to know who Robert Valzez and Fuddy Williams are. A picture and a bio. You gentlemen should be highly motivated to give us a little info on yourselves. As it stands right now I would guess nearly two out of three people will not be voting for your candidate for sheriff. i think the fact too much of Henry Patterson's life seems like it is in the shadows for most voters to risk another four years hoping his experience will make him better tha the last few years.

Patterson did not get along with the good ole boys that left office nor does he get along with the elected officials that the voters just overwhelmingly approved of. Maybe he thinks the only way he can work with people is to find his own judges, etc. and get them elected by having investigations to remove the ones voters put in office. Is that such a bad idea?

One Sheriff and one group of creepy unknown "Outsiders" choosing who leaves and who wins office? That is a recipe for corruption.It is one thing to openly advocate for change like we all can see is done on this website, but the Sheriff's underground posse smacks of a vigilante-type para military operation on a special mission that has to be kept separate from his job as sheriff because of possible legal and conflict of interest problems.

Well, Henry has had four years to get the Sheriff Department back on track. He has been a (no show)on comments. I guess he thinks he is above doing any interviews to the public. I will not give him another 4 years of this same attitude he now has. If you can not make improvements and let the people know what you are improving in 4 years. then you never will. Good bye Henry and Hello Bobby.

Henry. Interview? Ha ha ha ha !!

Due to the contining misconduct and threats of his supporters, Henry needs to start practicing the speech: ""We respect the decision of the voters. I, and all of my staff, will work together with the coming administration to achieve a smooth and orderly transition...""
