ED Magedson – Founder
Sheriff's DepartmentHillsborough County, Florida Ruskin, Florida United States of America
The Sheriff's Department needs a complete overhaul. I am disgusted with it. I have the misfortune to have a really bad tenant who is giving me nothing but trouble. She is on drugs, refuses to pay the rent, and she and her four sons are destroying my house. The most recent destruction was to two of the bedroom doors. The sons lock themselves in their rooms to get away from their drugged up mother. She then kicks the doors to get them open. Her last battle with my doors destroyed them, whereupon she removed the broken doors from their hinges, took them outside and burned them. I found out about this from my Realtor who was showing the house to prospective buyers. I called the Sheriff's department in Tampa, Fl. and was told by a nice woman that a Deputy would meet my son out at the house. When my son called to tell the Sheriff's Department in Ruskin that he was at the house, the Deputy on the phone refused to come out. He told my son to take the tenant to court. My son went into the Sheriff's Station and was told the same thing. When he said that the tentant had burned the doors he was told to call the Fire Department! What a caring individual. Now it's OK for the tenant to call the Sheriff and complain about me, but it's not OK for me to call with a legitimate complaint about destruction of property. So, what is the Sheriff's Department there for? Do they just sit around drinking coffee trying to jump-start the dried organisms that pass for brains in their neck of the woods? My tenant knows full well that she can do anything she wants to my property and get away with it, the protectors of the law in Ruskin don't give a d**n. My tax dollars go towards paying for this useless Department, can I opt out of my share of the cost? I think we would do much better with Vigilantes, they would do a much better job at protecting my property than the useless Sheriff of Ruskin and his gang of 'don't give a d**n' lay-abouts! Come on Florida, join the 21st century, teach your law enforcers how to do their jobs.
