More than 14 months after an in-custody murder suspect managed to smuggle a metal shank into the San Joaquin County courthouse and attack a judge, a report on the matter has yet to be made public.

In the meantime, it remains publicly unknown — except for rumors — how things have changed to prevent it from happening again.

    Blaiming issue? Sheriff Moore in a TV interview, blamed the Paradiso stabbing, courtroom security breach on the "structural integrity of the courthouse." What a joke, does he really think the people buy that poor excuse. Paradiso was not adequately searched and was allowed to transport a shank to the courthouse and susequently smuggle it into the courtroom, allowing a judge to be stabbed. The ultimate responsible party here is Sheriff Moore. It is true that escapes have occurrred since the Judge's stabbing. Moore does not have the respect of his deputies, so very sad that we have had to endure 4 years of one mistake after another and nothing to show for it but ridiculous excuses that a 5th grader can figure out are a pack of lies.

    That's the same "redrafting" your city council, LPD, LFD, management and most government entities use. It's an easy system to use because the rules are made as they go along. If you think it's the Honorable Sheriff Moore who you are only blaming, maybe go back to ex-chief Hansen's days.

    Typical government bulls___. One guy covers the other guys arse because he skrewed up.

    You don't really think they will put facts on paper so they can be sued do you?

    Hmm... you're right patriot. What exactly is "redrafting"?Sounds "coverup-ish".

    Redrafting a report.....What is that. An officer creates a report, it is reviewed and ultimately approved and submitted to the DA. The DA may want to add something to the report, but redrafting. Sounds like the COUNTY DA is protecting the COUNTY Sheriff's Office from a law suit. The Sheriff should not wait until the DA report is made public before reviewing his own security measures. They have nothing to do with each other. If he can't or won't do that, it's time for a change!

    Sheriff Moore stated in previous newspaper articles that he would inform the public of the security changes that would be implemented as a result of the Paradiso security breech, this has failed to happen. Yes, TWO escapes from the courthouse have occurred SINCE this Paradiso incident, (which occurred on March 4. 2009). These courthouse escapes occurred after Moore claims to have made such changes in security procedures. Sheriff Moore has definite credibility issues here. His claim to provide transparency to the public in his changes in security have NOT occurred, because NO such changes have been implemented. Sheriff Moore’s credibility is in question and integrity is what Sheriff Moore lacks.
