A very special message for Sheriff Carona

Law Enforcement Code of Ethics

As a Law Enforcement Officer, my fundamental duty is to serve mankind; to safeguard lives and property; to protect the innocent against deception, the weak against oppression or intimidation, and the peaceful against violence or disorder; and to respect the Constitutional rights of all persons to liberty, equality and justice.

I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all; maintain courageous calm in the face of danger, scorn or ridicule; develop self-restraint; and be constantly mindful of the welfare of others. Honest in thought and deed in both my personal and official life, I will be exemplary in obeying the laws of the land and the regulations of my department. Whatever I see or hear of a confidential nature or that is confided to me in my official capacity will be kept ever secret unless revelation is necessary in the performance of my duty.

I will never act officiously or permit personal feelings, prejudices, animosities or friendships to influence my decisions. With no compromise for crime and with relentless prosecution of criminal, I will enforce the law courteously and appropriately without fear or favor, malice or ill will, never employing unnecessary force or violence and never accepting gratuities.

I recognize the badge of my office as a symbol of public faith, and I accept it as a public trust to be held so long as I am true to the ethics of the police service. I will constantly strive to achieve these objectives and ideals, dedicating myself before God to my chosen enforcement.

Welcome to the Carona Follies

This blog was created on 3-14-07. The Carona Chronicles have been attacked lately by spammers. Many believe the spam was a deliberate attack by someone in the Sheriff's administration. I wouldn't put it past them. Hopefully this blog won't have the same problems.

I tried logging onto the Carona Chronicles tonight, and it was down again. I know that the person who created Carona Chronicles has no control over this problem. Hopefully this blog's server is more reliable.

Even though the blog is called The Carona Follies, any subject is open for discussion.

I wonder how many of the Sheriff's Department's resources have been used trying to track down people who create blogs, or other internet content, like this.
