Race And Money A Look At The Worcester County Sheriff's Task Force Overtime


In my continuing research into the Worcester County Sheriff Task Force accused of racism by Detective Frank Savage, I believe that I have found another factor in this issue...money

Reading the lawsuit I noticed that Dale Trotter as shown below
Trotter wanted to cap the overtime for Green and Savage which made me dig deeper into this issue. When I looked up the list of names mentioned in the lawsuit Nate Passwaters, Dale Trotter and Rodney Wells, imagine my surprise to learn they are three of the top earners of overtime money in the department. 

Nate Passwaters made over 30 thousand in overtime as shown below

Dale Trotter The Man Asking To Cap Green and Savage also made top earners of overtime


and Rodney Wells another defendant in this case 



I find it quite interesting that Trotter wanted to stop Green and Savage from getting overtime, and yet 3 Defendants in this case were in the top earners of overtime from the Sheriff's Department including the man that asked to put a cap on it. It certainly IMHO looks as though money and race combined in this case, because they weren't going to allow a black man to take money from them. The numbers above do not lie

This is a true case of racism. Trotter wanted black officers to stop making overtime while white officers continued to draw overtime and Trotter himself continued to work overtime. Now it's becoming clear why Trotter became part of the council so that he could hurt the success of Chief Sewell leadership.

This is why Police Officer have no business in politics and continue to serve as peace officers. This is strongly a conflict of interest. It's makes perfect sense now why Deputy Trotter ran for councilman, to do harm to the success of the pocomoke police under sewell leadership. I really hope and pray that their are documents to support this overtime issue and if this is true, Trotter should be headed to prison. I am ashamed of being a white man living in pocomoke with all of this unnecessary mess going on. Chief Sewell was a good chief to all of pocomoke. he got the job done and was able to maintain his integrity. Morrison have lost control of the council and i suggest that he take this opportunity to step down and go away. He has embarrassed pocomoke enough.

I have serious doubts as to the comment from 10:17 AM coming from a white man. Don't believe it.

I assure you 3:53 I am a white man. Attend the council meeting tonight and I will introduce myself to you.

I spent 32 years in law enforcement. I never once looked at another officer of any race as different, we were all brothers in blue. It saddens me that in the 21st century I read all this nonsense about black and white. If you are an officer involved in this type of behavior you should not be in law enforcement.

Last night at the Pocomoke City council meeting Trotter and Crofoot was caught in several lies. Trotter said he didn't want write in candidates to run for council then Crofoot said Trotter came to him asking for write in candidates to be allowed. This was all a plan that Crofoot and Trotter attempted to get Diane Downing off the council but it backfired in their face. After the January 04 council meeting the ruling for write in candidates was tabled to be brought up again in 2017. But Crofoot and Trotter in their own sneaky move tried to revise the write in candidate resolution without conferring with the Mayor. It was unsuccessful. Crofoot then became upset with a child like attitude and stormed out the room when it was discovered that he faked a January 18 meeting and met with three council members and conducted a unofficial/illegal vote for write in candidate but city hall was closed due to celebration of Martin Luther king birthday. Crofoot and Trotter showed a total disrespect for mayor Morrison and should be disciplined for their actions. This also show that mayor Morrison is losing control of the council. The chamber was packed to full capacity with voters who was concerned after learning Crofoot and Trotter plot to get rid of Downing.
