Breaking The Cycle Of Hate


It has taken me some time to really reflect about things I have done in the past that have taught me valuable lessons. One thing I swore I wasn't going to do after getting involved in the Kelvin Sewell situation was doing the guilt by association thing. I realized there was one person I was not being fair to and doing exactly what I said I was going to stop doing, and that person was Billy McDermott.

I have never had any issue with Billy ever. I actually have not found one person that has anything bad to say about him, and I know from the Christine Sheddy case that he was a real gentleman and caring and helpful with her family. Why then did I initially decide to be against Billy? It's simple his association with Mike McDermott, the one thing I said I wasn't going to do.

I detest Mike with every fiber in my being and as long as that pompous ass seeks office I will be there opposing him.This however is not Billy's fault. Mike is buddies with Beau Oglesby who of course was Billy's boss. It is honestly of no surprise for Mike to attach himself to a States Attorney candidate. I want to point out in the past when Beau was running it was his connection and endorsement by current Sheriff Reggie Mason that helped him win his seat. Reggie Mason btw is fully endorsing Matt Crisafulli as your next Sheriff .

I can't let the association that was formed because of past agreements blind me to the fact that Billy honestly has never done anything to me or to anyone I know. He even hired my friend Mike Farlow. I'm telling you I tried to find some reason to hate the guy, but every person I asked had nothing bad to say about him. I'm just not going to get back into the hate by association game and therefore I am wishing Billy and Kris luck in the upcoming election and leaving it to the citizens of Worcester County to decide who they prefer to be the next State's Attorney in the County.

Nice Post, Billy is a good guy, and his wife is an amazing baker. Both are good character people.

Other than him not really being a trustworthy attorney, and associates himself with negative political people. Not sure why an intrim states attorney needs to hold hand and run a piggy back campaign with Mike McDermott. And has Beau Oglesby campaigning for them both while he is a judge. All the same old political secret promises, and I’ll pat your back if you pat mine. I think people of Worcester county deserve better than Billy and Mike McDermott, if people used their brains they would see the backhanded politics happening right in front of them. Billy and Mike run smear campaigns and mud slinging as a way to help themselves. Shameful behavior. The article Billy did on Heiser was down right wrong, and he feels that he would make a good States Attorney. Nope! And Mike..... Give me a break. He has criticized the Sheriff and the Sheriff’s Office his entire campaign. Truth is if the Sheriff’s Office needs as much help as he says, he has been an Commander/Lt for over a decade, he is just as responsible for the way it is. Open your eyes people, the truth is right in front of you about the McDermott’s!
You might have nothing wrong with Billy, but he by no means is innocent and perfect in anyway. I will stick with Heiser. Her long term experience matters more! Plus she doesn’t need to run her campaign with anyone else to win. Vote Heiser!!!

Billy is really an genuine guy so I'm glad to see this article and I feel I have to add something that's been bothering me.

As far as Heiser's "long term experience"... I understand that she's been a prosecutor for about 2 years longer than Billy but since 2011 I can't seem to find any evidence that suggests she's handled much of anything outside of district court for her entire time in Wicomico County. I'm not seeing any record (news articles, case searches, etc) to back up any of her claims.

Seems like the more people I talk to, Bill and Matt are the majority choices. Good guys.

How did a clown like Oglesby become a judge?

First Jonathan Chief Sewell never did anything wrong and its wrong for you to say guilty by association. Trial is right around the corner and all the dirt they did to him will come out in the wash. As for Matt and Billy I wish them both all the best of luck.

You got this one right JT. He's good ppl

I like Billy, and he is a good prosecutor, but Kris has my vote...she's smart as hell, always prepared--the people of Worcester will be lucky to have her.

From my job I've watched Bill in front of tons of juries. Seriously impressive. I've never seen kris with a jury, but apparently no one else has either? Has she done any?

Anonymous said...

Yes Kris is very smart and intelligent, something we haven't had in the Worcester county states atty. office since Joe Todd. They make anybody judges these days.

Supposedly nice guy who aligned himself with bad people.

Agreed! A shame Billy decided to attach himself to the wrong person just based on name recognition. Let’s be honest, everyone running for Sheriff shares the same agenda he shouldn’t have hitched his cart with anyone. Dumb, unexperienced move. But I wish Billy and Matt best of luck.

Not sure where you get your info from but ask ppl in Wicomico they speak highly of her. Which has much higher criminal cases. Better and more experience is what Heiser has.

How about a debate between the two and ask who will be fired/hired!

I'd love to see a debate! Bill would crush it!

Anonymous said...

Yea? I wanna hear specifics on these cases. Because case search shows her having only TWO cases since 2011.

After the above comment I went to both of their websites and watched their speeches. Not really knowing either I would have to disagree. That woman Heiser is no joke !

Debates are unreliable. So many factors. And ppl have good and bad days. Not a good way to judge anyone by. Just like when ppl hire someone you can’t go by only an interview. Resume, references, education, certification, awards, accolades, etc. I base a candidate on a debate is juvenile.

@9:14...I see her in court almost every day..look again!

I disagree in this case. A debate show how quickly one can think on their feet which is one of the essential skills needed for a great prosecutor.

Anonymous said...

One of the primary jobs of the elected SA is to try major cases in front of juries. Heiser has never done this. She is the queen of plea bargaining every case she can in the District Court to the detriment of victims. Wicomico will be glad to see her go.

Disregard previous post. It was not helpful to the debate.

Debates are only good if they are monitored and conducted in a non-bias fashion. And as prosecutors they should always be we prepared to answer any questions that may come their way about cases they are working. I highly disagree that a debate will prove anything.

Exactly. People are putting her down because she is not a good ole boy. And that is sexist bullshit. She is more than qualified.

Sewell was found guilty. Truth.

He is a pompous ass. Too bad that’s who Billy prides himself being groomed by.

JSoccer said...

Hired? Fired? Just because you win an elected office doesn’t mean you can hire/ fire people. That opens themselves up to a lawsuit. I’m sure they both know they can’t do “whatever” they want. That’s a dumb question.

Billy plead a child pornographer to a 5 year sentence, with a lot of it suspended and only got the whole 5 years when the pervert violated his probation. Why didn't that guy get real time on the front end? What was he doing out free in the community to begin with?

7:15 That is factually false. You cant just make shit up...lies will catch up to you. Call Worcester, they'll give you all the true details for anyone who really cares.
