Laurie Bisch is running for Clark County Sheriff. She is a Metro officer herself and this is her second run at Sheriff. She seems to have a nice platform and the current sheriff is having a heck of the time with his officers shooting people under questionable circumstances, disrespecting the law they were told to uphold and various other complaints citizens have filed against Metro.
That said, Bisch got into trouble. From the Las Vegas Sun: Bisch filed a complaint with the board after she was reprimanded in connection with a dog-bite incident in mid-2008 involving a friend of her 18-year-old daughter. When the bite occurred, Bisch was unable to reach the girl’s mother, so she took the 17-year-old to the emergency room. There, Bisch falsely filled out a form saying the girl was her daughter. Bisch said she feared that if the hospital couldn’t reach the girl’s real parents, she would not get immediate attention.
Bisch did not, however, file a health insurance claim on behalf of the girl; she paid the $565 for treatment and $49 for antibiotics.
Months later, the girl’s mother reported Bisch’s action to Metro. Internal Affairs investigated, thinking it could be an insurance fraud matter. A police officer can be fired for insurance fraud or identity theft.
Metro investigated and overreacted to the problem. They saw they did that and they gave her a written reprimand for conduct unbecoming of an officer.
Instead of dealing with that and the punishment and saying thank you for Metro not throwing the book at her, she decided to take it to State Employees Management Commission, who then threw out the complaint.
A little advise to Ms. Bisch. You sound like a whiny little kid. You forged a medical document and that was wrong. I understand why you did it but it was still wrong.
Get over it. Even if the current Sheriff said to investigate the matter for political gain (which you cannot prove) it doesn't matter, you did wrong.
So, get over it and stop whiny. If you want to continue this to the next level, please do so, but then stop running for Sheriff. We don't need any whiners as Sheriff.
