SHERIFF CANDIDATE HAS SOME EXPLAINING TO DO …

|| By FITSNEWS || Lexington County, S.C. sheriff candidate Jay Koon has dismissed allegations that he is connected to the infamous “Lexington Ring” – a cabal of crooked cops and corrupt politicians accused of running an illegal video poker operation (and other shady dealings) in Lexington County, S.C.

Koon – who is running a “family values” campaign – has also stated that he opposes strip clubs in Lexington County, saying they “do not reflect the Lexington County values of faith and family that I know.”

Here’s Koon’s problem: Multiple sources have confirmed to FITS that the veteran Lexington, S.C. police officer repeatedly visited strip clubs during the early part of the last decade, often with members of the notorious “ring.”

Among them?  Danny Frazier – one of the “ring” leaders who was indicted last year by S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson.

“There was one night specifically that really stands out about Jay Koon,” a former dancer at one of Columbia’s local strip clubs told FITS.  “They must have been celebrating a promotion or something, because he was extremely drunk.  He got up on the stage with the dancers and his group got loud cheering him on.  While on stage … the girls pulled his shirt up, pulled his belt out of his pants and spanked him with it while one of the girls was riding him like a horse while he was on all fours, the other girls opened his pants and ripped his underwear off him.”

The dancer’s account has been confirmed by two of her former co-workers and by a member of the law enforcement entourage.

“It was a while ago, but yeah – not gonna lie – that happened,” the law enforcement officer acknowledged.

The cop added that Koon and Frazier were joined at the club on that occasion – and many others – by current Lexington, S.C. chief of police Terrence Green.

Koon was praised this week by The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper, which claimed he “possesses the polish, professionalism and smarts” to restore public confidence in the department.  His candidacy has also been endorsed by S.C. governor Nikki Haley, who said Koon was “the right person with the right experience to continue to move Lexington County in the right direction and make the sheriff’s department once again a source of pride.”

We wish we could concur with their praise, but Koon’s hypocrisy on the strip club issue – to say nothing of this new evidence indicating his proximity to the “ring” – is troubling.

Obviously we don’t begrudge anyone (police officers included) from visiting strip clubs, but Koon should have known better than to demean such establishments given his history of frequenting them.  Furthermore, the company Koon reportedly kept at these establishments does not bode well for “restoring public faith” in Lexington County’s law enforcement.

Koon and West Columbia, S.C. police chief Dennis Tyndall – who is also running for sheriff of Lexington County – have both been linked to the “ring.”

Two other candidates – Richland County deputy Justin Britt and veteran criminal justice instructor Ed Felix – are also running to replace James Metts, who held the post for 42 years before he was undone by corruption related to the “ring.”

The special election to replace Metts will be held on March 3.

The language is that of Redneck, which I will not utter here.

Three Rings for the gypsy-queen under the copper dome,
Seven for the Lott Family minions in their house of cards,
Nine for Sacrificial Lambs doomed to cry,
One for the Dark Lord Jakie on his porcelain throne

In the Land of Columbia where the Shadows lie.

One “Lexington Ring” to rule them all; One “Lexington Ring” to find them; One “Lexington Ring” to corrupt them all in the darkness bind them.

In the Land of Columbia where the Shadows lie.

Good article, Fits! Please don’t forget that Britt too, is tied to not only the Lexington Ring via Joe Wilson, but also the Lott Family.

Ed Felix is the only candidate of the four with no ties to the Lexington Crime Ring, but also the Lott Family/Richland Ring.

I’ve now changed my mind on the Sheriff’s race.
There is too much smoke on Koon, Tyndall and Britt.
Anybody tied to the “Ring” and their infamous associates does NOT deserve to be elected!
We’ve had enough of Joe and Roxanne Wilson, they are an embarrassment and directly tied to the “Ring”!
Bob and Donna Peeler very close associates of Frazxier, Metts, Jean Toal, Tim James, Donnie Meyers, Harvey Peeler, Joe Owens, Randy Halfacre, Ronnie Cromer, probably the absolute worse of the group of the entire group! Donna Peeler has verbally accosted Legislators in favor of Frazier, campaigned for and supported Frazier! These two and their affair destroyed two families 5 children and threw everyone into the toilet who would not condone their illicit and sick affair!
Joe Owens, Amodio, Tyndall, Halfacre all actively campaigned for, supported, raised money for Frazier, for County Council, Town Council and the legislature!
Donna Peeler and Britt both worked in Wilson’s office and Donna carried on her affair while there and working for the County, at County expense.
Frazier raised money for Haley and worked for her election.
James Metts, Tim James and Dennis Tyndall , Jason Amodio all worked for Fraziers elections, campaigned for him, carried out his dictates and orders. They cover just about the entirety of Law Enforcement in Lexington County! Frazier was taped saying, he had Law Enforcement on “Lock Down” ! Who else could he have been talking about?
The County needs to be cleansed of all of this trash once and for all!
You can bet all of the above are doing EVERYTHING in their power to COMPROMISE all of the candidates, with whom, they are connected.
Send them all packing, for the good of the County and our future!

The big question is … why hasn’t someone been able to link him to ticket fixing. State Supreme Court says it is Police Corruption.
Must just be common practice around these parts for sheriffs and police chiefs to shuffle tickets and illegal immigrants under the table for Danny Frazier.

Deputy Dog March 1, 2015 at 11:49 pm

rdj, I used to work with Jay Koon. And yes he did fix a ton of tickets. Many tickets were also fixed by him through 3rd party Danny Frazier. But Mike at the Beach is right. Law Enforcement agencies everywhere nolle pross tickets prior to the court date. It would be difficult to prove police corruption. But I agree with you that this practice is unethical. I personally don’t want an elected Sheriff that gives and accepts political favors so freely as Jay Koon does. Having worked with the “real” Jay Koon, I have a million other reasons why I wouldn’t vote for him.

If you had any guts you would go to Mr.Koon’s front door this morning and express how you feel about him.Slander him to his face.

You wouldn’t be sitting on this blog posting falsehoods anonymously and what the fuck is your 12 hour attack on fellow commentator ‘Mike’ about-how many time you going to mention he is a government worker or hiding behind his moat?

If you can arrange the meeting ill be there you can join in. That being said if you wanna call me a pussy to my face ill be sitting at Lexington Paint and Supply eating a chicken biscuit for the next hour or so come on by. 400 Columbia Ave.

Brave word’s from the other side of the state, but anyway the sad part is how wrong you are … I am nothing more than a concerned life long resident of Lexington who is not gonna let someone like you call me a liar when I’m not … as I’ve said before. Unfortunately !! I trully just want the best for Lexington even if that’s Koon himself but i just can’t let go of the idea that we could do better.

rdj March 2, 2015 at 8:38 am

And just for the record I have no interest in meeting you … Mine and Mikes comments go back and forth if he didn’t want to he could chose not to comment to me. But it’s mutual sarcasm. I wrote your friend Jay Koon a two page letter explaining to him that all i want is the best for Lexington county … when i called the police department they put me in touch with him to handle my complaint. The one Frazier told me not to pay. Then after i place my complaint to Koon i get a phone call back from Frazier saying since you called Koon and ran your mouth now you gotta pay the ticket. Not really the kinda personality we need. Sheriffs gonna need to be able to take some heat.

It just gets old, especially since it usually fails. I just hope Koon wins Tuesday night outright so it will be OVER. I totally get the anti-establishment thing, but this race has just gotten silly.

None of my people up your way are obsessed with this race, but that’s the beauty of the democratic system, brother. If this conspiracy stuff is real and has legs, Koon stands no chance. We’ll see in just over 24 hours.

TroubleBaby March 2, 2015 at 9:37 am

” If this conspiracy stuff is real and has legs, Koon stands no chance. ”

Well, unless you’re suggesting Sic is lying it would appear the “conspiracy” has legs;

““It was a while ago, but yeah – not gonna lie – that happened,” the law enforcement officer acknowledged.”

But where I really disagree with you is that “Koon stands no chance.” assuming his little stripper party really did happen. If Jake Knotts & company can get re-elected over and over again, it’s quite clear that questionable antics don’t hold enough sway over the electorate.

Mike at the Beach March 2, 2015 at 2:44 am

Uh, he pretty much agreed with the technical (read- provable) portion of my position. As for the ethical piece, I probably can’t explain it again if you’re not getting it by now. If an officer has the discretion to write or not write a ticket in the field, why would he suddenly lose that discretion later in the process? Officers very often come across facts not known at the time of the issuance that lead them to reduce or nol pros tickets. If there is no quid pro quo, there is no criminal or unethical conduct. By the way, prosecutors do it as well, often without conferring with the officer (and doing so is 100% within their prosecutorial discretion). Of course some of these cases are tinged with political influences- so is every other aspect of life- but they simply aren’t crimes. I would like to think that a solid, tax-paying citizen could go pitch the sheriff, prosecutor, officer, etc. in regard to their son, daughter, wife, dad, etc. who needed a break and actually get some help if the facts warrant it. This is really less about “ticket fixing” and more about feeling shut out from the inside crowd. I get that, but I am still waiting on the FBI roundup (it won’t be forthcoming). I am officially done with this line of discussion, though- everyone has said their piece…so I’m out! Y’all have fun with it, and hopefully we’re all done Tuesday evening one way or the other.

Danny Frazier’s choice for Asst. Chief Lexington Town Police J. Koon should publicly address these allegations. Maybe someone with a set of nuts (not the ones writing fluff pieces) will also ask him point blank….did he participate in ticket fixing or have knowledge of other officers in his department dismiss tickets for Danny Frazier. Did he have knowledge of Danny un-arresting his daughter and removing her from the back of a police vehicle while a sergeant was present. I doubt the chosen one will answer these questions and the Lexington sheepel will vote for him.

In-turn, someone needs to ask Justin Britt why was he fired from SLED. And is it true the faux Christian ran around with another man’s wife? Sure they’re married now, but what does it say about their morals? And how can Northside Baptist Church support him?

No need to ask Tyndall anything. Danny said he was in lock down. And the kiss of death from T. James and Dolan was enough for me.

My vote for Felix is a vote against the status quo.

Batman March 2, 2015 at 9:42 am

This is an easy fix. Have all four candidates answer the question: ” Have you ever visited a strip club during your law enforcement career?” .Let each candidate answer the question and don’t let them pull the no comment BS. That way everyone will know and each of us can make our minds up about the candidate.

You ask why does it matter next I guess. Well, strip clubs are known for not only the ladies dancing on the stage, but clubs are notoriously known for money laundering, drug transactions, false business fronts, prostitution, and human trafficking (probably not her in cola), It is this environment that most agency heads have always put down the rule that their officers should stay away from these clubs. Officers whom attend these clubs after being warned by their command staff are the ones that take part of the backrooms and prostitution and leverage can be used against them so their dark secret is never found out. Here lies the area where corruption begins. Do we know if there are pictures or a shady past that is hanging over Koon’s head and is being used, or does he just like the teenage and early twenty girls shaking every thing got in his face and grinding on him during the lap dances. In this case, I’m sure Mrs. Koon has been taken back from the recent information she has learned of and better than that is the teachers and women she has had rally behind him. These women have rallied behind him because of the clean cut version he has presented to them, but he is only VIEWING THEM-NOT AS A LESSER CUT OF MEAT, BUT AS JUST A CUT OF MEAT THAT HE CAN ADMIRE AND MAYBE THROW A DOLLAR OR TWO TOO.

CHARACTER FLAW: He has presented himself as one thing to us and now we are learning that maybe there is more to Jay Koon. The hypocrisy in his message is the most upsetting ( “do not reflect the Lexington County values of faith and family that I know”).

The position of Sheriff is the chief law enforcement executive officer for Lexington county. This position needs more than a candidate that has clouds already hanging over their head. Koon has to many early warning flags of problems to come. He has had Nikki come in and appoint him to a fictitious position (she should have never got involved), close ties to Danny Frazier, allegations and rumors of ticket fixing, strip club visits to the local strip clubs (not even smart enough to go out of town), contributors that back James Metts and Danny Frazier have given to his campaign.

DO NOT VOTE KOON FOR SHERIFF

I can not help that Koon didn’t tell of his stripper past to the Gov before she endorsed him, I’m sure she is running around now having people like you to come on here and try and polish a turd.

I have a plan. Call your local news agency and have them interview Jay Koon, Danny Frazier, and Chief Green, all of which were mentioned in the article. Have them on camera and ask the question. “Did you go to the strip club and have strippers ride you like a horse and spank you while you were intoxicated?”
Everyone can watch and see his facial expression and know the truth last and for all. Once you see the facial expressions of Koon, Frazier, and Green. You will know the truth. Then can come back on this site and say “Thank you Will”

Seriously, I’m not sure I’d vote for ANY candidate Haley endorses… Kindly remember that it was on her watch that the PORS was gutted, and benefits for officers crippled in the line of duty was CUT 17%. Not that anyone cares. NIKKI HATES COPS.

I hear RCSD still enjoys getting even with CPD over that one, writing off duty CPD officers for chickenshit traffic violations whenever they can. They just don’t get how wrong that guy was in what he was doing to that woman.

Last I heard 5th Circuit Solicitor’s office was going to sweep that under the rug until the victim, a soldier, is transferred out of state or out of country and then bring it to trial. With no victim, the case will likely be dismissed. Talk about rampant corruption!!!!

I will call DC at first light and voluntarily revoke my security clearance. I must be connected to “The Ring” as well.

Once only mildly interested, I now hope Koon wins it outright on night one (Lindsey Graham style), although even that didn’t shut FITS’ suck much.

Hey now…I work hard to maintain that moat! I’m sorry if I just can’t get my panties in a twist over every little tin-foil hat conspiracy and savior campaign waged in the discussion boards here. Moat or not, I live and operate in the real world, where the people know what’s what. Even assuming every bit of the stripper story is true, most thinking grownups would still not hand a department the size of LCSO to an amateur. That’s just the hard truth, and is why Koon will very likely win on Tuesday. To describe Koon as “ethically challenged” because he looked at some titties 10 years ago is just plain silly. People get this.

As for the ticket fixing fixation, wow. Just wow. I’ll be waiting for the sweeping federal investigation on that one. As I explained here several times, “ticket fixing” is a very specific term, and doesn’t amount to much in most places. Prosecutors and officers have wide latitude and discretion in regard to whom they charge, don’t charge, or nol pros. Only if there are untoward forces and motives involved does it become illegal. Everyone needs to take deep breaths and relax. Your grandmother might be on the receiving end of some ticket help one day, and I’d be willing to bet that it will be wholly legitimate. there will be no federal roundup, so put down the binoculars and open up the blinds. It’ll be OK.

rdj March 1, 2015 at 10:29 pm

I believe but most certainly don’t quote me that Judge Geathers disagrees with you … State Supreme Court states ticket fixing amounts to police corruption. If they were fixing tickets for me and mine just to get a campaign sign put up on main street imagine what their doing for their big dog donars .

Mike at the Beach March 1, 2015 at 10:43 pm

OK…you’re not getting me. I am telling you that prosecutors and cops at all levels eat tickets every week here in SC (and every other state, for that matter). In about 99% of the cases there is nothing illegal about it. It’s called prosecutorial discretion. Turns out the defendant was an informant, had extenuating circumstances, or is just a really solid citizen in need of a break. If it’s patently illegal (as you and your judge friend assert), then let’s bring on the feds! Here’s yet another spot wherein my reality-based approach to life saves me tons of time- I won’t be calling the feds, because I know they won’t be coming. There’s nothing for them to come to. Don’t take my word for it…call ’em up yourself if you doubt me. Nol prossed tickets are a matter of public record. Go get ’em tiger!

rdj March 1, 2015 at 11:17 pm

Maybe I expect to much from people …
I’ve experienced quite a bit in my life that says quit trying to figure it out, you can’t change a thing. Even had a friend of mine whose a judge tell me to quit posting bad comments about Koon even anonymous slander can bite you in the ass. I told him I was sad that he wouldn’t want me to speak the truth to try and better my community.
Anyway … I’ve said it many times I trully pray the people and the officers get the sheriff they deserve.

Fortunately for me I speak the truth and brought the whole situation to his attention on March 8th 2010 when it happened even read my letter to Koon to him before I took it to the police department so hes very aware of the situation. Stated he could make Koon sit down and talk to me if I didn’t get a proper response. Covering your ass with a very well respected local judge before you act goes a long way.

rdj March 1, 2015 at 10:56 pm

One more thing you fail to see from behind the moat … Sheriff Metts whose job Koon wants to replace was busted taking bribes from Frazier who also was having Koon do his favors at the town. I never said ticket fixing was as bad but lets connect the dots and try to unfix the game.

Mike at the Beach March 1, 2015 at 11:00 pm

…and again I say to you…”big deal.”

If there was a single shred of illegality that they could have pinned on Koon they would have done so during the investigation that hit Frazier et al. They didn’t, so your position has to be, then, that Koon frightens the AG and US Atty or that he is sooooo slick that no one could remember a single illegal act he had committed. As a congregant in the Church of reality, I’m going with the “there’s nothing there” school of thought.

They may not have been able to bring a 28 page indictment on him but hopefully enough citizens will choose to give someone else a chance before we end up with Metts 2.0

Then why did jay koon being as close to Danny Frazier and other ring members not stand up like the eagle scout that he is wanting everyone to believe he is and do something about it. Report it to law enforcement or something. No jay koon took orders and did the dirty for them. NO HE IS NOT GETTING MY VOTE!!! he had the chance to show us that he does not care if you or a politician or law enforcement, that he would enforce the law equally and the biggest corruption case lexington county has ever encountered and where was jay koon??

Jay koon has always hid behind the “family values” but when darkness falls and he believes people are not watching the Eagle Scout personality he wants everyone to believe he is, he is a dark sinister person. Remember James metts was an Eagle Scout too with a doctorate degree in education and how he fooled the public for decades. Going to a strip club is not bad if that was the only thing, but when you show and see who he associates himself with like Danny Frazier, randy halfacrer, James metts, and all they have done, then he can not sit back and say he is a “family values” man. Look james metts would probably still tell you today he believes in family values too but does not display them. It is a term that jay and other corrupt politicians have thrown around and not lived up to that standard. Again James metts was a silent partner in the southerns gentleman club (yes a strip club in lexington county). The fact that jay koon was with the most corrupt people in public office in lexington county and did absolutely nothing to bring their illegal activities to light or law enforcement and then benefited off of things like attending strip bars with them and dismissing criminal charges against their friends is too much. How dare you jay koon sit there and want people to believe that you are this clean cut Eagle Scout and then live a double life and using those strippers for your thrill then casting them as something against the lexington values as you know.

Her former husband was given a divorce on the grounds of adultery in August 2013, Justin and Jennifer married in December 2013, and had a baby girl in July 2014! Now, unless my numbers are wrong, or the baby was very per-mature, I would say Jennifer was pregnant when they got married!!

Since we are picking on Candidates (allegations that Koon might have frequented a strip club over 15 years ago with nothing but hearsay) can you explain how Felix is a front runner after being written up so many times at the Academy that his personnel file filled an entire BOX? His response in the debate is “you cannot be a good officer without being written up”. There are officers that go their entire career without a write up!!

He was also fired while suing the agency with lying to a superior as being a contributing charge as well as frequent trips by police to his home for domestic situations. Come on people and wake the crap up!

Tyndall has his own issues with integrity and links to the ring and Britt is a kid who doesn’t have real experience other than a “Task Force” and a family with deep pockets to help fund Leon Lott’s push to take over Lexington County.

Today will be the day that candidates plot to discredit the other candidates and that’s expected but should not be tolerated.

Look hard at these candidates and what you are willing to accept for the next eighteen months.

1. A good LE Officer who makes a lot of arrests, is going to get citizen complaints, because no one wants to go to jail, you are going to make families upset etc.
2. They complain because they are mad. Also when dealing with crime, you may have to go heavy handed occasionally to make the arrest, people do not like to be forced to go to jail.
3. Also when doing the above, you on occasion will curse. Sorry we are Men/Women who do have to vent.
4. SO IF YOU NEVER HAD THIS PROBLEM YOU HAVE NEVER BEEN A PROACTIVE LE OFFICER PERIOD.
5. Learning from Sin. D.F. has many sins, all who affiliated with him on a daily basis need to understand they can not lead the pack anymore. We need to heal for some time, then we need to confess our sins to all. The we can try to understand the why’s, then you may have a chance to lead again.

Our Funding Editor was there that night working as a bartender. She has not stripped professionally in over 70 years.

But, she still knows how to warp her legs around a pole. So to speak.

The night in question, our Funding Editor says with certainty that Koon was not in the club or anywhere near it. She is certain.

She says Koon was mentoring her great-great-grandson and several other teens who had been caught smoking rabbit-tobacco at recess at Lexington Middle School.

So, there you have it.

You can believe sic(k) willie and his no-name mysterious strippers and the equally mysterious unnamed “member of the law enforcement entourage.”

Or, you can believe our Funding Editor who has never lied or misrepresented the truth. sic(k) willie, on the other hand is known to quote Dust Bunnies under his bed.

P.S. If sic(k) willie found strippers from 15 years ago, maybe he can find the Holy Grail or the Fountain of Youth. Maybe capture a Leprechaun. Maybe bank the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. Or, maybe he just keeps making up stuff he can’t prove.

Mr Jimmy Metts was screwed out of his office as sheriff because of corruption brought on by Danny frazier and his lies Te truth will come out one day that sheriff Metts was and is still an excellent law enforcement officer and was only tarnished by people who wanted him out of office because they knew he could not be beaten in the polls

I didn’t realize Jimmy had a brother named Walter. Who else would say such bullshit?

We all know Koon will get voted in. The powers that be have put their stamp of approval on him. So, the majority of Lexington voters will behave like robots. But, the way I look at it is you can only hide stuff for so long. Besides this is only a year.

What an impressive load of lies– especially concerning Chief Green.

Now that the circus has ended and the vast majority of Lexington County voters have discounted all of the silliness spread in regard to Koon and “The Ring,” look for some good solid info to come out in the State (most likely by Tim Flach) discounting some of the nonsensical allegations made here (and by the other campaigns, of course). Another unsuccessful smear campaign…
