I might have added my blog does have exactly ONE slightly racy picture (part of a news story about a character involved in mortgage fraud) which I suspect would be a violation of Pete's probation, click here.
Pete is the subject of a cover story in the new issue of City Pages, just hitting the streets now. Here is the story online, click here, and also click here to enjoy the really great cover art. So, you might be wondering, what did Chevalier-Jones say in response to my email?
Nothing. And nothing from her supervisor.
So let's talk about Chevalier-Jones, the person who was supposed to be minding the story while "Spanky Pete" was pouring hours and hours into writing his 90-plus page psychopath "midnight manifesto"...
First of all, I really have to wonder how a document that long could have been word processed in a mere two hours a week. Is Peter getting many hours of supervised word processing somewhere? So this psychopath (the courts have declared him a psycopath, it's a statement of FACT) can tie up the court system and decent North Minneapolis residents with his gibberish. And whose nose did it happen under? The nose of Bobbie Chevalier-Jones.
In digging into this story, I found that Bobbie Chevalier-Jones (pictured above) won some kind of award for "professional achievement" in the area of being friendly and supportive to Level Three sex offenders. Huh, I didn't know they gave awards for that kind of thing. Click here for a link to a little newsletter write-up about the award, but here's what it says, word for word, feel free to cruelly deconstruct in the comments section and please remember...you can be anonymous.
Bobbie Chevalier-Jones is a top-notch agent who shows compassion and caring and inspires her supervisees to succeed. She daily demonstrates her strength as an ISR Agent for Hennepin County. Her specialty is dealing with offenders who have signiﬁ cant mental disabilities or conduct disorders. Whether the offender has Asperger’s Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Intense or Severe Antisocial Personality Disorder, or even Oppositional Deﬁant Disorder, these clients are assigned to her due to her expertise in supervision of these high-maintenance clients.
Bobbie does the extra mile by not only speaking to therapists but by meeting with them. She builds rapport with her offenders, as demonstrated by their comments at revocation hearings, stating that they felt badly because they disappointed Bobbie, who really believed they could succeed. That’s a high compliment. She has attained the skills to prove to these offenders that not only can they succeed with their impairments, she believes they will. This is a strong motivator for many of her clients and often the turning point of their supervision.
These are offenders who require high maintenance and an abundance of patience. Some of these offenders are so verbally abusive and antisocial that others will not speak to them. Bobbie doesn’t solve these issues for them. She guides them through the decision making process so they will do it on their own. She sets boundaries for them and explains why their actions are not acceptable. Bobbie takes an active role in ﬁnding appropriate counseling, schooling or classes that will help better integrate them into society. She has been observed spending days trying to straighten out someone’s medication issues, attending countless meetings with doctors and therapists because someone is struggling in treatment, or even empathizing and counseling victims terriﬁed of her client’s release.
(JNS interjects: Continue to be terrified if the long leash she has allowed Peter Rickmyer is any indication, and I would tend to think it is)
This ISR agent not only excels with her clients, she shines when she is among her peers.
(JNS asks: Is this true? What I wouldn't give to hear from some of those peers)
She has exceptional communication skills. She believes we all work towards the same goal and should share not only information but ideas and contacts as well. She suffers no shame in admitting her mistakes and is hesitant to accept praise for her accomplishments.
Bobbie is not an agent who designed some system or worked a huge caseload. She is just an agent who has exceptional abilities that allow her to work effectively with offenders who many would be inclined to revoke.
(JNS says: Yeah, read that line again. Other agents think these sick puppies need to have their parole revoked, but Bobbie continues to sympathize and work with them. Our neighborhood pays the price)
Her communication skills, humanity, and caring make her a role model for many. She helps high-risk clients transition into our communities and assist victims with their recovery. Our community gains much from her work and ﬁeld services are a better functioning system because of her.
(JNS says: Bobbie, walk in baby steps toward your email and churn out a response about this sicko having access to a blog with pictures of my son)
ADDENDUM: The MCA wrote me an email claiming this photo--which was forwarded to me by email from an anonymous source--appears on their website. As of this writing, they have sent me no link to prove the photo comes from their website, but I would be willing to take their word. The photo is used, anyway, under First Amendment "fair comment and criticism" to discuss a newsworthy matter.
The same goes for the content of their newsletter, which provides newsworthy information about Bobbie Chevalier-Jones, the probation officer who has been letting "Pete The Pedophile" frolic around under her very nose. The things said in this newsletter are NOT TRUE IN MY EXPERIENCE and the content of the newsletter is worthy of comment by myself and others who are contributing their thoughts on this blog--including thoughts which are in DEFENSE of Bobbie Chevalier-Jones, as part of a free and open discussion.
