On Tuesday I sat in court and heard a probation officer call former sheriff Pat Sullivan “manipulative” and dishonest.
This made me think about what I observed of Sullivan when he knew he was being watched and when he didn’t think a camera was recording his behavior.
Every time I’ve seen Sullivan show up to court, he’s used a cane. He even used it when he bonded out of jail and was swarmed by news cameras.
But for some reason Sullivan didn’t use his cane once during time I spent doing some surveillance.
When I first heard the former sheriff was violating his probation, I spent four days doing surveillance to see if Sullivan was doing anything against the terms of his probation.
I saw Sullivan NUMEROUS times walking around WITHOUT his cane. There were even times I saw him loading some things into his car. I saw him walk into a hospital. I even saw him walk into a drug testing facility, all without his cane. He does walk with a slight limp even when he is not using it.
But for some reason, when Sullivan is surrounded by news cameras and going to court, he uses the cane. Here’s a brief video I made showing what I saw during my surveillance:
