You know, reading this is quite entertaining. The amount of knowledge and lack of judgment that is placed on others in the comments below are quite intelligent. I applaud your words of wisdom.

From what I heard listening to my Uniden Bearcat 8000 channel scanner, it was total chaos down there and then Jack Soberick arrived on scene and everything was quickly organized. Good job as always Jack

So many "words of wisdom"...."from so many idiots in the world". Then again, consider the locales they are coming from and there is no need to wonder why this is called a "depressed(ing)" area.

Just so you know the locals here are not all inbred hicks. Some of us do have an education and have all our teeth.

Kudos to Carbon County police.
I happy to see everyone was unharmed. Hopefully, this man will get the mental health he so badly needs.

No, not all of us are like that. Some of us do have all of our teeth and a college diploma. I'll admit that we're the minority but give me a small town any day to live in rather than the city.
