Whoever decided to press this charge is definitely sick!
He/She is out of their mind! Sheriff Billy McGee took charge when decisions had to be made. Good for him!

Good for the sheriff. Atleast he has heart & cares for the people. He took control & helped his people out. Too bad FEMA didn't have a heart or mind. Rather let all supplies sit just like the thousands of trailer that are still sitting unoccupied & going to waste.

Here is anonther true story that makes me second look some police officers. I know cops that are more crooked than an old ladies finger.and some that actually like the helping citizens part of the job,(getting to the point)description they entered this field for. Police officers from Arizona also helped a young teen escape from being a victim of sex trafficking.Police officers have the ability to enforce whatever they want most the time.I have a 2 faced opinion when it comes to police.I heard of a few,that would let girls perform sexual favors to get them out of trouble. But there are those actually fighting to save lifes everyday. In this case way to go,sir! You did take charge,which you have the ability to do,but violated the law and policy. He save probaly more than one life here,and I don't think any type of punishment should be issued,he should be promoted if anything.

He did not violate any law or policy, what he did was what he was elected to do. The FEMA officals on hand were so tied up in red tape and a Director who did not have the experience for the position that he was in.
