Being present at the meeting myself gave me a good indication of the obvious politics involved while in uniform! besides the sheriff being in uniform, the local resident deputy and a patrol sergeant were there in their uniforms? What can we say the majority of the audience sat there as he stood on stage and mentioned he had a lot of experience in a lot of areas, but NEVER mentioned what those areas were. I found this disturbing. Tooting your own horn in public is propoganda, but whats more disturbing is that the audience appearing wise and elderly fell for the B. S. Also apparent was that the local resident deputy was in fact the ringer there. His friend from Gila Construction sounded like a pig going to slaughter. The questions were generic and never had any substance. Grant County wake up!

The problem is that if a person goes to those forums and speaks up then they are in for it. I would think one motivation behind these town meetings is to identify dissenters. That's the real tragedy in Grant County. It seems like the feds need to come in and just clean house everywhere.
Better yet, God should come and clean hearts and minds.
