Is that a threat or a promise? The crime the home owner and tax payer endure the Sheriff can not effect. Expenses of property owners has skyrocket under extremely unfair tax policies. Many of our homes are not worth near what the county assessors appraise them at today, so we already pay more than wallmart or home depot. if you really want more then talk to us about ending the tax breaks the big box and others get in this county.

Same lie they have told us Jo. Co. Tax Payers for over 4 Decades now, its all BS, even when they have a budget you can never get or find a Cop when you need one and if your lucky enough to get a hold of one they just make excuses of why they cannot help, so why pay for a service you never receive, in my opinion they don't deserve the .58 cents per $1000 property value they get now. Everyone should take a bite out of crime with Mace and Rock Salt Rounds for protection outside the Home and 357MAG/BIG GUN inside the home, I DO! Criminals are Bullies and if you do not stand up to them they will walk all over you just like Our Sheriff does, Levies Cost Money TOO!!!

Remember when the Sheriff said he would stand up to the Feds from blocking roads and help us miners?

HE LIED!

This Sheriff is a big joke. In Kosovo he was a wind bag and people look at him like " who invited this idiot?"

His wife rules his roost and she tells him where, how, and when? Why? She is the money.

We ask him to help when our mining equipment got stolen by USFS LEO and just sat with his thumbs you know where......

Well after two of his deputies shot down a local I just wonder just how much support his levy will get now?

They are investigating themselves and their own deputies. Any doubt what the verdict will be?

If you are ramming a patrol car with the rear of a truck, how do you get shot at close range on the right temple according to the ER Doc?

Strange things happen on Oregon dark roads at night. Any patrol car footage?

Maybe before you pass judgement on a shooting you should know all the facts? Or are you going to strap on a bullet proof vest and start saving the county? Were you aware one of the deputies umbrage shooting was a reserve and gets paid nothing? Or were you too busy watching your reality bullshit and sipping wine? I hope all of those that vote no see what happens when the cops are gone, I seriously can't wait til you need 911 and no ones there. At least when all the criminals finished you off there will be a few less assholes in the world.

Hey dipstick. The reserve deputy also works for the USFS which doesn't have a steller reputation in the area. Plus I happen to be a relative of the widow and close to the facts. Are you aware there were witnesses to the shooting? Me thinks there will be more to the story in due time. Was Walt without guilt, no, but did he deserve what and how that night we'll let the federal court decide.

By the way, the levy fail for the fourth time and why? Because the locals want the politicians to live within their means just like they do. The other is to hold the State and Federal reps to their promises regarding the O&C Act.

Oh, I am a former National Guard MP. When you become a reserve police or sheriff deputy, you don't do it for pay, majority due it to serve their community. Lately it's been a employment stepping stone to get certified and then move to a higher paying department.

But back to you asshole...go out to the beach and take a long swim east, I'm sure there is a trash fish looking for some bait.

By all means when someone is using their vehicle as a weapon to take you out you shouldn't protect yourself from going home to your family. Just let him kill you and your partner. Yeah that's makes total sense. Wake up !!! Yes it is never a good day when someone loses their life or has to take the life of another to protect themselves. Just don't take it out on the guys putting theirs lives on the line night after night to keep you safe. I knew the man and he made a had decision which forced law enforcement to react the way they had too. My condolences to the family but the cops did what they had to do.

Let me float this scenario by you....truck is traveling down road, deputies turn on lights, vehicle pulls over, deputies get out, vehicle speeds off, deputies turn on lights and siren, speed up to 90 miles per hour to catch up, truck turns corner onto Holland Loop, and deputies close distance at high speed, truck slams on brakes, skids to stop and patrol car slam into rear of truck. The patrol car's push bar raises the rear of the truck onto the hood of the car, truck is able to free itself loose, attempts to flee, shots fired.

Remember there are two witnesses who have cell phone cameras

The Grants Pass city police refused to help a 70yr old lady serve eviction papers on a violent man and his drug addicted nest of meth heads and drug sloots today. They say "They don't do that". Their levy passed, but what good are they? We had to HIRE protection to do business in G.P.! I say they deserve to lose all their money and us citizens just need to arm ourselves, shoot first, ask questions later. Apparently we won't have to worry about court and jail time, just like the criminals.

Stranger things happen to the Failifornians that wander up here and never come back out of the woods. We are sick of California scum that use the I-5 as a path for drugs, human/sex trafficking and all the degenerate activity that goes with them. Glad they are finally shooting them instead of catching and releasing. We are sick of the drug cartels tearing up our forests, and the Californians that help them get here. Go work on your own state..you have much to fix before you can even interject on Oregon's issues. More shooting, less 3rd generation drug addicts.

This cell phone conspiracy theory is very unlikely. There is no way someone would be on that road recording events that happen in an instant. Not to mention when the truck backed in to the patrol car the forward momentum flung the wood out of the truck past the rear of the patrol car. This would not be possible the way your saying as its defies the laws of physics. Your conspiracy theory has some holes in it. Trying supporting the good guys and you will be a better person for it. This county is gonna have some hard times ahead. Its a shame to think someone will need these guys to save their life and they won't be around to respond to their aid. It will be the wild west all over again. Let's pray innocent people aren't hurt or worse just because people think taxes are the anti-christ. Law could have been maintained with a couple less trips thru the local coffee house a month.

Do you live on Holland Loop? Do you know how many people own and listen to police scanners? I did on both counts before moving because of my job.
Think what you may, it'll all come out in court.
By the way, seen any recent new releases on the shooting? Any updates?
You know what the first thing to happen when a pending lawsuit occurs? Everyone stops making comments to the press.

Don't believe it will go to court nor does it need to. Yes I know how many people have police scanners and am very familiar with Holland loop. People are no longer reporting or releasing anything else because no one is interested in it as its old news. It's over and done with as far as anyone is concerned.

For a know it all you forgot a couple of steps of due process. Like the DA holding a grand jury, the release of the forensics and ballistics reports, the OSP report, and then the final declaration by the county.
So your belief is uneducated and best guessed from the bottom of a bowl.
