RESPONSE TO MICHAEL LOFTIN’S LETTER TO THE EDITOR OF THE DEL NORTE TRIPLICATE ON FEBURARY 21, 2015
San Quentin State Prison inmate was right in pointing out that the “good ole boys” shoot now ask questions later are corruptive practices that have been going on far too long here in Del Norte County. Newly elected DA Trigg seems to be on point with the “rest” of them.
Civil liberties are being violated daily here in DeL Norte County. Recently a citizen filed a complaint against a deputy officer. On February 19, 2015 at 11:30 a.m. the sheriff’s department sent two thugs down to pick up the citizen who filed the complaint, place him in the back of an unmarked car, sat him down in a small room with video camera’s, without legal representation, advocates or witnesses, and coerced him into signing a paper to withdraw the complaint. Clearly in violation of the Bane Act.
Was this another action thought up by our local District Attorney and County Counsel? We, the people, need to stick together. We pay these elected, as well as every city, county, and state employee with our hard earned tax dollars. There are government codes that provide that these people are to be courteous and professional at all times or suffer the consequences and get fired, Recalled, and lose their pension.
I am ready and able to take on that task of making changes for the better for our county, and I hope everyone in this county is on board. Don’t think for one minute your liberties won’t be taken away because they will.
