CDP always portraying a man guilty before a fair trial. I bet if this took place at the Yampa Valley Medical Center in Steamboat the article would never have been written. Having spent nearly a year away from Craig, I realized when I can back last weekend how depressing and horrible Craig has become. I firmly believe that the newspaper and the horrible articles that they write play a huge negative influence on everyone in the community.

YUP once again the paper is trying to make someone look guilty without a trial!! He was arrested but we dont know why...??!! Why not get the whole story before you put it to print?!

I really hope this guy didnt steal from any patients but if he did...SHAME ON YOU!

"Arrested on suspicion of"... what part of this portrays the man guilty? What part of it is not factual? I see stuff like this all the time in newspapers all over the place. As I read it, the ultimate goal of the article was to announce the news conference. Since when are news conferences not newsworthy?

I agree with you all. Remember Frank Schmedeke, not guilty. The chief of police gets caught with is gun missing and a inmate returns it and it gets buried. This can't be the norm. There has to be something we can do about this. I am getting ready to go into a paranoid rant so I will quit with, I hope this guy is innocent and files a lawsuit.

I think the paper acted in a normal way. However, the point about having a little more proof does seem reasonable. His reputation could be greatly impacted for no reason if it turns out he's innocent. But still, the paper would be accused of a cover up if they just sat on it.

Respectfully, I think you are all missing the bigger point. Why is the hospital hiring someone like this? Their "everyone is replaceable" policy is clealy short sighted and detrimental to the community. The bottom line is clearly more important to the hospital administration than keeping qualified people.

The man is accused of stealing... The cops cant say that he was arrested for theft without adding "allegedly" or "on suspicion of of"... that's because he hasn't been found guilty by a court of law. The hospital did their internal ivnestigation and called the cops, if the hospital thought that this man was stealing they did the right thing. I think it is pathetic how whenever someone is charged with a crime in this county, the presumption is always that the cops are out to get people.... They had probable cause for an arrest warrant so there is sufficient evidence in place to justify the accusations... enough said... if this guy wanted to relax though, I dont see why he didnt just get a prescription for medical marijuana like the rest of the "sick and in pain" people that we have in the valley. People need to get off the chief of police soap box in this town, he messed up and was reprimanded... so what. Everyone has screwed up at their job at one point or another, does that mean that you should get fired for it? No.... Maybe if more people in this town focused on making it better and not just sitting around complaining about everything and how the world is out to get them, Craig would be a better place.

WOW native craig guy so naive obviously never dealt with the craig police or the school district for that matter most of them were dorks growing up and now they have uniforms and they are going to let you know who is in charge.and instead of profiling teenage kids and locking them up,and our tax dollars being wasted on ACET having kids snitch on other kids to lower their charges for possesion go after the real dealers not the petty ones selling a few pills here and there they know who they are and most of the cops and sheriff's deputy's live in glass houses anyway!!!!!! if you know what I mean

Hey obamablows....dude, take a breath already! Judging by your post, it does not look as if you dealt with ANY school district past the fourth grade.
