I don't think anyone could say it any better than what you have posted TalkingTurkey. good job! And I have always said that I think being an officer of the law is one of the hardest most thankless jobs there is.
I hate seeing the negativity towards LE in Craig from the Police Dept right on down the the SO and the CSP. I know several officers and they are fine upstanding law-upholding people. I also know that if one of the hateful members in our fair town of Craig were to need help, the same officer that is being hashed over, wouldn't think twice about helping the ungrateful citizen. I've seen some LE go over and beyond their line of duty to help people and never once complained when they didn't get as much as a “thanks” - I wish the hate mongers would find something constructive to do with their time, energy and thoughts.

With my deepest and most humble apologies, I too would like to say welcome home t066j! There have been far too many sacrifices made then and now and there will never be enough thanks to let you all know how much you are appreciated. My brother came home on leave from VN and was detained and got into trouble on a flight into California. Why? He was wearing sunglasses while dressed in f ull uniform. Totally absurd! We are lucky he got to come home. I'm glad you got to come home. My heart hurts for those who paid the ultimate price and for what? For us… and yet we forget the simple little things like “Welcome back” or a big smile if we see you on the street.
Thank you for all you did.

If there is any doubt in your mind that the Obama administration's underlying purpose, in every initiative, is to create a complete, Big Brother type surveilance society police state, doubt no more. Check out what he is doing with the “Clunker” give away program.

Very well said, Mr. Collins. I agree totally with everything you wrote and I for the life of me can't understand why people made such a huge issue out of this thing. I know people who work in the court house and I sure wouldn't have wanted to see them hurt in any way! I am proud that Tim and all others involved did what they did to remove the possible threat. And I am very grateful that they didn't get hurt in the process. I was totally amazed that almost as many people clicked on the excessive button as they did on the justifiable button in the Question of the Week. What is wrong with you people?
I got a negative response to the statement I made that said I don't always agree with Tim but he is still our sheriff. There are lots of people whom I don't always agree with. There are people out there who don't always agree with what I do either, but it doesn't bother me.
I don't think there are people out there who realize Tim has a soft side as well as a tough side and I've seen both! I'll guarantee you that I sure would not want his job. He puts his life on the line everytime he steps out the door and we should all be grateful to him for this, not ridiculing him for doing his job.
So once again, I thank Tim and everyone who did what they had to do and hope they don't get discouraged by the mean folks they try to protect. Perhaps we could all find something else to exert our engergies and thoughts towards now and leave the Sheriff's Dept alone?

I believe that if the entire incident were not important, then the other law enforcement agencies who responded and helped would not have shown up. When things happen, certain rules have to be laid out and followed in proper order. I think Tim Jantz did a good job of protecting his town and you folks should be ashamed at how you are poking fun of the whole thing. I've known Sheriff Jantz for a good many years, and no, I don't always agree with him and have been upset with some of his judgements, but he is still the Sheriff. The former sheriff used to get ridiculed and beat up on also. Being a Sheriff is a thankless job. I truly think Jantz did the right thing in this case. Being in law enforcement means “looking for something out of place, or something that doesn't belong there!” So maybe it was an honest mistake, and someone just wasn't thinking when they left the cooler. Or if they left it there as a prank, they should have to pay for being stupid.
These things are not to be taken lightly in this day and age when there are so many mean and evil people lurking around waiting to hurt others. There are a couple posters in this forum who reek of hatred and bitterness and it oozes out every time they come along to leave a comment. People who know them personally know enough to steer clear of them. If push came to shove, I would not want these two anywhere near the situation at hand.

Thank you greeneye for the submission of removal for kittin's remark. When I read it I thought it was totally out of line. I agree with Craig_gal totally. My thought was, why would you want to put a drug rehab right in the same building (they do hook together) where there are drugs available even if they are under lock and key? Any druggie will find a way to get to them. It happens all the time. I don't like the idea of it being right next to schools either. Some folks try hard to raise their kids right and while drug rehab might be needed, I don't think it needs to be where there are lots of kids either. I was also amazed that freeman didn't understand the first two remarks on this forum. I wish there were easy answers but I can wish in one hand and **** in the other and see which one fills up first huh?

All this time we kept reading and hearing that nobody is interested in taking our guns away from us. So how do you explain this? I got this several days ago in my email.
House Bill HR45, Blair Holt Licensing and Record Act os 2009 (introduced 01/06/09) states that it will make it illegal to own a firearm unless you have been issued a firearm license. You can't buy or sell firearms unless the recipient presents a valid firearms license (no more private sales). If you fail to report loss or theft of a firearm to the Attorney general with 72 hours, fail to report to the AG an address change within 60 days, keeping a loaded or unloaded firearm and ammunition for the firearm where a child might gain access and use the firearm to cause death or bodily injury then you lose all rights to own firearms. Each update costs money and if you fail to comply, you lose your right to own firearms.
I do agree with whoever wrote the following. Laws only apply to law abiding citizens and are not written with criminals in mind. It is not about having laws on the books to prosecute individuals, but it is about taking guns away from us. A disarmed populace is easier to control than an armed one. The kings of old also outlawed weapons of any kind to quell the ability of the citizen to uprise against them.
Our founding fathers understood all this and therefore included the second amendment in the constitution. They made the right to keep and bear arms against a tyrannical state an absolute right that could not be revoked. They did this because the first thing tyrants and despots do is to remove a population's right to defend themselves. When this is done, the tyrants have no problem with the destruction of society.
