Accountability for Sheriff’s Office

We have six dead thanks in significant part to the gross negligence, shirking, gullibility, and arrogance of Sheriff Bill Brown’s department. The killer’s own parents pleaded with Sheriff Bill Brown’s department to do something; there was evidence the guy was a clear and present danger, but they did nothing. They could’ve legally searched and held the psycho for examination. Had they searched, they would’ve prevented the mass murder. Instead the knuckleheads took the easy way out, accepted what they should’ve known and assumed was a con, and walked away. Hey look, no paperwork! These clowns should be fired, along with their boss. Sheriff Bill Brown is up for reelection in a few days. Anyone who believes in the power of accountability can vote for his opponent or assist at Or you can call for placebos like controlling the sale of knives, hammers, machetes, and BMWs, and then pretend to be surprised by the next massacre.
