Anyone ever watch the rigors Police Officers go through- training to make instant decisions when pop-ups show a shadow with.... is it a gun? Is it a child with a toy gun? Anyone reading who thinks THEY would be better at the judgement calls Officers must make?
Yes, there are rogue cops who are no better than the bad guys.
But "arm chair quarterbacking" is usually "played" by people with no skills.

Maybe Julia and Hal can cuddle up...(they are the same BTW) and talk about how terible this valley is together...I happen to like it here and enjoy every day...it is sad Hal has so many voices talking to him...kind of reminds me of Norman Bates...scary stuff...

jrm is back with his typical "character assassination" attacks on people and their personalities.
I'd rather see all Commenters contest the ISSUES raised, not the PERSONS participating.
It gets so unpleasant to read through the disparaging "trash talking"--which is a quick effort to silence people and reduce readership of certain articles. Basically a political bullying technique.
Instead of injecting vile and ill-will towards our local persons (no matter any personal opinions are about them, their ideas, or styles of writing), I hope to see more responses to their statements of ideas, concepts, philosophies, and belief systems.

Now, now, psmacintosh... You see, good old Hal likes to inject a little extra oxygen into the fire every now and then; I know because I've had a little history with him on these comment sections. That being said, Hal or Julia, whatever name he goes by obviously made a statement ignorant of the facts. He got called out and you defended him. I'm with jrm. I like this area. Now please, just calm down and enjoy this great weather.
