  •  They called 911 after they were pursued... (13+ / 0-)

    home, onto private property.

    The Sheriff did not come.

    The Sheriff's department called back, about an hour and a half later, and asked whether they still needed help.

    I shall leave speculation about motives aside. It has already been suggested that the Oregon AG be consulted.

      In light of the violence we've seen around political events (Gabby Giffords anyone?) I would consider this quite the dereliction of duty on the Sheriff's part, unless there's more to the story...you'd have thunk that a police cruiser could've driven by at the very least though.

      If you don't know why GREED and GLUTTONY are two of the Seven Deadly Sins, just look at the Republican Party and their Corporate Masters to understand why.

      •  BIG county, few police. (0+ / 0-)

        The incident took place in the county, not the city. Douglas County is larger than some states. It takes several hours to drive from border to border. The Sheriff's budget is no different from other government agencies - not enough money or manpower to be able to respond to everything. It doesn't take much to over burden the system.

        "Atlas Shrugged" is a work of fiction and should not influence one’s thinking any more than "Alice in Wonderland".
