Lets take it from the top.
At least 3 departments and officers, vehicles, fuel, overtime pay etc. and in the future time, vehicles, fuel for trials.
What did we the tax payers get, 5 citizens that will most likely need court appointed attorneys, welfare for their families during the months and years! But not to worry they will follow the “norm” of being “forced” to accept a one sided plea agreements! There will be court cost, jail, probation fees, etc…. But hey, it is generating business for bondsmen, towing, attorneys, etc. all on the tax payers backs, as well as job security and publicity!
Where are the “victims and violence” in these supposed criminals crimes? Several were arrested for “ticket able” offences? One had items and offences the Sheriff stated on this forum he “would not” waste tax payer resources by arresting citizens over?
800 hundred dollars, yet to be proven to be drug money? What will happen to the weapon and cash, vehicles taken? In the end how many “Hundreds of Thousands” of tax dollars have and will be spent on , attorneys, courts, jail, prison, for this endeavor? How much safety for the tax payers was enhanced by these efforts, was it WORTH THE PRICE?
It “appears” they did catch some thief’s, we will have to wait and see after the trials.
While this makes for a supposed good “dog and pony” show, who were these people a threat to? How do you think these people will make a living and survive and feed their families after these “life time” criminal records?
I as a tax payer would like to see our resources, officers, courts, jails and DOLLARS spent on REAL CRIMINALS! You know those that have victims and violence in their crimes!
As a tax payer do you still feel good about this “dog and pony” show????
