Danger!, the supes plan to erode even more checks and balances.

Peace be with you

I am running out the door so I can only briefly touch on this item. Tuesday, the board of supes of Humboldt will try to eliminate the coroner as an elected position. In short they plan on making the elected position of county coroner into a sheriff position. You think we had trouble investigating police murders before?

I’ll get back to you on this, but if you live in Humboldt then think hard on whether you want the sheriff even more isolated when investigating their own crimes. The meeting is at 9:00 am tuesday in the supes chamber at the county court house.

    This is probably the plan; every position that interacts with the public will be part of the Sheriff’s Dept. that way when you go to the planning dept. the clerk will have a uniform and a gun, so when they tell you that they are coming out to your house to “Inspect” it with 20 or 30 armed thugs, you won’t dare get upset.

    By placing the job of coroner under the sheriff you eliminate any impartiality, and every death in Humboldt County is what the cops say it is. And yes once they get the right to judge every death as to if it is a “good kill” or not there is nothing to prevent them from doing what they want.

    There is also the fact that today we get to elect our coroner and tomorrow our rulers rule we can’t. Could they do that with any elected position? How about president?
