I wonder what the editors and TV news directors thought was so vital that they could not send even one reporter to the Board of Supervisors meeting today.
One can watch it on Access Humboldt later or interview a Supervisor but to get comprehensive information out in a timely manner to the public, being here in person, hearing the discussion is more accurate.
The Supervisors cleared misinformation being put out in media. It was not Sheriff Mike Downey who brought forth the reconsideration request, it was Supervisors Ryan Sundberg and Supervisor Mark Lovelace. They did this after the recent McKinleyville incident involving David Fulton.
Sheriff Downey spoke, Eureka Police Chief Andy Mills spoke, SWAT team members which included Sgt. Blake Massaro spoke and explained how the Mendocino Bearcat was used in the McKinleyville incident and how it was used for citizen and officer safety, which included removing people from apartments, including those that had mobility issues.
This effort is supported by law enforcement agencies, Fire Departments, EMS and Public Health.
Besides the Mckinleyville incident recently, others examples were brought up by speakers and Supervisors. Supervisor Estelle Fennell mentioned watching the Dallas police officers that were shot at, trying to find cover and helping citizens to safety while they were under fire.
