    still not impressed.

    You sit and wait around on the interstate long enough, drugs and criminals will drive by on their way to another state.

    How about the huge meth problem in this county, and alot of it is "home grown". Lets see you have your deputies busting meth labs, dealers and users in Navajo County, Mr Clark, and you may see my vote. (Instead of your massive traffic ticket sting) Otherwise time for a new sheriff.

    Russ you sit in your chair behind your computer and blabber about the meth labs and this and that when you have no idea what goes on out there. I can bet only 1% of what happens gets published. Am I part of law enforcement, no, but I do know plenty of people that work for the cities and the county and get to hear what goes on. Instead of posting all the garbage on WMI (which you do plenty of) why don't you log on to WE-TIP on put something on there if you know so much. Or you can call in to the local agency and report it anonymously. If there wasn't deputies out there running traffic people would complain about the speeders. That's all people like to do is complain about what and what is not being done. If you want to complain so much go to the academy and become an officer and do what you think should be done or help law enforcement by reporting things but quit complaining.

    Hopefully Barney Fife gets his paper work correct on this one. It wasn't too long ago they messed up the paper on another bust and had to let them go....

    I do know what goes on out there. I lived out in White Mountain Lake out towards the trap club for many years. It is a well known fact of labs out there and the reluctance of NCSO to go out there at all. It doesnt take a brain doctor to know where to look for meth production. East of Snowflake is another hot spot in the county. If the sheriff wanted to crack down (no pun) on the meth problem in his county, he easily could.

    It is my right to blabber and complain since the sheriff is an elected official and he is seeking reelection. With the press releases of an old hippy growing his weed to putting deputies more in the public eye by enforcing traffic law, it is obvious its election year for the sheriff and we want more results. Not speeding tickets.

    You dont like my comments? too bad. [beam]

    I thought PCP went by the wayside back in the 70's!

    It is obvious that these young people bought some tainted "gasoline" probably with the intention of helping some stranded motorist.Gasoline stored in a defective or unnaproved containers can leak subjecting the persons in the vehicle to potentially lethal fumes and impairing motor function and driving skills,Kudoes to law inforcement for their quick action which could of injured or killed these poor victims and perhaps whoever they may of tried to assit.
