We know that the deputies and sergeants aren’t allowed to make any judgement calls on how to handle these situations… so what happened? And who are they going to try to throw under the bus to protect the administrative level personnel that I’m hearing made yet another decision to put budget over response — this time to a terrorist attack? And this was not even the first attack on utilities in the area. Interestingly enough, there has never been anyone caught for any of the incidents. Has the Sheriff’s Office taken these attacks seriously enough? Dedicated enough resources to them? I’m hearing not.
So while I work on bringing together information on this story, refresh yourselves with the following information:
The Wall Street Journal broke the story on a broader level yesterday regarding the PG&E substation attack in the Sheriff’s Office jurisdiction the day after the Boston Bombing — a story that I have been pushing at the edges of and looks like it’s breaking big nationally. I’ll be trying to work out what happened at the local level here.
I know most of you are not fans of the liberal media, but I found the below link to be one of the more comprehensive reports that included some of the Sheriff’s statements as well as a little more detailed information as to how other entities have mentioned/addressed this incident. Yes, our Sheriff Laurie even showed her face here, when she used to do interviews and not just campaign appearances so they had some Twitter material.
Here is another source with further information of the interest at the federal level
Please read up… I will be doing my best to make sure more is coming out on this on the local level… things like how the Sheriff has no strategy in the event of terrorist activity, no administrative personnel were astute enough to figure out what was happening until it was too late because they were again worrying about the guillotine of “overtime costs”, and again, may be another case of delayed investigation, delayed justice — did a terrorist get away because another Captain made another bad overtime call? I’m hearing rumor that is exactly the case.
