On June 12, over 100 unarmed Americans were shot in a Florida night club where digital surveillance cameras provided a false sense of security. America’s founders held fast to the necessity for the American populace to be well-armed and trained so we would have the ability to defend ourselves and the nation if needed. It might be a good time for some candidates to read some history and stop using the freedom of speech to take cheap shots at the second Amendment.
Approximately sixty calls during the week of June 12-18. Twenty-seven traffic stops were made in order to promote traffic safety. It’s important that people are able to travel safely in and through Chewelah. Several assists to the S.O. and WSP; officers initiated or investigated half a dozen suspicious vehicle complaints; and we responded to two incomplete 911 calls. A neighbor dispute was reported; malicious mischief south of town; and a man was put in jail on a felony charge after he intentionally scratched a restored classic car. A threats complaint; an info report; a complaint of a barking dog; a traffic complaint; and an officer moved a few calves up the trail to higher pasture. Thunder caused dogs to bolt from their yard; a dog was impounded for loitering at a restaurant; a suspicious person was seen on the east side of town; a MHP assist; and a young man was trespassed from a business after harassing girls. A citizen reported loud music; an officer investigated suspicious activity near Park & Webster; two people were having a dog-custody dispute; and malicious mischief was reported but it turned out to be a silly prank. We’ll see you on the street.
