tinstar 11 months, 2 weeks ago on Letter - FBI does not need sheriff’s permission

DLoudermilk :As if don't already know. Turner got mad at the commissioner's because He didn't get his way. He then had Fryer call them. It very obvious to most people.


tinstar 11 months, 2 weeks ago on Letter - Turner’s measures have reclaimed Fair

Not a whole lot of truth to the above. The Sheriff's has prior to the current Sheriff, had assistance at the fair from other agency's. This is nothing new. As to gang training that was put on by the Walla Walla Police Department., by their gang unit. The search and rescue unit has always been a part of the fair, since it was started. There again nothing has changed.


tinstar 11 months, 2 weeks ago on Letter - Sheriff Turner proven to be a strong leader

The current Sheriff, with all his proclaimed world class experience, has cost the taxpayers a lot of money, on lawsuits. Deputies arresting a person in the State of Oregon, and the lawsuit of a former jailer. If this is the world class training and expertise, that is proclaimed. I think we can do much better.


tinstar 11 months, 2 weeks ago on Letter - Background checks for gun purchases work

The current gun laws work fine. Background checks are already in place. A criminal will get their hands on a weapon any way they can. The advocates for 594, are saying you can go online or to a gun show and purchase a weapon without a background check. Well that is not true. Background checks are done, at gun shows. If you purchase a firearm online, the weapon is sent to a licensed firearms dealer in your area, and a background check is completed before the individual can obtain the weapon.

People please read and understand what 594 really entails.


tinstar 11 months, 3 weeks ago on Letter - Sheriff John Turner has stepped up with motivation

The only motivation the current Sheriff has done for the department is to divide it. A very sad deal. He has put some deputies against each other. Made promise to some for supporting him. He has tried to intimidate other elected department heads, and maintains, He did not know anything about the FBI investigation. Which is a complete lie. Walla Walla County deserves better.
