Re: “Not Even From Around Here

Linda - This article was a great piece of writing and I enjoyed it thoroughly. I wanted to talk about a piece of history largely ignored in Humboldt County and that is the migration of the Okies that moved to Humboldt in the 40's and 50's.

I got here in 1952 as a one-year old and we spent the next 6 years living in Salmon Creek area next to the old Hansen mill. We brought along grandparents and uncles and aunts and nephews and cousins. We provided a lot of the labor for many of the local sawmills, including Morrison-Jackson and others I no longer remember.

We weren't particularly liked by the locals. I was called Okie in school and many a kid bigger than me went home with a bruise and a better appreciation of Okie upbringing. We were accused of being liars and thieves and drunks but almost no one accused us of being lazy. And that was a good thing.

I recall one time my family got together in Garberville for a Christmas/New Years party in an old Victorian. As was often a problem with my family, people got contentious the more they drank. My mother sent my two older brothers down to the closest pay phone to call the cops. When the oldest told the cops what was going on, he was asked, "What's your last name son?" Needless to say we never saw the police that night, although we did meet a very nice CHP on the way home. But that's a story for another time.

Also, Humboldt saw mini-migrations of Swedes and Norwegians and Mexicans. And like many of the groups that migrated here, we were dirt-poor and our labor and our minds eventually brought us a place with those who came before.

Everybody here was from some place else to begin with and that seems pretty normal to me.

Re: “EPD Chief: Officers Fired More Than 40 Shots in Tuesday's Pursuit

There is more than one reason to shoot at an armed assailant; One is to disable the opponent, another is to suppress their firing; making them keep their head down and not be able to aim carefully to get in a good shot. Keep the other guy on the defensive. I don't think anyone goes to work thinking that today they're going to be shot at or have to shoot, so there is an adrenaline factor, and there is no plan in such an impromptu situation. At that point, all you can do is your best

Re: “EPD Chief: Officers Fired More Than 40 Shots in Tuesday's Pursuit

I see one bullet hole in the hood of that car nearer the drivers side. That indicates the vehicle was traveling toward an officer. Cars can be used as weapons too. Was that a willy nilly shot? No, that's an aimed shot that was just too low. More training for cops? Never a bad thing but when should that happen and for how long? Society expects the police to solve all of societies ills and get it right every time. And the topics for training and the methods are endless making them "Jacks of all trades Masters of none" but with all the scrutiny and liabilities of a surgeon who, as opposed to the police, gets to perform only ONE speciality in a static operating room.
