Karen Brooks & Rex Bohn are laughable candidates for this position, I can't even believe they're being entertained. Build your garage on your land, don't, I don't care. I care about personal safety. Crime in Humboldt County is the elephant in all our living rooms right now. The Police aren't motivated to catch criminals when they're back out on the street before the ink is dry on their reports. My car has been broken into 10 times in 3 years and my home has been burglarized twice. And every time, the police are ineffectual and incapable of doing anything except blame the victim for having stuff worthy of being stolen. I'd like to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that they WOULD do their jobs if they COULD do their jobs. So on what political level are people going to start running on a platform of giving a rip about the crime problem in Humboldt? So far I see a bunch of candidates that are thinking with their own wallets, just eager little beavers awaiting their golden opportunity to be corrupted. And they're all soft on crime. With a marijuana-conomy crisis imploding, I expect the crime rate is about to go berserk.
