Re: “Students Launch Targeted #JusticeforJosiah Social Media Campaign

The AED deliberators unless charged at the beginning of every sift, will always have less than 100 percent charge. Also, charging too frequently will also result in further battery degradation.

Also, the APD only has 28 officers...Less than 10 are on duty at any one time. Even less on patrol duty. What this means is that the personnel resources are not really adequate for handling large crowds.

It is SOP (standard operating procedure) to place any suspect or anyone under arrest or being detained in the back of a patrol car.

incompetence on the part of the APD has not been proven, they followed both the law and standard police practices.

The scene was secured in a "timely" manner as per CA POSt Standards.

Could everything have been done better? of course, but that would require more police, which the residents of Arcata have actively tried to prevent...

A tragedy yes, but the blame lies with the killer, not the police.

Unfortenley the sad fact is that the national "clearance rate" for homicide today is 64.1 percent. Fifty years ago, it was more than 90 percent.

this is due in large part to the underfunding shortfalls in resources and personnel available to the police agencies and also due to the public refusal to work with the police.
