Re: “The Yurok Grift

Hmmmm, so the biologist & the bird watcher are painted as accomplished, respected citizens with a historical account of their accomplishments. The Indian is painted as a drug taking maniac who went on a "mad spending spree" buying things like a shower door and car parts. Sounds like the Kangaroo Court's in days of old pioneer Arcata...you know, the days when someone who had one drop over half-blood Indian was denied the right to vote because they were less than human. How about running a story next week about Roland Raymonds history, his family and his accomplishments to let the public see him as more of a human being? Also....of the $870,000 stole, Roland Raymond was written checks for $123,000? That is only 14% of the total theft? And, the biologist and bird watcher took 86% of the money but their bail was reduced to practically zero? There is something wrong with the picture you have painted here...please try to keep some balance in your story and do not just scrape the surface...look deeper into who was responsible for writing these checks at the tribal office level and who in the Bureau of Indian Affairs should have monitored and conducted periodic site visits to approve of continuing advance of funding for the tribal contracts. Don't just take the investigators work and use that if you want the real story, do a little work yourself.
