“I’d like to make one additional point on Sheriff Dupnik. I think we’re missing the point when we’re talking about his political agenda.
This man and this suspect has had previous contact with the sheriff’s office.
It looks to me, we don’t have many details on this, but it looks as though he slipped between the cracks. I think what we really need to look into is what happened when he had previous contact with the sheriff’s office with their negligence here.
And, I think the sheriff is trying to distract from that question.”
