Is it just me?

Lisa HoffmanDillon

Concerning the incident in the jail: Is it just me, or did anyone else find it disturbing that the deputies were awarded for “going above and beyond” their call of duty?Hopefully, that would be the natural response of anyone in such a morbid situation. If the three of them didn’t go to the trouble of actually cutting the sheet – now that would’ve been truly disturbing.Maybe the comments with the award were worded inappropriately, as I feel it is important to honor police officers and related staff for serving and protecting our community. I’m glad the prisoner who hanged himself survived, and I hope things get better in his life.
