Rancher's family sad deputies won't be charged

An attorney for the family of an Idaho rancher says their position that he was wrongly shot and killed by two sheriff's deputies hasn't changed since state and federal officials declined to charge them. Boise attorney Charles Peterson said Friday that the family of Jack Yantis was sad after learning the state's attorney general and U.S. attorney for Idaho wouldn't pursue a criminal case against the Adams County deputies. Yantis was killed after one of his bulls was hit by a car and the deputies tried to put down the animal. Peterson says Yantis' wife, Donna, "watched as her husband was gunned down, today's decision doesn't change that." Peterson says the family will finally be able to look at the evidence now that the investigation is complete.  AP

Today's Law Enforcement Training is not what most Americans grew up with. It flies in the face of freedom and liberty; it is totalitarian rule:obey,comply,submit, or you will be shot to death and left just long enough to bleed out.
