I've only had limited dealings with the local "government" of WVC, but all of them were laced with problems and frustrations. The atmosphere that I found there was inept contempt. I'm never surprised when you find there's fire where there is smoke. Hopefully (and I'm slightly skeptical), this will be a wake up calls to local governments. You serve "the people."


It is sad that it took the death of a 21 year old girl for the corruption to be exposed at the WVC PD. Where was the oversight from the Police Chief, City Council, and Mayor that is supposed to keep things like this from happening? Most police are good, honorable people, but just like in society, there is an element that will use their power for ill-will and personal gain.
