    Here you go Mono County sheriffs, a real bad guy to be on the lookout for. Hope you’re not hiding behind bushes if this guy makes it in to Mono County. This is where actually patrolling our county (not just one highway that’s already well covered by the CHP) might pay off. Not to mention, that is what your constituents expect of you.

      I hope they ARE hiding somewhere so they are in position and prepared to apprehend this guy if he makes it to Inyo or Mono County.
      Why does it seem so many have completely failed to understand the job of law enforcement? How is law enforcement expected to do their job if they are not out patroling and asking questions and maybe hiding at times? How are they expected to identify a bad guy if they are not doing these things? Sure, they are not perfect, but who is?
      Still, I’m voting for Ingrid Braun.

        We’re on the same page Tinner, I want them to patrol the COUNTY.

        Currently they are only patrolling the highways, which are a very small part of Mono County and already being patrolled by the CHP.

    He’s probably hiding out somewhere on Forest Service or BLM land. Check the backside of Grant lake or the back side of the Glass mountains. Never going to find him on the highway.

    From hero to fugitive, he’ll turn up sooner or later

    Hmmm. How does someone in a responsible position of leadership such as a battalion chief fall so low as to murder a girlfriend? One would think the personal qualities that lead you to succeed professionally would moderate against one resorting to violence in their personal life. How sad.

    It would be helpful for the public if law enforcement would provide an image of what Mr. Fleming might look like when he’s shaved.
