    This isn’t news.

    Facebook really needs a dislike button

      Mark –
      Deep breathing exercises usually help.

        I’m ok 😉

        I just figured I’d throw that out there and see which way the thumb count goes.

          Some rules of this blog:

          Thou shalt not say anything positive about law enforcement, or any other public servant for that matter

          Thou shalt never get caught dead enjoying yourself in Mammoth Lakes or Mono County

          Thou shalt not diss automatic weaponry

          Thou shalt not own less than 10 American flags and fly them less than constantly

          Thou shalt never diss Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, or Ann Coutler. Especially Rush Limbaugh.

          Do these Mark, and you’ll never get a “thumbs down”

            No, Blog, only one commandment – Thou shalt make adult remarks, and do not insult one another.

            I can understand the chastisement and desire to keep things civil on communication vehicles such as your blog. And if you sleep better at night for reminding people to not insult each other, good for you.

            Unfortunately, there is a factor in our society that has been using insulting remarks for so long in the political realm, that I’m afraid their rhetoric is becoming acceptable and not viewed as insulting nor breaking any societal code of civility. Take the work liberal. How do you think they define that word?

            Insults hurled towards opposing political parties and public sector employees in general – has clearly gone too far and might explain the Timothy McVeighs, the Unibombers, and any number of lunatics today that are at this very moment arming themselves to make a statement against the government that almost always results in violence and bloodshed.

            What I have attempted to do is counter those who think nothing of lambasting every form of government with the wierdest notions (one of them recently is telling his flock that the President of the United States is part of a cover-up at the Boston bombings. What I do is shed some light on their mentality and to the minds of their caliber. If nothing is countered who knows when and wherer the next Timothy McVeigh might strike?

            So Dr. how does all that justify your rants about a certain talk show host, and certain political parties and such? Or does it not, and exclude such behavior as being right and justified?

          • Big AL May 4, 2013 at 1:31 pm #

            Yes I totally agree with you, that there is a message in your posts for good, and I do see that you try to change things, but it is very clouded by the rantings as I said, in regard to certain people and political parties.

            I think you only anger people further and distant them from what you’re trying to do , rather than illustrate it in a manner that helps people change.

          • Benett Kessler May 4, 2013 at 2:05 pm #

            That may be. Sometimes you just can’t help making some people angry.

          • Big AL May 4, 2013 at 4:43 pm #

            That’s true Benett.

      Sure it’s news; you read it and even took time to comment.
      No one likes the sheriff till they need them.
      Social media is good for the department and the public; you are using it right now.

        One more reason I can’t stand Facebook.

    I agree a 100% Mark. I think the BOS need a Facebook page so that the public can really tell them how they feel about this Sheriff’s Department.

    This is all part of MCSO crusade to make people feel like they are trying to be a better department. It is all for the publicity.

    Funny thing you can’t teach old dogs new tricks!

  3. John P. Gross May 2, 2013 at 12:47 pm #

    Yes it is, I didn’t know about it

  4. Big Rick OBrien May 4, 2013 at 1:22 am #

    THIRTEEN, count them, 13 things that they will NOT allow on their page, and one of them is to eliminate any defamation of any individual or group, thus meaning they will not tolerate ANY constructive criticism. I guess that means they will only post POSITIVE comments about the MCSO… GOOD LUCK, WITH ALLLLLLLLLL THAT !
