Letter to the editor: Snohomish County Sheriff should stick to upholding law
Last updated 5/13/2020 at 12:07pm
The Facebook rant posted by Sheriff Fortney on April 22 regarding Gov. Inslee and the state “Stay at Home” order is unprofessional and puts the lives of the very citizens he is sworn to protect at risk.
As the head of our local law enforcement, I expect our Sheriff to set the example for his staff and for fellow citizens of how to uphold the law and show proper public behavior. This post shows neither of these attributes. The verbiage is disrespectful to our Governor and sets the stage for individuals and groups to defy the stay-at-home orders and put fellow citizens lives in at risk.
