  1. Considering the crime rate all over Mendocino county, how is someone supposed to defend themselves on or off probation?
    You can’t have a gun, no pepper spray, no knife, not even a stick.
    But am officer of the law enforcement in Mendocino sheriff office can steal your weed, guns, and money and get promoted. They can conduct illigal searches against ones consent. Bully thier way into your home. Conduct lewd sex acts upon women. When a complaint is made on them they get promoted.
    Mendocino county is bullshit fake ass cops.
    I stay this because I myself am a victim to a few of these officers.
    Thanks for posting this rediculas arrest. Maybe in your future reports try getting more facts on the situation from the defendant that way the truth is told, not just the laws point of view.
    I’m sick of seeing everyone falling victim to the badge wearing criminals in this county.
    Let the public see the truth!
