After a long string of controversial police shootings in Humboldt County, little Del Norte County has one of its own.
A 27-year-old Brookings, Oregon, man, who led sheriff’s deputies on a vehicle chase, was shot and killed by a deputy nine days ago on the Hiouchi Bridge.
The investigation has revealed thus far that Eric Jones, whose father said suffered from Bipolar Disorder, did not have a weapon–other than the pitbull he allegedly sicced on deputies.
The dog was also shot.
As the investigation continues, it seems that even the weather to our north is suffering from the negative publicity.
As of Sunday morning, according to this chart, relative “humility” was higher than 90 percent.
