Jamie Buenting

It is with great sadness that we have to comment on the untimely death of Officer Jamie Buenting of the Rockwell City PD. Officer Buenting was killed in the line of duty by a single shot while trying to serve a warrant on a local man who was alleged to have assaulted his mother.

Mi esposa, who works at the Academy states that she knew Jamie to be one of those genuinely good guys you don't meet too often, and so you remember them for their good qualities, good humor, and most of all kindness.

Officer Buenting leaves behind a wife and two young 'uns.

It's a dangerous job. Be safe out there.

Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord, and let Light Perpetual shine on them.

David Flores In The News. Again.

The Des Moines Register informs us this day that Iowa's favorite felon,  David Flores,  is once again back in the news. According to the police report, if true in all its particulars, it seems that after luring his former girlfriend to his pad, he beat, choked, and held her against her will overnight. Even discounting for police report hyperbole, this is disconcerting news. At this moment Flores has yet to be arrested-or found maybe.

This is Flores' third or fourth brush with the law since conning the credulous court of the retired Judge Don Nickerson into granting a new trial, which resulted in Flores taking a plea to avoid going back to da joint or risking it all at trial.

Flores' crew of handlers and groupies allege that this is but another example of police harassment, sort of sour grapes, and I do not doubt that he is being watched closely.

Time will tell. One never knows, do one?
