Last Friday, deputies came across a family from Florida who were stranded in Colfax. The Earp family spent four days on a Greyhound bus coming to California for a job offer in Sacramento. The job didn't materialize as promised. Deputies realized how desperate their situation was and decided to help. The deputies provided a ride for the family to Auburn and pooled their money to buy the family food and diapers. The Placer County Homeless Shelter purchased them a room for the night at the Auburn Holiday Inn, which was provided at a discounted rate. The following morning, Deputies Laughlin, Shemenski, Cooper and Sgt. Doolittle followed-up with the family and gave them a ride to the Amtrak Station in Auburn. Amtrak provided the family free rides to Sacramento. Thank you to all the organizations who were able to help the Earp family. We are very proud of our employees for going above and beyond and helping a family in need.

Beverly BrownYou have got to be effing kidding me. Seriously boys, go eat and play video games in your cars. Don't stop anyone and don't respond to any calls. Give people the community they want and see how that goes for 48 hours. This is bullsh*t. Unfreakingbelievable.
Joan B BrowneWhat kind of idiotic insanity is this?! If that's all that's going to come out of our police departments, why even have them?! Then all of us will have to defend ourselves and we'll have armed camps at each and every home on each and every block of the nation! The enemies of the People of the United States are winning and we need to stand up and push back! SoCal, go form your own state and we'll have a wall at the border!

Joseph FioricaThis is what happens when local governments with weak leadership cave to pressure from special interest groups that have a political agenda and know nothing about public safety. We might as well resort to being vigilantes and allow anarchy to reign if our law enforcement officers are not going to be allowed to provide for our and their safety.

Debi K BaughmanWasn't there another one not long ago, I think San Francisco, where the commissioner was calling for them all to use second thought before responding? I see this attitude all the time; guess who they root for? The perps. Poor baby, we got to take more time to teach them, so, hey we loose a few good men and women and children while we train the perps to (hopefully) be good, but gotta give some compassion or we ain't human. Well, and soon they'll all be perps and where is the compassion? Non existent.
This lay low and run or take the blows has got to stop. It's worse than throwing tomatoes at our soldiers as they come home.
