In response to "Hold sheriff accountable now" (Feb. 12, Letters): As a construction worker, I found that the foreman holds his workers responsible for their quality of work, the boss holds the foreman for the quality of the job, the owner holds the construction quality to the owner of the construction company. All in some way are held responsible.
If mistakes are made, is it responsible to remove them all? Of course not. The responsible thing to do is fix the problem. Our sheriff is the perfect person to do this. He is the one who knows what happened in the situation with James Ferrario. My bet is that he has addressed the problem and will make sure it won't happen again. He has great responsibility because his line of work may result in death for anyone in the department.
I believe with the cuts in funds and officers in the field, he has done a great job. If you want to blame everyone, let's not forget our representatives, senators and even the president. Don't forget yourself for complaining about a job someone else has to do.
