It's an injustice that Stanislaus County is blaming Glendon Engert for his own demise. The poor guy was just an average Joe mobilized to help the Sheriff's Department get into a door.

He had a screwdriver; the officer had a gun and was "charged to serve and protect."

How are we ever going to get an average citizen to be of service to the county again?
