I Read The Sentence Four Times, And It Still Says The Sheriff Is the Coroner

No wonder the coroner’s report on David Sal Silva’s murder completely exonerates the sheriff’s deputies who beat him to death: Kern County’s coroner is none other than the deputies’ boss and tireless defender, Sheriff Donny Youngblood.

Yeah, my jaw dropped, too. As the Bakersfield Californian ironically puts it, “Some have long worried that combining the sheriff’s department with the coroner’s office could lead to, at the very least, the appearance that the two entities are working hand in glove.” No, really?

Tell me again why any rational person gives the murderers, thieves, and sociopaths in office even a featherweight of credibility or respect. Why haven’t we long ago rounded up all official predators and run them out of the country on a rail?
