Thank you Eamon for reminding us what this really should be about. Someone died, and you would think in this small community we would see more comments about that. Nobody deserves to die that way. And say what you want about the justice system but don’t forget that there is… Read more »

I’d like to weigh in on this “suspicion” debate. In the United States of America, you are suspected of committing a crime until you go to trial, at which point you did, or did not commit said crime. A media outlet can’t go mucking about calling people guilty until they… Read more »

See Bishop Police Chief Carter’s release on a fraud suspect.

Tried and convicted by law enforcement, cops playing Judge, jury, and Executioner? What about innocent until proven guilty? I guess that would save the state and county a lot of money, we don’t need courts, lawyers, DA’s or Judges because we have Inyo County Sheriffs! Or is Brian P a… Read more »

Mr. Deja-
Are you the local gossip? Why do you feel it necessary to using this site to promote rumors and speculation? I think I am “speaking” for others as well when I state that you provide very little useful input on this site on this and other various topics.

Yes he would, the district attornys in inyo county are the closest thing to nazis i have seen in california.
No other county in california has the per capita conviction rate of inyo.
This county is overdue for a federal investigation.
biginning with the harvey whitewash.

hey tim, I think you’re confused with being charged with a crime….he will ultimately be charged with homicide, not suspicion of…but for now, he was arrested for suspicion of homicide and the news should be careful what they print about someone.

Can you remove the word “suspicion” from what Mr Dewey was arrested for? If he was arrested the police have probable cause, which is well beyond suspicion. There is no “suspicion” in the penal code.
