When will the government give closure to the Jack Yantis family? Maybe I have missed it, if so I apologize. However, the amount of time it has taken to investigate this officer-involved shooting is absurd. Four people directly involved, three still alive, eyewitnesses, and the possibility of video footage, and months later no conclusion? As a 33-year veteran of law enforcement, 12 of which as an investigator, if I had taken this amount of time on a “fresh” shooting, the sheriff would have replaced me. Granted, I have taken months to investigate a death; however, it usually involved a skeleton lying in the desert after being located by the dogs of sheepherders. However, in this case it appears someone or some entity is attempting to pull the wool over the family’s eyes. Let’s cut the baloney and provide a conclusion for the family’s sake.
