Idaho Rep. Judy Boyle, (R-Midvale) was preparing a rally to support all law enforcement officers when word came that two Adams County deputies would not face charges for killing Council rancher Jack Yantis on Nov. 1.
Boyle said the rally, scheduled to take place Saturday morning on the Capitol steps, was postponed “out of respect for the Yantis family.”
“Otherwise it would just look like a poke in their eye,” she said Friday. “That’s the last thing these poor people need.”
The "Support Your Local Police" event is postponed indefinitely.
