The State as Accomplice: Did Idaho’s “Justice” System Shield a Serial Murderer?:

Beware, Adams County: A “Sociopath” Will Soon Return to Duty:

To the family and friends of the man who had been gunned down without cause by two of his deputies, [Adams County Sheriff Ryan] Zollman recommended that they accept this betrayal with pious stoicism: “Leave this to a higher power watching over us.”
