EDITOR:

A better place would be if the Sheriff would strip the arrest powers of the Placerville Police Department.

    I agree with the Tap on this one, but remember Steve, this is all in a County that has been Stripped of its Grand Jury!

    Mr. Tapson, a quicker fix would to be get rid of that masculine LT. at PPD. I think her name is Broom Hilda.

    Mr. Tapson Maybe the PD should do their job and finally arrest you for driving under the influence. Your daily trips to Durangos and other down town bars and then you hop in your car and drive to the court house. Maybe that's why your a good defense attorney. You know how to get away with it as well.

    Seems a little presumptive for the acting chief ^^^^^ to say such things and assume Mr. Tapson is driving drunk. I believe the PD has tried to stop him before but lacked any evidence of a DUI...Maybe just go back to faking injury and stay out of the public eye.

    Anyone else find it a little odd this was removed from the main page?

    See this You Tube video and the others from the same person to see why Mr. Tapson may feel this way. The Placerville Police Department has some serious issues very remarkably similar to this string of video's. http://youtu.be/cC9gOb17U88
