Related: Restraining Order Filed on Candidate's Son (Contributed Editorial Opinion: Our local District Attorney may have been afraid of the case, though law enforcement handcuffed, arrested, charged and tried an "unconnected" citizen for much more innocent activity. This case involved many politicians and was not pursued at all by law enforcement or the District Attorney. Our law enforcement sources agree that this appeared to warrant law enforcement in their opinion, and Judge Green agreed, in his statement in court, that it was an obvious threat. In spite of this, the case has been dropped and members of the BOCC make jokes about a woman being threatened with physical abuse and serious harm. "More evidence of how Park County operates and only certain people get justice," per a victims' advocate consulted.)
