MamaJD: Rocky Deserves Person of Year Mention

MamaJD: Not recommending for person of the year, but, I think Rocky Watson deserves some brownie points. He, at one time, was perceived as anti-FBI due to some statements he may have made at a County Bar Association luncheon. Some agents were cool to Rocky because of this. Rocky then got first hand experience dealing with the FBI and working together in solving the crime. Although Duncan showed up on his own accord for arrest, the inter-agency relationship that was established worked well for Kootenai County’s justice system. Rocky, it seems, has mended fences due to the Groene case. Rocky, in fact, was the keynote speaker for the Inland Northwest chapter of the Retired FBI Agent’s Society Christmas Party last Sunday. Way to go, Rocky, for working past issues for a common goal and sharing with the Feds. Too bad the Prosecutors office didn’t follow suit.

DFO: Your case for Rocky as person of the year would have been stronger last year, when Duncan happened. But I do give him kudos for handling his department’s illicit Internet problem better than the prosecutor’s office.
