To begin with I believe The Press owes me a fresh bowl of cereal as I knocked mine over while laughing and reading the announcement of Adam Johnson running for sheriff of Kootenai County. According to the paper this is the same man who plugged two guys on Sherman Avenue sometime back and got away with it. He also pled guilty to felony possession of heroin last year. The story points out that Mr. Johnson is a failed businessman but remains as a board member of the Post Falls Chamber of Commerce. WOW! What a resume. Mr. Johnson admits that he has absolutely no law enforcement experience but is quite confident that his financial background would be of great benefit to the operation of the Sheriff’s Department. Oh did I mention that his business is closed?/Michael J. Murphy of Hayden, in letter to the Coeur d'Alene Press. More here. (Photo from Adam Johnson Facebook page)
Question: Should Adam Johnson be running for county sheriff, given his total lack of law enforcement background and his scrapes with the law in recent years?
