On her campaign Facebook wall, Democrat Tina Kunishige posts:

Why am I the better choice for Kootenai County Sheriff? I will end the practice of the Sheriff contracting with private corporations such as Walmart, Best Buy and the Stateline Speedway to provide private security. The Sheriff's deputies will respond to any calls at such locations but private security (which includes upholding their "policies") for private corporations will be left to the private sector. I have gone to the meetings regarding these private security contracts and even have those contracts in hand and feel this is not the duty nor proper role of the Sheriff's Office/deputies.

Question: Do you agree with Tina Kunishige on this issue?
