Angered Residents Grill Sheriff on Why Deputies Gunned Down Idaho Rancher





Quote
Hundreds of residents packed a town hall meeting in Idaho yesterday asking tough questions of their county’s sheriff after two deputies fatally shot a local rancher.

Over 200 residents from the town of Council voiced concerns over the death of Jack Yantis, the rancher killed by deputies last week, with some leaving the assembly angry over the answers Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman gave.

Police had first claimed that Yantis, 62, engaged in a fire fight with Adams County Sheriffs deputies last Monday on US Route 95 after being summoned to deal with his injured and aggravated two-ton Angus bull.

But Yantis’ daughter, Sarah, says there was no such gun fight, and instead called the altercation a “senseless murder” that was the result of police needlessly escalating the situation.

Is the rumor true that police and sheriff's offices are being manned by foreigners? I know that the poor black man that was killed by the pseudo policeman was this situation

Not sure what you mean. The name "Yantis" is generally a German or Dutch name, although anyone can "adopt" a name.

Hadn't seen that rumor, that foreigners are involved. If they are, it stands to reason that don't know how the government in the States works.

My guess about what happened is, the cops were having fun shooting at a dying bull. The bull belonged to Yantis, who was there to put it out of its misery. The cops probably ordered Yantis to not kill the bull, because they wanted to have some more "target practice" fun. When Yantis didn't obey, one of the cops became confrontational by grabing Yantis' rifle. The rifle accidentally discharged, the second cop panicked and started shooting at Yantis, the first cop became mixed up and joined his buddy cop, and since he was at point blank range, simply did not miss when he shot at Yantis.
