A Del Norte County man who assaulted two sheriff's deputies [we can always count on the Times Standard to be the immediately decided judge and jury for an execution by cop] Tuesday morning died after he was shot with a Taser and began having trouble breathing, the Del Norte County Sheriff's Office reported.


Victory for Watchdog in Del Norte County, by Lenda Beck 2010

April 2, 2010
Howdy from Del Norte county,,,Just wanted to tell all the watchdog folks out there there we won the first of 25 + Lawsuits in Del Norte County yesterday. We went to the federal court in San Francisco and it was amazing. We are not done yet. We settled with the city  but not the county.  Claypool told their attorney he will go to court with this even if he forefeits his Attorney's fees ..The attorney for Del Norte had the Del Norte urd well versed. He was a very rude man..
 
Did very well in the monetary part and the best part is that policies are going to be changing because of this suit. The Del Norte Attorney for City stated [confirmed] this.
 
Monumental... Del Norte County lost all evidence concerning the Brian Strom Case. We should have taken this farther but with the economy the way it is, we did very well in sending a message that this must stop. We only setteled with the city, we still have the county to deal with..
 

Taser Evidence Mysteriously Lost- Lenda Beck's Letter to the Editor, March 2010

Below is a letter that I wrote to editor concerning the state of affairs with law enforcement. and replying to a letter. City and County did away with the taser evidence from when the cops tried to kill my son. There were three tasers deployed. They said one taser was broken, and my son had to pay for it to be repaired. Now all the evidence has disappeared. I filed and administrative law suit with in 6 months of the incident. His belongings that he was booked with  also disappeared. These items probably contained evidence of the brutality that happened that night.
