Subject: homeless and freezing weather
Dear Chief Nielsen,
Again I must complain about the work that [Murl] Harpham and Sanchez do out in the bush. Sanchez wielding a machete around homeless people who's only "crime" is poverty and Harpham with his ridiculous "holier than thou" attitude do nothing to bring real safety or respect to this community.

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..
