bc notes a kerfufel over the nocking down and handcuffing of an 80 year old grandmother of a suspected gang member in a nearby community. The sheriff countered, when LULAC complained about excessive force, with they were more interested in coddling criminals than deterring crime. Fortunately, the Local paper in a long editorial praised LULAC and the ACLU (also involved) and blasted the sheriff.
