Locksmith lawsuit should be dropped, motions say

Dropping the locksmith lawsuit would protect the guilty.

One of the first questions, the court should deal with is whether or not the person who killed the locksmith and the deputy Sheriff committed suicide or was burned alive.

It’s time for Sheriff Adam Christianson to produce the autopsy report that led him to conclude that the man who killed the locksmith and the deputy Sheriff committed suicide.

Christianson assembled an army outside of this apartment with every intention of burning the house down.

One disturbed man whose mental condition was ignored could have been subdued by turning off the

water and electricity to the apartment and isolate the area.

Christianson wanted more than keeping the public safe and bringing a man to justice. He wanted revenge and was willing to murder at the risk of more law enforcement deaths.

But the sheriff's office had a long history with this man. They knew he wasn't mentally stable and they knew he had a stash of weapons. The deputy who took the locksmith with him was told three times that morning to be careful and he just laughed it off. When the locksmith stopped drilling and said he heard something in the house, the deputy told him to keep drilling. They should have stepped back at that point. They would both still be alive.
