What makes the United States Armed Forces the greatest government entity in the world and is the very reason why Idyllwild Fire should be dissolved?
[The answer is] objectivity and reproducibility or in this case a lack thereof.
It’s not about cost or who is employed. Can Idyllwild Fire objectively replace its three captains at will as effective representatives of the administration or community? No.
Hence the problem. Without question, they view themselves above the law — civil and, yes, criminal.
Their conduct repeatedly demonstrates this. It’s not about “Trunk or Treat,” the benevolence of their or our hearts, or the fact that they will defend Idyllwild with their lives.
As such, the EMS and fire mechanisms designed to protect us mean little within their eyes. Our safety and property is at stake.
That is why I believe this department should be dissolved, now.
