Letter: bring back old deputies

On the day of Friday, Feb. 4, a friend of mine was pulled over by one Lyon County Sheriff’s Office deputy for a broken brake light. A few years back, my friend was pulled over by the same deputy for a DUI. Since then, he is trying to get his life together, going to AA and staying away from bars, but the deputy still harasses him.

A few years ago, he was transferred out of Silver Springs for harassing people, but they brought him back. Ever since, Silver Springs has become a training ground for LCSO rookies. This town has been going downhill.

If people call to protest against the sewer line, how come they’re not protesting against these rookies and their treatment of people. Bring back some of the old deputies who have respect for this town and its people.
