Since the December massacre I don’t think a week has passed where I have not receive some sort of contact from a county employee about the lack of security in their building. What employees are telling me is that all the BOS and CEO Greg Devereaux is giving thme is lip service.
Some of the messages I have received have been simple while others have been detailed. The most recent came from an employee in a building I was in a few weeks ago.
I wandered around that building at will. There was no security in sight. I remember thinking to myself that the employees were sitting ducks. The counter was only a few feet high and anyone could jump it and start spraying bullets. It was a large open office. They could kill many employees before help would arrive.
I have not responded to most of the contacts I have received. I’m not ignoring you. I just don’t know how to help you.
If I write a story, the only thing the county is going to do is to try to find my sources and discipline them, which does nothing to help.
If my sources are correct, little is being done to impede workplace violence issues. It seems to be business as usual.
