... "Sgt. Corrigan’s family and friends were desperate to find him, but they were unable to do so because city bureaucrats had not entered his correct name or birth date into the system. ... Sgt. Corrigan protested, saying no one would be able to find him with the wrong name on his records, but he was assured that he could be found with his prison identification number. Not so, as this jail ID was associated with the wrong name and birth date."

"Ms. Lal said she was turned away from the prison four times as she frantically attempted to find him. 'I think this kind of thing would happen in India,' she said of the country of her birth. 'But not in a billion years would I think this would happen in the United States of America.'" ...

"One of the drills we often do at the range is to put up targets with colored or numbered sections and have one person call out a random target and everyone will draw and shoot that target. It's a great way to practice, but hard to do by yourself. That's where the Combat Focus Shooting iPhone app comes in. I tried this app recently and found it gives me another option for range practice." ...

"Getting to Burlington, WY, Gunwerks HQ, is no easy task. I thought I was somewhat remote in Cody, WY, but 37 miles to the East; it gets a little more desolate. And I think that’s the way Aaron Davidson likes it. Before class kicked off, my class of 10 talked with him about how remote things are in Burlington. Aaron grew up here, his family is here, and this is what he knows. He told us that recruiting talent is hard, but that means that only the most committed make up the workforce of seventeen. A quick bit of trivia, Gunwerks is the largest private sector employer in Burlington. They would be the largest employer if it weren’t for that pesky school a quarter of a mile down the road . . ." ...

Neighbors in the small town of Shiner have rallied behind the father — a rancher who'd hired the suspected molester to help groom his horses — saying he did what any parent would to protect his child.

... "What’s clear from those is, the ability of this family to defend themselves—both in terms of seized assets meaning they have no resources, and court-ordered separate legal representation making a unified legal strategy expensive and difficult—has been tremendously complicated by the government. What’s also clear is they are being prosecuted by the same branch of government that won’t comply with subpoenas when its own role in allowing guns to fall into cartel hands is scrutinized. But because the government employees enjoy virtually unlimited resources along with administration and media support, none of them have been financially destroyed and are sitting behind bars waiting to hear their fate." ...
