Oregon State Police

Oregon State Police Trooper David Wertz was 10 miles east of Newport on April 28 at approximately 8:49 p.m. when he stopped a wanted felon but let him go after pandemic-leery jailers refused to lock him up.

“I was patrolling US 20 in the area of mile post 10 when I stopped a white Chevy Camaro, eastbound at a high rate of speed,” reported the trooper. “The driver was identified and determined to be the subject of an active felony, no-bail warrant issued by the Oregon State Parole Board; a parole violation on the original charge of Burglary I. Both Lincoln County Jail and Benton County Jail refused to lodge the suspect because of current COVID-19 restrictions policies.”

The suspect, Erin M. Swinford, 37 of Toledo, was issued a speeding ticket and released.

  1. I think it is time for……… vig·i·lan·te
    /ˌvijəˈlan(t)ē/
    noun: vigilante; plural noun: vigilantes
    a member of a self-appointed group of citizens who undertake law enforcement in their community without legal authority, typically because the legal agencies are thought to be inadequate.

  2. OK, let’s wait until he actually hurts someone before we lock the career criminal up. After all, he is just a non-violent drug offender seeking his high. He is the victim here, according to Kate Brown. Her friends in the failed “drug treatment” industry must be getting rich off this stupid mindset. Some of these “rehabs” have a relapse rate of 90%.

  3. There comes a time when the fear overcomes safety and liberty. Can you imagine what an enticement this is to other Criminals?

  4. Already heard the “vigilante” word raised.
    It doesn’t appear those actively ENFORCING the law are slacking –
    The JAILERS should be fired for not doing their jobs – This could be extended to pressing charges of “Aiding and Abetting” by allowing known felons to continue with their unlawful acts. We might add “Reckless Endangerment” to any innocent civilian that may come into contact with said felons. And if the felon is in a bad mood . . .
    We can charge him with murder and the jailers with “Negligent Homicide!”.
    If there is a way to get this to the voters and current leaders – it might be helpful. Leaders can get their anal/cranial problems fixed and get us back into proper operation – OR – Voters can make sure they don’t have jobs (like they are doing to us now)!

  5. Those are a dime a dozen every day throughout America. A PV on a burg 1 is not a dam thing you Wanker of a Beasley reporter. Done everyday year after year well before any pandemic! Trying to fan the flames for Red Hat fans? Sensationalize a report? Stop padding and instigating the comment section with fake names and provocative comments. Do you really think people are stupid?

  6. Wtf….our state troopers do their job to keep our citizens safe and the courts and jails decide they are the judge.God help them if they ever need assistance because I am about to fill out my voters ballot.Your all out of there if my vote counts for anything……Thank you to the Trooper for trying to keep us safe.

  7. Rick M hit the nail on the head. And yes, unfortunately a few intellectually challenged individuals took the bait. Same names you would expect if you look at the comment sections regularly.

  8. Where I grew up, guys like this would fly head first out a third story window “trying to escape” or tumble head first down a long concrete staircase “trying to escape”. Or they would choke to death in the back of a Los Angeles Sheriffs patrol car after “trying to swallow” an 8 ball bag of meth and it “accidentally” got stuck in his throat. Ahhh… the good ol’ days. Back before Rodney King and video cameras.
