Officers across the country are paying with their lives for failed justice policies. In December of 2022, a Riverside County Sheriff Deputy was murdered by a lifelong felon with an extensive criminal history dating back to before 2000. This monster was only on the streets because the County Judge allowed him to be free on bail following his most recent conviction for a violent felony, which was his third strike.
On this episode of the Blue View Podcast, National FOP President Patrick Yoes sits down with Bill Young, President of the Riverside Sheriff’s Association (RSA). The RSA, which is one of the newest FOP lodges, represents over 3,500 law enforcement officers.
