Az Republic, you have hit a new low. Your attempt to politicize the tragic death of the Butwin family at the expense of Sheriff Babeu iis despicable.
Given the nature and location of the crime scene, an illegal drug smuggling gone wrong mission was not far fetched. By the accounts I read, and the nature of Babeu\’s comments, it didn\’t look to me like the Republic asked the probing quesitions and was content to run with whatever pablum Babau was will to spill forth.
I am not the only person who crossed pleasant paths with this family who is reeling from this. For the Republic to use this horrific event as a springboard to throw punches at an easy target is nauseating and mind boggling.
You will have to square with this one day. Good luck.
