Glad they aprehended Tom Gunsalus. Numberous Napa residents who had dissassociated themselves from Tom because of his decompensating character were finding themselves harrassed to no end by local law enforcement entities who were in persuit of Toms whereabouts. It is unfortunate when officers with good intent use unprofessional and illigitimte tactics in an attemp to gain the cooperation of civillians. Honesty is always the best policy. Incresingly, folks misrepresent themselves or skew a situation to be other that what is true or real. Their drive is to benefit themselves, with no regard for destructive fallout. Louisa- Yet again, thank you for keeping your forum true and maintaining the best principls of fair press. You are indeed a local treaure. CandyCapone (A#1 Top Fan)
