Calaveras Supervisor Oliveira says "deputies in danger"??

"I'm so scared,
Ollie! Save me!" 
   District 3 Supervisor of Calaveras County Michael Oliveira says that he feels his deputies are " in danger every time they put on a badge and gun".

   That is one of the most ludicrous statements we have ever heard.  We feel and many residents agree that WE, the public, feel in danger FROM Mr. Oliveira and his gun toting and he admits, booze drinking buddies at the Sheriff's department.

   We don't see anything DiBasilio can do to change this! NOTHING!
