Voice: Here may be a candidate for FBI director

June 26, 2001

In the wake of government raids gone amuck, i.e. Waco, Randy Weaver, etc., I believe someone needs to give credit where credit is due.

Sheriff Phil Jarvis of Idaho successfully ended the recent highly publicized siege in Sandpoint, Idaho, without anyone getting killed or injured. Sheriff Jarvis exercised patience and restraint when he talked the five armed McGuckin children into leaving their home with no bloodshed.

It's so refreshing to see a government siege with no casualties for a change.

Since President Bush is actively looking for someone to head up the FBI, why not consider Sheriff Jarvis?

The FBI might learn something from this valiant law enforcement officer. He's certainly worth considering putting on the Bush's short list for FBI director.
