A while back, I posted a few entries from the Sheriff’s log I read from my weekly home-town Southeast Oregon Newspaper, “The Malheur Enterprise”. It is published in Malheur (translation: Bad Hour) County Seat town of Vale, Oregon.
This week, I felt these were worth your consideration:

9:19 p.m. April 3, Vale:
*Caller wants deputy to check an address for a sex offender out of UTAH who has not registered.
***(Now wait a minute. If he/she hasn’t registered, how have we confirmed the suspect IS a sex offender?)
