19117510-mmmainIdaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden reported today that there was insufficient evidence to file criminal charges against the two Adams County deputy sheriffs who shot and killed Council, Idaho, rancher Jack Yantis on November 1, 2015.

Here is a link to today’s Idaho Statesman story with more details.

Here is a link to all OpenCdA’s posts about the shooting.


  1. It is a sincere belief that Yantis committed suicide by cop.

  3. Sorry Bill, but I guess my getting feeble brain is on shooting overload and I jumped on the wrong one, thanks for the catch.

  4. Mike,

    It’s okay. The sad thing is there have been so many shootings, I’m afraid we’re all beginning to lose track of them.
