SOS Meeting Notes – August 11, 2015

Good Evening SOS, our next meeting is August 25, 2015 at the Newman United Methodist Church located at 132 NE B Street, Grants Pass, OR, from 5:15 PM-6:15 PM.

Over the next several weeks, SOS shall be buckling down and doing a little house cleaning in preparation for some very important upcoming events.

As you know, there have been numerous homicides since May this year in our County and the signs of the crumbling criminal justice system are more and more apparent:

May 17, 2015            A man shot and killed his girlfriend and then himself in Grants Pass, Josephine County, OR

May 29, 2015            Officers shot and killed a man involved in domestic violence with his daughter, after he pointed a firearm at them in Wilderville, Josephine County, OR

June 15, 2015            A couple was randomly murdered by a stranger/transient in Colonial Valley, Josephine County, OR

July 1, 2015               Officers shot and killed fleeing CA murder suspect, who had just left his Mother’s residence in Wolf Creek at MP 72.3 on I-5 NB, Sunny Valley, Josephine County, OR

July 14, 2015             Resident shot and killed intruder in Grants Pass, Josephine County, OR

These are just the severe recent notables

We need solutions

We need your help!
