Before you try to pick up the needle, no, this isn’t a broken record.
Over the past few months, this newspaper has commented with some regularity on actions of the Rio Arriba County Sheriff’s Office. And here we go again.
The latest allegation, brought forth in a formal tort claim notice by the ACLU, is that the sheriff’s office has been retaliating against a newspaper reporter.
The Rio Grande Sun’s Tabitha Clay is said to have drawn the ire of the sheriff’s office for, among other things, breaking the story about a deputy using a Taser to take down a 15-year-old special needs student at Española Valley High in May.
