Walkingstick says he plans to call in F.B.I in LaFontaine investigation

by Susie Apple­gate
    In spite of a sur­prise City Coun­cil vote against Coun­cil mem­ber Willie Walkingstick’s motion to call in the F.B.I. on the LaFontaine inves­ti­ga­tion, Walk­ing­stick says he plans to go over their heads.
    “Sher­iff Sweet is stonewalling this inves­ti­ga­tion,” says Walk­ing­stick, “and I am shocked that the rest of the Coun­cil can’t see it. But I have a right, as a pri­vate cit­i­zen, to request a civ­il rights inves­ti­ga­tion. I plan to do that.”
    Walk­ing­stick has long claimed that the sher­iff has been drag­ging his feet. Sher­iff Sweet had no com­ment, but fel­low Coun­cil mem­ber Ang­ie Arra­to­la said, “Willie’s heart is in the right place, but the Coun­cil does not feel that we can spare any­more resources on a fifty year old mur­der inves­ti­ga­tion.”
    May­or Kevin McCoy, how­ev­er, was not so kind. “Walk­ing­stick has a hair up his ass about Sher­iff Sweet. This is a ridicu­lous waste of time.”
    Walk­ing­stick wasn’t fazed by the crit­i­cism. “This case is about the very soul of Ger­maine. Is the may­or say­ing that sav­ing our soul is a waste of time? It’s time to jump in the creek, and wash our­selves clean of this thing.”
