In light of the Arizona shooting, Americans everywhere are asking the question of how do we balance free speech with giving law enforcement the tools they need to keep society safe?   Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton says that's a tough question to answer: “Those that act out frequently and those that don't know the difference between their emotions and hostility. What it is they are trying to convey. We try as best as we can to stay on top of that, pay as close attention to those people as we can. It’s nearly impossible to control and or affect that in a positive way and you just try to do the best you can.” Blanton says local law enforcement tries to learn as much as they can from shooting incidents. They do not plan on increasing visible security, but will try to do everything they can behind the scenes to keep everyone as safe as possible.
