New Mexico was swept with a gasp when Jai-Ho broke the news that well respected, nay loved Santa Fe Sheriff Greg Solano resigned because of behavior that cannot but be classified as outside of the law.

On the other side of the coin you can almost see the dusty settles around the silhouette of the defeated Sheriff, whose back story includes his meager beginnings, rise to the top of Capital City law enforcement, then the rue of human existence (money) and his fallible humanness (redundant) leading him to wield the weapon causing so many to fall – the internet.
