Idaho Attorney General: No Charges against Deputies Who Killed Jack Yantis

Liberty Fight

Very sad and disappointing news today out of Idaho- the Attorney General has announced that no charges will be filed against deputies Brian Wood and Cody Roland, who slaughtered 62-year-old rancher Jack Yantis outside of his ranch on November 1, 2015. The Adams County Sheriff’s department had called Jack at home and requested that he put down one of his bulls, which had been hit by a car. The deputies then pumped twelve bullets into Jack’s chest, stomach and heart in front of his nephew and wife, who immediately had a heart attack.  

Here is a 5-minute video of the Idaho Attorney General, from his press conference today, explaining his version of what happened that tragic night.

Below is the outrageous press release from the AG’s office. And also, the longer full one-hour video of the AG’s press conference.

Five chaotic minutes result in the shooting of Jack Yantis

Attorney General Completes Review of Officer Involved Shooting in Adams County

(Boise) – Attorney General Lawrence Wasden has completed his review of the officer involved shooting in Adams County and determined that no criminal charges will be filed against two sheriff deputies under investigation.

The review focused on the death of Jack Yantis, 62, of Council, who was fatally shot during a November 1, 2015 encounter with Adams County Sheriff Deputies Cody Roland and Brian Wood.

After reviewing more than 5,000 pages of reports, lab results, witness statements and other materials, Wasden said the evidence is insufficient to support a conviction beyond a reasonable doubt of the two deputies. Wasden said his decision is limited to the very narrow focus of a criminal prosecution.

“There is no other way to describe what happened that day as anything but tragic and unfortunate for the Yantis family and the entire community,” Attorney General Wasden said. “It is my hope that in the weeks and months ahead, the community can heal and rebuild trust.”

In conjunction with this announcement, Wasden is making public the investigative file compiled by the Idaho State Police and prosecutors in the Attorney General’s Criminal Division.

Wasden is also making public the decision letter sent Friday to the Adams County Prosecutor and attorneys for the Yantis family. The public can view the letter and investigative file on the Attorney General’s website.

“I also want to thank investigators at Idaho State Police as well as members of my staff for an investigation that was thorough and professional,” Wasden said.

For media, there are two documents attached to this press release, including a fact sheet and the decision letter.

The Attorney General will hold a media briefing Friday at 10:30 a.m. in his office. Please call 334-4119 for details.

  1. Once again the pigs investigate themselves and find no evidence of wrongdoing. Surprise!

    But remember, folks: there’s never any justification for violence against police officers. Obama said so. Even if they maim and murder us, it’s our job to respect their authority, so we need to sit there and take whatever they choose to dish out.

  2. “… was fatally shot during a November 1, 2015 encounter…”
    “There is no other way to describe what happened that day as anything but tragic and unfortunate…”

    UNFORTUNATE???

    There IS another way to describe it, jewb#tch… PREMEDITATED MURDER!!!

    “The Adams County Sheriff’s department had called Jack at home and requested that he put down one of his bulls, which had been hit by a car.”
    “The deputies then pumped twelve bullets into Jack’s chest, stomach and heart…”

    Like I said… PREMEDITATED MURDER, SCUMBAG!!! 😡

  3. Can’t believe the wi-fi is still working here.

    Jamboree weekend is murder on internet access.

  4. Murder by one of the governments enforcers is legal. If it is declared legal it is not immoral. There might be a small (98% against) chance to sue each deputy for wrongful death. The widow would have to sell the ranch to pay for the lawyers, so she loses twice. Maybe some one wanted Yantis dead. Maybe someone wants the ranch cheap..

  5. Attorney General Wasden: “It is my hope that in the weeks and months ahead, the community can heal and rebuild trust”. That should never be allowed to happen. Someone with some stones, should see to it,that this murder is kept in the public eye. Letters to the Editor, public spots on radio and television, the internet, yard signs, signs on the back of pick-up trucks. bumper stickers, specialty T-shirts, any and all, venues. Rebuild trust? Never happen dirt bag.

  6. So sad but we all knew this was going to happen right?!? I still had hope when I heard spence was going to be on the case but maybe he just wanted a chunk of the money. Too close to home, I drove up past there last month and it even seems dark and different over there. Can’t believe they are going to let these murders back on the road. I feel for all those in adams county and most importantly the Yantis family. I would have to agree that someone wants the ranch or these ex military/cops wanted trigger time and blood in our own country.
