In Humboldt County, tribe pushes for bigger law enforcement role on its lands

 


In calls to tribal police and Humboldt County sheriff's dispatch last March, Judy Surber cried, begged and threatened.

Her 29-year-old son had been shot in the chest and head in a small trailer on the remote Hoopa Valley reservation where he, his girlfriend and their 7-month-old son had stopped to give a friend a ride.

Roger Surber lay bleeding next to a 73-year-old man with an even graver head wound. Surber's girlfriend ran, clutching the baby, to find a phone.
