This is just ridiculous - ellyessa has helped the community of Tahoe, more than any police officer in the area. She is loved by the community very much, and the marijuana she was carrying was actually mine. And she should face 0 charges and no criminal punishment at all. Ellyessa took the knife from another gal, who was scared of the older man as well. Shame on you placer county, this is nonsense.
