Last week in this space, we encouraged authorities to seek an independent investigation into allegations against Las Vegas police Officer Martin Salazar.
Unbeknownst to us, District Attorney Richard Flores had already decided to do just that. We commend him for taking this step.
Earlier this year, three jailers at the San Miguel County Detention Center reported that Salazar had threatened to hurt a woman he had taken into custody, 52-year-old Bernadette Varela. Other jailers filed reports indicating that Varela alleged she had been injured by Salazar.
