Fort Dodge Jail

Fort Dodge Jail (Photo credit: Kevin H.)

Less than a week after I wrote this story, I was subpeonead by the Ford County DA to reveal the name of the confidential source mentioned. It was the beginning of a nightmare for both Sam Bonilla and myself. More to come on Electrica in the Desert.  NOTE: The photo above is of the old Fort Dodge Jail just outside of the Dodge City limits. It was constructed as part of the federal military campaign to subdue the Native peoples in Kansas after the Civil War. It’s not the jail in which Bonilla was incarcerated a few miles away, but I included it because, for me, it symbolizes an ongoing mentality that characterizes the forces that continue to operate in southwestern Kansas.
