There was a Tulare county sheriff standing there while the blast was going on so I went outside to speak with them to let them know if they felt the shape of the blast he assured me that everything was fine so I let him know no it wasn’t funny and his smart remark was well if you have a problem getting an attorney not knowing that my children were inside and very afraid I thought it was very inappropriate for him to be speaking to me like that . While I was still standing there the man from the quarry we’re telling the sheriff deputy Cleves you s while I was still standing there the man from the quarry we’re telling the sheriff deputy Cleves You should of saw the last blast it destroyed a light pole and there was no electricity and they were all laughing thinking it was something funny what they did .
