It's unlikely that an internationally recognized recently-arrested protesting elected sheriff would be assassinated.

It's also impossible to know the exact circumstances. We'll never know what could have happened.

Is a safe bet to assume that that prison will house prisoners shortly, and for years to come.

She should not have resigned.

As an elected official she cannot be fired.

it's a much stronger statement to get arrested for non-compliance of an illegal court order. Quitting may have made the local news.

Getting arrested as a US elected sheriff and going to jail for disobeying illegal court orders would make international headlines.

She's a sheriff. An elected official.

IIRC She cannot be fired by anyone; except by coroners in certain countys (for murder, etc.).

Sheriff's are unique elected positions in the US. Even a state's governor cannot give orders to a county sheriff. They are literally at the top tier of their command chain.

IMO we should assume someone is not, unless/until convicted.

However, some notable exceptions are if someone is caught in the act (like Sandusky), or an accused Catholic priest.

The fundamental challenge to landing is the inherent instability of landing any/every rocket.

Can you name a single rocket type aircraft that a human has ever landed on Earth; and walked away from? I'd like to see a video of this if you can find one.

Every person to ever take a flight in a rocket landed by some other means.
The rocket was abandoned at some point in flight, and the pilots parachuted down, etc. The pilots never landed using the thruster. Ever.

The obvious reason for this is landing a rocket propelled craft by controlled thruster descent was literally impossible, at the time.
