As the saying goes, “along with tremendous power comes tremendous responsibility.” I cannot think of any person in public service who fits that saying more than a county sheriff. However, the major networks have spent many years brainwashing the populace into thinking that Federal Agents are the top cops.
How many times have you seen a cop show on TV where the Feds show up, flash their badge and relieve the local sheriff? Then, local sheriff storms off in frustration because the Feds took over the case. That, good people, is brainwashing.
What many people are unaware of is that your sheriff is the top law enforcement official in your county. He or She has jurisdiction, even over the Feds. There are many people, with whom I have spoken, who believe that the only chance that this country has is for good, honest sheriffs to stand up and assert their power. Perhaps not a silver bullet, but if every sheriff of every county found their constitutional spine, it would set the Feds plan of dominating the population back 25 years.
