Politics before the Law

redneck_sherrif_sketchHere’s a list of ‘lawmen’ that have decided to put politics ahead of the Law they swore to uphold.

I wonder how long till they find other laws they don’t ‘like’ and decide not to enforce based on some ludicrous twisting of the Constitution.

Their actions in this ‘lawsuit’ do not serve the safety of the citizens they are charged with protecting – thus a violation of their oaths of office.

Every last one of them should be removed from office immediately. Calling them ‘heroes’ is the most sublime nonsense imaginable. They’re nothing but petulant little children with guns – a threat to every citizen they have authority over.

Update – this article at ColoradoPols.com underlines how completely spurious this lawsuit is and why I predict it will fail.

    Note that sheriffs in Colorado are ELECTED. Big mistake? Well, appointments don’t seem to be working so well, either. If the system is broken, then what? No one wants anything the “other guy” wants. It’s a winner-take-all political environment, and compromise is a dirty word. It makes me wonder if each of these sheriffs would be perfectly content to face an assault rifle the next time he tries to boot an abandoned vehicle. Ah, but that shooter has his RIGHTS, doesn’t he? What you got, sheriff? A Glock 9mm? Good luck.

    You can add Grand County’s Rodney Johnson the list. 55 out of 64. 86%, if you’re keeping score.
