    LOL! DITTO!

    I seem to have a nack for getting responses like this on this forum.

    I respect his opinions, and hopefully he respects mine also. However, I feel quite stongly about the Sheriff and the Chief elections and appointments specifically and I understand where he is coming from on most of the rest of what he said, a little off topic, and to the extreme but he clearly made his point!

    Respectfully,

        Sure Steve:

        We the People, by our authority as such, created the Office of Sheriff, and elected the current Sheriff, and we didn't require that he wear a uniform, and we didn't require him to have prior LE experience, and we gave him arrest authority in the County, and authority over the Sheriff's Police and other Deputies, along with the responsibilities we gave him.

        Regards,

        Monty

          Oh and let's not forget that the Sheriff is elected to hold and wield the posse comitatus. Not only can arrest people; he can make any 18-year-old or older able-bodied guy in in the County help him do it, too. We the people gave him that authority when we elected him, and when the Governor we elected commissioned him, and when the Legislature we elected provided accordingly.
