THE MAN BEHIND THE SHERIFF'S BADGE

Time and again on my radio program we have discussed how our nation is fast becoming a "police state." Almost daily we hear of some government agency kicking in doors at 2:00 AM., making arrests, even shooting the unsuspecting home owner who tries to protect himself with a legal weapon when a friendly knock at the door, at a decent hour of the day by a local sheriff serving a warrant would have been sufficient.

One such story last month involved the United States Department of Agriculture with the aid of Virginia police raiding a game farm at 5 a.m., handcuffing the owner and shooting his pigs. The authorities said there was a suspicion of Psuedorabies within the herd. Psuedorabies has been controlled for decades by State Departments of Veterinary Medicine by testing herds and paying indemnity for animals if depopulation is necessary.

Could a local sheriff have stopped this event from happening? Jim Schwiesow is a retired sheriff with 46 years of law enforcement service, including 28 years as the duly elected sheriff of Sioux County, Iowa. Sheriff Schwiesow explains that the sheriff is unique in the law endorsement arena in that he is the last and only law enforcement administrator that is elected to his office by the people.

The administrative heads of all other law endorsement entities are appointed to their positions by mayors, city councils, politicians or other managerial boards. The people have no voice in the selection of these law enforcers, and no recourse if they do not agree with their policies.

The sheriff is the only law enforcement official with the authority to summon the power of the county. The sheriff has the right, granted by Posse Comitatus, to assemble a militia or posse, and the power to deputize citizens and require them to assist in the keeping of the peace and the enforcement of laws.

"The sheriff represents the power of the people; he does not represent the power of the state." When it comes to keeping the peace no one's authority exceeds that of the sheriff. The sheriff of that county not only had the authority; he had the absolute obligation to intercede to protect the constitutional rights of the owner of this farm.

Note the above quote! "The sheriff represents the power of the people; he does not represent the power of the state." How can we live in a national police state if the sheriff knows his authority and carries out his job? This certainly does not fit well into a new form of global governance or even a North American Community.

We must do away with the office of the County Sheriff and allow the State Police, the BATF, CIA, IRS, USDA, FBI, BLM, Forest Service and dozens of other gun toting bureaucrats to control our lives, harass our people and eat out our substance. This new form of government must render the military independent of and superior to the civil power, and is taking place right before our very eyes.

In the year 2000, the state of Connecticut abolished County Sheriffs by Public Act 00-01. All civil-process-serving deputies were sworn in as judicial marshals. The Delaware Constitution states that the sheriff of each of the state's three counties is the 'conservator of the peace." The Delaware "CODE' does not include sheriffs in its definition of "law enforcement officer." Deputy Sheriffs handle only civil matters, serving writs, summonses and other legal process such as carrying out sheriff's sales.

The Sussex County Sheriff claimed that the Constitution made him the chief law enforcement office of the county, thereby empowering him and his deputies to patrol the county and make arrests.

The issue came to a head when the Sheriff placed flashing emergency lights and sirens on his department's vehicles, leading the State Department of Transportation to suspend the vehicles' registrations and threaten arrest of any deputy sheriff who was driving such a vehicle. The Sheriff unsuccessfully argued for broader powers and has also unsuccessfully lobbied the Sussex County Council for expanded powers.

While all Nebraska counties have sheriff's departments responsible for general law-enforcement, Nebraska State Troopers are sworn state deputy sheriffs and are authorized to perform police services in all of Nebraska's 93 counties.

New Hampshire is make up of 10 counties and there are 10 High Sheriffs that are the highest ranking and most powerful uniformed law enforcement officers in the state.

This past June, Councilman Tim Crawford of Summit County, Ohio introduced a charter change that would replace the sheriff's department with a county police force and the Summit County executive would "appoint" a chief of police.

While a few states and several counties have sold out to the globalists by eliminating the sheriff's office completely or by putting restraints on his duties, most counties across the nation do have sheriffs that have sworn to uphold the Constitution and do their best to Protect the People within their county.

We do however find some sheriffs that are either weak or do not understand the extent of their authority, who often join in questionable activities against those whom he represents.

If we are to maintain a government "of the people, by the people and for the people," we must continue to support our local sheriff. We need to elect a sheriff that knows his authority and be willing to perform his duties.
