Only if they serve the leftist elite. The communists hold absolute power in this country and know that we are mostly too stupid and cowardly to stop them.

Scott knows that Charlie took about 1.5 million voters with him into the nether regions of the Florida Democrat machine ~ and he can’t win without showing some Fascist Vigor.

After reading the article, there are two possibilities:

(1) The Sherrif destroyed records to protect a “friend of his.” Unlikely but possible.

(2) The Sherrif abided his oath to uphold and defend the Constituion. And is being punished for it. Likely.

“Finch released the suspect from jail,”

“then altered or destroyed paperwork from the arrest. “

not so ok.

I just got wind of this. An odd story. Not good that Gov. Scott has gotten himself involved.

I have a feeling there is more to this story than is being told here.

The Sheriff is the top LEO in the county. However he is still subject to the law. Apparently he broke the law by destroying arrest records and I assume under those circumstances the Gov can have him charged with a crime and arrested by state police.

I hate to confuse the conversation with facts, but the Governor didn’t arrest anyone. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement got a warrant to arrest the Sheriff for official misconduct. That creates a vacancy the Governor has to fill.

That explains a lot. It explains why George Zimmerman is going to trial.

I believe the State Police / Highway Patrol are considered the Governors police agency.
They are accountable to him , only !

In Texas, a constable can arrest a sheriff. I know that because it was pointed out to me by a constable in a Texas county where I lived.

I voted for him against Sink, but after the George Zimmerman stunt, Iwill not vote for him again. I won’t vote for the Democrat, but I damn sure won’t vote for Scott.

Interesting. I'll hold out for more info before deciding who's wrong. Sum'n' strange gon' on in that part of Florida.

I don't remember which county, Liberty? Taylor maybe?, has something cronyism odd going on with the locals and landowners, horse breeders and should be avoided.

This problem with Crist is not universal ~ in some places you can dump the RINO with little penalty. In Florida Charlie had his own following and they are far from fickle people ~ they stuck with him.

Although Republicans are better off without Charlie they cannot win elections without finding some REPLACEMENT VOTERS.

Not so strange when we have a president suing an entire state. I really hope I wake up from this nightmare soon.

Sheriff arrested for defending the Second Amendment of the Constitution

Impossible, everyone knows LEOs are JBTs and immune from arrest. /s

The Federal Government can pick and choose which laws they will enforce, but this does not apply to a Sheriff. Figures.

If his reason was defending the Second Amendment then why did he feel the need to destroy all the documentation on the arrest? He could have just let the guy go and leave it at that.

All Scott did was appoint a replacement, he didn’t order the arrest. Check out the arrest warrant at the link.

The deputy that made the original arrest (SGT Hoagland) went whining to another officer (Inspector Tim McGraw) because the sheriff chose not to allow a bogus weapons charge.

Frankly, before all the hand-ringing starts, I think this is a GREAT place for our side to push back - hard. Not just calling the gov. This Sheriff needs $$ in his legal fund, and bodies at the court house when he appears.

“The only thing that allows evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing...”

I don’t recall who said it, but this would be a great time NOT to let evil succeed. Who’s on the ground there and what do we need to do?

I was thinking the same thing. Yikes, when did this guy go off the rails? I remember when I thought he was a conservative American, a breath of fresh air. Is he just another slimy coward like Charlie Crist, running scared from the Democrat newsrooms?
