The El Dorado County Sheriff says hes not happy with the U.S. Forest Service, so hes stripping them of their authority by keeping them from enforcing state law within the county.
Sheriff John DAgostini is taking the unusual step of pulling the police powers from the federal agency because he says he has received numerous, numerous complaints.
In a letter obtained by CBS13, the sheriff informs the federal agency that its officers will no longer be able to enforce California state law anywhere in his county.
I take the service that we provide to the citizens of El Dorado County and the visitors to El Dorado County very seriously, and the style and manner of service we provide, DAgostini said. The U.S. Forest Service, after many attempts and given many opportunities, has failed to meet that standard.

Give that man a ceeegar!
Must be a California nuance allowing traffic law enforcement powers to be granted on a county by county basis by the Sheriff.
The Sheriff is the highest law enforcement authority. They supercede the Feds, AFAIK.

We will now aee a showdown with DHS Waffen SS. This ain’t time for popcorn.....it’s push coming to shove.
Guess the growers got sick of being messed with.
Too bad the feds will ask Kamilla to remove him.
Comments at the site are about 99% with the sheriff.
Most of ED Co. is National Forrest.
Sheriff Gil Gilbertson of Josephine County, OR had the same problems with the USFS not so long ago and the two counties are not far apart as the crow flies.
Good to see some sheriff's standing up for states rights.
Two or three more of these an' we might just see a warrant for the arrest of the criminals in the white house .... and beyond.
Every conservative in America needs to get off their mammon-worshiping, lazy, fat ass and elect a Constitutional, pro-2nd amendment sherff in their counties. If you care more about money than your children’s future, you deserve every obuma misery delivered on you.
“why would the feds be enforcing state law?”
Any sheriff in the country can “delegate” law enforcement duties to those he “deputizes.” My guess is that these a$$holes overstepped their agreed to duties and were harassing citizens. I’d like to see more of it. BTW, more than half of the sheriffs in CA support the 2A. The bad actors are the “perfumed princes” in LA, SD, SF and a few other places. You know where all the crimes are committed and they won’t issue you a CCW permit. The rural counties in this state generally will issue you a CCW.
In always figgured you for a Confederate. ;-)
Nice to see the Sheriffs pushing back
The feds are grabbing our 10th Amendment and other rights as fast as they can get away with it.
“We will now aee a showdown with DHS Waffen SS.
There will be no confrontation. The DHS are stupid, 30 IQ slobs who will run at the first hint of a confrontation.
How does sergeant dave know that?
sergeant dave knows that because he communicates with these fat slobs.
If you’re scared of fat ameba blobs squished behind a desk, that’s your problem.
The NFS was charging people to go up the Mt Evans road. Turns out it is Denver property and that had to stop.
I bet THAT felt good!
