Polk County Sheriff Warns Rioters: Don't Take This into Neighborhoods. People Own Guns Here.
George Floyd died at the hands of the Minneapolis Police. It was tragic, avoidable, and the use of force was totally absurd. He was arrested for the nonviolent crime of using false documents. He was handcuffed and subdued. Why did Officer Derek Chauvin put his knee on the back of his neck for nearly ten minutes? Floyd died as a result. He could be heard crying that he could no longer breathe. Chauvin was fired and brought up on third-degree murder and manslaughter charges. The three other officers involved in the incident were also fired. This incident should set off protests. Its outrageous what happened, but its now devolved into rioting, with lefty activists just causing mayhem. Its time to put down the mob.
Minneapolis has been set ablaze, and our own Julio Rosas documented the carnage. Hes covered tons of protests, but never say anything like what he experienced in Mill City. It was total anarchy. Yet, this chaos campaign has spread all over the country. There have been reports of rioters wanting to spread the chaos to the surrounding neighborhoods.
In Polk County, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd issued a stern warning to these troublemakers, noting that people in his jurisdiction like guns, own guns, and will be at home with their guns. And if these clowns try to burgle or set fire to houses, Sheriff Judd said, Im highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns (via Fox 13 Tampa Bay):

Townhall.com (@townhallcom) June 1, 2020 After protests turned to civil unrest in parts of Polk County Saturday and Sunday, the county issued a local state of emergency and a curfew Sunday and extended it to Monday at 8 p.m., until 5 a.m. Tuesday.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said there he does not believe Polk County residents were the ones creating problems.
He said theres a difference between a protester and a rioter and rioting will not be accepted.
Judd said there were rumblings on social media that rioters planned to bring violence into the neighborhoods of Polk County.
I would tell them, if you value your life, they probably shouldnt do that in Polk County. Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns, and theyre going to be in their homes tonight with their guns loaded, and if you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, Im highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns. So, leave the community alone, Judd said.
The sheriff encouraged anyone wishing to express their first amendment right to free speech to keep the focus on George Floyd, who Judd said was the victim who should be honored.
We need law and order back. President Trump has to put down this mob. And thats what this has devolved intoa mob. Protest all you want, folks, but when you start looting and setting buildings on fire, the game is over.
I just called his office to thank him. He is awesome
Found myself inspecting and lubricating my Personal Protection Equipment this weekend.
All up to factory specs and ready to go.
Private citizens have no standing orders. If they fear for their homes and families they will kill without hesitation.
Sounds like fair warning to me. If one of these feral creatures end up with the ground with non factory installed holes in them it’s on them.
Straight shooter, this sheriff.
I LOVE THIS MAN!
Polk County is immediately to the east of Tampa, which makes it vu!nerable to a contaigon effect from the rioting and looting in Tampa. There is also a pattern of criminals frim Tampa carrying out breakins and home invasions in isolated rural homes and settlements in Polk County.
Polk County, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd
I knew there was a good reason to own hi-cap mags. Glock has 33 round mags.
Just by coincidence since we have not been to our local range since everything got shutdown due the virus, now everything is pretty much opened up...I decided to clean all my personal protection devices, because we are headed there tomorrow to throw some lead down range,
these places need to be using this water cannons
Quite frankly, most will hesitate, at least for a moment, before firing a shot.
There is your very own personal invitation to hell you antifa terrorist thugs. Tired of living yet? Take your criminal acts to the rural areas, go ahead. Same in my neck of the woods here in SE Texas. Neighbors around here wouldn't want to see you but they will accommodate your violence with some of their very own as would I. I think we'd have you out gunned and out classed all the way. Lot's of hunters in my area who know how to field dress out their kill on the spot if necessary. So feeling a bit froggy? Then jump.
Antifa Soy Boy Brian Bartels, accompanied by mommy & daddy, just turned himself in to police for inciting violence during Saturday’s Pittsburgh RIOT and busting out the windows of a police car.
Learn how to hit the target and you dont need that capacity.
“I knew there was a good reason to own hi-cap mags. Glock has 33 round mags.”
My buddy has a couple of those - looks kinda weird sticking out of his Glock 19, but then again, THIRTY-THREE rounds.
