    Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva called an egg-throwing attack this week on Black Republican recall candidate Larry Elder by a White woman wearing a gorilla mask a hate crime and blamed "woke privilege" for liberal silence on the issue. "QUESTION: How is this not a hate crime? ANSWER: Because "woke privilege" means a white woman can wear a gorilla mask and attack a black man without fear of being called a racist. Where is the outrage from our politicians?" Villanueva tweeted on Thursday. Villanueva said he plans to investigate the attack as a hate crime because the woman wore...

    Now that Dane County Sheriff Kalvin Barrett has proclaimed that jail inmates will be called “residents” from here on out, so as not to stigmatize and dehumanize them, we have a few humble renaming suggestions for him to consider. After all, why stop there? As Rep. Sheila Stubbs said, it’s “critical that we recognize people as decent people and as citizens.” Even people accused of heinous things like battery and sexual assault, apparently. And even those who aren’t, you know, actually citizens.

    Los Angeles County Sheriff Alejandro Villanueva thinks he can survive at the ballot box in 2022. But the local Democratic Party establishment that helped elect this law-and-order Democrat in 2018 has turned against him, suggesting an uphill battle. A series of events on June 8 captured his plight. The sheriff’s department spearheaded two major operations: a raid of more than 200 illegal marijuana farms in the remote high-desert north of the city described as the “largest illegal drug bust operation in the history of the department,” and a tour by Villanueva of the homeless encampments in Venice Beach to speak...

    The concerns come as the Bristol County Sheriff's Department says it has a new tool in the fight against COVID-19: specially trained K-9s that can sniff out traces of the coronavirus. Dogs have been used for years to look for drugs, chemicals and missing people. Using them as virus-hunters is relatively new. In fact -- no other police agency has tried it before. A 9-month-old dog named Duke enters a room at the Bristol County Sheriff's Department. Duke's handler leads him past a refrigerator where a fragment of a face mask worn by a COVID-19 patient has been hidden in...

    Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone is the most recent in a string of Arizona officials to complain about the county’s audit of the 2020 presidential election. The sheriff said that the State Senate’s demands for the audit of Maricopa County’s presidential election is “mind-numbingly reckless and irresponsible.” He said the law enforcement agency would be at risk if the county complied with the Republican majority senate’s demands for routers or digital copies of the routers. The Senate also wants passwords to the voting machines that county officials have claimed they do not have, AZ Central reported. “The Senate Republican Caucus’...

    Bernalillo County Sheriff Manuel Gonzales is gaining national attention for a video he posted on YouTube saying some politicians are turning “everyday citizens into villains for simply attempting to live their lives,” and his department will not enforce any orders that “subvert your constitutional rights.” The video was featured in a Fox News segment Tuesday morning, along with commentary from a former national public affairs director who applauded the sheriff and erroneously referred to the governor as “Michelle Lujan.” The courts have not found the state’s public health orders to be unconstitutional in any cases to date. The governor’s authority...

    Pennsylvania Sheriff James Custer said Monday that he’s done with the Democratic Party because of its “unconstitutional” lockdowns and “socialist agenda.”. “It’s the shift in ideals of the current Democrat Party at the national level — the socialist agenda — and this is something that I had been considering for several months. It probably started back when the pandemic started,” the Fayette County sheriff told “Fox & Friends” when asked why he was abandoning the Democrats for the Republicans. Custer also pointed to “the [lockdown] mandates coming down by the Democratic governors and of which we have one here in...

Reese shortly after tweeted that was false. “In tonight’s presidential debate the President said the ‘Portland Sheriff’ supports him," Reese said on Twitter. "As the Multnomah County Sheriff I have never supported Donald Trump and will never support him.”

DiMezzo first ran in 2018 as a libertarian against Rivera and longtime Republican candidate Earl Nelson, though she ran under her previous male name because she did not have her...
