She has no law enforcement experience, she's got experience in plenty of other things but no law enforcement experience or even law enforcment education or training. She may have served as a technical advisor but that's not serving as an active duty police officer on the street with other officers so why the fuck was she even considered for the job of sheriff or even appointed interim to the position? Oh, I see. Never mind.

Everything is illegal, everyone is a criminal, everyone is under surveillance 24/7, and no one cares.

Living in a police state means that you must live in dread of being arrested. You can't help feeling hopeless.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

The vast majority of modern LE organizations are in fact, paramilitary in nature. Consider their rank structures, taken directly from the Army. Consider the taxpayer-funded 'surplus' military hardware they employ. Last but not least, consider their mentality: that of occupying soldiers. They ARE civilians, but they certainly don't consider themselves as such and the law sure as hell doesn't treat them equally with non-LEO civilians (for better and for worse.)

There are historical and legal differences between sheriffs and police, of course, but the line grows hazier with each day in modern America. The government is supposed to exist to provide freedom and defend our liberty, but that is the polar opposite of reality. We've all heard the '5 felonies a day' saw, but it's sadly true.

Every single police department and sheriff's office in this country enforces unconstitutional laws - the War on Drugs, which eviscerated the Bill of Rights and was eventually followed by the War on Terror, which finished the job. 'Parallel Construction' and unconstitutional surveillance in direct contravention to the 4th Amendment are commonplace occurrences. The simple fact is, we live in a police state. We imprison more of our citizens than communist China! As things devolve, police and government agencies will only become more predatory. Prepare yourselves now! Like all Americans, government enforcers will soon have important choices to make.

Well said.

Resistance becomes a duty when you live in a police state.

Why is Assange in jail, but Clinton isn't?

Why did Snowden throw away his life to warn Americans about the dangers of tyranny?

How can officials and the Gestapo take an oath to defend the Constitution and then violate it everyday? Is a paycheck more important than freedom?
