Local Sheriff uses Constitution – Shocking!

Theo Spark links to an interesting article that was somehow ignored excluded edited -out misplaced by the mainstream media.
A Sheriff from Wyoming enforcing his jurisdiction over federal officers, and being agreed with in so doing by the federal court!
The court confirms and asserts that “the duly elected sheriff of a county is the highest law enforcement official within a county and has law enforcement powers EXCEEDING that of any other state OR federal official.” And you thought the 10th Amendment was dead and buried — not in Wyoming, not yet.
Hopefully, not in ANY other States, either!
Go. Read.  Feel better about the pecking order.  Political Vel Craft

  1. This is, of course, true in every jurisdiction. Want proof? Submit a NFA request. The NFA says all requests for approval of silencers and full auto weapons must be approved by the chief law enforcement officer. Guess what? They go to the Sheriff.

  2. @Fill Yer Hands – Understood. I knew that, but personally hadn't made the Constitutional connection.Good Stuff. (Of course, our Sheriff here is both popular and hated, and is ex-DEA. So, some folks may not like this court decision!)
