    UPDATE: Saudino has apologized for the remarks but did not resign Gov. Phil Murphy said Thursday that Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino should immediately resign if, in fact, he was caught on tape making racist remarks about African-Americans and New Jersey's Sikh attorney general. According to a report from WNYC, which said the station was provided with the recording, Saudino is heard talking to colleagues on the day Murphy was inaugurated. Saudino, recounting the details of Murphy's Jan. 16 inaugural address, said: "He talked about the whole thing, the marijuana, sanctuary state ... better criminal justice reform. Christ almighty, in...

  • Alabama Moves to Limit Sheriffs From Pocketing Jail Food Money

    The New York Times ^ | 11 July 2018 | Alan Blinder
    Alabama’s governor has begun to cut off a gravy train for the state’s sheriffs: the unspent money for prisoners’ meals that the sheriffs have long been allowed to keep for themselves. The practice, born of a bickered-over ambiguity in a state law, has let sheriffs pocket tax dollars that over the decades almost certainly ran into the millions. To curtail the practice, Gov. Kay Ivey ordered in a memorandum to the state comptroller that payments of certain funds related to jail food “no longer be made to the sheriffs personally.” Instead, the governor wrote, the money must be paid to...

    CALVERT COUNTY, Md. (ABC7) — Often times we see police body camera footage after someone has died in an officer involved shooting, but rarely do we see body camera footage showing what happens when officers encounter a dangerous situation and no one is injured. On Friday, the Calvert County Sheriff's Office released a video that does just that. The video was from June 18 and was posted to their Facebook page. It shows a deputy pulling over a man for a traffic violation who steps out of his vehicle with his hands behind his back. It turns out he had...

With no other candidates seeking the job, the GOP winner would become the sheriff for a four-year term. Maggs defeated Gramkow by a margin of almost 3 to 1.

    The once Golden State of California has now restricted local law enforcement agencies to work with Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) regarding released criminal illegal aliens. This is contrary to Federal law and its Constitutional jurisdiction. Sanctuary Cities, and now a State, are subjecting our American citizens to further crimes by these repeat offenders. As of January 1, 2018, California law (SB-54) limits all LE agencies in all municipalities to not contact ICE directly when the above criminals are released. There is now a backlash, and it's building. The city of Los Alamitos, the Orange County Council, along with the Sheriff...

    Full Title: Obscure pre-WWII law allowed Alabama sheriff Todd Entrekin to LEGALLY pocket at least $750,000 in taxpayer funds GADSDEN, Ala. — An Alabama sheriff legally used more than $750,000 of funds meant to feed inmates to purchase a beach house. Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin told The Birmingham News he follows a state law passed before World War II that allows sheriffs to keep “excess” inmate-feeding funds for themselves. Entrekin reported on state ethics forms that he made “more than $250,000” each of the past three years through the funds. The sheriff’s annual salary is more than $93,000. He...

    Miami Herald ^ | March 03, 2018 | MIAMI HERALD EDITORIAL BOARD
    [Full headline:] "If Sheriff Israel is the “amazing” leader he says he is, he will release videos of his deputies’ actions during Parkland shooting" It’s imperative that Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel release video recordings of what his deputies did, and didn’t do, outside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School while Nikolas Cruz was on a killing spree inside. First, Israel himself has said that the public needs to know this information. He’s right, and he should accommodate the people on whose behalf he and his deputies work. This is an extraordinary case in which his department bears a large share...

    A video has surfaced of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel attending a meeting of Muslims, where both Israel and one of his deputies spoke in Arabic. The deputy said that Israel pledged to keep young people out of jail and to put “God first, your family second and the community third.” Israel credits his deputy Nezar Hamze as a likeminded individual who is on the same mission as Israel. Israel compares himself and Hamze to lions on a mission. Both Israel and Namze boast that they keep young people out of jail, rather than put them in. “I want you...

    The big question now is: When are Sheriff Scott Israel and his deputy Nezar Hamze going to be asked to turn their badges in? Not let out in the mainstream media’s “official narrative” on the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting is that the Broward County Sheriff’s Department had been spending resources on firearms training at radical area mosques with attendees being taught how to protect themselves. The progressive left’s Second Amendment slogan should be: ‘Guns: Safe in the hands of jihadists, but not in the hands of American citizens’.

    Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said members of the Broward County Sheriff’s Department were not honest about why more deputies reportedly failed to enter the building and engage with the shooter at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Bondi said, “I know a lot more than you all do now, so all I’m going to say is, yes, I believe there needs to be a full investigation. I don’t think some people were honest and we’re going to investigate this situation in Florida, and the right thing will be done.” Steve Doocy asked,...

    When some major police incident occurs, it is most often my practice to withhold comment until I can be sure that most of the facts surrounding it have been revealed. A horrific event like a school shooting like that which occurred in Parkland, Fla., arouses the impulse to weigh in with opinions based on incomplete or even false information. It is best to resist this impulse. Others, of course, with endless hours of air time to fill, and with agendas to push along, are unable to resist it. There may be more egregious examples of this, but I don’t see...

    Embattled Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel told a local NBC station on Sunday that the failure of his resource officer, who was armed and on site during the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is "not my responsibility." [Snip] "Leaders are responsible for the agency, but leaders are not responsible for a person," Israel told the station. "I gave him a gun. I gave him a badge. I gave him the training. If he didn’t have the heart to go in, that’s not my responsibility."

    It is impossible to imagine circumstances under which Broward County sheriff Scott Israel could attempt to perform his duties with the confidence of the public. He should resign immediately, and if, as he promises, he refuses to go quietly, then he should be shown the door by the people he professes to serve. The numbers tell the story: 23 sheriff’s calls involving the Parkland shooter; 18 sheriff’s calls involving the shooter’s behavior directly (some of the others were principally about his brother); four sheriff’s deputies, armed and trained, cowering outside the high school while the killer within carried out his...
