Sounds good, but I have a question:

If you’re deputized and things go badly South, will the legal system stand behind you as a deputy, or single you out and turn on you? It’s not as if you have a police union at your back, for better or worse.

Fortunately patriots ignored such irrelevant & pussified considerations when they gathered at the Concord bridge...

It is becoming eminently clear that another "Bastogne" action today would end up in surrender...

“If you’re deputized and things go badly South, will the legal system stand behind you as a deputy, or single you out and turn on you? It’s not as if you have a police union at your back, for better or worse.”

Anyone so deputized must be very cautious in using force - just as a regular law enforcement officer. You must be absolutely sure you are in the right and have not created the need for deadly force in the first place.

Even if the state prosecutor in your jurisdiction does not file charges over your use of force, it doesn’t mean the governor under national pressure won’t appoint a special prosecutor - or that federal officials now or years later will not file federal hate crime charges.

All that said, when a sheriff makes such a proclamation, local thugs must wonder if they want to test the community’s resolve.

When thugs hesitate, that’s a good thing.

Easy answer. The constitutional sheriff has the legal and armed muscle to protect the community. What makes you think that a leftist prosecutor will survive in a county run by a constitutional sheriff?
