    A Southwest Pennsylvania sheriff has defected to the Republican Party from the Democrats, saying he feels out of place in his former party. “It was a really difficult decision and I’ve thought long and hard about it, but I feel I stand for the ideals of the Republican Party platform more than the Democrats today,” Westmoreland County Sheriff James Albert stated, according to The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I’ve been a lifelong Democrat, but a conservative Democrat at that,” he added. “I’m pro-life, a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, a lifetime member of the NRA (National Rifle Association) and, today, I...

    Aria DiMezzo, a transgender, ‘Satanic anarchist’ has won the GOP nomination for sheriff in Cheshire County New Hampshire. Incredibly, Republican voters where she was elected paid so little attention to the unopposed candidate that they voted for her in spite of her “F*** the police!” slogan—a slogan that sounds more like something you’d hear at a Joe Biden – Kamala Harris rally.

    The sheriffs of Clackamas and Washington County in Oregon said they won't send staff to help with the nightly unrest in Portland after Gov.

Brown had asked the sheriffs and the Gresham Police Department to support the Portland Police Bureau with personnel and resources "to keep the peace and protect free speech." Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Roberts on Monday said the governor never approached him before unveiling her plan to mobilize local law enforcement agencies in the Portland protests, and that he has no plans to...

    BROWARD COUNTY, FL –Back on Valentine’s Day in 2018, a lone gunman (whose name will not be mentioned in this article) entered onto the property of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and opened fire with a long gun, killing 17 students and faculty and wounding others. At the time of the shooting, Scott Israel was the Sheriff of Broward County. He was later removed by the Governor for many reasons involving this shooting, number one because no one really investigated the shooter who had been reported to authorities many times prior to the shooting. Recently, Democrat Scott Israel is attempting...

    The Fraternal Order of Police voted unanimously on Tuesday not to endorse Orange County Sheriff John Mina in his re-election bid, following his decision to take a knee with Black Lives Matter protesters last month. A union survey showed that a majority of respondents complained about low morale and many believed Mina wouldn't back them up if they were involved in a use-of-force case that went public, according to Fox 35. One union member who was surveyed said, “You knelt with the same protesters/rioters who were hurling insults and bricks at us for your own political gain." Mina took a...

    A Michigan sheriff compared the governor's stay-at-home order to a mass arrest of the state's residents while speaking at a rally this week opposing the coronavirus restrictions. Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf told the gathering in Grand Rapids, Mich., that by definition the governor's measure was placing people of the state under arrest, according to “What’s the definition of an arrest? It’s basically taking away your free will, your right to move about,” Leaf said, adding that "an unlawful arrest is when you do it unlawfully." "So when you are ordered to your home, are you under arrest? Yeah,...

    Smithfield, N.C. — Johnston County Sheriff Steve Bizzell said his deputies won't "interfere or prevent churchgoers to peaceably assemble and exercise their constitutional right to freely worship." The North Carolina Sheriff's Association along with many other sheriffs departments are siding with those who want indoor services. Father Peter of Saint Ann Catholic Church said, "People are stressed and they need the churches. They need this encouragement." The state plan to resume business and social activities during the pandemic suggests that churches hold outdoor worship services or limit services to 10 people at an indoor service for now, but law enforcement...

She failed to stop a 77-year-old barber from opening up his shop in a bid to save his livelihood and family. The county sheriff announced that he would not use his manpower to shut down the business. Later, a judge also ruled in the barber’s favor. Now, that very same sheriff has just announced that he will not enforce Whitmer’s “lockdown orders” that have been extended until the end of May.
