    “Clearly you do not understand law enforcement. Public Safety personnel (Police) Do Not Make the Laws or interpret if they are constitutional or not. They simple ENFORCE laws passed by their jurisdiction. Problems with laws are with the legislature – not the police.”

    I wonder if you will say this same thing if their jurisdiction passes a law that requires them to round up all guns, even if it means breaking down your door without a warrant.

    I wonder if you will feel the same way if their jurisdiction requires them to round up all republicans, all democrats, all jews, all whites, all blacks, etc., ect.?

    What then?

    Don’t say it’s crazy and it will never happen. Because HISTORY has shown that it can happen, and it DOES happen.

    Clearly you do not understand what taking an oath means…

    One more thing. Our County recently elected a new sheriff. Why? Because a citizen stood up during a town hall meeting and explained how he was threatened with jail if he did not comply with violating his 5th amendment right. The answer the new sheriff gave basically elected him on the spot.

    The citizen is a truck driver. He was pulled over and told by a DOT compliance officer that he was going to do a DOT inspection on the truck. The officer told the truck driver that he had to turn on turn signals, flash lights, use wiper blades, etc.. The truck driver said he was not gong to incriminate himself and that he had no such requirement to do so. The officer told him that he was a truck driver and that he MUST do what he says because it’s the law. The truck driver said DOT laws do not trump the constitution to which the officer replied if you do not do as I say you will be going to jail for interfering. The truck driver said you are allowed to inspect my truck, I am not interfering nor will I stop you, but I do not have to assist you. The officer replied with removing his handcuffs and the Truck driver finally submitted.

    The New Sheriffs response? “If elected, you call me. I will drive to you and assist. As long as you are not interfering with him doing the inspection on your truck. I will arrest the officer if he at anytime he tries to arrest you for not waiving your 5th amendment rights.”

    To which the audience gave a standing ovation!

    I am not saying THEY are deciding which laws are Constitutional. You are taking what I said to the extreme.

    There are laws which are blatantly unconstitutional, such as the civil forfeiture act. Believe it or not, cops do have the discretion as to when they should enforce something to the fullest extent of the law.

    Ever get a warning on a speeding violation rather than an actual ticket? Same difference.

    A cop should understand what the constitution says. I venture to say a high number of them have never even read it. If at any-point they are asked to uphold something they feel is unconstitutional then they should be going to their supervisors or even the highest level of the department to discuss their grievances.

    Even if it never gets solved, then that officer should remove himself from a position which would require him to possibly enforce that law, even if it means quitting his job. HE TOOK AN OATH!

    They should not be blindly following orders. Because they are an authority who carries a badge and a gun. This requires the highest level of responsibility which includes the constitution which again, THEY TOOK AN OATH TO “UPHOLD” and DEFEND.

    What is so hard to understand about that?

    Just curious, but the way I read this was that the cop would not have taken him if the other county police would have taken him to jail for a misdemeanor warrant. While I do praise this officer for what he had done, I find that statement a little strange.

    My only beef with police is the fact that they take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, yet don’t follow through. When you make a pledge like that an officer should study that document and refuse to uphold any and all unconstitutional laws. Part of their training should include Constitutional classes.

    If police would quit trying to uphold all the unconstitutional laws I think they would gain back any and all trust they have lost with the public.

    The idea of the United States of America is that we are a free people. You can’t tell me that most laws are not unconstitutional, when the average person commits 3 felonies each day without knowing it. That does not sound like a free country to me.

    Because of this people look at police as the strong arm of the Government trying to oppress, rather than serve and protect.

    What this officer did is exactly what he is supposed to do. Look at the reward he received for serving and protecting rather than being a strong arm for the gov-ment. This is proof!

    I was almost going to agree with him, until he started in on the racism and america was never good to minorities. That’s when he lost me.

    “Tell me what does losing feels like? Have a little dignity!”

    I don’t know Fox, tell us. Since your country sucks so bad people are leaving it in droves!

    “He should go back to his doubtful business.”

    You shouldstay in your doubtful country!

  • [78] September 27, 2016 at 5:56pm

    WOW! I am not for Trump but Fox may have just convinced me to vote for him.

    To hell with Mexico.

    Why didn’t Trump point out the real reason for the housing crash? WHY, WHY WHY? He let Hillary walk all over him by saying it was trickle down economics that caused it. She then hammered it home by pointing out how Trump said he hopes it would fail so he could profit.

    YUGE opportunity missed by Trump.

  • [7] September 27, 2016 at 9:50am

    The biggest thing I noticed is how much Trump complained about being interrupted during the GOP debates. He would constantly say excuse me but it’s my turn, excuse me but wait your turn. When the other people would not shut up Trump would just shut his mouth and smile until the opponent was done, then Trump would pounce.

    This debate, not so much. It was opposite. Trump could not stop interrupting and Clinton just stood there and smiled. I think Trump was nervous. Clinton knew that and she just let him keep digging.

  • September 27, 2016 at 9:35am

    No he did not. He said that she helped push it. He said that they heard of the rumor so they went to Kenya to try and get some dirt. When they found none they dropped it. He then went on to say that he picked up the torch and “got things done” and made Obama show his birth certificate. He handled it very badly.

    He never once said that it all started with her campaign.

    Trump should pointed out how Hillary was the one who started the birther movement. Too bad he didn’t.

    It’s a negative story on Trump and Glenn just wants Hillary to win!

    One of the biggest cowards in the world is someone who gets mad at the world, and goes on a shooting spree. Killing innocent people all because of a temper-tantrum.

    Zorro, he endorsed Trump on his facebook page…https://www.facebook.com/tedcruzpage/posts/10154476728267464

    whisperer, you are part of the voter problem. You are a blind follower just like the trumpsters.

    Just because I do not agree with Cruz on this endorsement you have somehow in all your wisdom decided I am for Trump. You sound just like the Trumpsters who say if you dont agree with Trump then your for Hillary. Or, the Obama supporters who say you are a racist if you disagree with Obama.

    You could have at least put some thought behind your comment like insightful did. He at least added to the discussion.

    When a public official acts as a personal marionette to the donor, that is Bribery. What does Trump have to say about this?

    Well lets just see… ““I give to everybody. When they call, I give. You know what? When I need something from them, two years later, three years later, I call them, and they are there for me. . . . And that’s a broken system….When you give, they do whatever the hell you want them to do.” Donald Trump

    As far as your crony capitalism remark. Your trying to justify Trump doing it just because Clinton did it? Huh? What does Clinton have to do with Trump being a crony capitalist?

  • [1] September 25, 2016 at 2:17pm

    They look like good cell mates.

    One for Bribing Politicians and Crony Capitalism. The other for Murder and Treason.

    I have been trying to justify voting for Trump y using the logic that Trump would do anything to be a winner.

    That he would could even become more conservative than Reagan just so he could go down in history as being better than Reagan. I believe Trump wants to be the best in history books.

    However, he could also be easily swayed the other way if he feels it will put him in the history books positively.

    So that’s what my issue is with Trump. He is in it ALL FOR HIMSELF. Thats not a good quality. In fact, that is a very scary quality in my book.

    Is he better than Hillary right now? YUP! But guess what quality Hillary has. She is in it for herself. She wants to be the first Female president in the History books. She wants to be extremely wealthy.

    Did Cruz forget all that he said against Trump? None of that matters now? He no longer cares that he feels Trump will say or do anything to be elected? Instead he wants to stake his reputation on a guy who he feels will flip flop at anytime?

    I hate to say this, but I think this was just a tactical move for Cruz simply because he pledged an oath to support the nominee. And it would look bad for his future political aspirations if he had the “Lyin Ted” label on his resume. In other words, he was being a politician. Now I think Cruz will do anything to get elected.

    Not a quality I am looking for in a president.

  • [1] September 25, 2016 at 10:14am

    Insightful,

    I understand all that. Here again is the problem. Everyone I know who liked Cruz was extremely upset that he chose to go to the convention and not endorse Trump. They all said why in the world even go? He should have never even showed up because all it did was further divide the party.

    My excuse for Cruz was that he showed up because Trump asked him to come. That I believed Trump set Cruz up and that Cruz thought it was a genuine invite.

    Now? Not so much.

    Cruz told people about the shady people who Trump had in his campaign. He talked about all the progressive things Donald had done and is doing. He said he cannot trust Trump because he is a flip-flopper. He kept pointing out the similarity’s to Hillary.

    Now, none of that matters? He now says Trumps policies are stronger in such and such areas but he cannot trust Trump? Or, does he now trust Trump?

    The reason why I still dont support Trump is because I believe he will do anything to win. Why did he pick pence? To make himself look more conservative. Same reason Obama picked Biden. To give america the illusion that he had more experience.

    Trump will do anything to be a winner. Even trash ones family. Sorry, I cannot stand behind that. EVER! Not unless Trump himself came out in public and asked for my forgiveness for playing dirty politics and targeting ones family. Only then would I consider Trump genuine and that he was just caught up in the process.

    “He’s an outsider, and not part of the problem.”

    Ya, right. He buys and sells politicians, yet he is not part of the problem?

    Did we not complain at one time about lobbyist?

    Hmmmmmm…..
