News of the CSPOA 2013 Convention: Hope and peace in the eye of the storm
With fierce winds swirling around the hotel in St. Charles, Missouri and much of St. Louis plunged into an unnatural darkness from downed power lines, over 200 convention attendees sat in the dim lighting from a backup generator and continued an awards banquet honoring those who had stood against huge odds in their own states and counties across the nation. Just as the final and most prestigious award for Sheriff of the year was to be given, hotel security evacuated us to a long, low hallway due to a tornado warning. Packed in like sardines, we listened as Sheriff David Clarke of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin stood on a chair and accepted his award for CSPOA Constitutional Sheriff Of The Year.
“You had by back when everything was going against me,” he said. “You called to give your support for the battle I was fighting, and when it’s your turn, I’ll have your backs as well.”
This tornado alert served as a metaphor for the entire convention. A group of dedicated sheriffs, law enforcement officers, state representatives and liberty-loving citizens came together to strengthen their resolve to find peaceful solutions to the REAL crisis of the day: The Freedom Crisis.
There is more to tell; much, MUCH more. It would take hours to summarize accurately. Luckily, it’s all on video, and coming your way as soon as we can get through all the footage.
