Standing in the gap, Sheriff and other elected officials protect a veteran from federal abuse.Interposition at its best. Posted by Rick Dalton

When an Idaho veteran recentl;y was faced with a federal bureaucracy which threatened to violate his Fourth and Second Amendment rights, he was fortunate to have a Constitutional Sheriff, and a state legislator who came to his aid and stood between him and the Veteran’s Administration who was going to take his guns away. Bonner County Sheriff Daryl Wheeler, Idaho State representative heather Scott, and Washington State Rep. Matt Shea announced that the VA would have to “come through us” if they wanted to violate the vet’s rights. Here’s the link to the story, in a video made live on the day the VA was to...

Black elected Sheriff Analyzes the “news” from Baltimore.

Sheriff Davie A. Clarke Jr., CSPOA Sheriff of the Year in 2013, is not afraid to say what needs to be said about ending the lawlessness, death and destruction in Baltimore, Maryland.  According to Fox News, “Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke lashed out (video above) at Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake as the chaos unfolded Monday night. Clarke called out a lack of leadership by Rawlings-Blake, with Sean Hannity wondering why the city seemed to be unprepared for the riots to worsen after protests already took place Saturday night. ”   This violence and lawlessness is the result of decades of progressive policies in Baltimore, which, unlike Ferguson, MO, has a black city council, black mayor, black Police commissioner, and a 50% black police department.   The breakup of the family unit is partially to blame here in Baltimore, as it is in many cities across America.  High school kids left school and en masse attacked the police with bricks,  bottles, and other dangerous objects.  They ransacked stores, destroying many of them by damage and fire.   CSPOA calls for strong leadership and decisive actions to stop the violence quickly.  Order must be restored.  “There has been a rush to judgement before all the facts are in concerning the death of a man in po9lice custody last week” said Rick Dalton, CSPOA Executive Vice President.  “We only today heard a report that the subject was attempting to hurt himself inside the police van”, said Dalton.  If this is true, there is a lot of explaining to do.

The “Battle of Bunkerville” one year later.

It’s been 1 year since the federal government was forced to back down from its illegal and dangerous attack on American citizens in Bunkerville, Nevada. Here’s a brief story of that ordeal pieced together from amateur footage taken on the scene as it happened. As of this date, the BLM has not been back to steal cattle or to physically harass the Bundys.  In another development, Rick Dalton, CSPOA Executive Vice President and Legislative Liaison, was recently  in Carson City and testified in support of AB408, a Nevada legislature bill to transfer title of all the vast Nevada land claimed by the BLM.  “I believe that there is a chance to begin anew the Sagebrush Rebellion, and to get the western states back on an equal footing in terms of controlling their own territory”, he said....

War Between Cops and Black Citizens? Sheriff Clarke says no

So what’s this race thing between cops and blacks? Is there really a war on out there? Sheriff David D. Clarke, Jr., of Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, and a CSPOA member, gives straight talk at a US Senate hearing on the nomination of a replacement for Eric Holder, disgraced Attorney General. He testified recently before the Senate, and had a lot to say about who’s fueling the flames of violence.  You didn’t  see this on the major media news.  Sheriff Clarke is the CSPOA Sheriff of the Year, and a member of our Advisory Board.  He’s a good example of the kind of Sheriff we need. Sheriff Richard Mack (Ret.), founder of CSPOA, stated, “We certainly know that there are law enforcement officers out there who disgrace their oath and tarnish the badge they wear, and they need to be brought to justice.  But they are few and far between.  With over a half million peace officers in America, the vast majority are doing their best to serve their communities and protect people’s rights.”  “Man of them risk, and some give their lives every year in the service of the American people”, he said....

Illegal Immigration Invasion causes problems for Sheriffs, other officials.

The illegal immigration invasion is causing problems for sheriffs, police officers and elected officials around the nation, as the federal government transports thousands of illegal aliens to various sates and localities, often without notice to those in charge of keeping the peace in those areas. Bristol County, Massachusetts Sheriff Thomas Hodgson has noted that about two-thirds of the underage illegals that have come here through our southern border are granted asylum almost immediately. This fact, he says, will open up the floodgates and could overwhelm local resources. Hodgson opposed housing these illegal alien juveniles in Massachusetts, and has said that the invasion of illegals is “a crisis of leadership in our country”. In Ohio, Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones has had enough of this sorry situation. He sent a letter to the President of Mexico along with a bill for the cost of incarcerating illegal aliens in the county jail. Shortly thereafter, he received a letter from the US federal government claiming he had violated a treaty from the 18th century, and a phone call from the FBI warning him that he is one of three sheriffs in America who are on a drug cartel hit-list. According to The Blaze, Sheriff Jones, pictured on the right, had this to say: ““We’ve had horrendous crimes here in this community,” Jones said. “We had a senior citizen, an elderly lady, molested by a teenager that came over from Mexico. We had another one molested — an eight year old girl. We’ve had drugs pouring in, more so than before the government said the borders were sealed. And we’re being run over...
