  •  Got his personal assistant... (6+ / 0-)

    She was polite but a little shocked to get this call.  Told her the Sheriff's actions were an embarrassment, that the Sheriff should be concentrating on the problems of crime and meth use in Linn County, not inserting himself into National politics.  Also used the "he must have missed civics class because

    Constitutionality is determined by the courts, not by the sheriffs department.  Thanks CFAmick

    Anyone else want to call?

      •  I live in his county an I'll vote for him again (0+ / 0-)

        he also picks and chooses the Immigration and Pot laws he enforces and has writtent to thee Feds concerning these also. No liberal could fult him for these positions!
        Any liberal who knows this guy should cote for him

        I'm going to email him and tell him I think he's doing an excellent job and all I have to do is look at the crime statistics----eat your heart out, Portland! NY! CA!!

        Happy just to be alive

          and don't care for him either. They have called the Sheriff's Office and they don't even show up. The deputies just call by phone to tell folks "it ain't nuthin."

          I glad that you have reasons to respect him. Too bad we all don't.

            If you actually want to look at the crime stats you will see that this is one of the safest counties in one of the safest states.
            Yes you have to be ready for do it yourself law enforcement, as with many OR counties. Its a matter of funding, not the sheriff's desires.

            Ive met the man, know people who know him well, have watched him all the time he's been sheriff, voted for him.
            When you and the other people here can say that, I'll have more respect for your opinion in this matter

            Happy just to be alive
