    Or write him back and remind him he's on the public payroll but more important when hired he took an oath of that office and especially as to law enforcement whether he likes them or not!

    Next, write a letter to the editor, or anything you can think of that reaches numbers of South Carolinian's, same goes for the ones coming out publicly in other parts of the country, and inform the populace that seen as how these law enforcement public employee's are going to wipe out federal laws that the little dictators just wiped out their own state and local laws so it's wide open  as to what any individual chooses to do as well and just as they have chosen!!

      And pointed out his obligations as a law enforcement officer.  But he's a tough nut to crack (with apologies to pecans).  In his video he all but says South Carolina law is constitutional by definition and supreme to those of the United States.  In fact that bit was my last straw; hence this diary.

      I would indeed write to Charleston County newspapers myself, but with a Yankee address, I find my comments don't go down well with southern audiences. :-)

      Your suggestion of going after every self-proclaimed nullification law enforcement officer is an excellent one.  When I run across another, I'll tee up another diary. The more we find, the more effective a petition on the president's petition site.

      BTW, Charleston County is huge and home to the city of Charleston.  It's astounding what an uninformed electorate can vote for.  By the way, good-ol'-boy power is alive and well throughout South Carolina, but threats to tourist dollar$ in Charleston can result in a lot of changes.
