I live near this asshole and hope he gets fired soon!

Farking conservatives thinks it's OK to break the law, if it is something they want. But ask for Equal Rights for Brown or Gay people and HOLY shiat, your asking fro crimes against humanity!!

Well, I guess we can disband the Supreme Court now. This brilliant legal scholar has it all under control

Meanwhile, they're still all for seizing assets without going to court to prove guilt first.

Sherifs are elected officials. I dont know how they do it in Colorado, so maybe you can answer me this. Can the state remove a Sherif from power? The only ways that I could think of that the state could fire him is if the sherif were convicted of a crime

FTFA: Cooke says of the new laws: "They're feel-good, knee-jerk reactions that are unenforceable."

Of course they're unenforcable, because the guy in charge of enforcing them just explained that he refused to do so.

Do they swear to uphold the Constitution and all the duly-passed laws of their state? Because if so, you've got him on a perjury charge, or dereliction of duty, or violating his oath of office (or, like a prosecutor with a boner, charge him with ALL of that, PLUS murder 1, 2, 3, 4, and 25, PLUS "theft of services", PLUS "being dumb in a dumbass-free zone").

// if not, how do we know they're supposed to enforce the law?

They'll talk a big game until a team from the FBI shows up and sits them down to take depositions on whether or not they'll enforce signed state law.

Then they'll meekly agree to enforce the laws, understanding that the FBI will be testing them on the issue rather quietly.

Prostitution laws are stupid and unenforceable. So we won't bother.

Drug laws are stupid and unenforceable. So we won't bother.

Traffic laws are stupid and unenforceable. So we won't bother.

Sheriffs have a right to prioritize wich laws they will enforce. I seem to remember us liberal cheering when police officers were refusing Arizonas Paper Please laws.
 
2013-03-19 03:13:50 PM  
Isn't this kinda like "pre" jury nullification?  I mean, instead of acting like a cop, he's acting like a citizen.

I wish they would do that more, actually.  I'm tired of our paramilitary enforcement guard...er...I mean, civil servants.  (scoff)

Cuz I want some back-woods county sheriff ruling on constitutional issues?

Go Joe!!!
 
2013-03-19 03:15:01 PM  
Good.  We need more people like him to stand up and say no.

The problems with the laws that he's against is that they only make it harder for law abiding people to get guns and will deter more law abiding people to get guns.  It's going to do nothing about guns that are acquired illegally or out of state.  I want to see more law enforcement officers around the nation say no to these laws.

People are really complaining about paying for Background checks?  I've had to pay for mine since the 90s.  The magazine size ban is pretty much useless without a corresponding Federal Law, even when there was a federal law limiting magazine size it was easy to get Hi-Cap mags they were just much more expensive.
 
2013-03-19 03:15:39 PM  
Did Arpaio set the stage for this sort of moronic grandstanding, or has the elected office of Sheriff always been used in this self aggrandizing fashion?
 
2013-03-19 03:15:55 PM  
Of all the people posting before me, one has read the article.
 
2013-03-19 03:15:58 PM  
The predominant thought seems to be that elected officials sworn to uphold and enforce duly passed laws, should not get to decide which laws they want to uphold and enforce?  Does that apply both to the local as well as the federal level?  What if the laws are not duly passed?

You are correct.

This is from the same lib-tard mentality that think its wrong to ask for a drug test for getting public assistance, or that don't care what you use you EBT card for.

Immigration laws are not within the jurisdiction of anyone but the federal government.

Question to the Farkers with a GED in law:

Let's say you get arrested in this guy's county for something like DUI. Could you argue discrimination in court due to the Sheriff admitting he is selectively enforcing laws?

I mean, common sense we know it's stupid, but I'm just wondering if a sheriff making this kind of claim to neglect his job duties could cause legal blow back from a different angle.

I don't think you are going to get an answer but I would love to see the mental gymnastics.
 
2013-03-19 03:17:49 PM  
Heard this argument several times from local Texas "conservatives."  Immigration and drug laws?  To be obeyed by all law enforcement at all times no matter what.  Gun laws?  Cops and citizens can just ignore those as they feel like it.

Ha, I saw this and thought it was that nutter from El Paso County.

\that it's the Weld County sheriff isn't surprising either.
 
2013-03-19 03:17:56 PM  
Well, good.

I'm gonna follow their example and not obey any law I feel is unconstitutional.
 
2013-03-19 03:18:03 PM  
We've already won industry opinion and it's only a matter of time until Lapierre self destructs. Universal checks are coming, and it doesn't matter how many sheriffs want to cry about it.

Every US Law enforcement agency in existence is ALLOWED to selectively enforce laws

Maybe they shouldn't be bothered to swear to uphold the Constitution either.  Yea, about that old document.

Darth_Lukecash: Sheriffs have a right to prioritize wich laws they will enforce. I seem to remember us liberal cheering when police officers were refusing Arizonas Paper Please laws.


Yup.

Police make decisions every day about which laws to enforce or not.  Sometimes it comes down to thinking the law is bullshiat and refusing to enforce a law they know is unjust.

This is one.
