Thanks to the Liberty Crier and Lawrence Taylor, a California DUI attorney, for alerting me to this.
Buried amidst the usual election year pablum from Sheriff Ed Brown of Onslow County, North Carolina, was this absolutely horrifying declaration:
“Those in the law enforcement profession have complete power and authority over you, your life, you family, your loved ones, your rights, your freedom, your future, and everything precious to life.”
Yes he actually said this. Click here and scroll down to the second red bar.
Oh, I wish I could have responded to this as succinctly as Robert Lenn of Jacksonville, North Carolina, did in this letter to the editor.
“I read Sheriff Ed Brown’s full-page ad in the paper Feb. 2 edition of The Daily News. All freedom-loving Americans should be scared of what it says.
“In the ad, Brown states, “Those in the law enforcement profession have complete power and authority over you, your life, your family, your loved ones, your rights, your freedom, your future and everything precious to life.”
“Ed Brown must want us to live in a total-domination police state.
“It is our Constitution and Bill of Rights that guarantee our freedoms. Any politician who believes in Ed Brown’s statement is not worthy of any public office.
“I totally reject Ed Brown’s claim that law enforcement has complete power and authority over me. As an American, I trust in the guarantees of our Constitution and believe in our democratic way of life; and I will fight against those who would want to impose their tyranny over us.”
