email@example.com This is the FINAL nail in the coffin of FREEDOM!!! Billy-Joe..Mauldin -----------------------------------------------TO ALL COUNTY SHERIFFS LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AND FELLOW AMERICANS A growing number of concerned, alarmed, and dismayed individuals, aswell as groups, are becoming aware of a dangerous move to ELIMINATELOCAL COUNTY SHERIFFS' OFFICES and LOCAL law enforcement. The traditionof local government emphasizes the importance of local sheriffs as theSUPREME AUTHORITY in the counties. That is why the sheriff is electedby the people, not appointed. The county sheriff, as the only electedlaw enforcement position in the county, and holding this traditionalposition of high authority, can step in to uphold his duties ofprotecting the people of his county. A sheriff is a part of our systemof checks and balances so that government cannot misuse its authority. Local sheriffs MUST NOT abdicate their authority or duties to ANYONE(judges, government, county commissioners, local chieftains etc.) exceptTO THE CONSTITUENTS THEY SERVE as a proper functionary of local countygovernment. That is why the sheriff is elected by the people, notappointed to become a mouthpiece, instrument, or representative of theFederal Government or any of its agencies. The plan to climax local government and 'federalize' counties by theelimination of sheriffs has been revealed by many sources over the yearsas it has been a gradual process in its implementation--gradual butsteady-- as the people, as well as law enforcement, have slept duringthe encroachment. Most recently an article authored by Betty Freauf,former Oregon Republican State Party Secretary, has been written.Another source is Bernadine Smith of the Second Amendment Committee, whorevealed in an article that a local sheriff in Ohio has corroborated bysaying, "it is coming--it's true." Further confirmation is seen in theactions in some counties as federal marshals have already moved in as a"partner"and one sheriff in Ohio has already declared himself A FEDERAL AGENT !!! John McManus, William Norman Grigg, William Jasper, and Jack McLamb havealso researched and published information on this important matter.(See reverse side for further sources of documentation, reference,research and study).Centralizing, streamlining, regionalizing, militarizing, federalizing,revamping law enforcement to enhance command and control systems iscontrary to our form of government and should not be a prerogative ofthe Federal Government no matter for what reason. More recently countyand state functions are further usurped by the Federal Government viaHomeland Security and the Patriot Act (elected representatives didn'tEVEN READ nor were they allowed to view this bill before its passageaccording to Rep. Ron Paul -Texas). Homeland Security advances thegoal in State Department Document # 7277, which requires a "force" topreserve internal order and that "force" will be a military forcecompletely ignoring the1878 Posse Comitatus Act which prevents any armed forces from conductingarrests on civilians. Both local police and sheriff's departments are being transformed fromlocal entities, protecting and serving the people from criminals, intoinstruments of the Federal Government, thus instead of serving thepeople, they, like the rest of us, are becoming servants of the FederalGovernment as it encroaches into every segment of our very lives. Thisis contrary to our system of government and must be stopped if we are toremain free as a nation and free as individuals. The hallmark of all tyranny, and terrorism itself, has always beennationalization of police power and the TRANSFER OF ITS LOYALTY TO ACENTRAL GOVERNMENT where the goal of the nationalized law enforcement isthe MAINTENANCE of power to that central government, and anyone speakingout or rising against the implementation and takeover by that governmentis labeled a "domestic terrorist". Federalizing and militarizing civilian law enforcement systems should bea RED ALERT to draw a sharp line in the sand between the two. If not,our system of government will be unified and transformed fromrepresentative government to a dictatorship type government. Allsheriffs should stand tall; we the people will stand with you, as YOUSERVE US in your duty to PROTECT us----the hour is late, but withdiligent effort we can reclaim local control of government and retainthe offices of the elected county sheriffs so help us God !!!
