A solid DC tipster has alerted me there is a stealth operative in Janet Incompetano's office trying to take away Sheriff's ability to arrest people. Do you agree with this?
I did some fact checking and sure enough found:
Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden, sending out mandates to commissioners informing them that their sheriffs no longer have arrest powers. In an opinion released Feb. 24, State Solicitor L.W. Lewis said that neither the state nor the common law grants arrest powers to the county sheriffs.
It would appear that Lewis is a little confused. The office of
sheriff was created more than a century before the official founding of
the United States. Delaware’s first sheriff took office in 1669.
Christopher tells AFP that the two administrations prior to his—as
far back as 2000—began to notice a reduction in funding and the chipping
away of powers of the office in general.
“Now my deputies and I have been relieved of all arrest powers and can’t even make a traffic stop,” he said. “Delaware has only three counties. . . The other two sheriffs . . . will not stand up with me” to prevent the elimination of county law enforcement, he said.
According to my source this has given Big Sis Napolitano an idea on a national level too. Seems to be an outright power play since Sheriff's Office controls State and County Gun Permitting and many have come forward saying they will not enforce a federal Gun Control bill.
