Quantcast

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?

Folks I just can't make this sh!t up. This has apparently been an effort started by Crazy Uncle, Joe Biden's son Beau Biden who just happens to be the Delaware Attorney General.

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.

    Many Sheriff's nationwide are threatening to protect the citizens in their jurisdictions from blatant unconstitutional federal overreach. The idea that the statists cannot do what they want terrifies them so they will try to legislate the threat away.

    They are trying to find a way around the Supreme Court Ruling from the Clinton era when they ruled in favor of Sherrif Mack and against the Brady gun law. Local sherrif's have the authority to protect their citizens from the feds. Obama does not like this.

    There are at least two sides to every story and often even more. As I understand the situation, the role of county sheriffs in Delaware, has been for at least the past 80 years, quite different than the role of sheriffs in most (perhaps all) other states.

    The sheriffs offices of the 3 counties in Delaware have acted as process servers, and the agents of sheriff sales for the county. As the website for the Sussex County Delaware Sheriffs Office puts it: "This office serves papers for the courts and holds Sheriff's sales for non-payment of taxes, mortgage foreclosures plus all other court orders." http://www.sussexcountyde.gov...

    However, the recently elected (in 2010) new sheriff of Sussex County, Jeff Christopher (a retired police officer from Maryland - not in Delaware), who served under the previous sheriff for 7 years has decided to take on an expanded role and began to make unauthorized traffic stops, respond to state police calls not issued to the sheriffs department, making arrests without affording the suspect his Constitutional rights, resulting in having the charges dismissed by a judge because of the errant arrest. The previous sheriff also tried the same thing and encountered similar resistence on the same legal grounds. Sheriff Christopher is pushing the issu...

The previous sheriff also tried the same thing and encountered similar resistence on the same legal grounds. Sheriff Christopher is pushing the issue again.


    The unauthorized expansion of his duties has also resulted in his getting behind on his other duties including a backlog on sheriff's sales several months deep. So in response to his actions and claim of authority not afforded the office of sherrif in that state for at least 80 years, the Attorney General of Delaware (who happens to be Joe Biden's son) has informed Sheriff Christopher that his office of sherrif is not afforded by the State Constitution any powers of arrest beyond those afforded to any US citizen.

    Since he is contesting that assertion with a law suit, which by the way the other two county sherrifs in Delaware do not support, the State Assembly has introduced a bill to clearly state that the Office of County Sheriff does not have legal arrest authority. The other county officials in Sussex County concurr.

    Therefore Christopher is taking his case to the press in other states and to the internet in hopes of garnering public support.

    Anything that uses an anonymous "source" or "tipster" is more often than not made up. There's no accountability, people can make up whatever they want on the internet.

    This fits the format of a chain email. They are easy to recognize, they all use the same formula. I've been seeing them for years.

    It's going to take a large number of law enforcement men to stand to oppose this government's usurpation of power from them and the people. If my guess is right, we'll probably be facing United Nation Blue Hat military in the United States before this mess is settled.

    Well 1st, your poll is crap! That being said, you may want to get a new source for your information that's not purely propaganda...

    Delaware:

    Per Title 10, Chapter 21 of the Delaware Code, the Sheriff is an officer of the court. Responsibilities include processing orders of the court system; summoning inquests, jurors, and witnesses for the courts; and, conducting execution sales against personal and real estate property. County Sheriffs and their regular appointed deputies also take into custody unincarcerated persons immediately upon conviction of an imprisonable offense and convey them to the appropriate correctional facility to serve their terms. The County Sheriffs and their deputies do not engage in typical law enforcement, their primary role is to provide enforcement services for the courts. Typical law enforcement, such as the enforcement of motor vehicle laws, investigation of crimes and routine policing patrols are performed by State, County and municipal (Town or City) police forces.
