    D6EED865-F259-4E50-8B6E-908154BB4491.jpeg A fiend of mine who is an LT for the city FD sent me a screen shot of our County Sheriff takin a knee at an “anti police rally” we had two weeks ago. I’ve been on a slow burn over this and wanted to see if anyone else has seen this from their local LEO’s. Funny he does this while there are signs saying “FU*K THE POLICE” and other lovely messages. Hell even his own deputies were having to provide security for the event and he does this?? He even spoke about police brutality. Yep yep how’s that saying go “no respect-no more”


    Oh and he runs on the County Democrat ticket so is it his persona feelings or doing what the local Libs expect of him....?

    In the event you ask-I live in Tuscarawas County Ohio....

    Either way, I'd be raising a voice against him, reminding people he is a cowardly POS, next election.

    Well the funny thing is the SO has quals this week at my range that I help run. I’m sure I’ll see him at some point and express my displeasure.

    FWIW, I live just north in Stark and, given our history of left leaning sheriffs, it wouldn't surprise me one bit to see ours kneeling right next to him.

    Anyone who takes a knee is an idiot, they just don’t know it yet. That is undebatable.

    Funny you mention that....we were discussing the long line of Dem/Left leaning sheriffs of the past between Tusc and Stark yesterday. It’s all a joke anymore.

    We have a democratic sheriff too. He's been taking a knee for years but for different reasons.

    Tell him the entire qual will be from a kneel since that's the position he's most comfortable with.

    For tactical safety and all.

    I normally renew my permit in Wayne county because of the antics at the stark office. I renewed the last time in stark because they were ordered to stop the nonsense and they were still a bit surly. Made me feel a bit better knowing that the room full of people getting renewals was pi$$ing them off.

    The ones taking a knee do not seem to understand.
    Given a chance, the same mob would beat him to death.

    Pretty much the same at stark.... long waits, BS appointments, etc... Took about 2 hours this time tho. At least the waiting room was filled with good folks to talk to so the time passed pretty quick. Wayne is much faster but the last time I went their computers were down so it was a wasted trip. I came back the next week and was in and out in about 20 min. If I add in my drive time, it's pretty much a wash between Wayne and Stark.

    I’m on a first name basis with many LEO’s in my county and they are all fed up with the current situation going on and many are extremely upset over the Sheriff taking a knee....I can also tell you I was used/abused by our county Sheriff and one of his deputies while working to purchase an item from them a few years ago. Long story short-I got used, tossed aside, and never got a thank you public nor private for all the work I put in.

    There should be a personal complaint made against him for conduct unbecoming an officer. Let him cancel it and then publish it in the local paper or on FOX news.

    Also, most sheriffs are on the Presidential election cycle, so he should be up for re-election this year....put him OUT.

    It's amazing that people are so idiotic. How can someone that has been elected to a position as his, take sides? Any side other than the side of all the people? He is a servant to the people, not certain people. What a shame! I hope his constituents remember this come election time. If our Sheriff did this, I'd disown him immediately and bombard his office with calls, letters, posts on their FB page etc. until he was out off office. Nothing says "I'm an emasculated LEO" like taking a knee in support of thugs!

    I’ve been in Law Enforcement a long time. I’ve seen many changes in policing throughout the years. But I never dreamed I’d see this complete BS!!! absolutely no way should any law enforcement agency/ officer should condone this thug behavior!!! Lawlessness should never prevail over law abiding citizens/communities. This type of behavior by LEO/Agencies only emboldens lawlessness/individuals

    Problem here is there isn’t anyone to run against him.
