"... a tyrannical move afoot" - Sheriff Jeff Christopher

[link to wdel.com]

Sheriff says court setback expected, appeal is planned

"And I'm so sick and tired of people telling me that the sheriff is seeking the county police, and I've said it repeatedly that I'm not seeking the county police. There is a role for a constitutionally empowered sheriff, there had been for hundreds of years, even before the State Police even came along. For someone to say the sheriffs never had powers of arrest is ridiculous," says Christopher. "

One WDEL talkshow caller mentioned that the State Police dept. was created in 1923 with language that affirmed the arrest powers of the sheriff. (basically mirroring various aspects of arrest power). Another tidbit mentioned on the same program was Joe Biden's comment that he thought that an American pope would have given USA more "power". Spoken like a true soulless politician.
