Got the Job and Introduced the Interviewer to RP

I'm glad I brought Liberty Defined to read while I was waiting for my interview yesterday.

I have to say that after my lie detector test I was a bit nervous. All my work over the past 12 months was dependent on a good final interview with a Lieutenant in the department. I calmed my nerves by reading roughly 60 pages of the Doctor's book. When he arrived in the waiting room he greeted me, we shook hands, and he then asked me about the book. I told him its by Ron Paul and he asked me what it was about. I told him politics and then I jokingly said, "They say the two things you never talk about at dinner are politics and religion. But I guess we are not at dinner." That got a chuckle out of him.

After talking politics and telling him about RP for roughly 5 minutes we proceeded with the interview. What an ice breaker!

I could tell he was intrigued by Ron Paul and after 4 hours at the station, I got the job as a Deputy Sheriff.

On more thanks goes out to Dr Paul.

Now you can educate the

Now you can educate the brethrens about the Constitution and stop breaking down doors of pot smokers and tasing kids for riding skateboards...

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

Libertarians Make Good Cops

That's what you want: someone protecting the rights of the public to be free. Fewer problems, fewer lawsuits, more popularity with the public.

Sheriff is an elected position.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Congratulations on getting the job

And thanks for spreading liberty

A Deputy hired...

A Deputy hired, at least in part, because his principles are grounded in Liberty. I have no major complaints specifically about law enforcement in my area, but I'm wishing that I lived in yours.

Freedom Wins!

Dr. Paul already creating more jobs than Obama

This is great to read. Congrats on getting a job where you will have the ability to protect liberty. Good work!!!

Liberty Defined is one of the best books i have ever read. I sent it to my best friend and converted him to Dr. Paul.

Congrats

It looks like America Just got a Good Cop. No offense to police intended but Most of them are not very good people in my Opinion but now I at least know there is one out there who will serve and protect.

That's Awesome!

Now if he could just "catch" you reading Sheriff Mack's book! ;-)

Congratulations on the new

Congratulations on the new job! And good work on spreading the word!

Holy crap, A Ron Paul

Holy crap, A Ron Paul supporter that is a police officer, Time for us to get ready to elect you sheriff of that county.

A Ron Paul cop...heads will explode here

Many here absolutely hate cops, but love Ron Paul.

I think we'll all embrace you.

It's very much like hating Republicans, but loving Ron Paul. The difference being character, principle, etc.

A sheriff and his deputies

A sheriff and his deputies executing the laws as necessary are a lot different than a company of soldiers patrolling the streets and actively looking for someone to harass.

I think you have it all wrong

I think you have it all wrong simply because you fail to make the distinction between good cops and bad cops. We love the good cops & despise the bad cops. That's a big difference than just plainly saying we hate all cops. Let's also keep in mind that many of us who are quite outspoken on this issue have family members who are police officers. I happen to believe that bad cops create bad public perception of all cops and as a result makes their job a lot less safe.

...

Some here hate all cops...look at any police brutality post

Some people made wide-sweeping statements against all cops. I was sort of drawing them out...seeing what they thought of a Ron Paul cop.

Speaking of wide-sweeping statements, I never said "we hate all cops". You got that all wrong.

Anyway, I'm like your statement, there is a need for good cops, and I dislike bad cops. Most reasonable people think that way.

Congratulations

May the Lord keep you safe and protect you and your family in your service to your community.

Congratulations, and God Bless you.

Congratulations. Welcome to

Congratulations. Welcome to the DP.

Now....

Once you put that gun on, keep your head about you. Read the Constitution and act accordingly....please. I have seen what badges do to people. 5 years with a cop and going to shift change parties and other functions taught me a lot about cops and what happens when two of more uniforms are put together. Be careful with your mind. There is certainly something in the old adage about power...

Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?

And please continue your excellent

education work by taking a thoughtful look at the principles upheld by OathKeepers.

What sort of questions did they ask on lie detector test?

Heck, my mind is such that I don't think I'd pass one. For example, if I'm late to work, I feel like I'm stealing...even if I make it up by working late. Writing a personal note using a company pen is stealing their ink...etc.

So if a lie detector asked, "Have you stolen from the job?" I'd say "Yes."

Anyway, congrats on the job!

My mind is the same way which

My mind is the same way which made a polygraph I took as one of the most stressful and draining experiences in my life. After it, I can completely understand how cops get false confessions. To address your question, they will ask if the stolen item is worth more than a certain value, say $200, as I think they asked me for a government job 15 years ago. You also know in advance what the questions will be. Several times I gave a false positive, meaning the guy thought I was lying when I wasn't.
