Peace Officer Vs. Police OfficerSubmitted by TishaTCasida on Sun, 11/04/2012 - 11:34
The President and the Sheriffs are the executors of the law. The President signs in laws with his or her pen, and the Sheriffs are the law enforcement body charged with upholding the Constitution and arresting individuals who are outside of “the law” – or more importantly – outside of the Constitution.
But what happens when statutory laws interfere with one’s natural, and individual rights? What happens when statutory laws erode your property rights and eliminate the First, Second, and Fourth Amendments to the Constitution?
At one point in time, the point of having law enforcement, was to protect one’s property and one’s property rights. That includes life and limb – your body and your life are property. But there has been a severe erosion of this concept, as we have more and more agencies, especially at the federal level of government, that seek to take and re-distribute your property and wealth. When law enforcement is used to erode your property, there is a problem.
We have a problem. Why is law enforcement being used to levy fines versus having law enforcement to protect people’s lives and property?
Speeding tickets, parking tickets, tickets for proof of insurance, tickets for expired license plates, tickets for emissions – all of these are examples of law enforcement’s authority and power being used to levy fees and fines (revenue generation for the government) versus to protect people’s property.
The great news is, since sheriffs are a part of the executive branch of government, and executors of the law – they can be petitioned by people living in their county to stand up and protect people’s property and individual, constitutional rights. The county sheriff can be petitioned to protect the Constitutional law instead of the statutory law (because there is a difference). The county sheriff can nullify statutory law that erodes property rights, and the county sheriff can even stop unconstitutional federal agencies if they come to indefinitely detain an individual who they deem a threat (http://casida2012.com/ndaa/individuals-counties-sheriffs-and...).
The word “sheriff” comes from “shire”, meaning county and “reeve” meaning representative. During the 11th century, the King of England would appoint a reeve for the shire to keep the peace in the county. Today, the shire-reeve, or sheriff, is charged with the same task. Sheriffs are popularly elected (unlike the Presidency with the corrupt electoral system), so it is really up to the people who their local executor of the law is. And it is up to the people to elect a sheriff and representatives who are more concerned with keeping the peace, versus using the heavy hand of the law to raise revenue.
There’s always a solution, and it is usually always local. So let’s start there, with our county sheriffs, to protect and defend our individual, natural rights and our property and wealth that we work so hard for. It is up to us to elect peace officers instead of police officers.
