Effort to abolish local sheriffs a stealth federal power grab?

A news report has been quietly making its way around the alternative media, under the radar screen, concerning a Delaware legal decision to strip county sheriffs of their arrest powers in the state.

The mainstream media has not reported the story, but the son of Vice President Joe Biden, who serves as Attorney General for the state of Delaware, has issued a mandate to county commissioners informing them that sheriffs in the state’s three counties no longer have arrest powers.

When the information reached this reporter late yesterday evening, further investigation revealed that there is a nationwide effort to strip local sheriffs of most of their enumerated powers that are mandated in the state constitutions of the various states. Such a move would have the net effect of abolishing local sheriffs departments and strengthening the power of federal law enforcement agencies.

The Sheriff in the county where I do business is

completely out of control. I can not imagine how the fed could be worse. This outfit is already stealing anything that is nailed down. The deputies absolutely never follow the laws they are supposed to enforce. They have killed many people with their speeding (with immunity) but they seem to just drive faster. They only enforce stupid nonviolent laws and are seemingly trying to destroy any opportunity a person down on their luck may retain cementing them to the underclass. It is horrific. I would never call them if I had a problem. How could the feds be worse?
