BenSwann.com Exclusive: FL Sheriff Arrested, Charged With Felony & Suspended For Protecting Citizens’ 2nd Amendment Rights

"In a developing story, Sheriff Nick Finch was arrested, charged with a felony and suspended without pay for supporting a citizens 2nd Amendment rights. It’s not a story you hear every day. It’s certainly not a story you’d expect out of a county named Liberty."

Isn't Scott the same Governor

who just signed into law a bill that requires all welfare recipients as well as all state employees be drug tested? Pay no attention to that Governor behind the curtain that owns the largest drug testing company in the state.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Nick Finch is a hero

As you know, a Sheriff is the highest elected official in a county.

I agree with the poster below who suggested the deputy was operating as an infiltrator under a state department to take out Finch one way or another (multible victimless arrests and complaints).

What organization arrested Finch is mission info.. could be Marshalls or Rangers, working for the State (governor). In addition, it would be interesting who replaced Finch, Gov appointed, or another deputy, and what is happening to some people that the Sheriff was protecting the state has issues with.. are their raids going on now? What is happening to the people of the county?

I applaud Sheriff mack and wish him abundant success on his fundraisers, getting the message out.

Who is the governor working for, surely not the people of Florida.

And it is exactly in a county named "Liberty" one could expect, as Liberty is a very popular word, so a search engine would hide the story much easier than if the county was named, Crackerville.

Thank you for the post. I LOVE my sheriff and wouldn't want this to happen to him.

The governor needs to be arrested.

Why doesn't a pro Constitution sheriff arrest the governor next time he steps foot in their county?

Can't this game be played both ways?

The governor is guilty of open sedition against the Constitution. He also usurped his power by having a sheriff arrested for doing his job of protecting the rights of a citizen from an abusive deputy as well as from an unconstitutional law.

Good call.


Here's how you know the officer did something pro-liberty

The dead giveaway is that he was suspended without pay.

Doesnt really matter, but KrisAnne Hall broke this a while back.

Ben's my guy and it doesn't really matter, but I think KrisAnne Hall broke this a while back.

+1 booya for you and -1 for Ben

Exclusive to what or whom exactly? We became aware of this weeks ago.

Exclusive to the MSM Ben? Exclusive to "respectable reporters" who wear ties?

It's like when Jesse Ventura tells us FOR THE FIRST TIME about SHOCKING DISCOVERIES he means it's the first time for him, Jesse Ventura.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

KrisAnne Hall

is wonderful :-)

For those interested, here is a schedule:


Ben Swann goes without saying, as does KrisAnne :-)

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Nothing makes sense anymore.

I'm trying to figure out how an elected sheriff can just be dismissed off the job like he was a peon employee of the county. Can anyone explain this to me? Seems there would have to be a recall vote or official procedure. The whole system is FUBAR.

Read that states Constitution

It is in the New York state Constitution.

Power has its roots on paper very early.

exactly right...

Each State is different.
NY gives power to the Governor over the sheriffs.


Wack situation.

Governor needs to be taken down.

I wonder if the deputy was a CIA asset. They are all over state government these days.... Or maybe he was approached by the feds and put up to it?

What would the Founders do?

Funny how officials that go

Funny how officials that go against the establishment get suspended without pay, but officials supporting the establishment (e.g. Lois Lerner)get suspended with pay...


The governor is a fool. No judge will convict--most judges are elected, and they do not want to hand down a decision that says the authority of the governor outweighs that of the voters.

Can you imagine what would happen if they "won"? If the decision was that the Sheriff exceeded his authority to decline to hold this guy, every sheriff would have been stripped of their ability to use their own judgement. That won't be popular, either.

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

Jury nullification needed

at the least.
