Have they lost their minds? This is depressing, indeed.

Police cannot pick and chose what laws to enforce,that's called anarchy not democracy.

Noted. Thanks, Carrie. I believe we have a couple of those so-called sheriffs here in AZ. Fortunately, I'm in a "progressive" county (comparatively). But, I do wonder what will happen when "push comes to shove."

The Right Wing is really concerned about law and order. Until the law doesn't say what they want it to. Then you get interesting questions about legality in the form of Rick Perry and Bundy. You know, just for a couple examples.
