“I want to thank every sheriff in America. Since our founding, the independently elected sheriff has been the people’s protector, who keeps law enforcement close to and accountable to people through the elected process,” Sessions said in remarks at the National Sheriffs Association winter meeting, adding, “The office of sheriff is a critical part of the Anglo-American heritage of law enforcement.”
Interesting that he’s not going after the weed or re-explaining something to Congress.
Very interesting that such an innocuous phrase might generate fear of “nefarious meaning.”
Most interesting that a 1970’s television show theme had it right:
He has no fear,
he’s always here,
his morale stands alone.

who guards our things as if they were his own.
He walks the streets from early dawn,
he stands behind our laws.
Both big and small,
he bends them all,
who dares to fight his cause.
-Sheriff Lobo, Frankie Lane.
