Black FL Sheriff: I’ll Deputize Every Gun Owner in the County to Stop Rioters

In cities like New York, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and Seattle, officials are bending over backwards to avoid stomping out the violent riots that have accompanied the Black Lives Matter protests against police brutality. But in other places, local law enforcement has made it clear that they will not stand for any lawlessness in their jurisdictions, no matter how empowered and righteous the protesters may feel. Those on the law-and-order side of the calculation include Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels, who said this week that he’ll deputize every legal gun owner in the county if that’s what it takes to keep his Florida community from falling to chaos.

Daniels, who happens to be black himself, said in a video on Tuesday that nationwide scenes of violence, burning, and looting would not come to pass in his county.

“We’ll be waiting on you and we’ll give you everything you want. All the publicity, all the pain, all the glamour, and glory, for all that five minutes will give you,” Daniels warned as he stood before a row of his deputies. “Is it a threat? Absolutely not, but somebody has to step up in front of the camera and say enough is enough. Tearing up Clay County? That’s not going to be acceptable.

“If we can’t handle you, you know what I’ll do? I will exercise the power and authority as a sheriff and I will make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county, and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose: to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility. That’s what we’re sworn to do, and that’s what we’re going to do. You’ve been warned,” Daniels said.

In the video, Daniels encouraged Clay County citizens to look beyond the protest signs and the messaging from the media. He said that it’s important to remember that there are far, far more good cops than bad, and that making an enemy out of law enforcement would be a terrible societal mistake.

“Look, folks. Don’t fall victim to subjecting yourself to this conversation that law enforcement is bad, that law enforcement is the enemy of the citizens that we are sworn to protect and serve,” he said. “We swore an oath, and in that oath we swore to support, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States and the government, and that we are duly qualified under the state’s constitution to hold office. That is for me as a sheriff and for these men and women as deputy sheriffs, and we end that with ‘so help me, God.’

“But God is absent from the media’s message or Black Lives Matter or any other group out there that’s making themselves a spectacle, disrupting what we know to be our quality of life in this country,” he lamented. “In Clay County, we know we have a great quality of life. We have a great relationship with our community. But across this country, not so much. I just wanted to take a stand with these men and with these women who feel the same way that I do. Lawlessness, that’s unacceptable in this country. Lawlessness, that’s unacceptable in Clay County, and if you threaten to come to Clay County and think that for one second that we’ll bend our backs for you, you’re sadly mistaken.”

To say that it’s refreshing to see a message like this would be an understatement. It is, however, a much-needed reminder that, no matter what you might hear from the CNNs and Washington Posts of the world, most Americans do NOT want to defund the police. Most Americans do NOT want to let their cities fall to ruin just because a guy was killed in Minneapolis. Hopefully, when this George Floyd moment inevitably passes, sanity will indeed prevail.

  1. Доброго здоровья! Занимала средства в 2017 году в Индустриалбанке 4500, проплачивала, оставалась мелкая сумма, банк высчитали бешеные проценты за просрочку читала об этом вот, например.
    Под давлением обстоятельств не имела возможности заплатить.
    Исполнительная служба забанила все счета по банкам. Сообщение о постановление суда не приходило, наложили 58000 задолженности. Как быть ?

    The MSMedia or better known as the MSMafia spreading false narratives, to induce fear and incitement among the masses to plant seeds of distrust and hate among one another, and the MSMafia sit back and laugh at their control of people’s minds and the weakness they possess leading to confusion and chaos and to finally do their bidding. When we see any news anchor or journalist, challenge them wherever you see them, for one thing they won’t like it one bit for the guilt they carry. Whilst, across the States remain divided, fake news have parties and celebrate victories over the people and sucker politicians across the aisle in disbelief. Its time to hold MSMafia accountable for not reporting news as they see it, verbatim. We the people call out, “NO, PROPAGANDA!” OR “FACE CENSORSHIP!”
    msm: cnn, msnbc, wp, nyt, cbs, etc.

  3. Our country could use a whole lot more sheriffs like Darryl Daniels. While people have the right to voice their opinions, the rest of us are not required to listen to it or believe the message. Some fools believe rioting, destroying property and violence are all part and parcel of free speech, but Daniels will teach them they are sadly mistaken. Truth be told, that message should have been presented loud and clear weeks ago.

  4. God bless Daryl Daniels and Mayor Keisha Bottoms of Atlanta who now says that this is not the police officers so much as the blacks killing blacks in this three week protest. We have blacks in our neighborhood and church and everybody gets along. BLM is all about socialism and anarchy.
