As the saying goes, “along with tremendous power comes tremendous responsibility.”  I cannot think of any person in public service who fits that saying more than a county sheriff.  However, the major networks have spent many years brainwashing the populace into thinking that Federal Agents are the top cops. 

How many times have you seen a cop show on TV where the Feds show up, flash their badge and relieve the local sheriff? Then, local sheriff storms off in frustration because the Feds took over the case.  That, good people, is brainwashing.

What many people are unaware of is that your sheriff is the top law enforcement official in your county.  He or She has jurisdiction, even over the Feds.  There are many people, with whom I have spoken, who believe that the only chance that this country has is for good, honest sheriffs to stand up and assert their power.  Perhaps not a silver bullet, but if every sheriff of every county found their constitutional spine, it would set the Feds plan of dominating the population back 25 years. 

The first thing that we could do is kick the Feds off of our lands.  But, I digress. 

In Arizona, the Arizona Sheriffs Association is asserting their power over the Feds… or at least their power not to comply.  When the Feds “ruled by decree” that any trailers left in the National Forest in AZ would be towed if left more than 72 hours, the ASA shot back.  Click here to read ASA resolution. 

The document bears the signature of ASA President Joseph Dedman, Jr. and it concludes with the following resolve:
   




That the Arizona Sheriffs are opposed to the policies of the Coconino, Kaibab, and Prescott National Forests limiting the parking of trailers on National Forests limiting the parking of trailers on National Forests to a 72 hours period during hunting season and will not enforce any federal government regulation imposed on our citizens depriving them of their right to utilize their public lands.


Take note of this resolution and hold your own county sheriff to the same Constitutional standards that the ASA have adopted for themselves.

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

When it comes to matters of federal law, at the least, it is the federal government and its officers, not the local state government, including the local sheriff, that is the top law enforcement officer in a given county.

It seems the message of this article is that AZ sheriffs believe they have supremacy, inside a National Park, in their county. It would be interesting what a court might say.

In the summer of  1971 I was on a tour of scenic areas with my brother-in-law, and we made the mistake of winding up in Bryce Canyon National Park, in Garfield County Utah, on a Sunday. Garfield County was then entirely dry on Sundays.

Previously we had purchased beer provisions at a store inside Zion National Park, in adjacent Washington County, so we incorrectly assumed the Sunday ban did NOT pertain to the National Parks.

We did solve the problem by driving to Panguitch Utah, still in Garfield County, where the proprietors of a Union 76 station were willing to exchange our greenbacks for about 6 cases of vital supplies for our excursion.

The actual purchase was fascinating, as we loaded the supplies into our camping van, while old gentlemen in overalls watched the two young lads from the Golden State.

They were visiting the Union station, with its neon sign advertising for prohibited beer sales. We laughed all the apparent hypocrisy,  all the way back to our camping spot.
