All elected officials and law enforcement officers swear an oath to uphold the Constitution of the United States. I am proud to live in a county where the sheriff has the courage to stand by that oath. I applaud Sheriff Spruell for not knuckling under to the desires of a governor and lawmakers who neither understand nor respect our Constitution and who believe it is no longer relevant.
Thank you, Sheriff Spruell, for honoring your commitment to us and to our country. I encourage you and all law enforcement officers to continue to keep the oath.
