We have seen violent protesters across the nation, tearing up citys and pulling down statues.
The interesting thing is now we are seeing the men and women of this country standing up and saying no to this chaos that's going on right now.
First, you have the federal government giving lots of indictments and arrests. Then you have the great civilians out helping clean up the mess left behind by riots and protest.
Then you got people like this sheriff who is telling violent protesters and rioters lawlessness is not excepted in his county and to those who try he will bring you all the publicity, pain, glamour and glory for the five minutes they are arresting you.

“In Clay County we have a great quality of life. We have a great relationship with our community. But across this nation, not so much.
I wanted to take a stand with these men and women who feel the same way as I do.
Lawlessness, that’s unacceptable in this country. Lawlessness, that’s unacceptable in Clay County.
And if you come to Clay County and you think for one second, we’ll bend our backs for you, you’re sadly mistaken.
I know what happens when lawlessness prevails.
And in this day and time, God is raising up men and women just like the folks standing behind me who will have strong backbones and will stand in the gap between lawlessness and the citizenry we’re sworn to protect.”
But someone 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, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll 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. That’s what we’re going to do. You’ve been warned.
