or are they all wannabe tyrants?
This time it is Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, son of Vice
President Joe Biden, sending out mandates to commissioners informing
them that their sheriffs no longer have arrest powers. In an opinion
released Feb. 24, State Solicitor L.W. Lewis said that neither the state
nor the common law grants arrest powers to the county sheriffs.
Every answer I can think of to 'Why?' involves grabbing power and- with the current situation- trying to keep sheriffs in Delaware from following the line of a lot of others: "Try to enforce unconstitutional laws and we'll arrest you."
(yeah, this is from a short time ago, somehow I forgot to post it.
