So before I continue, let me first state that an elected official, an individual elected to the post of Sheriff or any other elected official should never post suggestive threats on their personal Facebook page, especially when the threats are against someone who is not breaking the law. It is an abuse of power, a threatening coercive tactic that is without merit, honor or integrity. A disheartening tactic under the guise of the law and behind the safe confines of the badge; simply because he can. It is obvious that the Sheriff is making an attempt to prevent myself and others from protesting by suggestive threats of arrest. Clearly in his mind, it is more than reasonable to skirt the law, the constitution and the already defined rights of free speech. It is at this point that if you agree with the Sheriff and his tactics than I am certain you will not wish to read any further; if however you disagree with his use of power to intimidate others, than please read on. It is your choice as always.
I think it is prudent that before I go any further that I first state that in all of my posts in the Philippi forum that not one of them has been of a threatening nature in any respect towards the Sheriff, the Prosecutor or any other individual. With that said, I am guilt of showing my displeasure with the current officials, their tactics, lack of morality, honor and integrity. So it is quite shocking to see that I am being threatened with arrest when I have done nothing to break the law, simply utilizing my right to anonymous free speech which has been upheld by SCOTUS(Supreme Court of the United States) on many occasions.
So here I am once again, stating my displeasure for all to see. Why? So that everyone can see the injustices that occur with the confines of Barbour County; simply put, I am revealing the "Good Ole Boy" mentality that is rampant with these thar hills.
So before I go any further let me state once again for the record; I have a disdain for violence and that is not my intention, though it would seem by the Sheriff's comment that he is feeling threatened. For what? My opinion, displeasure, opposing views and of course my attempt to show the truth. Well if the man behind of the badge is afraid, than I would have to state in jest that he must be afraid of a "mouse fart in the wind!"
All jokes aside, I am at a lost that such antics by an elected official is allowed and at times condoned by many of his followers. Though I should remind everyone that less than 200 votes separated his followers and the many that wanted him out of office. That in itself should clearly show the Sheriff that almost half of the voters were not happy with the current job that he is doing. Yes I do concede he won and a victory is a victory in any counting of votes, even if by one. With that said, it should not still allow the man a free pass, giving him the right to twist the laws any way he so desires.
It is at this point that I should mention that for anyone that is not aware of the issues in Barbour County, to please read the Topix "Barbour County Corruption", it will shed a light on all that has went on. Yes, there are many truths that have been talked about, discussed, pondered, hypothesized and ran into the ground many times over. Just as much gossip as well and a slight reminder; gossip is talk that has not been proven to be truth...YET!
I would also suggest reading all of my posts as anyone can clearly see that I have made no threats towards the Sheriff, Ms. Poling or any other individual. I have kept my posts free of threats and that I the way it needs to be!
The hope behind my post is that the truth will be revealed because without truth, we have no change!!!
