“You Shoot at the Police, Expect us to Shoot Back,” Says Ohio Sheriff

The following is a transcript of Todd’s morning radio commentary. 

Hello Americans. I’m Todd Starnes with news and commentary next.

The sheriff of Butler County, Ohio has a message for the anarchists and Black Lives Matter protesters.

“You shoot at the police, expect us to shoot back,” Sheriff Richard Jones said in a press release.

In recent days police officers have been severely injured by bricks and water bottles filled with concrete in Portland. Police have been targeted by gunfire in Chicago and New York City. Lasers in Seattle.

Sheriff Jones says violence against his officers will not be tolerated.

“I will not allow my deputies or any law enforcement officer in Butler County to take the abuse I have seen over the past several months,” he said. “If you come to this county expecting a free pass to harm one of my men or women in uniform keep in mind, nothing in life is free.”

The sheriff also sent word to Ohio’s governor that his officers would not be enforcing mask ordinances.

“Let the health department make all these rules and let them enforce these. They can get a little yellow light on their car and ride around in it and give people tickets. If that’s what they wanna do, fine. They’ll need the police in the end because people’s (sic) getting angry,” Jones said.

I like this sheriff.
