God Bless our #GoodPolice but the #BadCops Have 2 Go!

SNOHOMISH COUNTY SHERIFF LIED TO ME: Nowhere has the Legislature indicated that the sheriff's powers and duties are limited to the unincorporated areas of the county. Nor is there any statutory language from which such a limitation might be inferred. We note, in addition, that the sheriff at common law was the chief law enforcement officer of the county, and that the office of sheriff retains its common law powers and duties unless modified by the constitution or statutes. Sheriffs, Police, and Constables § 2 (1987); seeState ex rel. Johnston v. Melton, 192 Wash. 379, 388-89, 73 P.2d 1334 (1937); AGO 51-53 No. 322 at 2. We thus conclude that the sheriff has a general duty to enforce state law in both unincorporated and incorporated areas of the county. "the jurisdiction of the sheriff in law enforcement matters normally extends throughout his county including the incorporated areas thereof." [The sheriff's] authority is county wide. He is not restricted by municipal limits. For better protection and for the enforcement of local ordinance[s] the [[Orig. Op. Page 4]] cities and towns have their police departments or their town marshals. Even the state has its highway patrol. Still the authority of the sheriff with his correlative duty remains.

~The Tears of a Strong Woman~

Miss Bren's Law 07-28-2012Reposted today (Sept 18- 2013) 
with just as much meaning today (If not more!) as it had when I wrote this on July, 28 2012... 

A Woman's Tears  do Not make her  Weak-
A Woman's Tears do Not make her Sad-
A Woman's Tears do Not make her  Lost-
A Woman's Tears do not even belong to Her-

They belong to those who are too Weak-Sad-Lost themselves 
To even shed a tear-
So they must express their own Weakness-Sadness-Loss on those strong enough to cry-

"Each Tear"

The Strong and Beautiful~ Miss Mary J Blige

It makes you so much stronger (stronger)
It makes you so much wiser (wiser)
In each tear (in each tear)
And You so close to your dreams and no dreams
No mistake, no heartbreak can't take away you're meant to be
