February 20th Republican Aegis Editorial
The Republican Aegis suggests that the new Harford County Sheriff Jeff Gahler may “need a bit of a reminder about the role of his new office. The sheriffs primary responsibility in Harford County is enforcing the laws. not making them.”
Gahlers primary focus so far has been to advocate changing the law to omit safety firing training for gun permits, changing the law to provide for a warrant-intercept program and changing the law that doesnt allow the Sheriff to moonlight.
The Republican Aegis comments: “…the sheriff needs to be focused on law enforcement, not legislative lobbying in Annapolis….the sheriff needs to be seen having his attention focused on the crime problems that afflict Harford County…The sheriff needs to focus” on crime and safe roads “and be seen through his actions as making them high priorities”
Thomas Jefferson: Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.-+-+-
