Jeff Peters: We the people

Sheriff Garrett Wiggins was elected to enforce the enacted laws of the land. However, he has decided that he will personally choose which of those laws to enforce. That being the case, it stands to reason that "We The People" who elected him and pay his salary should personally decide which laws we choose to obey. If that sounds a bit like anarchy, then we have only Sheriff Wiggins to thank for planting the seed.

Something for all of us to mull over as we contemplate a petition to recall Sheriff Wiggins for not being able or willing to enforce the laws that he was elected to enforce.
