Thread: CA Sheriff strips US Forestry enforcement authority

  1. Default CA Sheriff strips US Forestry enforcement authority

    News outlets in El Dorado County, California, report that a county sheriff has stripped state law enforcement authority from the US Forestry Service.

    Sheriff John D’Agostini made the move in response to a high number of complaints coming to his office. He will not go into details about the complaints received, but says he gave the US Forestry Service plenty of opportunity to respond to the complaints.

    “The U.S. Forest Service, after many attempts and given many opportunities, has failed to meet that standard.”

    The sheriff has sent a letter to the US Forestry Service stating officers will no longer be able to enforce state law in his county.

    “The U.S. Forest Service, after many attempts and given many opportunities, has failed to meet that standard.”

    CBS 13 in Sacramento contacted a law professor to ask him if the sheriff’s actions are legal.

    “Looks to me as though the sheriff can do this,” he said. “They don’t have state powers in the first place, but essentially the sheriff can deputize individuals to have authority in his or her jurisdiction.”

    Fact: federal agencies do not have state powers. Due to the Constitution’s structure of dual sovereignty, the feds have no authority to enforce state laws. Furthermore, states cannot be compelled to enforce federal laws.

    This is a bold move on the part of the sheriff, or is he just doing his duty? I'm for states rights as the fed does not have state powers.
    We are not the product of our environment, we are the result of ourselves.

    I can't support this Sheriff without knowing the nature of the complaints.

    The nature of the complaints shouldnt matter. Either he has the lawful right to do this or he doesnt.
