This is the kind of man I’d want protecting my streets.
In Louisiana a sheriff’s captain has just made a profound statement in the fight against thugs and criminals and it’s being celebrated in the conservative community the world over.
Rather than be a part of a community that bows to thugs and thug culture, the captain quit, showing that his hand will not be forced by those below the law.
During an impromptu February 29 news conference St. Landry’s Parrish Sheriff’s Captain Clay Higgins resigned his post, citing his refusal to cower to street gangs or “kneel to a…wanna-be black activist.”
His announcement came less than two weeks after Higgins released a video that named alleged members of the Gremlin street gang and referring to them as “animals” and “heathens” whom he was going to hunt down.
He told viewers that the St. Landry Parrish Sheriff’s Office had “arrested ten of these thugs” and made clear that they had “warrants on seven more.” Higgins listed the seven wanted individuals–referring to them as “animals”–and warned they are “most definitely armed and dangerous.”
The precinct had received backlash from that original video, which has now been taken down, and rather than bow to the orders of his sheriff, this captain turned in his badge.
I will not kneel to violent street gangs. I will not kneel to murderers or the parents that raised them. I will not kneel to a discredited, wanna-be, black activist that doesn’t really have the best interest of his people in mind, who just wants to make a profit. I will not kneel to bureaucrats in Baton Rouge, Washington or anywhere else who have forgotten why they wear a badge and who have forgotten who they serve.
Damn straight! If I were a police chief in any capacity, I’d be calling this guy up to come work on my squad. We need more men like him on our police forces. Stop taking crap and arrest thugs! Get them off the streets!
