The Interposition of Yet Another Sheriff

Elkhart County, Indiana Sheriff – Brad Rogers – interposed against the feds on behalf of a farmer in his jurisdiction who was being harassed for his distribution of raw milk. The Sheriff (among other actions) wrote to the Department of Justice the following:  “I understand that you have made recent requests to (the farmer) for documents and to appear before a grand jury, and he has had a number of inspections and attempted inspections on his farm within Elkhart County. This is notice that any further attempts to inspect this farm without a warrant signed by a judge, based on probable cause, will result in federal inspectors’ removal or arrest for trespassing by my officers or I. In addition, if any further action is taken by the federal government on (the farmer), while he is in Elkhart County, I will expect that you or federal authorities contact my office prior to such action. I will expect you to forward this information to your federal associates, including the FDA.” Sheriff Brad Rogers, Elkhart County, Indiana    [Click here to read the whole story – and the amazing outcome].
