Open Letter to the Citizens of Gloucester County Virginia
"The Land of the Life Worth Living?"
The Virginia Constitution was written for us to limit the government intrusion into our lives. Have you ever read the Constitution of the United States? How about the Constitution of Virginia?
Listening to the Sheriff speak during the Board of Supervisors meeting last week. Sheriff Warren said when asked about escorting the judges that they only have one shift per day and it would require overtime to escort judges to their cars. If the sheriff’s office is only operating one shift per day who is keeping us safe when they are not on duty? Does this explain the crimes at night? Why do we see sheriff’s vehicles on the road and at local businesses all hours day and night? Is this for personal errands? When is a good time to call to ensure we will get a response or someone will answer the phone?
Maybe we should consider doing away with the Sheriff’s Department and getting a professional Police Force? One that is there to ensure the rule of law is obeyed and enforced; not an organization that serves at the Sheriff’s convenience? This would help to make it "The Land of the Life Worth Living?"
I am not a lawyer and cannot give legal advice. Our founding fathers used common sense and Christian scripture when establishing our founding documents.

P.S. "The nature of the encroachment upon American constitution is such, as to grow every day more and more encroaching. Like a cancer; it eats faster and faster every hour. The revenue creates pensioners, and the pensioners urge for more revenue. The people grow less steady, spirited and virtuous, the seekers more numerous and more corrupt, and every day increases the circles of their dependents and expectants, until virtue, integrity, public spirit, simplicity and frugality become the objects of ridicule and scorn, and vanity, luxury, foppery, selfishness, meanness, and downright venality swallow up the whole of society." --John Adams, to the Inhabitants of the Colony of Massachusetts Bay, 1775
