Sunday morning coffee discussion went downhill fast, as I realized that once again, Bent County Sheriff’s officer was out of line on the job. While Sheriffs and Sheriff Departments all over the state stand in the gap protecting our freedom and liberty, the Sheriff Department in Bent County appears to have gone rogue, targeting citizens and diving over the edge of harassment in some cases. Is this where the people of Bent County want to go?
Law Abiding Citizens in the county feel like they’ve been targeted by specific officers in the department, for no reason. As well they should! From all appearances, the officers have chosen to focus on harassing law abiding citizens instead of doing the work necessary to put a criminal behind bars. WHY are they protecting a man who shows every indication of having emotional issues, if not dangerous insanity issues, by tormenting and harassing law abiding citizens?
We were coming back from the springs this morning at 1:00 am we passed the western c-store in las animas. We all had different cars, we had traded a car off. Deputy Nesslage was sitting at the gas pumps talking to someone. Outside of Hasty he flew by us & right before the turn to go into McClave he had my oldest daughter pulled over, she just happened to be driving our truck. Now I really feel like we are being targeted by the sheriff’s office.
This from local people, home owners who live in the county. When will it stop?
Only the people can stop it. Speak up. THIS may be YOU, next. What then? The Bent County Sheriff’s office has stepped outside their boundaries as reported in this article , so you already know county lines mean nothing. When law enforcement agencies target law abiding citizens, the citizens around them MUST speak up. Be counted. Be sure your voice is heard.
