Bent County Sheriff Gone Rogue?

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?

Shouldn’t there be someone standing up for those being harassed?

More on the case…

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.

    You need to get your facts straight before you go and write an artical like this. McClave is WELL within Bent County lines. So as far as them stepping outside of their boundaries you are wrong there. The Deputies of Bent County put their life on the line every day and night for little cry babies like you. Do you not understand that making traffic stops is part of their job? How many times have you been targeted by these Deputies? Just because you got pulled over one time by that specific Deputy does not mean that you are being harrassed by Bent County Deputies. You should stop trying to make these men look bad for doing their job, and teach your daughter to drive.

    I live in Bent County and I have never had a problem with any of the Deputies there. Just because you are pulled over once does not mean that you are being harrassed by them. Suck it up and get over it. The funny thing is, even after people talk shit about Bent County Deputies they still go back out every night and every day to help protect and serve your community. Even after you bash them on their morals and accuse them of not doing their job, who do you think is going to show up when someone breaks into your house? Or when you get into an accident? They don’t care who you live next to, they don’t care about that stuff. They are out to do a job, a job that not everyone has the balls to do. So the next time you want to talk shit about any law enforcement officer, why don’t you do their job for a while and see what it is all about.

    From the ADMIN – I found it interesting that neither of the two commenters appear to be aware that the family being harassed has had issues over a period of time with the Sheriff officers favoring a neighbor who appears to have some serious mental issues. Both, simply presume these complaints are aimed at the officers for pulling over a traffic violator. Wrong. The complaints are due to harassment of law abiding citizens while abandoning their responsibility toward a citizen that is obviously causing problems. Get a grip boys. Your response simply indicates you’re not very aware of what’s going on in your community.

    How is the Sheriff’s Office favoring this “mentally ill’ neighbor? What is it that you want the Sheriff’s Office to do? Arrest him because of his “serious mental illness”? Last time I checked it wasn’t illegal to be have a mental illness. My comment was not based on a presumption. It was based on how you portrayed your story. How “this family is being harassed by this Deputy because they got stopped for a traffic violation”. How are they being harassed? How have they abandoned their responsibilities? Your friends as well as the neighbor both share the same rights. Just because one is “mentally ill” does not mean that he does not have the right to be treated just like everyone else. Just because your friends does not like the things that this man does, this does not mean that he needs to be removed from his home or whatever else you deem necessary. If you don’t like the way that they do their job, then why don’t you go to school to become a cop and put your ass on the line everyday like they do instead of sitting at your computer talking about how they don’t do their job. And I know very well what happens in my community and I think there are bigger issues out there than a dispute between neighbors.
