Boulder Sheriff, welcome to civil disobedience

You will have to forgive me for nearly laughing out loud (I mean, LOL) when I read of Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle’s concern regarding a protest tonight that involved blocking traffic on U.S. Highway 36.

The story says Pelle thinks it’s a “no win” situation for police because either the public will be upset if law enforcers do nothing or the protesters and their supporters will be upset if someone uses tear gas or force or something and “we will be scrutinized.”

Isn’t scrutiny of law enforcement precisely the point, FCOL?

Sheriff Pelle seems to not have been paying attention. More from the article:

“The thing is, I’m not sure, exactly, what they are trying to accomplish,” Pelle said.

Now I understand. Our sheriff hasn’t a clue. He needs to get one.

Welcome to Civil Disobedience 101, Sheriff Pelle. Pay attention now, as upsetting as it may be…
