"We don't know which homeowner shot at [Harris]. I guess they think that they did something wrong, which they did not,” Johnson said. “If somebody is breaking into your house, you’re more than welcome to shoot at them in Santa Rosa County. We prefer that you do, actually.”

Johnson added, "Whoever that was, you're not in trouble. Come see us. We have a gun safety class we put on every other Saturday, and if you take that, you’ll shoot a lot better and hopefully save the taxpayers money.”

He also noted that "if somebody's breaking into your house, you've got all the right in the world to defend yourself. Of course [Harris] didn't get hit, and now we've gotta pay for him."

Spelled Sheriff wrong in the title I see

I don't buy that BS for one second. Turn yourself in so we can prosecute your butt.
I actually like the TV " announcements" when there are Convicts on the loose Grady will be on TV live saying , "We have more bullets than you do, you need to turn yourself in or say goodbye to any relatives....

No trust in any of them whatsoever. They had my trust when I was younger and they lost it, or I just got wiser.
Never believe a lawyer unless he has cashed the check. Never believe a cop ever.

I trust many cops, never had a reason not to, most are personal friends or relatives. Most are not a bum with a badge... I have a relative that was a dare officer, he tried his best to help stop the problems before they got started...

So, if I held out my hand to hold you from falling off a bridge or building, you wouldn't trust me ?

Or my favorite he said years ago when a reporter asked him why they shot the perp 75 times ( Don't remember the actual # but it was a lot ) and he replied because we ran out of bullets or we would have shot him a lot more !

Edit: Found the original story but there is a YouTube video of the press conference.

Sounds like you had a negative experience with a LEO. Any encounter i had i was respectful, even a little humorous. Let's defund 70bigblockdodge. It's a joke dude, lighten up.

what I have found over the years is that cops are like everyone else.....there are good ones and bad ones. We all need the good ones no question. and like everything else we can do without the bad but sometimes theres not much choice and you get the bad.

I am on the side of LE, but I would never consent to a search of my vehicle. There was a sheriff in Florida that was busted for planting drugs on vehicles he stopped, and searched with the owners consent, dogs often signal false drug discoveries.

I'm assuming that you have a badge. Your hand sure, maybe. Your mouth no.

If it was just one that would be great. I've been a owner operator/truck driver for 35 years, yes I have up a majority of my civil liberties when I got a CDL, so I guess you could say I brought it on myself.
I get what the sheriff is saying, but if they don't know who I am that good with me. I've been refunded for a long, long time. No I don't believe we should defund the police or any other nonsense like that. They have a job, I choose not to contribute or interact with them in any way.
Come on by for a unwanted visit, I will not call 911.

Make sure you call the authorities in your area so they can note to ignore any 911 call, police, fire, and EMS you may need.
