Sheriff Lewis Statement On Loss Of Officers Yesterday In Harford County

Tonight, I sit here in disbelief over the senseless executions of two MD Sheriff's Deputies earlier today.  These deputies, both veterans of the Harford County Sheriff's Office, were gunned down by a convicted felon, armed with a handgun, and wanted on warrants in two states.  Please pray for these brave men and their families as Sheriff Jeff Gahler prepares to bury these husbands, brothers, sons and daddies.  Please continue to pray for them.

Yes, each law enforcement officer volunteered for this job.  Yes, we knew the dangers of this job.  But, what we didn't know is that the left-leaning liberal lawmakers in Annapolis would turn their backs on the very ones who are sworn to protect them and their families.  Serving as co-chair of our legislative committee, I've had a front row seat to proposed legislation being introduced this year which severely limits our ability to do our jobs.  To add insult to injury, earlier this week, Maryland's democratically controlled legislature voted to override Governor Hogan's veto restoring convicted felons' immediate voting rights, even before they've successfully completed their parole and probation.  Why?  So the democrats will have the desired results in both local and state elections.  As a result, It is now predicted that in just a few weeks, at least twenty thousand of those convicted felons will vote for a new Baltimore Mayor.

God Bless the United States of America!!!!

So paroled felons, who have yet to get their voting rights back, caused this shooting? Get over yourself Lewis. This is not the right time and place to make a political statement. Lewis is just trying to get attention so he'll get back on Hannity.

PS Remember the last time he was on there? It was after that Illinois Cop was found shot and Lewis was on Hannity talking about how all cops have a bulls eye on their back. Funny, i never heard a retraction of that statement after it was found the officer committed suicide after being found out to be dirty

Regardless of the incident in Illinois, his statement was and still is correct...Police Officers are targeted, they are in a sense handcuffed and restricted in how they perform their duties...this is what happens when society finds fault and gives criminals more rights than any other person on the street!!!! I support the thoughts of Sheriff Lewis!

As a former law enforcement officer I am sickened by the senseless killing of the two deputies and I am sure all officers feel the same way. I am taken back by Lewis using this situation to make his political views known. Hey Mike, not the time, shame on you.

Patti Harris said...

as the wife and Mother of Law Enforcement Officers I agree with what Sheriff Lewis has said. The Law Enforcement Community has a big bulls eye on their backs. Yesterday proves that point. The first deputy ask the subject "how he was today" and got shot in the head for it. we are loosing to many Police officer. In the past 6 days we have lost 8 Police Officers to shootings. Yes I said 8. That is 9 too many! We should never fear for the lives of the brave men and women who put on a badge and gun to protect us. The fact that our Government minus Governor Hogan does not stand up and say or do anything about Officers being killed is Sickening. Let a young person be killed by a "cop" and our Piece of shit President is all over it. Yet when an Officer is killed in the line of duty the POTUS never opens his mouth!. If you do not support our Law Enforcement (that is your choice) Don't say anything negative to me about them. The first two things I see when you say something negative is 1... You are a Democ RAT and 2 you are either a criminal or live with 1.
Oh and by the way I do not hide behind Anonymous like the rest of you cowards!

Thank You to all Law Enforcement Officers, for without your Bravery this world would be in a big mess.

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends. -John 15:13

Did you say the same about the Idiot Omalley who was in office how many years? Hogan is pro cop so you're comment is BS.

Hey patti, I agree with much of what you say, I am saying Lewis does not need to put his political views out, we lost two officers, maybe he should be supporting the families of the officers instead of patting himself on the back, he is a legend in his own mind.

Patti Harris said...

Owe'Malley is trash and has always been trash. That is what DemocRATS do they hate everything except their own agendas. and spending other peoples money on foolish BS.
Hogan should be Pro "cop". The Police Officers deserve to be honored and appreciated. If you do not like cops then just keep it to yourself. They are out their keeping you safe, along with the rest of us. Oh and don't hide behind Anonymous, that just makes you look like a COWARD!. If you do not stand with the Law enforcement, be my guest a stand in front of them! That way I know my hubby and son will be safe.

All eight officers have been shot and killed in the past 24 days. Five of these brave men were shot and killed in the line of duty in just the last two days.

Eight officers gunned down doing their jobs for the people of the United States. Eight officers who only wanted to do their jobs and go home to their families. Eight brave Americans gunned down merely because they wear a uniform.

It is time for the Congress to get serious about this senseless violence in this country and pass meaningful legislation that not only protects the rights of every citizen but also recognizes that law enforcement officers are citizens and deserve the protection that they are counted on to preserve.

I again call on Congress to pass Hate Crime Legislation that will enhance the penalty for crimes against a specific class of citizens: those who wear a uniform and badge and who had vowed to protect these rights for others.

I am calling on all law enforcement officers and citizens to write their Congressmen and demand that our law enforcement community be given the same rights as other protected classes of persons who are victims of crimes based on the offender’s bias.

Enough is Enough America.

I don't know of 1 Leo who hates Sheriff Lewis. I am friends with many of them. I am also friends with Mike. He is a part of the MSP first and foremost. As for Gov. Hogan, we have never had a Governor who backed our Law enforcement the way he does. I do not have any anger issues. I am just sick and tired of people talking bad about Police Officers. there is less than 1% bad and over 99 % good Cops. Yet we only hear about the bad, and that is just from the media. Then you add every Tom, Dick and Jane into the mix who got pulled over and gave the Officer a hard time and wow, every Cop is now bad. I never worried when my Hubby was a Police Officer, he is now retired. I never worried when my son became a MD State Trooper 8 yrs ago. I worry daily now because Police officers are being killed just because they wear the Uniform. We have had 8 Officers killed in just over 30 hours in the USA.

Patti Harris, I guess you and I are the only ones not afraid to stand by our comments.

The 2 Harford County officers were shot by a man who knew there were warrants out for his arrest, both here and in FL. He committed senseless killings. He was also shot by officers, and I, personally, am glad to know he was shot and killed by officers before he could hurt or kill anyone else.
Northern Harford County was a wonderful place to grow up. I am on my 50's and never before heard of a police officer being killed in the line of duty there.
This has shaken Harford Countians to their very core.
Anyone who wants to use this event to promote ANY agenda, except protecting our officers, should be ashamed of themselves. All of our officers deserve our support, respect and help.

I agree w/Sheriff Lewis. What he said needs to be said and it needs to be said often. One thing everyone can be absolutely certain of and that is the families, friends and co workers are not offended by this and are thinking exactly the same thing. This country has sunk so low and one reason is because everyone's offended by this and that. Get over it. By ignoring the fact that some have become anti cop is another dead cop and does a disservice to these brave murdered deputies. They would want it said. They would want the message out and out loud and clear. Getting on THEIR SIDE no matter the circumstances is what they would want and not ignoring the facts.

Amen Patti! I take one exception and that is Obama. I personally am glad he doesn't say anything. He is evil. Decent folks wouldn't breath the air of such a nasty foul lying perverse ghetto hustler as Obama. Obama is beneath the members of our LE forces. Obama encourages lawlessness and the only thing more foul than him are those who support him which enables he the devil here on earth to continue his dirty work.

Drop the tired old "People can't stand a black for for shit" lie. FYI Einstein the people who hate Obama love Dr Ben Carson, Lt Col Allen West, Herman Cain, SC Rep Tim Scott, MD Lt Gov Boyd Rutherford, former MD Lt Gov Michael Steel. Shall I continue, the list is endless. People can't stand Obama because he is a pathological liar who has accomplished nothing-his entire life and if you support him oh how you need to take a good long look in a mirror. Not only that you need to immediately drop to your knees and beg, beg forgiveness from God who sees and doesn't like what is in your heart. God does not like those who enable liars like Obama. No He does not and if you don't repent now when judgement day comes you ARE going to be one sorry soul. Yes you are! You can be the best person in the world on the outside, never saying harsh words, cursing, going to church regularly BUT if you support and enable a liar you are done-finished in the eyes of God Almighty because He sees what is really in your heart and if you support a liar you have evil in your heart no matter how good you are pretending to be.

STOP saying obama is 1/2 white for Heavens Sakes! Let the blacks claim him and have him. Whites have enough of their own lying losers in their race. The last thing they need is Obama.

8:32 I am going to address you once and once only and after that you are dismissed. I don't do those of a low class level and your vulgar and crude language shows you are beneath me. Decent people do not like Obama. It has nothing to do w/race. For one, he is a pathological liar and i your defense of him only proves to show more of your own many character flaws. Decent people do not ever defend someone who lies so much. Also President Bush could very much so hold a conversation. It's Obama who before he utters every single word inserts "ah" "ah" "ah" "ah" "ah." He sounds like something a rat dragged out of The Hood.

Anonymous said...

Seriously 8:32 do you realize how ridiculous you sound? Those who can't stand Obama do like Dr Carson and they other black men named above. Do you even know who they are? Have you even heard about them, read about them? That's the problem with low information people. They are real good at running that mouth but only know how to talk nonsense.

Anonymous said...

The problem with most blacks is, they see everything as color. As a whole they've not been able to move away from this. Their voting habits are proof positive of this. Whites are overwhelmingly colorblind and a lot have a tenancy to want to see everyone succeed no matter their race or religion as long as they are good, honest hard working Americans. Blacks don't like good decent honest successful men like Dr Ben Carson. It's shameful how they malign and marginalize the successes of such great black men as Dr Carson.

The white side is fighting against the black side you know good and bad.

100% correct.

It's not the races that are fighting but good and evil. The good is sick of and is fighting the nasty politicians who promote immoral behavior, lawlessness, dishonesty, and irresponsibility. Politicians who want everyone to think alike and be people who aren't allowed to think differently as far as who they will accept and who they won't.

This is not true. The Trump enterprises exist and exist only because there used to be a strong middle class. The enterprises' existence still depend solely on a strong middle class. While the penthouses and executive suites are top dollar, most of the hotel rooms are geared and priced for middle class America. If doubtful compare prices at his NY hotel to others in Manhattan. There is nothing overly expensive about them. Las Vegas too. As far as the luxury condos he sells, if not for the middle class buying the goods and using the services of most of those who purchase the condos they wouldn't be able to afford them. The money trickles up and it trickles down for an economy to be in a good self sustainable position. To say that the rich don't care about others esp those not wealthy only proves one lacks in logic and reasoning skills.

For real! Get off the "black man" nonsense. Whenever some people can't come up with a sound defense of a black person sure as a new day will dawn you come up with the race card. It has gotten old. Exactly as in comment above people who dislike Obama adored Dr Carson and the others. So what do you have to say about that! HUH? People don't like Obama because he is dishonest and promotes all that is evil and your attempted poor nonsense defense of him (because he is a black man) shows what is in your heart and it's not good! How can you support a liar like him? You do know it is a sin don't you? God sees what is in your heart and not what you are pretending to be. You do know that don't you? While I expect an answer I doubt if I'll get one. You are real good at running your mouth but when it comes to backing it up you cowards run and hide!
