Sheriff Lewis Is A Perfect Statesman For Our Area


I read the attack on Sheriff Mike Lewis in the Daily Times by Geoff Smoot who called our Sheriff an embarrassment to the County.

I want to take Mr Smoot to task here for many of the things he stated.

He States "We do not go around aping what pleases the emotional responses of the rightwing traitors to our country, who would rather see a violent solution to our problems than attempt to work to find a peaceful solution."

Rightwing Traitors? the people who Sheriff Lewis represents are the Constitution following Americans our forefathers intended us to be, Sheriff Lewis has never stated he prefers Violence to problem solving, that is the scenario you have created in your mind. 


He States "His defenders will be many, because we read their pleas to let them keep their military style toys to hunt Bambi or protect their castle – but remember that what you sow, so shall ye reap."

Military Style Toys to hunt Bambi? The Eastern Shore is a very rural area known for our farmlands, and hunting and fishing are a way of life in our part of the world. Just because you Mr Smoot aren't comfortable with the weapons used doesn't mean you are the one who is correct and we should bend our ways to make people like you feel better.

He States "Lewis would be wise to look to his NRA buddies to place the blame for not having responsible guns laws."

This Country does not need anymore Gun laws we have more than enough on the books, and if you think increasing gun laws is going to stop these type of killings you are not as smart as you claim you are. People are going to kill people it is our nature. Cain murdered his brother with a stone so should we put laws on the books regarding stone shape and size? Guns do not kill people, people kill people. No gun has ever killed someone without human input. Do you think the criminals breaking the law care about breaking another one by having a unregistered firearm? 


While everyone is entitled to their Opinion including yourself, Sheriff Mike Lewis is a perfect representative of our way of life here on the Shore. We are a conservative area that love God and follow the law and the Constitution. I am proud to call Mike Lewis our Sheriff.

I also read the letters in The Daily Times, and I couldn't believe the things they were saying about Mike!! I am not a resident of Salisbury, but I can tell you now that I have the utmost respect for him and for the job that he does. Sheriff Lewis is what great law enforcement looks like, keep up the good work..

Great response......maybe Smoot's son isn't cut out to be a real Police Officer.....There are other professions for him...ECI Correctional Officer, Security at Mall, etc.....I would rather have Sheriff Lewis patrolling my area of Wicomico County!

Smoots son didnt not comment and should not be held accountable for the words of his father. So to attack him seems unfair

He most definitely represents the majority of eastern shore men and women. God bless the USA, God bless out constitution and our bill of rights and Mr Smoot. I don't give a rats ass if you own, or like guns , you don't have to have one. That being said leave my right to own one alone. It's none of your business. Or is it your place to decide for me and my family.

Geoff Smoot could only wish to be half the man Sheriff Mike Lewis is.
Smoot is an Obama idolizer. When you idolize a liar like it only proves that are a man devoid of any and all character, integrity, honesty, and morals.
Smoot is a brainwashed zombie who if his family had any sense would put him in a cage so he stops embarrassing their family name.

I agree

He's a fool. People who misuse (for instance driving drunk, recklessly, etc) automobiles kill more people then guns. If he were a man of his convictions he would be more worried about automobile control. Automobiles kill more than guns do. Not that I expect a peon like Smoot to understand this and even if he did the lying would come out in him and he would not admit it.

Mr. Smoot sounds like a Cuckservative mangina or mentally delusional liberal whose hero is Bruce Jenner.

I wonder if the woman stabbed to death in the Roland Park (an affluent bastion of liberalism) neighborhood of Baltimore City, wished she had a gun or someone nearby did last Friday, the night she took her last breath here on earth?
I heard from a resident of the neighborhood who has had neighbors stopping by since the tragedy Fri night, many of the Roland Park liberals have had a change of heart on the gun issue and are now purchasing them.

Mr. Smoot couldn't write for anybody but the times who share his liberal and idiotic views.As the old addage states-don't piss off the person who prepares or serves your food and I wouldn't be critical of someone who can save your life.As long as I breathe Mike Lewis will get our household votes

For Mr Smoot to say what he said about Mike Lewis spent know him at all. Mike not only one of the best officers around but one of the most caring, and loving man for his town and his country. He is the same in as out of uniform. Very caring and would do anything for anyone. I don't know you Mr Smoot but I don't care to know you if that's how you feel about Mike Lewis. You need to get to know him before speaking against him.

I do not live in Wicomico County, but being in the fire and EMS service, fire police also, I support Sherriff Lewis 110%. Mr Smooth might feel differently if a house invasion was happening at his house and his life in danger and that of his family. If you do not like guns, then please don't own one. If you don't like the sherriff, leave. Move somewhere you feel comfortable. You have no idea of how much the sherriff and deputies put their lives on the line, even for people like you. I believe that very soon we are going to see some serious shit happen in America. The GOP convention is going to be rooted and there will be killings..Odumbass is going to call martial law into effect. Before everything settles down, you will wish you had a weapon. I support Sherriff Lewis and his crew and you should to

If Geoff Smoot had an honest, moral bone in his body he would be speaking the truth. The truth is for the first 2 yrs of Obama's presidency, democrats had control of Congress. The democrats could have passed anything they wanted including "responsible gun laws." To blame Sheriff Lewis, the NRA and "rightwing traitors" is a blatant lie on the part of Geoff Smoot. The only ones to be blamed are the democrats-this of course if you are an honorable person. Geoff Smoot needs to take his disingenuous criticisms to his fellow democrats who are the ONLY ones to blame.

Geoff Smoot is the ONLY embarrassment to any person who uses common sense and intellect. As stated above, the dems had 2 years to pass gun legislation and didn't.

Geoff Smoots then keep on spewing more lies when he falsely claims
"President Obama may be many things to many people, but responsibility for the ability of someone to purchase military equipment and kill police officers is not his fault."

The fact stands Micah Johnson (the officers' murderer) own parents said on national television that he tried seeking help at a VA hospital but was turned away. Johnson was trying to tell someone he needed help. This breakdown which allowed him to make the purchases lies directly on the back of obama and no one else though we shouldn't expect this admission on the part of someone who has difficulties telling the truth about a situation.

If yo feel embarrassed Geoff Smoot then get the hell out of this country and don't let the door hit you in your lying ass. Liars are never productive to not only the community but their own families.

More lies and to think this fabricator named Geoff Smoot was a teacher. He did a disservice to every single student who had the misfortune to ever sit in his classroom.

"Having taught American history for 30 years – and seeing who paid attention in class to the facts of western settlement – I know Lewis was inattentive when we taught how the first thing that settled the towns of the Wild West was removing the guns."

The fact is guns were not removed from the "Wild West." Some of the counties and towns did have gun laws and some even stricter then we have today but not the entire of the Wild West had these laws. To say guns were removed entirely is not true either. They couldn't carry them around concealed or otherwise in these areas but they were not removed entirely.

"President Obama may be many things to many people, but responsibility for the ability of someone to purchase military equipment and kill police officers is not his fault."


Copied from the DT's editorial by Geoff Smoot. Yes Obama bears every single bit of the responsibility.
Obama talked a big talk about banning the purchase of military equipment while campaigning for both senate and the presidency but didn't act on his word. As stated above he could have prevented the ability since the the democrats did have control of Congress for 2 years.

Guess what Dumb A$$... There are already gun laws on the books. To many gun laws that are actually illegal and against 2A and they should be repealed.

It is time for Open Carry in this state and country.

Well put I agree 100%.I prefer Lewis on my side verses yourself. When you have a problem make sure you don't contact his people. See then how it works for you.

As long as Sheriff Lewis is will run for sheriff, he'll have my vote 100%, he represents the right for law abiding Americans to own whatever type of firearm for recreation, hunting or protection from Thugs.

Boys and girls, its seems that this dude Smoot is winning. He has you up tight and blood pressure rising while he laughs. I have learned a long long time ago to avoid anything this yo yo writes or says. Haven't you seen this nut job speak at events that have been televised. Man he is so far out there you couldn't fit him in a straight jacket. Was it said he is or was a educator, I'm sure thankful some can attend private schools, lucky folks. God help us if he taught our "keds".

The bottom lie is that any so called lack of responsible gun control lies directly on the shoulders of the democrats. There isn't a democrat politician who hasn't made it an issue while campaigning since the early 1990's that I know of. Not only did obama have 2 years where Congress was controlled by the democrats but so did Clinton so to blame the NRA or anyone else except the democrats is either sheer stupidity or utter BS.

Smoot does not speak, he farts, because he has his head up his ass. Wyatt Earp himself could not defeat Mike in a reelection bid.

Geoff Smoot hit the nail on the head. President Obama is not responsible for the actions of others. People need to stop blaming Obama for the stupidity that others do/have done. Yes, Micah Johnson and other veterans should have received help from the VA and that's where the fault should be. I'm sure Sheriff Lewis does his job well, as many posts have stated. Mr. Smoot has only stated his opinion just like the rest of us. He's brave to do so while the rest of us have to be anonymous. I respect you Mr. Smoot.

10:21 first of all obama knew of the lack of care going on at the VA's and did nothing. FYI obama oversees every single head of every single fed agency. So yes the lack of care at VA's falls directly on the back of obama. There are NO if's and's or but's about it. You can lie about it, spin it any way your dark heart desires but the fact is whether you like it or not, obama failed as usual to fix a problem that may have lead to this shooters actions.
And as stated above any lack of gun laws you best blame on your idol the liar obama AND NO ONE ELSE. The dems had control of congress for those years and did nothing although they all campaigned on the anti gun platform. The problem is you people are clueless. I bet you didn't even know the dems has control then.

"Constitution following Americans" -- Please tell me how Mike Lewis feels about the 4th amendment?

8:17 no he doesn't have my BP up or am I uptight. I actually enjoy publicly ridiculing and slapping the liars like Geoff Smoot back down to where they belong. Someone needs to do it since I know they are probably dead but his parents failed him so. Never too late to teach old dogs new tricks and that trick being lying has consequences and you will be called out. Liars like Geoff Smoot need to learn that when they continue to lie there are consequences like when people Google their names sites like this come up.

Right guns weren't removed in the Wild West. No one came around and confiscated or took them. That is what remove means. They just couldn't be carried in any form in certain areas. To say they were removed is an out and out lie. But could anyone expect anything other than lies from this Smoot. He's proven time and time over that he is a man without a moral decent bone in his entire body. He lies incessantly like his idol Obama and he should have help for it. He does his family a disservice by lying.

HUH 10:21? It would really help if you knew what you were talking about. What Smoot said was and this is directly copied from the DT's

"President Obama may be many things to many people, but responsibility for the ability of someone to purchase military equipment and kill police officers is not his fault."


This isn't about the actions of others but the ability for someone to get certain items and to this yes Obama is responsible. See above for proof.

THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND OBAMA'S RHETORIC HAS ADDED FUEL TO THE FIRE OF RACISM.HE DEFENDED THE THUG IN FLORIDA TRAVON MARTIN AND THE FERGUSON THUG BEFORE ANY TRUE FACTS WERE KNOWN.HE HAD NO PROBLEM DIRECTING A STAND DOWN IN BENGHAZI BUT HE WILL NOT DARE DEMAND A STAND DOWN TO BLM. SHERIFF LEWIS IS CORRECT--OBAMA HAS BLOOD ON HIS HANDS

BLM's who are Clinton's people, will cause riots and looting and will burn the city of Cleveland next week at the GOP convention. This will then cause the key swing state of Ohio to vote for Donald Trump. Blacks think they are doing smart but in the end they always end up eating their own. The more disruptions they cause or allow to be caused the better off for the GOP and Donald Trump.

Same thing...he is not responsible for actions of others.

There's a saying that a liberal is a conservative who's never been robbed... It's an oversimplification but it is amazing how quickly a small dose of fear will open your eyes to the world you actually live in and not the one you want to live in

I'm glad you have that BP under control. Lol I agree with you, I was only trying to make the point that his crap is not worthy of my time to be exposed to such mess. Like most liberals, they don't make sense, and to be so call educated. Keep on enjoying and I'll read the comments you post to get a sense of what the nut has thrown out there.

Next time you wish to call someone out for being "not as smart as they think they are," try writing in a manner that at least appears to be intellectual. No wonder the Eastern Shore is in as dire straits as it is - people like you don't even have a decent grasp of punctuation or capitalization rules.

I know Mr. Smooth and couldn't agree more. Mike Lewis has the "good ole boy" attitude and I personally believe he is part of the problem. The statement he made recently about a man one of his deputies pulled over - saying he would be a lot worse off if he had fought Mike. I am totally embarrassed of Mike Lewis.

I can't wait until he says yet another ignorant thing and the DoJ gives him a visit.

I have had two occasions when I needed help from the police. One involved inappropriate touching by a medical doctor. The other pertained to a scamming local car detailer. When I called on Mike, he followed through in both matters. Eventually, the doctor lost his license to practice; and, the last I heard, the other guy was still in jail for his misdeeds. Many people would have blown me off--Mike did not. He is a tough guy--but he treats people with respect. I rarely see him but am proud to know him.

But Smoot lied. He blatantly lied. If you couldn't agree with him more then it only proves that you yourself are a filthy excuse for a human being. I can also say that I am very happy to know that I dont' know Smoot. Liars like him are not worthy to breath the same air as me. I am blessed to not know the foulness that is Smoot.
