"We beg no longer; we entreat no more; we petition no more. We defy them!" - William Jennings Bryan, 1896
Could not the Sheriffs prove extortion and arrest these folks?!?
It's only extortion when common folk do it. It's business as usual when politicians do it.
All the sheriffs knew what the job paid when they ran for office. And now they might cave on their principals for a f#@king dollar. I hope not. Stand firm , act like a man for pete's sake
