After Hurricane Irma, Florida law enforcement has done everything in their power to keep their communities safe. Social media has been flooded with warnings regarding safety and shelter, and one Sheriff even made it clear that the crazies needed to keep out. However, liberals have now filed a law suit against the Polk County Sheriff for trying to fulfill his one promise intended to keep his community safe.
Leading up to the highly anticipated Hurricane Irma and the potential dangers the storm may cause, law enforcement sent out many warnings and advice on how to keep everyone safe. However, Sheriff Grady Judd from Polk County issued one warning that instantly triggered liberals, and now, they are suing the hero.
The tweet from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office said:
“If you go to a shelter for #Irma and you have a warrant, we’ll gladly escort you to the safe and secure shelter called the Polk County Jail.
“If you go a shelter for #Irma, be advised: sworn LEOs will be at every shelter, checking IDs. Sex offenders/predators not allowed.
“We cannot and we will not have innocent children in a shelter with sexual offenders & predators. Period.” [Source: Blue Lives Matter]
Judd made it clear that Polk County is going to do everything in their power to keep their shelters safe, even if that means offending some criminals and sympathetic snowflakes along the way. Apparently, his words were too harsh for one attorney by the name of Andres Borreno, who puts the well-being of criminals before the safety and security of kids.
Borreno works for one of the largest pro bono attorney serveries in the county, Nexus Carridade Services, which has filed a law suit against Polk County. Nexus Carridade Services is alleging in their law suit that Polk County and Sheriff Judd “are engaging in a practice of discouraging people from seeking emergency shelter through fear, and conducting unconstitutional pedestrian warrant checks on Floridians in crisis, who are seeking life sustaining shelter from a major Hurricane.”
Nexus Carridade Services specializes in representing criminals who have been arrested on immigration violations and offenses, so it is no surprise this type of safety precaution would set them off. Borreno was attempting to check into a shelter when a deputy under Judd asked to see his ID before allowing him in, which was apparently too much to ask of Borreno, who refused and left.
One would think that, by voluntarily leaving the shelter, none of his constitutional rights were violated since he had the choice and decided to leave. It’s a good thing he represents people for free because no one in their right mind would want to be represented by someone who doesn’t know the first thing about laws.
At no time did the Sheriff’s office say they would not accommodate shelter to any and everyone. If someone has an outstanding warrant, they made it clear they would still shelter them safely, in jail, where they belong. The director of communications for Polk County issued a statement regarding Judd’s Tweets in an attempt to explain any miscommunication.
“We are not allowing sexual predators or offenders into the shelters,” Wilder said, adding that at any point, there are about 8,000 active warrants in Polk County. “If, while manning a shelter, we are made aware of someone with an active warrant during a hurricane, or walking down the street, or in a store, we have to place them under arrest. A storm doesn’t give someone a free pass to violate the law,” he said. [Source: Washington Post]
Leave it to the left to want to put as many people in danger as possible. Polk County is doing their job, trying to keep their community safe, and all this smug lawyer is doing is getting in their way. Women and children, who have possibly lost their homes, are sleeping in these shelters, and the last thing they should have to worry about is a sexual predator trying to prey on their kids. Maybe the loud-mouth lawyer should have been forced to shelter himself with all the criminals he is seeking to protect, and see how he likes it.
