    Default Sheriff Candidate OK With Deadly Force To Stop Abortions

    what the fuck part 2 for today....


    Frank Szabo wants the people of Hillsborough County, N.H., to know that if they elect him as sheriff this year, he will do whatever it takes to stop doctors from performing abortions — even if that means using deadly force.



    In an interview on Wednesday with local television station WMUR, Szabo said he believed sheriffs were granted special powers under the Constitution. That means, he said, he would be empowered to arrest or even use deadly force against doctors for providing legal abortions for women.

    “I would hope that it wouldn’t come to that, as with any situation where someone was in danger,” Szabo said. “But again, specifically talking about elective abortions and late term abortions, that is an act that needs to be stopped.”

    He clarified it did not apply to cases in which the mother’s life was in danger. “That’s a medical decision. That’s out of the area I’m talking about,” he said.

    It’s not clear what kind of chance Szabo has at winning the race. He claims endorsements from Jack Kimball, the former chairman of the state Republican Party, as well as multiple tea party groups. But WMUR reported that the state’s House speaker was already calling for Szabo to drop out of the race after his comments surfaced.

    Szabo said he believed sheriffs are given enormous authority under his interpretation of the Constitution. When pressed about what he would do if a prosecutor declined to charge a doctor he arrested, he said the answer was simple.

    “If they choose not to do their duty and uphold the Constitution,” Szabo said, “they can be brought up on charges before what’s called a citizen’s grand jury, which is something that’s not that common in the United States. But again, it is something based in common law that’s within the purview of the county sheriff.”

    Sooo...

    If a rape victim wants to get an abortion, this guy is going to swoop in and "save the day", slap the rape victim in the head with a bible and blow the doctors head off? All in the name of the constitution?

    Here's my question...

    In which constitution, state or federal, does it say that the local, state or federal government has the right to decide what a woman can or cannot do with her body.

    seriously...

    WHAT THE FUCK!?!?

    I wonder if someone is willing to use deadly force to ensure he doesn't get elected.

    Just sayin'

    Agreed. Its ironic to hear all of these politicians say that we are the greatest nation in the world and that god will bless us.

    What they dont realize is that we have been the ass end of every joke for the past 20+ years and god is probably doing us a favor by looking the other way.

    This is typical OTT hyperbole. This guy knows damn well he's NOT going to arrest ANYBODY for procuring or performing a legal abortion.


    Szabo said he believed sheriffs are given enormous authority under his interpretation of the Constitution.

    He doesn't get to decide what is constitutional.

    Pandering at it's worst.

    How is this still an issue?

    If we can't even get over the abortion debate, how in the hell are we going to fix our real problems?

    The answer, we probably won't.

    If all these right wing nut jobs would quit spending so much effort on the legality issue, and just discuss their position politely and respectfully on a morality basis, they would have much furthered their cause.

    But what they have done is convert guys like me who were on the fence about the issue to saying "no way do I won't those fuck bag dumb asses making ANY type of decision, about ANYTHING."
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    Emperor Brett - "I can't believe you guys are analyzing song-by-song Van Halen III? What next, analyzing the script of Stroker Ace looking for some shred of Citizen Kane?"

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Yep. We sure have. The sad thing is they have to run by party. Here in my county we have a sheriff that is young, energetic, is out in the community. He wears his uniform everyday, not a suit & tie. He'll run radar, bust bad guys, and respond to accident scenes FROM HIS OFFICE of he's the closest to the call. Crime in the county is down in the last 4 years. Yet some of the citizens want him out simply because he's a democrat.

    In my opinion, that position shouldn't have party affiliation. It should be a non-partisan position where you're job performance is the only factor of getting elected or re-elected.

    that's interesting on a couple of fronts. Up here, we don't vote for sheriff or judges or anything like that. But more importantly, there's no party affiliation for any municipal elections (only federal and provincial elections).

    I actually wouldn't mind voting for judges (or more importantly being able to vote out soft judges) but a job like police chief I think needs to be completely out of politics.
