These officers were publicly accused, the source is the fact that you know who they are.
Your leftist buddies made a huge enough deal about it that the sheriff’s office agreed to investigate the accusation, the source is that you know about it.
The following analysis of what happened next is sourced from me as I am the only person you have ever met with common sense.
With all of your bloodthirsty buddies panting for destruction the Sheriff’s department had a few choices.
They could serve up their innocent officers as sacrificial lambs and move the focus to another jurisdiction for prosecution; this would have gone nowhere and ruined the lives of the innocent officers so that idea was thankfully rejected.
They could have just gone full Trump and said loudly “my officers are guilty of nothing but doing their job, it is not a crime to talk to ICE and it never has been; to those who want the law to say otherwise I say get it changed or shut the hell up”. They would be heroes if they had decided on this course but the sheriff’s departments are political and that stamps out courage in leadership most of the time.
So they chose to “split the baby”, they would say “oops, we forgot to train our officers about this 30 year old law but we get this all straightened out going forward”
I am sure they patted themselves on the back for this plan, they spared their officers from an unjust witch hunt and appeased your terrorist buddies enough to send them away; BIG WIN!
Except that this story was a big story being followed by law enforcement all over Oregon, when they heard this apparent interpretation of the law it meant that every officer in Oregon would be expected to uphold this ridiculous interpretation or face your judicial terrorist buddies coming after them next; one fire was put out by this spin job but a larger one was ignited.
Now the state officers are seeking to protect themselves from the consequences of those who passed the buck; they want the law repealed or an official clarification to spare themselves from you guys.
That is what happened, no laws were broken and no punishments were assigned, your entire case is based on the PR job from one sheriff’s dept who lacked the courage to say “shut up stupid” to a bunch of judicial terrorists looking to spit on the innocent jn ordet to reward the guilty.
By the way, where is that “Judge that found these officers broke the law” that you mentioned?
Just kidding, we both know you made that up because all of the facts and all reason screams the opposite of your position.
