The sheriff in Alabama's most populous county may call for the National Guard to help maintain order, a spokesman said Tuesday, as a judge cleared the way for cuts in the sheriff's budget and lawmakers reached a compromise they hope will end the budget crisis.
"I think we have a compromise bill that can pass the House and Senate," said Rep. John Rogers, D-Birmingham. "I don't like it, nobody likes it. But we've got to do it."
That is your low life motherfucking representation bailing the fuck out of their responsibilities and paving the way for a Constitutional crisis.
A spokesman for Hale, Randy Christian, said the sheriff told Riley after the ruling that state assistance may be needed to perform basic law enforcement tasks once the department's current funding is exhausted in early September.
"We will certainly be looking at calling in the National Guard," said Christian.
What else is there for me to say?
This is illegal, they fucking know it, they are going to do it anyway and I am glad I don't live in Alabama and have useless fucking idiots as my representatives.
So, let me get this through my head, one county in Alabama can't find the funding for their police budget, so they want the rest of the State of Alabama to pay for the National Guard to take over the police departments duties, against Federal Law.
Brilliant move you stupid fucks. I have been waiting for some idiot to try and pull this off, leave it to Alabama.According to this , some brilliant Constitutional tactician is trying to bluff his way through an economic crisis with several facets, chief of those being this.
Something stinks all right.
This is out of context but I just can;t fucking help myself,
The lawmakers' compromise included a tax bill to replace millions in revenues lost when courts blocked an old tax and an accountability provision requiring a manager to oversee county government operations.
County Commission President Bettye Fine Collins said she doubted the commission would support the legislative compromise since lawyers already have questioned its constitutionality.
"It wouldn't make sense to support it since we would likely be right back where we are now," Collins said in an interview.
Lawmakers said the commission doesn't have to go along, however.
"I can get this through without them," said Rogers.
Somebody please, sue their fucking asses off and cut this shit off at the head.
Make an example out of these idiots, Right, The Fuck, Now.
Stomp this back to the day Posse Comitatus was brought into law, with prejudice.
H/T Raw Story.
