    Would like to find out what happened. I have the feeling someone got arrested on some BS charges and the Sheriff did the right thing and now someone ratted on him to save face. Just guessing

    Headquarters Marine Corps is preventing me from reading that link. Are there any other ones you might have?

    Another guess is that the man arrested had violated Florida's concealed carry law and the Sherrie released him because he disagreed with the law.

    Interesting. The sheriff is utilizing the same discretion as Obama and Holder in choosing not to prosecute certain crimes. But if he did alter/destroy official records, they might be able to get him on that. I will be watching this case with great interest.

    IMO The Sheriff is as wrong as two left feet. If the Sheriff didnt agree with the arrest, he could have proscessed the subject out of his jail. This leaves a paper trail. That paper trail would have protected him. Even if he was ultimately wrong he would have had some legal shelter. But by changing or destroying existing records (if thats what he did) It appears that he may have had nefarious motive.

    If an officer or a deputy arrest someone in error and his supervisor finds out that person must be released post haste. I cant concieve of a department... Even in florida that dont have a prociedure for this. It probably would have gone better for him if he had also conferred with a states attorney. This mat be a 2nd A issue but local law enforcement dont get to make 2A rulings. Deep in my heart I'm thinking that there are dynamics were not reading about.

    ...this is not a 2A article...this is a crooked sheriff article...he falsified/altered/tampered with arrest records...those charges have nothing to do with 2A, but with a man who'll break the law to get what he wants...

    ...a 2A article might report that he refused to arrest concealed carry people who were somewhere they legally belonged...though politicians wanted him to...

    The Sheriff was fired for destroying the arrest record. That was an unlawful act.

    Well, you forgot that Holder and Obama are above the law. The law is to control the little people.

    There seems to be more going on here than what the public has been told. On the other hand falsifying records has been a cause for terminating since Moses.

    Not sure how people are making this a 2A thing. Sheriff broke the law and altered and destroyed jail records. Had everything to do with doing a favor for a family friend and nothing to do with the second amendment.
    It would be one thing if he had been the one who pulled the guy over, found him to be carrying concealed without a permit and let him go. In this case a guy was arrested and booked by another deputy. The sheriff then decided he was going to cut the guy loose because he was part of a connected family. The sheriff then destroyed and/or altered all records related to the arrest. That is not how our system is supposed to work.

    True, but he did not get to go to the promised land either.

    The sheriffs are elected and hired by the people. How can a governor fire a sheriff, lawfully?

    FDLE is investigating more complaints against the Liberty County Sheriff.

    Nick Finch was arrested for misconduct and suspended from office Tuesday.

    Wednesday, Commissioner Gerald Bailey said FDLE's investigation is ongoing, but he would not specity the number or nature of the additional complaints.

    The governor appointed FDLE agent Carl Causey as interim sheriff for the next 30 days.
    Looks like this "FDLE" organization is responsible for the firing, with the governor merely responsible for the new appointment in the interim.

    The Sheriff was not fired for a 2A dispute, he was fired for destroying legal documents.
