Minnesota County Sheriff’s Office: ‘Small Things Can Lead To Big Things’
The Chisago County Sheriff's Office yesterday morning posted about a traffic stop that led to the arrest of a man with a warrant for 3rd-degree murder. The post by the Sheriff's Office seemed to take aim at the recent news that some Minnesota county attorneys wouldn't prosecute any felonies that resulted from minor traffic stops.
The post on its surface is short and to the point.
Last night one of our deputies stopped a car for a minor equipment violation. During the traffic stop he found the driver to be intoxicated...AND had a warrant for murder. In law enforcement, small things can lead to big things. Because a deputy enforced something small last night, your county is a safer place this morning. One in custody.
Basically, the county attorney just announced his office won't uphold the law and won't prosecute those break it. That's absurd, and is a slap in the face to victims of crime. Ramsey County residents be warned: those that break the law won't even get a slap on the wrist—they'll get a high-five from the county attorney and be left to commit more, and more serious offenses. Reduction of crime and public safety for all should be our focus as the crime rate escalates—and this isn't it.
Online reaction to the post from the Chisago County Sheriff's Office over the last 24 hours has been mostly positive.
Chisago County is located just to the north of the 7 county metro area.
