“The people in Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said in a press briefing Monday, according to Fox 13.
Sheriff Judd said there he does not believe Polk County residents were the ones creating problems.
He said there’s a difference between a protester and a rioter and rioting will not be accepted.
“We are going to hunt you down and lock you up if you engage in any criminal conduct.”
“I would tell them, if you value your life, they probably shouldn’t do that in Polk County. Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns, and they’re going to be in their homes tonight with their guns loaded, and if you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns. So, leave the community alone,” Judd said.
The sheriff encouraged anyone wishing to express their First Amendment right to free speech to keep the focus on George Floyd, who Judd said was a victim who should be honored.

I wonder if there are more guns or printers in Polk county? I know that paper, even sticky labels, are cheaper than bullets. I wonder how many pictures of George will it take before cops figure out they are assholes, become depressed, and shoot themselves (with one of those many guns).

Police joined the protesters Monday night, expressing their own consternation over Floyd’s death. “What happened, in this case, offends us just as much as it does anyone else,” Auburndale Police Chief Andy Ray said. “There’s no explanation, it doesn’t make any sense to us at all.”
Earlier Monday, Sheriff Grady Judd joined Lakeland PD to recap the events in Polk County over the weekend that prompted the curfew and state of emergency. The Lakeland Police Department said a planned protest Sunday of about 100 people in Munn Park was peaceful and lawful Sunday. The group moved to the police station, which continued with no issues. However, some of those involved split off from the group and began blocking traffic at Florida Boulevard, which turned from citizens expressing their first amendment right to unlawful activity.
Lakeland PD said officers tried to disperse the crowd, but the sheriff’s office was called in to help clear the intersection.
So, maybe 50 people blocked an intersection & the local cops called the sheriffs office to help get rid of the protesters.
And police had some super-secret information that they were going to be attacked, which is what brought on all the tough talk, but nobody showed up to do the deed. OMG OMG
Bunch of tough talk you copied there, but so far as I can see from reading the article nothing much happened in lakeland. what’s the point?
A little more FUD for the mix, what could it hurt?
