Guess Palm Beach Sheriff Ric Bradshaw forgot that his powers come from the Florida Constitution. It says what he, and others bound by oath to support it.

SECTION 2. Basic rights.—All natural persons, female and male alike, are equal before the law and have inalienable rights, among which are the right to enjoy and defend life and liberty, to pursue happiness, to be rewarded for industry, and to acquire, possess and protect property…

SECTION 4. Freedom of speech and press.—Every person may speak, write and publish sentiments on all subjects but shall be responsible for the abuse of that right. No law shall be passed to restrain or abridge the liberty of speech or of the press.

SECTION 5. Right to assemble.—The people shall have the right peaceably to assemble, to instruct their representatives, and to petition for redress of grievances.

SECTION 12. Searches and seizures.—The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, and against the unreasonable interception of private communications by any means, shall not be violated. No warrant shall be issued except upon probable cause, supported by affidavit, particularly describing the place or places to be searched, the person or persons, thing or things to be seized, the communication to be intercepted, and the nature of evidence to be obtained. This right shall be construed in conformity with the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution, as interpreted by the  United States Supreme Court. Articles or information obtained in violation of this right shall not be admissible in evidence if such articles or information would be inadmissible under decisions of the United States Supreme Court construing the 4th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

SECTION 23. Right of privacy.—Every natural person has the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion into the person’s private life except as otherwise provided herein. This section shall not be construed to limit the public’s right of access to public records and meetings as provided by law.

SECTION 8. Ethics in government.—A public office is a public trust. The people shall have the right to secure and sustain that trust against abuse…

SECTION 1. Governor.—(a) The supreme executive power shall be vested in a governor, who shall be commander-in-chief of all military forces of the state not in active service of the United States. The governor shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed…

Suspensions; filling office during suspensions.—(a) By executive order stating the grounds and filed with the custodian of state records, the governor may suspend from office any state officer not subject to impeachment, any officer of the militia not in the active service of the United States, or any county officer, for malfeasance, misfeasance, neglect of duty, drunkenness, incompetence, permanent inability to perform official duties, or commission of a felony, and may fill the office by appointment for the period of suspension. The suspended officer may at any time before removal be reinstated by the governor.

SECTION 3. Oath: Each eligible citizen upon registering shall subscribe the following: “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will protect and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Florida, and that I am qualified to register as an elector under the Constitution and laws of the State of Florida.”

Article 2 Each state and county officer, before entering upon the duties of the office, shall give bond as required by law, and shall swear or affirm:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support, protect, and defend the Constitution and Government of the United States and of the State of Florida; that I am duly qualified to hold office under the Constitution of the state; and that I will well and faithfully perform the duties of (title of office) on which I am now about to enter. So help me God.”, and thereafter shall devote personal attention to the duties of the office, and continue in office until a successor qualifies

Article 10, SECTION 2. Militia.—(a) The militia shall be composed of all ablebodied inhabitants of the state who are or have declared their intention to become citizens of the United States; and no person because of religious creed or opinion shall be exempted from military duty except upon conditions provided by law.

    What a dumb, stupid idea! It’s reminicent of the block spies in Cuba and the Gestapo in Nazi Germany. Super vigilantes or someone with an ax to grind will set overzealous cops onto innocent neighbors exercising their First Amendment Rights. What State dolt authorised this stupidity?

    Adolph has started his invasion of the U.S. 70 years after his death. It never ceases to amaze me why Government never learns from the mistakes of the past. Example, the administration is now trying to get another housing bubble of unqualified loans going, while we haven’t dug out from the last one yet.

    OK, now that we’ve all gotten educated on the FL Constitution, where is the specific connection to what Sheriff (P)Ric is doing wrong? While I can draw my own conclusions, I want to know who will bring Civil Rights violations against the Nazi Sheriff and based on which, specific, Constitutional violation(s).

    Hey if they want the masses to report on government haters, I would start by reporting on the sheriff and other politicians as the ones who are government haters. Then I would report on the state and federal level politicians as government haters. Turnabout is fair play for this ridiculous piece of drivel called legislation.


    I guess that idea of a government that is to big, inept and costly being reorganized and managed is out……you floridians need to set some of your elected elitist straight about who pays the bills.

    The power to DO evil is a drug to powerful to resist.

    First they’re after guns now they’re spying on us! I’m glad I don’t live in PBC but I’m sure it will spread. When is this Sheriff up for re-election? He took an oath to uphold and defend the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. Fire him!
