LIBERTY COUNTY COMMISSION

Liberty County, Fla. Sheriff Nick Finch

Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott has suspended the sheriff of the State’s least-populous county after he allegedly set free a man who’d been arrested for possessing a weapon without a permit.
Nick Finch, sheriff of Liberty County near the State’s Alabama-Georgia border, faces a 3rd-degree felony charge for official misconduct after evidently destroying or altering the paper trail that began when one of his deputies brought in a motorist who had two handguns in his car.
The motorist, Floyd Parrish, didn’t have a concealed-carry permit and was subsequently charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon. Car carry is legal in Florida for those without a conceal-carry permit, but the law stipulates such firearms must be securely encased or not readily accessible for immediate use – two stipulations which Parrish allegedly didn’t meet when he was pulled over in Liberty County.
Parrish stayed in jail until Sheriff Finch arrived, accompanied by the suspect’s brother. Finch allegedly spoke to both men about the incident before ordering that the charges be dropped and Parrish be released.
According to the JCFloridian (http://www.jcfloridan.com/news/crime_courts/article_9bbea03c-ce25-11e2-a5a2-001a4bcf6878.html), Finch allegedly told the deputy who’d arrested Parrish that he “believed in 2nd Amendment rights” and instructed jail staff to return his confiscated firearms.

This is one good cop....His arrest is brought to you as a courtesy of those Libs who support the right to abortion, but fails to support the Bill of Rights. I sure hope he is exonerated....

Instead of violating his oath of office and falsifying paperwork, he should have challenged the law itself.

This is ONE side of the story.

There is always another side.

And the truth usually is somewhere in the middle.

Decisions made on incomplete, even sparse, data are seldom correct.
