Deputies Won’t Receive Bulletproof Vests Because Sheriff Doesn’t Want To Work With ICE
Intentionally putting another’s life in jeopardy for political purposes most definitely is deserving of a long prison sentence

Once again Liberals have no concern for the welfare of Americans. Having the deputies shot and killed is better than deporting an illegal.’
Seniorita Hernandez doesn’t want to comply with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement? Surprise, surprise. Stop allowing multi-national third world people and advocates to populate the ranks of our administrations! Doing so is national suicide.
Sheriffs are supposed to enforce the law, that is their job. I assume that this sheriff took an oath to that effect after she was elected. Now she refuses to sign a letter pledging to enforce the law. Is this not grounds for impeachment? A sheriff does not have the right to decide which laws to enforce and which ones to ignore. This sheriff is the one making a political statement, not the governor.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced in January that Texas would fund $23 million in grants to purchase new vests for approximately 450 law enforcement agencies around the state. KXAN-TV reports:
Travis County did not apply for the grant because one condition from the governor’s office required the agency to “sign a letter confirming compliance with ICE detainer requests both now and during the grant term of at least one year,” according to Travis County Commissioner’s Court records.
The recommendations from the state said, “It is anticipated the number of fatal shootings will be reduced by equipping more officers with type III & IV body armor.”
Intentionally putting another’s life in jeopardy for political purposes most definitely is deserving of a long prison sentence – she has arguably committed an act of domestic terrorism, by its very definition.
If Sheriff Hernandez loses an officer whose life could have been saved by one of these vests, I hope there is a special place in HeII for her. I also hope there is someone in the officer’s family willing to send her there prematurely.
She is playing politics with these men’s lives. But then again, it is not unlike her Washington counterparts who lets the Government shut down over the DACA illegal immigrants. These Democrats are firmly in it for the manufacture of immigrant voters.

All I can come up with is Travis county folk elected a damn fool for sheriff
|Fighting the good fight|
Yes, she's a damn fool. Luckily, there are other avenues for grant money for vests, so hopefully they can still acquire them through another route.
And it sounds like the Texas grant is specifically for Level III and IV armor, which is supplemental hard armor plates for tactical/active shooter-style situations. Not the soft body armor that they almost certainly already have and wear every day.
|Yeah, that M14 video guy...|
It would also appear that existing deputies have vests already, implying that they simply need to keep using their old stuff.
The Sheriff needs to go.

Travis County. Nuf said.
|Not really from Vienna|
Travis county property taxes being what they are, I would think that the county could equip their LEOs with new vests.
If that was a priority for them. Which it obviously isn't.

too mean to quit!

Name says a lot.
If her policies cause the loss of an officer's life she should be tried for voluntary manslaughter. If not complicit in 1st degree murder.

The story is a little misleading. The grant is for rifle rated plate carriers not your daily soft body armour.
Either way she is still a royal @unt.
There is no cure for stupidity, you either die from it or with it.

Don't know much about our current interim Sheriff, but the previous one was awful!
Texan by choice, not accident of birth
When they ask me, "Paper or plastic?" I just say, "Doesn't matter to me. I am bi-sacksual."
The Sheriff's position on this issue is reprehensible, however, I feel that anyone working in LE today who doesn't wear a vest merely because it it not provided is taking a very short-sighted viewpoint.
Vests were relatively new when I began working and when I found out that they were not provided, I researched, sought out and purchased my own. Several of the guys hired at the same time I was followed suit and after one was shot in the abdomen while working secondary, there was a sudden increase in interest from a large number of the more senior officers. It's all about how much your life is worth to you.
Or even plates for that matter.
I bet the K9's get vests.
And the 5th Circuit found SB4 legit.
