Could someone point out the citation in the US Constitution that refers to the establishment of the office of "Sheriff"?
As would be required by the phrase "CONSTITUTIONAL Sheriff"?
Thank you kindly.
Printz basically states that the Feds can't dictate actions (or assign duties) that derive from Federal statutes to County officers (and the Sheriff is the primary LEO at most county levels).
This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding.
