So in other words you have not bothered to read the bill either. Because if you did you would know that this has nothing to do with Sheriffs other than the fact they can request assistance from a SS agent if they are in the area where before the SS could not help. It also says if you are being beaten to death in the front of SS agent that they would have the power to arrest your attacker and turn them over to local law enforcement instead of now where they would they could only call the cops and wait. Do you people really just buy anything without the slighest idea that maybe you should see if its true before you run with it?edit on 5-4-2013 by MrSpad because: (no reason given)

They find it necessary to allow federal agents to assume the role of peace officers while in their state? Necessary?

[color=#9bd060]If you read the bill and your Secret Service FAQ carefully, you will see that the FAQ addresses violations of federal law, and the bill addresses violations of nonfederal law.
Make arrests without warrants for any offense against the United States committed in their presence, [color=#9caff7]or for any felony recognizable under the laws of the United States if they have reasonable grounds to believe that the person to be arrested has committed such felony.
since the Colorado bill [color=#ffeb90]only [color=#ffe15b]empowers [color=#ffeb90]the USSS to make arrests for nonfederal crimes (they already have arrest authority for Federal crimes and Colorado has no authority to make Federal law), and requires the arrested persons to be surrendered to Colorado (since they're being arrested for state crimes, and the Federal government couldn't care less about them).
yes, and 7yr olds shooting BB guns too apparently.
Felony under the laws of the United States covers
