It is a shame that someone thinks he is above the the law.

Mr. Hagen had no right to do what he did, by questioning the deputy. He should have been given a ticket. If he wants to act this way, let him move to D.C.

I don't think his actions represent the majority of Frederick County residents. Again, thanks for job well done by the Frederick Sheriff's Office and Sheriff Jenkins.

Good points in the LTE above. I don't like to criticize others unless there's merit for it and it's necessary to do so. In this case, Mr. Hagen reasonably deserves criticism. He didn't just observe the police traffic stop, it appears from the reporting of the incident, that Mr. Hagen needlessly created a potentially dangerous and problematic situation. As the FNP indicated in their editorial comment on this matter - Hagen was wrong to interfere in the police officer's duties the way he did - which could have put all parties in danger. If one has observed Mr. Hagen's past actions, some of his personality traits become clear. It's no surprise that Sherrif Jenkins or others may wonder "Who does Mr. Hagen think he is?!" Mr. Hagan's past conduct shows he can be arrogant, pompous, radical, impulsive, and lacks credibility as at times, he's been dishonest in his statements and treatment of others. This current police traffic stop incident reflects poorly on Mr. Hagen and is a result of his own arrogance and lack of judgement. Frankly, many may agree Councilman Hagen should be removed from office as Sherrif Jenkins suggests. If he doesn't get removed now, the next election can not come soon enough. Lastly, Mr. Hagen appears to have an impulsive tendency to over-react and I agree with other commentary posts in FNP articles on this traffic stop incident where folks previously noted that it's practically racist in itself, that Mr. Hagen became involved because he saw a black person in the car. Others have also wondered: Has Mr. Hagen ever stopped to check on the driver during a police traffic stop when a white person was the driver?

Too many presumptions of fact and of law make it very important that no person is below the law. We all have rights, even the few of us who are elected to offices of trust and responsibility.

Nope.

If it was an unlawful act wouldn’t the shame be on the sheriff’s office for not pressing charges? That’s their job. Right? Unless there was no criminal act.

There could not be a better illustration of what transpires in this section and with the liberal reporting at large. Exaggerations and falsehoods are put forth, then repeated, and repeated until they are quoted as fact:

"Chuck Jenkins was told in an official capacity beforehand by the Attorney General (Charles Smith) there was no unlawful action by Kai"

But when called out the narrative is twisted to still place blame. This is the primary reason many cable news outlets, which feed upon each other's fabricated assertions, have such poor ratings and credibility. And with little doubt why this comment section has such slight general public participation.

What were the exaggerations and falsehoods?
