Sheriff Jenkins’ partnership with ICE protects our community by enabling aliens wanted on federal criminal charges to be transferred to federal custody at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center rather than out on our streets, where the risk of public endangerment would be higher. That partnership focuses on apprehending the murderer, human trafficker, child molester, and the like. It is not focused on, say, the undocumented nanny or visa overstay. Thank you, Sheriff, for protecting Frederick County.

What a silly letter. If the sheriff only focused on cases of murder, human trafficking and child molestation by illegal immigrants, as the letter indicates, he and his deputies would have next to nothing to do. If however he were to focus on the same crimes by American citizens including members of the clergy, he would have to hire a thousand more investigators.

Sheriff Jenkins is fighting this audit like DJT is fighting the release of his Income Taxes. He went to the last Frederick Republican Club Meeting at the Red Horse and wanted them to flood the County Council Members with emails supporting him and against the audit. They excoriated Michael Blue and Steve McKay for voting for the audit. They also want more supporters to go to the Council Meetings to speak in his favor. He should welcome the audit if he’s clean. What’s Up Sheriff??



...lastly, you don’t have the slightest idea what the 287(g) Program in Frederick County does Mr. Wicker. You embarrass yourself.

Right, this is an independent impartial audit, and nobody is politicizing it except him and the people he convinced to help him. The audit has not even happened yet, and he is making himself look guilty of something. His behavior is confusing.

[thumbup] Bubba doesn't care for oversight. Reminds me of someone else.

It’s just a freakin audit!!!

But, since he’s asking people to write to the council, he should at least tell them the correct facts so they can write from an educated view point!!!!

That is where the Sheriff and I part company. I can only dream of a meal at the Red Horse. He chows down. "Trot out the lobster..."

Why is the Sheriff so afraid of an audit?

Please Jan and company, don’t turn us into Montco. 7 sexual assaults in 5 weeks at the hands of people that should have been removed by ICE. Let the sheriff continue to cooperate with the feds.

Jenkins may what to focus on crimes in Frederick County rather than Mont. Co.. see the attached crime map for Frederick County. There have been quite a few sexual assaults in his jurisdiction.

No one wants to turn FC into any other county. The sheriff is working hard to stoke fear because he is afraid on an audit. Why is the Sheriff so afraid of an audit?

Hyperbole

KellyAlzan

All these LTE’s that exclaim the writers don’t know what it is they’re writing about. So sad




awteam2000

Aren’t those apprehended brought here from other jurisdictions and held for ICE? So how does that help the streets of Frederick?

tonyc51

It's not always about where they happen to be apprehended. You do realize that there are numerous ways that a person from Baltimore can get to Frederick to commit crimes, or do you not read the news stories posted almost daily?

KellyAlzan

List some examples of actual news stories

awteam2000

But they are arrested in Baltimore. Right? Baltimore has a really big jail. Right? Or does Jenkins and his sheriff’s go find people in other jurisdictions to bring to Frederick who might escape other jurisdictions and of-course would come to Frederick. They haven’t heard Barbara Fritchie Restaurant closed two years ago? Just asking?

I wonder if an audit would be able to quantify how many of those comprehended in other jurisdictions would come to Frederick?

Comprehended? Or apprehended?

awteam2000

Apprehended 👍
