Georgia Law Enforcement Slams Abrams Attack on Sheriffs
WRBL: “Harris County Sheriff Mike Jolley reacts to comment Democrat Stacey Abrams made about ‘Good ol’ Boy’ sheriffs”
“That drew a sharp response Monday from one of those sheriffs, Harris County’s Mike Jolley, who was attending a Kemp campaign event in Newnan. ‘That shows her lack of knowledge of what we do in law enforcement,’ Jolley told WRBL. ‘The sheriffs don’t lock up black people, or white people, or Asian people. We lock up criminals.'”
AJC: “Sheriffs blast Abrams’ law enforcement comments”
“The president of the Georgia Sheriffs Association criticized Democrat Stacey Abrams for her debate comments involving the 107 sheriffs who endorsed Gov. Brian Kemp. McDuffie said law enforcement officers ‘put their lives on the line for everyone in their community. To suggest otherwise is insulting and outrageous. As president of the Georgia Sheriffs Association, I was incredibly disappointed to hear what Ms. Abrams had to say about the sheriffs of our state, and I hope she will do the right thing and immediately apologize to Georgia’s law enforcement community.”
