Desmond isn’t the only sheriff in New York who has qualms about the law. But law enforcement officials are expected to maintain a standard of even-handedness. Perhaps Clinton County Sheriff Dave Favro, in an interview Wednesday with North Country Public Radio, put it best.
“I can’t tell my deputy not to enforce the law, because where do you draw the line, what to enforce?” Favro said. “I don’t have to like them, I don’t have to support them and I can fight to have them changed. Whether I personally like them or don’t, it’s irrelevant. It is a law.”
