Sheriff Gil Gilbertson
Josephine County, Oregon,
Sheriff Gil Gilbertson

Grants Pass, OR - Josephine County Sheriff Gil Gilbertson is apparently challenging Federal authority within the borders of the Southern Oregon county. In a letter obtained by the US~Observer, Gilbertson writes to Roy Bergstrom of the United States Forest Service:

"As the CLEO [chief law enforcement officer] of this County, elected by the citizens, saddled with the expectation and responsibility to safeguard their rights I fully intend to uphold the laws against any threat, inappropriate or unlawful actions against them. The citizens of this County are complaining about unfair treatment and harassment by the federal government LEOs.

The issues of illegal road closures, grazing, logging, minerals, taking land under the auspices of “Monument” status, citizen complaints against your LEO [law enforcement officer] agents, high unemployment and other socio-economic issues we all face today; coupled with the uncooperative nature presented by the USFS are causing me great concern about our relationship and future cooperation." - Definitions of abbreviations added by US~Observer.

Gilbertson says that the public just doesn't trust the federal government any longer, and that he is taking steps to protect and enforce the constitutional limitations placed on the federal government in regard to state and local law, and jurisdiction.

According to Gilbertson, the Constitution is clear, and the people deserve to have a government that lives within it's mandate.

There will be more on this, as it develops...
