About a month ago, Inland Northwest Oath Keepers invited Sheriff Wheeler of Bonner County to appear at a town hall, billed as a “support your local sheriff” town hall. The question and answer period was respectful and informative, and Sheriff Wheeler took the opportunity to proclaim to his constituents that he will help protect the citizens of Bonner County from illegal intrusion from federal agencies like the IRS, ATF, DHS, etc. based on the state constitution. A couple of weeks ago, the local chapter of Oath Keepers contacted Sheriff Wolfinger of Kootenai County to address another “support your local sheriff” town hall, scheduled in Kootenai County at his convenience. The purpose was to discuss the sheriff’s role and responsibility to his constituents. His response through his secretary was “the Sheriff is not interested”/Scott Whitehurst, Inland Northwest Oath Keepers, Athol, letter to editor, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
Question: Should Sheriff Wolfinger meet with the Oath Keepers group?
