Tyler, TX (KETK) — In Colorado the state police are giving training sessions to local sheriffs.
They keep the flow of information coming to locals from the state police and Department of Homeland Security because there is so much to keep up with now a days just to catch criminals and put them away.
One local undersheriff was stunned, recently, when the state patrolman covered the current topics.
His name is Ron Trowbridge
He's the undersheriff of Prowers County, Colorado.
The training session was focused upon two primary subjects, motorcycle gangs and the Sovereign Citizen Movement.
Based on Trowbridge's account, Joe Kluczynski, the individual delivering the training, essentially told officials that Bible-believing Christians who take the Holy Book literally, are more likely to be a part of the Sovereign Citizen Movement.
They are considered dangerous.
"He had a list of groups of people who are likely or who are sovereign citizens, " the undersheriff told TheBlaze.
One was Christians and I don't remember how he worded it, but it was Christians, but when he got to that part he said these are the people who take the Bible literally, these are the people who think that America was founded on Christian principles.
The undersheriff complained.
The state police were told to knock it off until they took another look at the program and perhaps restructured it.
The state patrol says other officers didn't take the message the same as Trowbridge.
He'll watch this one for you, we live in strange times.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
