Thank you Sheriff Adkinson!
Oh God in heaven. Protect us.
Would love to hear your views on this one.
Geez. He needs to be worried about enforcing the law, not slapping religious stickers on police cars.
I don't love my tax dollars going towards this effort. Last time I checked, ordering God stickers and taking the time to stick them on the squad cars was not in the sheriff and deputy job descriptions. I hope the stickers were donated, and the time taken to adhere them to the cars was reimbursed to the county.
Apparently it's the latest and greatest new thing for sheriff's officers in PCB and now here.
Someone in Bay County picked up the tab for the stickers but not sure about Walton County.
You already know.
Just thought we could get as many comments on this one as the flag.
I'm not your moving target!
Did you guys know this?
"In God We Trust" was adopted by the Florida legislature as part of the state seal in 1868. This is also the motto of the United States and is a slight variation on Florida's first state motto, "In God is our Trust."
Whether you agree it should be there or not, it's hard to argue with the logic of "Well, it IS our state motto."
Good point and thanks for the reminder.
If you don't plan on being chaufferred in a Walton County Sheriff vehicle, why do you care? It's not like anyone is requiring you to place the sticker on your personal vehicle.
Personally, I am glad to see this.
What does it accomplish? As a piece of government property, I wonder about the ramifications. But I don't want to be seen as an outsider trying to divide the populace.
There won't be any...not locally anyway. People are willing to overlook the Constitution and the rule of law when it flies in the face of their religious convictions.
Ain't that right Danny?
It's a bizarre place. I'll miss the beach, and a lot of the people, but not much else.
I don't see anything at all reassuring about dialing 911 and having a bunch of God people showing up at my house. If it's an emergency and there is an intruder lurking about I would prefer Satan's lair.
Good luck in your new endeavors.
On some things we do agree.
I don't see the problem with putting the US/Florida motto on a piece of government property. But I think I will stay out of this, I am still licking my wounds from the last dust up.
Now that's "chicken"....LOL!
Shortsighted for our law enforcement but a non issue imo.
Separate names with a comma.
