Harmison is the only one on the Sheriff's ballot with law enforcement experience(40+ years). It's crazy to think that someone who was never a cop(Hannah) thinks he can run a large police department. He doesn't even want to carry a gun!


Not like the current sheriff had law enforcement experience.

Representing the Mambo

Point well taken, however Harmison has had real street experience and was not a back office fed bureaucrat, weedling and grasping for that next promotion

Sheriff Chapman has been proven to be a bumbling militarist bureaucrat masquerading as a season police leader. Chapman to my knowledge has never even made an arrest.
