    Where exactly did he say Sheriff is a "White American Heritage"? You really are sounding a little like an idiot.
    You're sounding like a Klan apologist.
    Sessions has a history.

    This is the stupidest controversy. A few seconds of research would have spared us the fake outrage. American law enforcement is based on the English common law system. The word "sheriff" is derived from shire and reeve.
    Was Barack Obama being a racist when he referred to it himself?
    The world is watching what we do today in America. They will know what we do here today, and they will treat all of us accordingly in the future—our soldiers, our diplomats, our journalists, anybody who travels beyond these borders. I hope we remember this as we go forward. I sincerely hope we can protect what has been called the "great writ"—a writ that has been in place in the Anglo-American legal system for over 700 years.

    Your silly question has already been addressed and answered in the thread. That was different. You are a racist.

    ....and stupid.



    " Sessions doesn't give a shit about them because he is a racist fucking pig. As far as those who think there is some comparison here in the use of the term by Obama as compared to sessions, well, they are just plain fucking stupid and probably racist as well because they are incapable of telling that difference. "

    Anglo coming from English. Our law has basis in English law, not Mexico's or Nigeria or some other hell hole.

    Blackstone, Sir William

    Sir William Blackstone.
    LIBRARY OF CONGRESS



    The groundwork for U.S. Jurisprudence lies in a four-volume eighteenth-century publication by British legal commentator Sir William Blackstone. Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England provided a systematic analysis of English Common Law. Published between 1765 and 1769, the treatise was an exhaustive compilation of Blackstone's Oxford University lectures on law. Commentaries was unprecedented in scope and purpose, and profoundly influenced the development of common law and Legal Education in England and the United States.

    In 1765, Blackstone published the first of his four volumes of Commentaries. The treatise discussed the cases, rules, and legal principles outlined in his popular Oxford lectures. Each volume concentrated on a particular area of law—personal rights, property rights, torts, or Criminal Law. As Blackstone analyzed the laws, he also revealed their relationship to a higher power. Throughout his Commentaries, Blackstone wove the concept of "natural law,"or God's laws imposed on humankind.

    he'd fit right in here at PH. Only , he'd be expected to use racial slurs and claim it wasn't "gratuitous", so it's ok.
