NARSOL warns law enforcement that they are being watched

Sometimes a new event occurs almost before we can react to the previous one. That is what it has felt like with everything going on in Georgia in regard to county sheriffs and persons on the registry and warning signs.

No sooner did the matter come before a U.S. District Court in Georgia when we received word that another Georgia county sheriff was placing signs. No sooner had NARSOL hand-delivered a warning letter to that sheriff, Sheriff Lee Cone in Ben Hill County, when the court ruled in favor of the Butts County registrants, causing the signs on their properties to be removed.

We need a scorecard.

2018: Signs are placed in Butts and in Spalding Counties; NARSOL formally protests; the signs remained.

2019:

NARSOL joins a suit against officials of both counties seeking damages and requesting an injunction against the signs; Spalding County capitulates and says they will not place the signs for 2019; Butts County persists; a hearing date is set;

NARSOL sends a warning letter to Sheriff Cone in Ben Hill County and issued a press release about it;

The court granted the injunction against placing signs on the litigants’ property in Butts County;

NARSOL issued a press release warning law enforcement everywhere that we would be monitoring their behaviors toward persons on the registry for actions or requirements that seem to infringe on constitutional protections; read that press release here.
