Heroic Utah Sheriff Stands Up To BLM

UntitledA Utah sheriff has put out the word that he will not allow his county to be overrun by the unconstitutional Bureau of Land Management and the US Forest Service, and has gone so far as to warn the BLM that he will “deputize every man, woman and child in the county to stop what’s going on,” Sheriff Gleave concluded.
He further stated that he would, “deputize everyone and arrest all federal agents” should they enter his county in a similar manner to that of those in Nevada and Oregon.
Sheriff Marty Gleave has been serving the county as sheriff for nearly 25 years. According to Gleave, all he has seen is that things “get progressively worse and worse and worse with the so-called land police.”
Gleave serves Piute County, which is the second smallest county by population in Utah. However, following the protests in Oregon, the arrests of many protesters at Bundy Ranch, including Cliven Bundy and the murder of LaVoy Finicum, Gleave determined to take a stand when he addressed the Rural Caucus of the Utah State legislature on February 12, 2016.
