Following the arrest of six men earlier this week for their alleged involvement in a plot to kidnap Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer before the November election, Dar Leaf, Barry County (Mich.) sheriff, said that he doesn't have any regrets about being on stage with one of the suspects at a recent demonstration and suggested the Wolverine Watchmen militia members may have been merely planning to apprehend Gov. Whitmer to execute a citizen's arrest.
Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf Leaf stood alongside an armed William Null at a rally protesting Gov. Whitmer's stay-at-home order in May.
At the mid-May rally, Leaf said the governor's quarantine measures were akin to the mass arrest of the state's residents and called a local barber, who opened despite the governor's order, a "little version of Rosa Parks."
Leaf, a 30-year veteran of law enforcement, praised Michigan militia members working security detail at that event, declaring they were "the last line of defense" against an overreaching government.
"It's just a charge, and they say a 'plot to kidnap,' and you got to remember that. Are they trying to kidnap? Because a lot of people are angry with the governor, and they want her arrested," Leaf explained.
"So are they trying to arrest or was it a kidnap attempt? Because you can still in Michigan if it's a felony, make a felony arrest."
These types are Posse Comitatus Sheriffs; little dictators who think they are the ultimate law.
