    Our deputies are not required to allow anyone to violate the laws.

    Wut?

    It also doesn’t mention anywhere who’s shot hit the woman in the summary blurb. Was it the cops or the dude who began shooting at the cops that was shot dead?

      It’s a response to the “sovereign citizen” thing. Sovcits believe that the law does not apply to them.

          And they can. It’s sometimes framed as prosecutorial discretion. It’s the reason why if you’re driving with the “flow” of traffic that is speeding, you can get pulled over and no one else. They aren’t legally required to pull over any of them, let alone the “first” offender.

          They aren’t. And often don’t. If they stopped everyone who violated a traffic law they’d have to invest too much time and effort for little effect. That’s why there’s usually a threshold most of us know we can get away with speeding a certain amount. Cops have to use their discretion on which offenses to persue and which to ignore

      It’s quite possible they don’t know who shot the bystander and won’t until after some investigation. Not a huge amount, but just reviewing any footage, seeing where people were when they were shooting and shot, probably looking at the bullets.

      The first bit is because sovereign citizens believe they can opt out of the law, and police will have to let them violate the law with impunity.
