Today, Sheriff Brad Rogers of Elkhart County published a statement in support of the Indiana 4th Amendment Protection Act, SB231. (bill details here)
STATEMENT FROM SHERIFF BRAD ROGERS:
The NSA’s broad surveillance of American citizens has gotten out of hand. Mass-data collection without a specific warrant flies in the face of the principles outlined in our bill of rights. That is why I am pleased to voice my support for Indiana State Sen. Mike Delph’s Fourth Amendment Protection Act, SB 231.
This legislation would prohibit state support of the NSA and makes assisting a federal agency in warrantless data collection a level 5 felony.
For too long we have allowed the federal government to do as it pleases, and this is a great step toward re-securing our liberties.
I urge other state legislators to join in support of this bill.
Elected in 2010, Sheriff Brad Rogers is a 27 year veteran of the Elkhart County Sheriff’s department. Starting as a patrol officer he worked his way up the ranks and was eventually promoted to Corrections Captain. In 2010 he ran for Sheriff, winning a competitive Republican primary, and went on to win the general election by a vast margin.
