In last week's column, Free Frank Cooper, I suggested that folks write the various public officials responsible for Cooper's commitment to a mental hospital. Here's an exchange between one of our readers and the county Sheriff.

Dear Sheriff Lott: Your name represents a strong interest
in law and order, justice and liberty, throughout the
history of England and America. I can only hope that
you, in the tradition of your heritage, will realize that ANY
TRESPASS on another's property, or person, is a crime
in America. You committed that crime, and became an
accessory to the crimes of others, because you neglected
to stop it. Many judges and hiway patrolmen have kid-
napped folks who present themselves as SOVEREIGN
INDIVIDUALS, not bound by the 14th Amendment
definition of the "Citizen of the United States," and there-
by declared, to be an enemy of the State. These
same folks, who have not contracted away their
sovereign God-given rights for privileges from the State,
are put into mental facilities, for psychiatric evaluation.
And in the case of one such Dentist, are force-fed drugs
to support the doctor/judge/cop's conclusion that he is
nuts. Justice starts and ends with your authority. You
have the toughest job in the State, and your discretion
must support liberty and freedom in all cases, and not the
will of those supervisors who, because they cut your
paycheck, think they have control over your decisions
for what's right or wrong. Your ultimate judgment for
your actions comes from your maker, and you have to
live with that in your heart. Please do what's right, not
what's politically correct. Thanks for responding, SJ

Great letters, SJ! If Sheriff Lott responds again, do let me know!
