Is this true and if so do state attorney generals have the authority to rewrite the U.S. Constitution, State Constitutions and the sheriffs authority and duties?

Sheriff Jeff Christopher of Sussex County, Delaware, when he was elected to the office in 2010, thought he was handpicked by the people to represent them as the highest-ranking law officer in the county. Instead, he has found himself in the middle of a fight for the future of American law enforcement as a result of a nationwide effort to abolish the sheriff’s office altogether.
It is one more example of federal and state governments ignoring the will of the people as well state laws. In the case of Delaware, the state’s own constitution stipulates that the office of the sheriff is a constitutionally created position just like the secretary of state and the attorney general. Delaware’s Constitution states: “The sheriffs shall be conservators of the peace within the counties . . . in which they reside.”
This time it is Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden, sending out mandates to commissioners informing them that their sheriffs no longer have arrest powers. In an opinion released February 24, State Solicitor L.W. Lewis said that neither the state nor the common law grants arrest powers to the county sheriffs.
It would appear that Lewis is a little confused. The office of sheriff was created more than a century before the official founding of the United States. Delaware’s first sheriff took office in 1669.
Christopher tells AMERICAN FREE PRESS that the two administrations prior to his—as far back as 2000—began to notice a reduction in funding and the chipping away of powers of the office in general.
“Now my deputies and I have been relieved of all arrest powers and can’t even make a traffic stop,” he said. “Delaware has only three counties. . . The other two sheriffs . . . will not stand up with me” to prevent the elimination of county law enforcement, he said.
During an interview at the Las Vegas Sheriffs Conference in January, Christopher told AFP that the impotence of his office was brought home to him when he was hit in the eye and kicked by County Councilman Vance Phillips but was unable to arrest him.
Beau Biden’s questionable ruling against the longtime tradition of the sheriff being the highest ranking law enforcement officer in the county because of election by the people means the state’s usurpation of the office appears to be a forthcoming fact.
County spokesman Chip Guy announced, “The opinion from the attorney general’s office reinforces what has long been the position of the county [that] Delaware sheriffs and their deputies do not have arrest powers and are not in the same vein as state police or municipal officers.”

Take Bidens kid out in the woods and hang him .
I'm here to incite others to make a firm stand . I will do my best to restrain myself .
wouldnt tying up bidens kid in court be a better solution until they fire the 1st real shot. Then we have moral high ground and the blessing of the public and god. doing as you suggest makes us no better than them.
Maybe the sheriff and his deputies should start a militia .
why not go public by stating under bidens rule we cannot protect you because we cannot arrest criminals. if the citizens do not stand up they get what they deserve and the sheriff can be welcomed into a new stronger dept by loyal sheriffs
Yes this is true.
The AG has surely forgotten and is not upholding the oaths he has sworn to uphold.
Bobby, I know what you are saying but you also have to remember that this genius was raised by Joe "The dufas" Biden, a career politian who has not followed the Constitution or his oath at any point in his life, unless it benefitted him in some way.
Roger that Fred not forgotten.
They're pushing all the buttons to get the reaction they want to complete the total takeover. New Orleans got it first during Katrina, and it will soon be coming in every neighborhood across the nation!
Don't believe it??? Just watch this video and you'll become a believer! Click HERE for the U tube video from Info Wars!
This is what happens when people don't pay attention to what and who is happening in their communities!
Twana, in this case I have to believe it, it happened and was documented with videos and testimony of the actual events, as shown during the video. The State Department document from 1961 is shown throughout the video while being read.
Remember, I was covert ops back during that time, '59 to '65, and I recall some of the discussions that went on about foreign entities being involved in efforts to disarm people in an effort to bring peace.
Don't trust Info Wars for anything. Although there are some truths in there most of it is BS Twana. Stay away from Info wars to be safe.
