Lawless sheriffs? Try a lawless president
Del. Jon Cardin, an attorney representing Baltimore County in the legislature, recently opined that local sheriffs cannot choose which laws to ignore and that our freedoms depend on adherence to the rule of law ("The lawless sheriffs of Maryland," June 17). I wonder if Mr. Cardin feels the same way about our "lawless" president, Barack Obama, who has made it a practice to circumvent the law, whenever he pleases, by issuing executive order after executive order specifically to bypass Congress, whom we the people elected to protect our civil rights.
