Mail: Dawson County destroyed fenceTell North Platte what you think
 

A recent story in a Dawson County newspaper described how the Dawson County Commissioners took action against the county surveyor to insure his conduct follows the law. That is appropriate. It is too bad the Commissioners themselves refuse to follow the law, and obey and defend the Constitutions as their sworn oaths of office require.

Hypocrisy is showing.

Dawson County violated the law by destroying a fence on my family farm. The law requires them to reimburse me as the property owner. They have blatantly refused to do that. The Nebraska and U.S. Constitution clearly state that such actions are not allowed. Their sworn oaths of office state they will obey and enforce the laws and defend the Constitution. They are doing the opposite. They have also misrepresented facts to the press.

The County Attorney has also refused to act to cause the Commissioners to act lawfully and comply with their oaths of office. She apparently is also above the law. She should make her clients – Dawson County – obey the law and comply with sworn oaths of office.

Apparently the law only applies to “common folk” and not those “special folks” holding the title of Commissioner or County Attorney.

The Dawson County Commissioners appear to be a corrupt bunch who believe they are above the law and act accordingly, along with the County Attorney.

I suggest it is time to clean house in the courthouse at the next elections. And, ahead of that it would probably be appropriate to bring in the Nebraska Attorney General, the Nebraska State Patrol, and the Office of the Governor to investigate the obvious corruption and take the strongest possible action to clean up the mess and remove the lawbreakers from public office.
