Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd in Lakeland, Florida isn’t going to tolerate looting in his town. He issued a warning to anyone planning to break into people’s homes: don’t do it or you may get shot.
“For those who want to come in, stealthily, among those wonderful people who are simply making their position known, the ones that tried to infiltrate, we are going to hunt you down and lock you up if you engage in any criminal conduct,” the sheriff said.
He also told residents they should be armed and ready if people try to break in.
“If you value your life, they probably shouldn’t do that in Polk County. Because the people of Polk County like guns, they have guns, I encourage them to own guns, and they’re going to be in their homes tonight with their guns loaded, and if you try to break into their homes to steal, to set fires, I’m highly recommending they blow you back out of the house with their guns. So, leave the community alone,” Judd said.
Dana Loesch interviewed Judd on her show yesterday, where he talked more about his statements.
