John Moody at Food Clubs & Coops notes that the second Raw Milk Freedom Riders event will ride from Wisconsin to Chicago.
He also reports that Elkhart County, IN farmers David Hochstetler and Richard Hebron were subpoenaed by the US Dept of Justice at the behest of the FDA. But, Sheriff Brad Rogers stepped in and notified the DOJ that if they wanted to have any dealings with those under his protection and jurisdiction, they would have to go through him.
Moody writes, “Even in the face of severe coercive pressure (the DOJ threatened Sheriff Rogers with a FELONY ARREST for doing his job and fulfilling his oath of office), Sheriff Rogers stood tall and did not back down.”
Sketchy on the details as to why the farmers were subpoened, the piece reports that Hochstetler was released from the subpoena. No word on the action against Hebron.
“Rogers is a member of the County Sheriff Project, an organization founded by Richard Mack and friends, dedicated to training and supporting sheriffs to enable them to fulfill their constitutional oath. Mack is holding an event in Las Vegas and encouraging people to ‘Sponsor a Sheriff’ so that they can reach as many local sheriffs as possible.”
