Sheriff Defends Hurricane Warrant Warning

Sheriff Defends Hurricane Warrant Warning

In the tweets, Judd said sex offenders would not be allowed at the shelters.

That got the attention of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida.

Announcing an intention to "lock up" anyone with an outstanding warrant may have the effect of discouraging people from seeking shelter, reports Business Insider, and may lead to additional deaths and injuries from Hurricane Irma - the second-strongest storm ever recorded in the Atlantic Ocean.

"This definitely won't cause anyone to try to ride out the storm because they have too many unpaid parking tickets or whatever".

Arpaio, a former sheriff of Maricopa County in Arizona, was found guilty of criminal contempt for allegedly defying a judge's 2011 order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants. Or they could choose not to turn themselves in and avoid the shelters altogether.

When asked further about the stance, the Polk County Sheriff's Department clarified its position to the Daily Beast.

According to Business Insider, Judd is popular in Polk County and has made a name for himself by combating pedophilia.

"We will not allow sexual predators and child offenders in our shelters", the sheriff wrote.

"Of all the gross things that America has invented and mass-produced, Aspiring Celebrity Tough Guy Sheriffs have to be about the grossest", David Roth said on Twitter Wednesday.

Polk County, between Orlando and Tampa, is home to about 600,000 people.

Horstman tells the New York Times that officials are not concerned with checking the immigration status of people in the shelters. You are using the phrase, 'people who are scared to go to jail.' If you have a warrant, legally you should be in jail. "Good job", said another Twitter user.

Horstman said the office did something similar in 2004.

"If you look for a shelter from Irma, be warned: sworn officers will be at each shelter to monitor the identities".

Why are you checking IDs?

"The message has already been received by the 18,000 undocumented persons in Polk County", Smith, a Democrat, told the Sentinel. "We need to know who is in there".
