Florida Sheriff Who Threatened ‘Godless’ BLM Protesters Removed From Office August 16, 2020

Another “Good Christian Man”: Clay County Florida Sheriff Darryl Daniels, who recently made headlines after making threats against “godless” Black Lives Matter protesters, has been removed from office.

Daniels was removed from office after being “arrested Thursday on felony and misdemeanor charges following a year-long investigation into a sex scandal where the sheriff ordered his staff to arrest his mistress,” according to a report from the Florida Times-Union.

As for his removal from office, Associated Press reports:

A Florida sheriff facing a primary contest next week was suspended from office Friday, a day after his arrest in connection to a sex scandal investigation at his previous job, officials said.

Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order removing Clay County Sheriff Darryl Daniels from his elected position. Daniels turned himself in to the jail in nearby Jacksonville on Thursday on a felony charge of tampering with evidence and three misdemeanor counts of giving false information to law enforcement.

In an explosive video released at the end of June, Sheriff Daniels invoked God multiple times while claiming he would make “special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county” to put down “godless” Black Lives Matter protesters.

In the video rant Daniels declared:

God is absent from the media’s message or Black Lives Matter…

God is raising up men and women just like the folks standing behind me who will have strong backbones and will stand in the gap between lawlessness and the citizenry we’re sworn to protect.

 I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility. 

But now this “good Christian man” that was so concerned with “law and order” has been removed from office after being arrested and charged for trying to get his mistress arrested on false charges.

Bottom line: Florida Sheriff Darryl Daniels, who recently made headlines after making threats against “godless” Black Lives Matter protesters, has been removed from office after being arrested for having his mistress arrested on false charges.
