Colo. sheriff: CSP should suspend course that calls for monitoring of Christians
(JOE NEWBY) Responding to a report by Prowers County, Colo., Undersheriff Ron Trowbridge that said a training session advocated monitoring Christians who believe the Bible is the literal word of God, Sheriff Jim Faull said in a media release Sunday that the Colorado State Patrol should “suspend” the training “until it can be reevaluated and appropriate changes made.”
On Friday, we reported that Trowbridge discussed the training he received in a letter that was posted at Red Statements by Steven H. Ahle.
According to the letter, Colorado State Patrol Trooper Joe Kluczynski gave a 2-hour presentation on the “sovereign citizen” movement.
But Kluczynski went further than the FBI, claiming that the movement includes “those who believe America was founded on godly principles, Christians who take the Bible literally, and ‘fundamentalists’.”
According to Kluczynski, those individuals and groups are “dangerous” because they are “angry over the election of a black president” and need to be monitored.
