His name is Clay Higgins, but he’s known as the Cajun John Wayne for his brash, no-nonsense way of enforcing the law. This awesome video has cost a great lawman his badge. This is the politically correct world we live in.
Sheriff’s Captain Clay Higgins made famous by his loved Crime Stoppers Videos has turned in his badge rather than sacrifice his beliefs. The strong convictions that have made Higgins a famous lawman seem to have cost him his job.
Apparently, no good deed goes unpunished. Captain Higgins gave a statement on the steps of the St. Landry Parish Courthouse.
From ABC KATC.com:
Clay Higgins, the charismatic Sheriff’s captain who put St. Landry Parish Crime Stoppers on the international map with his viral videos, has resigned from the Sheriff’s Office.
Higgins made the announcement Monday morning on the steps of the St. Landry Parish Courthouse. He says he was not forced to resign, but he felt he need to turn in his badge, which the Sheriff accepted.
“I will not kneel to violent street gangs. I will not kneel to murderers or the parents that raised them. I will not kneel to a discredited, wanna-be, black activist that doesn’t really have the best interest of his people in mind, who just wants to make a profit,” says Higgins. “I will not kneel to bureaucrats in Baton Rouge, Washington or anywhere else who have forgotten why they wear a badge and who have forgotten who they serve.”
Higgins said he loves Sheriff Bobby Guidroz. He admires him and respects him, but he can’t abide by his current orders.
“I would die rather than sacrifice my principles,” Higgins says. “I would leave my wife without a husband, my children without a daddy, rather than kneel to the very forces of evil that I have so long stood against.”
Hopefully, some wise TV producer out there just gave Captain Higgins a call and we will see more of him bringing down criminals in the future. He is a national treasure, it would be a shame for him to disappear from the public eye.
