Sadly, this is how government looks at your rights

I see Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison on this video.  He acted more like Barney Fife, unfortunately.  I found it interesting that one Sheriff cited constitutional law and then turned around and cited Marbury vs. Madison, which was a usurpation of the US Constitution, but it did have an ill conceived precedent in the NC cast of Bayard vs. Singleton.  The people in that meeting attempt to bring to the forefront a valid point about unalienable rights.  As stated in the Declaration of Independence, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."  The very definition of unalienable is "Not to be separated, given away, or taken away".  To cite a usurpation as a precedent to exercise usurpation is hardly unalienable.
