This could get ugly VERY quickly.
The Oath Keepers, an organization of first responders dedicated to upholding the tenets of the United States Constitution, have offered county clerk Kim Davis an armed security detail to prevent her further arrest.
In a statement issued last Wednesday, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes said that the group would protect the Rowan County, Kentucky clerk from further arrest.
Davis rose to national prominence when she was thrown in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, citing her belief in “God’s authority” over that of unelected justices.
“We believe Federal District Court Judge David Bunning grossly overstepped his bounds and violated Mrs. Davis’ due process rights, and in particular her right to a jury trial,” Rhodes said in his statement.
“No one man should have that kind of power in his hands alone to decide guilt and impose a sentence of indefinite detention,” Rhodes continued.
“Under our Constitution, that dictatorial power does not exist. We must stand against this. And so we will protect her and prevent it from happening again.”
According to the Oath Keepers’ website, Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders, who pledge to fulfill the oath all military and police take to “defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”
