Is interposition a duty for local, as well as state government officals? Whether he uses the word interposition or not, current chief deputy DA and incoming DA of San Mateo County, Steve Wagstaffe is just doing it.
He has stated that he will prosecute TSA employees if it can be proven that it they are involved in inappropriate touching with a lewd or sexual intent when they frisk passengers who opt-out of the X-rated … um, I mean X-ray scans. In fact, sheriff’s deputies will be sent into airports to keep an eye on TSA employees.
Any local official who has taken an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States would seem to have a duty to interpose on behalf of the People whenever it comes to their attention that the individuals who are pleased to call themselves our federal government, are ignoring or trampling on the Bill of Rights.
Party politics and any other partisan issues aside, when a person holding a position of public trust interposes to support and defend the constitutionally guaranteed rights of citizens, they deserve recognition and praise for their actions.
