One reason I switched from running for US Senate to running for Utah Governor is because I realized that tyranny at home is worse than tyranny far away.

Well, it hit closer to home.

Go read this story. A man was arrested for exercising a clear right to attend his own trial without restriction.

This happened in Idaho, a more conservative state. And the man was arrested by deputies of the Ada County Sheriff, an elected official.

With things like this happening, two things are clear:

  1. The police must earn our support. We can’t just “Back the Blue” by default.
  2. Tyranny can appear anywhere.

If you are in Idaho, or can get there, please go support Garth Gaylord, Lori Marr, and the unnamed brave soul who were all arrested falsely.
