    Angry Wayne Co. Sherriff's post refuses to take down illegal "no firearms" sign "again"???






    I had an appointment near the scene of last month's incident with the illegal sign at the Henry Ruff office {Westland, MI.} of the Wayne County Sheriff's office. Sprinklerguy28 had a conversation with the officer in charge Lt. Praydel (sorry if I misspelled his name). At the end of which it seemed that they would move the sign away from the "public" lobby area & place it near the half door that leads to the secure areas. See links:

    After speaking with this officer today it is clear he will not be moving the sign without a direct order from a superior. He states that to date he has received no such order?

    The sign holds NO authority so who cares! If its misleading people, then oh well, the people who dont know the gun laws, dont care about it because they dont carry guns.

    If the Sheriff department thinks that a sign on the door is going to stop a crazy person from running in with gun and trying to shoot a bunch of deputies, then a big LOL to that!

    I disagree. Just because someone doesn't know every gun law in michigan doesn't mean they don't care, there are way too many laws for everyone to learn them all. The police should not be misleading the public and once notified they should be required by law to conform.

    Also this just invites the deputies to illegally harass legal fire arm carriers.

    illegal sign at police stations

    If they are not going to remove the sign we need a massive email,calling, and faxing to the chief and the mayor.Do it every day until they cry uncle. Stay legal but drive them nuts.All you techie guys can do it well.

    Question

    Has anyone been able to reach Sheriff Benny Nepolean? I can't find contact # for his office anywhere. General # goes to voice mail that never gets returned?

    Benny was a customer of mine for years back when he worked for Detroit. I'm sure he'd be shocked to see me OCing, asking him to take down his illegal signs.

    Something is rotten in Wayne County..., oh wait!..., it always has been.
    I can not get enough of how Detroit and Company think that they are above State Law.
    By the way..., same thing goes for Flint, Michigan too.

    Sprinklerguy and I went down there today. They have the same "no firearms" sign at the headquarters too. In fact, they demand ID before they let you talk to anyone. We wouldn't give ID so we were told we couldn't talk to anyone or come into the building. We told them we would speak to someone outside if need be. After some huffing and puffing, the officer at the desk went and talked to an IA sergeant. He came out and and immediately knew who Sprinker was and said he had watched the video from Henry Ruff. He asked if were video taping now! Ha! He was a very friendly and professional officer. He gave us a complaint form, the name and the phone number for Benny's secretary to make an appointment. Only Benny can authorize taking the signs down. The next phase is trying to get an appointment with the Sheriff. We'll update as things move forward.

    Good job. Should have asked for a second complaint form for the desk officer's unprofessional behavior.

    Great news!

    The no firearms sign on the front door at the Sheriffs station in Westland, MI on Henry Ruff at Michigan Ave. has been taken down!

    There's a new "yellow" sign in it's place that reads:

    NO FIREARMS
    ALLOWED IN THE
    SECURED AREAS OF
    THIS BUILDING
    I would like to thank whoever made the decision to take down the non-legal sign.

    Thank you.

    While many claim to support the right to keep and bear arms, precious few support the practice.
