A sheriff in Florida is under fire after posting a video with a strong message to drug dealers: “We are coming for you”

His anti-drug tactic is, “We don’t negotiate” Which sounds great, right? I don’t see a problem with it. However, he is receiving heat for is video looking like an “ISIS” propaganda footage according to some viewers.

Lake County Sheriff Peyton Grinnell shared the video on Facebook, in which he told heroin drug dealers to “enjoy trying to sleep at night” because they will always be worried whether or not the SWAT team was coming for them.

“You can’t negotiate with these drug dealers. They know what they’re doing,” Grinnell told “Fox and Friends.”

“They are pushing this poison out on our streets. We need to take a tough stance on it and that’s what we’re going to do.”

Do you think the video was in the wrong? OR was this within reason? I say they could have been a little tougher, in my opinion!
