Harris County Sheriff’s Office puts up ‘politically incorrect’ welcome sign

HARRIS COUNTY, Ga.- Sheriff Mike Jolley of Harris County put up a new welcome sign right outside the sheriff’s office. It starts with the sentence ‘warning Harris County is politically incorrect’.

Sheriff Jolley said there’s a vast majority of people who are silent about their beliefs but he’s not going to remain tight lipped.

"I spent 20 years in the army to give everyone the right not to agree with it and to voice their opinion if they’re not, and that’s fine" Jolley explained.

A Facebook post in the Harris County Neighborhood Watchers group already has hundreds of likes and shares. Some comments underneath the picture seem to support Jolley’s new sign, others think it’s over the top.

"We’ve gotten several hundred emails, Instagrams, Facebook comments and many citizens in my county want to buy one and put it on their property so you’ll probably be seeing many more of these throughout the county".

Sheriff Jolley said he bought the sign with his own money but since putting it up Tuesday morning, he’s gotten several donations from people living in the county supporting his way of speaking out.
