Above is the format one uses to honesty quote someone on this forum.

Some jails contract with the federal government to handle federal prisoners but all jails. And no jail is required by contract to obey an unlawful command any more than any Citizen or Deputy U.S. Marshall is obliged to do so.

Anyone recall the alleged statement, "Offer the [Bonner County] Sheriff some money"?

And note, please, how quickly Misters Hadding and Pauley weighed in with their responses to the posting here of Mr. Steele's latest post.

U.S. Marshalls have always been political appointees. The U.S. Marshalls Service, employing Deputy U.S. Marshalls, on the other hand, is an administrative agency of the executive branch of the federal government. You might enjoy Steve McQueen's arguably last, greatest film, Tom Horn, which I'm told is a NETFLIX selection: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080031/
