Ashtabula County, Ohio: Judge tells residents to "Arm themselves"

JEFFERSON (WKYC.COM) — In the ongoing financial crisis in Ashtabula County, the Sheriff’s Department has been cut from 112 to 49 deputies. With deputies assigned to transport prisoners, serve warrants and other duties, only one patrol car is assigned to patrol the entire county of 720 square miles.

“I did the best with what they the county commissioners gave me. If it wasn't enough, don’t blame me, don’t blame this department,” said Sheriff Billy Johnson.
