[Captain Clay Higgins (Sheriff of St. Landry Parish Sheriff’s Office):] Source: LYBIO.net
I’ve asked you all here today, I have a prepared statement, and then I’m prepared to take questions.

I’ve asked you all here today, with a heavy heart, to advise of my resignation from the St. Landry Parish Sheriffs Office. I’ve met with the Sheriff, he has accepted my resignation. I was not forced to resign, the Sheriff did not ask for my resignation. Rather, I’ve turned in my badge as a matter of conscience. If I may, for just a moment, I’d like to explain.

I begin each day, from bended knee. But I kneel to our Savior. I will not kneel, to violent street gangs. I will not kneel, to murderers or the parents that raised them. I will not kneel, to a discredited wanna-be black activist, that doesn’t really have the best interest of his people in mind, he just wants to make a profit.

I will not kneel, to bureaucrats in Baton Rouge or in Washington or anywhere else, who have forgotten why they wear a badge, and who they serve.

Ladies and gentlemen, I would die, rather than sacrifice my principles.

I would give my life, leave my wife without a husband, and my children without a Daddy… rather than kneel to the very forces of evil that I so long stood against.

So, if I would sacrifice my life for my principles, surely you must understand, that I must sacrifice my job.

It saddens me, that I feel compelled to do so, because I love my Sheriff, I admire my Sheriff, I respect him, he’s a good man, with a good heart. Although I’d take a bullet for my Sheriff, although I’d stand with him against any peril, I cannot abide by his current orders. I’m sorry, but I just can’t.

Paul told us in Corinthians: place not your faith in the wisdom of man… but in the spirit and power of God.

I haven’t always been the man that stands before you today. I’ve spent the last 15 years of my life, struggling to become a better man. I will not go back. I will not retreat. I will not step away from the path that the Lord has prepared for me. I will not succumb to the powers of darkness that I’ve encouraged the world to stand up against. I will be the man, that our Lord intended for me to be… No matter the cost.

I’d like to speak for a moment, about the badge that I turned in today. All of us, that wear badges, begin our jobs with an oath. A sacred oath, sworn by generations of courageous Americans before us. With that oath, that allegiance, is not to a Sheriff, it’s not to a Chief… It’s to the constitutional principles that our badge represents. It’s to the people, that we’ve sworn to serve and protect. It’s to an American nation, that hungers for truth, and justice and strength, and compassion. It’s to a world torn asunder by forces that men like me have sworn our own life’s blood to defeat as we stand as one, against the very gates of Hell.

If I were to continue to wear the badge that I resign from today, and to work within the parameters that I’ve been commanded, I would tarnish that badge. I would violate the principles that it represents and I just can’t do that.

Many of you know, the way I grew up, we raised and trained horses. There’s a saying, amongst equestrians, and Cowboys. Some horses just don’t run well with bit in their mouth. I’m one of those horses. I don’t do well. Reigned in. So, although I love and respect my Sheriff; I must resign. Because as a soldier, if I cannot conscientiously carry out my assigned orders, then I must resign my post.
It’s been my great honor, to serve with the men and women of the St. Landry Parish Sheriffs Office.

It has been my great privilege, to serve, the citizens of St. Landry Parish, the home, that has adopted me, as I’ve adopted it.

My future is bright, because the path I’m on, is illuminated by Gods light and by his grace, I’ll move forward.

My endeavor, with Captain Higgins Gear, the non-profit we’ve established to build a homeless shelter in our parish, will move forward. I will continue to be a cop, I’ve got many options.

And I will prayerfully reflect upon the choices I’ll make over these next few weeks.

In closing, I make this promise, to the citizens of St. Landry Parish, the badge I turned in today, doesn’t belong to my Sheriff. It belongs to you… to you the people, my fellow children of God of every creed and color… And it’s to you, the people, that I promise this day, if it be Gods will… I will wear your badge again… and it will shine.

I thank you all for attending, and I’ll do my best to respectfully answer any questions, anyone gathered here might have for me today.

[Reporter:]
You mentioned that you will continue to be a cop? Where?

I have many options, Ma’am – I’m – I’m currently a constable, the badge I have on right now, I’ve been a constable for 8th District for the St. Landry Parish since 2009, that’s a law enforcement position, I continue to carry that position but I’ll have options, my phone is already ringing.
