The DUCK DYNASTY drama continues!

In the wake of A&E’s outrageous decision to suspend Phil Robertson from its most profitable show, the Sheriff of Douglas County, Louisiana has told the network it will no longer cooperate with filming in his jurisdiction.

“A&E has suspended Phil Robertson for talking about his conservative Christian beliefs,” Sheriff Phil Miller wrote on his personal Facebook page.” None of us are without sin and I am not judging anyone. I am sure A&E made what they believe is a good business decision. Many people who disagree with A&E might choose to remain silent and there was a time when I might have done the same, but no longer. In my mind the punishment is unreasonable.

“I know it will not matter to A&E, but it will make me feel better. A&E has produced more than a half dozen programs with the assistance of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office. They will not do any more with my assistance while I am sheriff. It is time for someone other than Hollywood and the news media to stand up for what is right!”
