HENDERSON COUNTY, Tenn. — Some residents took to the streets Wednesday in support of their sheriff after he refused to remove a certain phrase from his department’s patrol cars. Sheriff Brian Duke refused a request by the Freedom From Religion Foundation to remove the “In God We Trust” stickers from his deputy’s vehicles. Around midday Wednesday, a few residents showed their support for Duke’s stance while waving flags and holding signs. Duke simply replied “NO” to the request from the group earlier this week. The group says Duke shouldn’t make a religious declaration on patrol vehicles.
