Definition of civil authority: a person who has the authority to decide (the power to do so), and to enforce (the duty to do so).
We’ve seen this before with both our own characters and in the world of the television shows. When we first enter a crime scene, the only authority the police have (and therefore the only authority that we have to arrest a suspect) is their own. But they’re not the only authority. The legal system is an additional source of authority, and a source of enforcement.
The same applies to civil authority. Civil authorities have the power to decide to whom they delegate their authority and to whom they dont. But they dont have the power to decide not to enforce the duty nor to enforce the law.
Civil authorities are people who are tasked with enforcing their duties. A civil authority is someone who doesn’t have a specific duty and doesn’t have a specific duty to enforce. These people might be an elected official, or a private citizen, or a judge, or a sheriff. These are important because they all have a duty to enforce the law, and they all have a duty not to enforce.
And what is the difference between a civil authority and a sheriff? Well, a sheriff is a person who is appointed to enforce the law. They are responsible for enforcing the laws of the state. A sheriff may have the authority to make arrests and issue citations, but they have no specific authority to enforce the laws of the state, because the laws are created by the state.
Well, basically, sheriff is a person who has the authority to enforce the law. A civil authority, on the other hand, is a different kind of official, a person who is appointed by the state to enforce the laws of the state.
The “civil authority” is a different kind of official, and that means it’s a different kind of official. A civil authority is a person who has the authority to enforce the laws of the state. A sheriff is a sheriff is a sheriff is a sheriff. When it comes to enforcing the law, there are two kinds of laws: state laws and federal laws. The state laws are created by the state, and the federal laws are created by the federal government.
I think you’re right to say that the civil authorities are not just “the people” but are also a separate part of the government. There are two sets of rules that govern the state. One set of rules came from the government, and the other set of rules came from the people.
What civil authority is, is the rule that the people have adopted, which is the common law as we understand it. It is the rule that the people adopted to govern themselves as a nation.
In case you were wondering why I was quoting the dictionary definition of civil authority, it’s because if you have a state that has a president, and the law has been passed to make the president the head of the state, then that is a civil authority. The problem with that definition is that it’s not universally accepted.
