Florida sheriff's stern message to heroin dealers compared to ISIL video

<p>In an unusual video posted on the Lake County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page, the sheriff recited a hostile message to the area’s heroin dealers.</p> <p>Sheriff Peyton Grinnell, flanked by officers dressed in <span class="caps">SWAT</span> uniforms, delivered his speech looking directly into the camera. </p> <p>The senior officer reassured members of the public that they “can remain anonymous” when providing information about dealers “pushing this poison”.</p> <p>He then threatens the dealers directly with murder charges and tells them “we are coming for you.” </p> <p>The video received thousands of comments <a href="https://www.facebook.com/LakeCountySO/videos/1632015356828157/">on Facebook</a> where some compared it to footage produced by <span class="caps">ISIL</span>.</p>
