I take it you didn't bother to read the entire article before you posted, including the rebuttal that the author linked to for clarification, written by an actual Colorado Sheriff. That's not what the new law is doing.

it might be a bit different when the secret service ends up getting arrested instead of the sheriff.

It wouldn't be the Secret Services venue anyway.. If something like this were to happen, it would be the FBI and what they can do within a state is limited.

It's sad that so many know so little about the separation of powers and the US Constitution.

One part of the explanation is B.S. A law enforcement officer does not need special permission to act outside of his jurisdiction if he see's a crime being committed.

I can act if I see a crime being committed. I can hold a suspect until local law enforcement arrives. There was just an example of this on the news last night.

An unruly person at an airport was fighting with a TSA officer. An officer from elsewhere going through the line saw what was happening and jumped the person and held them down until more help arrived.
