California Sheriffs' Lockdown Rebellion
California Sheriffs' Lockdown RebellionFollow @KnightsTempOrg
As the Democrat election-cheats move to tighten their corona plandemic grip on Americans, more and more signs of lockdown rebellion are breaking out all over the USA. Decent law-enforcers are stepping up to the plate to defend freedom and common sense.
Just a day after Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco told California Governor Gavin Newsom that his department won't be "blackmailed, bullied or used as muscle" against residents during the pandemic, Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes announced that deputies would not enforce the regional stay-at-home order that began on Dec. 6 throughout Southern California.
“Compliance with health orders is a matter of personal responsibility and not a matter of law enforcement,” Barnes said in a Dec. 5 news release.
“Orange County Sheriff’s deputies will not be dispatched to, or respond to, calls for service to enforce compliance with face coverings, social gatherings, or stay-at-home orders only.”
It is not the first time the sheriff has declared deputies would not enforce a state order over coronavirus restrictions. When Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered a curfew in November for all California counties in the purple tier amid climbing coronavirus cases, Barnes said deputies would not be enforcing that order either.
n his statement, Barnes said deputies would continue to respond to calls for potential criminal behavior and the protection of life and property, actions he said remain “consistent with the protections of constitutional rights.”
But he said the “ever-changing nature” of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home orders and the increase in COVID-19 case numbers “bring additional uncertainty and stress to California residents.”
“To put the onus on law enforcement to enforce these orders against law-abiding citizens who are already struggling through difficult circumstances, while at the same time criticizing law enforcement and taking away tools to do our jobs, is both contradictory and disingenuous,” he said.
He cautioned that people should remain diligent in preventing the spread of the disease, and should take the recommended public health precautions like wearing face coverings and practicing social distancing.
“Conversely, policy makers must not penalize residents for earning a livelihood, safeguarding their mental health, or enjoying our most cherished freedoms,” Barnes stated.
