California Sheriff’s Departments Reject Newsom’s Lockdown Order

California sheriff have had it with the rich, privileged dilettante governor.  They are no longer taking his pronouncements, executive orders or mandates seriously.  These adults understand Newsom is immature and does not know what he is doing or talking about.

“”While the governor’s office and the state [have] threatened action against violators, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department will not be blackmailed, bullied, or used as muscle against Riverside County residents in the enforcement of the governor’s orders,” Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco said Friday. 

Bianco criticized Newsom’s “dictatorial attitude” toward Californians, requiring police to arrest, ticket, or close the businesses of violators, lest counties be punished with funding cuts. The sheriff also accused Newsom of attempting to distract from his own hypocrisy and irresponsibility, since the governor has dined out, kept his own winery open, and sent his children to private school.”

The time has come to get a real governor.  First we must Recall Gavin.  To do this web site and download the Recall petition:  www.recallgavin2020.com    

California Sheriff’s Departments Reject Newsom’s Lockdown Order

Two California counties are refusing to enforce Gov. Gavin Newsom’s (D.) new lockdown orders, which one county sheriff said are “disastrous.” 

“While the governor’s office and the state [have] threatened action against violators, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department will not be blackmailed, bullied, or used as muscle against Riverside County residents in the enforcement of the governor’s orders,” Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco said Friday. 

Bianco criticized Newsom’s “dictatorial attitude” toward Californians, requiring police to arrest, ticket, or close the businesses of violators, lest counties be punished with funding cuts. The sheriff also accused Newsom of attempting to distract from his own hypocrisy and irresponsibility, since the governor has dined out, kept his own winery open, and sent his children to private school.

“It appears part of the new goal is to shift attention away from his and others’ personal behavior with a ‘do as I say, not as I do’ attitude by turning public opinion against California sheriffs,” Bianco said.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Department also rejected Newsom’s order. Sheriff Don Barnes on Saturday said compliance with the lockdown is a “matter of personal responsibility and not a matter of law enforcement” and said his deputies will not respond to calls about face coverings, social gatherings, or stay-at-home orders.

“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,” Barnes said in a statement.

The California lockdown was announced on Thursday, weeks after Newsom was caught dining with at least 12 individuals at the French Laundry, a high-priced Napa Valley restaurant. The governor claimed he and his wife had followed social-distancing guidelines, but photos released following his initial statement show him violating numerous rules by talking maskless and in close proximity to people from various households, including California Medical Association officials.

The sheriffs’ statements come two weeks after several county sheriffs told Newsom they would not enforce his curfew order, while San Bernardino County officials announced they are planning a lawsuit against the governor’s “one-size-fits-all” restrictions.

  1. Chad Bianco is not alone. Other counties may not have made a public announcement like Bianco but in Shasta county the sheriff has made a quiet statement that he will not enforce Guv Nuisance’s edicts and so has the Redding chief of police. Good for them and Nuisance will not tell me who or how many guests I can have in my home. Start by closing Plumpjack winery.

  2. William Hicks says

    This is the only glimmer of hope in California

  3. Everyone keeps calling for newsom’s recall but as long as the top two is in effect if newsom goes all that will replace him is his clone or worse

  4. William Hicks says

    County Supervisor’s need to make the same commitment or be recalled.
