California Sheriffs Tell Newsom They Won’t Enforce COVID Curfew

Did you know that Gavin Newsom failed all of his science classes in high school and college?  What other reason for him to declare a curfew due to the virus?  Why does he believe that the virus is more deadly between the hours of 10:00pm and 5:00am than in the rest of the day?

“Several California sheriffs are telling Gov. Gavin Newsom (D.) that they are planning not to enforce the state’s new curfew rules.

“We’re not going to make criminals of normally law-abiding citizens,” Fresno County sheriff Margaret Mims said. Officials in four other law-enforcement agencies in the state also said they do not plan to treat gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic as criminal, according to Fox 26.

Mims argued that the police have higher priorities, including “taking guns away from gang members, stopping narcotic trafficking, and saving children from internet predators.” She also said there is little data showing that activities between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. play a significant role in spreading the virus.”

Newsom has issued  an order that law enforcement will not enforce.  At least they understand their responsibilities to the community, even if the Governor is working overtime to kill our economy and isolate us from one another.

California Sheriffs Tell Newsom They Won’t Enforce COVID Curfew

Several California sheriffs are telling Gov. Gavin Newsom (D.) that they are planning not to enforce the state’s new curfew rules.

“We’re not going to make criminals of normally law-abiding citizens,” Fresno County sheriff Margaret Mims said. Officials in four other law-enforcement agencies in the state also said they do not plan to treat gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic as criminal, according to Fox 26.

Mims argued that the police have higher priorities, including “taking guns away from gang members, stopping narcotic trafficking, and saving children from internet predators.” She also said there is little data showing that activities between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. play a significant role in spreading the virus.

Newsom has come under fire in recent days for visiting a high-end Napa Valley restaurant for a lobbyist’s birthday. The governor claimed he and other guests followed social distancing guidelines during the party, but photos circulated online showing the group socializing in close quarters, indoors, and without masks.

Other police officers in the state echoed Mims’s position and said they would encourage compliance and boost education efforts about the dangers of the virus’s spread without arresting people. Sacramento County sheriff Scott Jones said his department would not enforce the curfew, limitations on social gatherings, or masks mandates.

The governor unveiled the new restrictions just ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday and amid a surge in cases across the state. The restrictions place a ban on nonessential activity between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. in counties that contain 94 percent of the state’s population. Some counties, like Los Angeles County, have also imposed limits on gatherings of people celebrating the holidays.

In some parts of the Golden State, county officials have taken issue with Newsom’s rules about closing restaurants and businesses. San Bernardino County supervisors this week announced their intent to sue Newsom on the grounds that “one-size-fits-all” coronavirus rules don’t suit the conditions in many communities.

    God Bless our California Sheriffs. At least there are a few people left in this corrupted state that aren’t buying the panic, the mind control, the set-up for total socialist control over everyone’s life. We kill millions of babies in the abortion clinics, approve vaping for future cancer victims, allow all the vice industry to stay open, but the law abiding, hard working citizens must wear masks and don’t go out after dark because the big mean old virus is just waiting around the corner to get us? Who’s waiting around the corner are the commy-socialists who want our total allegiance to their will. Time to turn our backs on this nonsense and go on living our lives, running our businesses, and enjoying our holidays. Let’s see what the paparati finds dictator Nuisance doing and with how many over the holidays.

    The only one I found supporting it is Sheriff Grove in SD Co saying ‘wear your damn mask! “. all the others I looked at are saying nope or ‘Not t kinda.. other….” even gutless wonder mustache Bill is not enforcing it! Though they will still ‘enforce” business closures, church closures and locking us out of public meetings!

  3. Why should they when Newsom, Garcetti and the BLM movement that they pander to is reducing money to the departments and have forced many into early retirement due to the environment these nasty, spineless politicians have reduced law enforcement to. They bow down to the Marxist, anarchists, paid for agitators called BLM while pontificating to the public they have no interest in supporting Los Angele’s finest men and women of law enforcement. These politicians are cowards and feckless losers who should be lucky the enite force hasn’t left for better pastures, somewhere where they are supported and respected.
