California Sheriff Slams Gov. Newsom’s ‘Dictatorial’ Lockdowns, Won’t Be ‘Blackmailed, Bullied Or Used As Muscle’ To Enforce, by Tyler Durden

To his credit, at least one sheriff is refusing to enforce His Royal Highness Newsome’s decrees. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

The sheriff of California’s fourth-largest county has slammed Gov. Gavin Newsom over the most recent COVID-19 lockdown orders, and says that his department won’t be “blackmailed, bullied or used as muscle” against residents during the pandemic, after they were told “there was a potential he would be withholding federal and state funding from counties who did not enforce the orders.”

In a Friday evening video posted to social media (which currently has 4,700 ‘thumbs up’ vs. 141 ‘thumbs down’), Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco called out Newsom’s “dictatorial attitude toward California residents while dining in luxury, traveling, keeping his business open and sending his kids to in-person private schools,” which he called “extremely hypocritical.”

“Ironically, it wasn’t that long ago our same governor loudly and publicly argued how wrong it was for the President of the United States to withhold federal funding from states not complying with federal laws.”

These closures and stay-at-home orders are flat-out ridiculous. The metrics used for closure are unbelievably faulty and are not representative of true numbers and are disastrous for Riverside County,” Bianco says, adding that Newsom is “expecting us to arrest anyone violating these orders, cite them and take their money, close their businesses, make them stay in their homes, and take away their civil liberties or he will punish all of us.”

Bianco’s advice? Use common sense and “act responsibly” to avoid contracting the virus.
