California sheriff refuses to enforce unconstitutional stay-at-home orders

May 7, 2020

  While the governor of California, Gavin Newson, is rounding people up, separating them from their families, and forcibly locking them up with an army of “contact tracers”we have a story of at least one California sheriff who refuses to make criminals out of Californians who simply want to exercise their Constitutionally guaranteed rights. Here is more:

Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco reaffirmed his stance on not enforcing stringent stay-at-home orders, telling the Riverside County Board of Supervisors this week that he refuses to “make criminals out of business owners, single moms, and otherwise healthy individuals for exercising their constitutional rights.”

Government “ordered residents into their homes, closed their businesses, made them wear masks, forbid them from going to church, and eliminated constitutional freedoms put in place over 200 years ago,” he explained.

“In the name of a public health crisis, our civil liberties and constitutional protections were placed on hold,” he continued.

Bianco said he did not enforce the stay-at-home order from the beginning, partly because he “trusted our residents’ ability to do the right thing without fear of being arrested” and emphasized that he continues to hold that position:

I knew they could be trusted to act as responsible adults, and I was correct. As we continue, I will reinforce my position. Not only do we not have the resources to enforce unreasonable orders, I refuse to make criminals out of business owners, single moms, and otherwise healthy individuals for exercising their constitutional rights. I believe Riverside County residents are responsible enough to proceed cautiously.

  He went on to say there cannot be a new normal, a term that sends shivers down my spine:

“There cannot be a new normal,” he warned, citing the country’s “fundamental freedoms of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

“Any new normal is a direct attack on the basic rights, which set us apart and make us the greatest country in the world,” he added.

  Personally I thought the time for civil disobedience was two months ago but at least we are finally starting to see people push back against these tyrannical orders and now we have a sheriff in California who is refusing to go against an unconstitutional order. Things might finally be headed in the right direction after two months of “voluntary compliance.”

    This article confirms my basic theory about life in a progressive utopia. Riddle me this: why would trust and choose to live under a government that does not trust you? It seems the Sheriff of Riverside County gets it. Mine does here in Mohave County, Arizona. We are neighbors separated only by the Colorado River but compared to the rest of the adjacent state we are light years apart when it comes to the subject of liberty. Search up the public statements of our Sheriff, Doug Schuster and our county board of supervisors and you will see what I mean. And this is why liberty loving folks are voting with their feet and are moving here from the coastal progressive utospias.

      It is good to know there are some of them out there, I am glad to hear your sheriff is on our side. We do hear these stories every once in awhile but not as often as I would like. Perhaps there are more out there than I think but they just don’t get the coverage.

    Here in New Jersey, Obama-Clinton country, his majesty Governor Phil Murphy just yesterday added another 30 days onto our sentence. No surprising given it is illegal here to drive with snow on your car and facing fines of not less than $200 or more than $1,000 for each offense. Whether it be clearing snow off or ones car or not french kissing a fellow citizen who may or may not be infected with the Hunan Virus citizens are deemed incapable of employing common sense so NJ’s STASI is here to keep us safe.

    Good for him! 👍👏
    There’s a couple of Sheriff’s upholding their oath – uphold the Constitution.
    Police have recruited those who say: “We’re just doing our job” – no conscience of what’s ‘really right’ nor do they care (Globalist Hive drones).
    The weeds are exposing themselves – it’s all out warfare to Keep & Retain their Gravy Train!
