(Right Country) – Mayhem has ensued all across the country as a result of the coronavirus. Tyrant governors have been forcing law-abiding, healthy citizens into quarantine while also shutting down many local and national businesses. Millions have been forced onto unemployment, churches have been told they cannot hold services as pastors are cited with violations and even arrested, and many important healthcare facilities and services have been halted.
None of that, however, tops the absurdity of states releasing convicted criminals back out onto the streets in some bizarre effort to “slow the spread.” Not only has California been releasing convicted felons before they have served their full sentences but they’re also up against ridiculous criminal justice “reform” that has allowed for criminals to be released from jail after committing a crime for zero dollars in bail. You know, since bail is so discriminatory and all.
One sheriff in California has announced she has no intentions of upholding dictator Governor Newsom’s overreaching stay-at-home orders since she and her department are too busy rounding up criminals that should be in jail but have been set free to continue committing crimes.
Breitbart has the story:
Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims said Tuesday that she would not be able to enforce Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home orders because she was too busy re-arresting accused criminals set free under the state’s new “zero-dollar bail” policy.
Mims appeared on the Trevor Carey Show, discussing the challenges facing law enforcement during the coronavirus pandemic, as well as the economic hardship. She pointed out that government employees were also vulnerable to the economic damage, because the decline in tax revenues meant that state and local governments would cut services.
Carey asked her: “I’ve heard multiple sheriffs around the nation state they will not enforce their governors’ shelter-in-place orders. Is that your position?
“That is my position. We do not stop the public to find out what they’re doing when they’re not sheltering in place. We don’t ask those questions, we don’t ask if they’re ‘essential’. We’ve got our hands full trying to re-arrest people that are released due to zero-dollar bail. So we’ve got other things that are on our mind that are more important than stopping normally law-abiding citizens.”
Fresno is the fifth-largest city in California and the hub of the state’s agricultural Central Valley. As of Wednesday, the county had recorded 1,014 coronavirus cases and 13 deaths.
California adopted zero-dollar bail after criminal justice reform advocates argued that cash bail was discriminatory.
Leftist leaders and lawmakers are only concerned about executing the leftist agenda. They have completely forsaken the will of the people and this “crisis” is no longer about a virus.
If there are more criminals in the streets, there will be more mayhem, and when there is more chaos and disorder citizens will be more likely to accept government overstepping and “assistance.” California is a mess right now. Exactly how the left wants it.
It’s time for CA residents to demand change and the best way to do it is at the ballot box.
