Fresno Sheriff Won’t Enforce Newsom’s Stay-At-Home Orders Because Her Department Is Too Busy Doing This…

(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.

  1. Here again something to stir up the people who do not bother to check out anything.
    Now bail is a big business, so what is the difference if the person is released on paid bail or without paid bail, the person is still on the street, the people who are effected the most and pay in many differt ways is the minority poor, now proportiently every study has proven they do not committ more crime than any one else but the lack of money for bail or a lawyer puts more of them in jails than any other race in this USA.
    Now you very seldom see a rich or connected person denied bail or go to the same type of prison as the minorities.
    It some just never miss a chance to make sure anyone who has ever been to Prison never gets their life back or qualifies for any good job in the USA.

    • What difference does it make if they are indigent or wealthy? The only reason they are facing bail is that they committed a crime. Why bother arresting anyone? Fire the cops. Disband the judicial system. Look at all the tax dollars that would save. And I’m sure you would feel much safer. No?

    • Robert doesn’t seem to understand how real life works. I live in NYC and sadly our idiot leaders have done away with bail in most cases. Crime is up as a result of it. A very famous case was the bank robber who was arrested for holding up a bank, was released due to the no bail laws, and immediately robbed six more banks. When he was arrested again, he immediately thanked the politicians who passed the criminal support law that mandated no bail.

      Someone has to post bail and that requires they put something up as collateral as a way to increase the odds the criminal won’t flee. In many cases it is the parents who put up their home as collateral. Many criminals don’t want to cause their relative to lose their home or life savings. It doesn’t always work but it does increase the odds that they will show up for their trial.

      Robert is also in error when he talks about helping a criminal get their life back. No bail laws aren’t about punishment, they are about increasing the odds the criminal shows up for trial. Getting their life back is an issue for parole and employment after they are convicted and do the time.

  2. Back in the late 1950’s the godz of govern-ment ran a commercial on “black and white tv” IF YOU CAN’T DO THE TIME, DON’T DO THE CRIME!
    VERY SIMPLE AND TO THE POINT, HAVING NOTHING YO DO WITH SKIN COLOR, ETHNIC ORIGIN, OR A PERSON’S ECONOMIC STATUS!

    THIS WAS A TIME WHEN PRISON WAS NOT A PLACE YOU WANTED TO GO!
    ________
    Please do not miss the subliminal message in this!

    THE CONCEPT OF NO BAIL FOR A CRIME IS PURE (BS) BRAVO SIERRA! There must be a deterrent in advance of crime!
    SIGN ON THE GATE: (IN ENGLISH NOT 57 DIFFERENT LANGUAGES)
    THIS FENCE IS HERE FOR YOUR PROTECTION!

    UNDERSTAND, I AM NOT SUGGESTION VIOLENCE OF ANY FORM!”
    Example; In florida, two home invaders shot and killed by homeowner! (No bail needed) AND, “they WILL NOT BE BREAKING INTO ANYMORE HOMES!”
