FAST FIVE: California Sheriff Slams Gov. Newsom's 'Dictatorial' Lockdowns, Won't Be 'Blackmailed, Bullied Or Used As Muscle' To Enforce
These closures and stay-at-home orders are flat-out ridiculous.
Watch: Entire statement: “We have all recently learned of the new regional approach to combating COVID-19 and the pending closure and stay-at-home orders from our governor.
We were also told that a there was a potential he would be withholding federal and state funding from counties who did not enforce the orders.
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.” The dictatorial attitude toward California residents while dining in luxury, traveling, keeping his business open and sending his kids to in-person private schools is very telling about his attitude toward California residents, his feelings about the virus, and it is extremely hypocritical.
While the Governor's office and the state has threatened action against violators, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department will not be blackmailed, bullied, or used as muscle against Riverside County residents in the enforcement of the Governor's orders.
