Yet another sheriff in California said his department will not enforce the governor’s latest lockdown orders.
In a video released Friday, Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco called Gavin Newsom’s orders hypocritical and ridiculous.
Bianco added the Democrat governor’s orders are crushing the local economy. He also took aim at Newsom’s threat to cut funding for districts that choose not to comply with the orders.
Bianco went on to accuse Newsom of attempting to shift attention from his own wrongdoings by turning the public against law enforcement.
“These closures and stay-at-home orders are flat-out ridiculous,” Bianco stated. “The metrics used for closures are unbelievably faulty and are not representative of true numbers and are disastrous for Riverside County.”

Bianco reiterated that his department would not be enforcing any of the governor’s stay-at-home orders. Riverside County joins a number of other Southern California counties, including Los Angeles and Orange County, in its refusal to enforce Newsom’s orders.
