A sheriff in New York state isn’t about to stay silent about the latest corrupt Democrat plot. He blew his top when his so called superiors want different laws for different groups. Constitutional minded law enforcement officers aren’t about to go after and lock down ordinary citizens for sketchy reasons.
Sheriff blows his top
Americans from coast-to-coast have been complaining about the lockdowns but now law enforcement officers are speaking up as well. Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino is “fed up” with liberal politicians that have ordered police to stand down to rioters.
The “hypocrisy” became unbearable when the progressives demanded enforcement of coronavirus restrictions.
“Some of these same governors and politicians across this country have spent the last six months telling you police are bad, police have to reform, police get up in the morning and want to shoot people.”
Nothing could be further than the truth the Sheriff explains. His bosses and others in Democrat cities across America are making things worse instead of better.
According to Sheriff Giardino, “They’ve reinforced that narrative. They’ve stood down.” Mayors and Governors “had police departments stand down in their cities, allowed protesters and rioters to take over police precincts and damage and vandalize buildings.”
Now, they want to add insult to injury. Liberal politicians are after law abiding citizens.
An upside down world
Democrat officials “want to go after citizens who want to go about their life, who aren’t rioting and looting and damaging things.”
The sheriff isn’t happy about the topsy-turvy upside down world of liberal nonsense that prevails today. He believes the citizens are too. “I think people are fed up with their hypocrisy.”
Americans are praising Sheriff Giardino for his “bravery in standing up to tyrannical politicians.” Earlier in November he announced he would refuse to enforce mandatory lockdowns.
That made him the first in New York to declare mutiny, but he won’t be the last. Already, “three other sheriffs in New York State have come forward to say that they will not enforce Governor Cuomo’s Thanksgiving limits.”
After the Governor made it official, so did the Fulton County Sheriff. “With regard to the Thanksgiving Executive Order, the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office will NOT be enforcing it against our County residents.”
He’s not even sure it’s legal. “Frankly, I am not sure it could sustain a Constitutional challenge in Court for several reasons including your house is your castle.”
Not only is he a Sheriff, Giardino has a law degree. “I couldn’t in good faith attempt to defend it in court, so I won’t.”
His colleague Michael Zurlo over in Saratoga County added, “I can’t see how devoting our resources to counting cars in citizens’ driveways or investigating how much turkey and dressing they’ve purchased is for the public good.”
