California Sheriff Says She's Too Busy 'Re-Arresting' Criminals to Enforce Lockdown Order

A lot of criminals who were released from jail due to fears of COVID-19 spread have resorted to committing crimes, once again. Go figure, right?

One sheriff says her people are too busy with the criminals to enforce California’s draconian lockdown order.

Check this out, via The Daily Wire:

On Tuesday, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims of California said she is not enforcing Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom’s lockdown order, noting that her team has their “hands full trying to re-arrest” criminals who are out on “zero-dollar bail,” a policy implemented in 2019.

In August of 2018, California set in motion their “zero-dollar bail” policy.

Mims noted, “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.

It’s no secret that the Golden State has become a cesspool of liberal nonsense. But what is to be expected when citizens continually put the likes of Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi in office?

From Fox News:

SAN FRANCISCO – In a lighted garage on one of San Francisco’s busiest streets, a young man in baggy trousers and messy brown hair pulled down his pants. He had been hiding two pairs of stolen jeans with the tags still on them. He handed them to another man waiting nearby, took some money, pulled up his pants and headed back into another store on Market Street — home to the city’s high-end designers and big-chain retail shops.

The incident wasn’t a one-off. These brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value. The decision to downgrade theft of property valued below the arbitrary figure from felony to misdemeanor, together with selective enforcement that focuses on more “serious” crimes, has resulted in thieves knowing they can brazenly shoplift and merchants knowing the police will not respond to their complaints, say critics.

More Gavin Newsom…

Most people might not have figured that California could become an even larger dumpster fire when Newsom took over as governor for Jerry Brown. But Newsom is proving them wrong.

Things can get much worse in the Golden State – and have.

They are banning and taxing at an extraordinary rate.

Not only did Cali cut off power to over one million residents to “prevent” wildfires (and at least person person has died because of it), but the liberal overlords of the state have decided to pay college athletes, demand colleges carry abortion drugs, and now they’re banning fur.

Is this what people were demanding? What about the illegal alien problem? Or the homeless population problem? The ridiculously high rent? The out-of-control gas prices?

Shouldn’t those issues be addressed first?

Let’s face it, people. California politicians honestly believe they know what you need better than you do.

Don’t fight it. Just move. Go to Arizona or Texas. Then and only then, will California will change.
