Videos with Deputies and other LEOs tripping out on power are doing an amazing amount of damage to cops everywhere and I guess Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling has had enough with unconstitutional laws issued by a power hungry governor.
RACINE COUNTY, Wis. — Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling issued a statement saying his department would not enforce Gov. Tony Evers’ safer-at-home order and said the “overreaching measures” would have dire consequences.
Evers extended the safer-at-home order until May 26 in an effort to continue to slow the spread of the coronavirus throughout the state. The decision was met with opposition from Republican leadership in the state Legislature.
“The overreaching measures taken by State government will have dire lifetime consequences for businesses, homeowners, and families,” Schmaling’s statement reads.
“I took an oath to uphold the constitutional rights of our citizens and I can not in good faith participate in the destruction of Racine County businesses or interfere in the freedoms granted to all of us by our Constitution,” he continued.
The powers that be in the county lost their minds and are “disappointed” that the Sheriff will not come down hard on moms out with their kids trying to get some fresh air. The sheriff was smart by stating this:
Schmaling said his department “will continue to concentrate our resources and efforts at keeping our roads safe and protecting our citizens from criminal activity” but will leave the investigating and enforcement of public health orders to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
Well played. They are trained to be Law Enforcement nor Health Enforcement. He is saving his deputies from possible infection and the ire of the citizenship.
