Sacramento Sheriff’s Office won’t enforce CA Gov. Newsom’s new mask order

Sacramento Sheriff’s Office won’t enforce CA Gov. Newsom’s new mask order

As Newsom re-mandates public mask wearing, a look at the statistics proves to be very damning to fear-mongering.

As the riots have receded from the headlines, the press is renewing its focus on the Wuhan Coronavirus pandemic.

For example, there are breathless reports about new outbreaks in California.

California reported the biggest single-day spike in coronavirus cases since the pandemic started, according to an alarming report.

The number of new infections in the Golden State soared to 4,224 Wednesday — dwarfing its previous highest record of 3,683 on June 12, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

California officials attributed the increase in new cases to more testing in the state, along with delays in lab results.

Of the 2,100 new cases reported in LA County, nearly half came from “from an earlier testing period,” the California Department of Public Health’s website notes.

It is heartening to see a news report note the increase in testing as part of its discussion about new cases. However, in a rush to contain the freedom genie that has been released in the wake of Black Lives Matters demonstrations, Governor Gavin Newsom is re-mandating that masks be worn in all public places.

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday ordered all Californians to wear face coverings while in public or high-risk settings, including when shopping, taking public transit or seeking medical care, after growing concerns that an increase in coronavirus cases has been caused by residents failing to voluntarily take that precaution.

Newsom’s order came a week after Orange County rescinded a requirement for residents to wear masks and as other counties across California were debating whether to join local jurisdictions that had mandated face coverings.

“Simply put, we are seeing too many people with faces uncovered — putting at risk the real progress we have made in fighting the disease,” Newsom said in a statement. “California’s strategy to restart the economy and get people back to work will only be successful if people act safely and follow health recommendations. That means wearing a face covering, washing your hands and practicing physical distancing.”

Under state law, residents who violate the new requirement could be charged with a misdemeanor and potentially face a financial penalty. The Sacramento Sheriff’s Office has already announced it will not enforce this order:

In a statement Friday, the Sheriff’s Office recommended people should be “exercising safe practices” during the pandemic, including wearing masks, but said it would be “inappropriate” would criminally enforce the governor’s order, or target people and businesses for failing to do so.

“Due to the minor nature of the offense, the potential for negative outcomes during enforcement encounters, and anticipating the various ways in which the order may be violated, it would be inappropriate for deputies to criminally enforce the Governor’s mandate,” a statement from Sheriff Scott Jones said.

It must be noted that many medical and health professionals are questioning the efficacy of the face masks being used.

One study, published April 6 in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine, found that they did not. That study, led by South Korean researchers, involved asking four patients with COVID-19 to cough into a petri dish 7.8 inches (20 centimeters) away. The patients coughed without masks, while wearing a disposable surgical mask and again wearing a 100% cotton mask.

Neither mask meaningfully decreased the viral load coughed onto the petri dishes. But experts not involved in the study who were contacted by Live Science were hesitant to put much stock into the findings. The researchers didn’t look at distances beyond 7.8 inches to see if droplets didn’t travel as far while people were wearing masks, Chu said.

One aspect of the coverage to keep in mind are the “statistics” being used to make the case that it is time to panic over a disease that has in infection fatality rate that has been substantially lowered over the course of the pandemic. Focusing on California, let’s see how the hospitalization rate is being reported in Orange County:

Orange County has experienced a 76% jump in coronavirus intensive care unit hospitalizations in the last six weeks.

76% seems like a fairly big number, until you look at the underlying data:

https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-06-17/growing-signs-of-increased-coronavirus-hospitalizations-in-some-parts-of-california

So, hospitalizations have “jumped” all of 101 cases, hardly the level to overwhelm medical staff. Clearly, the curve has been flattened. Furthermore, the report said the hospitalizations are “linked” to COVID-19. Translation: The patient is there because of the effects of the virus OR has a serious non-COVID condition AND an infection.

In conclusion: The statistic is meaningless.

Let’s take a look at the dreaded “death” statistic, to see if that is any more meaningful. The state had 52 deaths today so far recorded, and the trend line looks as if it is slowly dropping:

Additionally, it is important to note that given the broad application of “COVID-19” to death certificates, it is difficult to ascertain whether the virus caused the death or was simply part of the overall medical issues that led to death in these cases.

But it is clear that the curve is also flattened. Furthermore, vaccines and effective treatments are swiftly becoming available that will help prevent more serious illness and fatalities in the future.

Clearly, the press intends to renew is panic-porn reporting about the virus, but a detailed look at the statistics proves to be very damning to fear-mongering.

That’s enough to drive Gavin to drink… again. Good.

I’m sure there are plenty of California Karens thrilled at the opportunity to berate those who ignore the order.

    I had a Karen (an elderly dude) berate me for going the wrong way down a grocery store aisle.

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to randian. | June 20, 2020 at 8:24 pm

      You as well? I had a Karen of the female kind do the same. I calmly remarked I was from England so rolled my cart on the opposite way the Americans do.

      No ‘karens’ mess with me.

      I’m too scary looking.

      One-way aisles are actually counter-productive, as I discovered by actually adhering to them in a Walmart. What I found was that by following the directional markings of the aisles I was forced to pass by many more customers (who were in aisles I otherwise wouldn’t have passed through) than if I had just accessed those aisles that were necessary for my shopping. Naturally, this raised my chances of passing by an infected individual.

      Also, by causing me to walk a longer distance than I would have otherwise (by having to walk the length of some aisles just so I could access another aisle in the “right” direction), I spent more total time in the store – again increasing the potential for exposure.

        Methinks it’s the old old old marketing trick of making customers shop the entire store.

        That is the technique that always puts basic such as bread and milk at the very back of the store so customers have to pass by all the other products.

        Where I live right from the start in the Walmart and other stores that taped arrows down on all the aisles, there were just as many people going in the opposite direction than the arrows. Now in the Walmart stores and others I’m basically the only person paying any attention to the arrows and then 99.9% of all the other customers just ignore them. That’s a great thing.

      My store put the damned arrows going the wrong way on the aisles I normally use

I am dealing very well with the opening up because I never really shut down in the first place.

I said a long long time ago that covid was looking for individuals standing on the death cliff, and giving them a little push. The approx 10% increase in deaths we have seen, which over a years time will fall closer to 5%, we be negated by a 5% decrease next year, because that 5% have already been pulled from the death pool.

Mask wearing has become a new mental illness in my book. Mandating them is almost a terrorist act.

These ‘masks’ are the new swastika and/or Red Guard armbands.

This whole sedition is extremely well thought-out – even down to the uniforms of ‘masks.

Soros should be hunted down and killed like bin Laden was.

His grotesque treason included, Obama is turning out to be one of the most sinister figures in world history.

Newsom should be run out of office: by being opposed by Richard Grenell:

loot and riot, no charges, walk away free, no mask pay a fine

BigHairTsunami | June 20, 2020 at 3:06 pm

Take this with a grain of salt. Sacramento is the capital of California. It’s where the legislature meets. Those Democrat politicians don’t want to wear masks. Sheriff doing them favors in return for something. Make sense now?

    Dusty Pitts in reply to BigHairTsunami. | June 21, 2020 at 12:54 am

    And the other million-plus county residents benefit from this quid pro quo… why?

    What would have prevented the sheriff from simply, quietly, letting state honchos off on the mask order while enforcing it whole hog on the peons?

    Or did you think state officials are the only people who live there?

    DaveGinOly in reply to BigHairTsunami. | June 21, 2020 at 2:06 am

    Government officials almost never behave as if the laws applied to them. By the frequency they get away with this practice, the belief is effectively correct.

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | June 20, 2020 at 3:21 pm

Gov Gruesome needs a permantent mask covering his entire face.

Perhaps use KrAzY Glue to affix it???

He just scares too many horses and children…..

Under state law, residents who violate the new requirement could be charged with a misdemeanor and potentially face a financial penalty.

Is is really a law? Not being snarky, I thought a Governor’s order was something different, and there’s the rub.

TV pundits have explained that laws come from the legislative process. Confusing times,, I am glad I live in GA.

    Milhouse in reply to amwick. | June 21, 2020 at 1:15 am

    A governor’s order is nothing at all — unless it is authorized by state law. It’s state law, passed by the legislature, that gives any governor’s orders meaning and authority. So the report is correct. Under CA law, made by its legislature, it is required to comply with Newsom’s order.

“Due to the minor nature of the offense, the potential for negative outcomes during enforcement encounters, and anticipating the various ways in which the order may be violated, it would be inappropriate for deputies to criminally enforce the Governor’s mandate,” a statement from Sheriff Scott Jones said.

In other words, why risk killing someone who is willing to fight to the death to remain mask-free. That would be a beautiful press conference: ‘We had to kill Mr. So-and-So because he refused to wear a mask, then refused to sign a Notice to Appear, then fought with deputies when they tried to arrest him, until he died of (fill in the blank). It was for everyone’s own good, the only people who should be able to kill grandmas using covid are state governors.’

And depending on the demographics of those involved, the incident could go viral and major US cities could burn.

We’re only half-way through 2020 and the ride just keeps getting more surreal.

Not to mention the police would likely be spending most of their time responding to 911 calls all day long from people complaining about other people not wearing masks. After all, we’ve already known since mid-March people are more than willing to rat out their neighbors and even their employers if they’re not following government dictates.

The singling out of Florida in the last few days is also nuts. There are just 197 people hospitalized in the entire state of over 27 million people. That’s a rate per million of about 8. New York’s is around 70. So Cuomo’s threats to ban travelers from Florida is certainly not based on any actual rationale.

California officials attributed the increase in new cases to more testing in the state, along with delays in lab results.

Of the 2,100 new cases reported in LA County, nearly half came from “from an earlier testing period,” the California Department of Public Health’s website notes.

So, they don’t even know how many cases there are, or how fast the number is increasing (or, for that matter, decreasing). But they’re pretending to know how to decrease this unknown infection rate:

“California’s strategy to restart the economy and get people back to work will only be successful if people act safely and follow health recommendations. That means wearing a face covering, washing your hands and practicing physical distancing.”

So what is the basis for the belief that face coverings, luxurious bathing, suspension of the right of assembly, and readings of animal entrails have anything to do with changing those numbers . . . ahhh, whatever they are?

The Friendly Grizzly | June 20, 2020 at 8:28 pm

I have a need to visit California end of next week. I am not looking forward to it, and will leave as fast as I can. I am sorely tempted to wear a mask hanging from the ear loops but not covering my breathing passages. “It says mask wearing is requred; not how.”

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to The Friendly Grizzly. | June 22, 2020 at 2:21 am

    Just tell them you are health endangered by wearing a mask.

    ADA covers that and also makes it illegal for anyone to ask about your ailment.

    Or you could wear a mask like a diaper or bra…..

Oversoul Of Dusk | June 21, 2020 at 8:05 am

It’s a very sophisticated virus. From the last graph in Leslie’s article, it appears reluctant to kill people on weekends.

Or maybe the nursing homes and hospitals (where I assume most of these deaths are happening) are forgetting to check on the patients on weekends? Withholding care?

Is a serial killer on the loose, and he takes weekends off?

Or maybe the statistics are just garbage? Unless an explanation for the huge day-of-week variation in death rates is offered, the kindergarten-is-too-hard intellects churning out these numbers should be denied their juice boxes and crayons.

Anyone know anything about this lady and BOOM?

She seems spot on in her analysis and revealing of media lies about things…..

“…it would be inappropriate for deputies to criminally enforce the Governor’s mandate,”

My command of grammar isn’t good. Is it saying that it would be a crime to enforce the mandate which would infer that the mandate is illegal?
