“Sheriff Mack Explains How He Would Handle Mask Orders If He Was A Police Officer Called To A Grocery Store”
Sheriff Mack Audio Transcript
It was a horrible situation where about five, six, maybe seven deputies of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Office arrested a lady who refused to put a mask on.
And I don’t know all the particulars, because the deputy that sent me the press release about this. The press release said that they were inside were asked to wear a mask, they wouldn’t. And so the store manager arrested her for trespassing, and even warned her that she’d be arrested for trespassing.
So regardless of which way I feel on all of this, none of this should have happened.
The deputy should not have been wasting their time on this.
And I’m really disappointed in Sheriff Bianco for allowing this arrest. And they’ve tried to excuse it, saying that she was not arrested for not wearing a mask.
Well, yeah, there’s no such law. So they arrested her for trespassing. And so I compared it to Rosa Parks all the way.
You know, this is just ridiculously similar to Rosa Parks, Rosa Parks, stood against stupid law.
These ladies at Family Dollar stood against stupid law. Edmund Burke said, “the essence of tyranny is the enforcement of stupid laws.” And I totally agree with that. And and I’m just ashamed of any police officer that could be enforcing these stupid pandemic mandates and executive orders.
They’re not law, and even if they were my good friends, I think most of you know me well enough. Even if the legislature passed them and under the color of law, they don’t have law, they’re not law, even then they are what the founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence says. And I challenge any of you to look this up.
Pretend legislation. That anything that violates the principles of liberty, and isn’t properly promulgated, and following the rightful authority of a legislative body to make a law, then that law is no law at all and is of no force.
You could also refer to Marbury vs. Madison with that and also refer to Miranda vs. Arizona.
But we’re trying to get ahold of Sheriff Bianco and see if he’ll meet with us.
And I will tell all of you that my Win Win policy if I was the sheriff for that time, I would have had the deputies simply ask the store manager.
“Can all of you just do social distancing?” And “Ma’am, how long do you need to be in there to buy whatever you were going to buy when you came here in the first place?”
She says, “Two minutes, I just need whatever, okay?”
“Okay, store manager, we’re going to give her three minutes to go in there with a friend. They don’t have to wear masks for those three minutes, keep everybody else away from them. Do social distancing. They promise to stay away. We’re not going to force them or arrest them for not wearing a mask. And we’re going to let them get the stuff they need and be on their way and be about their business.”
That’s what I would have liked to have done, if I had been the sheriff that day.
