Riverside Sheriff Statement

The public speech by the Sheriff in full uniform under the color of authority is appalling. He denies the need for a lockdown and mocks the effort.

What in the world are we supposed to do? Just go out, get infected, and die for a good time?? Why does HE think that he should come forth and tell people this?

He should be made to visit a hospital and see what the staff and patients are going through.

Wear your masks, social distance yourself, wash your hands, and be as patient as you can be. Stay home! The virus isn't the new state of the world; we will learn its secrets and we will beat it.

And, I know that people are worried to death about how they will get along. Well, Biden/Harris will be along shortly. Fight! Support your local food banks. And, don't listen to some jerk with a star on his chest that tells you it isn't necessary to do these things. He's an idiot!

He needs to be ordered to do 100 hours of community service at the local covid ward. These nasty western thugs are true pieces of shit.

Thank you, Sheriff, for pissing all over their efforts to save people's lives. Twenty four hour shifts, watching people die surrounded by strangers and machines, and the recurring gut punch when someone who appears to be getting better suddenly dies.
