Governor Walz on November 18 again ordered another shutdown of restaurants, gyms, bars, youth sports, hospitality gathering, social events AND HAS RESTRICTED FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION INDOORS, OUTDOORS, AND IN YOUR HOME TO ONLY THE PEOPLE WITHIN YOUR DIRECT FAMILY RESIDENCE under penalty of an up to $1000 fine, and no more than 90 days in jail. Walz previously stated we would not do another lockdown, but here we go again. The last one worked so well.
ARE MINNESOTA’S ELECTED SHERIFFS GOING TO ENFORCE THIS?
Minnesota County Sheriffs are elected by the people and only take one oath, to serve, protect, AND OBEY THE US CONSTITUTION.
They should be asked:
DO YOU INTEND ON ENFORCING THE GOVERNOR’S ORDERS RESTRICTING THE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS FOR FREEDOM OF ASSOCIATION, OR THE RIGHT TO BE SECURE IN YOUR OWN HOME?
DO YOU INTEND ON ENFORCING ANY ASPECT OF THE ORDER AND ISSUING FINES, COMPLAINTS, SUMMONS, OR ARRESTS? WILL THEY BE OUT DOING HEAD COUNTS AND INQUIRIES OF GATHERINGS OF PEOPLE INDOORS AND OUT? WHICH PARTS WILL THEY ENFORCE, IF ANY?
WILL YOU BE ISSUING A PUBLIC STATEMENT AND WHERE WILL IT BE POSTED?
I am curious to know which Sheriffs think there is a virus clause that allows invalidation of the US Constitution. Please report to me if you receive any answers from your Sheriff in the comments, or at firstname.lastname@example.org
I have never contended the government should do nothing, but the Governor is acting alone and not in consultation with the legislature or the vast resource of medical professional companies and experts based here in the Minnesota. The COVID fatalities continue to pile up disproportionately in eldercare facilities (70+% of the victims are in eldercare) yet they only get tested monthly unless their is a COVID case found to trigger additional weekly testing. Paired with the spare testing in eldercare the state is offering hundreds of thousands of walk up tests to young ppl in the general public at little or no risk. Since the legislature or private sector is not involved we may never know the missed opportunities to target vulnerable sectors of the population, or if the destruction of the private sector economy could have been effort, lives, and money better spent in a more targeted fashion.
THE FINES AND PUNISHMENT FOR VIOLATING THE ORDERS ARE BELOW.
