A California sheriff has had enough of Governor Gavin Newsom’s implacable lockdown orders, saying she’s too busy re-arresting released criminals to enforce his uncompromising vision.
Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims indirectly criticized the governor and state legislature’s priorities by stating that her deputies are overwhelmed, re-arresting repeat offenders who are out on the street thanks to a “zero-dollar bail” policy implemented last year.

“I’ve heard multiple sheriffs around the nation state they will not enforce their governors’ shelter-in-place orders. Is that your position?” asked Trevor Carey, host of the Trevor Carey Show.
“That is my position,” the sheriff answered in the affirmative. “We do not stop the public to find out what they’re doing when they’re not sheltering in place. We don’t ask those questions, we don’t ask if they’re ‘essential’.”
In August of 2018, California set in motion their “zero-dollar bail” policy.
“California will become the first state in the nation to abolish bail for suspects awaiting trial under a sweeping reform bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown,” NPR reported at the time. “An overhaul of the state’s bail system has been in the works for years, and became an inevitability earlier this year when a California appellate court declared the state’s cash bail system unconstitutional. The new law goes into effect in October 2019.”
