Sheriff in Washington State Makes Stand Against Democrat Governor’s ‘Unconstitutional’ Lockdown Order

A sheriff in Washington state is now refusing to enforce Democrat Governor Jay Inslee’s lockdown orders because he believes they are “unconstitutional” and violate citizen’s rights.

Sheriff Adam Fortney explained his decision in a lengthy Facebook book post:

As The Daily Mail reports:

Fortney said that after watching the address he was ‘left to wonder if [Inslee] even has a plan’.

‘To be quite honest I wasn’t even sure what he was trying to say half of the time. He has no plan. He has no details,’ the sheriff wrote…

He said he’d wanted to defy the stay-at-home order two weeks ago but ‘decided to wait out of respect for the Governor and my own misguided hope that each day he did a press conference he would say something with some specificity on getting Washington back to work’…

Fortney mentioned that other sheriffs in Washington will not be enforcing the stay-at-home order but did not say which ones.

Though Fortney seems to currently make his stand against the Governor’s orders alone, for now, it may not stay that way for long. Attorney General William Barr recently announced that he “would not rule out” legal action against states he felt were violating Americans’ civil liberties.

  1. It is the weirdest thing watching all those Democrat governors acting like they are KGB dictators and that the Democrat push for communism from Congress has won.

  2. It’s about time! This is not a communist country and if you’re sick stay home and if you’re really sick check with your primary care physician. And if folks just want to stay home and not breathe the air God has afforded us – stay home. Last I check the air we breathe is just fine

  3. Here is the end. Which is more important. The lives of old people who they claim are dying from corona but easily could be dying from the FLU that has been mislabeled.
    OR the death of our economy and the resulting starvation of those who can’t make a living. This has never been about saving lives. All you have to do to saver lives is isolate the very few who are vulnerable. Like me. 71 years old with diabetes and heart trouble. And no, I don’t wear a mask YET when I go out.
    This has always been about taking Trump down by destroying the economy. The numbers simply are not there. And the claims of deaths were designed to terrify the nation. And it simply has not happened.
    The ONLY place where large numbers have died is YANKEE LAND. And it is likely that many if not most of those deaths were NOT from corona.
