Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal announced his “firm opposition” to Governor

Good man, if all the sheriffs stand untied and the people keep coming out in droves, Newsom and Co are screwed…

I think this is pretty epic, he put the finger to Newsoms order, and likely others will follow, we can hope…

April 30, 12:20 p.m. Humboldt County Sheriff William Honsal announced his “firm opposition” to Governor Gavin Newsom’s reported order to close beaches and state parks across the state.

“As Sheriff, I am the protector of constitutional rights in Humboldt County,” he said in a Thursday tweet. “And if an order is issued that I believe violates our constitutional rights, I will not enforce it.”

Honsal did not specify which constitutional right he believed was being violated by the order, but Governor Newsom clarified later Thursday beaches and state parks will be closed in Orange County only. The county’s beaches drew large crowds over the weekend.

Early studies regarding outdoors transmission do not appear to support the governor’s order.
