OK, on Dec 22nd I blogged about some goofy judge ordering the Sheriff to half his jail population. The judge is petey wilson, 657-622-5302, he asked me to have EVERYONE give him a call and voice your opinion…please do so. This in response to a lawsuit filled by the aclu.

The Sheriff, Don Barnes along with the support of the Prosecuting Attorney and a number of the cities in Orange County are pushing back.

Orange County CA, Sheriff pushing back against order to reduce jail population

Due to the extreme risk to citizens if violent felons are released the Sheriff filed an Amicus brief. Yeah, I didn’t have any idea what it is either…so I looked it up. It’s a request to have an impartial party look at the issue and offer an opinion.

In this case the Sheriff feels that releasing a bunch of violent offenders outweighs the Covid risk to the inmates. The first and only duty of the Sheriff and Prosecutor is to keep the citizens safe. If these goofs had followed the law they wouldn’t be locked up…So There!!
