He needs some sense knocked into him.
Adam Fortney, the Snohomish County Sheriff, recently stated that he will not be enforcing Democrat Governor Jay Inslee’s order of staying at home.
Fortney addressed the Snohomish County residents writing, “I just watched the governor’s speech to Washingtonian’s regarding our approach to getting Washington back in business, and I am left to wonder if he 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. This simply is not good enough in times when we have taken such drastic measures as the suspension of constitutional rights.”
“This is a very serious issue and the appropriate precautions need to be taken to protect our most vulnerable populations. However, our communities have already shown and continue to show they understand the severity of the situation and are doing all they can already to keep themselves, their families, and neighbors safe and healthy.”
“If this Coronavirus is so lethal and we have shut down our roaring economy to save lives, then it should be all or nothing. The government should not be picking winners or losers when it comes to being able to make an income for your family. If the virus is so lethal it shouldn’t matter whether you are building a school for the government, building a new housing development, restaurant owner, or you happen to be an independent contractor.”
“To the contrary, if the virus is proving to not be as lethal as we thought, maybe it’s time for a balanced and reasonable approach to safely get our economy moving again and allowing small businesses to once again provide an income for their families and save their businesses.”
He concluded with: “This is not a time to blindly follow, this is a time to lead the way.”
