    Sheriffs in counties that represent 40 percent of California's population have said they will refuse to enforce Governor Gavin Newsom's latest lockdown orders, as frustration over the restrictions mounts. The backlash follows Newsom's new order telling residents of Southern California and the San Joaquin Valley to remain inside their homes as the state grapples with a coronavirus surge. But Newsom sparked confusion when he backtracked on his stance around beaches, telling residents they should visit for their mental health seven months after he shuttered Orange County shores. Now, the sheriffs of Los Angeles, Orange and Riverside counties in Southern California are saying that they will not enforce the governor's restrictions. 'Compliance with health orders is a matter of personal responsibility and not a matter of law enforcement,' Orange County Sheriff Don Barnes said in a blunt statement. Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva has said that enforcing the business closures is...

In the lawsuit, Vanessa claims, 'No fewer than 8 sheriff's deputies at the crash site pulled out their personal cell phones and snapped photos of the dead children, parents and coaches.

    Monday night, I found a disturbing but no less heroic image of the two Los Angeles police officers attending to each other after nearly being assassinated. It’s jarring, but also strange. Strange that these images aren’t everywhere, when videos of police incidents that lead to riots go instantly viral. Also, on Sunday I saw this Twitter moment, from that media platform. It reads: "Protesters took to the streets in Lancaster, Pa., after a man was fatally shot by police." What's missing is context — what the left loves when it excuses their behavior. WOUNDED HERO LA COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPUTY ID'D, WAS LIBRARIAN BEFORE JOINING FORCE; REWARD INCREASED TO $200G Anyway, it turns out the man shot was a violent suspect rushing at the cop with a knife.

    The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has been plagued by a gang of deputies who sport tattoos with Nazi imagery and have infiltrated a station to enact civil rights abuses against the public, according to a claim made by a whistleblower.
