Wisconsin Sheriff Says He Will Not Enforce Stay-at-Home Order, Cites Constitutional Rights

•, Breitbart

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers extended his stay-at-home orders through May 26 and said, "things won't get back to normal until there's a vaccine and treatment for this disease". However, Racine County Sheriff Christopher Schmaling says he will not enforce the orders, because state law "does not have the power to supersede or suspend the Constitutional rights of American citizens." He urged the state's health department to balance safety with allowing businesses to operate. He said, "I took an oath to uphold the constitutional rights of our citizens and I cannot in good faith participate in the destruction of Racine County businesses or interfere in the freedoms granted to all of us by our Constitution." -GEG
