Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has found his voice and is using it to say "NO MORE!"
On Monday, the sheriff announced that he refuses to enforce an order to keep beaches closed for the 4th of July weekend.
He told Fox Los Angeles reporter Bill Melugin, “We were not consulted on the beach closure, and will only assist our beach cities in closing parking lots and traffic enforcement on PCH. In regards to enforcing the beach closure, we will not be enforcing it because we are “Care First, Jail Last.”

Good on him! A sheriff with some juevos! We need people like him in every county of the United States.
Earlier Monday, Los Angeles County’s public health department announced the beach closure order, citing the surge in Chinese coronavirus cases. Additionally, public health officials said fireworks will be banned.
The announcement coincided with L.A. County confirming an additional 2,900 virus cases. California has a total of nearly 217,000 cases and around 6,000 deaths.
Officials said, "Data show increases in people testing positive for the virus and increases in hospitalizations as a result. Projections by the Department of Health Services show a marked increase in hospitalizations in the coming weeks, which could cause a surge in our healthcare system."
Barbara Ferrer, the county’s director of public health, separately said, "Closing the beaches and prohibiting fireworks displays during this important summer holiday weekend was an incredibly difficult decision to make, but it’s the responsible decision to protect public health and protect our residents from a deadly virus. The Fourth of July holiday weekend typically means large crowds and gatherings to celebrate, a recipe for increased transmission of COVID-19."
Yeah right. People can protest, riot, and burn dow the country in massive hordes but people going to the beach are the problem? Yeah right.
