NY Gov Cuomo Calls Law Enforcement Not Enforcing Household Gathering Mandate ‘a dictator’

Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?

New York Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo called law enforcement refusing to enforce his mandate limiting household gatherings “a dictator.”

Two weeks ago, Cuomo issued an executive order limiting indoor and outdoor gatherings to only 10 people, a huge dilemma for families this week accustomed to gathering and celebrating the Thanksgiving holiday.

New York Police Department Commissioner Dermot Shea said the police department will be focused on other priorities and implored New Yorkers to act responsibly.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Mr. Shea also said police officers wouldn’t be breaking up Thanksgiving celebrations in private homes—even if they get complaints. An NYPD spokeswoman referred to the commissioner’s comments and declined to provide further comment.

Last week, sheriffs from counties in Upstate New York said in interviews and public statements they did not plan to enforce Governor Cuomo’s mandate.

The Hill reports:

Sheriffs in four New York counties said last week on social media that they would not be enforcing the coronavirus rules, claiming their jurisdiction does not apply inside people’s homes and that the orders were not constitutionally defensible.

Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino commented on social media.

The Daily Gazette reports:

“Who and how many people you invite into your home is your business,” Giardino wrote in the message. “We have limited resources and we have to set priorities, so obtaining a search warrant to enter your home to see how many Turkey or Tofu eaters are present is not a priority.”

Today, Cuomo debuted a mask in honor of Thanksgiving.

Cuomo calling for law enforcement to enforce his mandate of limiting household gatherings is a perfect example of government overreach.

Democrats like Cuomo always implements one size fits all policies without any consideration about important details or uniques considerations.

Individuals should be able to decide for themselves if it’s appropriate to gather with friends and family for Thanksgiving depending on the health concerns of those involved.
