(CNSNews.com) — In a statement released to the public on Friday, the sheriff for Racine County, Wisc., explained that state law regarding the coronavirus does not supersede the Constitutional rights of citizens, and added that he would not “participate in the destruction of Racine County businesses or interfere in the freedoms granted to all of us by our Constitution.”

Sheriff: I Won't Assist in Destruction of Businesses or People's Constitutional Rights

” I want to take this opportunity to notify Racine County citizens of our position on the enforcement of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services public health emergency orders,” said Sheriff Christopher Schmaling in the statement.

“Wisconsin law gives the Governor and the Wisconsin DHS the authority to develop emergency measures and enforce rules and orders to protect the public during a health crisis,” he said.

“However, state law does not have the power to supersede or suspend the Constitutional rights of American citizens,” added the sheriff.

” I urge the Wisconsin DHS to develop a workable plan that balances the safety of our citizens while at the same time acknowledging the fact that there is a way for business to operate even during the current health situation,” said Sheriff Schmaling.  I have all the confidence in Racine County business owners that they can make the appropriate adjustments in the way they operate during this difficult time to accommodate for the safety of their employees and guests.”

“The overreaching measures taken by State government will have dire lifetime consequences for businesses, homeowners, and families,” he said.

The sheriff continued, “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.”

  1. Now that you’ve made claim of your oath keeping, it follows that upholding the oath includes incarceration of and prosecuting domestic enemies starting with politicians, judges, bureaucratic mercenaries, et al . The sheriff is the top of the law. Put your oath to work! Deputize as many oath keeping patriots as needed to complete the job. The People are getting tired, and patience is not going to last. Imagine the chaos when The People truly awaken and take the fight to reclaim this Republic to the streets. I’d prefer the sheriffs do diligence.

  2. The sheriff continued, “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.”

    While I applaud the stance taken by Sheriff Schmaling I must point out that our freedoms are not granted by the Constitution. Rather, the Constitution declares that the government cannot remove them.
