NY Police Vow Noncompliance With Gov. Cuomo’s Turkey Day Orders

“Your house is your castle”, lamented one law enforcement official.

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches here in America, we are simultaneously experiencing a discomforting uptick in the severity of the the coronavirus pandemic.

Cases and deaths in the United States are on the rise, and local officials the nation over are beginning to impose new and enhanced lockdowns in order to help get the virus back under control.

Of course, this means that some of the more authoritarian-leaning governors out there are looking to regulate just what Thanksgiving is going to look like inside your home.

Three more upstate New York sheriffs have announced their refusal to enforce the state’s private gathering limit on Thanksgiving.

In a scathing Facebook post on Saturday, Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino questioned the legality of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s newly instituted 10-person cap on parties and other gatherings in private residences.

“Frankly, I am not sure it could sustain a Constitutional challenge in Court for several reasons including your house is your castle,” the sheriff wrote in the Saturday post.

“And as a Sheriff with a law degree I couldn’t in good faith attempt to defend it Court, so I won’t,” he said.

Other law enforcement officials released similarly scathing statements.

Washington County Sheriff Jeff Murphy said there will be no Thanksgiving enforcement, and on Monday, Saratoga County Sheriff Michael Zurlo also threw cold water on the state order.

“I can’t see how devoting our resources to counting cars in citizens’ driveways or investigating how much turkey and dressing they’ve purchased is for the public good,” Zurlo said in a press release.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has long been erring on the side of safety, and he has received plenty of criticism from the citizens of the Empire State on account of his allegedly overbearing proclamations on the subject of COVID-19.
