NORRIS: Enforce all laws

| January 14, 2021 1:00 AM

Sheriff Norris has announced that he will not enforce the use of masks as mandated by the Panhandle Health District. The Sheriff does not (or should not) have the discretion or authority to decide what laws and regulations will be enforced and which will be ignored.

We entrust our law enforcement agencies with the duty and responsibility to enforce all laws and legal mandates equally without prejudice. I was always taught that if you don’t like the law, change the law; but you can’t ignore the law because you don’t agree with it.
