Whenever I see Newsom’s image on TV, I know that some form of idiocy is about to be reported. I know this because, well, Governor Newsom is the walking definition of a knuckle-dragging Marxist. And, again, just this morning, Governor Goober has come through once again
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, on Tuesday signed a bill that no longer requires any “able-bodied person 18 years of age or older” in the state to help an officer who requests assistance during an arrest.
The Sacramento Bee reported that the old law, the California Posse Comitatus Act of 1872, was common in the country’s early days, but Sen. Bob Hertzberg, a Los Angeles Democrat who sponsored the bill, called the old law a “vestige of a bygone era.” The law was employed to help catch runaway slaves, the report said.
The old law made it a misdemeanor that carried a fine of up to $1,000 for refusing to help a police officer who requested assistance during an arrest.
The report said Newsom did not issue a statement after signing the bill.
The Left REALLY has it in for law enforcement it seems. What good will come from this bill? Maybe more bad people will evade arrest, and commit more felonies? Maybe they will commit violent felonies which Gov. Newsom can blame on guns. He certainly loves doing that. Maybe Marxifornia can then pass more gun control measures even though the many gun control acts they have passed have done nothing to stop mass shootings, armed robberies, etc.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) has signed off on legislation banning schools in the state from suspending students for disruptive behavior.
Senate Bill 419, signed into law by Newsom on Monday, will amend the California Education Code to prohibit public and charter schools in the state from suspending students in grades 4-8 for “disrupting school activities or otherwise willfully defying the valid authority of those school personnel engaged in the performance of their duties.”
Existing law already prohibited schools from suspending or recommending expulsion for students enrolled in kindergarten or in grades 1-3 for such actions.
The legislation is slated to take effect at the start of July 2020 and will prohibit the suspension of students in grades 6-8 , specifically, for such acts until July 1, 2025.
Without discipline, and respect for teacher authority, a school cannot teach the students that DO behave. But, social justice warriors like Newsom care not because DISPROPORTIONATE
“Because it is so subjective, suspensions based on Section 48900(k) raise serious concerns about their disproportionate impact on students of color and other vulnerable student groups- including students with disabilities and/or those who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and/or gender non-conforming,” the organization said.
The group added that research “confirms that there is even greater disproportionality for students in these groups suspended for low level, subjective offenses, like defiance/disruption, compared to higher level, more objective offenses.”
In short, this bill does not ban punishment for the good students, who are punished by having to tolerate the crap the unruly students engage in does it? No, of course not, good kids just have to put up with it. Guess their “privilege” must be held against them
