NY Gov. Cuomo Says Police Who Do Not Enforce Thanksgiving Party Limits are Not Police Officers


ALBANY, NY – After several upstate New York sheriffs have publicly told their residents they will not invade the sanctity of their homes on Thanksgiving to enforce Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Thanksgiving Day limits, the governor struck back today.  Cuomo today said those sheriffs are not law enforcement officers and he will not recognize them as law enforcement officers.  He also said they don’t have a choice in the matter, calling those sheriffs, oddly enough, dictators.  Cuomo likened the violations of his Thanksgiving party caps to infractions such as cocaine and drug use, even domestic violence.

“You have a strongly held opinion that says COVID is all an overreaction, a hoax, I’m not wearing a mask, I’m not following these rules,” Cuomo said on Monday. “You have sheriffs upstate who have said I’m not going to enforce the law. Now, how a law enforcement officer says I choose not to enforce that law, I believe that the law enforcement officer violates his or her constitutional duty. You don’t have the right to pick laws that you think you will enforce and don’t enforce laws that you don’t agree with.”
