The San Diego County Sheriff’s Dept. is leading a massive crackdown on citizens who are violating the state’s social distancing order.
Citations were handed out to a number of people who were parked in their cars near the beach — an apparent no-no these days in Communist California.
“Now we’ve gotten to the point that we’ve had to escalate and now we’re doing enforcement,” a department spokesperson said. “A large group of our deputies and detectives did go out and conduct enforcement for those who are violating the order.”
“These were not recommendations that came down,” the spokesperson said. “These were actual orders.”
Everyone is required to stay home except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job. 22 people were cited near the beach in @EncinitasGov.

Ironcially, the deputies were wearing brown shirts.
“We will enforce and we are going to continue to do enforcement,” the sheriff’s department spokesperson said. “We’re dealing with a crisis at this point and we want compliance from everybody.”
Sheriff Bill Gore posted a notice on Twitter warning that anyone who violates the order may be punished by up to six months in jail or a $1,000 fine or both.
