So now I see why a co-worker said to me today that he didn’t think Nash County was not going to enforce the Mask thing. I said that is crazy. He said it is political. I said really. He said folk making it political. I said it is about being safe. He said it is political because they want to make us wear chips. I said what does that have to do with a mask?
Wow I just seen a news flash WRAL was going to come back and talk to Keith Stone about he was not going to enforce wearing a mask. So now I see what the co-worker was talking about.
When Stone came back they even talked about he had posted a statement on his Facebook Page. Now let me go over there as I type to see it.
Damn the plot thickens as I read what the following post. Obviously my co-worker had seen this however he probably had not but I probably know who told him.

We are getting questions about the enforcement of the mask mandate from the Governor. We will not be issuing citations to individuals for not wearing a mask. As you can see in the picture, as part of the Executive Order, law enforcement will not be enforcing the order on individuals, but only has the authority to enforce it on businesses.
Sheriff Stone has made it clear that unless there are some extenuating circumstances, we will not enforcing the mask order at all. He believes that each individual should make that choice depending on what their situations are. If you choose to wear a mask, then do so. If you choose not, then don’t.
“We’re not out patrolling looking for people with masks on,” Stone said. “What we’re doing is the same thing we did before this epidemic, is fight gangs, guns and drugs.”
Damn I just don’t get it, who expect the Sheriff Office to just patrol folk who don’t wear masks. I expect the Sheriff Office to to do their job be it all the above and more and to respect authority being our Governor/Legislators.
The Political Agitator’s response: Now I find this to be disrespectful to authority being the Office of the Governor Roy Cooper Stone saying that he will not be enforcing the mask order at all. I have an issue with it because I work in Nash County and stop by gas stations, eateries and etc. But what I will not do is shop where places are not following the order. Stone it ain’t about what you believe because you only have control over what you believe your employees should do to comply with your expectations. Our my and your Democratic Governor is the one with the authority to make the call and anyone who disrespects his office should be handled accordingly per the Governor’s Office.
But actually most businesses and restaurants are in the city limits so therefore it should be the local police departments that should receive calls. Funny have not heard any local police departments speak to the issue on will they enforce the order.

Robin Williams Braswell Some of the comments on this thread ♀️ The Executive Order is directed towards the businesses not the individual. The business is expected to enforce it with their employees and patrons. If someone doesn’t comply and is asked to leave then law enforcement can be called for trespassing, not for not wearing a mask. Law Enforcement has enough on their hands without people thinking they can call 911 because someone isn’t wearing a mask. Their oath of office is to support and maintain the constitution and laws of the United States and of North Carolina. Once again, my statements have nothing to do with how I feel about wearing a mask.
The Political Agitator’s response: But Robin one should not call Law Enforcement unless it is to report businesses that do not comply and that is the whole point. So are you saying that the only laws that are suppose to be enforced are the ones in the constitution because I think it would be ludicrous to think that all laws are in the constitution. However you statement should have something to do with how you feel about wearing a mask because that is your constitutional right freedom of speech and also you are in Nash County from time to time and you ought to be concerned about folk wearing mask. So are you only concerned about the Governor not wearing a mask when he come on TV to do a Press Conference? But I have not seen you respond to the posts I have responded to when Tarboro Police Department continue to be in photo ops especially with little Black Boys and there were/are no social distancing nor anyone wear a mask. But you liked those photo-ops my friend. Also Van Holland is always posting mess about the Governor not wearing a mask and just disrespecting him just sad.
Damn to have to wake up and go to work in Nash County everyday to know that the Top Law Enforcement in the County is promoting disrespecting our Governor makes me think about things and folk a whole lot different.
