Michigan sheriff says Gov. Whitmer's stay-at-home order is akin to mass arrest - 2020-05-19
GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- A Michigan sheriff opposed to Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home order told a crowd of about 350 that the governor's quarantine measures are akin to mass arrest of the state's residents.
"What's the definition of an arrest? It's basically taking away your free will, your right to move about," Barry County Sheriff Dar Leaf told the crowd in downtown Grand Rapids.
"And an unlawful arrest is when you do it unlawfully, so when you are ordered to your home, are you under arrest? Yeah, by definition you are."
