    Re: “Public Health Officer Explains Shelter in Place Order

    Apologies, I actually misquoted the code section, 120275 gives the public health officer broad authority to deal with a contagious disease:

    CHAPTER 3. Functions and Duties of Local Health Officers [120175 - 120250] ( Chapter 3 added by Stats. 1995, Ch. 415, Sec. 7. )

    120175.
    Each health officer knowing or having reason to believe that any case of the diseases made reportable by regulation of the department, or any other contagious, infectious or communicable disease exists, or has recently existed, within the territory under his or her jurisdiction, shall take measures as may be necessary to prevent the spread of the disease or occurrence of additional cases.

    It's 120295 that makes failing to comply with their orders a misdemeanor.

    Re: “Public Health Officer Explains Shelter in Place Order

    Hello Kommander-
    Apologies for the delayed response ... it's been busy so I'm just now seeing your question. California Health and Safety Code 120275 makes it a misdemeanor to violate the lawful order of a public health officer in a time of a local health emergency. I've seen nothing to believe it is being applied incorrectly or abused in this instance.

    Re: “Justice for Josiah

    Walker-
    Thank you for providing specifics. I can't find the post you indicate we published Jan. 19, 2020, so can't speak to that one. The post on Jan. 25, 2019, should not have used the term "murder" in that context. I apologize and will correct the online version of the story.
    The other two examples you site have people saying it was a murder, Richard Ehle and Tom Parker. The information is attributed to them, regardless of whether quotation marks were used.
    But I do apologize for not catching the use of the word in the Jan. 25, 2019 story. That was my fault.

    Re: “Justice for Josiah

    P.S. Walker, apologies, but an intelligent reply to my inquiry requires that you actually read the articles in the link you provided. I realize that may be too much to ask.

    Re: “'Organizational Failures'

    Walker-
    You did a key-word search for "murder" and "Lawson" on our website. Someone was charged with committing murder in the case, so of course those search terms would return pages of results. (Almost all the articles also include reference to a judge's determination that there initially wasn't enough evidence to support the charge.) But please find one instance in which the Journal's reporting described Lawson's killing as a "murder." Be specific.
    Thanks,
    Thadeus

    Re: “Justice for Josiah

    Again, Walker, can you point to a single article in which Lawson’s killing is described by the reporter as a “murder?”

    We are keenly aware that murder is a legal determination ... one that’s up to a jury or court to make, not journalists. But please back up your assertion by pointing to a single instant in which we described Lawson’s death as a murder.

    Re: “Justice for Josiah

    Walker-
    Where does this editorial or any story we've published describe the incident as a "murder?"
    Thanks for clarifying,
