Gavin Newsom lands in court over plan to turn men in white coats loose on Californians

Gavin Newsom has what he seems to think is a bright idea to “help” Californians.

Now his awful scheme is landing him in court.

And it turns out lots of Californians don’t like his plan to turn men in white coats loose on them.

Ronald Reagan once said, “The top nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government, and I’m here to help.’”

A lawsuit filed contesting California Governor Gavin Newsom’s (D-CA) CARE Court program shows that both disability rights groups and civil rights organizations are up in arms over Newsom’s efforts to “help.”

Newsom signed the socialist scheme into law last year requiring every county in the state to provide free “comprehensive” treatment to homeless people in California communities.

The Community Assistance, Recovery and Empowerment (CARE) Court is supposed to help by treating homeless citizens before they are hospitalized or arrested.

Lawsuit warns “CARE Act’s eligibility criteria require the courts to speculate who might become so in the future”

But several groups are sounding the alarm and arguing that the court ordered intervention program is trampling citizens fundamental rights.

“For individuals who are not presently a danger or gravely disabled, the CARE Act’s eligibility criteria require the courts to speculate who might become so in the future, without offering any guidance about how to make such a subjective determination,” a lawsuit claims.

The lawsuit filed by Disability Rights California, the Western Center on Law & Poverty, and the Public Interest Law Project filed the lawsuit, noting that the new mental health court program violates both individual citizens’ rights to due process and equal protection promised in California’s constitution by stripping their “autonomy in choosing their medical provider and where and with whom they live.”

The organizations filing a lawsuit against the Newsom Administration’s pet project point out in their legal petition that it’s rife with unintended consequences.

What might the government label a “disability” and require “treatment” for in the future?

“Although designed to address the State’s homelessness crisis, it will not further that goal. And on its face, the CARE Act violates essential constitutional guarantees of due process and equal protection while needlessly burdening fundamental rights to privacy, autonomy and liberty,” the petition argues.

The creation of all-powerful mental health overseers is especially concerning for conservatives in an era where woke elements inside major health organizations like the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are pushing gun control as a “health issue.”

No doubt, it’s only a matter of time before disagreeing with gun-grabbing leftists will be labeled a “mental health” issue.
