Fourth District Supervisor Chris Norby has always been a bit eccentric. Whether it is his knack for delivering unsolicited history lessons or his rambling rants, usually I simply pass offÂ his eccentricity with the thought, “that’s Norby.” Known forÂ taking mid-afternoon naps behind the Old CourthouseÂ bushes,Â Thursday Norby crossed the line over into lulu-land.
Tony Saavedra over at Total Buzz reports:
In a mass email to constituents Thursday, Orange County Supervisor Chris Norby accused Sheriff Sandra Hutchens of mounting a â€œmisguided jihadâ€ against people requesting permits from her agency to carry guns.
Norbyâ€™s email blast urgedÂ law-abiding citizens to attend the next board hearing on Hutchensâ€™ plan to scale back the number of concealed weapons permits. ButÂ it wasÂ the use of the term â€œjihadâ€ to describe the sheriffâ€™s proposal that upped the vitriol in his message.Â
Hutchens responded: â€œIâ€™m really disappointed in the tenor this is now taking. Iâ€™m not trying to fiddle around with the Second Amendment.â€
As for being compared with a â€œjihadist,â€ she said, â€œI think itâ€™s kind of out there.â€
Illegal?!!!! They’re security cameras. TheyÂ are not illegal, clandestine, and have not been used to illegally snoop. Snooping is defined as:Â watch, observe, or inquire secretly [syn: spy].
The cameras zoomed in briefly on Supervisors Nguyen and Norby. It cannot be snooping if the action occurred only once, it was not routine, and nothing confidential or private was observed.
Please! For the love of God, can someone pleaseÂ get some lithium for this guy?
