Quote:
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, on Tuesday signed a bill that no longer requires any "able-bodied person 18 years of age or older" in the state to help an officer who requests assistance during an arrest.

The Sacramento Bee reported that the old law, the California Posse Comitatus Act of 1872, was common in the country’s early days, but Sen. Bob Hertzberg, a Los Angeles Democrat who sponsored the bill, called the old law a “vestige of a bygone era." The law was employed to help catch runaway slaves, the report said.


The old law made it a misdemeanor that carried a fine of up to $1,000 for refusing to help a police officer who requested assistance during an arrest.

Just thought of this:
The article references a 'report' form the Sacramento Bee citing the 'California Posse Comitatus Act of 1872'

"Sen. Bob Hertzberg, a Los Angeles Democrat who sponsored the bill, called the old law a “vestige of a bygone era." The law was employed to help catch runaway slaves, the report said.

First, California was never a 'slave' state
Second, the Emancipation Proclamation was released on 1 Jan, 1863

So why would a state that never had slavery create and vote into legislation a law to catch runaway slaves 9 years AFTER slavery was abolished!?!

Seems to me that both the Senator and the newspaper need to recheck their sources!

Regardless of whether or not the time frame is correct, California did have slavery.

As part of the Compromise of 1850, California was admitted as a free state (1850), without a slave state pair. To avoid creating a free state majority in the Senate, California agreed to send one pro-slavery and one anti-slavery senator to Congress.
