Welcome to the United Police States of America
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio sent his NYPD stormtroopers, who are just “following orders”, to disperse a lockdown protest of just a handful (maybe a dozen+ people) of New Yorkers, who have had enough of his tyrannical rule. As you would expect several attendees who weren’t doing anything wrong, even wearing masks and it appears social distancing, refused to follow instructions to disperse their “non-essential gathering” from the officers and were arrested. Someone off camera points out one woman was getting arrested for the second time. The de Blasio loyalists also arrested a reporter and what appears to be her cameraman too, for simply covering this small event!
Where is legacy media to condemn the multiple violations of the First Amendment, including the civil rights of one of their own? Or are they silent because they are complicit with Gov Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio and the Medical State over-the-top takeover of this country because of a bug that is no more lethal than the seasonal flu?
Scenes like this continue to repeat across the country, mainly in cities and states under democrat rule from radical Leftists drunk with power acting in the name of “public health safety”. Executive Orders are NOT laws, and anyone violating American’s Constitutional civil rights are going to get sued not only for the 1A violation but also for violating 18 US Code § 242. Deprivation of rights under color of law
“Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. Persons acting under color of law within the meaning of this statute include police officers, prisons guards and other law enforcement officials, as well as judges, care providers in public health facilities, and others who are acting as public officials. It is not necessary that the crime be motivated by animus toward the race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin of the victim.
The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term, or the death penalty, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, and the resulting injury, if any.”
These are the same cops who are waiting for the order(s) to come from the tyrants, like de Blasio and Cuomo, they’re loyal to and already obeying, to gladly go door to door disarming Americans. They are bad cops. Yes, I said it. It’s true they vote for progressives (mainly dems), they hate HATE Trump and agree with all antigun nonsense – their actions like this repeated across the US is proof. The guy filming is right, these cops care more about their pensions than the rule of law.
If these unnecessary lockdowns are not ended soon these encounters between police and PEACEFUL protesters is going to get ugly. Americans are tired of it, they need to get back to work, school and their lives.
