In this special martial law episode of the Madness Chronicles, we’ll take a look at the madness of government gone wild. Remember, madness is a state of being mentally ill, especially severely, extremely foolish behavior, and a state of frenzied or chaotic activity. Let’s take a look at government overreach around America.
First, out of Pennsylvania, a 19-year-old young woman was arrested for ‘driving around.’ That’s right; the State Police arrested the York County woman for violating the Governors’ stay at home order. She was fined $200.00. It seems walking, running, or hiking is permitted, but only if it is essential. Apparently, the State Police deemed driving around non-essential?
A father and former State Patrol officer in Brighton, Colorado, was recently arrested while playing softball with his 6-year-old daughter in a city park. The man was cuffed and placed in the back of the police cruiser. While his wife and the little girl looked on. His crime? Violating the social distancing order issued by the Governor. Suddenly Governors are powerful.
Moving back east to New Jersey, police arrested two people who allowed other people in their home for a private wedding. The crime? Violating the Governor’s social distancing order. What makes this one ‘special’ is they were turned in by their neighbors. So very Nazi of them. Chaos reigns all over the country.
In Cincinnati, we have a unique case. A man who had walked some three or so miles from his home was shot by someone. When police arrived, they arrested him because walking from his home was not essential, and he violated the Governors stay at home order. Really? A woman in Georgia was arrested because she tested positive to coronabalogna and wouldn’t quarantine. Said she wasn’t sick, but that didn’t matter.
In an apparent preemptive strike, Nevadas’ Democratic Governor recently announced he will order large Easter gatherings in homes to be broken up. Back in Jersey, 15 people were arrested for attending their Rabbi’s funeral. It sure is a good thing we live in a free country protected by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Not.
In Fond du loc County, Wisconsin, the District Attorney’s office has filed 10 charges for violating the Governor’s stay at home order. In Milwaukee, Police are advising people they will arrest violators and are encouraging people to report violators. Big Brother is coming. In San Diego County, California police issued 52 citations for violating the Governors’ stay at home order. In their grand county, violators face a fine of up to $1,000.00 and a possible 6 months in jail. Lovely.
There were 3 people arrested in Toledo, Ohio, in Minnesota’s twin cities 8 people have been arrested, as well as arrests in Indiana, Maryland, Alabama. In many cases, the charges are tacked on to other violations. Law enforcement is acting like kids in a candy store.
Finally, out of Florida, a 28-year-old man left home to go to McDonald’s, Once there, he assaulted his ex-girlfriend. He was charged with assault as well as violating the Governors’ stay at home order. Give a man a new law and some authority, and by golly, he will enforce it. Yet, Governor’s coast to coast say they are reserving the right to enact martial law. You could have fooled me.
May we wake from this madness before it’s too late. I wish you good health and until next time… have fun, enjoy life, and watch out for the madness amongst us.
