You’d better not look sick!
(Thanks to Phoebe for the nooze tip. She asks, “Since when did illness become a felony?” That question needs an answer.)
The coronavirus panic has moved a Michigan judge to rule that individuals can be arrested and held–without medication!–for up to 72 hours if police or “health officials” suspect him or her of being infected with the virus (https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/michigan-judge-authorizes-arresting-people-on-suspicion-of-covid-19-illness).
The “suspect”–is this crazy, or what?–may be “held for at least three days to confirm he or she is without a fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 72 consecutive hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication)…”
Probable cause? We don’t need no stinking probable cause.
So they not only arrest you and “forcibly isolate” you for three days because some pipsqueak “suspects” you of having the virus; but if you really are sick, they’re not going to give you any medicine!
What’s with Michigan? The governor has been slapped with two federal lawsuits (so far!) for her heavy-handed “orders” imposed upon the populace. And there’s a recall petition against her with a couple hundred thousand signatures already.
Are our state and local governments becoming a more serious threat to our country than any disease? Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has become the poster gal for Mussolini wannabes. When they start forbidding you to plant your garden, as Whitmer has done, you know they’ve gone overboard.
Can Americans’ liberties really be lost so swiftly? Is it really that easy for a mayor or a governor to become a dictator?
They need taking down a peg, but good.
