Bucking an order/mandate/diktat from New Jersey’s governor, the owners of The Atilis Gym in Bellmawr (“South Jersey’s premier fitness facility!”) decided to open for business today (https://twitter.com/TheAtilisGym/status/1262403490929876993?s=20).
As a crowd gathered outside the gym to see what would happen, somebody called the police and a squad of officers arrived. And this is what its leader said:
“You’re in violation of the executive order–on that note, have a good day, everybody!”
And then they left.
The crowd cheered the officers.
And we need more of this.
The owners limited admission to the gym to 20% capacity, provided hand sanitizer, took everybody’s temperature coming in, ruled the showers off limits, and maintained social distancing guidelines. But they did re-open their business, and the cops didn’t bust them for it.
Let freedom ring.
