Rhode Island Police to Hunt Down New Yorkers Seeking Refuge
That is Bloomberg’s headline, not my characterization, but I added the bolding.
Lead paragraph: “Rhode Island police began stopping cars with New York plates Friday. On Saturday, the National Guard will help them conduct house-to-house searches to find people who traveled from New York and demand 14 days of self-quarantine.” [my emphasis].
- I am so old that I can remember when electing women to office would result in a kinder, gentler country. Good times, good times.
- The work-around is easy. If stopped in your car, or being held face down on the floor at gunpoint, tell them you are an illegal immigrant. You will be released and maybe even get a voucher for 1 free year at a RI college.
- Old CW: we are in this together. RI CW: we hate you and fear you.
I hope the RI TV stations include coverage of the house-to-house searches, including knocking on door, search perimeters, and control points.
