The coronavirus pandemic has put the world on hold and the British public under house arrest. Stasi State – Police Overreaching During Coronavirus Pandemic.
The coronavirus has caused widespread worldwide panic, governments all over the world have handled it in different ways, some better than others. The panic that followed was in part due to the Chinese Communist Party and the World Health Organisation’s dereliction of duty. First, we were told by the World Health Organisation there was “no clear evidence of human to human transmission of the coronavirus”, a line they dutifully parroted from the ever so reliable Chinese Communist authorities.
Those “authorities” arrested coronavirus whistleblower Dr Wenliang for the “crime” of telling the world about a new pandemic. Dr Wenliang was made to sign a document promising not to spread any more “false information”. Unfortunately, Dr Wenliang later died of complications that arose from contracting coronavirus. Chinese authorities put politics before lives.
The Chinese Communist State is responsible for not only failing to contain the virus but also for spreading it. During the coronavirus outbreak, more than five million people had flown out of Hubei province and the city of Wuhan potentially taking the disease with them. Inevitably the virus spread all over the world, perhaps in part due to Chinese overseas workers. Europe was hit hard, Italy was hit the hardest at first. European nations finally woke up to the severity of this growing pandemic, suspicions of a Chinese cover-up grew, and western countries were forced to take drastic measures (perhaps with the exception of Sweden).
It was as if we went from no panic to a global shutdown and recession in lightening speed – courtesy of China and its puppet, the WHO. On March 9th Italy issued a nationwide lockdown, 60 million people were told to stay at home during the coronavirus lockdown. Italians leaving their homes have to produce a certificate stating their reasons for leaving their home which Police then check. People violating the lockdown face fines between €400 to €3,000 ) or up to three months in jail.
All of this happened fifty-five days after Chinese authorities and the WHO said they “found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus”.
Spain declared a state of emergency on March 14th confining more than forty-six million people. Hundreds of thousands of Spanish military and Police personnel are enforcing the lockdown.
All of this happened sixty days after Chinese authorities and the WHO said they “found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus”.
France announced a strict nationwide lockdown on March 17th. The people of France have to fill out a form stating their reason for leaving the house. French citizens who fail to comply can be fined between €135 to €3,700 as well as up to six months in prison if caught violating the lockdown more than once.
All of this happened sixty-three days after Chinese authorities and the WHO said they “found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus”.
The UK government ordered a lockdown on March 23rd; people are only allowed trips outside the home for grocery shopping, medical needs, and travelling to work if working from home is not an option. The British public can exercise but only in pairs or as a family. The UK hasn’t gone as far as other European nations because there is no requirement for people to bring papers with them when they go outside to justify their reason for leaving the house – not yet anyway!
British Police, however, do have emergency powers to issue instant thirty-pound fines to people who gather in groups of more than two or if they leave their homes without good reason such as for work, food-shopping or exercise.
All of this happened sixty-nine days after Chinese authorities and the WHO said they “found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus”.
Piteous Pandemic Policing
During these unprecedented times, UK Police have taken “unprecedented measures” to enforce the government lockdown. Unfortunately, the enforcement of this lockdown has been applied with some glaring inconsistencies resulting in overreactions. We have seen Police struggling with groups of people who failed to adhere to government advice. Large groups of people have gathered, ignoring the advice of medical professionals, putting their communities at a higher risk, especially the elderly and those who suffer from immunodeficiencies.
It is a hard task for the Police to enforce these “unprecedented measures” during these “unprecedented times”, but we do see plenty of inconsistencies in the way people are treated. For example, the man in the video above was removing a tree from his mothers garden, we don’t know the full background to this incident, but on its face, it does look to be an “unprecedented over-reaction” by Manchester Police.
South Yorkshire Police admitted “they got it wrong” when a video of a police officer went viral. She was filmed telling a father of two that he cant use his own front garden during the coronavirus lockdown?
Police all over the UK have been accused of overreacting to the coronavirus lockdown. Alleged incidents of overreactions forced Downing Street to warn Police against “heavy-handed” lockdown tactics. Police in Cambridgeshire visited a local superstore in the hope they could catch people buying “non-essential items”.
Should Police be “policing” our shopping habits?
Britain is better than China. We don’t want to become a Police State like China because a Police State is ultimately a Failed State – an authoritarian abomination. A Failed State is a danger not only to our civil liberties but also the health, wellbeing, security and prosperity for all of humanity.
