Here at ANP, along with many other Independent News websites, we watched what was happening in China with COVID-19, then in Italy, and warned it was a pandemic and it could happen here in the U.S., so to prepare, supplement what is needed to round out the food supply and basic necessities.
When we saw people ignoring the danger heading right them like a train and downplaying it, even to the point of insisting it couldn't happen here, we then recommend the healthy quarantine themselves to not become exposed and to help stop the spread, along with wearing masks and gloves when out in public.
I remind readers of that because while we have noted that others were encouraging people to ignore the danger, therefore pushing them to endanger themselves , their families, neighbors, and communities, we find it isn't only some of "we the people" that have shown a disturbing lack of common sense, but local state and/or county officials, along with some police departments, are using this pandemic to act like tyrants.
Many would say some of those measures are sliding us down a scary slippery slope, and others would point out that Americans, in this particular case, have acted extremely irresponsibly in refusing to take common sense measures themselves, and giving the local governments the excuse to step in, crack down and usher in their tyrannical measures.

OFFICIALS SHOWING DISTURBING LACK OF COMMON SENSE
We fully believe that staying away from the masses, is the right way to help stop the spread of this deadly coronavirus, shown clearly in our early warnings about creating a healthy self-quarantine, but to us, that meant stay the heck away from places that have heavy traffic, if at all possible. We encouraged staying away from even the grocery stores if they were prepared enough with emergency survival food to survive without a store.
You don't want to be breathing someone elses air.
You don't want people coughing or sneezing on you.
You don't want to be touching items that others have been handling.
One can do all of the above, or even take proper precautions if they have to do grocery shopping because they didn't have enough stored, without locking yourself up inside your home.
Yet, we see local officials taking these stay-at-home orders to the point of absurdity, as people are being arrested for leaving their homes, when they are alone, endangering no one because they are away from everyone.
Previously we touched on how local officials in Florida and Louisiana decided to arrest preachers for refusing to cancel church, while promoting the idea of releasing criminals from prison because of COVID-19.
To me, that is one aspect of absurdity being spouted by public officials.
Well, we have found more that should be listed under the "what the hell?" category.
Guy board surfing in Malibu, alone. No one around him, in contact with no one else. Endangering nobody, including himself because... I repeat for emphasis there was no one around him and he was in contact with no one else.
At least not until they arrested him, with two members of law enforcement putting him in danger because of close contact with them, and putting themselves in danger because of contact with him.
They arrested him for not obeying them initially when they ordered him to get out of the water for violating the stay-at-home order.
Then again we are talking California, where tyranny is their end goal.
Moving along to Pennsylvania, where a 19 year old girl decided to get out of the house, so she went for a drive.....alone. On her way back home, she was stopped by police, who claimed they stopped her for a broken taillight, which later was found to be working, but they didn't ticket her for that, no, they wrote her up for a $200+ ticket/fine stating she "failed to abide by the order of the governor and secretary of health issued to control the spread of a communicable disease, requiring the closure of all non-life-sustaining businesses as of 20:00 hours on March 19, 2020. To wit, defendant states that she was ‘going for a drive’ after this violation was in effect."
A 19-year-old York County woman went out for a drive just to get out of the house for awhile on Sunday evening and was circling her way back home when she was stopped by two state police cars.
They cited her for violating Gov. Tom Wolf’s stay-at-home order that took effect in York County two days before.
Again, someone alone, endangering no one, because I repeat, she was alone!!!!!!! Then the cops make her get out of her car,touch a ticket they wrote, while interacting with them, which is what the stay-at-home orders are trying to prevent.
They endangered her while she did nothing but take a drive...ALONE!!
Come on people... where is the common sense?
In Kentucky, a hat tip to Infowars for this, one county is asking neighbors to report other neighbors if they defy the stay-at-home orders.

Many people around the world grew up hearing horror stories of German citizens telling the SS where Jews were being hidden and it appears America is heading towards a similar dystopian society.
First.... what the heck????????????????? Second... How do they know why people are out? Since essential needs are acceptable under the stay-at-home orders, they could be going shopping, or to the doctor or refilling their meds. Third.... Is it ever a good idea to try to turn neighbor against neighbor?
BOTTOM LINE - THEY ARE PUSHING FOR CIVIL WAR HERE
Look, we at ANP believe people should have the common sense and decency to not endanger other people, take precautions, isolate themselves from strangers if at all possible.
On the flip side, there is a line that should not be crossed, and treating American citizens that are not violating the intent of the orders, which is to limit exposure to stop the spread of the virus, like they are criminals, is most definitely on the wrong side of that line.
These types actions on the part of local officials will do nothing but force people to fight back and that could get very, very ugly.
It is almost like these people want a civil war and are willing to use this pandemic to create the conditions and atmosphere to usher it in.
