I have been apprehensive about the risk from covid19 i will be honest, but today I saw something that shocked me too my core. I went to get some
shopping from town and I had pre arranged to meet my mother as she had a present for my daughter. As we were stood in the centre maintaining a
distance of 2 metres or more a police officer came up to a lady sat on the benches behind us, and in a abrupt and aggressive manner and started
singling her out and shouting why are you out, you should be at home. She had clearly been shopping as she had a couple of bags and she had got some
chips from the chippy for her daughter for lunch. Safe to say being in the centre of town there were people queuing to go in shops and every single
person looked on horrified at the vile attitude this copper had with her. It was completely unnecessary and a blatant power trip on his part. He even
tried to have a go at my mums partner who was stood having a cig. As I walked away I heard people muttering under their breath how rude he Was. If
this is the future I am not for it.
After r reading about the track and trace app aswell, I am even more against holding the country hostage

What a frightening story. It seems politicians of the world no longer believe in freedom at all. Look how quickly formerly free countries became as
strict as Nazi regimes overnight.
The worst part is how quickly the populace gave into these restrictions.
In Rhode Island the Governor told police to stop anyone without Rhode Island license plates and demand they quarantine for 14 days.
In many many states it is ILLEGAL to be within 6 feet of another human being who doesn't live in your household.
Maine shut down all hotels, inns and B&B's and forbade people from going to them, I don't know about where you live, but where I live there are cheap
hotels where people who are close to homeless stay paying by night or week - thereby throwing people on the streets.
Kentucky residents were PROHIBITED from traveling outside their state.
In the state with one of the lowest rates of infection in the nation, Oregon, super strict lockdown has been ordered to continue through July.
Michigan forbade the sale of unnecessary items to be sold, so if one went into a store to buy food, one could not purchase an unnecessary item, like:
car seats for children, gardening supplies, paint
In Wisconsin you could only go boating in a non-motorized boat, motorized boats were prohibited.
Most states forbade visiting ones relatives, unless they were elderly and in great need.
We are living in one of the most totalitarian worlds that has ever been seen on this planet, if it continues we will all be living like the people
who were occupied by the Nazi's and the politicians seem to be really enjoying the power and relishing giving out orders like these.
Even the US more closely resembles Nazi Germany than some of the occupied countries during WWII, thanks to many of the State Governors.
