aaaand, I shouldn't have come back inside to check out the news.... Shit's Getting Real..












“Right now we have a pinpointed risk,” Governor Gina Raimondo said. “That risk is called New York City.”


From HERE<<<



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.
“Right now we have a pinpointed risk,” Governor Gina Raimondo said. “That risk is called New York City.”
New York is the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the U.S., on Friday reporting a total of 44,000 cases.
Rhode Island has just over 200, and it has begun an aggressive campaign to keep the virus out and New Yorkers contained, over objections from civil liberties advocates.
Raimondo, a Democrat, said she had consulted lawyers and said while she couldn’t close the border, she felt confident she could enforce a quarantine.

Seaside Retreat

Many New Yorkers have summer houses in Rhode Island, especially in tony Newport, and the governor said the authorities would be checking there.
“Yesterday I announced and today I reiterated: Anyone coming to Rhode Island in any way from New York must be quarantined,” the governor said. “By order. Will be enforced. Enforceable by law.”
Raimondo signed an executive order Thursday that applies to anyone who has been in New York during the past two weeks and through at least April 25. It doesn’t apply to public health, public safety, or health-care workers.

National Guard members will be stationed at the T.F. Green airport, Amtrak train stations and at bus stops. The citizen-soldiers will be following up with people at local residences. The maximum penalty for not complying: a fine of $500 and 90 days in prison.
The local chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union blasted the new rules, objecting to the collection of motorists’ contact information in particular.

“While the Governor may have the power to suspend some state laws and regulations to address this medical emergency, she cannot suspend the Constitution,” Rhode Island ACLU executive director Steven Brown said in a statement. “Under the Fourth Amendment, having a New York state license plate simply does not, and cannot, constitute ‘probable cause’ to allow police to stop a car and interrogate the driver, no matter how laudable the goal of the stop may be.”

Police Stops

Just before 1 p.m. Friday, state police were set up on Interstate 95 northbound, at the rest stop closest to the Connecticut border. A mile or two before that, motorists could see signs ordering all New York passenger vehicles to pull over at the rest stop.
One trooper could be seen there, checking license plates as cars went by. At the stop itself, a number of officers were assembled around a tent, ready to question vehicle occupants.

Along the same issue, although they aren't going door to door...yet.

  6. Here in my small mountain town in North Georgia there's WAY more NY, NJ, Delaware and PA plates than I've ever seen before. One of my neighbors has two cars with NY plates on them, not there a few days ago. This is pissing me off. You jack offs wanna live like roaches or bugs in a hive, that's your choice. But don't let your piss poor choices become a risk to my family. I am contemplating calling out the neighbors on this bad decision. Be interesting to see how this plays out.

  9. That virus might not care about my civil rights, but you can damn sure bet that our founding fathers had just such a thing in mind when drafting the constitution. They can certainly quarantine you if you are sick, and a definite threat. But they have no right to quarantine healthy citizens, unless they declare martial law, which then would give them powers that they would not otherwise have. They have a right to ask that all citizens self quarantine,and even go as far as to shut down businesses, which they have forced, through their big brother tactics, to have a license in order to operate.
    What is most disturbing is not that the government is going so far as to use people's cell phones and license plates to turn them back, with punishments threatened, but the fact that so many people don't think it is a problem, and in fact, support this further infringement of their rights.
    What will they do next, tell you that since you are supposed to be on a 14 day quarantine, that you cannot set foot in a store, or even outside of your own home, for any reason at all? That you can't carry your firearm when you go into a store to get supplies, since others won't be able to obtain a permit during this time of limited rights? And just what does it take for people to say stop, since they have no problem with the government forcing them to give up most of their bill of rights freedoms that are intrinsic?

  10. The only pinpointed risk is tyrannical Democrats letting their inner Mao have some fun.

    You know somebody's going to get killed sooner rather than later.

  11. So RI is racist against NY? The virus that keeps on giving.

  12. An interesting point is that while you DO have the right to travel, you don't necessarily have the right to do so in your CAR or other motor vehicle.

    SO this may be able to stand up in court.

  14. Kansas is using cell phones to track movements to 'enforce quarantine'. The events in the hivelike city has little correlation to Nowhere,Kansas or Dogshit, Nebraska
