We are Not Free and Corona Tyranny Shows It! By Charles Taylor
This story comes from South Africa, but it shows the extend of oppression that the corona freak-out has generated, as the State goes into anarcho- tyranny over-drive:
“A diabetic man from Somerset West has been fined by police for attempting to visit his local pharmacy, where his physical prescription is held, to get essential medication. Allan Kirby, 71, a retired medical technologist, is a diabetic and is on a permanent medical regime for his illness. On Friday, he set off from his home in Somerset West towards Somerset Mall. He was stopped at a roadblock on Victoria Road, a main arterial route to the shopping complex. "I was asked where I was going, and I said to the pharmacy, to fetch my medicine," he told News24. "A woman officer then asked me: 'Where's your prescription?' I told her I have an ongoing prescription, which is recorded on the pharmacy's records," he explained. "But she said: 'If you don't have a prescription, you can't go'. I said: 'But I'm also going to Checkers, to buy food, which I'm allowed to do. Here is my shopping list. While I'm there, I'm also going to fetch my medicine at the in-store pharmacy'. "But she said: 'No, you said you were going to the pharmacy. And you don't have a prescription, so I'm going to fine you'," Kirby explained. He was pulled off the road. There, he tried to plead his case to a senior SAPS officer. But this fell on deaf ears, and he was fined R2 500 for "Failure to Confine to Residence".
Then there is the same pattern reproduced here:
“A woman holding a "We Are Free" sign while sitting on the sand Sunday in Miami Beach was dragged away by police who arrested and charged her with violating an emergency order, trespassing, and resisting an officer without violence, WTVJ-TV reported. Kimberly Falkenstine, 33, was protesting coronavirus-related beach closures and refused to leave after officers confronted her, the station said.”
After all of this, police public relations will be in tatters, but they have their role to play as enforcement agents of the oppressive state apparatus.
