New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal and State Police Supt. Patrick J. Callahan announced that dozens of residents had either been arrested or issued citations for violating the mandatory “stay at home order.”
“Staying home and maintaining social distance isn’t just the best advice to stay healthy, it’s the law. Make no mistake, we will do everything in our power to keep our residents and officers safe, and that means we won’t hesitate to file charges against violators,” the attorney general warned.
Kim Pagan, of Toms River, was charged with organizing a “prohibited event” outside the State House in Trenton. Her crime was to organize a demonstration against the governor’s executive orders.
The Newark Police Dept. issued 90 summonses for violating emergency orders. Seven law-abiding business owners were ordered to shut down.
While the right to Peaceably assemble and protest is deeply enshrined in the Constitution, stay at Home orders is mentioned exactly NO WHERE. Nor is the Concept that the Peoples Constitutional right are suspended if they get sick or at risk of getting sick. Never in America’s History has any such thing occurred, even at a time when actual plague’s were running rampant in our Country.
Violations of the emergency orders constitute a disorderly persons offense carrying a potential sentence of up to six months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. However, the attorney general said violators can potentially face criminal charges including second, third, and fourth degree indictable offenses.
“Our police officers are working bravely and tirelessly every day to protect us during this health crisis. Regrettably, they are being called upon far too often to deal with people violating the emergency orders— or what is more egregious, people using the virus to spread fear or impede officers in their vital work,” the attorney general said.
Gov. Phil Murphy, Attorney General Grewal and their jackbooted state police enforcers are becoming more like the Chinese government every day.
