Wuhan Flu Lockdowns Are Teaching Local Police To Manhandle Citizens

The constitutional mettle of the coronavirus-era power grabs will be a well-worn case study in the decades to come.

As long as many states flirt with the idea of a post-Bill of Rights future, the same officers we depend on now to keep the peace have a distinct choice. Their oaths include fidelity to their instructions, but far more importantly a pledge to uphold and defend the Constitution.

Even during a crisis, many officers and police departments will soon find that there is no moral or legal defense behind simply “following orders.”

The LEOs faith and allegiance is to their benefits, their pensions and their unions. Never expect them to show fealty to the rights of the citizenry.

We’re on our own folks. Luca Brasi
