Kind of silly. If the police even do respond to a percentage of these calls, the unenthused officers will warn them of the dangers of congregating and ask them to disperse. Since it’s New Zealand, most will likely obey the request. I love how the guy in the picture looks like the Baron von Trapp from "The Sound of Music. " Too funny

My friend’s friend (they live in France) was fined (1200 euros) for breaking lockdown. They will send him to prison if he does it again. And he is telling me that Paris is a ghost town these days.

I’d be curious to know the actual details of that encounter. Attitude often dictates response. It will never happen here in the States.

He had to carry some signed form with him, explaining where he is headed, why and for how long. Did not have it with him.
He also told me that they check on people who traveled abroad, to ensure they are self-isolating.

I’m guessing in a Democratic society he can challenge that and produce the document in hearing to waive the fine, but I’m only guessing. Different country different rules. France smacking down the hammer…

I know nothing about their rules, but they appear strict. I could not believe they would send him to prison though.
They are also having prison riots and their immigrant population is refusing to comply with these rules.

All signs things are becoming slightly unhinged.

I do not know what to make of it really, I’m very confused.
But I do know that they are looking at a long period of social unrest and recession.

That should not surprise us at all. In Europe, governments could now start sending messages that flying alligators are using lasers to fire coronavirus into their pill cases, and people would believe them.

If I could figure out this guy’s collar brass I’d ask him to sing, “Edelweiss.”

''Of course I’m guilty!" cried Parsons with a servile glance at the telescreen. ''You don’t think the Party would arrest an innocent man, do you?"

''Who denounced you?" asked Winston. ''It was my little daughter," said Parsons with a sort of doleful pride. ''She listened at the keyhole. Heard what I was saying, and nipped off to the patrols. Pretty smart for a nipper of seven, eh? I don’t bear her any grudge for it. In fact, I’m proud of her. It shows I brought her up in the right spirit, anyway."

They are using this situation to introduce a totalitarian state. It’s clear.

Stanford experiment is all you need to know about how humans treat one another.
