New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio doubled down on his demand that New Yorkers snitch on citizens who refuse to follow social distancing guidelines.
“In war times, in a time when people’s lives are threatened … I’m sorry, this is not snitching, this is saving lives,” the mayor told the New York Post. “When we were threatened with terrorism, no one doubted that it was right if you saw something to call it in immediately,” he said of suspicious behavior.
He urged citizens to take photographs of social distancing violators and send them to authorities.
“We need those photos. We need those locations so we can enforce right away,” he said.
The Post reports the mayor conceded that staying inside was only going to get harder with the arrival of gorgeous Springtime temperatures — but threatened to dole out $1,000 fines for those he failed to heed social distancing guidelines.
“If you don’t understand it yet, we’re gonna have to get tougher and tougher,” he said.
I’m so glad I evacuated New York City. I now live below the Mason-Dixon Line in what is known as “Free America.”
