And then in the same breath the police told Pat they were instead issuing him a $1,255 ticket for allegedly violating the Quarantine Act!

Far too many freedoms have been stripped away from many Americans, such as going fishing, driving, playing basketball, sitting in their cars, or throwing a yard sale.
