Residents In Louisville Who Refuse To Self-Isolate Ordered To Wear Ankle Monitors

Published

on

Local and state governments are struggling to find ways to get the coronavirus outbreak under control, prompting many officials to take rather drastic measures to ensure folks abide by the “stay-at-home” orders being put into effect across the country.

The most extreme thus far seems to becoming from a judge in Kentucky who is currently ordering people who refuse to self-isolate after they have been in contact with people who have been exposed to coronavirus patients to wear ankle monitors.

These measures are being taken in Jefferson County, the home of the city of Louisville, according to new reports from CNN affiliate WDRB.

One individual who is only being identified as D.L., a resident of the city of Louisville, was living in a home with someone who tested positive for the coronavirus and with another person who was a presumptive case. D.L. was then ordered to isolate, but “leaves the house often,” according to family members.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Angela Bisig ordered the Department of Corrections to fit D.L. with an ankle monitor.

There are at least three other cases of people in Louisville breaking self-isolation orders in the area who were subsequently fit for ankle monitors.

States have cracked down on self-isolation recently, including in New York, where Gov. Andrew Cuomo called on the New York Police Department to be “more aggressive” and in Pennsylvania, where a woman was pulled over and fined for taking a leisurely drive alone.

Now, it’s important to really examine these particular cases coming out of Kentucky. These are people who have actually been exposed to the virus. It doesn’t seem too far out of bounds to keep folks who have been around those who have the virus from leaving their homes until the end of the suggested 14-day quarantine period.

However, it might be a touch too much to use ankle monitors. But if the person is refusing to stay home, there may not be any other way. The whole thing is a rather tricky situation to navigate.

On the flip side, many of the measures taken by other places, like Pennsylvania, are absolutely absurd. Driving around in one’s vehicle, alone, isn’t going to expose anyone to the virus. It’s way too taxing on a person’s mental health to expect them to stay locked in their houses for months at a time.

Here’s to hoping this situation blows over soon.

Seattle Police Chief Shreds City Council After Angry Activists Target Her Home

Published

The chief of police for the city of Seattle has come out hard against city council for allowing “mob rule” in the city after angry activists — the same folks who claim to be out for equality and tolerance — targeted her home over the weekend, which caused fear to spread among her neighbors. Folks, no matter what side of the issue you stand on, the fact that individuals are feeling threatened by acts of violence and rioting due to the work of these people and their unhinged behavior is totally unacceptable. Here’s more on this from The Daily Wire: “I wanted to update you on recent events, particularly those that occurred late last night,” Best wrote in a letter addressed to City Council President Lorena González and Public Safety Chair Lisa Herbold. “A residence of mine in Snohomish County was targeted by a large group of aggressive protestors late last night. My neighbors were concerned by such a large group, but they were successful in ensuring the crowd was not able to trespass or engage in other illegal behavior in the area, despite repeated attempts to do so. Currently, the local sheriff (not SPD resources) is monitoring the situation.” “I urge both of you, and the entire council, to stand up for what is right. These direct actions against elected officials, and especially civil servants like myself, are out of line with and go against every democratic principle that guides our nation,” Best continued. “Before this devolves into the new way of doing business by mob rule here in Seattle, and across the nation, elected officials like you must forcefully call for the end of these tactics.” “The events of this summer were initiated in a moment of grief and outrage over the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis…

Ex-White House Spokesman Says Joe Biden Shouldn’t Debate President Trump

Published

on

One of the major benefits of having all of this coronavirus hoopla going on in our nation is that the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, Joe Biden, has an excuse to avoid public appearances and making a bigger fool of himself than he already has over the last 12 months. Then again, maybe that’s why the left is fighting so hard to keep mass gatherings limited or completely banned? Perhaps, just maybe, Biden’s campaign doesn’t want the guy to be able to debate Trump publicly for fear of how much of a fool he’ll look like and out of fear that the stupid things he says will be impossible to bounce back from? If you think that sounds far-fetched, check out what a former press secretary for President Bill “let’s party hardy at Epstein Island” Clinton said about Biden debating the president. He said Biden should just not show up. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: Joe Lockhart penned an op-ed piece for CNN in which he advises the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate to ignore the three debates, which begin Sept. 29. “Whatever you do, don’t debate Trump,” Lockhart wrote last week. “Trump has made more than 20,000 misleading or false statements according to the Washington Post. It’s a fool’s errand to enter the ring with someone who can’t follow the rules or the truth. Biden will undoubtedly take heat from Republicans and the media for skipping the debates. But it’s worth the risk as trying to debate someone incapable of telling the truth is an impossible contest to win.” Yeah. Or you could just admit that your candidate has clear mental health issues going on and you’re afraid he’s going to say something incoherent or outrageous that’s going to draw a lot of attention. Just tell the truth, folks. And…
