Man handcuffed in front of daughter at Brighton park for violating social distancing
LINK

quote:

Matt Mooney feels Brighton police owe him a huge apology. The 33-year-old says he was handcuffed at Donelson Park in front of his 6-year-old daughter Sunday afternoon after police told him he violated the state’s social distancing guidelines.
quote:

Mooney told the FOX31 Problem Solvers he refused to provide his identification to three police officers because he was confident he wasn’t doing anything unlawful by playing tee-ball with his wife and daughter at the park.

“She's like, ‘Daddy, I don't want you to get arrested.' At this point I'm thinking, 'There's no way they're going to arrest me, this is insane.' I'm telling her, ‘Don't worry, Daddy's not going to get arrested. I've done nothing wrong. Don't worry about it,’ and then they arrest me."
quote:

The sign at Donelson Park said “Closed” but in smaller print reads, “in groups of no more than 4 persons, parks remain open for walking, hiking, biking, running and similar activities.” Mooney was just there with his wife and daughter. He said it was the officers who were violating social distancing guidelines.
Thankfully, the man was released.

That's what needs to be happening. social distancing isn't a request.

Police are NEVER a-holes, so it couldn’t be that.

He should have been flogged.

(Edited to explain to the Cletuses that this was sarcasm)

Dude acts like an a-hole in front of his kid by disrespecting the law and gets cuffed.

Nice lesson to teach his kid.

These are the guys who many naively believe will defend the right of private citizens to bear arms.

So, he was supposed to remain 6 feet away from his family members? The exact moment he said “I won’t get arrested” is what sealed his fate.

What a joke.

Amen. Those supporting the police for this type of behavior are the same cucks who like to sit in the corner and watch someone else frick their wife and daughter.

Yep.

Authoritarians are not stupid. They will feed the police stories of terrorism, and/or "extenuating circumstances", and they will trample on your rights with no qualms.

Seems like a conversation between the officers and the family could have prevented the arrest and the potential transfer of cooties betwixt all parties.

And if they are going to arrest the husband, the wife should have been arrested too.
