Is this our life now?

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

In this day of stay-at-home orders, face masks, social distancing, and “snitching,” Americans are wondering what the future holds for them. Will their neighbors “snitch” on them if they have someone over to their house?

Will they be violently arrested for not “social distancing?” Will they be assaulted for not wearing a face-mask in public? Is America becoming a police state?

How far will this go? 40 people in New York City were arrested because they were not maintaining social distance. Also in NYC, a plainclothes officer stunned and tackled someone for violating social distancing rules. Stylists are being arrested for cutting people’s hair.

Are we already living in a police state?

Hotlines and arrests

New York City has a “hotline” to report violators of social distancing here. Martin County, Florida has so many snitches, that they asked people not to use 911 to call in violations of social distancing, as their system is being overwhelmed. They, along with many other cities,  have a special hotline for snitches.

The juvenile need to tattletale on your neighbors is being encouraged on many levels. Mayors of large US cities are encouraging people to snitch on their neighbors, and anyone else they see violating the rules during this current pandemic. According to Reason,

“Snitches are emerging as enthusiastic allies as cities, states, and countries work to enforce directives meant to limit person-to-person contact amid the virus pandemic that has claimed tens of thousands of lives worldwide,” reports the AP. “They’re phoning police and municipal hotlines, complaining to elected officials and shaming perceived scofflaws on social media.”

Denunciation

These modern-day “denunciations” set a precedent that is dangerous to America, as it pits neighbors against neighbors, further dividing communities that are already struggling. People should stop and think about what their communities will be like after COVID-19  before they snitch on their neighbors.
