Thousands of protesters on foot and in vehicles converged Wednesday on Michigans capital to rally against Gov. Gretchen Whitmers stay-at-home orders in the state.
Operation Gridlock, organized by the Michigan Conservative Coalition, created a huge bumper-to-bumper traffic jam around the Michigan Capitol Building in Lansing, Fox 2 Detroit reported.
Meshawn Maddock, an organizer for the group, said the demonstrators include Republicans, Democrats, and independents.
It seems that Michigans authorities are not impressed with the ongoing protests as Michigan judge has issued an order authorizing a county health officer and police to arrest and jail anyone they suspect of being sick with the coronavirus.
The order has an unfilled blank for officers to write in names of those arrested said the Great Lakes Justice Center, which called the order unconstitutional.
As WND reported Judge Mark Trusock of the 17th Circuit Court issued the order in response to a request by Kent County Health Officer Adam London.
The judge ruled that any carrier and health threat presented with a copy of his order may be involuntarily detained by a peace officer, transported to and detained in an Involuntary Isolation Facility selected by the Health Officer for observation, testing, and/or treatment.
The judge further allows London to instruct the Involuntary Isolation Facility to detain an individual until the CHT has been confirmed by a physician and the health officer to be without a fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 72 consecutive hours (without use of fever reducing medication) and/or is otherwise non-symptomatic and meets the CDC criteria for release from isolation.
The judge wrote that the facility where people are jailed and all peace officers can rely on a copy of his order to detain anyone at the instruction of the health officer.
This order is unconstitutional, unlawful, and unenforceable. Any police officer or health official arresting or detaining a person under this illegal order is acting outside the scope of their legal authority and may face personal liability, GLJC said.
Operation Gridlock was just one of many demonstrations planned across the country to push back on the stay-at-home orders, calling on state governments to focus on the economic toll the coronavirus pandemic has caused along with taking care of the sick.
Nearly 17 million Americans have been laid off or furloughed in the past three weeks or one out of every 10 workers.
We must continue our fight for freedom and protect our constitutional rights!
Please share this article wherever you can. It is the only way we can work around their censorship and ensure people receive news about issues that the mainstream media suppress.
Hey, you look sick, That’s a crime around here. You’re looking at serious jail time, Buddy!
Yet ACTUAL criminals are being set loose. That’s a real good idear.
Michigan has gone completely off the rails under democrat “leadership.”
Lawyers will make a Killing
They're letting people OUT of jail because Kung flu.
And they're gonna put people IN jail because Kung flu.
You WILL get the treatment you need at our new "Involuntary Isolation Facility."
Wait. I thought they were letting criminals out of jail because of coronavirus.
Great, put them into a pressure cooker, high density environment, GUARANTEED to cause local infestation. Better off just shooting them (kidding)
Pushing us to see how far they can go.
Pushback hard or start learning Chinese, you’re gonna need it.
Now we know why they let so many prisoners out of jail. Need to make room for the viral-offenders!
Summary executions next.
This goes totally against the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
And people convicted of real and violent crimes are being released because COVID-19?
Rats get a pass in order to redeem themselves.
Revolution is just around the corner. What happened to due process?
If I'm a police officer in the area, I would suspect Judge Trusock and Adam London of carrying the virus. Probably their immediate family members, too.
Presumption of innocence has been turned upside down.
Everyone knows the classic news story of the “alleged” home intruder who allegedly attacks the homeowner in the kitchen and allegedly beats him with a stick until allegedly running off with a TV that was allegedly stolen from the alleged homeowner.
And here we have someone who looks feverish — we’re locking that boy up! No time for debate! I suspect he’s sick, and that’s all I need to put him in prison!
Where in Michigan would a suitable Lubyanka be?
The protesters should goose step around the capital building with Heil Hitler salutes. Of course the media would report this as being proof all conservatives are Nazia.
