New Jersey Woman Charged With Plotting to Violate Governor's Stay-at-Home Order

The New Jersey woman who helped organize and film a protest in the state capitol of Trenton against Governor Phil Murphy's stay-at-home orders was charged by the state police with violating the emergency decrees. The information comes to us via a press release from the state's attorney general, Gurbir S. Grewal and Colonel Patrick J. Callahan, Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police.
That's some pretty heavy artillery to keep a lone woman in line. All she did was exercise her right to organize a protest and film it. NJ.com: The protestors gathered outside the Statehouse and other locations in Trenton on Friday afternoon as Murphy and state health officials held their daily coronavirus press briefing.
A video taken by a woman who was live streaming the protest on Facebook showed people driving by the Statehouse honking their horns with American flags waving from their windows and others holding signs and flags on the sidewalk in front of the building. A woman holding a megaphone could also be seen among the relatively small crowd along with a group of masked New Jersey State Police troopers that the woman filming kept panning over to during the course of the nearly 10-minute long video.
Did the attorney general and superintendent of the state police really have to issue a press release about bringing the heavy-hand of government down on one, lone woman whose only crime was that she was outdoors filming a protest? That press release was obviously designed to scare off other protesters. Isn't that kind of like, well, sort of... tyranny?
Incredibly, AG Grewal bragged about the "enforcement action" in a tweet. AG Gurbir Grewal ✔@NewJerseyOAG If you think emergency orders are more like guidelines than actual rules, think again. Here’s the latest on our

Tweets at link. Well, Gov Murphy Asshat said stuff like the 1A and civil liberties are above his payscale. Rhetorical question of the day, if it were an anti Trump protest replete with masked anQUEEFas, would the heavy hand of the state be weirded just as agressively?

If people in the fascist lib states had an ounce of sense they wouldn’t live there. But, since they do they should be ready for this crap with a Lawsuit ready to drop a moment after they are arrested or fined for protesting gov’t.

IMHO he’s deserving of impeachment and a looooong jail sentence.

I know what you mean. I finally turned off my “autocorrect.” Seemed like correcting mistakes was the last thing it did.

Protests are essential when Tyrannical Twits ignore our Constitutional rights.

Guilty in thought and word but not deed. My catholic catechism says it’s a sin, but government cannot make it a crime.

I'm not a lawyer but I don't see where any governor or elected or unelected bureaucrat has any legal authority to do this.

They could have that smile wiped off their faces soon. If I were a judge I would definitely listen to a lack of authority/unconstitutionality defense. Do you really want a judicial challenge where you have the highest burden of proof, Guv?

“whose only crime was that she was outdoors filming a protest?”

Which of course is not even a crime.

I know some kids who pulled off a 6 person BBQ on Friday night by using encrypted chat and leaving their cell phones at home. And parking their cars out of sight.

Well, if this isn’t a violation of the 1st Amendment, then I don’t know what one is. Every single last one of these mother lovin’ commies needs to rot in jail.
