In every sense of the word, this is preposterous.
Watch as multiple police officers push through the door of a home in Gatineau, Canada and start pulling people outside.
A small New Year's gathering of six people.
This is wrong. Absolutely, altogether, unconditionally, wholly, conclusively, and utterly wrong.
The incident reportedly occurred on December 31 when a neighbor called the Gestapo – err, police – to inform them that some Jews – I mean, residents – were hosting a small, quiet gathering on their private property.
Six police – the same number as were gathered in the home – arrived at the door and attempted to break up this nefarious gathering of humans wanting to have physical interaction. They probably told them that they must return to their own residences to die alone and afraid, like all good citizens.
"The agents asked for their collaboration to put an end to the gathering, but they were disallowed," said Lieutenant Éric Simard, who will no doubt be commended for his brave actions by the Staatspolizei.
At least one of the guests, the man in the video, resisted, leading to the police dragging him out of the door and throwing him facedown in the snow on the asphalt so that he could be properly detained. Another woman can be seen being held by what looks like the garage.
The "criminals" were also fined $1,546 per person for the illegal gathering.
Do you still think it's about a virus with a 99.98% survival rate?
Or do you think it might be about something else?
I'll leave you to ponder.
