Detention Center Will No Longer Arrest & Hold Certain Suspects Due to Coronavirus

Follows Philly police decision that arrest of burglars and other criminals would be ‘delayed’.

A leaked memo from a detention center in the United States advises prison staff that it will no longer be arresting and holding certain suspects as a result of the coronavirus.

The memo was leaked on social media platform Telegram and is marked “not for public release.” The name of the detention center has been redacted.

The memo states that “until further notice” the detention center will “only accept arrest and physically hold for” felonies, domestic violence charges and DWI.

All arrestees in these categories will have their temperatures taken and be placed in the “Drunk Tank” until they can be quarantined.

“All other arrest brought into the facility will be given a court date and released,” adds the memo.

This follows an announcement by police in Philadelphia that they would “delay” the arrests of car thieves, robbers, burglars, vandals, prostitutes and more to reduce the risk of officers getting coronavirus.

“Instead, suspects will be temporarily detained while officers can verify their identification. If they are not deemed a threat, they will be released and a warrant will be prepared for a future arrest,” reports the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Some people have reacted to the news by drawing comparisons to The Purge, an apocalyptic movie in which all crimes are made legal for a 12-hour period once a year.

One major difference it seems is that in Philly and possibly elsewhere, this will last a lot longer than 12 hours.

People Prevented From Buying “Non-Essential” Items Due to Lockdown

People living under new lockdown rules in Wales have been prevented from buying so-called “non-essential” items, which are being covered with plastic sheeting at supermarkets.

“Non-essential items being covered up in supermarkets in Wales. Has it really come to this?” asked journalist Grant Tucker.

The image shows shop workers covering up what appear to be duvets and other bedding products.

Why people should be prevented from buying bedding products during a coronavirus lockdown is anyone’s guess, but it’s par for the course given how much society has been deformed thanks to such petty restrictions.

As we previously highlighted, during the first lockdown back in April, a police force in the UK threatened to start searching people’s shopping baskets in order to catch coronavirus lockdown violators.

Northamptonshire Police chief constable Nick Adderley prompted outrage after he appeared in a video to warn people who were buying unessential items at grocery stores that their purchases may be scrutinized by the authorities.

“We will not at this stage be starting to marshal supermarkets and checking the items in baskets and trolleys to see whether it’s a legitimate, necessary item but again be under no illusion, if people do not heed the warnings and the pleas that I’m making today, we will start to do that,” said Adderley.

In the same month, one shopper was fined by police for buying wine and potato chips, which were deemed to be “non-essential” items.

Residents of Wales are currently under a ‘Tier 3’ lockdown, which means people are being urged to stay at home, must not visit other households, while pubs, restaurants, gyms, churches and shops deemed “non-essential” are all closed.

Kamala Harris: “220 Million Americans Died” From COVID

Whoops.

Kamala Harris has one-upped Joe Biden’s numerous coronavirus speaking gaffes after she claimed that 220 million Americans had died as a result of COVID-19.

“We’re looking at over 220 million Americans who just in the last several months died,” said the Vice Presidential candidate.

Harris obviously meant to say 220 thousand, but her verbal slip up is a continuation of a trend that has befallen Joe Biden on several occasions.

Biden has wildly exaggerated the death toll of coronavirus at least three separate times.

During a speech honoring Ruth Bader Ginsburg last month, Biden blamed President Trump for the spread of the virus and stated, “It’s estimated that 200 million people have died—probably by the time I—finish this talk.”

Back in May, Biden also claimed that the virus had cost the, “lives of millions of people, millions of people.”

A month later, the former VP claimed that coronavirus had killed 120 million Americans.

One wonders whether the verbal gaffes are making some Americans actually believe that the COVID-19 death toll is actually far higher than the real number.

A survey published earlier this year found that the average American thought 9 per cent of the population had died from coronavirus, a figure which equates to over 30 million people.

Sweden Refuses to Impose New Lockdown Measures, Saying People Have Suffered Enough

Loneliness, mental health impact of lockdown balanced against COVID threat.

Health authorities in Sweden have refused to follow the rest of Europe by imposing new coronavirus lockdown measures on their population, arguing that those beset by loneliness and misery of being isolated have suffered enough.

Despite Sweden mirroring other countries on the continent with rising coronavirus infections, the government has held firm in refusing to lockdown its population, weighing the untold misery and health impacts of isolation against the threat of COVID-19.

“The elderly, they said, have suffered enough,” writes Fraser Nelson. “They have spent months being advised to avoid public transport, shopping malls and other parts of everyday life. And the result? Loneliness. Misery. This is more than unpleasant: it quickly translates into depression, mental health issues and mortality. “We cannot only think about infection control,” said Lena Hallengren, Sweden’s health minister, “we also need to think about public health.” An important distinction: focus on Covid to the exclusion of other conditions and you risk lives.”

Hallengren’s 21 page report also uncovered a “decline in mental health” that was “likely to worsen the longer the recommendations remain in place,” leading officials to lift lockdown restrictions that previously applied to over-70s.

After deciding to take a “herd immunity” approach to COVID-19 at the start of the pandemic, Sweden was roundly condemned for not following the harsh lockdowns imposed by virtually every other major European country.

However, as Newsweek acknowledged, Sweden’s COVID-19 death rate is lower than those of Spain, the UK and Italy, countries which all imposed draconian lockdowns.

Unlike the rest of the continent, Sweden’s economy is also in a far better position to make a swifter recovery.

The country’s senior epidemiologist Anders Tengell has also criticized the wearing of face masks as “very dangerous” because it gives a false sense of security but does not effectively stem the spread of the virus.
