Videos: UK Police Harass And Arrest People For Going To Work, Shops

“We’re the police, we’re not just someone, you idiot”

Two viral videos encapsulate the state of the UK at the moment with police abusing powers given to them to enforce lockdown laws. In one case a man was arrested on his way to work for not identifying himself, while another who went to a shop was hauled away for not wearing a mask properly.

West Midlands police were forced to apologise after a man in Solihull was followed, called an idiot, and finally arrested by overly officious police.

The police can be seen harassing the man, asking him where he is going, where he lives and demanding his name.

The guy was just trying to go to work.

When the man refused to give his name, saying “don’t worry about it”, and asked the officer to turn on his body cam, the harassment was ratcheted up.

“What do you mean don’t worry about it?” the officer replied, adding “We’re here to enforce legislation, mate, so I need to know who you are.”

“You don’t need to know who I am – I haven’t committed an offence,” the man replied.

The officer then threatened “under coronavirus legislation you have to provide me with some details, otherwise you’re going to be arrested.”

When the man asked what he was going to be arrested for, the officer said he was “arguing” and that was providing “reasonable suspicion”.

“You’re obviously just harassing me, because I’ve got a hoodie on, I’ve got a coat on, I’m on my way to work, I’m a normal citizen,” the guy replied, adding “Why would I allow someone to just pull me over?”

The officer then replied “We’re the police, we’re not just someone, you idiot.”

“What, so just because you’re the police, that gives you the right to stop anyone you want and get their details?” the man replied, urging “You need to be reinformed about the law.”

The officer then hauled the man away.

The police force later issued a statement noting that “It’s clear that the officer’s conduct fell far below what we would expect.”

“The man explained he was heading to work – that’s clearly a justifiable reason to be out and about and there was no suspicion he had committed any offences,” the statement continued, concluding “As such, he should not have been challenged in the way he was.”

This is far from an isolated incident, with another video emerging showing officers in Merseyside pinning a man to the floor of a supermarket after he refused to give them his name.

Police claim the man was wearing a mask around his neck, not covering the face, which is why officers approached him.

However, the man insisted that he only lowered the mask to clean his glasses, which had steamed up.

“I didn’t want to give my details because I hadn’t done anything wrong and when he grabbed me I tried to pull away,” the man told reporters.

“I was startled and I didn’t know what to do so I tried to get him away from me. He then put my hands behind my back and pushed me onto the floor,” the man added.

Police ejected him from the store and fined him £100, stopping short of arrest.

Supermarkets are being patrolled by police and inspected amid claims that they are not enforcing social distancing rules effectively enough. Some may face fines for ‘bending the rules’, according to reports.

People have been encouraged not to socialise or even talk to friends in the street or supermarket.

In a separate incident, a couple with a baby and a pushchair were grilled by COVID police in Birmingham city centre merely for walking on the street. The report noted that the Police Community Support Officers then began quizzing people who had arrived at a pharmacy to pick up prescription drugs.

Police are also harassing old ladies feeding pigeons, and others walking and sitting on benches in parks or along waterfronts.

Two women were interrogated and fined by police for going on a walk in a remote area 5 miles from where they lived despite this not being illegal under coronavirus laws. Police told the women that hot drinks they were carrying constituted a “picnic”.

The women, Jessica Allen and Eliza Moore, told reporters that the police appeared ‘desperate to fine them’.

As we have previously reported, police recently announced the adoption of a new ‘hardline’ lockdown policy to stop and question people if they are out in the street, and to issue on the spot fines if they cannot provide a reasonable excuse for being out of their houses.

Police also said they would specifically target ‘anti-lockdown, anti-vaccine protesters’, saying that “we now have a hardcore element who are against the rules.”

Police are also demanding new powers to force entry into the homes of suspected lockdown violators.

Videos have already emerged of cops entering people’s homes after receiving reports from snitching neighbours reporting visitors.

As we also highlighted, police are threatening people with fines if they enjoy winter weather.

One local police force even angrily tweeted about “2 reports of snowballs being thrown” in violation of coronavirus lockdown rules.

Another police force threatened people with fines for planning to go sledging in a remote area of North Yorkshire.

Avon and Somerset Police even boasted about fining a person for sitting in their car alone, eating a kebab.

When it comes to following the rules themselves, some police don’t seem to care about complying.

Video emerged of police officers themselves sitting down in a cafe drinking coffee, with the person filming them questioning why they were not following the rules.

One Rule For Us… Google Co-Founder Allowed To Enter Country With Closed Border While Others, Including Citizens, Were Blocked

Elites making their own rules amid pandemic

Billionaire Google Co-founder Larry Page, who has been isolating from the rest of the world by buying remote Fijian islands, was granted access to enter New Zealand, while practically everyone else was barred from entering the country, it has emerged.

Page reportedly sought medical treatment for his twelve year old son earlier this year in the country’s capital Aukland.

While even New Zealand citizens and permanent residents of the country were barred from entering without facing a raft of restrictions, including  spending two weeks at a government quarantine facility, Page was allowed to just walk right in.

He isn’t even a resident of the country, so should have been turned away as per the government’s restrictions. However, it appears that Page received approval from the Ministry of Health or a district health board to waive the rules.

New Zealand Health Minister Andrew Little confirmed that Page was granted entry to the country after a 1300 mile flight from Fiji with his son in January for urgent medical treatment.

Questions about whether Page underwent any quarantine after arriving went unanswered.

New Zealanders living abroad have reacted to the revelations with anger, as many have been unable to return to their home country to visit their families.

“The Government has questions to answer about why billionaire Google co-founder Larry Page was allowed into New Zealand when desperate Kiwis and separated families can’t get through the border,” David Seymour, leader of the opposition party in New Zealand has urged.

As we previously reported, Page is one of many billionaire elitists who have segregated themselves from the rest of the world on luxury private islands, while the rest of the world is told they cannot travel.

Page has been hiding out on and buying isolated private islands in Fiji to avoid tourists who aren’t allowed in.

Video: Rand Paul Calls NIH Director “Stupid” After Call To Wear Masks At Home

“There is no science to defend putting your kids in masks or parents wearing masks—no science whatsoever.”

Senator Rand Paul denounced “stupid” comments made on CNN by National Institutes of Health director Dr. Francis Collins, after the direct underling of Anthony Fauci declared that parents with children under the age of 12 should wear face masks INSIDE their own homes.

Appearing on Fox News, an exasperated Paul urged “How can people who are so smart say such stupid things?”

Watch:

“There is no science to defend putting your kids in masks or parents wearing masks—no science whatsoever,” Paul emphasised, adding “If there were, we would be wearing masks for years and years because for kids, the death rate is about the same as the seasonal flu. It may be less than the seasonal flu.”

The Senator continued, “So, is Francis Collins proposing that because the flu is with us forever that parents should be wearing masks around their kids that have the flu? It is absolutely and utterly without scientific evidence!”

Going on to speak regarding the government fear mongering over the Delta (or Indian) variant of the virus, Paul said “Now, they’re all freaking out right now about the Delta variant. One thing is—in all likelihood true—it is more transmissible, significantly more transmissible, but guess what? Every bit of evidence shows that it’s less deadly—significantly less deadly.”

“Public Health England looked at 92,000 people. If you were vaccinated and under 50, there were no deaths. If you were unvaccinated and under 50, .08%—still very, very small. So, it’s not an argument for not getting vaccinated. It’s an argument for not getting hysterical over the Delta variant,” Paul further urged.

He continued “We shouldn’t be changing any mandates and really, in all likelihood, the masks didn’t affect the trajectory of the virus at all.”

Paul, a qualified physician, further explained “The only thing that’s slowing the virus down is the vaccine and natural immunity and they continue to ignore natural immunity because they think we are too far behind.”

“We got to vaccinate the children but, in reality I think it’s 90% of people over 65 have been vaccinated. That’s extraordinary. We should be celebrating,” Paul concluded.

Following the interview, Paul tweeted out a report noting that the FDA has approved the use of COVID-19 antibody therapy, meaning Monoclonal antibodies can be given to elderly spouses or family members who live with someone who has COVID 19.

Hooray for REAL Science!

Paul also reacted to being censored by YouTube after an interview he did with Newsmax on the lack of efficacy of cloth face masks was removed purely because it contradicts what the government says about masks.

Senator Introduces Legislation To Mandate Voter ID For States That Mandate Vaccine Passports

Bill will “shine a light on those who hypocritically oppose voter ID laws but support vaccine passports.”

After New York City announced that it will mandate vaccine passports for entry to events and even restaurants and gyms, a Republican Senator has introduced a bill that would make it mandatory for any state using a vaccine pass system to also use a voter ID system.

The government mandated vaccine pass, which is being called the “Key to NYC Pass,” will become effective later this month and will also apply to employees of businesses using it.

The New York Post reports that the scheme “marks a significant escalation of the city’s efforts to curb the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases driven by the Delta variant, and will launch in mid-August and enforcement will begin in September following a public service announcement campaign, administration officials said.”

The report notes that there will not be an option to produce a negative test, and just as in San Francisco’s bars, the unvaccinated will be forced to eat and drink outdoors only.

Mayor Bill de Blasio proclaimed last week “We’ve got to shake people at this point and say, ‘Come on now.’ We tried voluntary. We could not have been more kind and compassionate. Free testing, everywhere you turn, incentives, friendly, warm embrace. The voluntary phase is over. It’s time for mandates, because it’s the only way to protect our people.”

New York is now officially a two tier city.

Curiously though, anyone can still vote there without showing ID, a double standard exposed by Sen. Kevin Cramer, R-North Dakota, who has introduced a bill to mandate voter ID.

“If states that take federal money for elections feel the need to make residents verify a piece of information as private as their vaccination status just to return to normalcy, then they should have no problem requiring people to prove they are who they say they are when they go to vote,” Cramer said in a statement.

Cramer added that the measure “would ensure that those states are consistent in their identification requirements and shine a light on those who hypocritically oppose voter ID laws but support vaccine passports.”

When asked about the vaccine passport mandate in New York, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki expressed support, dismissing Peter Doocy’s point that many Americans are waiting for the FDA to fully approve vaccines or simply do not want the vaccine for religious or medical reasons.

Psaki also avoided answering a question from a Daily Caller reporter who noted that communities of color have lower vaccination rates than white New Yorkers, and therefore the same ‘it’s discriminatory’ argument Democrats have applied against the introduction of voter ID applies to the vaccine pass system.

Others pointed out the double standard:
