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.

CDC Now Investigating 180 Cases of Children With Hepatitis of “Unknown Cause”

But other experts say it was caused by lockdown weakening immune systems.

The CDC is now investigating 180 cases of children with hepatitis of an “unknown cause,” although health experts in the UK say the cause is likely kids having weakened immune systems due to lockdown.

Five deaths have occurred in the U.S. as a result of the infections, which have swept the globe, impacting numerous countries.

“Adenovirus infection is being investigated as being the possible cause, with nearly half the kids testing positive for the pathogen,” reports CNBC. “Adenovirus is a common virus that normally causes cold or flu-like symptoms. It is not a known cause of hepatitis in otherwise healthy children.”

As we highlighted last month, health experts in the UK warned that the outbreak was likely caused by multiple COVID-19 lockdowns preventing kids from socializing with others and therefore developing strong immune systems.

Adenoviruses cause the common cold, but this can develop into hepatitis if a weakened immune system is unable to fight it off.

“I think it is likely that children mixing in kindergartens and schools have lower immunity to seasonal adenoviruses than in previous years because of restrictions,” said Professor Simon Taylor-Robinson.

“This means they could be more at risk of developing hepatitis because their immune response is weaker to the virus,” he added.

Nowhere in the mainstream reporting of this new surge in cases is it mentioned that multiple lockdowns could have caused the outbreak

Instead, the CDC is still “conducting lab tests to see if the Covid virus might also be a possible cause,” despite the fact that the children impacted in the initial cluster of cases in Alabama did not have COVID-19.

The legacy media is loathe to admit that the same lockdowns they vehemently supported will have drastic consequences for years to come.

As we previously highlighted, a new study published in the Royal Society Open Science journal found that lockdowns in the UK caused around 60,000 children to suffer clinical depression.

A major study by Johns Hopkins University concluded that global lockdowns have had a much more detrimental impact on society than they have produced any benefit, with researchers urging that they “are ill-founded and should be rejected as a pandemic policy instrument.”

Many infants are also suffering from cognitive developmental and speech disorders due to adults wearing face coverings during the pandemic.

Pew Survey Finds COVID Has Virtually Disappeared as a Major Concern For Americans

It’s over, but some restrictions remain.

Illustrating how the issue has largely disappeared, a new poll of Americans finds COVID to be the least of their concerns out of a list of 12 different subjects.

The survey was conducted by Pew Research between April 25-May 1.

Just 19 per cent of respondents said COVID was still a “very big problem,” while 31 per cent said it was a “small problem” and a further 12 per cent said it was “not a problem at all.”

In comparison, 70 per cent of Americans said inflation was a “very big problem,” with a further 23 per cent describing it as a “moderately big problem.”

Ten other issues, including violent crime, illegal immigration and the condition of infrastructure, all rank above COVID-19 in terms of being more of a concern.

As one commentator observed, the war in Ukraine appears nowhere on the list, although Pew chose not to include it as an option.

“Democrats are nearly four times as likely as Republicans to rate climate change as a very big problem (63% vs. 16%),” reports Pew. “Republicans, by contrast, are far more likely than Democrats to view illegal immigration as a very big problem (65% vs. 19%).”

Despite the pandemic virtually being over, numerous states are still enforcing indoor mask mandates and other COVID restrictions that refuse to die.

As we highlighted yesterday, Broadway star Patti LuPone launched an angry rant at an audience member for not wearing a mask properly during a Q&A session despite the fact that she wasn’t wearing one inside the theater.
