Either way they lied! They should have stopped the protest because the threat to the public safety was to grave over social distancing concerns or social distancing at this point is a joke. In one to two weeks we’ll know the verdict and those in authority should be the one’s convicted. Some might say well it’s outside and social distancing doesn’t play a role there. Then if that is the case then let’s open up outdoor venues such as concerts, baseball games, NASCAR races and this time with attendees. G-D forbid the other verdict comes out and death from the Pandemic resumes then we can blame many a public officials and Lame Street media for provoking a much worse outcome then the cause of these protests.
