Oregon governor orders residents to sneak up on neighbors who’re violating coronavirus guidelines

Oregon Governor Kate Brown has ordered citizens of the state to cheat on their neighbors if they see them breaking coronavirus rules.

Brown: Citizens should cheat on their neighbors to keep people safe

Governor Brown said people should call the police if they see they are violating the coronavirus rules Oregon recently put in place. The state has introduced a two-week “freeze” in which people limit themselves to meeting in no more than six groups of two households inside and outside.

“It’s no different than what happens when there’s a party on the street and everyone stays up,” Brown said in an interview on Friday.

“What are the neighbors doing? [if they see that happening]? You’re calling law enforcement because it’s too loud. It’s just like that. It’s like violating a noise regulation, ”she continued.

“For the past eight months, I’ve been asking Oregonians to follow the letter and spirit of the law, and we haven’t made a decision to hire law enforcement,” Brown added. “Unfortunately at this point we have no other option.”

Anyone who breaks the rules can face up to 30 days in jail and a maximum fine of $ 1,250. While not required, Brown encouraged Oregon citizens to “rethink” how they celebrate Thanksgiving and “wear a mask.”

We are in the pandemic for eight months. We all have COVID fatigue. But we have to stay vigilant. As the holidays approach, the best way to show our love this season is to reconsider how we celebrate. I urge all Oregonians to limit their vacation get-togethers and wear a mask! pic.twitter.com/orcsXuDwQM

Oregon Allows Riots, But No Thanksgiving Day!

The plan was heavily criticized by politicians.

“You can get locked up in Oregon because there are too many people around Thanksgiving,” tweeted Ohio representative Jim Jordan. “But if you want to riot and pillage in Portland, don’t sweat!”

In Oregon, you can get locked up for having too many people for Thanksgiving.

But if you want to rampage and pillage in Portland, don’t sweat!

The plan set out by Governor Brown does not specifically address riots and protests, but does allow for indoor religious gatherings for up to 25 people and 50 people outdoors. However, the riots in Portland were not even mentioned as the cause of the spread of the coronavirus by Oregon authorities.

Representative Jordan attacked coronavirus regulations more broadly in an interview with Fox News on Sunday.

“It’s gotten so ridiculous and we’re forgetting this is America,” said Jordan.

“When the first lock came in, the United States Attorney General sent a memo to all US attorneys … towards the end of the memo he had a great line. He said: “The constitution will not be repealed during a crisis.” And amen too, ”Jordan continued.
