A large group of business owners in Erie County, New York, called on local authorities to bluff when they tried to close their meetings … and sent Johnny Lowe away.
This happened on Friday night at the CrossFit gym, called Athlets Unleashed in Orchard Park – not far from Buffalo – where more than 100 local businessmen and women gathered to discuss how to navigate the new directions of the state COVID-19 … which are again limiting hours, customers and access to New York.
While these people were meeting – with most of the non-masked people – Erie County Sheriff’s Deputies and health officials were making their way inside and trying to disperse the crowd … claiming they were in violation of Ruler. Cuomois the new rule for 10 people or less for public gatherings.
What happened next was nothing short of shocking … the crowd actually stood up and asked the cops and county workers to beat her – which they did.
They were expelled in a dramatic way, with the angry crowd chanting “Get away!” and “We will not comply!” as they followed the sheriff’s deputies and the others in the parking lot and back to their vehicles … like dogs with tails between their legs. It’s worth seeing – the cops are very folded.
This also raises a serious question – what powers do law enforcement agencies actually have in trying to impose state regulations ??? We contacted the Erie County Sheriff’s Office for further comment … I have no answer yet.
