Covid-19

Les from North New Brighton

To all the people who protested up and down the country yesterday. THANKS FOR NOTHING. While I appreciate your sentiments about a man,s death at the hands of American Police you completely forgot about the safety of others.

While I appreciate your sentiments about a man,s death at the hands of American Police you completely forgot about the safety of others. This country has just gone through one of the most stringent of times. Many people like myself have spent 2 months in self isolation and many business the same so that you people can thumb your nose at these restrictions. I hope there is no health consequences to this action. True a horrendous thing to happen to ANYONE at hands of the law, but what you people did could be a lot worse for many in this country if an outbreak is the result of your actions.
