• Idaho Mom Arrested for Children Playing in the Park

    Sara Brady, a mother from Meridian, Idaho, was arrested on Tuesday, April 21st, after she joined a large group of parents in protesting Idaho’s Coronavirus Stay-At-Home order through a planned “Playdate Protest.”  The City of Meridian closed their playgrounds in March, in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, because of fears that the virus may live on plastic surfaces (such as plastic slides) for several days. Planned as a protest of Idaho’s Stay-at-Home order, through the Idaho Freedom Foundation and Health Freedom Idaho, a group of several dozen parents went to a closed playground at Kleiner Park in Meridian, Idaho, and “took back” the playground area - removing police tape that marked it as closed - so that their children could play.  Sara Brady was part of that group of parents. When told to leave the playground by an officer from the Meridian Police Department, Sara refused compliance and questioned authority to close the playground, citing her right to be in public spaces despite the statewide Stay-At-Home order issued by Idaho Governor Brad Little on March 25th. After Sara was repeatedly told to go away from the playground, and she still refused, she was arrested and charged with misdemeanor trespassing. Sara was forced to leave her young children in the park with the other protestors, while the police booked her into the Ada County Jail in Boise. Miste Gardner-Karlfeldt from Health Freedom Idaho points out “It was completely irresponsible for the police officer to arrest a mother without allowing her to first be sure that her children were taken care of. He showed callous disregard for the kids’ wellbeing.” Sara Brady tearfully shared her fears with the crowd at the Meridian City Hall protest after her arrest, “It’s just been scary for me, watching what has been going on. Because we live in a country we have to turn over to our kids. My kids saw me get arrested today for just being a mom in a park. What kind of an America is this?” “Do we want to live in an America like this?” she asked. “Our kids deserve better.”

    • TWO CALIFORNIA DOCTORS: "THE DATA IS SHOWING US IT'S TIME TO LIFT THE LOCKDOWN"! - Dr. Erickson COVID-19 Fact Briefing! - Must See Videos 1-2 - Apr 25, 2020
      Over the last two months, they’ve been intensely studying COVID-19 and those infected with the virus. And these honest. expert doctors conclude, based on the latest data, the lockdown was not justified and should be immediately lifted.
      Of the 5000+ people they’ve tested for COVID-19 in Kern County, 6.45% were positive. The doctors report they’ve seen a 0.03% death rate among those infected, with 96% of infected persons completely recovering.
      Noting there are 50-60 million annual flu deaths in the United States, and a flu death rate of 0.1%, Dr. Erickson said COVID-19 is "similar in prevalence and death rate to flu." Looking worldwide at nations that "lock down" and those that don't [such as Sweden], Dr. Erickson said, "It is not statistically significant whether you lock down or not. So why do we do it?"
      "We need to make sure that if you’re going to dance on someone's constitutional rights, you better have a good reason. You better have a really good scientific reason, and not just theory."
      "The data is showing us it's time to lift the lockdown"
      Also speaking was Dr. Artin Massihi, who said social distancing was needed initially, "but now that we have the data, we're seeing that 96, 97 percent of patients completely recover. And those 4 percent of patients that died have over 90% comorbidities
      Near the media briefing’s conclusion, Dr. Erickson warned about unscientific public policies, stating, "At what point, who says what's safe? Are you smart enough to know what's safe for you, or is the government going to tell you what's safe for you? As soon as they use the word 'safe,' that means control: 'We know what's safe for you. You're too dumb to understand disease. You see, we know what's safe.'"
      Finally, Dr. Erickson advised people to not accept government-imposed lockdowns. "They're going to use this model for different things. We get a bomb threat from China; 'everybody stay in their homes for 3 months. What? They are using this to see how much freedom can they take from you, and will you roll over and stay in your house - and it's working."

    The video of the arrest; I watched it, amazed. As for the officers; what about social distancing? They run around without an idea of what to do; no distancing, even at times when doing so looks to be an option. Additionally; what about face masks? What about gloves? These officers want to tell you what to do but do nothing themselves, nothing. The officers should be cited and arrested too. We hear big issues and concern hearing about COVID-19 in police and fire departments and on aircraft carriers too. You might think they'd be more concerned about public health and protection than doing nothing, conducting business-as-usual it seems. They should better exemplify the behavior and concern to fight this, before arresting innocent people exercising their constitutional rights. That's what I think.
