Play Stupid Games, Get Charged For It

Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer and Lakewood Township Police Chief Gregory Meyer announced that on Sunday, March 29, 2020, Eliezer Silber, 37, and Miriam Silber, 34, both of Lakewood, were charged with five counts of Child Endangerment in violation of N.J.S.A. 9:6-1.

On March 29, 2020, members of the Lakewood Township Police Department were summoned to a residence on Alamitos Drive for a report of a gathering of people blocking the street. This gathering was in violation of Executive Order No. 107 signed by Governor Phil Murphy on March 21, 2020, which bans gatherings of individuals, whether they be at weddings, parties, celebrations, or other social events. Upon arrival, Officers discovered a gathering of approximately 40-50 people, including children, on the front lawn and in the street in front of the residence. The Officers ordered the crowd to disperse, and made contact with the owners of the residence, Eliezer and Miriam Silber. Eliezer Silber was charged with Violating Any Rule or Regulation Adopted by the Governor in violation of APP.A: 9-49h, as well as Endangering the Welfare of his five children who were at the gathering. Miriam Silber was likewise charged with Endangering the Welfare of her five children. They are both required to appear at a future court date in Ocean County Superior Court.
You have to wonder what sort of stupid, self-absorbed snowflake would throw such a shinding in this time.

We're finding out.

Here’s a blast from the past...7 days ago, in fact:

And yet the numbers just don't match the hysteria (again)

Here is the real data as per johns Hopkins:

WORLDWIDE:
375,450 cases
(7.5 BILLION people in the world...do the math)

16,371 TOTAL deaths blamed on this disease. (so far, "normal" seasonal flu has killed over 20,000 people this year)

For this we shut down our way of life and killed our economy?

Now over 775,000 cases (up 400,000, or about 106%, in a week). Deaths now over 37,000 (up 21,000, or about 125%). Both these figures are over ONE week. If it continues, the numbers would be 1,600,000+ and 80,000+ next Monday. Yea, for this we shut down, and I hope like hell it slows a bit now.

There's this piece in The Atlantic on conservatism rugged individualism and general ideological idiocy in the face of mortal danger
https://www.theatlantic.com/ideas/archive/2020/03/conservative-campaign-security/608986/
...and the Pentecostal pastor who held two services in Florida, got arrested and is out on $500 bail. If he's lucky, he and his flock won't be given a death sentence by the virus.

$500 bail!? WTF - I never got $500 bail for... punching out a parking meter. Jeez.

Pig probably had it in its pocket, walking around money. Yes, it.

There's such an automatic, knee-jerk reaction to politicize every new threat, and divide it into Left vs. Right sides... We're not far from the Plague of the Stupid People. This one is starting to look like it, but involves too many non-stupid people. Some future virus will infect only people that slap themselves in the face with a dead squirrel. Just one prominent Democratic politician needs to speak out about how to survive that pandemic and it will launch the stinky end of conservatism in the world.

One sentence in the article supplied by Stewart sums up the hypocrisy of conservatives, capitalists, and Republicans.

“Government support for individuals in need continues to be considered a threat to liberty, whereas government support for business is deemed necessary to preserve freedom.”
