Two Louisville coronavirus patients and a family member have been ordered by circuit judges to isolate and wear tracking devices after health officials learned they’d been in public against medical advice.
It is astonishing to watch two narratives playing out simultaneously not only across the world in general, as well as here at home in America in particular. The first one is our ongoing battle with the COVID-19 coronavirus, and how best to remediate against it. The second is how far will our government – local, state and federal – suspend our constitutional rights to effect the remedy? This are already crazy, but if you thought the craziness was going to subside anytime soon, you are quite mistaken.
As we said yesterday, while COVID-19 is a real virus that is really killing people like all viruses do, it seems that it is being used as a pretext to implement the Cloward-Piven 8-step strategy to collapse our economy in order to install a Progressive, Socialist new government. Yes, I know people who have died from the COVID-19 coronavirus, but none of those people were young, and they all were in various stages of pre-existing poor health. People die from the flu, too. I don’t want to catch it to find out how well my own body would fight it off, but suffice to say the vast majority of COVID-19 sufferers were not in good health to start with.
I want you to look at today’s story, and decide for yourself if the actions taken in Louisville – making them wear ankle monitor tracking devices and be placed under house arrest – is a fair and reasonable response, or is it an unacceptable encroachment on our Constitutional rights and liberties we have as American citizens. Tracking devices and house arrest is how we treat criminals, if we then extend that to non-criminals, at what point does it end? Temporary tracking devices today, permanent tracking devices tomorrow?Please decide for yourself and post your comments below.
Louisville is forcing unwilling coronavirus patients to self-isolate. Is it right?
FROM THE COURIER-JOURNAL: Issuing health-related civil orders is new territory for the courts, according to Judge Charles Cunningham, who issued two Friday. The third was issued earlier this month when a South End resident who tested positive for coronavirus refused to self-isolate.
But the orders are essential for keeping the community safe when infected patients refuse to self-quarantine, officials said during Mayor Greg Fischer’s Facebook Live briefing Tuesday. As of Tuesday, seven people have died of the virus in Jefferson County and 18 across Kentucky.
“The home incarceration program is well-suited for this,” said Amy Hess, the city’s chief of public services, which includes oversight of Metro Corrections and Emergency Services. “It provides us with the proper amount of distancing. We can monitor activity after the monitoring device gets affixed to them … to make sure they’re not further affecting the community. We would prefer not to have to do it at all,” she said.
Cunningham told The Courier Journal on Tuesday the two individuals he ordered isolated were living together, but only one had tested positive for coronavirus. The city’s health department submitted a request for the order, which indicated one of the individuals was “walking around” and the other, based on a phone call, was thought to be out of the house, Cunningham said.
A Metro Corrections officer who was sent to attach ankle monitors following Friday’s isolation order has a 101-degree fever and is being tested for COVID-19, said Tracy Dotson, spokesman for the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 77, which represents the workers. Dotson said corrections officers haven’t received the same protective equipment as LMPD officers or Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies also sent to confirmed coronavirus patients’ homes. READ MORE

When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 13,862 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 149,000 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 14,800 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
