Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida allowed for a limited reopening of the state’s beaches on Friday, allowing the areas to be used for several specified activities.
Citizens who patronize the beaches will be required to practice social distancing, and gatherings of crowds greater than 50 people are still prohibited.
Mayor Lenny Curry announced Friday that beaches in Duval County will be accessible to the public from 6 to 11AM and 5 to 8PM. The beaches can only be used for walking, biking, hiking, fishing, running, swimming, taking care of pets and surfing.
Imagery of Jacksonville’s beaches showed them to be relatively crowded, suggesting that Floridians tired of being cooped up in self-isolation are itching to hit the state’s beaches.
Today, Florida set a record of new coronavirus cases: 1,413 in the last 24 hours.
Florida’s total cases is now 24,753.

In Volusia County, lifeguards have given more than 1,000 warnings to people for taking part in what are deemed to be non-essential activities on the beaches.
The governor has justified the reopening of beaches in a news conference Friday, arguing that the state’s citizens need venues to exercise and leave their homes without a high risk of spreading the disease. Data has emerged suggesting that the disease is far less likely to spread outside than it is inside buildings.
Providing reasonable and regulated means for Americans to engage in everyday activities may prove essential towards encouraging the general public to avoid hazardous activities where the virus could be spread.
Minneapolis City Government Urges for Victims to Submit to Criminals as They Defund the Police
This is what anarcho-tyranny looks like.
The city of Minneapolis is urging citizens to submit to criminals and comply with their requests as they get ready to defund the police.
A directive issued by the city gave residents “robbery prevention tips” that include handing over purses, wallets and cell phones to criminals. The memo essentially suggests total submission to robbers as a way to stay safe.

Minneapolis has turned into a hellscape following the death of serial felon drug addict George Floyd during a police encounter, which has sparked race riots there and across the country.
Big League Politics has reported on how Minneapolis is moving to defund the police during a time when crime and lawlessness are spiraling out of control:
The Minneapolis City Council has formally adopted a resolution pledging to replace the city’s police department with a “transformative model of public safety” on Friday. All 13 members of the city council voted for the symbolic resolution, passing it unanimously.
Left-wing city council member Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Democratic Attorney General Keith Ellison, originally proposed defunding the city’s police department last week, as widespread riots and looting engulfed the city in the wake of the death of George Floyd. The rest of the City Council was quick to follow him in endorsing the vague proposal.
Friday’s vote didn’t lay out a concrete plan to replace the city’s police department, instead broadly pledging to implement an alternative that’s yet to be fully imagined. The Council is planning to spend one year in a dialogue “with every willing community member in Minneapolis” to discern the structure of a new community-based model of public safety.
The city’s establishment Democrat mayor continues to oppose a wholesale abolition of the Minneapolis Police Department, but nine votes of the city council is sufficient to veto any attempt he would make to prevent the proposal. Mayor Jacob Frey was viciously booed away from a meeting of Black Lives Matter protestors after refusing to endorse the defunding of the police last week.
Minneapolis incurred more than $55 million in damages from the widespread race riots that engulfed the city in late May, and the city government is already hoping that the federal government will provide a generous bailout to mitigate the costs of the damages. Some of the businesses pillaged by rioters and looters in the chaos have announced that they don’t plan on returning, citing the utter disregard for their safety on the part of city government.
Nearly 20% of Minneapolis real estate listings have been placed for sale in the past seven days, as the city’s upper and middle class recognize that the once affluent city is increasingly slated to become the next Detroit or Chicago.
The city of Minneapolis has become a stunning example of failed liberal leadership. If liberalism is not defeated, this is what the entire nation will look like before long.
