Published

on

On April 7, 2020, Miami Beach is ordering employees and customers to wear some form of covering over their mouths and noses when they enter grocery stores, pharmacies, and restaurants in the city.

The city tacked on this mandate to the Emergency Order it unveiled on April 3.

This new order also applies to people doing food and drugstore deliveries.

Some of the coverings people could use are face masks or homemade masks. Scarfs, bandanas, and handkerchief can work. However, these covering methods cannot replace social distancing and should be used in tandem with the practice. .

The order stated: “As to all other essential retail and commercial establishments permitted to remain open, employees and customers are strongly encouraged to wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth. All establishments are strongly encouraged to implement policies for employees to use other personal protective equipment, such as gloves, subject to the availability of such items.

The city has also changed its “Safer at Home” Emergency Order through April 9, 2020.

On April 3, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “recommended” that Americans use cloth face masks in public venues where social distancing is difficult to do, such as grocery stores and pharmacies.

The CDC based its recommendations on results generated in recent studies that demonstrate the Wuhan Virus can spread among people that are in close proximity to each other even if they don’t manifest symptoms.

Cities across the nation are starting to wake up to the realities of the Wuhan Virus.

Tough decisions have to be made in times of a generalized crisis.

However, prudence is necessary when discussing these matters.

While some states and municipalities attempt to infringe on certain rights such as gun rights, others have taken more sensible public health measures to contain the virus.

Portland Experiences Over a 100% Increase in Shootings After Anti-Gun Violence Police Force is Disbanded

Published

on

In July of 2020, the city of Portland experienced 15 homicides.

According to Portland police, this is the most killings the city has experienced in one month in over three decades.

So far in 2020, 24 people have died due to homicides in Portland.

Oregon Live reported that the most recent killing took place on July 28, 2020 when a 34-year-old woman was stabbed at a Northeast Portland home after coming back from a vigil mourning the death of 27-year-old Tyrell Penney, who was murdered in a shooting on July 29.

In July 2020, there have been 63 shootings, while there was 28 in July 2019 per a Police Bureau report.

Although homicides, assaults, burglaries and vandalism have increased this year compared to 2019, total person-to-person and property crimes have plummeted compared to previous years, according to the bureau’s report.

Police Chief Chuck Lovell said on July 30 that he’s very worried about the uptick in violence and is shifting officers from patrol units to the detective division in order to shore up follow-up investigations.

He also explained that the bureau had to cut its Gun Violence Reduction Team in accordance to new policy changes the City Council ushered in. The team, which counted on 34 members, was disbanded on July 1 in response to budget cuts to police units that have allegedly targeted a disproportionate number of blacks during routine traffic stops.

Like many cities in the country, Portland is starting to embrace leftist radicalism on matters of law enforcement by considering moves to defund the police.

Oregon is already one of the more anti-gun states in the country, so lawful individuals in Portland don’t have many options at their disposal for self-defense. With police being gutted, regular citizens have even fewer options at their disposal for security.

This has obviously not registered with political elites and represents why many Americans will likely leave cities in masse in search of jurisdictions that actually bother to provide basic law enforcement infrastructure.
