Location Types

Location types include:

Bar, restaurant, or venue 
Barber, salon, tattoo, or personal care 
Office building 
Public space or gathering 
Park or playground 
Social Distancing Restrictions

These are things that should obviously be reported, so FF.

Depends.

You don't want to waste tax dollars calling 911 on a random person---isn't that profiling?

If you watch someone breaking the law, you report it.
That being said, families are different and I wouldn’t report a parent and a child/a few siblings/a couple. If it’s a group of teens (who are obviously not related) or a gathering, you report that.

If it's obviously a couple or something, then I'm not reporting that.

It's a necessary move, to be honest. People who don't practice social distancing place those at risk, who are social distancing, so it may sound bad, but it's ultimately a necessity.

Yes, why shouldn’t I report black people breaking the law?
Was this just one of your many failed attempts to own the libs?

Depends on each individual situation. In case there are very large gatherings, I'd do it. If just a small group, probably not.

Rule of thumb: if you have to ask whether you need to call the cops for something, don't.

But I went with the moderate hero option.  Calling cops on businesses not enforcing social distancing makes more sense than calling cops on a small group of people at the park or something.

perhaps you're too young to remember, but a few years ago we had issues with black people and cops, maybe Covid 19 made that a non-issue?

attempt?  I know you read the Libertarian Bad Thread, though I notice you were smart enough to not say anything in it.

I never have advocated for police to not enforce the law in my lifetime. Not during the 2014-2016 period and certainly not now. We can argue whether police are disproportionately targeting minorities and if its justified, but that isn’t the same as telling bystanders to not report crimes.

You can't even tell if someone is "social distancing" by looking at them. Are they with people? Maybe they live with them. Are they sick? Maybe they've got allergies. Are they going out during the day? I dunno, maybe the need groceries, you numbskull. Doing this would require way too many assumptions on the part of the observer. You can't possibly know for sure, so maybe shut up about it. If you do this crap, you'd probably call the cops on kids selling lemonade.

Seems like a waste of valuable police resources to me.

No. And people who do are losers and jerks. It's a shame the identity of tipline snitches isn't purposefully public ... if I had a store I would deny service to all these snitches.

If anything, Boomers are the ones calling the police because they saw their neighbor go for a walk without a mask.
