Kentucky orders some COVID-19 patients to wear ankle bracelets

May 11, 2020

  We have seen some downright scary stories out there about tracking American citizens in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic as authoritarian governors begin to flex their muscles while the people just lie supinely on their backs and take it.

  Most of the stories revolve around cellphone tracking but New York is talking about creating a “tracing army” of thousands of people and New Jersey is already using drones to enforce social conditioning distancing.

  Now Kentucky, which just lost a court decision on banning in-person church services, is getting in on the act. According to this story some COVID-19 patients are being forced to wear ankle bracelets as if they are common criminals. Here is more:

Kentucky is taking severe measures to ensure residents exposed to the coronavirus stay at home. Louisville residents who have been in contact with coronavirus patients but refuse to isolate themselves are being made to wear ankle bracelets.

Jefferson Circuit Court Judge Angela Bisig ordered the Department of Corrections to fit D.L. with a global positioning device for the next 14 days. If D.L. leaves the house again, he or she could be criminally charged, WDRB reports.

D.L. is not the only Louisville resident ordered to wear ankle monitors to contain the spread of the coronavirus. According to WDRB, there are three other known cases so far. Two other people who live in the same home — one who has tested positive, and the other who has not — were ordered to remain in their home last week after both refused to stay isolated.

And another man was put under house arrest after he went out shopping despite having tested positive for the coronavirus, according to WDRB.

  This is getting out of control, the states are pushing us to see how much we are willing to take and by and large the American people are failing this test. It is time to say enough is enough because this is only the beginning, the more the American people take the more they are going to push the limits.

    They keep pushing the envelope and seeing how far they can take it…. registering church members ranks right up there as almost as bad as government intrustion.

      I haven’t heard about registering church members! That is insane and they are just pushing the envelope, we are failing this test big time. At some point the people have to say enough is enough!

    Hopefully they’ll be weaving basket soon at the GITMO RESORT … if all goes well! Better them go down than us!
    I’m changing up the saying “Give me Liberty … to “Well have our Liberty & they can have what’s ‘left over’!”
