As you probably know, NY and NJ are hot-spots. as far as corona infections are concerned.

Yet, the NJ government has it all under control now.

Thousands of inmates are being released from prison. Well... makes sense...there is not much "social distancing" in prisons,... can't have that, with that virus on the loose.

at the same time, the government is strictly enforcing don't-leave-your-house rules. All non-essential businesses must close. Neither can people have large parties in their house. Anyone caught having a party, or walking the streets, may be arrested and could wind up in prison.

Makes sense also... since the criminals were all let out to roam the streets, there is plenty of room for regular citizens in prison.

oh... forgot to mention... with all those inmates on the loose, you might consider going to the shooting range to practice your aim.....sorry, can't do that either. Shooting ranges are ordered to close.

Well Gunter, all's well here in Toms River NJ cause there are no prisons near-by and with public transportation not running,well............

There is a huge Hasidic jew population nearby in Lakewood and surrounding area and their community is still going to school,congregating,having weddings etc. Just one example of how that group rubs people the wrong way.

I cant apologize for what Ive said here because its simply the truth-and facts is facts.

Yes mm,some of what you posted is what I refer to.

 There is no reason/justification there for the attitude of none compliance because of their special needs.

That causes pain for others.

I have no sympathy for that stuff.

John

Thanks for posting mm.
