They sound concerned for public safety, but some of us know better.
Beantown & Commonwealth of Mass. officials "suggest" that people stay in their homes & not congregate in public. How long before this becomes an emergency ordinance, possibly w/ a curfew? Not long after that any group of three or more people will be called an "illegal assembly" & the forces of repression will be given carte blanche to deal w/ "potential rioters" as they see fit. And most of the people will go right along w/ it. That's why they're called sheep.
