Miami Police Setting Up ‘Mask Traps,’ Issuing $100 Fines to People Wearing Masks Improperly

Women System – July 28, 2020

It’s been less than two weeks since Miami-Dade County announced it would be fining people for not wearing masks in public. Already, Florida media outlets are filled with stories of people cited for wearing masks improperly, lowering masks to sip a drink, or removing their face coverings once outside of a store.

On Thursday, the Miami Herald reported that the Miami-Dade Police Department has issued 162 citations for violating the county’s mandatory mask ordinance, which comes with a $100 penalty.

One woman, Johanna Gianni, says she removed her mask in the parking lot of a Publix grocery store in North Miami Beach, when a police officer approached her and wrote her a ticket for not wearing a mask. Gianni told the Herald the parking lot was nearly empty and that she felt set up by police.

She’s not the only one.

The ABC affiliate Local10 reports that Dean Gonzalez was fined while leaving a North Miami Beach Publix because his mask didn’t cover his nose. The encounter was captured on video; in it, an officer can be heard telling Gonzalez that improper mask usage is as bad as not wearing a mask at all. Gonzalez accused the cops of setting up a “mask trap” and said that they threatened him with arrest if he didn’t sign the ticket he was issued.

The Herald article includes several other examples of people being fined while wearing masks, including a customer at a barber shop who lowered his mask to take a sip of water right as a police officer entered the business.

NBC Miami reports that Miami-Dade police conduct 500 random compliance checks each day to enforce the county’s public health ordinance.

The Herald also identified one Wawa convenience store where eight people were cited over two days for not wearing masks, suggesting that police are indeed setting up “mask traps.”

Mask mandates have proliferated across the United States as a way of combating the spread of COVID-19. Police are often empowered to enforce these rules through fines and even arrests. Enforcement varies between jurisdictions, however, with some communities aiming for voluntary compliance.

Miami-Dade County appears to be among the most aggressive enforcers of its mask mandate. The Mercury News reports that in San Francisco, another large city with a mask mandate, police have issued 26 citations for violating that city’s emergency health order.

One could make a libertarian case for government mask mandates during a pandemic, on the grounds that no one has an inherent right to cough deadly pathogens on another person. But that theoretical case has to be weighed against the reality of policing in America, where cops frequently resort to petty and overaggressive enforcement.

To judge from these reports in Miami, the pandemic has done little to change how such officers go about enforcing the law.

  1. Miami Vice!

  2. According to Mark Windows of Windows of the World, he states that nowhere in regime legislation does it state that wearing of masks is a legal requirement and the regime is relying on consenting sheeple and shaming to coerce sheeple to wear a face mask. £100 fine?

  3. My local london cycle shop used to sell chemtrail masks
    i see exactly the same is now being sold for corona

  4. Miami has the 3rd highest percentage of Jews among major US cities. Jew York City and Lost Angeles are the #1 and #2 spots. Zionist evil controls police the most in the places most infested with jews.

  5. Miami is one of the most Jewish infested cities on the planet, and Jews control the cops and courts, and these Jews, mostly from Jew York City, hate the Goyim.

    Anyway they can control the Goy and take their money. If you can’t see that it is the Jews f-cking with you every which way to Sunday then good luck.

    As the Gentiles learn about Jews the Jews are in great fear of a major retribution. I am surprised that not every school kid in Dade County doesn’t have to take a mandatory Holocaust Museum tour and annual test.

    You better wear that corona slave mask correctly Goyim, or Sheriff Israel is going to get you!

  6. South Florida could be considered “little Israel”. But not just Florida, the entire West has been inundated by jewish psyche that needs to be replaced with traditional New Testament teaching. While organized Christianity was busy playing “Church”, the enemies of Christ Jesus where busy spinning their web of deception and intrigue. It is high time to call out these culprits.

  7. Suppressed Swiss study proves there are no justified reason for any of the restrictive measures including masks.

  8. Glad I have no need to be anywhere near Miami. Fun em and feed em fish heads

  9. The problem with US is their authoritarian ruling on the Public, it stems from a mixed Communist and Nazi power handling. The authorities are People that was not got much
    knowledge on Facts about the viruses, they are just executors of these Orwellian Laws.
    These Authorities should be apprehended on streets and pulled up on a tree and skinned alive like back in Hungary in 1956 when the AVOs where controlling Hungarians. They got caught and they payed the price for assassinating civilians. USA, what a ‘Shit hole’, don’t know Right from Wrong, just Money.
