Martial Law declared in New York City

By WND

It’s the nagging fear many have about our government: what would happen if martial law was declared? New York City just found out, at least temporarily.

Eleven states as well as Washington D.C. declared states of emergency in the wake of the massive record-breaking snowstorm which blanketed the East. But New York City went a step further. Governor Andrew Cuomo declared martial law in New York City by ordering all people to stay inside under police enforcement. He issued an absolute travel ban for anything that is not an emergency vehicle.

The New York Police Department put out a blunt announcement on Saturday: “After 2:30 p.m. and you’re on the road, we will arrest you.”

As if that wasn’t direct enough, the NYPD reiterated, “”Stay off the road. We don’t want to have to arrest you.”

The NYPD emphasized the need for safety, sending out additional tweets:

  • “For your safety & ours, roads are closed in NYC except for emergency vehicles.”
  • “We are asking people to make good common sense decisions. Use your head.”
  • “Last year no one got arrested. People made the right decisions. We are looking for that again today.”

Reactions ranged from outraged to amused.

  • “Threatens arrest citizens for being on the streets 1 day due to snow. Illegals are free to roam the other 364.”
  • “Haha. Arrest away then fella’s.”
  • “Calm down chief!”
  • “Shouldn’t you help them get to their destinations safely instead of arresting them?”
  • “What if this person is trying to get home?”
  • “I get that the roads need to be clear for 911, but isn’t that a bit extreme?”
  • “You are gonna have to arrest me, and I’ll take it to court. This is appalling. I want to leave NYC!”
  • “You all drive prius’s How in the world are you going to arrest me & my 4×4 with them?”
  • “You have made NYC go full Fascist!”
  • “Russia now has more freedom than NYC!!!!!!”
  • “*** martial law over a snowstorm. I pity us when there’s an actual emergency.”
