NY Business Owners Kick Out Health Dept, Sheriffs: ‘Civil Disobedience Starts Now’ (Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It became apparent on Friday night that some business owners in Buffalo, New York, have had enough of the arbitrary coronavirus-related restrictions handed down by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo that are killing their establishments and hurting their employees.

Gathered inside Athletes Unleashed gym in Orchard Park, a number of business owners refused to comply when a health department official and the Erie County Sheriff’s Department entered their facility. The business owners, who taped the interaction, told the health dept. official and the sheriffs to “go get a warrant” and leave their “private property.” 

And, to cheers from the business owners, the authorities complied, leaving the gym and the front of the business, video shows.

According to reporting from WBEN, there were about 100 business owners meeting together before they were reported by an anonymous person for exceeding the Cuomo-edict of no more than 10-person gatherings.

At the beginning of the video, one of the men calmly tells the government officials that unlike them, their income does not come from the taxpayer and that they must stay open in order to live.

“I’ve seen clients die because they’ve lost their livelihood,” the man pleads. “I’m asking for [you guys] to have some compassion for the people that have lost everything.”

“We do have compassion for people who’ve lost everything,” the female health dept. officials responds.

“Go get a warrant,” another business owner interjects firmly, “This is private property. … This is private property, [they’re] not wanted here.”

“Do your jobs,” he tells the sheriffs, adding, “Your job is to remove people who are not wanted here.”

“You should all be wearing masks; how come you don’t have masks on?” one of the sheriffs asks. “Don’t worry about my health,” the business owner responds, “My health isn’t your concern.”

“It’s a government mandate,” the sheriff insists. “It’s the law.”

The business owners tell the sheriff it’s “not the law.” The statewide mask mandate is an executive order from Gov. Cuomo and never passed through the legislature.

“You have to leave,” the business owners repeats, “You guys have to leave.” Another man tells them, “You guys need to leave because right now, you’re trespassing without a warrant; you need to leave.”

“[Mass] civil disobedience starts now,” someone else shouts.

“You don’t get to violate the Constitution,” the officials are told. “You don’t circumvent or subvert the Constitution.”

Chants of “Get out” and “We will not comply” erupted from the business owners as the health dept. worker and the sheriffs were ushered off the property.
