Dad handcuffed and led away by cops in front of 6-year-old daughter for violating social distancing

Matt Mooney told KDVR-TV he was playing tee ball with his 6-year-old daughter and his wife at Donelson Park in Brighton, Colorado, on Sunday afternoon when three police officers showed up to inform him that he was violating social distancing guidelines put in place to slow the coronavirus spread.

The 33-year-old added to the station that he refused to provide his identification to the officers because he was certain he wasn’t breaking any laws.

‘Daddy, I don’t want you to get arrested’

His daughter, however, wasn’t so sure.

“She’s like, ‘Daddy, I don’t want you to get arrested,'” Mooney recalled to KDVR. “At this point I’m thinking, ‘There’s no way they’re going to arrest me, this is insane.’ I’m telling her, ‘Don’t worry, Daddy’s not going to get arrested. I’ve done nothing wrong. Don’t worry about it,’ and then they arrest me.”

He told the station the officers handcuffed him right there in front of his daughter.

    Colorado-stan. Not surprising as the state has been turning leftist as the refugees flee their paradise on the coast.

    Cops have in many case have become, or are in the process of becoming the enemy of the people. Perhaps it’s time to treat them as such. I will guarantee you that when that day does come, the system doesn’t have enough cops and will quickly have none.

    A little common sense tells you that it doesn’t matter if a family, that is going to live together, is out playing ball. They’re not spreading any infection beyond what they would already have among themselves, but then we’re talking about cops, not common sense.

    Those cops should be fined and given some community service, like picking up trash in ditches.
    I get it that it can be a thankless job, but between the three of them, not one could make the right call.

    An Armed society is a polite society. I conduct myself accordingly, and I’m inherently polite anyway, and always armed.
    I want More Armed Patriots around me at all times in public!!! It is a Citizen’s Duty to be armed for their own and the Public Good.
