Parishioners of Kentucky churches received dozens of notifications of forced isolation for the next 14 days
For Kentucky Christians, their own safety and state laws mean nothing, so dozens of parishioners have ignored the Gov. Andy Beshear's decree on the ban on mass gatherings during the Easter holidays.
The decree said that all citizens whose license plates would be recorded by the local police would be required to spend the next two weeks without ability to leave their homes.
The state authorities did not plan mass arrests, it was only a deterrence to deter believing Americans from spreading the coronavirus. As expected, dozens of people either did not believe that it was possible to die from COVID-19, or did not believe that the Kentucky government would be able to implement its plan, but they did.
As a result, about 50 people received notifications. Among the violators there were also tricks that removed license plates or made them unreadable, in this case, police officers wrote down the VIN number and found the owners from the police database.
According to police reports, notifications were received only by malicious violators of the order who got out of the cars and gather in groups of more than 10 people. There were those who did not get out of their cars, but only listened to services through the car speakers - they didn't receive notifications.
As it turned out, not only the authorities wanted parishioners to use alternative methods of church services, unknown people scattered nails in the parking lot of Maryville Baptist Church in the city of Hillview.
