Like wolves and global warming, the COVID-19 virus has become a political issue.
Yesterday in Meridian Sara Brady, 40, was arrested for trespassing after refusing to leave a playground area of Kleiner Park where she accompanied her children. Police asked the woman to leave the area for health reasons, but she refused in an apparent act of civil disobedience.
Upon her arrest she urged witnesses to “call the Idaho Freedom Foundation.” The group is involved in promoting protest events about the coronavirus lock down.
Sara was in friendly surroundings. Her husband, Tim Brady, is a Boise copper. Officers radioed for Tim and he picked up the children.
Meanwhile, here is an excerpt of an ordinance passed Monday by the Caldwell city council:
Park playgrounds are also closed in Boise.
