#3 Did they test the test to eliminate a false positive?

#4 False positives are the reason people are allowed to self-quarantine.

#6 Technically this isn't 'self quarantine'.

#7 They refused to sign after testing positive and not saying they were going anyway after given this result.

#8 ^If you test positive, you go into quarantine. It's like a breathalyzer test: you test positive, you don't get into your car and drive away.

Tell it to Mary Mallon.

#12 Hysterical much?
Posted by Frank G 2020-07-20 16:35||   2020-07-20 16:35|| Front Page Top

#13 Something being glossed over here is that the reason the local authorities came down on these people the way they did was the couple in question refused to sign some papers. Now, I also understand they made some unfortunate noise about some planned trip they didn't want to postpone, but the story the authorities tell is if they just signed the papers and agreed to what was in the papers they signed things would not have come to this pass. Is that accurate? Who can know? I see pretty much the same thing that Children and Youth Services is notorious for, to wit, throwing their weight around because they can. These people need to be under home monitoring while the jails are being emptied "because COVID." It doesn't wash, pass the smell test, fly or any of those other catchy phrases for being "on the up and up."

#14 Hysterical much?

Now that's a good, well reasoned response, to my argument.

#15 I think they became "notorious" through Media Hysteria which evidently reaches overseas. A 30% Sketchy test is no reason to deny Citizens' rights.

#17 Under what laws were they placed under house arrist? Was there a trial?

Seems they can just cut the illegal ankle bracelets off and they still would not violate any legal laws!

#18 Self-isolation implies own recognizance.

If the weight of law can come down, what is that due process? Can the results be viewed or challenged? I'm going to go out on a limb here and considering their behavior they were not tested voluntarily.

How is this house arrest order served? Papers presented at the residence? Phone call? From Courthouse, Police, some testing agency?

Is it a fine, or better yet a tax?

#19 Grom, they did not refuse to self-isolate, they refused to sign a contract to do so. They actually said they would self-isolate but not by forced contract.

#20 #19 Yea, well, I'm sorry for her - but actions have consequences. Actually, IMO, she & hubby are better of with ankle bracelets - no way that pair would not break any contract they've signed.

#21 Can I suggest foreign opinions are of little concern among American citizens with a US Constitution? Just saying...
Posted by Frank G 2020-07-20 17:45||   2020-07-20 17:45|| Front Page Top

#22 Well, half our judges are more interested in foreign law / opinions / customs / reactions / etc. than they are in the Constitution, so there is that to consider.

#23 Whether you give a damn about those opinions or not is up to you. They will be voiced whatever you may think about them.

#24 as it should be

#25 OK, so they voluntarily get tested to be safe for grandma.

Do not agree to travel restrictions in case they have an emergency and need to get somewhere, such as the ER.

Health Department and Sheriff show up with ankle monitors and if they travel Law Enforcement is notified.

So these people were doing everything adult, and got hammered for it. Notify law enforcement, is the Health Department sharing personal health information with other entities. My ass would be in a sling named HIPAA.

Plan to get an attorney; I bet attorneys are planning on getting them.
