UK Police Pour Black Dye In Lake To Try To Stop Instagramers

I’m of two minds with this. Who are they really hurting? If they’re keeping their distance, shouldn’t be a problem, right? On the other hand, these people who go out to take these social media shots are annoying. It’s all about the likes, rather than enjoying things

Coronavirus lockdown spurs police in England to dye ‘Blue Lagoon’ black to deter Instagrammers

In the age of social distancing due to the coronavirus, authorities in England have dumped black dye into a picturesque bright blue lagoon to stop Instagrammers from gathering to snap pictures.

The Derbyshire Police said Wednesday that despite instructions by officials in the U.K. to stay home to slow the spread of COVID-19, people were still congregating at a former quarry known as the “Blue Lagoon” in Harpur Hill, located near Buxton.

“No doubt this is due to the picturesque location and the lovely weather (for once!) in Buxton,” police said on Facebook. “However, the location is dangerous and this type of gathering is in contravention of the current instruction of the UK Government.”

The department shared photos of the bright blue water on Facebook, showing the moments before and after the black dye was added: “to make the water look less appealing.”

Of course, there is something else going on

While it may resemble something from a travel magazine, the water in the abandoned quarry gets its color from caustic chemicals in the quarry stone that can cause skin irritation, according to Sky News.

In addition to high PH levels, the water reportedly is very cold and has trash and dead animals in it.

Hey, if people want to make themselves Darwin Award nominees, let them. And, they’re still annoying.

Of course, the same police department is also shaming people for …checks notes…walking their pets and simply being outside while being separated from people

    That happened a couple of weeks ago when DeWidiot shut down OH.

    Glad to see people are rebelling. This is probably the best lesson in socialism the younger generations could ever get.

    Someday even small minded leftists will tire of this commie drivel.

    Laws limiting crowd size and arresting party hosts is not socialism but authoritarianism.

    President Trump declared a State of National Emergency, which gives presidents extraordinary powers. He has further granted states of emergency for several states.

    20 US states with Republican governors have declared state emergencies.

    No one is happy about the pandemic or the restrictions placed on Americans to limit the rapid spread of the virus.

    At least 11 students at Liberty University in VA are positive and have just returned to classes.

      No such system as authoritarianism.

      It is, however, in violation of the First Amendment.

      20 US states with Republican governors have declared state emergencies.

      The Whigs have not been entirely purged.

      How US states without Republican governors have declared state emergencies?

      No one is happy about the pandemic or the restrictions placed on Americans to limit the rapid spread of the virus.

      Oh, of course, you are. You love all this turmoil because you think it will end with Trump being deposed. You are, of course, foolishly wrong.

      At least 11 students at Liberty University in VA are positive and have just returned to classes.

      And this means something, why?

      Besides the fact not everybody has been buffaloed by the propaganda.

      • John says:

        11 have tested positive at liberty
        But yes we do not know the significance of that number
        We don’t know how many were tested
        Or how many remain untested
        We do know that it took about 4 weeks for the total USA death total to go from 0 to 1000
        We do know that it then took only 3 days for the death total to double and go from 1000 to 2000
        We do know that Trump issued feel good tweets for far to long
        And too many on the right dismissed the Trump virus as “fake news the Dems are spewing to hurt Trump”
        The “deep state intelligence agencies” warned Trump about this virus in Dec, but he ignored them, just like Bush ignored the warnings he was given about 9/11 and Katrina

        And you’re gonna tell me that in your whole life you never went to school or work sick? Then you’re either a hypochondriac or a liar.

        If you our I get the Red Flu it is life threatening, if my niece gets it then she has the flu or a severe cold. Then again that’s true of may diseases and viruses.

        Telling people with major conditions or over 60 to stay home is fine. Telling people who are sick to stay home is fine. Telling the pigs to wash over and over like a broken record is necessary since the schools are too busy teaching kids how to have gay sex in hygiene class so they don’t have time to teach cleanliness. Even requiring folks who go out to wear gloves and masks is reasonable. Telling America to shut down and panic like it’s the Black Death is irrational and done by “the usual suspects” for political reasons. There can be no other answer for destroying our entire economy.

        We have watched the deep state lie and the fake news media swear to their lies for almost four years but now you expect us to believe another round of “Orange Man Bad” propaganda and hysteria by the same fukin’ people?. Forget it.

  4. Nighthawk says:

    My state is one of the few that posts every day the number of people tested, the number of people who test positive and the number of deaths. For about two weeks the number of those who tested positive out of those tested has hovered between 13% and 15%. The number of deaths has stayed steady at about 2.5% of those tested. This, of course, doesn’t include the estimated 85%+ of people who are never diagnosed and show no symptoms. If these people were included, the above numbers would plummet and we can’t have that now can we?

    It was asked; “Have we gone too far yet?”. Yes, about two to three weeks ago.

    “We do know that Trump issued feel good tweets for far to long”

    What you so ignorantly call “feel good tweets” is a real leader trying to keep the people calm and rational while the fake news media does their best to whip them into a frenzy. Idiot, it’s called “leadership”.

    “And too many on the right dismissed the Trump virus as “fake news the Dems are spewing to hurt Trump””

    Nobody that I know “on the right” (and unlike you I actually know some) Dismissed the Red China Virus as fake news the Dems are spewing to hurt Trump. As usual Johnwood, you trip over the truth, dust yourself off and continue to spout fake propaganda. Many on the right, like me, said and are still saying the Red Flu is real, the media driven hysteria is meant to hurt Trump. The very fact that you STILL lie and call a Chinese born and disseminated virus “The Trump Virus” proves my point. Yopu’re ALL fukin’ liars out to hurt Trump and if you harm America and kill Americans to do it well, that’s just the price you’re willing to pay.

    “The “deep state intelligence agencies” warned Trump about this virus in Dec, but he ignored them,”

    Another lie Johnwood. the deep state intelligence “warned” nobldy. They “informed” Trump of a possible virus loose in CHINA like they do anything of import in the daily briefing. He and his advisers kept their eye on it and when he stopped flights from CHINA where the virus began you leftist pigs called him a racist and xenophobe in a NY minute!!! How then do you recincile that with “Ignoring” anything, idiot.

    “…just like Bush ignored the warnings he was given about 9/11 and Katrina”

    Again, Bush was told of a sharp increase in communication chatter, not that anyone was attacking the WTC. You realize that occurs more often then you’d like, right? You also realize that has Clinton killed Osama Bin Laden when he WAS ACTUALLY TOLD we wouldn’t be having this discussion. Secondly, Bush was told about Katrina in real time with the rest of us. In case you didn’t know the weather is not a state secret. But according to protocol the local authorities respond first to emergencies (which the DEMOCRAT authorities failed to do) then the state authorities (which the Democrat run state in a fit of either ignorance or fear didn’t do (1000 school buses left to rot remember?)) then the feds come in with FEMA etc. But you once again jumped on the fake Media inspired frenzy to “blame Bush” for shit the Dems did. Liars, you are all liars.
