Police in Scotland entered a home and arrested a family after a neighbor snitched on them because there were “too many people inside.”
The incident happened on Wednesday night at 11:20pm in Aberdeen and a clip of the encounter has since gone viral on social media.
“My house. That is bullying. This is my house. Get out of my house. I did not ask you in here,” says the woman as she is confronted by officers in her hallway.
Particularly harrowing is that the children can be heard screaming as their parents are forcefully handcuffed.
Police Scotland later confirmed that the officers entered the home after a neighbor snitched.
“We received a complaint from a member of the public regarding a breach of coronavirus regulations at a property in Aberdeen, around 11.20pm on Wednesday, 6 January, 2021,” said a spokesman.
“Police officers are legally allowed to enter Britons’ homes if ‘that person reasonably suspects that an offence under regulation 5(1) is taking place on the premises,’ according to legislation,” reports the Daily Mail, although whether this applies under coronavirus regulations is still a subject of debate.
Three people were later charged with “assaulting officers” and “threatening and abusive behavior.”
As we have previously pointed out, the new national lockdown is virtually the same as the previous lockdown, with its primary purpose being to allow the police more draconian leeway in viciously enforcing the arbitrary rules.
As we highlighted earlier, two women were interrogated and fined by police for going on a walk in a remote area despite this not being a violation of the law.
