Bellmawr, NJ Gym Openly Defies Fascist Governor Phil Murphy's Illegal Lockdown; Police Show Up, But Just Issue Warnings

The police seem to know that they're being used as illegal thugs by power-hungry creeps.

A gym in southern New Jersey has reopened for business in defiance of a state order that shut down nonessential businesses to help stem the spread of the coronavirus.

...

Around 10:30 a.m. Bellmawr police officers approached the door through the crowd to speak with the gym's owners. The officers informed them that they were "formally" in violation of the shutdown order.

...

"Formally, you are all in violation of the executive order. On that note, have a good day. Everybody be safe," the officer said before walking away as the crowd erupted in cheers.

An attorney representing the gym tells FOX 29's Alex George that they later received a summons for disorderly conduct from Camden County police. New Jersey State Police say the patrons inside the gym were issued warnings.

The owners have said the decision to resume operations at the members-only facility was not about financial gain, but rather a question of Constitutional rights. They also say they plan on opening up again on Tuesday.

They owner of the gym had previously appeared on Tucker Carlson, vowing that he would defy an unconstitutional edict.

"We think so far, this has been just a gross violation of constitutional rights," Smith added. "The 14th Amendment states that no state shall pass any law that infringes upon our rights as citizens, and we’ve been forced into our homes. Enough is enough.

"We got to the point where I’ve watched many businesses around me collapse, I’ve watched people lose their jobs and there’s no progress moving forward."

Below, a video of a crowd gathered to support the gym's reopening, and the cops retreating after issuing a pro-forma "formal" announcement that the crowd is in defiance of Phil Murphy's decrees.
