One protester: “As a black man I feel like I’m being pushed to the side and I don’t count unless I jump through the hoops of what the government tells me to do, and they are demanding that they invade my body autonomy.”
NYPD has had quite a month thanks to NYC’s stupid vaccine mandates. Bill de Blasio forced private businesses to require people, including children, to have the COVID vaccine.
On December 15, officers surrounded the mom and child while telling them they have to leave because they do not have vaccine cards.
A protest happened at the same time in the Applebee’s. I do not know if the mom brought the child to the protest or it’s just a coincidence. The police arrested four people and charged them with criminal trespass.
What a lovely new world we are living in when you go out for a meal and a squad of police barge in, persecute a little boy then demand to see everyone else’s papers. This is the vax passport world so many are begging for. #NotAboutAVirus #NOVAXPASSPORTS pic.twitter.com/ZQFnybs4ly

From The New York Post:
“Unless you have vaccination cards, you have to exit the restaurant,” an officer could be heard saying in the video.
The child appears upset and covers his face as the officers attempt to defuse the situation.
Others in the restaurant heckle the NYPD officers as they ask the group to leave.
“Scaring a child. Traumatizing a child. Hope you feel good about yourself, NYPD,” one protester yells.
An officer then addresses the entire group of protesters.
“If you leave voluntarily, you will not have charges pressed against you. Otherwise, you will be arrested for trespass. This will be your only warning,” he says in the video.
A black man compared it to the Civil Rights Movement:
Another protestor, who is African American, likened the demonstrations to sit-ins carried out by Martin Luther King and other civil rights activists in the 1960s who were protesting lunch counter segregation.
“It’s the same thing, it’s segregation all over again,” he said on a video posted online.
“As a black man I feel like I’m being pushed to the side and I don’t count unless I jump through the hoops of what the government tells me to do, and they are demanding that they invade my body autonomy.”
“This is not what America is about… we have had enough and we will stand up for our freedom before we lose it all.”
On Monday, police arrested five people at a Burger King, including Mitchell Bosch. Other officers arrested him twice this month at protests against the mandate, including the Applebee’s protest mentioned above.
