Police around the country are asking police to self quarantine for a while until the coronavirus subsides

Salt Lake City, UT - Police departments from around the country are asking criminals to take part in “social distancing” from their crimes until the coronavirus pandemic subsides.

From Kentucky to Utah and Colorado to Washington, police are asking criminals to come together and put their crimes under quarantine.

The Powell County Sheriff’s Office in Kentucky posted on Facebook on March 12: “Due to the coronavirus, the Sheriff's department is asking that all criminal activities stop until further notice. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation in the matter. We will update you when we deem it’s appropriate to proceed with yo bad selves”

That post was shared 17,000 times within five days.

The Logan County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado wrote on Facebook: “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and its contagious nature, the Logan County Sheriff's Office is asking all criminal activities/nefarious conduct to cease until further notice. We appreciate your anticipated cooperation in halting crime and thank criminals in advance. We will update you when you can return to your normal criminal behavior.”

The sheriff’s office ended their post with the hashtag “#behaveyourself”.

The Puyallup Police Department in Washington made a similar request to criminals on Facebook.

“Due to local cases of #COVID-19, PPD is asking all criminal activities and nefarious behavior to cease,” the Puyallup police wrote. “We appreciate your anticipated cooperation in halting crime & thank all the criminals in advance. We will certainly let you know when you can resume your normal criminal behavior. Until then.... #washyourhands & #behaveyourself”.

And the Salt Lake City police in Utah also joined in the trend.

“Due to the confirmed case of #COVIDー19 from community spread, SLCPD is asking all criminal activities/nefarious behavior to cease until further notice. We appreciate your anticipated cooperation in halting crime & thank criminals in advance. #SocialDistancingNow #behaveyourself,” the department posted on March 14.

I believe that the Criminals will self quarantine and cease their bad behavior once they've been injected with a little lead.

Stress is real getting to some officers. Next they will tell them to turn themselves in after they commit a crime. This has got to be a JOKE.

With 211 soft targets closing down and marijuana dispensaries still operating one would think that a savvy armed robber would change target preferences.
