Last week: Hats off to U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr for standing up for the rights of Americans against government overreach and siding with citizens suing local governments for stepping on their Constitutional rights! Government has a compelling interest in protecting the public’s health in the fight against the virus. But, is the cure worse than the disease when it can trample basic constitutional rights? Two examples: New York Mayor De Blasio asking people to snitch on anyone not following social distancing orders and Elizabeth New Jersey using drones to enforce such rules. Government must operate with restraint—not excess!
