On Tuesday night, a group of about 50 anti-mandate activists refused to show proof of COVID-19 inoculation and staged a sit-in at the Queens Center Mall food court.
After having dinner in the food court, the activists went to the mall’s Cheesecake Factory for dessert and drinks to continue the sit-in.
The activists were denied service by the Cheesecake Factory staff for not showing proof of COVID-19 inoculation.
While the activists continued their sit-in to peacefully protest the blatant discrimination, the staff called the police and requested the activists be removed from the property.
Cheesecake Factory informed the police officers they intended to press charges against the activists for criminal trespassing if they refused to leave.
It’s important to note that while Cheesecake Factory is a privately-owned business, it’s a public accommodation business that provides services to the public.
You’re not committing criminal trespassing by attempting to patronize or use the business’s services in good faith during hours of operation.
NYPD from the 110th precinct gave the activists a choice, leave the property or be placed under arrest.
Now, this would be an unlawful arrest since the activists were attempting to patronize in good faith during open hours.
In this case, trying to buy cheesecake.
Activists requested to file a police report, accusing Cheesecake Factory of discrimination.
As you’ll see in this Instagram video, the police officers appear uneasy about filing the report for discrimination.
Fast forward to the 1:03:00 mark for the moments leading to the arrest.
This clip from @newyorkfreedomrally2 shows a higher-ranking NYPD officer visibly frustrated when confronted about the definition of criminal trespassing.
Notice how he’s in violation of New York’s mask mandate, yet decides to enforce the illegal COVID-19 jab mandate on law-abiding citizens.
The NYPD unit made the decision to violate the law and enforce illegal policies.
Here’s a shorter clip of the unlawful arrest of 5 adult activists.
The arrest sparked outrage amongst anti-mandate activists due to NYPD’s enforcement of the illegal COVID-19 jab mandate.
Following the arrest, around 50 to 100 activists went to the 110th precinct to demand their release.
As of this writing (2:35 a.m. E.S.T.), activists remain outside the 110th precinct in Queens.
The activists are still attempting to file a police report to document the discrimination at Cheesecake Factory.
It’s a shame that New York City has become a society of discrimination and segregation by medical status.
This is a developing story.
