NYPD raids store operating legally under Cuomo order

EXECUTIVE ORDER 202.6

"Any business that only has a single occupant/employee (i.e. gas station) has been deemed exempt and need not submit a request to be designated as an essential business."


From Fox News.

On April 18, Besshtanko said a number of officers approached her door asking to come in. Besshtanko said her door was locked and the officers failed to present a warrant. “They just started aggressively knocking on my door and I wasn't sure what happened, so I opened the door," she said, "They told me that I had to let them in, and I did. The officer did not present a warrant.”

During the encounter, Besshtanko said the officers searched her store and asked to go into her basement all without telling her what they were looking for. "They just went through every bag, they looked at every shelf of my showcase, they checked little bottles just to see what's in them, but they never actually said, we are looking for such and such, they were just looking. The only time they asked for my permission was to go to the basement, they also asked if there [were] any boxes from China. That [sounded] funny to me, but obviously I had none. They went downstairs to check for it, came back with no results. And that was that,” Besshtanko told Fox News.

“The police are not only coming to these shops one or two times, but it's a pattern. Meaning, they're coming in the morning, in the afternoon, in the evening. And they're making remarks again about importing products from overseas, particularly Asian countries and that is unnecessary. I’m not sure what they're trying to accomplish by doing that. No one has presented a search warrant or any order from a judge to confiscate anything. There's no customs investigation. There's nothing that would lead to this sort of behavior. So it seems to me like these are frustrated officers who are essentially taking out their frustrations on retail shop owners," Spodek told Fox News.


I don't vape, but I may just have to support this woman's business in some way.

Cuomo cannot rid himself of his fascist Italian heritage therefor he sent his violent goons to bust up every day citizens lives

So the cops are keeping tabs on law abiding store owners, but not keeping tabs on violent criminals and sex offenders released due to Covid fears. That about sums up NY right now.

If you still can't see how this entire lockdown bullshit is just a flimsy pretext to shred the Bill of Rights and install a police state, you're a fool and deserve to live in a dictatorship.

The government does not care about your health. They care about power and control

New York is no longer America. Rights and liberty do not apply. This is the new normal.

Were they looking for bootleg vape cartridges, the ones that were reported to cause severe lung damage last year, due to the inclusion of Vitamin E that was not intended to be inhaled?

Are they using the social distancing guidelines as a cover to enter businesses without warrants?

Don't trust any attorney who says you just have to “... cooperate and comply” with the police. They love to bully, you don't have to let them in in all situations.

That being said, vaping is hooking another generation on nicotine that might not have otherwise started smoking. So no sympathy.

Why did she let them in if they didn't have a warrant? It's on her now.

It's not a surprise that NYPD would be one of the first Gestapo netework's in America. NYC has trampled every Constitutional Right for decades, but New Yorker's not only take it, but they like it. That's why they keep electing Nazi's to office.

The re-education camps for the tax paying violators of the executice commands from the supreme leader, aka Mario, the Older Bother, will meet social distancing and facemask requirements. The re-education will be provided remotely.

That's right up there with "if we don't teach teens to use condoms properly, they might not have sex".
