The Biden regime has essentially given up on a federal response to Covid-19, deciding instead to leave it to the states. While some may be thankful that the incompetent President seems ready to give up on measures such as authoritarian vaccine mandates, Democratic states are still imposing authoritarian policies to reduce the transmission of the virus. New York has perhaps the most far reaching policies with its “Key to NYC” vaccine passport program. It requires proof of vaccination for patrons and employees of the city’s indoor dining, fitness and entertainment venues. Now, we are beginning to see how this authoritarian mandate is being enforced.
Yesterday, a video was released showing at least eight police officers surrounding a family at an Applebee’s in New York. The family was reportedly asking to leave after not showing their vaccination cards and police were called to the restaurant. A young child can be seen crying as other patrons heckle the police officers. WATCH:

“Unless you have vaccination cards, you have to exit the restaurant,” an officer could be heard saying in the video.
The child covers his face and gets up from his seat as officers continue to badger the family.
“Scaring a child. Traumatizing a child. Hope you feel good about yourself, NYPD,” one protester yells.
Four people were arrested in connection with the incident and charged with criminal trespass, according to the NYPD. The mother and child shown in the video were not arrested.
