Mayor Bill de Blasio is asking New Yorkers to snitch on those who are not following the social distancing rules.
“New Yorkers, you have been extraordinary at social distancing,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said in a video shared on Twitter. “It has taken every fiber of our beings to figure out how to do this because we’re warm, emotional people.”

“We still know there’s some people who need to get the message,” Mayor Bill de Blasio continued. “And that means sometimes making sure the enforcement is there to educate people and make clear we’ve got to have social distancing.”
The mayor said that reporting people is now “easier than ever.”
People can report someone who is not properly social distancing or if they go to a supermarket and it is too crowded by snapping a picture and texting it to 311-692 with the location of where the picture was taken.
“Enforcement will come to get the help we need,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
Alternatively, New Yorkers can upload that picture to the 311 app as well.
“Sending that photo in is going to help make sure that people are kept apart and that’s going to stop the disease from spreading and that’s going to save lives,” the mayor added.

Your communist roots are showing. I noticed you said “enforcement” and not law enforcement. Is that because the cops in your own city hate your guts?

What New Yorkers want to know is how do we report money laundering by corrupt government officials?https://t.co/y628r3c008

I would like to report that City Hall bureaucrats are not socially distancing criminals from the general public by releasing violent criminals onto the streets.

Leave it to The Mayor of Bad Ideas to pit New Yorkers against each other. Besides, I thought you were all for overlooking minor offences🤔
