Chief Capri said despite the various incidents, authorities “never lost control” of the area and were able to disperse crowds as they popped up.
“I know people were scared and I know people were upset about the numbers of crowds there,” he said. “We don’t take this lightly especially with the crowds gathering together right now as we got the coronavirus still going around and people not practicing social distancing. But I’m not the social distancing police — that’s not my job.”
Under what conditions is it the responsibility of the police to enforce social distancing?
