Texas Judge Urges Residents to ‘Snitch’ on Those Violating Stay at Home Orders

Houston-area Judge Lina Hidalgo set up a link at which residents can report on people or businesses they believe are in violation of current stay-at-home orders. texas stay at home

“See a restaurant at full capacity? Businesses open that shouldn’t be?” she tweeted. “Help us save lives.”

She urged constituents to report on anyone in violation of Governor Greg Abbott’s order by following a link that allows them to anonymously rat out fellow Texans.

Backlash

As you might imagine, a ‘snitch line’ isn’t exactly popular in Texas or any of the other United States, and Hidalgo was quickly ratioed and mocked on Twitter, while the online form had to be relocated due to technical issues possibly resulting from an influx of fake reports.

“Let the public ultimately decide what is safe and what restaurant is at full capacity. This gestapo approach to governance is frightening,” one person responded.

Another suggested inundating the form with inappropriate images, similar to what happened with New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Hidalgo announced a stay-at-home order of her own on Saturday, stating any “Non-essential Harris County businesses and others that were not ‘reopened’ by the Governor’s order need to stay closed through May 20th.”

It is a major move for the third-largest county in the largest city in Texas.

Failed presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke naturally praised Hidalgo’s “leadership,” stating her actions have been “really exciting” to see.

 

‘Idiotic’

In April, Hidalgo made failure to wear a mask in public a punishable offense, with anyone found in violation subject to a $1,000 fine.

The Houston Police Officer’s Union slammed her over the “idiotic” and “unconstitutional” order, agreeing that wearing a mask is a wise decision but not something that should be mandated by officials.

It would appear she doubled down on the ‘idiotic’ and ‘unconstitutional’ parts with this snitch form.
