Distancing is important and should be followed because it's the right thing to do. But... Fining people isn't the answer. ACLU is gonna be busy when all this is over.

Thin line here of violating the 1st amendment and protecting people. This is violation in my opinion. I agree that we should distance ourselves, but this is overreach
