Indian police fire tear gas on jobless workers defying coronavirus lockdown

Police in western India fired tear gas to disperse a stone-pelting crowd of migrant workers defying a three-week lockdown against the coronavirus. Many of them have been walking for days, some with families, with little access to food or water. On Sunday, about 500 workers clashed with police in the western city of Surat demanding they be allowed to go home because they had no jobs left.

Anyone who declines self quarantine, should be forcefully quarantined. By being in the streets they are endangering the lives of God knows how many. It's attempted murder.
