BELLMAWR, NJ – Fox29 news coverage today captured the sparks of a revolution in New Jersey today as a police officer dispatched to the Atilis Gym in Bellmawr. As the officers approached the front door to confront the owner, everyone expected the worst but were shocked at what happened next. The crowd chanted, “Police stand down” as they waited for the owners of the gym to answer the door at his business, which in the eyes of Governor Phil Murphy is operating illegally.
Then the officer delivered his message.
“We have come to advise you that you’re in violation of an executive order,” the officer told the owners. “We are and were always here for everyone’s safety. We planned for the worst and hoped for the best and that’s what we have here today. Formally you are all in violation of the executive order. On that note, have a good day, everybody be safe.”
The officers then left the business and returned to the parking lot to ensure the safety and order of the protest.
