Uniformed and armed German police operatives have been filmed in a viral video displaying their strictness by using measuring sticks to determine whether people at a protest against Covid-19 vaccine mandates are following social-distancing rules.
One version of the video garnered over 1.8 million views as it made the rounds on social media on Sunday. While the source of the footage is unclear, it was supposedly shot at a demonstration on Saturday in Frankfurt and showed police walking through a crowd, using folding rulers to check whether people were standing at least 1.5 meters apart.
About 500 people participated in the protest, according to protestors organisers although the media said the figure was just 25 activists. The state agents were reportedly satisfied that the event, while unauthorised, was peaceful. However, people watching police using their measuring sticks were heard on the video jeering and making derisive comments to the officers.
The reaction on social media was similar, with some observers noting that police violated the distancing rule themselves by moving close to protesters to take their measurements. Others likened the crackdown to the early days of Allied oppression following Germany’s defeat in May 1945.
‘Germany is going full police state, measuring distances between people on the street with a yardstick,’ one commenter said. ’How will we ever be able to explain to our children that we let this happen?’
The incident may mark the first high-profile use of social-distancing sticks by German authorities, but police have made no secret of their measuring tool. In fact, Frankfurt police proudly touted their Covid-19 sticks in a Twitter post last week, saying they would be used to ’consistently’ verify compliance with Germany’s social-distancing edict.
