IN the history of state brutality in Northern Ireland, it won't go down as even a minor incident.
ara Flanagan, a mum from Enniskillen, complained to the media after police officers "dressed like spacemen" arrived at her home last Tuesday night.
They'd received reports that her teenage son Aidan, who had recently returned from a holiday in Ibiza with friends, had been to the pub when he was meant to be self-isolating.
Tara said her family "felt victimised" by the incident.
"I went to the window and all I saw was basically a man in what I could describe as a spacesuit. It was like something out of Nasa," she added.
"There was nothing to indicate he was a police officer. He was waving something at me and the next thing he's banging on the door really loudly.
"I was traumatised by the way they turned up. It took me a good hour to settle myself afterwards."
The reports about her 19-year-old son were false. While one of his friends wasn't self-isolating, Aidan was. He hadn't been to the pub. He had only left the house for a Covid-19 test, which was positive.
The PSNI were still 100% right to pursue their course of action. An allegation that someone who could have Covid-19 is breaching regulations must be swiftly and robustly investigated.
If police received reports of a drunk driver careering down the road, they wouldn't pussyfoot around. Someone with coronavirus mixing with others would be just as dangerous as getting behind the wheel when intoxicated.
The officers were wearing masks, gloves and personal protective equipment because this is a killer virus.
The spacers aren't police in hazmat suits but the reckless, self-centred cretins who put the lives of older or more vulnerable people at risk.
Being wrongly accused of any offence is an unpleasant experience, but the PSNI did nothing wrong in chasing this up.
A man who broke coronavirus travel rules last week by socialising in Enniskillen became the second person in Northern Ireland to receive a £1,000 fine for such a breach. He later tested positive for the virus.
The Covid conspiracy theorists claim we're on the brink of becoming a police state through our response to the disease. On the contrary, flagrant flouting of the guidelines is ignored by the PSNI.
There are pubs in Belfast that should be shut immediately for their breaches.
The irresponsible idiots visiting these licensed premises, and those who serve them, would do well to listen to Yvonne Stewart, whose father, John Fleming, died of coronavirus in Craigavon Area Hospital.
The 79-year-old was being treated for bone cancer, but his prognosis was good. He tested positive just before his release from hospital.
When we hear of the elderly or vulnerable dying from coronavirus, we too often dismiss it as inevitable.
There was nothing inevitable about John's death. Despite the cancer, he was told he could survive for 10 years.
Yvonne told the BBC how her father was terrified after the Covid diagnosis and told her, "I didn't bargain for this. I don't want to die. I'm afraid of dying".
"He fought really strong and hard. He gave everything," she said.
"To watch him not being able to breathe, and his whole body moving to try to breathe and trying to fight for breath, was shocking."
Those not wearing masks on buses, those not distancing in pubs, those serving them and those not following quarantine rules need to wise up.
They may catch Covid and it may be mild, but they could pass it onto someone who won't be so lucky.
Breaching public health regulations doesn't make you a fearless rebel. It makes you a potential killer.
