Brickbat: It’s in the Jeans

The police department mentioned the encounter in a tweet detailing some of the actions it has taken to make sure that people are not violating coronavirus restrictions by leaving their homes for nonessential reasons. Walking or jogging for exercise is considered an essential reason for leaving one’s home. But cops apparently considered it bad form to do so while wearing jeans.
