One mayor even decided to go "Robocop" on his citizens, and threatened to send police officers armed with flamethrowers to kids' graduation parties if they refused to lock down and engage in social distancing, the Jerusalem Post reported.
Vincenzo De Luca, president of Italy's Campania region, issued a threat against citizens who refuse to follow the country's lockdown protocols.
"I'm getting news that some [people] would like to throw graduation parties," De Luca says in the video.
Perhaps in one of the more colorful public offerings, Massimiliano Presciutti, mayor of Gualdo Tadino, Perugia, blasted citizens in a profane video.
In Gualdo Tadino, citizens have reportedly been using their dogs as excuses to leave the house on an incessant basis.
