"The fact that these people hid from officers clearly shows they knew they were breaching the rules and have now been fined for their actions."

You mind rephrasing that so you don't sound like a complete authoritarian asshole?  You're enforcing a quarantine, not ferreting out thoughtcrime.

Ain't that a shame.  Were I to play,  I'm walkin' all the way to blueberry hill to avoid detection.  Otherwise, you can count on a blue monday.

They weren't fined for thinking about doing it, though.

They were fined for doing it.

The fact that they were hiding is proof that they knew it was against the law and destroys any defence against the contrary.

I appreciate you know this, but I don't think he said anything other than this.

If you set up enough dominoes, then you can surf them as they fall down.

And what are you going to do if they refuse? You've got an enforcement paradox.

This is what I hate most about this damned pandemic: tabletop gaming has basically been put on indefinite hold.  It's one of the few reasons an introverted nerd like me has to get out and socialize.

Idiots.  All it takes is for one of them to get sick and the rest will fall like, well, you know.

Fark these people. They knew the rules, flouted them anyway, got caught and were punished accordingly. And it's not an isolated case. For example, there are morons forming queues and blocking roads trying to get into national parks (the Brecon Beacons for example), then biatching and moaning when they're told to leave and go home.
