"The data scientist fired for refusing to ‘manipulate’ Florida’s Covid figures filmed her home being raided by state police who seized her computer equipment.

Rebekah Jones posted the shocking footage on Twitter and claimed that Florida governor Ron DeSantis had “sent the gestapo” for her.

Ms Jones, who created Florida’s Covid-19 portal, has claimed she was fired from her job because she refused a request to censor data to support the state’s plan to re-open.

Jones said that armed police raided her home on Monday morning and showed her a warrant based on a complaint from the Florida Department of Health. "

"“There will be no update today. At 8:30 am this morning, state police came into my house and took all my hardware and tech,” she tweeted.

“They were serving a warrant on my computer after DOH filed a complaint. They pointed a gun in my face. They pointed guns at my kids."

Do you think policemen ever look at themselves and wonder if they are the bad guys?

She claims she was asked to censor. She was also doing research out of her home afterwards. If she was interested in creating bias against the reopen she would claim that she was asked to censor.

Did she make any claims to what the real numbers showed? Was there really some deep state hidden truth that she was uncovering?

Is she like that Florida lady that said she invented the fidget spinners?

State security interests are serious though.

See Snowden or Assange.

That’s going to get a SWAT team. Or in Assange or Snowden’s case probably a life sentence.

There is an allegation that she may have hacked into the state computer system. She may have done more than just uncover some fudging of the numbers...

"“I watched the video when she tweeted it out right after the incident happened, and I just couldn’t believe what I was seeing,” Filipkowski said, later adding, “I saw what was happening and I couldn’t believe it. Then I read the search warrant, and I’m a criminal lawyer, and I couldn’t believe what I was seeing in the search warrant about how broad it was, about what they were alleging as a supposed crime.”"

This is The Atlantic’s score for Florida’s data quality.

Governor DeSantis said: “She’s not a data scientist. She’s somebody that’s got a degree in journalism, communication, and geography. She is not involved in collating any data, she does not have the expertise to do that, she is not an epidemiologist. She is not the chief architect of our web portal, that is another false statement… She was putting data on the portal which the scientists didn’t believe was valid data. So she didn’t listen to the people who were her superiors…and so she was dismissed because of that and because of a bunch of different reasons…”
