An older woman filmed herself being kicked out of a Boise, ID Sushi shop a few days ago, and the views are starting to rack up on YouTube. Pam Hemphill and a friend of hers as well just wanted a cool refreshing beverage from a place called Dharma Sushi.
They both say they have medical conditions that prevent them from wearing masks. The employee told them to leave though, and when Pam confronted her about not accommodating her due to her condition, the front desk person with a ‘Black Lives Matter’ mask on became extremely defensive and said that there were no exceptions and that everyone had to wear a mask. This, of course, doesn’t apply to people sitting down and eating just a few feet away.
Many of the customers inside took the side of the employee, one young woman flicked Pam off and called her a ‘dumb bitch’ despite no provocation. Although Pam and her friend didn’t stay inside the store long, it looks like police were called.
Throughout the video, the Boise PD appeared to be fair and listened to what people had to say while attempting to de-escalate the dramatic turn of events that ensued from what appears to be two senior citizens who simply wanted a cool drink as they were spending time in the downtown metro area. It’s unclear exactly what happened before the video starting recording, but it doesn’t seem like Pam or her friend were rude to anyone and it doesn’t seem like it was warranted for the rudeness from customers and an employee.
Watch the clip below and decide for yourself if this was fair:
Everyone has their own views on masks, and we can all agree that everything should be done to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Being rude to our fellow senior citizens is probably not the best route though. Have a little mercy folks.
Stores have historically had the right to refuse service to anyone, although we’ve seen double standards showing that the left is not actually ok with that either, such as bakers who don’t want to bake cakes for certain groups of people. They say it’s discrimination, so you would think it would also be discrimination if someone says they have a medical issue to not serve them or require them to prove it somehow. There is a mask mandate in Boise, but there are exemptions as shown here and highlighted below:
i. Children under the age of five (5).
ii. Persons who cannot medically tolerate wearing a face covering. A person is not required to provide documentation demonstrating that the person cannot medically tolerate wearing a face covering.
iii. Persons who are hearing impaired, or communicating with a person who is hearing impaired, where the ability to see the mouth is essential for communication.
iv. Persons, including on-duty first responders, for whom wearing a face covering would create a risk to the person related to their work, as determined by local, state, or federal regulators or workplace safety
v. Persons who are obtaining a service involving the nose, face, or head for which temporary removal of the face covering is necessary to perform the service. Persons who are eating or drinking at a restaurant or other establishment that offers food or beverage service, so long as the person is able to maintain a distance of 6 feet away from persons who are not members of the same household or party as the person.
vi. Outdoor public places where people can employ social distancing as recommended by CDC.
vii. Indoor recreational facilities (i.e., gyms and fitness facilities) where people can employ social distancing as recommended by the CDC.
