A crazed Nashville city council member, Sharon Hurt, insanely wants people not wearing a covid-19 face mask to be charged with murder or attempted murder.
Via the Tennessee Star:
Metro Nashville At-Large Council Member Sharon Hurt said Wednesday during a virtual meeting of the Joint Public Safety and Health Committee that there should be stronger legislation for those not wearing masks and suggested they be charged with murder or attempted murder.
Hurt said that she works for an organization that, “If they pass the virus, then they are tried for murder or attempted murder.”
Hurt thinks the same standard should apply to the general public.
“This person who may very well pass this virus that’s out in the air because they’re not wearing a mask is basically doing the same thing to someone who contracts it and dies from it,” she said.
“Maybe there needs to be stronger legislation to say that if you do not wear a mask, and you subject exposure of this virus to someone else then there will be some stronger penalty as it is in other viruses that are exposed,” the council member added.
This is quite literally insane and shows how drunk on their “emergency” powers so many Democrat lawmakers have become.
Democrats want to keep people in fear, and in masks, until at least after the election so they can push their mail in voter fraud scheme and keep Joe Biden locked in his basement.
The good news here is that Ms. Hurt was unable to get her draconian face mask law passed, as wiser heads prevailed. That said Ms. Hurt was quite upset about her defeat:
Hurt had to be reminded by Metro Nashville’s Director of Legislative Affairs Mike Jameson, who also participated in the virtual meeting, whose jurisdiction it is to create a new code or class of criminal offenses.
“The Council does not have the opportunity on its own to create criminal legislation,” he said. “In terms of creating a new code or class of criminal offenses, that is a creature of state law.”
Hurt expressed her disappointment, “I was afraid that was going to be the answer.”
I’m certain Ms. Hurt was disappointed that she couldn’t ram her face mask rule through and force the residents of Nashville to comply with her draconian and dictatorial style edicts.
Democrats love to have control of, and over, as many people as they can and nothing matters to them except defeating Donald Trump and gaining absolute control of our country’s residents.
Most, if not all, Democrats need to be kept as far away from the halls of power as humanely possible. They screw up and destroy almost everything they touch.
Watch the whole sordid city meeting. The segment highlighting Nashville city council member Sharon Hurt’s insane desire to hit non face mask wearing residents with an attempted murder charge begins at the 1:01:40 mark.
