Council Member Wants People Not Wearing a Mask to Be Charged

We have been reminded of many things during the “pandemic”. For some, the actions of our politicians may be their first deep look into the power we give to those on election night.

In addition, those elected by the people, then go on to hire and nominate non-elected government workers, such as judges on the Supreme Court.

I ran across a Twitter post featuring a short video, of a Nashville Council Member, whose emotionalism pushes her to ask for the unthinkable. She proposed for those who don’t wear a mask to be charged with murder or attempted murder, is a prosecutor can prove that someone died as a result of CV-19 and the accused gave it to them.

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.”

She then pushed for the same standard should apply to the general healthy public just living their everyday lives. “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

Hurt’s suggestion comes as the Nashville-Davidson County COVID-19 dashboard indicates a recent decline in new daily cases of COVID-19 and a fatality rate of 0.9 percent.

With regard to mask enforcement, Hurt was critical of the actions to date.

“It seems to me that we have been more reactive as opposed to proactive and a little too late, too little,” Hurt said.

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 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 guess that’s the whole point of asking for something to be done as early as the Council was pushing,” she added.  “It seems it was not taken as seriously as it should have been and thus we are in the situation we are in right now.”

With checks and balances still in place, this hyper-activist is controlled and limited in influence on the council.

As a more Marxist graduate from our education system, and are trained to submit to the goals of the collective, others like Ms. Hurt might someday control the councils, courts, and legislatures. If so our Constitution will be our last stand unless they have become the majority and have modified it too through amendments.

It’s time to pull our children and grandchildren out of public schools, freeing them from the brainwashing of “Big Brother’s” master plan of tyranny.
