Crazed Lawmaker Wants People Not Wearing a Face Mask to Be Charged With Murder or Attempted Murder

Just when we thought Democrats could not come up with any more crazy ideas.
Democratic Nashville city council member Sharon Hurt is calling for people who do not wear a mask in public to be charged with murder or attempted murder.
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 another scary example of how drunk on power Democrats have gotten during the pandemic.
It was bad enough when some liberals wanted to jail people for not wearing a mask, now they are upping the ante and suggesting people should be charged with murder for daring not to wear a mask.
Thankfully, Hurt was unable to get her face mask law passed.
And she was not happy about it.
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.”
It's quite terrifying that Democrats continue to exploit the pandemic to push their draconian and dictatorial style commands.
But this is another shocking reminder of what they will do once they have power, and why November's election is so important.
