    Is there a fine involved if the police show up?
    If so I will become a bounty hunter because I can make a lot of money every day by just cruising through Lowe’s or Walmart.

    Yes, call the city police to get in the middle of busy bodies and idiots. Looting and burning is A,okay but we will haul you away because you don’t have you mask on your nose!

    I say we should have the FREEDOM to cough on others and spread a virus that can kill because this is America and it’s MY RIGHT! And police should only arrest people if they protest peacefully!! We need to respect our law officers, unless they ask us to help stop a virus, then we can ignore or resist them!

    I don’t suggest wearing face masks or pass an emergency ordinance mandating masks be worn in public. Many resident have no AC at home and suggesting people resident or not to wear it as by ordinance or suggestion is not a good idea. A vaccine is soon coming out as evident that the US Government will treat those sick with COVID19 by the time as the priority to be vaccinated and a few million homeless. These face mask suggestions or edicts are not a good idea. Now for those who live without AC and then go outside to wear it under threat of fine is dumb and stupid. The Air is not contaminated. So the Government no matter what level should stop scaring people.

    Only in America do we complain over convenience versus wearing a mask.
