Mitchell, SD has it’s fair share of Village idiots

I’m sure you may have seen this video. There are many things difficult to understand here, but than I remember this happened in Mitchell, SD.

First off, if someone asks you to wear a mask, just do it. It’s not political, and no one is stealing your civil liberties. It is obvious this doofus showed up to the meeting to cause trouble because he wasn’t going to wear a mask.

But secondly, whether you agree with his stance or not, police CANNOT enforce a school ‘mandate’. A mandate is NOT  law, it’s a firm suggestion. Not to mention, this occurred in a public building that this person owns. The officers did do something right, they didn’t arrest the fellar, because if they would have, he could have sued their butts off.

Besides the failings of this gentleman trying to prove how much he supports Trump or mask ignorance in general, and the blatant disregard of law by the police officers, remember, wearing masks is good (indoors) and don’t infringe on your civil rights, and if you are NOT breaking the law, you don’t have to listen to the police. There always seems to be this belief that you must let officers detain you because they are officers. But if they can’t tell you what law you are breaking, they can’t arrest you. Mr. Mitchell Doofus wasn’t breaking any laws, just the law of common sense. And if that is against the law, they need to arrest a lot of people.

i bet the mitchell idiot is also the first to say “if he did what the police told him to do, he wouldn’t be dead.”

These people who refuse to wear masks, will they now start showing-up at all restaurants without shoes and shirts, too? If so, will Hooters’ stock rise or fall as a result?

So, you’re seriously asserting that if a student is expelled fom school – they don’t have to leave? Or if a teacher ius fired – he/she doesn’t have to leave? Or if some jackass is throwing popcorn (or a frozen dead Jackrabbit) on a gym floor during a basketball – the school cannot have them removed??

The mask thing has become stubborn resistance. Ignorance looks for embarrassment. Wear your mask and turn around releasing gas. Then, they’ll wish they wore a mask.

I remember when people wore masks for a robbery or starring in a porn VID. Now Democrats wear them when Republicans are present.

That’s why masks are blue and not red. I’m Indy. Do they have purple?

We can all argue the merits of Mask vs No Mask etc. I think the larger issue here is the fact the cops showed up to a Public School board meeting to kick a guy out. This was a POLICY NOT LAW and this should really scare people. I don’t care what the guy had to say, how he said it. I could care less if he was rude or disrespectful, etc but, we should be concerned the Police removed someone for violating a policy at a school Schools are PUBLICALLY funded and public property and he has every right to show up and he is not breaking any laws.

I have heard that he is a frequent critic and has showed up many times to criticize the board. I believe this is the true reason they wanted him removed. There is also a case out in Rapid where another school board sent a cease and desist letter for someone going after them. Now I dont know the ins and outs of that but, this sounds like these school boards are getting a little big for their britches

The policy exists because a law exists, which allows a policy to be enforced by the board and any law enforcement authority (local) the board chooses.

VSG – What Law exists in this state that requires you to wear a mask in a public building? I am going to be flippant here so bear with me. If the School has a “policy” to not chew gum yet someone does and refuses to spit it out, can the policy be called to have the offender removed? Last time I checked this was public property and this was an open session. I have yet to see any law on the books in relation to enforcing masks via Law. The only thing I am trying to point out is we need to be careful what we start justifying in order to get people to do what WE want them to do.
