Nashville Councilwoman Demands Law Charging Non-Mask Wearers With “Murder”

Apparently, a complete an utter lack of knowledge or common sense is present within this councilwoman because her comments are both idiotic and ignorant.

The ignorance is astounding. (Source: YouTube screenshot)

Despite empirical medical studies that have been conducted over the last 15 years (before the COVID scheme) showing that masks are completely and wholly ineffective for preventing the transmission of viral respiratory illnesses, a councilwoman in Nashville is demanding that people who don’t wear them be charged with “murder.”

Of course, there’s also the fact that 99.8 percent of people have NO problem recovering from COVID-19 AND there’s a cure in hydroxychloroquine… but those pesky truths won’t get in the way of the inflammatory (and it appears desperate bid for attention) fear mongering carried out by Sharon Hurt.

The Blaze reported:

Sharon Hurt, an at-large member of the Nashville Metro Council, suggested this week that people who do not wear a face mask, but spread coronavirus, should be hit with attempted murder or murder charges.

During an August 5 meeting between the city’s Public Safety, Beer & Regulated Beverages and Health, Hospitals, & Social Services committees, Hurt asked whether the council could enact legislation criminally charging people who don’t wear face coverings in a similar fashion HIV-positive people who knowingly spread HIV without informing partners.

She said:

“My question goes back to legislation. I don’t know if Mike Jameson could be the one to answer the question, but my concern is — you know I work for an organization, that if they pass a virus, then they are tried for murder or attempted murder, if they are not told … and 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.

“It seems to me that we have been more reactive, as opposed to proactive, and a little too late, too little. So, my thing is, maybe there should be legislation, stronger legislation, I don’t know if Mike Jameson is… can speak to it, but 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.”

[Some quick difference here: HIV IS deadly… and there is no cure, while COVID CAN be cured and has been. HIV transmission requires intimate contact and a level of trust not required in basic societal interaction. The number of cases of COVID, compared to H1N1, is infinitesimal, and there is no need for these outrageous restrictions, many experts argue. And, there are the medical studies showing that masks don;t even impact the transmission of this type of respiratory virus.]

Mike Jameson, director of legislative affairs and senior adviser to Nashville Mayor John Cooper (D), responded by informing Hurt that the city council does not have the legal authority to create criminal statutes.

“[T]he council does not have the opportunity on its own to create criminal legislation, that is a state creature. We’re warranted by state law, to apply criminal application to violations, just for example, as the state law allows us to apply a Class E misdemeanor to violate a health director violation,” Jameson explained. “But, in terms of creating a new code, or class of criminal offenses, that is a creature of state law.”

In response, Hurt said she “was afraid that was going to be the answer.”
