This has gone too far, folks. We are now living in some sort of authoritarian health regime, and the nation at large appears to be simply sitting back and observing this ridiculous downward spiral.
COVID-19 and the pandemic that it caused have been routinely used by authorities to exert their will over we the people, and every day seems to have provided a new opportunity to these cretinous officials.
This week, we may have crossed a line, however, as a high school student has now been arrested over her choice to not wear a mask in school.
Grace Smith, a junior at Laramie High School, told state Sen. Anthony Bouchard, R-Cheyenne, in an interview posted online, that police placed her in handcuffs for trespassing after she was suspended for not following the school’s mask mandate and refused to leave school grounds.
Smith recorded video of herself getting handcuffed, which her father, Andy Smith, shared on social media. The video shows the interactions between Smith and police officers were polite.
The video has caused quite a stir online.
The whole ordeal was messy, and reeked of tyrannical power trips.
“When asked if they’re arresting her for [not wearing] her mask, they’ll say, ‘No, we’re arresting her for her violation of failure to comply in accordance with their trespassing ordinance,’” Andy Smith told Bouchard.
Smith said that she’s faced three separate two-day suspensions over refusing to mask up and received $1,000 in trespassing fines for refusing to leave the campus, saying that she had a right to be on school grounds to continue her education.
The ridiculous ordeal illustrates just how far the nation has removed itself from common sense, and just how invincible those in power have begun to feel.
