Some Michiganders are losing their shit for being told to wear face masks at stores to prevent the s

A Roseville woman is accused of assaulting an employee at a Nino Salvaggio market in Saint Clair Shores after being asked to leave for not wearing a face mask. When police arrived, she resisted arrest and spit at them.

This incident is one of several in Michigan in which store employees have been attacked — and in one case, killed — for enforcing face mask policies.

A 2017 Roseville mayoral candidate, Kristin Hoff, 33, entered the store on April 26 and was asked to leave because she wasn't wearing a face mask. After allegedly assaulting a store employee, police were called. Hoff continued to “behave erratically” and resisted arrest, attacking the officers and even spitting at them, at which point she was arrested.

The incident came just two days after Gov. Gretchen Whitmer extended Michigan's coronavirus stay at home order and issued the requirement that all individuals wear a mask when in an enclosed space, like grocery stores and pharmacies. Whitmer also said that those establishments reserve the right to refuse service to anyone not wearing a mask.

1. The stores won't get into trouble

if they just say they looked gay. Religious rights are protected by the Publican Party.

2. I hope that these people are charged w/ assault. Spitting at someone constitutes an assault (...

HIV, CV, etc. via saliva). The stores should also adopt a policy of never allowing such confrontational people into their stores.

This is one big reason why retail workers on the front lines do not like being classified as 'essential' workers, and why I don't want retail workers to be exposed to such ignorant idiots.

If you going to classify people as 'essential' then give them more protection, such as if assaulted etc., then the charges can be bumped up to a more serious level (a felony vs. not a felony).

3. To them a mask is like wearing a blue armband with a D on it.

4. The good people of Roseville can be proud of the fact ...

... that they didn't elect this idiot to be their mayor.
