Nashville councilwoman wants attempted murder charges for people who don’t wear face mask, pass on COVID-19

Washington Examiner – by Emma Colton

A Nashville, Tennessee, councilwoman wants those who don’t wear face masks during the coronavirus pandemic to be charged with attempted murder.

Sharon Hurt, an at-large councilwoman of the Nashville Metro Council, joined an Aug. 5 meeting between Public Safety, Beer & Regulated Beverages and Health, Hospitals, & Social Services committees.

“My question goes back to legislation,” she said during the meeting. “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,” she added.

Director of legislative affairs for the mayor’s office, Mike Jameson, responded by saying that the city council doesn’t have the authority to create criminal legislation.

“The 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 said. “But, in terms of creating a new code, or class of criminal offenses, that is a creature of state law.”

“I was afraid that was going to be the answer,” Hurt responded. “I guess that’s the whole point of asking for something to be done as early as the Council was pushing. It seems it was not taken as seriously as it should have been and thus we are in the situation we are in right now.”

Hurt’s comments come as some states push for stronger mask mandates, including in Indiana, where Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb signed a mask-wearing mandate at the end of July. Hundreds of protesters gathered outside Indiana’s Statehouse in Indianapolis over the weekend to denounce the face mask requirement.

So far, in the United States, there have been 5 million confirmed cases of the coronavirus and 162,455 deaths, according to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center.

    1. She’s obviously another Marxist, Stasi maggot who salivates at the thought of her true power, the next guy after her was the scary one, with the stars and bars military costume saying, Officers at their discretion can decide to escalate an encounter with a slave for willfully violating the “Mask Ordinance”. (At gun point mind you).

      Wonder what the true founders would have done, if there was a caveat written with the bill of rights, that said local Governments will have the Authority to Override This entire bill of rights with Ordinances, Statutes and Civil Codes.

      Cause that was never possible under our bill of rights supreme law, yet it is the rule of the day in every-town USA…. evidenced by that cops statements and existence.

      Mthrfkrs want war I guess.

      Galen, thanks for the Video Place mark, that helped a bunch… 🙂

      1. You’re welcome, Norm. And what I’ve noticed about such types is that they absolutely believe they are on the right side. Proof that the programming and brainwashing of the last few decades has succeeded on those who do not think for themselves.

  1. These bolsheviks need to be taken out very swiftly after making threatening, murderous, anti-human statements like this in public! She is obviously extremely mentally ill & a MAJOR physical threat to every sane person living in her vicinity & beyond! People like this need to be seen as the rabid dogs they are & instantly dealt with in the same fashion as they are VERY dangerous to the greater population of humanity. We are now realistically coming down to an us or them scenario as this kind of complete insanity is allowed to fester!

  2. Wow! They really are going all out over a stupid face mask.

    Attempted murder? Can we get some sane and rational people back in this world!

    What next? Manslaughter for walking around barefoot or wearing sandals in public?

    Unfrigginbelievable….

  3. WHY ISNT HE WEARING A MASK? NO DAMN AUTHORITY WHATSOEVER , WHATS NEXT, POLICE START GUNNING DOWN PEOPLE ON THE SPOT IN COLD BLOOD FOR SIMPLY NOT WEARING A MASK, THIS IS GENOCIDE, THIS IS A CRIME, IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE WAGING WAR AGINST US.

  4. This is an example of dumbing down of the public through the school systems……..the reason……. dumber people are easier to control. These morons can’t figure out correct change but they are somehow in public office, tell me again that voting it legit and not controlled by TPTB!
