It's Florida Man Friday on Hard Factor News and today's story comes from right outside the Governor's mansion in Tallahassee, Florida.
28-year-old Jordan Mazurek, staged a protest outside the home of Gov. Ron DeSantis, early last Friday, where he encased his arms inside two 55 gallon drums filled with concrete. He was demanding the governor release prisoners who were eligible for at-home confinement, first, and eventually all the prisoners after that. This is a popularly protested issue during the pandemic, as prisons have become hotbeds for coronavirus contractions.
Mazurek, who was initially acting alone, had the words 'STOP THE MASSACRE' and 'RELEASE THE PRISONERS NOW' written on the front of the drums and used some sort of locking mechanism to keep his arms in place to avoid having them ripped out of their sockets.
Mazurek is the co-creator of a group called “Campaign to Fight Toxic Prisons,” based out of Florida, who rushed their name choice in my opinion, and do nothing but perform annoying stunts like this, and single-handedly attribute to the continued spread of the virus. Mazurek was first seen outside the Governor's mansion around 6 AM and wasn't removed until after 10 AM. Because of the peaceful nature of his protest and how small it was, Mazurek was simply cited for blocking the road and later released.
A spokesperson for the group gave a comment to the local paper that read,
“This was an escalation to show some people in power that we are serious,” … “Our end goal is that everyone in prison should be released. But it should start with the most vulnerable.”
You want EVERYONE released? Are you dumb?
I had to check multiple sources to make sure she wasn't misquoted, and sure as shit, that's the real thing!
If the spread is so vast in prisons, shouldn't we contain that shit, not release it? I'm no expert though.
On the bright side, with moronic protests like this one and more taking place every day, it's only a matter of time before natural selection takes its' course.
The best part is, if the ole dumb-dumbs turned on a TV once in a while, they'd know that Governor DeSantis was in Ft. Lauderdale at the time of the protest, where he's conducted Coronavirus News conferences during the pandemic.
