Florida Sheriff Forbids Employees And Visitors To Wear Face Masks Because Of The "Hatred Towards Law Enforcement"

Stop me when any of this makes any sense whatsoever... 

USA TODAY – As the city of Ocala wrestles with an ordinance requiring face coverings for people inside businesses, Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods told his employees they will not wear masks at work, and visitors to his office can’t wear masks either.

So not only is Sheriff Woods not requiring his law enforcement staff member to wear face masks when dealing with the public, but he's actually forbidding it???! AND any visitor that steps into his office to report a crime or whatever will be forced to remove their face mask or they'll be asked to leave?!

Lolllll. I just don't know man. Are some people just complete and total morons out to flex their muscles, regardless of the consequences? Or are we the one's living in the Twilight Zone and foolishly buying into the "mounting evidence that face coverings properly used are among the best methods to reduce the spread of the coronavirus" and walking around hot and uncomfortable?  

Woods said with 900 employees, "our number of cases so far has proven that the current way we are approaching the issue is working."

Damn. Well, if his approach is working… maybe it is us??? 

Marion County set a single-day record on Tuesday for the most deaths related to COVID-19, with 13 more deaths reported.

Then again, maybe not. 

But why? Why would someone pass such a strict and, not just unnecessary, but dangerous law during a time when we should all be doing what we can to minimize this virus so we can get our lives back? 

He added, "in light of the current events when it comes to the sentiment and/or hatred toward law enforcement in our country today, this is being done to ensure there is clear communication and for identification purposes of any individual walking into a lobby."

Ohhh it's so people will hate law enforcement officials less

Forget protecting people from getting a deadly virus, let's not wear masks so they can hear us clearly and we can see them clearly so they'll stop hating us! It doesn't matter if the issue with law enforcement is based on how certain officers view certain people without face masks - this is the answer to those sentiments! I mean, sure maybe they'll hate us when we accidentally kill them from COVID-19, but at least they won't ask us to speak a little louder while we're wearing a face mask that barely minimizes communication!

Well done, Sheriff Woods. That's one hell of a way to spin the narrative.
