Mask Police

BulgarBlogger

Dear Mask Police (random concerned citizens in NYC coming up to strangers and demanding they wear face masks):


Please pay attention to the conjunctions “AND” and “OR” in the below highlighted text. These conjunctions separate the conditions that must be met either together (and) or separately “or”. So when one is not wearing a face mask it is probably because they think they can (or have been) social distancing...

You are not the police, so shut your pie holes and keep walking...

One person's "leave me alone" is another person's "I get to say what I want in public."

The problem is that person X (me) is walking down the street w/ no one on the sidewalk near them, so they pull their mask down.  But then a family comes around the corner.  Or someone's grandma comes out of the coffee place as I'm walking by the entry.  Or I just forget for a minute that my mask isn't on when the sidewalk becomes more crowded.  There are just too many instances where "I'm social distancing" goes out the window.  Luckily, my mom raised me not be be an a-hole, so I quickly just started leaving my mask on.  It seems like literally the least I can do.

Yeah- but, you are not a law-enforcement officer or a judge.

yes, the cops in NYC are pretty much over it from what I can tell. The homeless take it even up a level, they start shouting and spitting if you don't walk around the correct way. I've been wearing my mask 24/7 when out and I always let the home owner dictate the mask wearing. I tell them it's for their protection. Some care, some don't. But its not hard to keep the mask on all the time.

That’s why people need to keep a safe distance! Can’t force people to wear a mask apparently, although you can, but you can keep a safe distance from people, especially from people you see not wearing their mask!

It is quite ironic if people get in your face for not wearing a mask, don’t they know that’s how they can get COVID?

Also! There’s plenty of shedding in shit.

Yeah, this isn't tough. If there's a chance you'll be within 6 feet, wear a mask. I don't always have one when I'm out on walks with my dog, but I also don't live in NYC. It's really easy for me to cross or just move into the street to avoid getting within 6 feet. If someone took issue with that, I'd say "sorry" and put on the mask that I carry with me. Not that hard to be a member of a respectful society.

this is best time to just punch someone in the face with no consequences. cops don't give a shit because the public has turned against them.

It is very easy to distance in supposedly busy areas...stay inside! Also, people managed for decades to avoid homeless people on the streets like they carried the plague, this isn’t very different. And another thing, people say Manhattan is deserted, offices empty, people fleeing to the burbs, not that busy perhaps as people want to believe. Just wear a mask, what do you lose by wearing one and what do you gain by not wearing one?

If you think not wearing a mask is bad, look up ‘plume’ from an uncovered toilet flush

Cops in NY are going to start handing out $50 fines to anyone not wearing a mask on the subway. It was said that tickets and fines are being handed out b/c not enough ppl are abiding by the requirement of wearing them (or wearing them properly) and the MTA wants to make riders feel safe.

All i have to say about that is --- ITS ABOUT TIME.... 

If they are willing to hand out tickets in the park (they did this at the beginning of the pandemic) then they should definitely do it for the subway where it's actually enclosed.

Some folks, they come in all types of political stripes, love to tell others they are doing things wrong and they like to assert their views on others. This is true of mask wearing or religion or other things people feel righteous about and believe others should do for the greater good (think mask wearing, not parking in front of fire hydrants, picking up your pet's poo or littering.  It must get annoying dealing with the mask evangelist but they are probably doing it as a means of regaining some control over their now deeply disrupted lives.

Over and OUT

Peter, it’s your or other people’s refusal to wear a mask and consider other people by clinging on to their so-called freedom that has this pandemic continue, drag on and make unnecessary victims...traffic lights are also so annoying by asserting their will on people forcing them to hit the brakes at times, how dare those freedom-hating lights, so unAmerican (or however you’d call it) if people want to smash their cars into upcoming traffic it is their god-given right(!)

somehow masks have now obtain hat status in the US. IT'S FUCKING APPAREL, GET OVER IT AND ACCORDINGLY IF YOU GET OVER IT, WEAR IT. replace hat with mask... (point of bit, its nonsense to make it political, religious, anything but fucking wearing a mask.)

and if you're not following my logic. if the science isn't clear yet, as science evolves and is not a set of ideologies (make believe shit), but science based on past science suggests wearing a masks helps prevent the spread, then if you're not a jihady fundamentalist who is open to evolving science and science of the past you will abandon your religious and political ideologies for something that will eventually be proven or not by people who prove shit - scientists.

randomised, I do wear a mask when out and about when it is appropriate and necessary to do so. I don't get too bothered by the mask police because I have more important things to worry about. The problem we have is mask wearing is political and tied up in virtue signalling where stoplights and other things are not. Policing the mask wearing is not convincing people to wear mask, it is unfortunately having the opposite effect. We might actually get more compliance with a low key less confrontational means of asking then going from zero to 11 every time someone has their nose and or mouth uncovered. It is the thing about the flies and their preference for honey over vinegar, but during a pandemic I can't imagine why anyone would want to be intentionally attracting flies.

Stop the silliness would for a fucking minute? People, notably scientists, have politely asked, political figures have politely asked, regular fucking people have asked. I'm tired of asking, I'm tired of hoping the couple that stood two feet behind me, while waiting for coffee would get a fucking clue. So, pardon me if I stop kindly giving a shit about your feelings. Oh, the stop lights since you've decided are not political, in my town they've become suggestions, not requirements, because people stopped caring, because ARREST BREONNA TAYLOR'S MURDERERS.

Traffic lights are not political? M’erica is all like: hold my beer bro, gimme a minute.

Peter, mask wearing is only political because politicians make the laws, but it is the scientists that provide the back-up, the evidence that states that wearing masks limits the risk of spreading COVID. That doesn’t make it political, it is simple and basic science. They should police not wearing masks even stricter, it is about everybody’s public health...and has nothing to do with politics. So far haven’t heard any mask wearing law abiding citizens regret wearing the mask if they somehow did catch COVID, but there are plenty of anti-maskers out there that caught the rona and regretted not wearing a mask and being a stupid moron for spreading it to their loved ones when on their deathbeds ... But whatever, yes it is annoying when other people tell you to wear a mask when you and your civil liberties refuse to, but it is more annoying to be spreading Corona without such a simple gesture as a mask, like some fucktard asshole.

You know what was annoying, having to go overseas and fight the Nazis, but our grandparents did it. Wearing a mask is a small inconvenience, and social distancing is kinda nice.

Wear a mask please if you're indoors and can't stay 6' away.  If you don't I'll ask you kindly to put one on.  If you don't then I'll stay away from you.  If you don't stay away from me I will make you stay away.  

It's not hard people.  Geesh.

Relevant and Newsworthy:

CDC reverses itself and says guidelines it posted on coronavirus airborne transmission were wrong (Washington Post)

That's good to hear. Yeah science! Wait, are we sure Trumps NHS just didn't dick with the CDC's website again like how they did with testing guidelines?

 · 

That's the newsworthy part. CDC acknowledged airborne spread on the website over the weekend, then took it down this morning saying, 'oops, it was a website error, nothing to see here.

So yay science, but also ... WTF are we taking it down for? Is someone trying to "downplay" it until the election?

Republicans have been trying to shake faith in governmental agencies for my entire life, it's part of their anarchist goal: to destroy the government so they can claim it's never worked.
