FL Man Melts Down At Anti-Mask Town Hall: ‘I Will Not Be Muzzled Like A Mad Dog’
According to CBS 12 News, one man attending the debate over a proposed mandate for face masks in St. Lucie County lashed out during the public comments session.
- The St. Lucie County Commission held a special meeting on Friday to discuss “a Proposed ‘Order of the St. Lucie County Administrator requiring face coverings be worn in certain circumstances to slow the spread of COVID-19 particularly in public settings,” the report said.
“We are being lied to, our freedoms are being taken forever and I will not be muzzled like a mad dog,” the man stood up and blasted St. Lucie County commissioners for considering the mask mandate. “This is sick and you ought to be ashamed of yourself for being a part of this.”
- Commissioner Chris Dzadovsky said, “it ain’t easy, but I don’t want to be dead.”
- In addition, the mayor of the largest city in the county stated, “Hundreds of citizens have contacted me regarding this issue over the last couple of weeks and the overwhelming majority have been in favor of a mandatory order with a very spirited minority in opposition.”
Port St. Lucie Mayor Greg Oravec wrote in a Facebook post, “Please note that Martin County went forward with a mandatory order, Alachua County stuck with their mandatory order after considering the input of the City of Gainesville, and the lawsuits against Alachua County failed to convince a state circuit court judge or a federal circuit court judge to grant an injunction against the order.”
After a heated debate, “leaders decided to continue the meeting on July 1,” the report concluded.
