Good. I hope that all municipal governments and police departments remember who they serve.
An Oklahoma city has reversed an emergency proclamation requiring shoppers to wear face masks due to threats of violence.
Stillwater, located about 65 miles northeast of Oklahoma City, started to reopen businesses on Friday morning as part of the state’s phased-opening program. That included salons, barber shops, restaurants, gyms, museums and movie theaters.
The city had required customers to wear masks in stores and restaurants. But the mayor quickly amended that policy on Friday afternoon after employees were “threatened with physical violence and showered with verbal abuse” in the span of three hours, Stillwater City Manager Norman McNickle said in a statement. There was one threat of violence using a firearm, he added.
And if you want to wear a mask, then by all means… wear a mask.
