I’m with you, Diana Pace (The News-Review Public Forum, Sept. 12). But the charges should be downgraded to involuntary manslaughter.

I don’t understand how so many of our neighbors can care so little about basic human compassion. If wearing a mask is so detrimental to breathing, surgeons would have tossed them out long ago. Vaccines were never an issue until the Republican Party decided they would lose their freedom if they couldn’t use their right to choose.

And that’s rich, isn’t it … a woman’s body apparently doesn’t belong to her anymore. She lost her right to choose.

Douglas County residents better wake up before they can’t.

Please provide a link to your claim that "Joe and kamala said not to take the vaccine because trump developed it." I believe that is a lie.

Nope, wrong. Don't trust what you see on social media, it makes you appear that you're an easy mark to influence with lies and conspiracy: https://www.politifact.com/factchecks/2021/jul/23/tiktok-posts/biden-harris-doubted-trump-covid-19-vaccines-not-v/

Are you really this insane? To think that you can actually charge a person with manslaughter (or worse) for not wearing a mask? What about all of those people who go to work even if they have the flu - and that kills people, too? Or maybe they just go about their business and don't realize they have any illness, until they get really sick...and they have spread it around....oh, and that goes for measles, chicken pox, mumps, etc. Those are all potential threats you know.

Dozens of people have been sent to prison for not wearing a condom and spreading HIV. People have even been sent to prison when no one else was infected. How is wearing a mask more onerous that wearing a condom?

Since the mid-1980s, about 700,000 Americans have died of complications of HIV-related illness. Since March of 2020, 665,000 Americans have died of covid.
