Louisiana woman arrested after demanding Walmart customers wear masks
A Louisiana woman was arrested after it was reported that she went into a Walmart and began demanding that people start wearing masks. The freakout ended with the woman stomping on a police officers foot as she was being arrested and escorted from the building. She was reportedly heard yelling “police brutality” as she was dragged away in handcuffs.
According to the police report, Jo Boihem was described as frantic and agitated after she saw countless people in the store not wearing masks. The police report also stated she confronted a patron and expressed her “disgust” about the victim’s lack of her health concern. Kenner police say they attempted to calm Boihem and explained to her that it wasn’t her responsibility to enforce the policies of Walmart or the governor’s orders on another patron.
Kenner Louisiana is located in Jefferson Parish which has a population of about 430,000 people. Among that population, they have experienced about 500 covid-related deaths. So in the area where this lady was going crazy the virus is close to that 99.99% survivability rate that we are seeing across the country. I understand that she was in her 70s so maybe she is possibly at risk for the virus, but she was clearly not too old to fight with the police that were trying to calm her down.
This is why we need to deescalate the whole mask war being waged by all of these mask nazis. We need to get to a point where the people who want to wear one can wear one and the people who don’t want to wear one don’t have to wear one, and everyone can go about their day without a serious fight breaking out over a stupid cloth mask.
Ultimately the masks do nothing anyway other than make people feel slightly better. These governors and Media heads that are pushing masks as if they are the only thing standing between life and death need to bear some of the responsibility for whipping up this hysteria. Too often we are seeing these stupid and pointless fights breaking out over people refusing to wear a mask. It needs to stop. Sad that it had to come to a woman being hauled away in handcuffs, but that is where we are now.
