    "But who said it were a scientifically valid study? It sounds as if you imply that I did. I didn't. I just posted it without any personal interpretation."

    I grant you that and stand corrected.

    What a shame.
    "OPP Sgt. Jason Folz could not confirm if the victim had a weapon. (Talia Ricci/CBC)" .... which means to me he probably wasn't armed. How much of a threat could an unarmed 73 year old man be? The police must be crazy.

    In reading the article it does not explain what caused the shooting but it did indicate other firearms were present.

    If he came at the officers with weapons they had every right to shoot him.

    NOW BEFORE YOU GET ALL UPSET .... it is my opinion that police do NOT need to shoot to kill. A simple shot or 2 to the arms or legs will normally disable the person enough that they can take them into custody and no lives are lost.

    As for the mask incident .. people need to learn to go along with the new laws .. the same as we have done for many years every time there is a new law.

    It would also be of great benefit if the stores would set up an entry person who can hand the customers a mask and explain the new policies. That is a good way to get people familiar with how things need to be for a while.

    Soon it will be come state law and no longer just up to the individual businesses so like it or not .. and believe me I know there are quite a few of you who will have a comeback .. get used to it.

    The sooner we get this virus under control the sooner we can get back to normal lives and until people begin to cover up to help slow it down .. the sooner that will happen.

    Ok ... bring it on .. come at me .. I know you will :)

    But you may be contagious and not know it. If everyone wears a mask the problem is solved.

    Masks do not work read the boxes they come in it is useless for covid. The medical/politico mafia is lying to everyone. The president of Brazil just stood in front of a large group and took his mask off and held up a bottle of HCQ after an out brake in Brazil. He knows the cure but the medical mafia is killing people and having them wear useless masks.

    viruses have always been with us. The problem will never be solved, although we will quit obsessing over it once the political incentives for it are over, or they come up with something else for people to panic over.

    your masks are useful only as a symbol of your willingness to obey.

    Agree. I've read that fully 40% of people who contract Covid-19 have NO symptoms.

    Bonus--people with colds, flu, etc. wearing masks are less likely to spread THOSE germs.

    Those who have the virus but are not sick rarely transmit the virus and your chances of catching the virus from a non-symptomatic person by passing by them in the aisle of a grocery store are probably many times less than that of being struck by lightning. Is it possible to get the virus from someone who isn't sick? Probably, but there are far more likely threats out there that are being ignored because the coronavirus is the threat of the day, and they want it to expand between now and the elections, after which we'll probably be presented with another reason to fear that we're all gonna die.

    That's because they are not sick, and many of them have not even come into contact with the virus because of the high rate of (intentional) false positives.

    I have moved the posts about police shootings to a separate thread. No, no one did anything wrong, but another topic presented itself so I separated them. The other thread can be found HERE.

    I've had people tell me they took the filters out of their masks so that they could breathe more easily.

    And I say who cares as long as they are wearing a mask.

    Beginning tomorrow night in Ohio you must wear a mask outside of your own home .. it's about time they did that again.

    They've been watching closely and it's clear that it DOES make a difference.

    As for the woman I saw yesterday at Walmart .. she will be in jail soon.

    I was there during senior hour .. masked as requested and as is SMART. Everyone was pleasant, honoring space and getting along.

    As I was leaving I heard loud voices. A female was barging into the store without a mask and cussing at the folks who were there to remind people to wear a mask and to offer a free mask to those who did not have one. She pushed past everyone including customers, flipping people off .. F'ing this and that and being the crybaby that her rights were being violated. '

    Now .. she had NO concern for herself nor any other people around her and she most certainly had zero concern for the 2 children she was dragging through this mess. Yep .. she had 2 boys with her .. my guess would be 13 and 14 years of age. Both boys were red in the face, trying to pull their t-shirt up over their mouth and nose and objecting to even going in.

    By the time my groceries were in my car and I was leaving that woman and her 2 boys were outside surrounded by store personnel and police.

    At the very least she was trespassed from that store which means when she returns to make her "point" again she will go to jail.

    There are only 2 stores in our town and this is the 2nd one she has done that at.

    People like that disgust me.
