Those Who Play with Covid Fire Deserve the Consequences
It can be infuriating to read of these scofflaws who organize Covid parties or anti-mask rallies that, like moths to a flame, draw the village idiots to gather and expose themselves to the increasingly contagious virus.
Covid, of course, is highly transmissible. Those who defy public health requirements can put not only their health but those of innocents they subsequently deal with in undeserved jeopardy. A perfect example was last summer's Sturgis motorcycle rally where bikers not only became infected but carried the virus home.
Society may not have the right to compel people to accept vaccination but we do have the right to demand that they not pose a public health menace, worsening and prolonging this infernal pandemic.
A good place to start is with those who host Covid parties that lead to the deaths of partiers or, worse, others be charged with manslaughter.
People who break health rules by holding parties that lead to death from COVID-19 should heed the warning from a British Columbia judge about facing a manslaughter charge, legal experts say.
Prof. Lisa Dufraimont of York University’s Osgoode Hall law school said manslaughter charges stem from an unlawful act that causes death and a foreseeable activity that could cause bodily harm.
It seems eminently fair that we take these for-profit Typhoid Marys for an all-expenses paid party in the Greybar Hotel. We could even arrange a super-cell where they could mingle, mask free, with like-minded felons while they served their sentences.
