The public health officer in a politically conservative county in northwestern Montana has resigned his post to ease "the strife and conflict coming from a minority of people objecting" to his recommendations in dealing with the coronavirus.

I don't blame him for resigning...these idiots are dangerous and will think nothing about making death threats against them or their families. What this ends up doing is telling the morons they can win by being repulsive and vile which makes their behavior worse until the children gets an official that will do what they want to the detriment of everyone.

This is why you don't give into the two year olds kicking and screaming on the floor of the store. These GQP are the no different and in many ways worse.

Trumpers are the problem, Covid is the solution. Let's pay Wuhan to make a more deadly strain.

Shame on him for resigning. We need public officials willing to take the heat in this pandemic, especially in the face of ignorant right wing hostility to science and the truth.

Will you care for his family when he gets shot moder8?

Yeah. That's what I thought.

The high nooning of health officials will be remembered worse than innocent people being hung out to dry during mccarthyism.

Each one of these health officials should be given a gun, and free reign over how often they use it to defend themselves. I think one or two dead MAGAts might be enough, but they're pretty stooopid, so maybe it'll take a half dozen or more before they figure out that people take their threats seriously. Showing up to somebody's house to menace them and their kids should be considered a personal attack with dire consequences.

#7 If I ended up on jury duty for a PHO who offed some MAGAts, a signed confession and video would still result in a not guilty verdict.

#8 - people like you are why we have problems in our justice system.

I hope you would be honest enough during jury selection to let that be known.

#8 - it would take 11 other dishonest jurors to come up with a not guilty verdict. If you were the only non-objective one, the best you could hope for is a hung jury, in which case a new trial would take place and hopefully one with 12 objective jurors.

Also, if there was a signed confession, there would be no trial much less a jury you could hang.

You appear to be somewhat unfamiliar with the way the judicial system operates in the US, Bored.
