    I don’t have a problem with the guy being upset, but I do have a problem with him being upset to the point of becoming violent. I mean c’mon man. In today’s pandemic world, he should not be surprised to be asked to wear a mask at certain retail establishments.

    Now this guy will probably be charged with attempted murder and spend a good amount of time imprisoned simply because he didn’t want to wear a mask for a few minutes while visiting an Apple Store. What a shame.

    The epitome of fragility is doing what you’re told without question.

    You might want to look up fragile in the dictionary for a refresher. Anyway, this person is clearly not stable and needs help or supervision.

    I think some of you are reading too much into the mask thing. I think this is just typical Noo Yawk behavior that is being reported on nationally under the guise of the mask.

    Dang…Stabbing a retail security guard for trying to enforce a mask mandate is typical in New York? That’s crazy!

    What’s a shame is that we’re not surprised when we hear stuff like this. The pandemic has been going on for over a year and half. Just wear your mask. Period.

    I didn’t say they only happene in Noo Yawk. I’m saying it’s not surprising that there was a stabbing considering the location.

    People like to characterize things, people, places they know little about (usually). People who live in the sticks think NY is a "crap hole" as you put it. People who live in the city think everyone from the sticks is an uneducated hick. My point is that is why we are in the current situation in this country, disrespect for each other.

    No offense, but you take this way too seriously. If I think southerners are hicks and I also think that north easterners are full of themselves why take that as disrespect? Laugh it off and make a stereotypical joke back at me.

    I am a serious person, especially when it comes to things like stabbings. Call me odd.

    1. I’ve already had Covid so I have natural immunity.
    2. I’m fully vaccinated.
    3. Cloth mask don’t work. It’s science.
    3. Until actual laws are passed requiring that I wear a mask it is my choice.

    I agree with all of the above but it doesn’t make sense if you want to enter a private business. Just as you and I have our privacy rights, I can’t force my beliefs on a private business.

    Agree. I make the choice to either not do business with a company or comply with their mask policy. I usually chose to not do business with them but sometimes you don’t have a choice.

    In 2020 when the state government had a mask mandate I ignored it. I was more willing to accommodate a business than an overreaching government though.

    We have to remember that these limits are only temporary. As infections and deaths decrease, so do the mandates.
    I don’t think the government is overreaching when it’s trying to protect the public. Again, it’s temporary and not a difficult thing to do.
    Working in a hospital I have been wearing one now for almost 2 years. Yup, it’s a PITA but I’ve pretty much gotten used to it. Looking forward to the day we don’t have to, I can’t lie about that!

    It doesn’t seem temporary. Remember 2 weeks to flatten the curve in March 2020?
