Yet another citizen has been reduced to a common criminal thanks to unconstitutional mask orders. This time, it’s a mother who was simply watching a school football game with the audacity not to have her nose and mouth covered.
According to the New York Post, Ohio mother Alecia Kitts was sitting in the bleachers with her mother and children at a middle school football game on Wednesday when she was approached by a police officer for not wearing a mask or face covering.
In the confrontation, the officer told Kitts she was under arrest. When she resisted, she was reportedly tased and forcibly handcuffed.
In the altercation, caught on video and uploaded to YouTube, Kits repeatedly tells the officer to “get off” of her.
“You’re not arresting me for nothing, I ain’t doing nothing wrong,” she shouted when the officer ordered her to put her hands behind her back.
The officer then discharged his taser at Kitts, a show of force that upset others at the game.
“Tasing this lady over not wearing a damn mask,” one witness says in the video.
“Come on, it’s just a mask!” her mother pleaded with the officer as he hauled Kitts away.
The Logan Police Department told a local paper that the incident is under investigation, the Post reports.
