WTF is wrong with people. Seriously Idiot. In Canada we arrest this kind of people so many Morons!! Thats the taiwan has done it since day one , mandatory mask , if caught without , in jail.

Who does this? Should be made to pay for the groceries and jailed, this is a bio-terrorist threat !! Told someone this news story. Response? 'He should be locked up until COVID19 issue ends, forced to pay for all food wasted, and fed food that's coughed and spit on every day by a different person.' Very fair. Some would go further.
Nothing like a few weeks in jail won’t fix? They’re coming out of the woodwork! Chinese lady spitting on food arrested the following day when she returned. Should have been kicked in the teeth Well, get him back to his hospital room. Everything will be better again at lights out, Mr. Crazy. What is wrong with people?
