The mayor of Alton, Illinois told his police department to crack down on anyone violating the Illinois “stay-at-home” order. The police did just that — and cited the mayor’s wife at a downtown tavern. Alton Mayor Brant Walker revealed in a Monday Facebook post that one of several people cited at a downtown bar early Sunday was his wife, Shannon Walker. Walker said the Alton police chief contacted him about 1 a.m. Sunday to say they were investigating and stopping a gathering at a bar downtown that was in violation of Illinois’ stay-at-home order. “I was also made aware that my wife was in attendance at this prohibited social gathering,” Walker wrote. “I instructed the Police Chief to treat her as he would any citizen violating the “Stay At Home” order and to ensure that she received no special treatment.” A reporter’s request for comment from Shannon Walker was answered with a statement that the mayor had no further comment on the matter.

Incensed that his fellow Floridians were not wearing masks and gloves to the pharmacy and supermarket, a 62-year-old man yesterday warned on Facebook that if he were to test positive for the Coronavirus, “I will head right to Publix and empty every Clip I own!” Police say that Robert Kovner’s 4:23 p.m. post declared that, “I FIND it criminal that you enter the supermarket or pharmacy without a mask, as if you are either too stupid to understand the danger your spreading or so selfish that you don’t give a f--k that your endangering others?” The post was eventually deleted, but not before it came to the attention of police, who questioned Kovner at his home in Sebring, a central Florida city. Citing the “significance of the threatening post made on Facebook,” Kovner was arrested for threatening to conduct a mass shooting, a felony. He was booked into the county jail in lieu of $30,000 bond. (https://bit.ly/3agma9k)
