    I posted a story about a woman in Pennsylvania who coughed on $35K worth of food at a grocery store. It all had to be thrown out. She's been arrested and will be charged. They are considering a terrorist charge.

    These people are disgusting.

    Never eat out. And if you do, chose a place where you can see into the kitchen.

    One day, when the world is ready I will tell the tale of when I took a friend out to dinner and how how she bitched about every bloody thing and I told the waitress that the service was fit for the Gods and the food like ambrosia. And at the end of the meal I said to the waitress, tell me that we have not been loxxed. And the waitress said no, you haven't and she gave my friend a long, pitiless stare.

    I heard of an American licking the shelves in the Supermarket. I am not sure whether he had the virus or was saying he had it and trying to get people not to buy food. Whichever it was he was arrested and charged with terrorism. The US is apparently going to treat any actions trying to spread the virus as terrorism.

    Yes, I was listening to him say a load of baloney last night - the US is the most widely tested country in the world he claimed more than once and yes desperate to get people back to work as the US toll starts to really take of. I guess he has found that he can lie as much as he wants and his followers accept it even if they know he is lying but there has to be somewhere where it no longer is funny. We are in this together regardless of political opinions.

    All good with us thanks for your thoughts mate....hopefully you and yours are okay?
    We brought our daughter home from University last weekend as they have closed it until further notice. My Son is holed up in London bored out of his brains - no gym, no sports, no work...:D

    Anyway thanks mate and stay safe.

    Intentionally doing it is one thing, an uncontrolled cough would be another

    have to use common sense

    like arresting a person for using a toy gun to rob a bank - vs arresting a child that is harmlessly playing with a toy gun

    I just hope the authorities use common sense

    as they should, the white nationalists that were plotting to do this should be treated as such

    did not hear about it, but if it was intentional, then yes, she should be charged

    Doesn't anybody stateside know that Covid-19 is VERY SUSCEPTIBLE TO WATER. Just wipe the goods clean and there is no shadow of doubt of her culpability.

    She should defy the terrorist charge (which is unprovable) and then attack the authorities (for damages) for False Arrest, which is this (from here):
    There is no guaranty that either side in that circumstance would win, but it might make the police a bit more leery about "jumping the gun" - all that is needed is not so much a good lawyer but a good-friend at the local newspaper to write up a story naming names ...

    Just because someone has the right to carry a holstered gun and a badge does not make them God ...

    What is this? No. Just no. Water alone does not kill the germs. We are talking about meat and vegetables and baked goods. Grocer did the responsible thing.

    Not that you would be able to answer, but it's kind of precious that you tried.
