Good Going, Mr. Mayor

The wife of Alton’s mayor is accused of not following the state’s stay-at-home order.
Mayor Walker said the Alton police chief reached out to him at about 1 a.m. Sunday. He said police were investigating and stopping a gathering at a downtown Alton bar that was in violation of Illinois’ stay-at-home order.

Walker also said he learned his wife was among the people at the busted party.
The mayor said he instructed the police chief to treat his wife as he would any other citizen violating the state’s order.

“She now faces the same consequences for her ill-advised decision as the other individuals who chose to violate the ‘Stay At Home’ order during this incident,” Walker said.
That is just what should have happened.

The disappointing thing is that the Police Chief felt the need to check how to handle it. For now, kudos to the Mayor, although later details may make that less clear.

Do I detect a whiff of divorce in the air? Not likely he didn't know she was out drinking. Or at least he would have known when she got home.
What a great way to show her the door, after bailing her out of jail.

Where I come from, CP, when you buy the ticket you take the ride. Without going into too great of detail, this is having a serious impact on the quality of my life. Not worried about me, all I've lived through I'm not worried about a bug named after bad Mexican beer. The spouse, on the other hand, is a couple days shy of three months out of cut the top of her head open and took out a couple tumors the size of drumpf uck's dick. The lockdown we're going through right now is lime being locked in. I wasn't even asked to do it, it just makes filing sense. Now that we are 'asking' people to not go out and they refuse, well... if they want to put that mask on, they can wear it.

Frankly, there's a lot of community service out there that has fallen way behind, from scrubbing bedpans and dead bodies to digging mass graves; lot of trash to be picked up off the side of the roads, invasive species to be removed, septics to be pumped ...
