Kids could ‘commit murder’ by not wearing masks in school, Oklahoma school board member says

A local school board member in Oklahoma said Monday that she’s worried small children might “murder” each other by spreading the coronavirus without wearing masks.

“It’s just not OK for kids to commit murder by coming to school without a mask,” said Norman Public Schools board member Linda Sexton.

“And when it comes down to it, it’s possible. They will cause a death of another child because they come to school without a mask. That’s not OK.”

Her comments occur around 1:35:00-1:37:00 in a video posted by the school board.

Sexton called on her district and others to stand up against Gov. Kevin Stitt, who is reportedly refusing to allow mask mandates for schoolchildren. In May, he passed a law prohibiting school districts from imposing mandates unless the governor has at least declared a state of emergency that’s in effect for their area.- READ MORE
