Tari Renner started last night’s meeting with a Small Business Saturday proclamation. I wonder how he explains reports on social media of the POLICE being used to close down restaurants in town that refused to stop in-door dining. (Possibly more on that one in the future) Reports are the police told the diners to leave or there would be consequences. What consequences?
Later in the meeting Renner accused Don Knapp again of blocking enforcement by the Health Department. Obviously Renner has no idea how laws work. If any establishments are still letting people inside and the police show up, make them state what LAW is being violated. “Public Safety” doesn’t void the Constitution regardless of Renner’s beliefs. Bullying does nothing to promote good relations between the police and citizens.
At the beginning of the meeting Renner wants you to shop local, even though the City staff heavily uses Amazon. At the end of the meeting he makes clear he wants you and businesses that allow indoor dining prosecuted.
Keep it up Tari, soon there won’t be any place to in-door dine. They’ve had close to 9 months of government targeting them. Contrary to what Renner Democrats think, business owners don’t have piles of cash in the back room.
Look at the stats, it’s easy to see 20-somethings get COVID far more often than other age groups. If you are over 60 the solution is easy: Stay away from the 20-somethings: https://health.mcleancountyil.gov/708/CORONAVIRUS-COVID-19
49 deaths out of 7673 cases! The death rate is miniscule!
Comments claiming I don’t care about people dying will be deleted.
Tari wants violations reported to the Health Department or the City Legal Department. He left off dialing 911.
