Police Reportedly Arrest Disabled Vet Who Refused to Wear a Mask
Meanwhile in San Antonio, Texas, police have reportedly arrested an alleged disabled veteran who refused to comply with a mask mandate inside a mall. As a reminder, San Antonio is an American city. Watch the footage below and tell me it doesn't tick you right off.

According to The Washington Examiner:
The San Antonio Police Department told the Washington Examiner that the man, identified as Eric Matthew Braden, was arrested and charged with criminal trespass-private property after protesting in the mall and not wearing a mask.
"Officers responded to North Star Mall for an unplanned but organized protest event. Mall security and an off duty officer were confronted by a group of protesters who refused to wear face mask, were given a criminal trespass warning, and told to leave the property. Security and the off duty officer had to take one male into custody who was attempting to escalate the situation, but the remaining participants left without further incident. The male was arrested for criminal trespass private property and was transported to University Hospital by EMS with complaints of a pre-existing back injury. All notifications were made aware of the incident," police said.
I'll need to be super clear here, since the video is only showing the arrest. We do not yet have footage of what led to the arrest. According to the Examiner's report from police, mall security and an off duty officer were confronted first. I'm not sure how they were confronted. I'm not sure if tense words were exchanged, or fists were thrown. What I will say is, during the Black Lives Matter protests (mostly peaceful, according to media), plenty of mostly peaceful protesters confronted police or were violent against civilians. Those protesters didn't always face the legal music. But don't take my word for it:
Yet in a mall for an unplanned but organized protest against mask mandates, several officers took down a man without a mask.
I'd like to note the "Defund the police!" movement gained momentum post George Floyd. There wasn't much calling for defunding the police when police were acting tyrannical in carrying out their orders for COVID lockdowns. Take, for example, the Wisconsin authorities who scolded a mom for allowing a play date, or the police officers who tased a woman watching her son at a football game. Also the police officers going after a restaurant owner for blockading a health department official's car... they still have their jobs and, as far as I know, no one has called for defunding them.
Think about it.
