DC Mayor Says 'Nothing Scarier' than talking to people without a mask

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser has entrusted her darkest fears to the few thousand close trustees who track her on Twitter.

“There’s nothing more terrifying than sharing a chat with someone who’s not wearing a mask. Don’t scare others about it. #MaskUpDC,” she tweeted on Friday.

Bowser gave D.C. on Thursday. Residents have a difficult debate on the issue of the following government directives surrounding coronavirus.

“We must all recall all the suggestions we have provided during the last few weeks … don’t get tired of being careful about COVID,” said the Democratic Mayor, according to WTOP-TV.

“Take your mask, cap your journeys. Don’t want to do all of this on the same day from shopping, cooking, to getting your hair done. Be careful of the informal meetings. People who are at home or at the home of a family member, with people they know—they let their defenses down,” she said.

Bowser also added D.C. It can also enforce additional limits on its citizens.

Bowser’s mask tweet was roundly mocked.

Last weekend, Bowser’s own activities were in the spotlight as she flew to Delaware, which is on the list of high-risk states, to be present when Joe Biden gave a speech to honor the fact that media organizations had proclaimed him the winner of the presidential election.

It’s D.C. Health Director Dr. LaQuandra Nesbitt said that the uptick in cases was presumably not due to the timing of the polls, but may be related to Halloween, according to the WTOP.

“Some people may have been celebrating in a conventional manner, holding small parties or traveling to certain places or social events where they are doing as is normal across the U.S., spending time in households and indoor gatherings,” Nesbitt said according to WTOP.

Is it an absurd comment?

She also criticized individuals gathering in small groups for not agreeing with the law.

“But 60 percent of people who record social interaction claim that social distance or mask-wearing has not been adhered to so people don’t wear a mask, they let their guard down,” Nesbitt said.

“And this is really a concept or a construction in which people who are out in these social contexts or attend social-related activities are more likely to be in these smaller intimate spaces, where social distances and wearing masks are not consistent.”

After 8 straight games as favorites, Ravens are slight underdogs in rematch vs. Browns

After 8 straight games as favorites, Ravens are slight underdogs in rematch vs. Browns

The Ravens are slight underdogs ahead of their rematch Sunday with the host Cleveland Browns, according to Las Vegas sportsbooks.

The Ravens (8-4) have entered their past eight games as favorites, but after falling to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night and losing star cornerback Marlon Humphrey to a season-ending pectoral injury, it’s the Browns (6-6) who are favored by 2 ½ points in their Week 14 game.

The Ravens held on late in the teams’ first meeting this season, a 16-10 win in Baltimore two weeks ago, but Cleveland should have a rest advantage this weekend. Because the Browns had a Week 13 bye, Sunday’s game will be their second straight against the Ravens, who will have to face standout defensive ends Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney without injured starting right tackle Patrick Mekari (hand).

The Ravens have covered the spread in two of their six road games this season: a 23-7 win in Week 4 over a favored Denver Broncos team and a 16-13 comeback win in Week 12 over the Chicago Bears. Cleveland, meanwhile, is 4-2 at home this season, but just 2-4 against the spread.

The Ravens lead the all-time series 34-11 and have won four straight meetings, their longest winning streak since a five-game run from 2015 to 2017. The Browns’ last home win over the Ravens came in October 2018, when Joe Flacco was still the Ravens’ starting quarterback.

The over-under for Sunday’s game is 42 ½ points.

Former St. Louis officer made $50K for unworked security hours

ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis Police officer hired to work security on his off-duty hours lied on his timesheets and bilked his employer and city taxpayers of tens of thousands of dollars over a two-year period.

Officer Brad Stephens pleaded guilty Monday to three counts of mail fraud. He’ll be sentenced on March 11, 2022.

According to the plea agreement, Stephens had worked for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department since Oct. 2014. Beginning in 2015, he dedicated some of his off-duty time to working for City Wide Security, a private company that contracts with local businesses and organizations to provide security patrols in the Tower Grove South neighborhood.

Stephens filed false documentation regarding his hours worked. In 2018, Stephens falsely represented that he worked 93 days. In 2019, Stephens falsely claimed that he worked 76 days. All told, CWS received $50,000 from businesses and organizations in Tower Grove South for all the hours Stephens claimed to have worked.
